Nintendo 64: Mario Kart 64

Todays article will be dedicated to Nintendo's arcade classic ...


... Mario Kart 64


It is early 1997, the N64 has not been out on the market that long, as me and my friends are craving for the sequel of the entertaining Super Mario Kart for Super Ninento consoles. Once again Mario and his friends promised us many hours of fun, chasing each other in multiplayer mode with new characters and "weapons".



And they kept their promise! In Mario Kart 64, four different types of game modes exist. Grand Prix, Time Trial, Versus - up to 4 human player can compete against computer opponents; and Battle Mode - human vs. human, you shoot off 3 balloons, which are tied to the Kart, with weapons like bananas or turtle shells.


Choosing your character wisely, also adds to the varying level of difficulty, represented by the engine size of your Kart, that can be either 50, 100 or 150 cc. Peach and Yoshi e.g. are limelight and will therefore accelerate more quickly than heavyweights such as Bowser, Wario or Donkey Kong. And of course Mario and Luigi are god-tiers and offer the best ballance!^^




Grab your controllers and have fun!
