Gameplay Single player mode The game has 38 unique tracks, including four new tracks that were not in the N64 version. The tracks are contained in themed worlds such as Dino Domain, Snowflake Mountain, Sherbet Island, Dragon Forest, and Future Fun Land. Adventure 2 is unlocked by completing Adventure 1, and that doubles the tracks to 76 tracks. Multiplayer mode Once beating a track in Adventure mode, it becomes available for single card multiplayer.

The same goes for Smokey Castle Battle Mode. * The voices have been changed. * The car's tight-corner maneuver has been removed. * The Silver Coin challenges from the original have been replaced with balloon-popping challenges.

I'd just like to know how well it preserves the original experience. I loved DKR64, and I hope DKRDS will be just as fun (maybe even more fun). Strangely enough, it was this game on the 64 that made me look at my gameboy and say, "God I wish i could play this on you."

Things and stuff.

Not as good as the original.
