5.0 out of 5 stars Double Dash, 4 Nov 2003
This review is from: Mario Kart: Double Dash! (GameCube) (Video Game)
As I'm sure you'll all agree, Mario Kart on the N64 was the pinnacle of multiplayer racing. It still to this day gets the odd run around with a few friends, that was until I recieved this delightful package!
Double Dash is a spruced up version of MK64, with gorgeous graphics, a shed loads of characters to play with and a new take on the kart classic. This being that there are two characters per kart - so you get to weigh up the Speed, Acceleration and Weight attributes by carefully choosing two different characters as well as the actual racing kart.
The Single player game and multiplayer VS. modes are very similar to the MK64 version as are the general track layouts. This, however, isn't a bad thing as it is what kept the Mario Kart games a cut above the rest. Hitting the'?' blocks will reveal the original weapons from MK64 as well as character specific ones - whoever is on the back of the kart will collect the weapon - you can change mid race between the driver and backseat thrower, in order to get each characters special weapon.
The game really shines in the 2-player CO-Operative Mode!
Yes you heard me right - player 1 starts off as the driver and player 2 as the weapon thrower! You can, as always switch characters, but in order to win, you will have to practice transferring positions and turbo skids in order to time them right. This is the real change to the Mario Kart franchise and is not to be missed - A Grand Prix, 1 cart and 2 players -
Let The Good Times Roll.
