Like Mario Kart, MySims Racing firmly has children in mind as its core audience, but by osmosis it will end up being embraced by adults too. It's the game you'd get if you mooshed Mario Kart and a basic RPG for the DS together, as you can wander around a town with a name of your choosing and meet all kinds of characters who want you to race them."
