Up there with the greatest games ever
8 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well what can I say most of you know the mario kart series very well especially if your here, so you should know its excellent. For one I don't really like racing games there's very few series' out there that I will play and this here has to be the best franchise by far now from all the tracks, the rewards, the multi player, this was the the leader of its time you update the graphics put it up there with todays games it sticks with the best. All of the sounds were done very well the controls were just perfect, only real problem I have is the dumb AI from 50 ccs (easiest difficulty) to 150 ccs (hardest difficulty) the AI makes dumb decisions and somehow for every cup you have the same people in 1st and third even though you know those guys out the most they keep coming like water in a flood but it still doesn't kill the glory beauty and funess of this game Mario Kart 64 is right in my top 10 ever if you haven't played it get it its worth every penny you'll play
