Excerpt: It’s obvious from the get-go that Double Dash doesn’t steer off the straight and narrow path paved by its older siblings. The controls, weapons, and track locales are akin to Mario Kart 64 in almost every way, shape, and form. Gameplay is mind-numbingly easy, even if you’ve never played a kart racer, or a videogame, at all.
Conclusion: Overall, we have an extremely fun racer. Get your friends over and chat it up and you won’t have a problem with the repetitive sound. Playing this game is a beauty as it is one of a kind. Fighting while racing, taking aim with your green shell while turning a corner, and dropping a banana at the perfect spot in the road are all elements that are only seen in Mario Kart, and that is what makes this game great.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Music aside, This is a great game. Better than Mario Kart 64? Yes. Mario Kart's trademark multiplayer makes this the party game of the year, if not the generation. I'd tell you to go and get it now, but I assume you've already pre-ordered it. Well you have, right?
Conclusion: DD's graphics are nice and colourful, but everything seems less impressive and pleasing than I was expecting it to be. The drivers, passengers and karts all have lots of detail but the tracks and scenery lack definition. This means that everything moves smoothly, but there's little sensation of speed even in the 150cc class - certainly less than the original game managed to convey with its glitchy Mode 7 graphics. A karting game with no feeling of speed?
Pros: Really pretty at times and never less than pleasant to look at., Simple, kiddy-friendly handling., 2-player co-op mode., DD is a perfect "Renter".
Cons: A lack of tracks and variation., The AI toward the end of the game simply cheats to win., Poor multiplayer.
Summary: Lylat Wars is the sequel to Starfox (Starwing in the UK) on the SNES. The original game was the first in a line of games to have the “Super FX” chip embedded in the cartridge and looked fantastic at the time being that no game before it had been so “3D” a
