VIDEO: Famous game circuits recreated in ModNation Racers

OutRun, Daytona and Mario get a PS3 make-over

Of course we couldn't make a feature of racing games recreated in the latest kart racer without tipping our hat to the genre's grandaddy by making DK's Jungle Parkway track from Mario Kart 64.

Here's the original N64 version:



And here's our own:

This one plays best out of the three, but that's probably because it was designed as a track for kart racing game. Everything from the item placement to the progression of difficulty around the track is beautifully balanced. Mario Kart 64 is a true classic - and now you can race it on PS3! Until the copyright police take it down, of course. Bah.

So that's our first creative effort - what can you do?
