Mario Kart is a great series and has visited the handheld befoe and has done good but not this good. The gameplay is great and has many tracks plus more racers. The tracks look just just like they would on the systems that the tracks were orginally on. The extra tracks look great as well. The graphics are amazing and I don't believe I have seen to many games on the DS that are like this. Just amazing. The sound is traditional to the mario Kart series which is great becuase of a beat to keep people playing. This game is a game that any DS owner should have in their collection. If you don't you don't have a complete collection.
