ProLots of play options in single player.

ConsThe Multiplayer options are pretty poor overall.

Well sure of course I must... When the first Mario Kart arrived for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System it was a massive hit and no wonder. Set with a handful (plus three) beloved characters from the platformer franchise and filled with themed courses and a great battle feature it was...

ConsDoes not make use of dual screen technology.

Every now and then a game comes along that bares no comparison with others in its genre and it is simply superior to its competitors. A game such as this has no equal and is often cloned but never bettered. Mario Kart is such a title. In its various formats be it that of the original Super...
