Advantages: great for a party
Disadvantages: not so much fun on your own
I remember sitting hours playing this with my friends when I was younger. We used to obviously race the circuits, but also spend hours laughing and messing around in the battle and vs. modes.
You can play all your favourite nintendo characters such as mario, luigi, donkey kong, yoshi, princess peach, toad, bowser and many more! They all got different advantages and disadvantages, which you need to discover for yourself before you learn which one suits your driving style best.
The courses are very imaginative and colourful, making them great fun to drive. The mystery boxes you pick up as you drive are just genious. You can lay banana skids, bombs and all sorts of mischiefs for your opponents to crash into - great fun!
Also a lot of the courses have secret shortcuts that once you have found them, are ver valuable indeed as the computer controlled characters never use them.
You can choose how big engines you want to drive with and how difficult the computer charachters should be to beat - so start off easy then work your way up. Once you have completed all the tournaments on in all the different egine classes something interesting will happen.....
Also you can practice/set record times on the circuits when itīs just you driving. A good way to look for the secret shortcuts and get to master the course. If you do a brilliant lap, you can save the data and then next time you try - you can have your "ghost" racing against you, so if you beat the ghost - you have beaten your previous record.
Summary: a nintendo classic that still entertains
