Mario Kart 64 is the 64-bit sequel to one of the best-selling games of the 16-bit era. Mario and his peers race against each other around lap-based tracks, using special items to their advantage. Items of mischief with roots in the Nintendo universe include banana peels, Koopa Troopa shells, ghosts, invincibility stars and more.<br><br>Eight of Nintendo's best-known characters -- Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario and Bowser -- make an appearance in the sequel. Sixteen circuit tracks are divided among four Cups (Mushroom, Flower, Star and Special) and four battle tracks are included, too.<br><br>Mario Kart 64 also features the same gameplay modes as the original. Mario GP, which is for one or two players, pits your character in a series of races against the rest of the computer-controlled field. The VS mode is for two to four players, with no computer competition. Little "kart bombs" populate the track to make things even more interesting. Battle is the famous mode in which two to four players chase each other around a closed arena. <br><br>A Time Trial mode also exists for one player. For the sequel, Nintendo implemented a feature that enables ghost riders of your best races to be saved. Additionally, the go-karts are available in three engine sizes: 50cc, 100cc and 150cc. The engine size affects the speed of the game.<br><br>Peripheral support is available with the Controller Pak and Rumble Pak. The game does contain a built-in EEPROM chip to save your options and your best times, but an entire Controller Pak is required to save two ghost riders from the Time Trial mode. Less

One of Nintendo's flagship series, which in 1992 helped spawn a new style of whimsical racing games, makes its long-awaited GameCube debut with the release of Mario Kart: Double Dash!! For those unfamiliar with the series, play involves selecting a character -- each rated in such areas as acceleration, speed, and handling -- and then competing against friends or computer opponents on an assortment of courses inspired by locales from previous Nintendo games. New to this installment is the addition of go-karts with two seats, allowing players to select two characters instead of one.<br><br>The character behind the wheel is responsible for steering and acceleration, while the character in back tosses out a collection of six offbeat power-ups, from banana peels to turtle shells, as well as eight character-specific items. The object is still to use these power-ups to delay the opposition long enough to reach a first-place finish. Players are also free to switch character positions at any time during the race, to take advantage of a particular character's special abilities on offense or their superior skills while driving.<br><br>Featured characters in the game include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Baby Mario, Yoshi, Birdo, Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Baby Luigi, Koopa, Bowser, Baby Bowser, and Paratroopa. As in previous games in the series, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! features a variety of multiplayer modes, where up to four players can race each other on a split-screen or battle it out in specially designed arenas. The courses can be played at different times of the day and feature dramatic changes in elevation as well as varied terrain. Less

    Mario Kart 64 could possibly be called the most popular Nintendo 64 racing game. Of course Nintendo is the company responsible for unleashing the character Mario, and Mario has proved to bring great success to Nintendo. There is just something about this short, plump, Italian guy that we all love... Read full review »

    It seems like I am the only one over the age of 8 who likes this game. I love it. It is a simple game with much repetition that is what I like in a video game.

    This fun game has great graphics. The music is not annoying to listen to. There are even a few secrets. It is a 2-D game. If you... Read full review »
