Mario Kart 64 Review by: BestGamer24 - 9.1/10

Racing it's way to first! Mario Kart 64 Review
I used to own Mario Kart 64 on the Nintendo 64, and I played it a lot. Mario Kart 64 is one of my favorite games of all time (maybe top 15).
I have played the original Mario Kart on the SNES (I'll review that one.), and it's great as well. It was Mario Kart's first transition into 3D.
It paved the way for future Mario Kart games.
Mario Kart 64 was developed and published by Nintendo, and released December 14th, 1996 for the Nintendo 64. Mario Kart 64 is the Nintendo 64's second best-selling game with 9.87 million copies sold., only to be topped by Super Mario 64. With all that out of the way, time for the review.

GRAPHICS, 8: For early N64 titles, it's very good. The game features 2D items and sprites with 3D environments and tracks.
When at the player select screen, the eight characters have animations where they blink and have slight head movements.
When you select the player, they have another animation, which is usually a celebration taunt.
Before each race, you'll see Lakitu countdown to start the race.
While racing, if you're in 2nd or 3rd place, you may notice that racers  in front of you sort of pop-in if you get close. This could be because of  the N64's memory limit.
Each characters karts are different colors to represent them, such as Mario's kart being red, Luigi's blue, Peach's kart being pink, and Bowser's being orange. The only characters with the same color karts are Luigi and Yoshi. although Yoshi's kart is a lighter green.

Each track varies in size with the smallest being Moo Moo Farm (0:36 lap time), and the largest being Rainbow Road (2:00 lap time).
On the tracks, there are obstacles moving. On Luigi's Raceway, there's a Luigi air balloon that moves up and down on the track, and even has an item box attached to it. On Moo Moo Farm, there are moles that pop up out of the ground. On one of the best courses in the game. Toad's Turnpike, you race on a highway and have to avoid traffic. On Rainbow Road, there's two chain chomps. 
When you collect a item box, a small roulette wheel pops up and randomly selects a item.
When you use a item, it'll display a small effect. Usually a fire trial, or a smoke effect, sometimes both.
When you powerslide, a smoke effect appears. When you land a jump, a small text graphic saying "POMP" will appear. If you jump, it'll say "BOING!"
Each character has about 8 sprites, and these sprites are shown when the characters turn. They're pixelated on the edges, but that may also be because of the N64's memory limits.  The game looks very good, especially for the N64, so graphics get an eight.

SOUND, 10: Mario Kart 64 has a great soundtrack. I has about 20 songs. The best are Raceways, Bowser's Castle, and Rainbow Road.
The songs really add atmosphere the the game. When you start the game, Mario will say "Welcome to Mario Kart!".
 During the Lakitu countdowns, he's holding a bar full of light. Two green lights, and one blue. There will be three beeps. It's basically "Ready, Set, GO!" because the third beep is longer than the rest.
The sound effects are good too. Powersliding, bumping, jumping, advancing to the next lap and winning all have sounds. When the last lap comes, the songs is sped up, which really adds a sense of 'hurry!'.
When you select your character, they'll say something. Peach says "let's go!". Mario says "lets-a-go!". Luigi says "ho-ho!".
Also, after winning a race, they'll say something, too. Mario will say "I've got it!", while Luigi says "It's-a-me, Luigi! Number one!"
The sounds are really what made this game classic, so sound gets a ten.

ADDICITVENESS, 10: This is a game that is not only fun, but addictive. Trying to find all of the shortcuts are fun, as well as performing them.
Also, trying to win the cups on the harder difficulties is fun and challenging. The multiplayer modes, such as split-screen racing or the battle modes (four players only) are very fun too. I'd say it takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete each cup. I've easily played this game for 20+ hours. Addictiveness gets a ten.

STORY: There is no story to this game, but if I had to guess, Mario and his friends (and even Bowser), all take a day off to go kart racing.
The winner is awarded a gold medal, second place silver, and third place bronze. In the end, it's all just a fun day off for Mario and friends.

