    I've compiled a list of my top 10 racing games for the DS. The video is a little old and becuase of this Sonic and Sega Racing isn't here, but here's the video:



    I've also done a review for Sonic and Sega: All Stars Racing. That's here:

    Grid is the #2 racer on metacritic for a reason its because it and mario kart are without doubt the best and only decent racers on the DS and the fact you actually found 10 racers worth putting into a list deserve a special mention haha but honestly if you want a racer on the DS get mario kart if you like the classic gameplay with weapons but if you want a solid realistic racer get Grid.

    dont buy any of the need for speed DS games because they all suck and asphalt is actually fun because its so broken but its not a bad game overall iv only played sonic and sega all star racing demo so maybe get that as an alternate to mario kart too

    Mariokart DS is just my favorite DS game of all time, it's just perfect IMHO.
    GRID and Trackmania are also worth mentioning, but the rest is fairly crap.

    I think both the top 10 video and the review video were excellent! If these are your first ones, you are doing great!

    I was glad to see Speed Racer high on your list, my youngest son and I really enjoy that one together.

    I'd love to see an online multiplayer Road Rash or an online multiplayer 1 Xtreme (I don't think this was the original name of this game) for the DS. I really enjoyed those old Genesis and Playstation games (respectively).

    I'll be looking forward to more of your video reviews!

    No Sideswiped? It beats practically every game on that list outside of maybe Mario Kart DS, but it could probably beat that too. It's the best hidden gem for the DS.

    Trackmania had too many glitches to be fun for me.
    Both Need for Speed games made me feel like I was driving a piece of soap.
    Asphalt 2 was indeed fairly good, and MKDS is great ofcourse.
    But where is Sideswiped? It's the only non-Mario racing game on the ds that was genuinely fun to play and kept me hooked for a long time!

    EDIT: dammit Guild you beat me to it.

    I kinda don't like ''realistic'' racing games sometimes,also,are they laggy?lol I guess I got spoiled by the crazy tracks like the ones on F-Zero or Crash Team Racing... Why won't they make Mario Kart:Double Dash on DS?That game is better than Mario Kart DS... I'm sure if they had it,that it could easily be the best DS racing game.Oooo!Why don't they make an F-Zero DS game? XD

    I think one reason Mario Kart DS is good is because it's like the original Mario Kart, so not everyone wants double dash on the ds.

    I am the oppisite, I like the "realistic" ones over "Kart-Racing" ones.

    The best are:
    Sideswiped
    Asphalt 1
    Mario Kart
    Diddy kong racing
    Trackmania
    Ridge Racer
    I don't like GRID myself,it's just awful how the opponent move if you touch them.
    I know Ridge Racer has this fucking clipping, but it's fun!
