Mario Kart DS

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Mario Kart has been around since the Super Nintendo days. In fact just about every video game machine Nintendo has released since the SNES has gotten a Mario Kart game. Nine days shy of eleven months since the release of the Nintendo DS - Mario Kart DS arrived. This is the father of all kart racing games. Do not expect a real life racing simulator. This is more about racing fun.

Fresh, fun go-karting with cartoonish mischief.

Common Sense Media
28 October 2007
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this go-kart racing game has cartoonish, mischievous violence as players try to take each other out with various power-ups. Drivers lob turtle shells and balloons at opponents, leave banana peels for them to slide on, jolt them with lightning, leave bombs for them to run over, and squirt ink on windshields. When hit, karts spin out for a few seconds then keep on going.

Mario Kart 7 Review

GameSpot
19 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Mario Kart hangs over the precipice of chaos. With weapons that can change positioning in a heartbeat, racing in this enduring franchise often takes a backseat to the item-flinging festivities. It's a tenuous position, and each iteration has dealt with how to balance these two disparate components--the skill of driving and the randomness of items--in different ways.
  • Pros: Excellent track design, Competing against the AI or humans is always exciting, Rebalanced items shift the focus to driving, Hang gliding is a great addition
  • Cons: No mission mode, Questionable online decisions

  • Excerpt: I was first confronted with this situation in my local multimedia retailer. A strange elf-like fellow held these two products up before my eyes. With little to spend, I found I had to make a hard decision. In order to prevent you from facing the same situation, I've wrote a comparative analysis.

Mario Kart DS Review

GameSpot
9 October 2007
  • Excerpt: If you've ever been the proud owner of a Nintendo system, or have at least befriended somebody with one, odds are you've encountered a Mario Kart game at some point. The popular racing series, which first appeared on the Super Nintendo in 1992, lets you race your favorite Nintendo characters against each other in karts that can be armed with such devastating weapons as banana peels, opponent-seeking red shells, and opponent-shrinking lightning bolts.
  • Pros: Eight players with a single copy of the game, Classic gameplay is better than ever, Plenty of single-player content, Lots of fun stuff to unlock, Human competition from all over the world
  • Cons: Hanging out at McDonald's to play online

Mario Kart DS Review

VideoGamer.com
29 September 2007
  • Excerpt: There's probably an unwritten rule somewhere: If you're a keen gamer, at some point you're undoubtedly going to own a copy of (or at least play) Mario Kart. The First Law of Nintendo, if you will. It's not really surprising, given that Nintendo have produced a version of Mario Kart for practically all of their consoles since time immemorial, which means that this particular version has a massive reputation to live up to.
