Race to the finish line as you play as Shrek, Marty, Fiona and more in DreamWorks Super Star Kartz for Nintendo DS. Read Kidzworld’s game review for all the details.

DreamWorks Super Star Kartz is a fun racing game that shows striking similarities to Mario Kart. The game offers a large variety of driving courses, including castles, the New York Zoo, traditional speedways and the jungle. Most of the settings are based upon scenes from DreamWorks films, like Shrek and Madagascar.  The player can choose to race as any of the characters from these films, including Shrek, Fiona, Alex the lion, Donkey, Marty the zebra and more.

Kart Up

There are three game modes: Quick Race, Championship and Time Trial. In Quick Race, players can choose from the races they have unlocked. There are four different categories: sun, moon, wind and cloud. Each category has four race courses. In Championship mode, players can test their skills by competing against computer players, trying to earn the top spot. The better you do, the more levels you will unlock. In Time Trial, you can test yourself on individual races, seeing if you can achieve the best time.

Pick Ups

In each race players can collect “pick-ups”, objects that help you get further in the game. These include banana peels, Viking shields, rocket booster, gingerbread kart, mud cube and pumpkin bombs. A lot o these “pick-ups” are also based on DreamWorks films, and add a fun element to the game!

Do the Roar

Another fun aspect of the game is the selection of characters. Each character has a special move that sets them apart from the rest. For example, Marty’s move is called “run with the herd”, and it allows him to run at high speeds and avoid obstacles. Likewise, Shrek can “do the roar”, which scares any other players near him. The controls are very simple to use, and the graphics are impressive for such a small game. Overall, DreamWorks Super Star Kartz is the perfect game for a road trip, bus ride to school or lounging around the house.

Have Your Ever Tried Kart Racing?

  • Yeah - it's an awesome speed rush.
  • Yes - but I didn't really like it.
  • No - but it looks like fun.
  • No. I prefer slower sports like chess.

I'm not saying the characters they have are bad choices, they just don't have enough characters to choose from considering the Wii U is more powerful then a PS3 and a Xbox 360.

super Smash bros for wii u doesn't have any new characters that makes me want to pay $50 when the magorady of the game is Brawl with upscalled + graphics, touch screen gimics and 30 (something) characters on BOTH the wii u and the 3ds verson. for the 3dS it's alriht, but for the Wii U this isn't lookin to good. The wii u is capable of more then that if it can run assasin's Creed 3. I'm still gettin the ame though.

Well, we both hope that Super Smash Bros for Wii U will really save it. I doubt that, but I hope Nintendo doesn't screw up this version like they did with Mario Kart 8. Mario Kart 8 SUCKS compared to Mario Kart Wii... maybe it was best for you to rent the game, because you would SLIGHTLY be disappointed when you beat the game and play online. By the way, I'm getting the new 3DS LL that's coming out next year.

To make a point, that Nintendo needs to do something or the Wii U will be the next virtual boy with no ames. I don't mean literally, no aames but it's missing 3rd party games that last gen consoles are etting such as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
