"Mini Desktop Racing is another shovelware title that simply needs to be ignored at all costs. It's better than its partner in crime, Offroad Extreme, but only by a hair, as the racer's controls are still extremely uncomfortable, pretty unresponsive, and completely lackluster. Mini-games in Wario Ware, Wii Play, or EA's Wii Playground run circles around this game, and offer a ton of other modes on top of basic slot car racing. Mini's visuals are a joke, and if this game was available on Wii Ware rather than on physical media we'd still recommend it for absolutely nobody, as it's nothing short of insulting. The back of Mini's box labels this game as "A perfect combination of miniature Mini mayhem and madcap multiplayer madness." We'd say that alone doesn't do the game justice though, as it also "Musters magnificent malignant migraines and manages to make marvelous must-play moto-racing for masochists with moronic monetary management." The fact that Nintendo even puts its official seal on this game is nothing short of laughable."
