Best Kart game ever. That Wiz Pig was hard to beat.

I don't think I ever beat him. D:

Hmmm...I'll have to dig out my old cartridge and see if I can do it now that I'm older.

This is the game Mario Kart 7 ripped off years later and fans called it "innovation".

Personally, DKR and CTR were more fun when MK stopped being fun for me.

You had to beat him like 2-3 different times I believe.

That game was so much more than I thought it was initially going to be. I thought it would just be a Mario Kart clone.

i beat the game :D imo one of the best games ever lol, sound track was awesome

I really wish Mario Kart would rip that game off. Since there is no way for a sequel, Mario Kart should have planes and boats, and not that underwater racing and air sliding.

At least Mario Kart 8 is going to be a little bit different with the anti gravity mechanic, but it would be awesome to have a reincarnation of Diddy Kong Racing.. The game as really much better than Mario Kart 64.

DKR or CTR passed Mario Kart a long time ago.

Nice piece! I also got this around the holidays and any mention of it brings me back to Christmas 1997. Cheers!

I definitely thought about this game the past few days. I think that game was sick of me playing it since it was the only N64 game I had for 3 months. Classic and enjoyable none the less!
