Okay, today I will be reviewing mario kart 64 for the Nintendo 64, I always do have a great time racing on this game, it is always a lot of fun and I remember playing it a whole lot as a kid, it was great. Now then, on to the review!


Graphics: 8
Now then, for the graphics, this game is in 3d and I must say that it looks pretty nice and I think it is a great change from 2d in the previous mario kart game. It really adds depth and dimension to the game, whereas before it would be hard to make out walls, buildings or anything that you wouldn't be able to avoid crashing into because it was in 2D. So with it being 3D, I can race more effectively because I am able to see walls and other shapes clearly and avoid colliding with them. The graphics of this game are quite amazing, especially for N64, so that is why I scored them an 8, the characters, and places all look pretty good and there was clearly some effort put into the graphics of this game.


Sound: 9
I have to admit, a lot of the music in this game is really good and really catchy, my favorite is the rainbow road, a lot of people like the music for this course, I must say that the sound of this game is great, if not, one of its best features. The only complaint that I have about it is I think that the kart engines are really annoying, they are just a little annoying. Not that bad though, I just think that they are a little bit too loud, but overall, the sound of this game is still really good, so I scored it a 9 out of 10.


Addictiveness: 10
To be honest, it is just one of those games you never get tired of playing and it is always fun to play. I never really get bored of this game, it is always a lot of fun and I enjoy playing it alone, but it is even more fun to play with a few friends, it really makes it more exciting. There is a lot to do in this game, there are so many courses and there is a time trial and battle mode as well which are also fun to play. But, this is really just one of those games that you can never get enough of and it never gets old, so this game is a lot of fun and is very addicting, so it deserves a perfect 10 for addictiveness and re playability.


Story: N/A
This game doesn't have a story and I think it is best that way, it is all racing, there is no plot or story for this game which is perfectly fine, not every game needs a storyline to be great. Just enjoy racing! That's all that matters!


Depth: 7
There is lots to do in this game, you can race by yourself in a grand prix or you can do a time trial to get a fast time for a course or battle against the CPU players, there is also a versus mode where you can race against other computer players on a team. Personally though, I think it is always more fun to play with a friend and compete against them to see who is best! There are 3 difficulty levels, 50cc, 100cc, and 150cc each one is more difficult and challenging. So there is a lot to do in this game and there are also some useful items that can help you, like banana peels which can be used to make other racers slip on them and spin around, we also have the green shell which can be fired either forward or backward, either way it travels in a straight path hitting whoever is directly in front of it. There is also the red shell which can target another racer and follow them to hit them and they will spin around a few times, slowing them down, (it is one of the most useful items in my opinion), there is also spiny blue shell which will target first place and come down and hit them making them lose their items and perhaps 1st place. Then there is also the invincibility star, which obviously grants you invincibility for a short period of time, and you cannot be affected by anything, also another very good item, then there is triples of items, like green/ red shells, and also bananas, they have the same effect as before, but you can use them 3 times! Isn't that great? Then there is the fake item box which looks like a real one, what I do is put them in between real item boxes or I plant them directly in front of them so another racer gets a nice surprise! You can play as either Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Toad, Peach, Wario, Donkey Kong, or Bowser. There are 3 weight classes, lightweight: which have high acceleration, heavyweight which have high top speed and middleweight which have a balanced acceleration and top speed.
There are 4 cups, mushroom, flower, star and special cups and there is also an extra mode which lets you race on the courses in a flipped mirror mode.


Difficulty: 6
Honestly, this game can be a little challenging, the computers for 50cc and 100cc are pretty easy but they can be a little tricky in 150cc, but not too bad though. It can be a bit challenging or tricky at times, but it is not impossible. Control wise it can be difficult, especially if you are playing it on vizzed. If you play it a few times, you will immediately get the hang of it, so the difficulty of this game is not that high, the computers are fairly easy and a little tricky but nothing extreme. So overall, the game is a little challenging here and there, but it may vary for some people, to me though, its not extremely difficult, so I scored it a 6 which seems appropriate. The controls can be a little hard which is where most of the difficulty came in, but actually race wise, I think that 150cc is tricky but other than that it really isn't that hard.

Overall: 9.4
This game is great, everything about it, from the sound, graphics and addicting gameplay, this game is nothing but fun, this is a great mario kart game, and it is one of my favorites. All of the amazing features make a great game, it is just perfect. Nintendo did outstanding with this game, if you are a mario kart fan, I definitely recommend this game for you, it is simply amazing and addicting, so it is worth playing!


So, what did you think of my review? All comments and feedback are greatly appreciated, thanks!

Razor-987 : Great Review like always Razor. (I maybe never reply to your Reviews but I saw a lot of them )

The only thing that surprised me was that your Depth part was very long and the Sound part was a little short.
Most times if I see a Review, the Sound part is long and the Depth part short. But this is also good in my opinion. Other wise, Reviews will look a lot the same with length etc.

The only thing I can say now is, keep it up with making Reviews and never give up!
