Description

Mario Kart 64, one of the first games released for the Nintendo 64 platform, is an updated translation of the very popular Super Mario Kart for the Super NES (SNES). And while the game clearly takes full advantage of the graphics power and speed of the N64, a few components that made the original so compelling have been left out of this release. Still, Nintendo's expertise at sucking players into the game world is strongly evident, and Mario Kart 64 offers enough challenges to keep players (especially casual gamers) entertained. Placing a familiar Nintendo personality behind the wheel of a sputtering kart powered by a 50, 100, or 150-cc engine, the game lets players race computerized opponents or up to four other players on a variety of well-designed tracks. Because karts lack the power and speed of race cars, drivers must focus on collecting power-ups and nonlethal weapons rather than negotiating hairpin turns on two wheels. Grabbing and using on-track items is the heart of the game's fun: a strategically-placed banana peel sends the unlucky victim into a spin, nailing an opponent with a turtle shell launches their vehicle skyward, and a rocket provides a quick boost to near-breakneck speeds, if only for a moment.

    ### This game, was a great game near the beginning, but got to the point where it was not only too easy, but too boring. The fact that the game is short and easy is the reason I'm rating it at 2. I hope you come out with a newer better version of this...game on Game Cube some time in the future. Read more Less

  • HUGE dissapointment

    By Yahoo! Shopping User  Dec 5, 2001

    ### As soon as this game came out I drove over to my nearest Software etc. to check out what was supposed to be the best game of the best racing series. I got home and popped it into my N64 to try it out, and it is awful! The only good part was the chara...cters. The tracks are lame, the controlling sucks and the CPU is so annoying. Go for FZEROX or Diddy Kong racing if you want a good, high quality game. I must admit, I was glued to the controller after a couple of races, but is has NO replay value at all. So much for killer APP...... Read more Less
