On my lunch break from work I headed to a local Gamespot and grabbed DK Barrel Blast.

I haven't read much about it, but am definitely looking forward to getting home tonight and playing it.

Anyone played it yet? If so, thoughts?

I haven't played it, and I don't plan to. Looks pretty bad to me.

The best thing to do is go to YouTube and search for a DK Barrel Blast Video Tour. There's one on there by Josh Thomas, from WiiFolder.com, and he gives great insights and information on Wii titles.

A friend picked up the game based on the video and its actually really fun. If I hadn't already got Dewy's Adventure, I would have got DKBB. There's only 16 racers, courses and items.. but there's plenty of challenges, gameplay is actually fun and there's just a lot to do. Multiplayer is a blast, too.. cuz you're going crazy doing weird Wiimote motions alongside a friend and we couldn't help but crack up.

Visuals are Cube quality, of course.. as this is what Donkey Kong Racing, a cancelled Cube title, was going to be, but one thing about Nintendo games.. no matter the console, they have polish and this game looks and plays pretty good. Its nothing like Mario Kart, but like I said.. its still pretty damn good, in my opinion.

Of course, it doesn't play in HD or have online, (oh and its not on the XBOX360 lol jk jk..) so expect many, along with GameSpot, to see it as a mediocre title, at best.

I only had the chance to play it for a half hour last night, but I found it to be pretty simple to grasp and fun to play once you got into it. Thus far I think it's a fun little game, and I enjoyed playing it.

Also, to the last poster, I agree with you about why some people will call it a mediocre title.

I wanted this game when it was originally announced for the Gamecube cause it was going to use the Gamecube bongos instead of a controller... (I wish I had more uses for my gamecube bongos) but now Im really not that interested.

The reviews have been pretty bad, so I probably won't bother with it. It's rather disappointing, because it could have been a great game.

it looks like an ok game but not even comparable to mario kart. if you really desperate for a racer and have beaten or are bored of excite truck you should get it.
