Mario Kart Double Dash!! (GCN) Review
Finally we get our hands on the next installment in Nintendo's Mario Kart series, but is it any good? Read on.
To be honest after reading IGN's review, I wasn't expecting much from this game. Plus I've never actually played any other Mario Kart games at all, so I just didn't know what to expect.
Graphics - 9/10
Sound - 8/10
Gameplay - 8/10
Firstly, there are only 16 tracks. You start with 12 and the rest are unlocked via Grand Prix mode. This may sound like alot, but because most of the stages are very short, they get boring rather quickly. There is some fun in searching out shortcuts though.
My second issue is items. Collecting them is easy enough, the item you get however is completely random, or so you would think. There is a 92% chance you will get a green shell from the Item boxes, and that kinda gets annoying.
The last problem is the characters. what is the point of the 2 man team thing? It serves no real purpose at all. Characters are the same anyway, it's only the karts that matter here. So having the double team thing seems like a wasted opportunity. Other than these 2 minor things though, the gameplay is excellent.
Replayability - 8/10
Overall - 9/10
