GamesRadar looks at the evolution of Mario Kart and debates whether it is going in the right direction.
Double Dash wasn't as good as the others. I thik ever since they started going with the special toy looking cars to match each character, it kinda became too kiddish. And it feels that way also.
Mario Kart DS and the original SNES Mario Kart are the only two i really like. I didn't care that much for the N64 version and definitely didn't like the "tag team" stuff in Double Dash. I'm worried a little about the Wii version too. I'm afraid the controls will be too loose due to the motion controls.
It has no style because it isn't a first person shooter (deserves a 10/10) *sighs*
N64 topped it for me. Wasn't a big fan of Double Dash but put up with it. DS version is pretty fun. Maybe Wii version will be big enough to have a lot of the old school charm with the addition of the new stuff...?
Agreed. The N64 version was the best!!!The ones that have come out since really don't catch my interest as much as 64.
N64 battle, on the double deck map... we used to play it at work endlessly...
N64 kart ruled...
double dash was by far the best one the N64 one played it for sleepless nights but double dash LOVED IT it was finally tag team for me and my brothers idk probably you don't live with twelve people like i did
but im not so sure how the wii one will fair...
with MK N64, nintendo, and we'll all be fine.
I get a good game, you get a good profit.
That's right... I control how much money you make, so STEP IT UP!
I don't know why but it is. I remember the good old days where it takes about 3 minutes to do one lap on Rainbow Road lol.
Other than Baby Park, the other tracks take 5-10 minutes since they aren't just flat tracks and turns. Especially the new Rainbow Roads with loops and drops...I remember a 3 minute track being long in the old days, but nowadays that's not long at all, but I don't expect Mario Kart's tracks to be like Gran Turismo and turn into an endurance race.
Gamecube Version was the shortest. I would go as fast as I can to see how long it takes to finish. Anyways, Hopefully at least Mario Kart Wii brings back shortcuts and extra path. Not just linear tracks [SNES Version mmmm]
That one was horrid! HORRID I SAY! Gave me nightmares when I was but a child... And MK64 ruled the world, and still does, DD doesn't have the feeling in the battle.
yea the 64 mariokart was the best but man apparnetly this guy really hates change this whole article is bickering that games arent how they use to be i bet if they stayed the same hed be bickering about how all these games have remained the same for decades
Too many blue shells comming at me in the DS one I think... I'd like to stay in first place without that thing after me. Speaking of the DS one... Please for the love of god don't bring back the collectable kart parts to make faster karts or whatever it completely ruined the online for it. The first game I played this guy almost outlapped me in just a few seconds thats how fast his kart was. Just make it like Mario Kart 64 or the gba one where the stats are already set.
Double Dash was GREAT, ya'll are nuts. It added an much needed element of strategy to a title that otherwise would have been just a graphical overhaul of the same game. The person that wrote this article just didn't have anything to write before the deadline.
I hope the Wii version has something similar to double dash and doesn't recycle the one found on the DS which is just the same old thing with more courses. I'm hoping the new mario, mario kart, and smash brothers are good enough to convince me to buy a wii, cuz so far, wii's a paper weight (even more so than PS3).
