Having been a huge Kirby kid, I was kinda thrown for a loop when I saw this one. It was certainly a novel type of racing game at least. I liked that there 3 different main modes, my friends and I definitely played City Trial the most. That felt like the most unique thing here, and we got pretty good at it. Top Ride was also neat, in a pretty old-school way. Ironically the main Air Ride mode was probably my least played, although it was still fun once in a while. Solid game

I respect this game going for something unique. No one can deny. But while it is interesting, its also....not great. Like its a better Sonic Riders, but I really don't like Sonic Riders so that's not that much of a compliment. It's an interesting try it out once type deal.

I tried this with a friend who was very enthusiastic about it, especially the multiplayer. It's very reminsicent of SSBM menu's but I REALLY couldn't get into the driving mechanics in this game. I'm sure with some skill the acceleration will stop feeling so stunted but It's just not for me. I still want it to get ported to Switch tho....

unironically the most kino racing game even if they remade this game it'll never live up or be the same

Pretty much only good for city trial. The other modes are good maybe once or twice, but city trial can be played pretty much endlessly and not get tiring.

I didn't understand how City Trial worked so I just wandered around and roleplayed as Kirby
