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]

The controls, while better thanThis is a fun game with some unique track themes and good music for the GBA, it has a plethora of issues. The controls, while better than Super Mario Kart, aren't very good, the item distribution is unbalanced, and the rubber banding has returned from Mario Kart 64. And the biggest problem, this game copies nearly everything from Mario Kart 64, and that includes items. There's barely any originality in these aspects. But despite this, Mario Kart: Super Circuit is still a decent game. Definitely try it out if you want a game to play on the Game Boy Advance. Expand

    Actualizacion! Le bajo de un 7 a 6 porque el modo 150 cc arruina el juego.
