Well it’s yet another blockbusting chart topping record breaking game from Rare. If you liked Mario Kart you’ll like this but I’m sorry to say that Mario is slightly better than this, but don’t get me wrong this game still is great, quite possibly one of the best for the N64. It has super smooth graphics and characters that will make you feel like you’re six years old. The multiplayer is also great and the graphics don’t decrease like some games to basic polygons. It’s now on that silver boxed edition so it’s now only a snip at 29.99. For that much on a Rare title you can’t go wrong. Read the complete review

N64 Mario Kart was disapointing. Very disapointing. The original Mario Kart was inspirational, one of the most finely tuned games ever. However, all was not lost for the Nintendo faithful, as Rare produced this charming little gem of a title. Merging the gameplay of a racer with presentation closer to a platform game or a beat-em-up, it produces a fresh and enjoyable title. Those who played Mario 64 may recognise the way in which this game is made. Buy racing through the races, you earn balloons. Getting to the later races requires a certain number of balloons. Each stage can be played in a number of ways, such as a flat out race or collecting special ... Read the complete review

Diddy Kong enhances the basic karting game with an additional adventure game. By playing up the adventure game you open up more racing courses, leading to a face down with the boss for each section of courses. Once you've completed the different regions you then go on to face the final boss. I have to admit that I've not yet managed to beat him, the game can be very difficult at times. There's also the standard racing game, which is immense fun when played against friends. Graphics are excellent, colourful and cute, giving the game a distinct style. There's hours of gameplay as you struggle to beat each level. Variety of gameplay is introduced ... Read the complete review

In my opinion, this is the best karting game there is, even better than the original which started the whole craze, Mario Kart on the SNES. It is FAR better than Mario kart 64. There are many gameplay modes, which are all excellent. There is the adventure, which I still haven't completed, this is a cross between a platform game and a karting game, as you have to win each track to get more golden baloons to be able to get more tracks unlocked. Then when you have got all the tracks from a particular world, you have to beat the baddie in a race with just you and him, who lives on that island. This is so addictive, it's unbelievable! It took me hours to finally Read the complete review

This game was given to my younger sister when she was ten. I would say that by face value my parents made a good decision as the graphics, characters and sound effects are all very childlike, which unfortunately makes this game immensely annoying for an older gameplayer. There is also a problem with my sister playing it, it's actually quite difficult and takes a while to master, so in my eyes Nitendo have gone for the wrong balance as the gameplay is more suited to me (16 years old) but the game content is more suited to my little sister. If you enjoyed Mario Kart 64 then you will probably enjoy this but I would say that after playing Mario Kart 64 ... Read the complete review
