This game takes everything you loved about previous Mario Kart games and puts it in the palm of your hand! There is a reasonable selection of drivers and each has multiple cars available. The single player games is a series of races known as cups and the game uses a point system to determine who wins the series. You'll find all the lovable gameplay normally associated with a Mario game. Turtle shells, star power, and chain chomps just to name a few. The tracks are well done and challenging and you'll get many hours of fun if you find a friend to race against or battle in the different multiplayer modes

In short, if you have a DS and you haven't played this game you NEED to and you might as well convince a friend or two to rent it too just so you get the most of your rental.

This is a great game! ESPECIALLY FOR MARIOKART FANS!!! Ever hate how with other Mariokart games(Mariokart, Mariokart 64, Mariokart Double Dash) you need another controller + in some cases an adapter and another game(Mariokart advanced, Mariokart Wii) to play multiplayer or online? Well with this all you need is the two DS'(or up to 8 max) and one game thanks to game download. You start with 8 characters and 2 karts per character and unlock multiple grand prix. there are 2 battle modes in which you may battle CPU's or friends. The only thing think sucks is if you are the downloader you can't choose you're character. If you like this game you may like any other Mariokarts(Check GBA, GC, Wii at GameFly and if you want put it on Game Q) or "The New Mario Bros."

Mario Kart ds is one of those games where your just gonna say "WOW". With 32 unlockable tracks,(16 old tracks and 16 new tracks) 16 unlockable characters, and 36 karts, this game never gets old! Also this game features 3D graphics and beautiful music how can you pass up such a great game!
This game features 6 modes: Grand Prix, Time Trials, VS., Battle mode, and an all new mission mode! In mission mode you will face some fun challenges such as, Drive through the 8 rings, collect 30 coins...Backwards! and many, many more. There are 6 sets of missions. Each set of missions include a final boss battle. You'll find that many of the bosses you will face are from Super Mario 64.This game has a two player mode with ds download play and wireless play. This is the game that first introduced Nintendo Wi-fi and is quite amazing. You get to connect to the internet, and then race with people around the world! You are allowed to race up to 3 other people at a time.
I really recommend this game it is my favorite and I bet it will be your favorite to!
