Advantages: Fun, tense and constantly changing postitions! Great mulitplayer too.
Disadvantages: None! Although I wish there were even more courses!
Mario Kart has been made on the SNES, N64, DS and Wii, and Mario Kart 64 is definitely the best. The classic game is tense, crazy and can change in seconds, as you pick up weapons and shoot them at the other racers.
One of my favourite games as a child, Mario Kart 64 can be played by people of all ages, resulting in endless fun! As it is a 'retro' game now, it is probably rare, and might be expensive.
The gameplay is smooth - it's fairly simple, but effective. You can play this for ages, and not get bored, as no race is ever the same.
There are 16 courses, with 4 cups (4 courses in each cup). There are also 4 difficulty levels - 50cc, 100cc, 150cc and Mirror mode which is confusing at first!
This game is still hard to win on the hardest levels. I've played this recently with my friends (we're all 20) and it is so nostalgic! There is also battle mode, where you have 3 lives, and have to attack your friends and hit them with weapons.
There are 8 characters, all from the Mario games:
The courses are all diverse, and have small shortcuts sometimes.
Weapons can be obtained by driving into multicoloured boxes on the course. The people who are further to the back of the pack will get the better weapons, like a star, or lightning!
The music is also very catchy and speeds up on the last lap!
This game really is fantastic - and although these words are used, it is definitely a timeless classic.
I would recommend Mario Kart, it is simply superb, and has stood the test of time brilliantly.
Summary: A great game that has stood the test of time briliantly, and will do in the future! Play it!
