  • Excerpt: Diddy Kong racing was one of the first games i ever played on the N64, built in a design some people viewed as similar to Mario Kart 64 this is not a game to miss out on.

  • Pros: 2 Player adventure mode, 3 types of vehicles, a lot of tracks .

  • Excerpt: The N64 game Diddy Kong Racing is the first game that pops into my head when I think of games that I enjoyed as a youth. It's simplicity was a great introductory game to the console and it's cheerful characters, courses and graphics appealed to just about everyone.
  • Pros: Suitable for all ages, great fun, colourful
  • Cons: Not all that challenging

  • Excerpt: Dare I make this statement? Yeah I dare. Diddy Kong Racing kicked Mario Kart 64 into the blue yonder. The tiny ape was severely favoured on this console in this racing spin off of the Donkey Kong franchise. There was a story to the game.

  • Excerpt: A couple of weeks ago we rediscovered the old N64 in the back of a cupboard. This old console has suddenly become really popular in our house, and one of the kids' favourite games is Diddy Kong racing.

  • Excerpt: Animal friends Diddy and Co. race to beat away the bully Wizpig...who has ruined T.T the clocks race island. It's truly a great game...as any N64 gamer will no. Loads of courses...characters...challenges...and collectables make this a true winner.

  • Excerpt: Wow, what can I say? I dug my N64 out of the cupboard a few weeks ago and decided to play this game, thinking it would just pass the time. I was soon addicted and playing daily! It's amazing to think you have a 1997 game that is still great today.
  • Pros: Fast paced, great graphics, nice music, takes a long time to finish
  • Cons: None really !
