Super Mario Kart

8/10

Super Mario Kart was a revolutionary game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was the first in what would become one of Nintendo’s best selling series. It features all your favorite characters from the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, Bowser, Yoshi, Toad, and Donkey Kong Jr. In this game players race to the finish line on many five lapped tracks that represent a level from past Mario games. The game features zany power-ups; some that are from Mario games, and some that are not. The game has 20 levels for players to race on split into four cups of five tracks. All tracks are rendered in mode 7 graphics (graphics that are 2D but are made to appear 3D). The tracks are very creative; most of them include gimmicks (Obstacles) throughout the track to prevent you from placing in first. Also, the Computer Characters are armed with items to prevent you from getting gold. The game is a perfect place for beginners to the series to start, but not the best if you are used to games Double Dash and later.
