  1. The gameplay is identical to Mario Kart for the DS but it still doesn’t have as much polish as the original has.
  2. 65
    This is a fun addition to a young gamers DS library, and the Wi-Fi multiplayer should keep the older gamer content.
  3. Unlike most arcade-style racers, your opponents make use of EVERYTHING, just like you can and should.
  4. The younger crowd may find Cartoon Network Racing to be an enjoyable racer featuring familiar and likable characters, but anyone else likely won't be as enamored.
  5. Cartoon Network Racing does a lot of things really well, just not the gameplay. It’s packed with extras, decent graphics and the personality of all the CN shows, but it doesn’t play as smoothly or comfortably as Mario Kart DS.
  6. Those who spend countless hours in front of the TV, monitoring the daily misadventures of Dexter and the Powerpuff Girls will certainly find something to appreciate in this game, but for everyone else, it’s probably best to stick with Mario and friends.
  7. 58
    It frustrates with its difficult track designs and use of shortcuts, and the array of available racers seems drawn from the talent pool of 2001.
  8. Cartoon Network Racing, like many other kart racers, is stuck in the land of mediocrity. It doesn’t have enough to make it as good as Mario Kart, but yet it is a better gaming experience than some other imitators.
