Tom has a provocative opinion.
You're talking s*** :) (But seriously, mario kart is better)
As Tom said when he pitched the concept to me: "Bring on the hate mail."
I actually think it works like this. Diddy Kong Racing = better single player Mario Kart = better multiplayer
ummm no comparison to now Diddy Kong racing is still better, it took skill. No cheap items, no rewarding the sucky players and punishing the good. It had the right balance I sincerely hope they make another.
Diddy Kong Racing was clearly a better game and as much as I'm enjoying Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed (bloody long name..) it has no hub world so it's not as good either (although again still great), Banjo and Kazooie Nuts and Bolts (another stupidly long name..) now that had an amazing hub world and excellent well everything!
I thought MK64 was the better game
Strangely I enjoyed Diddy Kong Racing more, but i think that was because it was easier to play... And being only young at the time, that makes sense. But It is probably my favourite N64 game based purely on the fact that I enjoyed it most, at the age I was.
I was no kid when it came out and I assure you DKR was the better game.
*daydreams of MK64*
i agreed :)
Mario kart 64>Diddy kong racing Crash team racing>both You all know its the truth.
Crash was really good! That can be a follow up piece one day. "Crash Drinks Your Milkshake at Kart Games"
I do remember Diddy Kong having better mechanics, but Crash Racing had the best imo (c'mon, dual analog racing was mind-blowing and glorious).
i loved Diddy Kong for the variety of engines it was possible to choose between. My fav MK of all time is Double Dash.
Double Dash is the last MK I played. I was kind of over it by that point, although I did enjoy the wheel.
Always preferred Diddy Kong racing
Diddy Kong was a GREAT game- I have no problem with anyone that has this opinion. I used to play both of them, back to back.
Who cares? Damn, today is a slow day for news on n4g-_-. Not a single article today that isn't an opinion piece.
Ah, my favorite type of commenter: He who laments "Who cares?" amid a sea of those who do, and believes himself to be the only person in the universe. #FeedingTheTroll In all seriousness, though, surprised to see so little Wii U coverage on the front page. Perhaps later today!
This guy is actually right, Diddy Kong had a better balance of weapons, the tracks were 10x better than MK64. I mean Mario Kart is doing stuff now in 7 that Diddy Kong did a back on 64. What killed it for my friends and why they prefered Mario Kart was the over bearing cuteness of the characters. Yea I know it's a stupid reason, but that was the only reason why my friends didn't want to play Diddy Kong. Which is ashame, and I'm ashamed for them.
Diddy Kong Racing Theme tune is so good. Played this game to death on N64 back in the day. Used to love that PvP games in that Ice place with the multi tiered track
I love most about most games is the music. Mario Kart 64 had a great soundtrack which I really only like the main theme of Diddy Kong Racing. Both games are great fun to play as well.
I'm not exactly gonna pick up either game, uhhh...ever again, so..... Seriously, this might have interested me 15 years ago. Now I'm sure both games could be found and played for nothing, so it's a moot point. Get both and race away.
Ahh yes, not interested in retro games so you visit a site that exclusively features retro games. Seems like a sound strategy.
This story was posted in N4G, never visited the site in my life. Assumption = fail.
Id rather wacky races on dreamcast.
That's alot of what rare did back in the day. Under Nintendo they created high quality reimaginings of nintendo staples. Diddy racing is basically Mario Kart. Banjo n kazooii is basically a reimagined, and dare i say better, mario 64. Star Fox Adventures was the only 1 that turned out worse than what it emulated, its got nothing on zelda. they had some original stuff like jet force and conkers, but most of the 64-early cube games were a way for Nintendo to make sequels- back when they insisted on never doing that.
