FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What are the 1st things that come in mind when you think of Mario Kart? Krarts? Mario? Sharp Graphics!?!?!?! Welcome to Mario Kart: DS! Yes it's a DS game and believe it or not, it does have graphics that go up there with certain Psp games! In this game you get to play 32 of your favorite Mario Kart tracks over the last few years and a few new ones. You can win unlockable characters and believe it or not, (belive it) you actually get a sense of speed in this game! Not like Wipeout Pur or anything but you do ,really, get a sense of speed. As the cherry on top Nintendo also made this game compatable with their new Wi-Fi Online Play. Now you can hit some dude 1857 kilometers away from you with a red shell! I know, AWESOME! The one thing I don't like about this game is that the controls can get a bit annoying. After positioning my thumb in a awkward postition you drive in a grand prix in order to use items I had to take a break. My thumb started to hurt. Never happened to me ever before! Besides the fact the touch screen has little capability (wow! i can draw a symbol on the hood of my kart that no one can see!) this is an above average game. Nothing revolutionary, just a superb game. This is a definite buy for Mario Kart and racing fans alike!
