Summary: The game is more action-packed than Mario Kart. The speed is higher, but there are flaws. 1. Tracks- there are only a dozen tracks, and you'll get bored with them. 2. Power-ups- People say they're a rip-off of the Mario Kart games, but SEGA did the same thing with Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing.
Summary: This racing game is good and it's fun also. No, it's not as good as Mario Kart, but it is similar and handles the same way. You can shoot bombs, missiles and other things at your opponents. I was happy with it. The controls are relatively easy to handle also.
Summary: Bought this as a late birthday present for my son. He and my guy played it constantly for a couple of weeks! They LOVE it. It is VERY much like MarioKarts, with surprise boxes and things getting thrown to distract other drivers.
