Why Mario Kart: Double Dash Is Better Than Mario Kart 8

N247 writes: Mario Kart 8 is proving to be one of the most popular Mario Kart games of the series, and a good majority of people would agree that it’s their favorite. In fact, it’s one of the reasons why I decided to buy a Wii U. There is no denying that Mario Kart 8 is one of the best games in the series. However, I still find that Mario Kart: Double Dash for the Nintendo GameCube is a much better game, and these are the reasons why.

Double Dash is the best MK imo. So many good features.

elhebbo161613d ago

imo MK8 tops it, its just better in so many ways. The only negative would be the battle mode but besides that nintendo out did themselves with this one.

BattleN1613d ago

Challenge mode is another disappointing aspect of MK8

I haven't played the new Mario Kart for the Wii U, last one I played was Double Dash and I thought it was pretty weak for a Mario Kart game. The Mario Kart for SNES and N64 were better.

I hope the Wii U one is better than Double Dash. From what I've heard, it is.

racewise and certainly graphics, MK8 is a clear winner. Battlemode? Doubledash every single time. That's all I've ever wanted online. That battle mode with the MK8 item customization would be heaven.

I agree. My friends and I have put over 300 hrs of just multiplayer. Yoshi's track in mirror mode.

I always liked the snes battle mode better. It felt like a violent pilot wings lol. I'm liking mk8 way better than double dash.... I actually did not like double dash due to it being sluggish for a mariokart game.

Hidden gems for sure. Although the dreamcast also has some great gems as well.

If your PC is strong enough you can run dolphin.

elhebbo161613d ago

Its a Gamecube/Wii emulator. Like visual boy advance if you ever heard of that one.

Wind waker
Metroid prime
Double dash
Battalion wars
Fire emblem

Def jam fight for NY, double dash, prime, skyward sword, twin snakes, mario sunshine, melee, strikers, party, super monkey ball.

I believe that the GameCube has bedn the single greatest local multiplayer console of all time.
