5.0 out of 5 stars Good fun for kids and adults (one on one and together) November 16, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Our family loves Diddy Kong racing! We come back to it over and over 'cause the adults love it as much as the kids. We race each other and it is loads of fun. The graphics are neat and you can pick from a variety of racers (Pipsy is almost like a family member now!) Each racer has a particular skill(s) and/or a few weaknesses and it's fun to see who picks which racer. There are two ways to can just do races or you can do the adventure (also a race). Recommend it for those nights when you want to relax with the kids and have a laugh out loud blast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great one player action May 15, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My first thought with this game was that it would be a clonefrom 'Mario Cart' but after couple of weeks of playing it I realizedit was much more. I found challenging game with detailed race tracks in a beautiful 3D environment, with smooth racing gameplay that is second only to 'Mario Cart'. With excellent frame rates it doesn't look dodge like other N64 racing games. The only bad thing is if you are looking for two player action look else where because it doesn't offer much. Other than that it is a great game...a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cross-Genre Racing Adventure? Oh yeah. November 28, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
DKR (Diddy Kong Racing) is the only game I am aware of that is an adventure as well as a great racing game. The line drawn between racing and an adventure plot is just where it should be. When you first see the cutesy characters and tracks, you'll think it's easy. IT'S NOT. Sure, Adventure 1 may only take you 'bout a month (if you play constantly), but when you get to Adventure 2, it's a lot tougher. Then try Tracks Mode with the code "TIMETOLOSE". Then get T.T.. How about the Multiplayer games? And what about doing all this with Krunch? You'll see what I mean. Plus, in Adventure, you get to explore the outerworld, where you can access the races. Throw in DKR's plot and the Gold & Silver Balloons? There's gameplay. Maybe the toughest part is the Silver Coin Challenge in Adventure 2. If you thought the game was going easy on you, do this with Krunch, then use him to get T.T.. But when you get T.T., DON'T use him in Adventure. If you do all that, then I think you should have your hands full for AT LEAST four months (more if you play Multiplayer).

5.0 out of 5 stars cutesy, but a lot of fun April 10, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a HUGE fan of the MarioKart games and this one surpasses MarioKart 64 bigtime. Sure, it might be cutesy and some of the character's voices will get on your nerves, but the fun factor and replay value is out of this world! It is a lot better than MarioKart 64 in almost every way. The graphics are superb, the one player game is AWESOME and even after you beat the game, it's fun to go through it again. There are also 2 extra hidden characters to get to keep you racing. And most of all, the battle mode is different, but it is also great. In 2 of them, you compete against the computers or your friends to get so many eggs or bananas back to your base before they do. And best of all, in the other 2 it's just good old fashioned BATTLE! The 2 battle areas are a water level and an ice level, and they are fun.
If you ask me, I'd recommend getting Diddy Kong Racing before you get Mariokart 64 because it has more replay value than Mariokart ever thought of having.

5.0 out of 5 stars If it's a kiddy game, it's a very hard one July 7, 2006
By Simon
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Diddy Kong Racing will forever be looked at as a kiddy title, and in some ways Rareware did go overboard on this one. The character designs are very sugary sweet, accompanied by high-pitched voices that you want to slap in the face (Pipsy, I'm looking at you). Bright, cheerful colors, bright cheerful soundtrack. Yeah, kids love this stuff.

But strip all that away, and this is a very well-designed and challenging cart racer. It kind of does the opposite of Mario Kart 64, and offers a strong single-player mode and a fun but somewhat bare multiplayer-mode. Similiar to platform games, you race through courses and collect balloons, which in turn open boss fights and other worlds with more courses. There are three fully-tuned vehicles to choose from: your kart, a plane, and a hovercraft. Each has it's pros and cons, controls differently from the others, and takes skill to master. You can even race different vehicles against each other, often taking different routes in the same course. Like other kart racers this one isn't about speed, but the tracks have lots of detail and animation, and are consistently interesting to race through (one even looks like the Death Star trench from Star Wars).

Where the game starts to frustrate is Rareware's typical way of extending play time. Beat the courses once, then race through them again and collect 8 hard-to-reach coins while still maintaing first place. This leads to a harder boss encounter, and must be done to unlock the final levels and the best ending. Little kids will probably throw the controller down right here, but anyone who's worth anything in video games will find it immensely satisfying to clear Rare's requirements and unlock all that the game has to offer. Seperates the men from the boys, and all that.
