Diddy Kong Racing Make Up for Mario Kart's Shortcomings

26 November 1997
  • Excerpt: Several months after the somewhat disappointing Mario Kart 64 was released, Rareware learns from Miyamoto's mistakes and comes out with a Mario-esque racer that goes above and beyond any racer released on the Nintendo 64. Diddy Kong Racing, to the casual gamer, might look identical to Mario Kart 64, but in essence, it's a whole new game. Sure, there is your typical racing, but it doesn't end there. The game is one all-out adventure.

  • Excerpt: Often, a popular character will unsuccessfully be fitted into other genres, and sold on the name alone. This proves not to be the case in Nintendo's Diddy Kong Racing, a Nintendo 64 racer which proves itself an excellent, self-standing racing title.

  • Conclusion: Wer ein paar Freunde in der Nähe hat, die gerne Rennspiele spielen, ist mit diesem Spiel gut beraten. Allerdings sollte keine Rennsimulation, sondern eher ein Action-Rennen erwartet werden. Der Einspieler-Modus macht lange Zeit Spaß. Bis das wirkliche Ende (nicht die 2,5 vorzeitigen) erreicht ist, ist langer Spielspaß garantiert. Die Grafik ist super, und der Sound einfach genial.
