Trivia

The game is unusual in that Nintendo continues to show commercials for it over three years after its release. Most video games (as with movies and music) are only promoted when originally released. See more »

The Best Mario Kart Game to date
7 January 2006 | by (Gold Coast Australia) – See all my reviews

No I am serious this game makes Double Dash, and MK64 look like pre-school games, Nintendo have finally learned their lesson on previous MK game, with major improvements including:

Better CPU AI (both karts and shells)

Great new tracks (Waluigi pinball is frigging awesome)

Old tracks form the older MK games (like Moo Moo Farm, that was a cool track)

Single Player Battle mode which means you can now play against BOTS in the battle mode, you have no idea how long I have waited for that.

The new tracks in the game are quite a treat, there are many popular tracks in the game (eg: Cheep Cheep beach, Waluigi pinball, DK pass, Tick Tock clock, and new versions of Wario Stadium, Bowsers Castle and Rainbow road).

And the use of two screen with the DS is great while using your main screen to see forward, your lower screen acts as a top down view which can be used really nicely for firing shells and banana peals backwards.

Also Items that were taken away in Double Dash have been brought back into the game, The first and most obvious one being the Boo (which allows you to steal other players items), as well as the triple shells and now the triple banana peals, whats even more great is that you can once again hold items behind you which you couldn't do in DD, and the triple shells once again spin around your kart.

There are also new items, like the Blooper: which shoots oil onto your screen, and slows down computer karts. and the Bullet Bill, which is like Chain Chomp (from DD), but you transform into the Bull and is easier to control.

Battle is great too, if not better than ever, you can have up to 8 players in battle, and they also brought back Block Fort, the best battle stage EVER.

There is a slight downside to the game, the choice of some of the retro track were pretty lame: (c'mon Mushroom Bridge?)

But aside from that, its one of the best games ever,

If you haven't got the game: GO OUT AND BUY IT NOW YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR MISSING