DEPTH, 7: There is plenty to do in this game. First off, there are 4 cups, and each cup has 4 different tracks., making a total of 16 tracks across 4 cups. There's the Mushroom cup, the Flower cup, the Star cup, and the Special cup. There are different trophies to get for winning cups on each difficulty. There's also shortcuts on almost every track, with the most famous being Wario Stadium and Rainbow Road.
There's also time trails, where you to get the best possible time on each track. There's no opponents, so this is where usually you experiment with the shortcuts or the track itself. The game features eight characters. Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario and Bowser are all playable. Technically, they all play the same, but their karts handle differently. Toad and Peach are lighter, while DK and Bowser are heavier.
Mario Kart 64 contains One, Two, Three and even Four-player modes. The One, Two, and Three player modes are all split-screen racing. These can be fun and chaotic. The Battle Mode is exclusive to the Four-Player mode. In Battle Mode, there are four courses to battle in.
All four players race in a mini bomb kart with three balloons on it. If a player is hit with a item, is bumped hard, or falls of the course, a balloon will fall off. If all balloons fall off, that player is eliminated. The last player with balloons attached will win. 
It's every man or himself and last man standing. It's extremely fun.
Apart from winning all cups on all difficulties, setting the best times on time trials, and playing the multiplayer modes, there's nothing else to do after that. For depth, Mario Kart 64 gets a seven.

DIFFICULTY, 5: Mario Kart 64 has three difficulties. 50 cc(easy), 100 cc(medium), and 150 cc(hard). On 50 cc, the computer racers are slower than the player, but there are always one or two that are almost as fast as the player. You can easily win all races on 50 cc.
Also, you get better items if you are behind.
On 100 cc, most computer racers go as fast or maybe a little faster that the player. If you're in front by a few turns, the computer will start rubber-banding (a very common issue found in racing games) and getting close. If you're behind, you'll mostly get good items, and obviously, it's harder to get first place.
On 150 cc, all computer racers go as fast or faster than the player. It's much harder to win, and if you're ahead, rubber-banding takes place.
The computer may get a blue shell if you're in first.
If you're behind you'll sometimes get good items.
150 cc is only recommend for really good players.
You can find a difficulty that isn't too easy, or too hard, so Difficulty gets a five.

OVERALL, 9.1: Mario Kart 64 is one of the best Mario Kart games. It was there series' first transition into 3D, although it isn't entirely 3D.
It's very enjoyable, fun, addictive, and easy to play. Overall Mario Kart 64 gets a 9.1 out of 10.
Thanks for reading this review, and until next review, bye!

Mario Kart 64 Game Description

Mario Kart 64 races eight familiar faces, including Mario, Bowser and Yoshi, on four progressively tougher four-track circuits. Wide curves and gentle banks mark the Mushroom Cup tracks. Your commute gets notably tougher on the Flower Cup, though. The player will have to dodge semis rumbling on Toad's Turnpike and bounding boulders on fogbound Choco Mountain! Star Cup tracks range from the icy surfaces of Sherbet Land to the lava lakes of Bowser's Castle. The true test of karting competence, though, comes on the four tracks in Special Cup. Zip through the dark caves and green hillsides of Donkey Kong's Jungle Parkway, cling to the sheer cliffs of Yoshi Valley and hustle over haunted Banshee Boardwalk before tackling the longest track in the game: neon-lit Rainbow Road.

The game offers two camera angles and three engine sizes: 50cc, 100cc and 150cc. You can gain even more speed by mastering the power slide technique or grabbing Super Star power-ups. Each kart has distinctive handling, acceleration and top speed capabilities. Light karts like Princess's smoothly steer through tight corners, but run the constant risk of getting flattened by heavy karts, like Donkey Kong's. Shells that you fire at rival racers, Bananas that make them skid out and Lightning Bolts that make them small and very slow are just a few of the game's unique power-ups.

Easter Eggs
Hidden Ending
To get a hidden ending in Mario Kart 64, place 4th place overall. This is a lot harder than it sounds because if you place 5th or lower in any one race, you must restart. The easiest way to place 4th overall is just to get 4th place in every race.
Contributed By: Mr Master2.
To get a boost at the start of the race and an early lead, do not hold the acceleration button before the race. Wait until after the last light flashes, then punch the gas. If you time it just right, you should get a boost that puts you into first place!

Course Ghosts
To get these ghosts, you must beat the times listed below.

