Mario Kart 64, one of the first games released for the Nintendo 64 platform, is an updated translation of the very popular Super Mario Kart for the Super NES (SNES). And while the game clearly takes full advantage of the graphics power and speed of the N64, a few components that made the original so compelling have been left out of this release.

Still, Nintendo's expertise at sucking players into the game world is strongly evident, and Mario Kart 64 offers enough challenges to keep players (especially casual gamers) entertained. Placing a familiar Nintendo personality behind the wheel of a sputtering kart powered by a 50, 100, or 150-cc engine, the game lets players race computerized opponents or up to four other players on a variety of well-designed tracks. Because karts lack the power and speed of race cars, drivers must focus on collecting power-ups and nonlethal weapons rather than negotiating hairpin turns on two wheels. Grabbing and using on-track items is the heart of the game's fun: a strategically-placed banana peel sends the unlucky victim into a spin, nailing an opponent with a turtle shell launches their vehicle skyward, and a rocket provides a quick boost to near-breakneck speeds, if only for a moment.

The multiplayer mode provides enormously chaotic fun for up to four players--flip it on at a party and watch the guests congregate around the screen. --Eric Twelker

Pros:

  • Well-designed tracks
  • Simple controls
  • Strong multiplayer appeal
Cons:
  • Computerized opponents sometimes pull off questionable feats

Ok, I am 26 years old. I rented this game so my girlfriend's 16 year old brother would have something to do over Thanksgiving when I visited. We ALL ended up playing this game! It is an incredible amount of fun, and it's reply value is incredibly high. I wish there was better music, but it would take away from the sound effects, which are definitely very good. This game is a must for all ages, particularly those who like to play games with other people. Note, if you want to play a 4 player match, you should have a pretty big TV.

If you like racing games, you cannot ignore MarioKart 64. If you have several people to play against each other, this game will rarely leave your console. If you play solo, even after you have repeatedly beaten it, it is still fun to tool on the computer driven players. Graphics are excellent, and it takes very little time to master.

Mario Kart 64, the sequel to the first Mario Kart game on the SNES is great. Nintendo got rid of some of the things that made the SNES title so much fun, but added a lot too. The gameplay is much more enhanced, the characters look much better and the individual go-karts are very realistic.
Like the SNES version, this game includes 3 modes of play: GP (Grand Prix), Battle, and Time Trial. In GP you choose one of 8 characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Wario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, and Bowser in a large variety of courses in the Mushroom Cup, Flower Cup Star Cup, or Special Cup (which you unlike by getting gold trophies in each of the 3 basic courses) in 50cc, 100cc, or 150cc mode. 50cc is the easiest, but in 100cc and 150cc the computer gets much faster and more challenging. There are several items you can collect by driving through the question mark boxes which help you during each race. Lightning bolts (the rarest item to get) makes all of the other opponents small, mushrooms give you a speed burst, banana peels make one of your opponents crash if they slip on it, red shells are used to shoot directly at an opponent to get them off course, and green shells keep bouncing off the walls until it hits one of the racers. Unlike the SNES Mairo Kart game, there are several objects you need to avoid to stay on course. In different races there are trucks and cars that will make you crash if you hit them, snowmen that will blow up if you hit them, and many other obstacles in different courses.
In Battle mode you and up to 3 others choose one of the 8 characters. You drive around a course trying to pop each other's 3 balloons. You can pop their balloons by shooting red or green shells at them or throwing banana peels at them to make them slip.

Our son brought this game home from college more than 4 years ago and taught us how to play. My husband & I bought our own game unit and a Mario Kart game because when our son goes back to school, he takes Mario with him! When we are all together during school breaks, we all play this game together. Our older daughter, who is in her mid-twenties, joins us, and it is definitely part of our "family time". When the kids are not here, my husband & I play this game - sometimes he wins, sometimes I win. But we enjoy it very much.

Driving around in a car on a computer using arrow keys is boring. You just get to see a stupid racing car going around on a race track, on a tiny computer screen. You need some excitement here!! First of all, you get to choose your favorite character: Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, DK, Bowser, Toad, Wario or Peach. Then, you get to choose an antique course, and go for the cup! No course is quite the same, no matter how much you play it. I love how I can drive all over the course, with the other top three drivers, driving as fast as we can for the top place. It is wonderful how anyone can just sweep by everyone else and be in the lead, just with a click of a button and of course, an item. I have very fond memories of driving on Kalimari Desert, among the 1-3 top drivers. I was in 2nd, Peach in first, and Donkey Kong in 3rd. Even though I have played that course just about a bazillion times, that course is still as fun as ever, and not to mention as challenging! I highly recommend this game. Mario Kart 64 has brought a whole different world full of joy and delight for me, and it will for you and your family, too.

My weekends during high school revolved around playing this game with friends, yelling, and ingesting copious amounts of kool-aid and chips. Maybe it's the nostalgia talking but even today this game is insanely fun to play. Let's remember the N64. Cartridge system, ahead of its time, player of some of the most memorable games of the past 30 years. Mario Kart 64 is definitely one of those games. Graphically, it was gorgeous in the 90's. The colors are vibrant, character models are blocky(anti-aliasing wasn't cared about much back then), and the music freakin' rocked! Game play is excellent with each racer having their own feel. There are tons of power ups and weaponized items to truly jack up your competition which helps to create some of the most frustration last second finishes or losses probably ever.

For nostalgia's sake, get this game, pop it in, disregard that it looks blocky on a new TV, and enjoy the memories!
