This has everything you could expect from a Mario Kart game. It has everything that has made this franchise so consisently fun and enjoyable. From the single-player grand prix mode, to battling friends over the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, this game brings all the fun of Mario Kart to the DS.
The visuals are every bit as gorgeous, if not more so, than the N64 game and just shy of Double Dash for the GameCube. The controls work well, though the lack of an analog stick on the DS is a noticeable drawback from the newer Mario Kart games I've gotten used to. Still, the d-pad works smoothly enough once you get readjusted to it.
If you are looking for a fun kart racer that doesn't take itself too serious, but still achieves excellence...Mario Kart is the game you're looking for. Easily one of the best games on the DS, by far the best and most fun racing game on the system.
