Product Description

Product Description

Mario Kart 64.

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


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all ages! November 29, 1999

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best racing games on the N64 May 11, 2002
Format:Video Game
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The must-have game for the N64 December 7, 1999

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Drove the Game to the Maximum! November 4, 2001
A Kid's Review
Format:Video Game
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Mario goes to the speedway August 30, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mario Kart 64 is a very well made game. Good graphics,nice sound and most of all, fun! The game allows one to four players to join in the action. There are 16 racing games and four battle games of racing,mayhem, and Mario! One to two players can race for a Cup. There are four cups and four race tracks to go along with each cup. You can race by yourself for time trials but that's not much fun. Racing with friends is more fun and speaking of friends the battle mode is for two to four players only. One player can't play any of the four battle modes. The battle mode is where each player has 3 balloons. Every time players hit one of your balloons with a weapon,one balloon will fly away. But you can get back at them by doing the same. Once a player looses all of their balloons they lose. The last person still with balloon(s) is the winner. Your Go Kart drivers are almost all from the old Super Nintendo game,Super Mario Kart. Mario,Donkey Kong,Peach,Wario,Yoshi,Toad,and Luigi are your racing friends for this adventure. One of the first racing games the N64 has ever seen,this game is racing but with a friendly touch. No violence or unless you think getting hit by a shell is violent. This a fun game for the whole family to enjoy.
