Super Mario KArt | 8.5

This is the best non-serious racing game for SNES! Pick from eight racers, Mario, Luigi, Toad, Bowser, Koopa, Donkey Kong, Yoshi and the Princess. Then pick your difficulty and one of three circuits that you want to race on. Each circuit has five racetracks, each is severely detailed from start to finish! The ghost houses have ghosts everywhere, Bowser's castle has thromps to come down and crush you! You can pick up items along the way, like mushrooms that give you a huge boost of speed, stars, which make you invisible, and shells that you fire at the other racers! Throughout the game you can even add to the fun by earning extra difficulties and an extra circuits with five new and cool racetracks like star road. The only downfall is that the game is quite dated,

I can understand in some ways why some people seem to think I despise "good clean fun", because of my bad reviews for a lot of kids games. Nintendo classics like this are reasons why I got into games in the first place and why people who have this perception of me are not right. This game has a lot of fun tracks that are noticeably absent from its successor, some characters not featured as racers in Mario Kart 64 like Koopa Troopa and Donkey Kong JR, multiplayer is lots of fun just like its follow-up, and it has endless replay value. Though it may not quite be as good as its successor it still is way to much fun for even the most M-rated infatuated gamer to resist.
