GameDaily writes: "Nintendo's Mario Kart franchise has always been a fun alternative to simulation heavy racers like Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport. The SNES original (released in 1992) was a revelation, with its slick Mode-7 visuals and multiplayer support. With future sequels, the publisher retained the first game's charm while incorporating additional characters and tracks to create enjoyable experiences anyone can get into. Besides, it's fun competing against different Nintendo characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser and Toad. On that note, it's even more entertaining to hit them with red turtle shells or send them spinning out of control with a well-placed banana peel."
