Super Mario Kart review

Review date unknown

Jason Venter says: "You’ll soon find that much of your success in Super Mario Kart comes from the items you obtain and the way you use them.

Each item gathered has multiple uses, making strategy just as important as luck. And of course, there’s no substitute for good racing."

goldenvortex says: "I dislike racing games, most of the time. They seem to be bland and repetitive, going around a track, lap after lap until you finish, then after that it feels like ''Oh wow!

ratking says: "Now for this review to be honestly fair, you must understand where I am coming from. I was not one of the ones who had experience Super Mario Kart when it was first released, nor before I had even played it's sequel. I only got it around three months ago when I got my Super Nintendo, seeing I wanted the original Mario Kart. I was kinda dissapointed with the experience but that is understandable. I will try to understand this game when it was originally released, but really I guess I can't. Howev..."

retro says: "By 1992, Mario was tired and needed a long vacation. He had conquered the world of video games with engaging, classic platformers that all have his name on them. Super Mario Bros. had saved video games in thousands of people's eyes; Super Mario Bros. 2 was strange, yet classic nonetheless; Super Mario Bros. 3 became the biggest selling video game in history, and as many would argue, the best game ever up to this point. Finally, Super Mario World showed the world that ..."