Luigi Raceway 1'52''00
Mario Raceway 1'30''00
Royal Raceway 2'40''00

Don't slip!
If you slip on a banana, and are about to spin out, hit the brakes. You will stop (not spin out), a music note inside a balloon will appear next to your driver, and you will have saved yourself a lot of time.

Mario 64 Castle
Follow the yellow road in Royal Raceway, just after the big jump and to the right. That road will take you to the Mario 64 castle.

New title screen
To be awarded with a new title screen (and mirror courses) beat the game (get a gold trophy) on 50cc, 100cc and 150cc on Mushroom cup, Flower Cup, Star Cup and Special cup.

Shortcut on Kalimari Desert
On the first or second lap if you get a star you can do this. When you get to the 2nd Railroad tracks turn and go to the tunnel. Just before you enter the tunnel use your star, if you do this right you'll finish the lap and have a shorter 2nd or 3rd lap.
Shortcut on Rainbow Road
If you use a mushroom you can jump from the big hill just after start to a later part of the track on the left (right in mirror mode). This is very hard to do.
Shortcut on Yoshi Valley
Just after all the roads come to a point, you can jump to a lower track. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes very easy.
Shortcuts on Koopa Troopa Beach
#1 - The first shortcut is the sand bar on the right side on the archway. Just go over it and it's a shortcut (and an easy one at that)

#2 - Jump from the top of the ramp just after the archway, you need to have enough speed or you might not make it. A mushroom, star, or a last second power slide helps
Shortcuts on Royal Raceway
#1 - You can take a big shortcut if you jump across the river just after the first big turn. You need a mushroom or a star to do this (it is much harder if you use a star). Aim for the dark spot on the wall, if you do this right you can get towed up onto the big ramp.

#2 - In 150 cc you can jump to the left at the top of the big ramp and land on a bit of dirt near the finish line. If you do this right you will get towed to the finish line. This is very hard.
Shortcuts on Wario Stadium
#1 - When you first start the race, you can jump the wall at the top of the hills, you can shave almost half your time by doing this.

#2 - After the first shortcut you can jump back over the wall and land before the finish line, this is very hard to do. I myself have only done this 2 or 3 times, so don't say it is not posible, it is.

 I am saddened to see that an individual from Nintendo demanded the emulator for this game to be removed, as I did have joyous memories playing when Vizzed had more traffic.
yoshirulez! 10-10-16 - 05:29 PM
 Also wow! I never knew this had such a good soundtrack because I always played multiplayer and the music doesn't play if there's 3 or 4 people! Rainbow Road sounds heavenly!
yoshirulez! 10-10-16 - 05:26 PM
 Boy does this bring back memories. When I was like 6 I threw my controller and broke it x3
John23 06-14-16 - 05:29 PM
 Mario Kart 64 in mirror mode can be hard especially Toad's Turnpike when you're going against the traffic.
Game08 12-27-15 - 07:57 AM
 My first Mario Kart ever. I remember i was bad in 100cc and 150cc, but today i'm beat 150cc in first try.
HYPERviz 12-15-15 - 08:29 AM
 i got an bronze cup... yay?
cnw64 08-26-15 - 11:29 AM
 For example, I could come in first place on my end and the other player would tell you in the chat that you actually came in 8th place or ask " why you keep bumping against the walls ? "
cnw64 08-26-15 - 11:27 AM
 Great game to play but netplaying this game is horrible. It starts off working fine but eventually you disconnect with the other player while the game is still playing.
Springtrap 08-04-15 - 08:02 PM
 I love the Mario Kart series so much. I used to play the games for hours. So many good memories.
Ultimatone 07-27-15 - 10:08 PM
 So many hours spent playing this with friends. For a short time this was my favorite game.
pikachu369 05-25-15 - 04:10 AM
 Is it just me or has Wario been using the gameshark?
BritBrittErnie 03-25-15 - 08:28 PM
 the net play session does not work at all. you can pause the game for each other and start the game together and the game makes you play with computer players not your people in the game.
aroguespirit 02-25-15 - 02:17 AM
 Hey the Netplay session will not work for Loki612 and I. We can get it to load the game but it is not registering controls no matter what we do. After hitting the start game button it remains as start game and won't let us use commands.
Barathemos 01-03-15 - 06:55 PM
 Took a long time to learn the controls in this game, but still very fun
