It's still good. Just the worst in the series in my opinion. It felt way too gimmicky and "Hey look guys, physics! Let's make the item blocks roll around everywhere instead of being stationary!" Then again SS is my favorite and I hate the coin mechanic.

Well, you had great music. You had great graphics. The handling was just fine (unless you played as the alligator), and it was very fun and fast paced compared to the slow motion MK64. The courses were very fun and pretty, with loops, clever shortcuts and great balance between any vehicle you chose. The items and weapons were great, and the way you could upgrade them made it a lot deeper than MK64. The battle mode was very fun and was more complex than what you could find on MK64, and they were more varied. There were a lot of extra features you could get with cheat codes, that went on to become popular during the PS2/GCN/Xbox era (Rogue Squadron, LEGO games). Plenty to love about the game.

Also, I didn't think much of Double Dash, but it was at least playable and fun. Also, it came with DK Mountain.

Me trying to tell you why DKR was a good racing game would be like you trying to tell me why Star Fox 64 is a great game. Both would be futile.

I liked Dash too, maybe that was my favorite. I've not played the Wii MK though.

I will admit that's one of my favorite tracks. I haven't played much of the Wii version so does it have more tracks like DK Mountain? I love how you're descending volcano and then just blast your way back up with a cannon. It's still bad ass to this day.

One of my favourite racers, I actually liked it a lot more than MK:Wii (which just felt more of the same to me). Only thing that killed it was the loading times and all that Sonic Says bullshit. Great OST and visuals though.

Double Dash is probably my 3rd favorite Mario Kart, but even then I think I enjoyed the Crash Bandicoot alternative more, if only for the sheer ridiculousness of it.

Double Dash is my least favorite. I would put thems as...

1. Wii
2. DS
3. 64
4. SNES
5. Double Dash.
6. Mario Kart GBA.

Well, I guess second least, since I do dislike the GBA one more. And I will admit most likely the reason I like Wii the most is the Higher Racer Count

Where'd you hear this? And they did release Metal Sonic as DLC.

What about the Wii version? Hope none of this is from Chartz, as they've been known to be unreliable, and it's a strictly banned site, sourcing sales talk from them is a big no-no.

It was a figure I read here I think, but didn't sega confirm there was numerous DLC and in the end all we got was 1 set and that's it?

Usually that's a bad sign.

I love this game so much. I even platinumed it on PS3 and fairly play it online. It's so much fun. Hopefully this arcade release gives the game a much needed exposure because it deserves it. I still want a sequel since they stopped releasing DLC. :(

This game has huge potential. Don't ruin it developers!

I'd kill for a sequel, but I'm afraid that the first game might have underperformed so much, that Sega/Sumo won't want to chance it.

If they had marketed the game better, it probably would have performed quite well. It is the 360/PS3/PC's answer to Mario Kart, and it's a damn good one at that (it's a lot better than Mario Kart Wii).

Don't buy it for that price. Thing was less than that on launch day, I got mine for 10. Pick up a boxed copy.

Game is super sweet on PC. Has some stuttering issues during the menus on ATI cards, but that's it. You can get 60fps on the humblest of rigs during the gameplay. Turn off the dynamic lighting and you get prebaked shadows that look better and keep performance smooth.

Lack of online isn't so much of an issue because these games play better locally with your mates shoved up on the couch next to you.

Pretty much the same. It's not as pretty as the HD/PC versions (the biggest graphical difference is literally the shaders, which in this game means more colors), but it has a better framerate than the 360 version and has the Mii, which the PS3 version doesn't have (HD versions do have that one DLC track and character though).

From what the HD people have been telling me, it seems no one plays online in any version.

They are all pretty identical though, even the DS version is very similar (with a few small changes in the tracks for the lower polygon count).

Just pick any one you want.

I really like the console versions of this game. I'd probably be really interested if I saw this arcade version at first, but then I would turn away as soon as I see the $2 price for a credit. I dunno, this might be only $1 per credit, but even then that's too high to me. When arcade games got into prices like that, that's what I personally think killed arcade gaming.

There was a lot of talk about DLC prior to launch that went really quiet after launch. We did get one racer and one track, but this really wasn't on the same level as what they were hinting at.

They also made an attempt to fix a major glitch with the leaderboards and a few other issues, but some aspects in the interface perform noticeably worse since the update, there's still tricks to get impossible times on the leaderboards, and they didn't fix an issue with the way certain flying characters can keep major steering control while drifting by using the d-pad in addition to the analog stick, meaning they can charge boosts almost anywhere on the maps.

It's a great game, don't get me wrong, one of the best kart racers out there. But I assume because of the sales, SUMO wasn't really able to stick with it, we were probably lucky to get the patch and batch of DLC we got.

It sold over a million in total, so I'm not sure that qualifies as 'tanking'.
All the planned DLC was released, there was an unlock code & the pre-order forklift as well as Metal Sonic. There's no secret stash of unused content apart from XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
