Mario Kart Vs Diddy Kong Racing

TGC writes: Now there are some of you out there who are probably thinking, why on earth am I comparing these two games when Mario Kart has been so much more successful than Diddy Kong Racing? Having been released on every Nintendo console since the SNES, it has a pretty decent head start, I must agree.

However the bitter sad truth of it all, in my opinion, is that Diddy Kong Racing on the N64 was a far greater game. (3DS, Diddy Kong Racing, GameCube, Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, Nintendo DS, Retro, Wii)

Really wish they would remake this game in HD for xbla. I would absolutely effing love to play the Fire Mountain battle egg hunt on live with friends.

So simple and so fun = )

I always preferred Diddy Kong and Crash Team Racing to Mario Kart games.

I'm going to take this time to ask...Why is it that 90% of the Nintendo sports, party, racer, and mash up titles are only Donkey Kong or Mario Bros related? I think we should get to see Metroid, Zelda, and other Nintty characters in a racer or sports game too. Outside of Smash, it's never everyone.

On topic. Mario Kart for DS is my fav racer of the series, but I loved both Mario Kart and Diddy Kong on 64.

The song for Hot Top Volcano haunts me to this day. Man the graphics on DKR were very advanced for its time. Love, love, love Mario Kart 64 (all of them) but why didn't the guys who worked on Mario Kart Wii throw in a couple of tracks from Mario Kart arcade? It seems like it would have been the icing on a most yummy cake! I'd love to spot a Mario Kart arcade machine.

The adventure mode was awesome, much better then a standard Grand Prix. The world was an absolute joy to play too, especially in planes. Mario Kart was easily the better multiplayer game though, can't beat using a lightning bolt on Wario stadium on THAT jump.

Diddy Kong Racing >>>>>> Mario Kart64.

I lovelovelove hub world style adventure games and DDR was the first and last (?) to ever put that in a racing game and that's the main reason for me why it wiped the floor with MK64, also the hovercrafts were soooo fun to use.

Mario Kart U should use Peach's Castle as a Hub for the game world like Diddy Kong had the small little island.
