Review

It would be very easy to dismiss this title as just another fluff Disney game, but the fact of the matter is that Mickey's Racing Adventure is a solid choice for racing fans. The game is viewed isometrically, and you control Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, Donald, or Goofy as they race around tracks filled with obstacles, ramps, power-ups, and Pete's evil cronies. Many of the races consist of both land and water tracks, and you'll instantly switch vehicles on reaching the shore. Each character has a special vehicle, as well as two others that can be purchased with Disney Dollars, which are earned for racing expertise. All of the cars can be upgraded - you can purchase a better accelerator, top speed, and turnbox for each car. These are necessary to complete the game, for as more difficult tracks are unlocked, opponents' vehicles are upgraded automatically. You can also purchase and cast magic spells to disable the competition on the track. In addition to the tight racing are scores of minigames, from a Pipes-style game with a locomotive to Pluto's eight Bone Hunt challenges, which he literally has to dig up to play. Maneuvering the characters around Mickey's world is a task in its own right, as Pete's goons are on the loose and they will steal your hard-earned Disney Dollars if you come into contact with them. The graphics of Mickey's world are nearly perfect: All of the characters are animated as well (if not better) as they are in a Disney cartoon. The musical score is dynamic and vibrant - a pleasant change from the usual three-note themes that are repeated endlessly in so many Game Boy titles. The visuals and the sound during the races themselves aren't up to par with the rest of the title, but they get the job done more than adequately. With more than 20 tracks and six characters to choose from, this title shows how Game Boy racers should be done.--Doug Trueman--Copyright © 1998 GameSpot Inc. All rights reserved.

The game is nice, perfect for road trips.

Very very good.

He's Mickey and he's racing. It's fun, cute, and kid friendly!

Came quickly, good condition and works good. Very happy.

I was a bit skeptical after finding this game in the bargain bin for $3 (it's where most games go when no one wants them anymore) but because it was a Disney game, I decided to try it anyway. I was amazed by the graphics and animation. This isn't your typical racing game as it has mostly a top-down approach, much like it's successor, Mickey's Speedway U.S.A. However, there are better options to tangle with, such as upgrading vehicles and exploring in an overworld map. There is lots to do in this game, and I warn you, it CAN get addictive and hard to put down. There is a certain secret you can unlock with Mickey's Speedway U.S.A. if you link up with another GBC but I don't know what the secret is.

The Pluto digging mini-games aren't so great, especially if you take a hit from Butch or some other obstacle, you have to start the level over. You are required to go through 20 painstaking levels so you can collect 6 bones for Pluto -- you will need them in order to race Pete in his mansion. Spoiler alert: once you beat the time trial modes in the 5 levels (go to Chip 'N' Dale's Treehouse to find out the time requirements), you can get an ultimate souped-up vehicle in Mickey's Garage. The top speed and acceleration are at MAXIMUM, but the cornering is a MINIMUM, making it very hard to steer. So if you manage to access this vehicle, use it to beat the main game if you haven't already done that.

I find this game to be better than it's successor, so for anyone looking to kill some time, why not try out this title?? It's pretty good for a bargain deal. :)

This game is alright but it's a little to childish for me and there's barely any racing in the game all you do is walk around a lot in the game and collect goofy object's that relate nothing at all to racing the only thing this game relate's to is a lot of older and newer disney character's but hey if you like disney a lot then get this game.

This game is defanitly not recomended if you aren't a racing fan. If you are. you'll probably like the first part of the game, the racing part. But once you get in first place in every race you will have to beat all these hard puzzles with Pluto to get to the next racing level. The puzzles were way to hard. I wish you could just skip them. Other then that this game is just fine. You can buy new cars with money you earn from the races. All the puzzles are what kept me from giving it five stars

if ur a racing fan u will like this game but in between each racing game u have to solve a puzzle and if u want to go to the next level and make ur car better u have to win money and it takes a while to get it done. ive been playing this game for about two years and sooner or later ur going to lose intrest and ur gonna have to have tons of patience:(:(
I hope this helped u:)

Hatte das Spiel in meiner Kindheit schon, da ich mir einen Gameboy gekauft habe musste natürlich dieser Klassiker wieder her.
Guter Zustand aber ohne Orginal Verpackung.
Spiel läuft einwandfrei.
Nettes Spiel mit Tollen Features.
Man kann rennen fahren, Mini spiele spielen, man muss sammeln und die Gegend erkunden.
Ein muss für Disney und Rennfahrer Fans ;))

Spiel funktioniert einwandfrei und für 1 € kann ich nichts sagen top
