Customization and a connecting overworld map helps this MySims racing game stand apart from Mario Kart.

Most racing game fans will usually have a Mario Kart game to go with their Nintendo system. Because of this, other racing games need to have something extra to make it worth considering. Luckily, MySims Racing has that special something that helps it stand out from the crowd.


Looking Skin Deep

On the surface, MySims Racing is almost the same as Mario Kart DS. You race against other people or the computer for three laps on a track. Along the way, you can drive through floating gift boxes to get an item that you can use with the L button. These items include a soccer ball that can be fired at an opponent or an acorn that will pop a giant tree obstacle in the middle of the road.


Great Personality and Character

However, in order to get to the races, you must drive around the overworld map, a small town that has several gates opening to different races and also many different people that you can help out by driving them from place to place in return for coins and blueprints. Sometimes you will play crazy taxi, as you must reach certain destinations within a time limit.


These coins can be used along with blueprints[/KWLINK to create new parts for your car and new clothes for your [b]MySim. You can customize your character and your car, improving their look and ability. Aside from just racing, you can also take your car to the tricks area and earn coins by performing spins and [KWLINK 7972]somersaults in the air.


At the Finish Line

The driving controls are fairly good, the ability to drift using the R button is immediately available. The graphics and sound are cutesy and enjoyable, as it usually is for MySims games.Fans of MySims and Diddy Kong Racing DS will definitely like this game.
