The Best Mario Kart Ever!

I?m just going to just go ahead and say it, this is my favorite, and in my opinion, the best Mario Kart game ever made. It is also in my top five favorite DS games. Why you say? Do you have to even ask? I really can?t even find a problem with this game. First of all it has all the tracks you could ever want, including the best tracks from all of the previous Mario Karts including, Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, and Mario Kart Double Dash. Not only that but it takes the online element that failed on the Gamecube and blows it up on the DS, it works well and connects fast leaving a lasting reminder of an awesome online Mario experience. On top of that the graphics are amazing, and yes, I know some of you would argue that around the edges it?s a little jagged but lets remember that it?s running on a DS which is supposed to be comparable in graphical power to a Nintendo 64, except one thing, it looks at least three times better than the Mario Kart 64 did. As if that?s not enough Mario Kart DS adds even more characters and karts to choose from, including some surprising retro ones that I won?t spoil for the few who haven?t played this. Oh and I almost forgot! Because it?s on a DS you don?t have to have the ugly map in your way anymore, Nintendo has simply moved it to the touch screen so that you can conveniently look at it when you deem necessary without it getting in the way of your race. This game simply has to be the first thing that a DS owner buys for the system. It is undisputable one of the best games on the DS to date.
