Super Mario 64 Meets Nascar,
This review is from: Crash Bandicoot: Nitro Kart (Video Game)
I'm a big fan of racing games, and got this one for my birthday (which, as I've said before, is a GREAT value).
This game has a storyline, but here you go--If you don't care about the storyline, it doesn't really matter that much. Just go racing!
If you do care about the storyline, you are supposed to try and escape from the evil alien (close enough) To do this, you need to win enough races to qualify to race his champions. This is where you meet Super Mario 64. In simplest terms there is a world that you drive around in which connects all of the race tracks together. You have to win at certain ranking levels before you can progress on to new tracks. There are also challenging, hard-to-get-to areas that require you to learn the car's special moves.
This pays off though, because then you know how to use them in the races, and you win more often. In the races, you get better at the moves, which in turn helps you get to more hard spots in the world map.
This is a fun game for up to four players. The basic controls are easy to learn, and the advanced controls are relatively easy to learn, but take longer to master. If you like storylines, you'll love this game. If you don't, you'll enjoy the game, but may get frustrated trying to unlock extra tracks and vehicles.
