Classic Mario Kart action is back once again, this time in a colorful, lightning-fast game that you can take anywhere. Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Wario, Yoshi, and Bowser are all tearing up the track, tossing Koopa Shells and laying banana peels along the way. Mario Kart: Super Circuit puts your driving skills to the test on 40 tracks, each littered with wild weapons and obstacles. Four players can compete in Mario Kart: Super Circuit using only one Game Pak. If each player has a copy of the game, bonus features and new modes of play become available. Expand

    It's all the fun of the original in the palm of your hand.

    Offers gamers a quality racing title with weapons, and the ability to keep players' attention for years.
  3. The graphics, sound, and gameplay all set benchmarks that other developers will attempt to surpass.
  4. One of the most ingenious games ever to come from the Nintendo stable.
  5. Fortunately, although the naming scheme has strayed from tradition, the gameplay is exactly what you expect of Mario Kart.
  6. Amazingly, the game exceeds both its Super NES and Nintendo 64 ancestors, making it a serious contender for the best kart-racer yet released.

    A balanced blend of "Super Mario Kart" and "Mario Kart 64." [Feb 2003, p.97]

    It's a lot like Super Mario Kart, which is a very goog thing for the number of people disappointed with Mario Kart 64.

    Pros
    +More characters than the original SNES version
    +Includes a whole new set of tracks along with the SNES version's tracks
    +Music has been remixed for the extra tracks
    +New modes such as Quick run which enables customization of races and vehicles and VS mode which allows multiplayer battles
    +Addition of backgrounds in race tracks adds a nice touch to the visuals

    Cons
    -Extra tracks missing obstacles makes it seem like it was a rushed idea and very empty in design
    -Due to the GBA sound card, most of the sounds seem a bit off and sometimes some voices do not work at all or some sounds do not work.
    -The lack of the feather ability makes some of the extra track shortcuts seem useless

The tracks are lame, the controls are messy and very hard to control, characters have nothing special because they suck and the music is simply horrible. Overall this game is a monstrosity to the gameboy and not even worth a rent. Expand
