Diddy Kong Racing review
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: 7/10.
For a Mario Kart rip-off (at least that's what I'm thinking it is), it plays quite well. The controls are responsive, the plane handles quite well and, well, I guess everything else is quite good. The hovercraft levels, though, aren't that great. It handles awkwardly, and can annoy you badly.
Overall: 3.8/5.0
Recommended if you like Mario Kart with non-Mario characters.
