    Spoken like someone who doesn't appreciate points. Back in my day, games didn't give you three points. Most didn't even give you a single point. Think about that next time you want to post a sarcastic comment about three points.

    I have absolutely no idea what the points are even for......fan club or something?

    But what about this game, any good? What is it, like Mario Kart with Ben 10 characters or what?

    Hopefully Kirby will be out tomorrow. I went out and bought Epic Yawn, so I will be demoing this one (I HATED Epic Yawn). When that happens, I’ll grab this game too. I like mascot kart racers, like Mario Kart, Sonic & Sega All Star Racing, and Crash Team Racing.

    This game is really sub-par, but it gets the job done for what it is. I'll just quote what somebody else who played the game found that they liked about it, and what really brought it down.

    Basically, it is out there for the name, not to be enjoyed.

    Ok, I have been playing it. I beat grand pix.
    • Items are random. When I was in 1st place I go the boost. Boost (Item) is broken. If you hold down the button, It is like having 10 golden mushrooms in Mario Kart terms
    • I question when this was made. Ben has ghost Freak in his watch, and Ghost Freak was extracted in Alien Force (a series before ultimate alien) So it is odd to see Ben has have him.
    • Ghost freak is also a cart racer too. Which is awesome!
    • The Items blow too. All of the items can’t be thrown, plus they are pretty much the same. There really only 3 items. Laser beams which do various thinks to whoever it hits, mainly turns them into stone/wood, ect to slow you down. Then there is goop you leave behind in long trails. Lastly, there is a shield.
    • The Tracks also blow and are confusing. There are only 3 places. Normal, Ice, and null void.
    • Each theme has about 3 to 4 races. It is the same course but with new ways to race. This can get confusing, because there are rarely any signs in the later levels, so you’ll be driving & crashing into sharp turns
    • The bantering between characters is pretty good.
    • Grind Prix is story mode the 1st time, then after you can play as whoever.
    • Heavy characters seem godly. I boosted 3 times & Vilgax passed me.
    • Each course has short cuts. These are pretty much needed to win in later races.
    • Items are not bountiful either which is annoying. It is like playing Sonic Riders 2 at times
    • You can hold up to two special items, via, transform twice or boost twice or one or the other.
    • There is no drifting like in Mario Kart
    • You can hold ‘A’ all the way though
    • Big Chill's Special shows him turning Invisible, but he still can be hit, which i thought was odd.
    • Down is to look back. It doesn’t seem bad until you play it with the 3ds’ analog
    • All you really need to press is Left or Right
    • You pretty much unlock everybody but 2 characters after you beat GP
    • Before you start the game, you select a difficulty, and you cannot change it. Hero mode is recommended, because normal is just too easy.
    • Some Specials are crippling. The lasers I mentioned cripple you. Diamond heads too, if you crash into them (diamond bars on the ground pop up and block you.)
    • You can restart races in GP.
    • No online wi-fi, local only
    • Driving off road seems to have no consequence
    • It feels like there should be more playable characters
    I agree with the final score quoted. It is a poor clone, and has some issue. Mainly, bland level design (only 3 course with the majority being alternate routs) & overpowering items which can make or break a race.
