Personal review
I just finished all the challenges last year on this game and boy what a ride. It took me several months but once I figured out how to "doulbe boost" all the squares filled in eventually. This is a must get if you like racing and completing challenges.

Official description
Kirby is zooming onto the Nintendo GameCube with 3D racing action that is simple to learn and bursting with a variety of fun challenges. With the power to inhale enemies and a track record of classic video games, who wouldn't love Kirby? In the hit cartoon series, Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, he is a hero like no other. Now you can hitch a ride on a Warpstar for a racing game that is as unique as lovable ol' Kirby.
Unlike most racing games, there is no need for an acceleration button. One button does it all. Kirby goes full-throttle from the starting line, but you will use one button to brake, slide and charge up your Warpstar for a huge acceleration boost. These out-of-the-ordinary controls are extremely easy to learn, but difficult to master. Sliding through corners while losing minimal speed is the key to fast lap times and players will find that it takes skill and practice.
You begin with the Warp Star, but as you proceed you will gain access to more than 15 vehicles. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Part of the game's challenge is figuring out which is best for a given course.

Editor note
カービィのエアライド literally reads `Kaabi no Ea Raido´ which is transliteration of the character name Kirby and English `air ride´.
