Summary: I remember having the N64 as a kid, and this was the game all the family got involved in. With 8 playable characters - Mario, Luigi, Toad, Yoshi, Peach, Wario, Donkey Kong and Bowser, each having different strengths and weaknesses, there was a decent selection to choose from, though you were bound to have a favourite! There were 4 'cups' each with 4 race courses. Mushroom cup was the simplest, with the others being a bit more complex.
Worth buying an N64 just to own this game, amazing 4-player ...

Summary: I still own this game and my N64. When I took on adult like responsibilities such as a mortgage and being a father, most of my gaming passion faded away and died. But not this one, and I'm glad to say my friends and I still get together once in a while and have a full night of karting bliss.
Pros: Hours of fun, relive your youth, great for social events, inexpensive to buy
Cons: not owning this game would be your only disadvantage
Excerpt: "Mario Kart 64 the second game in the Mario Kart series, possibly a let down compared to the SNES version, although i personally wasn't fond of the SNES version either. The game features 16 tracks much like most other Mario Kart games, and 8 characters. The game supports up to 4 players in versus and battle modes, and 2 players in versus, battle and Grand Prix (Otherwise known as the story mode). The game has good gameplay, features decent challenging ...
Pros: 8 Driver races in 2 player mode, good fun especially in 2 player mode, good tracks .
Cons: Poor graphics on the characters, some glitches
Summary: I remember sitting hours playing this with my friends when I was younger. We used to obviously race the circuits, but also spend hours laughing and messing around in the battle and vs. modes. You can play all your favourite nintendo characters such as mario, luigi, donkey kong, yoshi, princess peach, toad, bowser and many more!
Excerpt: "Mario Kart is a popular title and as of yet I've never played the DS or Wii version but have indulged in both the N64 one and its SNES counterpart, although I prefer Diddy Kong Racing as a joyful racing game, this is definitely up there with it. When I think of Nintendo in the 90s, this is the kind of great title, I think of. THe graphics are superb, the gaming is so fun and obviously whilst some racers will be better than others, the game does ...
Summary: Mario Kart has been made on the SNES, N64, DS and Wii, and Mario Kart 64 is definitely the best. The classic game is tense, crazy and can change in seconds, as you pick up weapons and shoot them at the other racers. One of my favourite games as a child, Mario Kart 64 can be played by people of all ages, resulting in endless fun! As it is a 'retro' game now, it is probably rare, and might be expensive. The gameplay is smooth - it's fairly simple, but effective.
Pros: Fun, tense and constantly changing postitions! Great mulitplayer too.
Cons: None! Although I wish there were even more courses!
Summary: Mario Kart 64 is one of the best multiplayer experiences on the Nintendo 64, a fact which still holds true in this generation of games consoles. The single player is split into a number of cups, each one consisting of a handful of races and increasing in difficulty. There are three settings - 50cc, 100cc and 150cc - with the opponents getting tougher as the numbers get higher.
Summary: Now you can race with your favorite Nintendo characters including : Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, DK, Wario and Bowser. However, I will warn you i your characters get knocked out by another characters during the game, and the speed levels of getting back on track is different to other character depending if you have a light character like peach or toad, it will take less longer, a character like Mario, Luigi or Yoshi will take average time, so not too long, not too...
Pros: awesome game, anyone can play - up to four people
Summary: If you have ever played the original mario kart for the super nintendo you know what to expect here! Mario and chums race in 4 different cups in order to take home the gold, whilst collecting special items which can help you in the race for first place. But everything that made mario kart so addictive and playable is present here except this time its a whole lot better!! This time the game is fully 3D with new and better characters, items and race courses.
Pros: Excellent courses, brillant battle mode, very addictive gameplay, great character roster
Cons: The computer racers cheat (they go faster when they need to in order to catch up to you)
Summary: When I was a student in the distant past I shared a flat with four other guys. We had a 14in old TV and an N64, the only game we ever played was Mario Kart. I through the SNES version was good but this one is better, a lot better. Not only do you get more tracks / power ups / etc you get the best new feature off all. Four player split screen multi player. Its super there is nothing better than racing 3 off your friends in a heated dash to the finish line.
