Bullet Point Review: Mario Kart Double Dash (GC)

What I liked:

Tracks - Although there needs to be more of them, the tracks presented here are really really nice.

Double Up- I really like the ability to have two people per kart. That means I'm able to have another person carrying more powerups/goodies.


What I didn't like:

Cheating - Once you get to the last 2 cups in the 150cc class races, the cheating from the A.I. is just out of control. They'll hit you with anything they have. I can't count the amount of times I was heading down the last stretch in first place only to be bombarded by red/green/Bowsher shells, lighting bolts, etc. It gets a little ridiculous after a while.

Short - You could probably finish this Mario Kart in one sitting.


Summary:

Mario Kart Double Dash pales in comparison to the awesomeness that is Mario Kart DS, but what is here is fine. The only things I'd change is the intensity of the cheating A.I. and I'd make it alot longer.

Overall I'd give Mario Kart Double Dash (GC) a 3 out of 5.

Sounds fair, I would give it a 3,5 but whatever, a great review man.

The early demos of Double Dash frightened old players by being another Gamecube title to take an old franchise in a very new direction. What came out, however was one of the most exciting multiplayer experiences of the generation.The standard options are available, ofcourse, Gran Prix, Battle, Time Attack. ...

    Great Multiplayer. 0

    Anyone who has played Mario Kart will either tell you that its stupid and pointless, or that its one of the best multi-player experiences available. I'm one of those people that think its an amazing multi-player gaming series, and Double Dash is no exception.The graphics, while not the best on the Gamecube, are still pretty good in my opinion, and much better than they need to be for a game like this where the sole purpose is chaos and fun. Its also a huge step up from Mario Kart 64's graphics, ...
