  • 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. The game mainly consists of winning races in order to progress through the adventure mode, unlocking new tracks and battle arenas...
  • Pros: 2 Player adventure mode, 3 types of vehicles, a lot of tracks .
  • Cons: AI can seem too easy, but when you reach the 2nd adventure it becomes harder .

  • 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: 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 !

A RARE Treat

  • Excerpt: This is where it all started; Banjo, Conker and other characters rumoured to have their own games. It wasn't for this we wouldn't have Banjo-Kazooie or Conker's BFD, two of the best and most sought after games to grace a cartridge on the N64.
  • Pros: Amazing Racing and Adventure Elements
  • Cons: No Apparant Faults

Diddy Rules

  • Excerpt: Your first thoughts of Diddy Kong Racing are probably that it's a silly cartoon racer. Well it kind of is, but the main difference is that there is an adventure mode and you can race as a car, hovercraft or plane with any character.It brings new depth to racing that was lacking in the Mario Kart...
  • Pros: A long lasting one player and a brilliant battle mode
  • Cons: Maybe too cutesy for some people

  • Excerpt: This has to be one of my all time favourite games for the N64 . It has levels for players of all abilities - easy track races for beginners and much harder levels to win trophies and new levels . And it's just plain cute .
  • Pros: Fab graphics , Good handling on most of the characters , Interesting
  • Cons: One or two of the characters hard to handle , Quite difficult at the end

  • Excerpt: I borrowed this off a mate in 1998, and he hasn't had it back yet! This involves some of the characters from the Nintendo games throughout Nintendo's life - Diddy, Yoshi, and Mario to name but a few! Cuteness aside, this is a great little race em up!

  • Pros: Its by Rare, its amazing !
