I bought this for my 6 year old daughter. We all love Mario Karts and thought this would be similar. It is and the children all love it - I have to wait until they've all gone to bed to get my fix! One little moan would be that even on easy mode, I find the racers go very fast and I can hardly see where I'm going, no-one else in the family have noticed this though so perhaps I need a trip to the opticians! All in all a good all rounder for hours of fun.
