The Digimon crew have tackled many challenges. What else was left? Well, maybe jumping into miniature race cars, revving up the engines and taking off around pretzel-like tracks in pursuit of an elusive trophy?
Did the world need a Digimon kart racer? Not particularly. But as Mario Kart clones go, this one's pretty decent. If you're a big Digimon fan, you can put a couple more points on the score. Otherwise, you can probably live without this one.
- Damn the success of Super Mario Kart. Ever since that game hit the Super NES, we've had character kart racing featuring anyone from Bomberman to Crash Bandicoot to Spongebob. It's the "default" genre: when in doubt, throw eight characters in a racing game. Boom. New franchise. The latest culprit is Bandai, sending it Digimon characters to the pavement in a Mario Kart-style competition. Of the literally half dozen kart racers already available on the Game Boy Advance, Digimon Racing isn't all that bad. But apart from being the first racing game to offer Wireless Adapter support (the one that's packed-in with Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen, the game doesn't offer much in the way of unique kart mechanics, and technical issues prevent it from being a truly great racer.
Voici donc un petit jeu sans prétention mais qui fera plaisir aux fans. On aurait aimé des courses un brin plus nerveuses ou un gameplay amenant quelques nouveautés mais malgré ces tares, Digimon Racing est un cht'it soft amusant qui vous fera passer d'agréables moments pour peu que vous n'ayez rien contre des bêbêtes criant leur nom dès qu'ils subissent la plus petite transformation.

Digimon Racing est, bien entendu, une sorte de Mario Kart avec les bébêtes made in Bandai pour protagonistes. On aurait pu s’attendre à une mauvaise utilisation d’une licence célèbre, or les amateurs des petits monstres ne seront pas déçus. Les idées nouvelles ne sont cependant pas légion, on doit attraper des options sur la piste et les utiliser contre ses adversaires.
A very solid and at times hugely enjoyable title, that is let down by problems that are becoming all too common in this genre. It looks better than most, sounds worst than most and is at times massively unfair. At the end of the day there is nothing original about Digimon Racing, and it certainly owes a lot to a certain plumber-based racer. Entertaining, but ultimately flawed; perhaps one to rent?
Digimon Racing makes no attempt to cover up its intention to follow the Mario Kart formula. With the exception of the Digital Monsters as the stars, all the familiar powersliding go-cart action has been faithfully recreated with the precision of a star pupil. What it does, however, is offer fans of the cartoon series a reasonably fun diversion for the twenty-three and a half hours between episodes.

What did Bandai do to make this game a chore to play? That's the problem, Bandai didn't do anything to make this game unique. Think of this game as the extra-light version of Mario Super Circuit with Digimon characters. If you're reading this review online by yourself, then I think you are too old to get any real fun out of this game. Get this game for a kid who likes Digimon. He or she won't really mind if he has to play a boring game as long as he can play as the characters in the show.
