Product Description

Product Description

Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Wario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Toad, and Bowser put the pedal to the go-kart metal in 20 all-new tracks, plus many hidden courses. Each track has its unique challenges, ranging from the crabs skittering across Shy Guy Beach to the Piranha Plants lurking in the quicksand of Yoshi Desert. Grab coins to max out your speed and blast your rivals with the ever-popular arsenal of red, green, and spiked Koopa shells. You'll earn points with every high-place finish and you'll win trophies with the completion of every four-race cup. Doing well will earn you a high rating and unlock more tracks. Get a couple of link cables and you can compete against three friends--there's a basic multiplayer track that only requires one cartridge amongst you all, though for the full multiplayer experience you'll need a copy of the game each. The game features multiple scrolling planes that move in perspective as you zip through high-speed turns.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Mario Kart 64 was one of the finest games released for the Nintendo 64 platform so it's no surprise that the brilliant racing game would make it onto Nintendo's powerful new handheld Game Boy Advance. And rest assured the game clearly takes full advantage of the graphic power and speed of the GBA. But this version owes more to the seminal Super Mario Kart on the SNES in that it doesn't use the 3D environments of the N64 version.

Still, Nintendo's expertise at sucking players into the game world is strongly evident, and Mario Kart Advance offers enough challenges to keep players, both young and old, entertained. Placing a familiar Nintendo personality, such as Mario, Luigi and even the mushroom man behind the wheel of a sputtering go-kart powered by a 50, 100, or 150-cc engine, the game lets players race computerised opponents or up to four other players (via a cable) on a variety of well-designed tracks. Multiplayer is the key to Mario Kart, and though you'll need four cartridges for the full multiplayer experience there are some limited options for four-way play from a single cartridge.

Because karts lack the power and speed of games (and let's face it you aren't in it for the Gran Turismo 3 adrenalin-pumped experience), drivers must focus on collecting power-ups and non-lethal weapons, such as the snowball and minimiser, 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.--Kristen Bowditch

What can I say?This game is higly addictive and brilliant.A choice of 8 different racers(Mario,Luigi,Yoshi,Peach,Toad,Donkey Kong,Bowser and Wario)who all race differently give plenty of Character choice.There are 16 tracks you can play when you first get the game.Then you unlock 4 more and then anther 4 and another and another and another and finally 4 more.Basically,there are 40 tracks in total and you have to unlock 24 of them!Also 20 of those 24 secret tracks are the exact same 20 tracks from the old SNES game.With 3 different engine types,3 different game modes,40 different tracks and 8 different characters,this game takes a while.Also the graphics are good and I think it is the most colourful game ever on the GBA.I think this should be everyones 1st GBA game.

What can I say- brilliant from start to finish.
8 characters, 3 difficulty settings, 20 tracks (plus bonus one's I haven't yet got) too many power ups to list. FANTASTIC!
Graphically, this game rules- crisp, clear, nigh on perfect. The characters are well aminated- each having their own voice characteristics too.
The control system is easy to use, but why the jump button is also the powerslide button is anyone's guess.
Gameplay wise, nothing beats this game. Only tetris is more addictive. Unfortunately the single pak multiplayer mode only has 1 character (Yoshi, but in four colours) and four tracks- which are pretty dull in comparision with the rest of the game. And it's just standard racing, no battle mode which made the SNES version infamous. But hey- everyone with a GBA will own this game anyway, so there'll be no problem finding a few people for a multipak battle game.
Overall, I can't fault it. An amazing conversion of the SNES classic that somehow is so much better.

if there is one racing game you are going to buy for the gba, make sure it is this one. Addictive, fast flowing and a game you will still be playing six months after youv'e bought the game. Trust me. I still am. You won't rest till you have set an unbeatable time on rainbow road. About the game... where do you start. You can play as 8 classic nintendo characters ( mario, luigi, peach, toad, yoshi, wario, bowser and dk) and race them around brand new tracks or classic snes tracks. All the old pickups are here including the unbeatable blue shell. You will have hours of fun in single player mode but where the game really comes to life is in multiplayer mode. Get a mate round and the days will fly by. Its even got the rare ability of a single pack link. And now... cause its been out for such a a long time you can get it really cheap. Buy now!!!!!

When I played it on the snes, I thought it was amazing. When I played on the N64 I could not believe how they managed to make an excellent game better. Now they have made it even better!
Mario Kart Advance allows you to play one of the best racing games anywhere. You can play as all the characters from the N64 version, each one having there own special abilities, and the graphics are just like that of its N64 counter part (even thought the console is only 32 bit). The controls are very easy and comfortable, A is accelerate, B is brake, L is to fire weapon and R is to jump. The makers have also manage to encorpurate all the weapons from the orignal (fast mushrum, invincible star, homing red shell etc) which all add together to give this game some really good action and game play. Plus the best feature of the game must be the inclusion of all the original race courses from the Super Nintendo version. Infact, the only thing that would have been better would have been the inclusion of the levels from the N64 version.
Apart from this, Mario Kart Super Circuit is one of the best games on the Gameboy Advance and demands attention from every GBA owner, even the ones who are not big racing fans. I do not hesitate in giving this game 5 Stars.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit is an amazing game that will appeal to everyone. The graphics are subtle and they are very good considering it is on a portable machine. They are much better than the SNES game. The game however plays the same. Every gamer will like it. It is not an easy game though, you must slow down at the corners and the enemies fire weapons at you as much as you fire weapons at them. It is a challenge and will last for a long time. The learning curve is good and simple. In other words, it is easier to catch on to than other games such as 'Konami Krazy Racers.' There are 20 original tracks and 20 hidden ones from the original SNES version. In all that is 40 tracks for every difficulty. The courses are colourful and musical. Even if you do not like Mario games or racing games, I can assure you that you will love this. If you love racers and Mario games than you will not need to think twice about buying this game. It is (so far) the best game on the Game Boy Advance. There are eight players to choose from. They all have certain advantages and disadvantages. For example: Toad is fast but not very strong, so he can be bashed around a lot, but Bowser is very strong but he takes a long time to get up to speed. Characters such as Mario and Luigi are average. The most exciting part of the game is the multiplayer mode. Although the N64 versions multiplayer was better, this is still good - especially with four players. It is just like the SNES multiplayer version. Furthermore, you do not need to have four copies of the game to play multiplayer but this unlocks more options and you can trade ghosts. On the whole this game is perfect. It is the best Mario Kart game in single player but in multiplayer, the N64 is better. I strongly advise anyone with a Game Boy Advance to get this game.
