5.0 out of 5 stars The best game ever created 28 Oct. 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Happy 18th birthday Super Mario Kart. Let us all raise a glass to the game that created a genre, and even now nearly two decades later, still has no equal.

Graphically the game has held up well. It is obviously no Gran Turismo but it is colourful and bright and makes good use of Mode 7 to create what were at the time pretty amazing tracks realised in full 3D. Likewise the music and sound effects are classic Nintendo, bouncy and fun on some levels, atmospheric and spooky on others. Call me old fashioned but I prefer the jingly jangly music of games from the cartridge era to the CD quality sounds we get on modern releases. I have dealt with the aspects of the game that are subject to aging and will now move on to why this game is so timeless.

To put it simply SMK is still superb fun to play. The reasons for this are many.

1 - Excellent track design.
2 - Good balance between driver skill and weapon usage.
3 - The best version of battle mode ever.
4 - Difficulty levels that range from fairly easy up to mind bendingly difficult.
5 - Unlimited replay value as a two player game.
6 - Superb time trial mode that still takes up hours of my life each year.

There is one factor above all the others that makes this the best game ever created. The handling of the karts. Never before or since has absolutely nailing a perfect lap felt like such a pleasure as it does here. 150CC mode in particular is especially satisfying as you build up speed to an insane level and feel yourself slipping into a higher state of consciousness where you become one with the game and the movements that happen on the screen are more to do with your heightened state of being than mere button mashing. Total exhilaration.

This game is a must have classic if you have a snes ,sure it may be outdated now with it's short 5 lap tracks and only being able to use one set of powerups/weapons per lap but who cares ,this super mario kart is the one that started off the mario kart franchise and with it's 8 mario characters including mario ,luigi ,bowser ,koopa troopa ,peach ,yoshi ,donkey kong JR ,toad ,mario kart GP with it's 50cc ,100cc ,150cc classes with mushroom ,flower ,star and special cup races each with traps to avoid on the tracks and the time trials along with the games bright and colourful 2D graphics it's still great fun to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Working Classic 6 Jan. 2012
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The review for this game HAS to have no less than 5 stars as anyone that has played this games knows that this is just a classic.

My nephews have got a SNES console but only had a few games. Therefore I HAD to buy them this game and they love it, just as much as me and their mum used to when we were kids.

I was a little dubious about how well it would work, but of course all old console games are going to be second handed so I had to take the chance. It works brilliantly and is now easily one of the kids favourite games so I'm chuffed!!

It was delivered well before Christmas too which was an added bonus!!

Would definatly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME! 13 Oct. 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is, and always will be, the best game ever to come out on the snes. Basically, if you owned a snes in the 90's, and you didn't enjoy this game, your very very strange. Just quite simply.....WHAT A GAME!!!!!!!!.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Mario Kart (SNES) - Review 15 Oct. 2012
By kia
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When I received the cartridge, it was in perfect condition, with slight yellowness around the back. Upon inserting the game into my console, I did come across some troubles. At first the SNES wouldn't display the game at all, so I reset it, and that's when my TV showed a kind of frozen static. I re-booted both my television and my SNES to discover that it was working. I have not experienced this with any of my other games which still work perfectly well, and I do have to re-boot the SNES every time I wish to play the game. The game quality is perfect though, and compared to my friend's whom I borrowed, it is crisp in both visual and audio quality.I am very happy with my order, and have given it a well deserved 4/5.

It reminds me the years I was at school. My Super Nintendo console is still working fine so the only thing I wanted was the game. It's working perfectly and is in a good condition too as described and arrived in time.
