For me this has bested MK in every way possible. Like most "N" games, MK really no longer offers anything new, it's just a new cash grab every few years. DS MK was the last title they made that seemed to have actual effort put in to. There are so many "N" staples, that other publishers have taken and improved on in recent years, it's not even funny. The one thing they have always had, was their great 1st party titles, now they no longer have that really, and most of their games have become average at best.Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing Transformed.
DKR is a perfect example of what I mentioned above. This was really MK taken to the next level, and I have still not seen "N" improve on what Rare did here. Both of these games are MK done better then MK.Which is the one with the apes? Oh yeah; Diddy Kong Racing. That's the best Mario Kart game! :lol:
Agreed, but "N" has gotten very lazy in recent years. Anything that is great in a game, and should be continued in future titles, just never happens with them. Why is it so hard for them to take what works, and get rid of what doesn't, is beyond me. They just completely rework great titles, and often times ruin them for the fanbase that was once there, and then the games now suck in general, so there is no new audience to be had either. It's almost like they have some dart board way of making decisions over there, as some of the choices are just so "broken".I think if they had continued the DS single player challenges into the 3DS version that would have made it a much more complete package!
There not better really. They all offer something new(gimmick), but the DS game is really where everything came together right in one place. The other games may look better, or offer better online, but the DS is the most robust overall package of the bunch.I haven't played the ones on Gamecube, Wii, Wii U or 3DS but I'd be kind of surprised if they weren't all better than MKDS.
