Diddy Kong Racing

Get the game at!

Reviewed by John Fleury When the hit Donkey Kong Country came out, people ADORED the monkey Diddy. Nintendo was aware of that, so they made Donkey Kong Country 2, with Diddy as the star. It became even more popular than the original. Now, in Diddy's first game for the N64, Nintendo shows a little monkey can go a long way.

Graphics 9 out of 10

The graphics in this are astounding, probably because Rare used a new animation method. Though the walls are still standard flat and blurry (Will they ever fix that?) everything else is wonderful. On the player select screen, the characters move to the rhythm of the bouncy music, and the bosses (Especially Wizpig, the final boss). When Wizpig teased me, I could actually see him wiggling in mock horror and breathing! Astounding!

Music and Sound 10 out of 10

What can I say? This is the best part of the game, when you pick the players, you hear them speak(Though I wish their mouths moved when they did), The music is cute but sweet, and...uh, hey, can I let ya in on a little secret? If you look in the credits, you can see that Cathrine Sutherland formerly on POWER RANGERS, plays one of the voices! Now, there's so much music You'll have to access the music test! Sorry, I'm keepin it a secret. Earn it yourself.

Game Challenge 10 out of 10

This is one of the toughest games I've ever played. The silver coins can sometimes be VERY tough, and the bosses...Ooh, I don't even want to talk about it! I've had this game for over a month and STILL haven't beaten it! Still, the challenge and fun kept me hooked.

Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

This is fun, because you can explore when you're not racing, do the time trials, I mean you can probably play this forever! (I still am eagerly looking for hidden characters.)


This game gave me some serious frustration. Sometimes I'd turn off the N64 and storm out of the room. When you crash, you're in big trouble. The computer NEVER crashes into walls! But once again, the challenge and fun kept me hooked, so I'd always come back for more.

Replayability 10 out of 10

You just keep coming back to this game! Once you're hooked, you'll probably be hooked forever! AWESOME!

Game Value 9 out of 10

Luckily, I got it for Christmas, but if I wanted to shell out $60, I'd do it. This game pays for all that and more.

Overall 9.4 out of 10
