Mario Kart DS is the absolute best Mario Kart game out right now, surpassing even Double Dash. Screenshots don't begin to do the graphics justice. The game runs very smoothly. Increases in difficulty are definitely noticable as you go up in the Grand Prix mode, though it never really gets ridiculous. The game gives you no reason to shout out "that's so not fair!" when an opponent does something. I love how the developers' times stay in the game once you unlock them. My only problem with the game was the music. Though I gradually became accustomed to it, I don't consider any of it to be up to par with the music featured in the previous MK titles.
All in all, if you loved any of the other Mario Kart games or you own a DS, GET THIS GAME. NOW.
