It's totally worth that $35 price you would see at the store! This game features that amazing Wi-Fi Connection, and even besides that, it is still a great game. For the first time you can do single player VS (Which is like Quick Run in Super Circuit) and Battles. There are 16 new tracks, along with 4 remade tracks from each of the previous MK titles, making a total of 32 race tracks, a record. (Actually, Super Circuit for GBA had 40, but they weren't all so detailed or long.) Also, there are missions in single player mode which have some pretty fun tasks. You will love the experience of racing other players around the world. Also, the graphics are awesome, they are between N64 and Gamecube quality. You can also unlock other karts for racers, there are like 5 total for each character, and you can use other characters karts with a different racer. This game is awesome anyway you think of it, I would rate it a 10 even without the Wi-Fi! I am not returning this one, I'm keeping it, It is worth the money to keep it.

So when I first played this game a few years back i thought it was dumb. Now i realize its awesome!!! So...why is it so awesome solion? im glad you asked random guy on the computer. so you see nintendo has taken all the mario characters and joined them to race. same as before right? WRONG!!! you now have many more abilitys, and many more in to come in later games. new coreses and retro coreses,meaning from past games, just given a little boost in graphics. And dont forget...the ds has wi-fi,so...you can race anyone!!!anywere!!! well you have to have connection wich means you might want to get a dsi cause it makes it easier to program it. i thought atleast... well i ment the other person can be anywhere around the globe! luckly you wont chat so you wont see any chinees language. you cant be anywhere but where you programed the wi-fi. so if you buy it now you can see ds or dsi on tv with people playing mario kart and say...hey i have that game!

VERY impressive. For one of the first ds games to release, it was put together very well. The graphics were stunning, there was a huge selection of characters, and for each character there were three different carts.

One cool feature is that you can design your own racing logo and put it on the cart(s) of your choice. The designing process is easy and precise. It comes out very well.

There are many race courses. Some old, some new. It's neat to see some older courses from the 64 and other systems. But the new courses are very exciting.

The sound track isn't amazing, but it fits good ol' Mario, so nobody minds.

Oh, I almost forgot. The multiplayer mode! It's awesome. You get multiple specially designed courses for battle mode. And you can also do regular races. It's so much fun to play with your friends.

All and all, this game is excellent and never gets old. Definitely worth renting.
