On its face, Dreamworks Super Star Kartz is nothing more than a kart racing game that meets all the requisite components of the genre. That is, there are several characters to choose from; the race tracks are vibrant, colorful, and full of twists and turns; and there is a selection of power-ups and weapons to add a soupcon of strategy and loads of zaniness to the experience. In addition, there is a Battle Mode that takes away the racing element and instead focuses exclusively on the power-ups to see who has the best offensive and defensive strategies. It is the same formula that has been seen time and time again and there is nothing here to differentiate itself from any other themed kart-racing titles. Because of the heavily branded Dreamworks content, fans of movies like Shrek and Madagascar will find something to enjoy here, but it is best looked at as a piece of Dreamworks merchandise and not a stellar game in its own right.
