Mario Kart 64 (Virtual Console) Review

Growing up playing with this game ever since I was a kid...I never got bored of it...the game always had a special place in my heart...unfortunately I lost my Mario Kart 64 copy for the N64 and I also was stuck on the next gen gaming....but now with technologies like virtual console, xbla, psn, etc. I can play these classics again and this here is a classic Ive havent played in ages.

Mostly everything just feels like it did when I was 6 or 7...the graphics, sound, voices, etc. all felt the same and the fun factor hasnt stopped either.

I would wish however, that Nintendo would release an N64 controller for these games, since Im more familiar with their buttons than the gamecube's...but all in all this is still fun. This definitely is a for sure buy if you are getting anything for the virtual console.
