Rated 10 out of 10 by KH_Lover Diddy Kong Racing DS Review
I loved this game on the Nintendo 64 and I love it on the Nintendo DS. It’s really hard for me to decide which version is better. Anyway, the Nintendo DS version of Diddy Kong Racing is a very fun game because of all the good features in it. You get to use the stylus to get hidden balloons, play balloon-popping challenges, and even make your own racetracks. It’s a challenging game, which makes it even more fun. My favorite vehicle in the game is the plane. I like going up and down and through tunnels and stuff. I love racing the main boss in the second race against him. In my opinion, that’s the best part in the whole game. The DS version also has characters that weren’t in the N64 version. Sadly, though, you can only play as Conker or Banjo in the N64 game. They aren’t in the DS one. However, overall, It’s a very good game. Trust me. It’s worth the money you spend on it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sammi GREAT!
When i was small this was probably my first game (besides super mario) for the Nintendo 64 and I loved it! I used to play it who knows how many times in one day! Me and my brother whould have tournaments and play with family and friends when they came over and it was just everybody's favorite monkey! With a great racing edge! Than when we first got our Ds a few years ago we found that it was now made for it! My brother got it right away and we plaed it non stop but it wasn't an easy beat either! I don't even know if we beat it yet! It was almost the same as 64 only portable, better graphics, and still made! One day when I went out I took it and could not stop playing it I got re addicted! it is a great game and worth every penny! Trust me spend your money on this hit!

Pros: they make use of the ds touch screen
Cons: they should add a difficultly setting
I would buy this game
Oh the nostalgia is so over whelming. Diddy Kong Racing basically got an upgrade with some changes being good while others being bad. One change that really stood out is that the game was made much easier. In any case it makes the game a little less challenging. They could have easily added a difficultly setting like easy, medium, and hard to fix that. Because of this I actually prefer playing the old one despite all the nice and new touch features added in.
Rated 8 out of 10 by athletes21 Nostalgic, but Repetitive
This game is a great game for DS, as it brings back the memories of Diddy Kong Racing for Nintendo 64 and adds new twists. The race courses are unique and the characters are great. However, it sometimes gets to easy as there are not multiple difficulties. Although this is a good game, it can get repetitive. This is a good game for a player looking for a game to get addicted for a month, but not for someone who wants to play for a year. I would suggest this game though.

It is alot like mario kart, if you like mario kart you will love diddy kong racing. there is so much you can do in this game like building your own course, battleing bosses, customizing and upgrading your vechicles, and racing with your friends, its an overall great game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by 646464 Nintendo/Rare brilliance
Diddy Kong Racing DS is a solid racing game, rivaling Mario Kart. Not only can you race in karts, but you can race in hovercrafts and planes as well. The game also takes full advantage of the touch screen/mic. There are loads of unlockables to keep you busy. The music is simply phenomenal. Definitely a must buy for any DS owner. Nintendo and Rare are the dream team.
Rated 10 out of 10 by NBAballer27 this game is amazing!!!
I really liked this game and I don't think it's that much of a rip off of mario kart. I got this game 2 weeks Ago and personally this game to me is terrific. Anybody that likes mario kart should get this game

Rated 6 out of 10 by DKandDK hovercars and planes impossible to control.
The hovercars and planes would have been a cool addition if they were possible to control.The game itself was too hard at times. Every once in a while the computers would be behind you and then suddenly they would be in front of me by a long shot.The graphics were excellent and the lasting appeal was terrble.
Rated 8 out of 10 by ChargerFan17 Good Game
Diddy Kong racing is a good but very challenging racing game. I had to trade it in because on one of the levels it reguuired the mic and my mic wasnt working properly. But up to there it was a very good gane that i would have love to finsh.So... This game is worth buying.
