Very enjoyable, and in a similar style to Mario Kart!alphalegion | April 12, 2013 | See all alphalegion's reviews »
I went into this game thinking I was going to hate it... The art style annoyed me and it looks like the game is designed with 5 year olds in mind. And yes, it’s not exactly a hardcore racing game, but it certainly shouldn’t be underestimated, especially for its nostalgia.
The bottom line is, this game is fun. Very fun. Just don’t go into the game expecting anything incredible and you’re going to have a lot of fun with it. It is best played with a controller, as you can clearly see it’s a console port, but that doesn’t detract from the fun.
Overall, this game is well worth getting! I wouldn’t really recommend it at its full £25/$35 price tag, but for £15 or less, you can’t go wrong! Very enjoyable, and in a similar style to the modern Mario Kart games.
