It's OK

I like racing games and I like Donkey Kong games...I thought this game would be awesome. But, unfortunately, it falls short. The tracks are repetitive and the movements are strange. It's okay to play for a little bit but it gets tiring after a while. The replay value just isn't there.

We absolutely loved this game. Yes, it was written for the DS originally but it is loads of fun on the Wii. The one thing we had a little problem with was opening other races after completing a course. Hoping that once we buy the game we will be able to open those easily.

Weak

Sluggish Racing, Poor Controls

Thought this might be fun to try, since we usually like wacky racing games. Very disappointed, as controls are difficult, resulting in a lot of random and inopportune jumping. In addition, the max speed is slow, so you find yourself constantly trying to accelerate beyond max speed. Finally, there's little to no steering, as your racer will follow the track even if you don't do anything. Could've been a lot of fun, but was just very frustrating instead.
