    Melts in your DS, not in your hands.

    I was just thinking "this might not be too bad" till I saw the DSI logo.

    Well, it's made by DSI, if that tells you anything. And yes, I tried it...and yes, it's fucking god-awful! [​IMG]

    This has to suck just on principle.

    "No, Dude! I'm going to be the green one!"

    Few More GBAtemp Exclusive Screenshots


    Played it on meh R4...ain't the worst. Shovelware, definitely, but not the worst you can get though.
    Level design is really pitiful, it's racing is easy, and those Snakers on Wi-Fi really piss me off! [​IMG]

    Game should be out for the Wii soon too, i'd like to see what it's like.
    Only 8 days untill Mario Kart Wii, so i'd say they are much too late for M&M Kart Racing!

    Not bad relative to most DSI games, but still looks like a PS1 game.

    I think the real question here is why are M&M's driving on some random tracks attacking each other for no reason. Also DSI is that cheap that they used black text you can barely see on the main menu.

    Gambia, The
    Technically this game is really really good. It has a lot of nice effects, like driving over a grid surface and chocolate seas. Looks awesome. Also the track design is complex and varried. I also really like the music, especially the chip like in game music.
    Game is made by FRONTLINE, and not by DSI. Stop saying bullshit. DSI is just the publisher. [​IMG]
    FRONTLINE are ex amiga demoscene members, that means it`s natural, that it is technically far better than most DS games.

    First of all, you don't need to accuse me of anything (which I'm guessing your "bullshit" remark is directed at me). And second, talk about "saying bullshit"?! No, "technically," this game sucks horribly. The camera is all over the place, the track design is not only hard to make out because of the camera, but the design itself, too, is horrible. Spiders that do almost nothing littered throughout the track in an attempt to make it look more interesting? And "looks awesome"? Compared to what? Homie Rollerz? Perhaps. Compared to mediocrity on the DS? It's shit.
