damn good kart racer

Summary:

The Mario Kart series has been around for nearly two decades, but none of the games are quite as good as this one right here - Diddy Kong Racing. It seemed like Rare played through Mario Kart 64 and asked themselves "okay now how can we make this *bleep*ing awesome!?" They answered this by having a more diverse bunch of characters with a couple being unlockable, having a few different gameplay modes, adding in hovercrafts and biplanes, and putting together some truly interesting looking tracks with some slick and tight layouts. It doesn't move as fast as Mario Kart 64, but Diddy Kong Racing...

Average Game

The good:

Good: A wide range of characters, Plenty of stages, Fun multiplayer mode. 3 difrent vehicles

Summary:

In Diddy Kong Racing. You can experience strugling to drive in airplane through a volcano, or go to the sea and use the slick hover craft. Or maybe you prefer the slow and annoying car that goes 2 miles an hour under water? Diddy Kong racing besides some vehicle problems and hard steering is a exceptional game.

Theres a quick race mode where you can play the levels you beat before in adventure mode. In Adventure mode theres an overworld you drive around in collecting ballons, you need a certain ammount of ballons to open up a world, In each world theres 4 levels and a somewhat hard boss....

Diddy Kong Racing

The good:

Graphics were great of its time, multiplayer is just Godly when it comes to fun factor, it may look easy, but it has a lot more difficulty than it shows at first sight, and fun characters.

The bad:

Difficulty is a bit hard, but it only makes you want to play it more.

Summary:

Okay , this is just one awesome game. Like Mario Kart 64, its really fun and hard to put down when you start playing it, because you get into it so much that its just impossible to leave alone. Thats a good thing since its always fun and proves to be excellent in every way possible. Although mostly directed to the younger crowd, its definitely not limited to them.

First of all, believe me when I say there are LOTS to do in this game. You can do all sorts of racing levels by starting out and driving/hovercrafting/flying over to selected areas and then entering a specific level that you want ...

Poorman's Mario Kart 64

The good:

Good game with friends or if you're bored
Good for its time

The bad:

Hovercraft
Slightly random character sounds

Summary:

Lastability: 7/10.
Once you're done with the Adventure mode, all that's left is to unlock the 2 secret characters if you haven't already. If you have, there's always replaying some tracks in Tracks Mode, and beating your times again. Playing with your friends is also a good idea.
Graphics: 9/10.
For it's time, it's quite good. The game was very easy on the eyes, while showing some very good visuals.
Sound: 8/10.
Some of the sounds can be random (complaining when you get in front of whoever was in first place, or cheering that you're losing, wtf???), but other than that, it's all good.
Gameplay: 7...

How can such an old game be so GOOD!?

The good:

Characters, courses, multiplayer, gameplay, replayabilty, and so much more.

And the graphics are surprisingly good for an old game.

The game OBVIOUSLY focuses on the cute side, and that's not a bad thing.

The bad:

I really can't think of anything. Wow.

Summary:

Lol, I was thinking of typing a review and then I slapped myself and said, "I forgot Diddy Kong Racing!" Well anyways, this game is pretty much perfection.

Compared to a lot of other crappy kart racers out there. People just don't get the damn point. Diddy Kong Racing was able to attract a lot of people and was one of the VERY FEW kart racers out there that got a good grade on a lot of websites.

You have OTHER karting games which are like....whoa....

Mario Kart was great and all but they REALLY are starting to overdo it. OKAY PEOPLE, YOU'RE MAKING THE FRIGGIN' 5TH MARIO KART ON THE DS. YOU CAN...

Diddy Kong Racing

The good:

Very fun on multi-player.
A long game which is really hard.

The bad:

The graphics are a little jerky.

Summary:

Diddy Kong Racing features Diddy Kong and a handful of his pals from various other rareware games. It's a cartoony racing game that you can race in cars, hovercrafts and planes and even race against a giant pig that runs and fly's. There is much to do, especially story mode which is a lot of fun but there is also time trial and multi-player battles. Multi-player can go up to 4 player and it's a head on head battle or a race just like Mario Kart. The graphics aren't that great and can sometimes mess up the game a little because you don't understand what is going on but that is usually on the...
