Mario Kart Super Circuit
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
Excerpt: I have had quite the hankering for some retro gaming lately, and Mario Kart Super Circuit on the Gameboy Advance (GBA) certainly fits the bill. I found this game for under twenty bucks under the Player’s Choice label. For those that have played the Nintendo DS version this is a very nice way to see the roots of the series, since the GBA version has much more in common with the Super NES (SNES) version (editor: hence the retro gaming crave).
Excerpt: There has been an overabundance of racing games for the GBA. Mario Kart: Super Circuit is a remake of the SNES classic Super Mario Kart. Many still remember when Super Mario Kart actually created the kart-racing genre. You get to control the Mario cast such as Bowser, Peach, Wario, and of course Mario.
Excerpt: I was quite surprised when I first started playing Mario Kart Super Circuit. It was strikingly similar to the SNES version, the best version of the game in graphics and racing, yet featured all the advancements of the N64 version. I was shocked to find that it was actually one of the better games on the GBA too. I came in with such low expectations, and it turned out that all the haters were wrong.
Excerpt: Mario Kart: Super Circuit is a thrilling racing game that has you on your toes every second. Its handling is much more realistic than earlier games. The graphics are incredible too! This game offers you a vast array of weapons to obtain, including banana peels, mushrooms (boosters), and the ever popular star! There are four cups, which each have four races each. There is also a special cup. The better you do on the races, the better ranking you get.
Pros: Multi-player mode is good for long road trips, or just playing at home. It's my favorite part of the whole game!
Cons: Ghost races aren't that great, because there are no other racers. But trying to beat your record is a good challenge.
