Mario Kart 64 (N64)
Advantages: Excellent courses, brillant battle mode, very addictive gameplay, great character roster
Disadvantages: The computer racers cheat (they go faster when they need to in order to catch up to you)
If you have ever played the original mario kart for the super nintendo you know what to expect here! Mario and chums race in 4 different cups in order to take home the gold, whilst collecting special items which can help you in the race for first place.
But everything that made mario kart so addictive and playable is present here except this time its a whole lot better!! This time the game is fully 3D with new and better characters, items and race courses. Lets start with the character roster.
The playable characters are:
In mario kart 64 there are 4 cups altogether, these include the mushroom, flower, star and special cup (The easiest cup is the mushroom while the hardest is the special) each cup contains 4 courses to race on. There are also 3 types of engine power you can choose from, they are 50cc, 100cc and 150cc (again the more engine power the faster you will be but also the faster the computer racers will be which makes it harder. So choosing the special cup with 150cc engine is proper hardcore!!)
This game is an absolote gem if you have a nintendo 64 you have to purchase this game, even if you have a nintendo wii you can download this game from the virtual console. Mario kart games has that ability for anyone to pick it up and play it and enjoy it no matter if its an hardcore gamer or your gran most people will really enjoy this gem of a game. Till this day mario kart 64 still is my favourite version of the mario kart series with the excellent courses, music and the best battle mode up to 4 players! It really is racing gold.
Summary: Simply put the best racing game out there bar none!
