Europe PAL Version

Quick off the grid.

For all Nintendo’s innovation in creating its DSiWare download service, it can’t be helped noticing that the Big N’s contribution to the line-up is pretty lacklustre – its calculators and clocks are derided, and for every Art Style there’s a...

iPhone game got very decent revws. Hopefully the DSi game is at least as good. Insta-download for me even though I'm not into "serious" racers.

The DSi is really better than the regular DS now for most of the players! It was the best for everyone beffore the major software releases, but now... it is... awesome! I mean come on', all DSi Ware Games easily crush the GBA compatibility!
On DSi Ware now we have: Asphalt 4: Elite Racing, Mighty Flip Champs, Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Real Football 2009, every art - style games, a few minigames like Pyoro and PaperPlane along with the Master of illusion titles, POP Star Superstar Road to Celebrity... I mean come on', who can denie' that???



Gogata said:

The DSi Version is better than the iPhone one, because you can use the directional buttons for steering and any other buttons for accelaration or breaking.



Gogata said:

If someone has this game, can you please tell me if the image quality is good?(compared to the one in the video to the original one)

aoeder said:

I can't wait til' this is released in the US! This will be an instant download for me!

I was wondering...
I have Mario Kart DS (Great game by the way) I have also read the review and I still do not know if I should waste my 800 Nintendo Points...

Can anybody help?



Kit said:

Oh yes, it is definitely worth it. It is very slick, there's lots of choice of cars (and bikes) to race and they are all fully customisable. What else, it's multiplayer - I'm looking forward to finding a friend with a DSi. Its a bit more grown-up than Mario Kart, and more like playing Need4Speed/GTA. What more can I say other than "Get it now" (you know you want to). It's an essential DSiware downloadable in my opinion! Trust me, if you like racing sims then you won't put it down.

I bought the original asphault for ds and loved it... I just bought this, while it's 3 times cheaper, it seems to use the same or similar engine and with all the shouting and crazy drifting seems like a ridge racer ripoff. Also seems like theres a massive boomerang effect. BARELY got third and i was going full boost speed the entire last lap. I'll give it some time though I'm sure it'll be worth the 8.60ish dollars.




wow....... that is soo cool i dont rlly have a dsi but when i do i will get it for sure!!i rlly want dsi with the flipnote and pics. best console of year
