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.
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.
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.
With simple controls and familiar characters, Cartoon Network Racing provides the juvenile set with a racing experience that is easily accessible and entertaining, featuring a host of rewards that make the overall game session that much more worthwhile.
