Mario Kart DS - Mario Kart is one of the best loved Nintendo franchises and has been keeping players entertained for over a decade.

You can find out in our Mario Kart review.

Race Driver: GRID - Most of the racing games on the DS concentrate on pure fun rather than simulation, but Race Driver: GRID is out to change all that. With a huge variety of cars, tracks and even a fully-fledged track editor, can Race Driver: GRID bring the thrills of big-screen console racing to the tiny handheld? Find out in our Race Driver GRID review.

Ridge Racer DS - One of the first racing games to launch on the DS, Ridge Racer has always been popular with fans. Its exaggerated drifting and fictional physics make sliding and controlling the cars in corners much easier than in the real world. Is this DS outing worthy of the Ridge Racer name? You can find out in our Ridge Racer DS review.

Trackmania DS - Trackmania is one of the most popular "fun" racers on the PC. Players race around daredevil courses taking on loop-the-loops and huge jumps, in a variety of different vehicles. With a thriving community and hundreds of servers and user created tracks, the DS version has a lot to live up to. Check out what we thought of this game by reading our Trackmania DS review.
