My family always goes out with two other familys, altogether including a 13-year-old, a 11-year-old, two 8-year-olds, and a 5-year old. We were all searching for a brilliant multiplayer game that we could all play wihtout getting bored. When I bought this game, we immediatly went onto multiplayer against each other. Despite the eight year age range, everyone was laughing at the end of the first race. This is a brilliant, addictive game that any age can play. We never get bored with all the… Read Full Review

Another great title from Nintendo. This racing game features Mario and pals embarking on races in their own specialised vehicles. Unlock new characters, courses and cars, perfect shortcuts and even showcase your talents to friends via WiFi.
The nice 3D graphics work well on the sweet little courses, some of which have been specially designed for the DS version of the game.
There are also mini challenges and alternative driving games such as 'Balloon Battle' for when straight-up racing just… Read Full Review

Enjoy all of the thrills of the great game, now gone portable! The game incorporates old tracks and new tracks exclusively for the DS, including Yoshi falls. Some of the retro tracks include: Mario circuit 1 from the SNES, Moo Moo Farm from the N64 and Peach Circuit from the GBA to name but a few. There is the standard layout of single player and multiplayer (broadband internet connection needed for online play) which allows you to play against people around the world with the push of a button… Read Full Review

Overall, the best Mario Kart for it's time. The graphics are about as good as you can get for the DS. The feel is perfect for Mario Kart and being able to play it on a portable system is great!… Read Full Review

As the Mario Kart game for the Nintendo DS, Mario kart DS has a lot to live up to. And, fortunately, it was a great success. With online play and multi player support, Mario Kart DS has brought high-quality racing into your hands to travel anywhere and also race with anyone anywhere, as well.
Like previous Mario Kart games, Mario Kart DS has a single player racing mode, called the Grand Prix mode, where you race against 7 other computer controlled karts in hope to win the hold trophy after 4… Read Full Review

Mario Kart is a special something Nintendo tends to only release once on each console, so when there's talk of a new console, you know a Mario Kart is never far behind, and that proved true for the DS. Ever since Super Mario Kart on the SNES, the series have always provided one of the best multiplayer games on a Nintendo system, although each game in the series has a worthwhile single player they truly excel when it comes to multiplayer, and Mario Kart DS goes one further by being the first… Read Full Review

I think that Mario Kart DS is a great game. It is multi-player, so you can race against your friends, or play single. In MarioKart, you can do grand prix's and get graded on how well you did (A,B,C etc.). I think this is great as it allows you to test your skill and knowledge on driving. You can choose 50cc, 100cc or 150cc. These act as difficulty ratings. You race against characters. As you play the game, you unlock different racing courses and characters. There is also a mission option, in… Read Full Review

The day Nintendo released Mario Kart on DS the world changed forever! You can play it wherever there's a wifi connection. How good is that? I'm fairly new to the DS, and I got one for Christmas. The first game I got was Mario Kart. The only words I can think of are Brilliant, genius and amazing. I truly have never had a game that I haven't got bored of until now. Unlike some racing games it's not a simple thing of once you have mastered it you can't lose; it's one of those games where you can't… Read Full Review

Congratulations Nintendo, on a masterpiece for the Nintendo DS. Although some desirable aspects are missing, primarily in controls, everything about the content of the Mario Kart Nintendo DS game surpassed expectations.
Character choice is slightly smaller than that of Mario Kart: Double Dash, but two new racers make their debuts on the portable racing title. Many classic characters also appear, so anyone could find a suitable match.
At first glance, all of the old Grand Prix cups are… Read Full Review

Overall, Mario Kart DS is a pretty good game, and to start with it is extremely addictive, but as soon as you have unlocked all the game modes, all the characters, and perfected your logo it feels a little pointless to play on your own, but as soon as you get a real live opponent the competitive spirit between you will bring the thrill back into Mario Kart DS… Read Full Review

Mario Kart for the Nintendo DS may finish the beating of the PSP. Not only has the DS sold three times as many units as the PSP, one of Nintendo's best series has finally hit the DS, and it is online! The graphics of Mario Kart DS are fairly good. Probably better looking than the Mario Kart 64. There are more colors and more definition in the models.
The handling in this game is like no other Mario Kart. Nintendo made the powersliding (in which you get a slight boost of speed after holding… Read Full Review

Mario Kart DS is the game that I have been waiting for and I finally got my hands on it at a local game store - from the looks of it I wont be disappointed when it does get released.
Making use of the Nintendo DS' duel screens a top down detailed map is shown on the bottom screen and the detailed 3d action is shown on the top screen. The great gameplay that we all know and love is still there and this edition features tracks from all of the previous versions of the game as well as some… Read Full Review
