Great kart racing game!
4 November 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Mario Kart 64 was one of the best kart racing games of all time. I put this second only behind Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo.

Basically, I'd say it's the same design layout also except with far superior graphics. Race the courses for first place and fire objects such as green shells, red shells and banana peels at other racers! It has many different locations that provide much depth to the game play (desert, ice, water..etc). Race as Yoshi, Mario, Luigi, Princess, Bowser (King Koopa), Toad or Donkey Kong!

It was also one of the first games released on the newly made Nintendo 64. I had this along with Super Mario 64. A definite hit!

If you enjoyed Mario Kart 64, I recommend Super Mario Kart (Super Nintendo) and Mario Kart: Super Circuit (Game Boy Advance).
