All-ages kart racer is fun on the Wii, better on the DS.

It looks very interesting and funny because of the little character there.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (8 ):

MySims Racing may not have tracks or vehicles that are as pretty or imaginative as those found in Nintendo's lauded Mario Kart games. And its motion-sensitive controls, which are cumbersome at first but become more manageable as your cars are upgraded, could frustrate impatient players. But, MySims Racing is still one of the better kiddy racers to come along in some time.

A wealth of customization options earned by winning races will keep players tinkering with their rides for hours. Plus, there are plenty of fun and clever little power-ups never before seen in a kart racer, such as a twister that can spin the screen upside down and throw players for a loop, and an acorn players can toss into the road that will sprout into a giant tree directly in the path of other racers. It's definitely worth a look for boys and girls who get a kick out of kart racing.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
