Thanks OP, picked up one for 360. I saw this in Target on clearance for $20 but there was only one copy and someone had punched a hole through the stupid eco-friendly packaging.

It looks like the only one Amazon has now (for immediate shipment, anyway) is the DS version. The PS3 one is $23.98 from some other seller. However, under "other buying options" the Amazon $11.99 price is listed but it shows as shipping in 2-3 weeks (just as kerig mentioned for the 360 version). Not a big deal really to wait 2-3 weeks for this game, so I put in an order for one.

The game is sort of fun when you play with others. But for all the time they spent with the PS3/360 ports they should have made it online.

I was able to buy a used copy at this price and have to admit that for what it's worth, it's not all that bad. The game doesn't last long and the achievements do come fast but I had a pretty good time. I'm always a fan of kart racing games so for the price you can't go wrong.

Just grabbed one for the 360...Thanks OP! I'm hoping it's at least a decent game...I'd love to have a fun kart game besides Mario Kart.

Seems like an all right deal. I'm waiting for the sonic racing game that comes out next month though. Hopefully that drops in price quick.

got this game a week ago for 19 from some credit at EB, this on the PS3 looks great and the kids love playing 4 player against each on other just like Mario Kart. for 11 bucks its a steal if you have kids. great characters, great fun.

Are you guys really talking about buying a shitty game just for the achievements?

I seen worse.

The gameplay doesn't look half bad with 4 people, and it''s still one of the few "kart" games on PS3.

Its really not a bad game if you like kart racing. The Sonic game definitely looks better, and this is a far cry from Mario Kart, but totally worth it if you're a trophy/achievement whore.

It looks like it'll be at least somewhat fun. Combine that with the cheap price and a relatively easy trophy list, then why not?

Exactly.

I had a kid who bought something from me on ebay, 17 years old, add me on XBLA. Then immediately proceeded to ask me "how old I was" and ridicule me based on the games I played. He asked why I didn't play "good" games like Modern Warfare and Generic FPS #229 and why I played games like G-Force and Spyro. Although those were a very small portion compared to games like Bioshock, Bayonetta, Rock Band and various other "popular" games, I was still judged based on those particular games.

So to you people who feel the need to judge because someone is going to play Madagascar Kartz, Fuck off.

Dang right the kids games are a lot more fun than the Hot games anyway. I'm hooked on LBP . Now to try Kartz:bouncy:

Damn right. After all, why should I have to shit stain my undies when I could buy them pre stained.:whee:

Just got my copy the other day. Played it multiplayer tonight with my wife and it was a lot of fun. You only start off with 3 tracks though, which seems kind of low. What do I need to do to unlock more tracks? We unlocked the 100cc mode or whatever it is doing multiplayer championships, but no new tracks yet. Do I have to unlock and beat all 4 speeds on the same tracks before I get new ones?

Play the 50cc Championship and win it, this will unlock the next set of tracks, there are 9 tracks in all, 18 if you count the mirrored tracks.

For people buying this game for achievements/trophies keep in mind that 3 of them require a second controller and person to play them. I was trying to leave the 2nd controller idle and just use 1 controller for the co-op and it wasn't working at all.


The multiplayer achievements are pretty much impossible to get on your own since both players have to collect the hourglasses (10, 25 and 40)before time runs out. So both racers have to get at least 10 hourglasses,each, to unlock that achievement.

I got this for the 360 on clearance at target. It's fun. I originally got it to play with my kids, but I think it's fun. Closest thing to old-school Mario Kart on the 360 in my mind. Good for fans of the movies.

I would've purchased it easily for 12 bucks, since I have a 10 dollar credit to use, but for 20, nah. I could just as easily put that credit into a 30 dollar game or something at that price.
