Product Description Review

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). While the game clearly takes full advantage of the graphic 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 up to four of Nintendo's lovable characters 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 non-lethal 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. The multiplayer mode provides enormously chaotic fun for up to four players--flip it on at a party and watch the guests congregate around the screen. --Eric Twelker

Manufacturer's Description

Put the pedal to the metal in this worthy successor to that Super NES classic, Super Mario Kart. Mario Kart 64 boasts great graphics, tons of unique power-ups and a stunning 3-D version of the legendary Battle Mode. Great control--a trademark of all games from Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto--will bring you back time and time again for free-wheeling fun.

Mario Kart 64 races eight familiar faces, including Mario, Bowser and Yoshi, on four progressively tougher four-track circuits. Wide curves and gentle banks mark the Mushroom Cup tracks. Your commute gets notably tougher on the Flower Cup, though. You'll have to dodge semis rumbling on Toad's Turnpike and bounding boulders on fog-bound Choco Mountain. Star Cup tracks range from the icy surfaces of Sherbet Land to the lava lakes of Bowser's Castle. The true test of karting competence, though, comes on the four tracks in Special Cup. Zip through the dark caves and green hillsides of Donkey Kong's Jungle Parkway, cling to the sheer cliffs of Yoshi Valley and hustle over haunted Banshee Boardwalk before tackling the longest track in the game: neon-lit Rainbow Road.

Mario Kart 64 offers two camera angles and three engine sizes: 50cc, 100cc and 150cc. You can gain even more speed by mastering the power slide technique or grabbing Super Star power-ups. Each kart has distinctive handling, acceleration and top speed capabilities. Light karts like Princess's smoothly steer through tight corners, but run the constant risk of getting flattened by heavy karts like Donkey Kong's. Shells that you fire at rival racers, bananas that make them skid out and lightning bolts that make 'em small and very slow are just a few of the game's unique power-ups.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mario Kart 64 22 May 2007
By Mark
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mario Kart 64 is still a classic and is a game I have donwloaded for the Nintendo Wii VC! It is still fun on your own or with mates and it is still looking good graphics wise! This is, among the Mario Kart games, one of the best, just behind Mario Kart DS! This still offers great karting action and great tracks to race on. Multi-player games on here is a right laugh and great fun! Get this while you can! A CLASSIC!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best game ever!!!! 2 Mar 2002
By Boolman
Mario Kart is the one game for me. I've been playing it for 2 years now, and everytime I play it with a big smile. It's the best feeling in the world when you're blowing your opponent of the track with a green or red shell.
It has sixteen tracks, which will never bore you, but the best is the battle mode, in which you have to fight with other players. You can choose between four platforms on which the battle takes place.
I must add a little warning with this game: it's so addictional, you'll forget everything else!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars MarioKart64Rules!!! 12 July 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mario Kart 64 has to be in the top 5 games I have ever played.I had it as a present back in the nineties.I'm still playing it now.This game alone was a good enough reason to purchase a N64.I have played numerous car games from Spyhunter in the eighties to the latest PS3 racers.
This tops them all.When mates are around and the N64 gets a good dusting(as it lives in the loft these days)the races are nail biting and a wretched banana in your way on the home straight when your a split second up is like no other pressure going when your looking to beat a friend to first place.Forget the pressure of Call Of Duty 4 as you've just had your head blown off by someone online.Mario Kart 64 rules and to me personally for all the hours of enjoyment that this game has given always will!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mariokart - so nice. 9 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Mariokart 64 is a computerised act of genius. The ability to race head-to-head aginst 3 friends on courses clearly designed to disrupt regular brain patterns is a godsend to anyone with far too much time on their hands. Tactically, the game improves over time, as even the most innocent-seeming weapon becomes a potential race-winner. Oh so nice. The one criticism of Mariokart 64 would be that it tends to eat into your time, an exmaple of this being the 12 hours we spent, from 10:30 at night until the same time the following morning playing 150 races in honour of the old British Midland advert. Above all though, the best thing about Mariokart is Peach, and her wanton and lustful screams of "Yeah, Peachy's got it", which can seriously start to affect one's mind after 10 or 11 hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loads of fun 11 Oct 2003
This game is great fun, even better with more players (although its harder to see the screen). Can't decide whether this is better than Mario Kart on the SNES. There are a few different characters on this version and different courses and they've introduced a blue shell which is better, although the other characters in Grand Prix mode don't have different weapons like they did in the SNES version. Apart from that it will keep you glued for hours and hours!

5.0 out of 5 stars Battle! 15 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Although overall not as good as its predecessor *six stars outta five it was THAT good!* Mario Kart 64 shows how video games should be, classy, entertaining and fun, and there is nothing better than takin a controler around to your mates house, grabbing 2 more friends *with their own controlers* and having a blast on what is quite simply the second best multiplayer mode currently available on any console *Behind Goldeneye/Perfect DArk* This game is a true masterpiece and the only problem is it's longevity which is rectified by the awesome multiplayer options.

5.0 out of 5 stars best karter ever 22 July 2003
This is a game for everyone,all the die hard gt fans to casual gamers.this isn't a serious game just 100% fun.
If you play this in multiplayer you will never get bored because of the great course designs,fun weapons and the satisfaction of blowing your mate up 10 seocnds from the finish line on the 3rd lap.
In single player it lacks once you complete all over the tournaments,got the fastest score possible in time trial mode there's nothing else to do.that said it's a once in a life-time expirience.
