Yes I have played the game and I liked it, but it was very familiar. That is just my opinion, if you think it is highly original that is yours, I really don't care either way. Like I said, I enjoyed the game but didn't find it to be all that original.
Just like Ridge Racer. Every Ridge Racer game plays exactly the same. Yet it's possible for a Ridge Racer game to be the best in the series, isn't it?
Actually 6 should really be counted as a new off shoot for the series in terms of playstyle. While it had the dynamics of the Type 4 breed the triple nitrous completely changed the way a race is played and the tactics used.
[QUOTE=Adamant]I never claimed Mario Kart DS was a highly original game. It's Mario Kart, we know what we're getting. The point is that the stages are more fun.[/QUOTE]
Not trying to change the subject here, but has anyone seen that crazy Japanese commerical for Mario Kart DS? It's short but hilarious!
