I found good and bad in both Mario Kart Super Circuit and DS...but was (and still am) an unapologetic lover of Double Dash. Mario Kart is in my blood.
After a few quick laps with the import version of Mario Kart Wii today, it's pretty obvious that I'm going to need way more time to figure out how I feel about this particular installment. At first, my inner purist felt completely turned off by the inclusion of bikes, but then I initially hesitated at Double Dash's dual-manned vehicles and co-op racing, too. Yet, when you factor in the new trick system that also seemed completely superfluous my uncertainties multiplied."
