Fun But Big Battery User

Fredip, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: I really enjoyed playing this game but found that if I left the unit on it ate up battery life like there was no tomorrow. I actually thought something was wrong with my existing battery or the DS itself because the battery took forever to get any charge on it and once it did, the charge unloaded in a matter of an hour or so. Once I took the game out and installed a different one, the DS (and its battery) performed normally.

  • Pros: Good opportunity for multiplaying via Wifi or wirelessly
  • Cons: You never feel like you are going fast in the game

  • Summary: This game has all the racing fun a kid could want but can be a little tricky to control on the DS, however, it is still hours of fun.

Mario Kart DS

  • Summary: There was a fault with the game card, making the screen light blink and the power light flicker also when the DS console is shut. The game at least functions well. My sister enjoys it so kudos to the creators!

Mario Kart DS (DS): Mario Kart DS

kaljao, Dooyoo
16 March 2010
  • Summary: I think that Mario Kart on the DS is one of the best games on the DS, but it is still way behind the Wii version, but that is mainly because the graphics of the DS are on the whole poor. You use all the buttons on the DS to control your kart, which makes it a lot harder than simply pressing go and stop. There are a couple of game modes, the main one being Grand Prix which has three classes of race by engine size.
  • Pros: One of the better games for the DS
  • Cons: Not as good as the Wii version

  • Excerpt: "Mario Kart is a mere cousin comapred to the greatness of the mario family tree. The game itself is good yet we all expect a liitle bit more from mario. The game has a variety of race tracks, karts and weapons to use. The versus mode is highly adaptable for any type of 1on1, grudge match or even playing around the world. The racing itself is good. The idea of winning different grand prixs to ascend to karting greatness stirs the hidden lewis hamilton ...
