    Easy to play and great for young and old alike.

    So what if there are already 200 reviews for this game. There should be. It is absolutely one of the most fun games for the DS out there. Sure it is practically the same as the Game Cube version, but you can't play th... Read Full Review

    MARIO KART is a great game, hours of fun, wi-fi, A+ in my book.

    This is a great game to add to the library of great Nintendo games. When DS first came out I didn't think much about it and traded it in for a PSP. Since then the fall line up of DS has rocked! I had to go out and buy a ... Read Full Review
