This game was as absolute waste of my time. I only wish I could have the time that I put into it back. Bad graphics, bad sound, bad driving physics, bad or non-existent A.I.... I could go on but I'm sure you get the idea. In a word.....BAD.(Gamefly didn't like my first choice in a word so bad will have to do)
Diddy Kong Racing used to be one of my favorite titles for the N64. This port, however, has changed my view on the title considerably. The game was made to easy with the addition of the upgrade tent and the ability to boost at the beginnings of races is almost useless because of the super human skill it takes to do it. I say if you want a trip down memory lane then this game is great for that but other than that don't waste your time on a lackluster racing title on the DS when you could just get Mario Cart DS.
