    The gameplay is pretty fun, just like the original. The course themes, while generic, are exciting and fun. But, the load times are ridiculous. You'll spend just under 30 seconds starring at the loading screen every time you play. That's just unacceptable and seriously drags down on the fun. They could have at least halved that time by making the disc dvd format, but instead The gameplay is pretty fun, just like the original. The course themes, while generic, are exciting and fun.

  1. There is so much to do, so much to unlock. You'll have fun with the two-player mode, but the heart of the game is really the single-player experience. It's addictive from the start, and the fantasy courses are so good that you'll want to race them again and again.
  2. Has the technical style of their earlier racing games to make for a fun, well played racing experience, and it has the necessary personality to make it more interesting than other typical racers.
  3. A great single-player game with truly unforgettable courses, but the plain multiplayer levels, ho-hum graphics and bad sound keep this game from making my must-have list.
