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.
  2. 100
    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.
  7. A balanced blend of "Super Mario Kart" and "Mario Kart 64." [Feb 2003, p.97]

The control takes some time to get used to, but it's pretty good when you do. The tracks are fun and there are some great ideas. It's a barrel full of fun and while it is one of the hardest Mario Kart games, it's definitely a great one. Expand
