This game has so much potenial, but the flaws make it virtually unplayable. There is no difficulty setting, and the computer players seem determined to beat you. You can have 1st place until the last lap, and then at the last moment you'll end up in 6th place. I've played Mario Cart, and other games like this and I had little trouble beating them, but I couldn't win a cup in this game for nothing. You drive so fast on the maps it's hard to see where you're going. The arrows showing you when a turn is coming up are hard to see. There is no minimap to help you figure out the track. You get stuck on EVERY LITTLE TINY THING! I constantly got stuck behind trees, in corners, ect. It's such a shame, because the characters are adorable, the sound effects are good, the cut scenes are cute, and the tracks themselves are really pretty. But the difficulty in racing takes all the fun out of it. Now my 6 year old had fun with it, because he didn't seem to notice he got last place every time.
