My very first N64 game. Played it to death.
It takes everything good from Mario Kart 64 and makes it even better. Also the graphics were pretty impressive for the time, and the triple vehicle gimmick gives the game a lot of variety.


It was kind of clunky and weird but I like that it tried some new stuff. Boss fights in a kart racer. Planes. Boats. Wild.


For me, coming back to this game 20 years later was NOT like riding a bicycle. I got whooped. Good memories though


In the top 3 of best Kart Racers ever. FANTASTIC track design, charming and nice visuals, VERY good controls in all 3 vehicle options, fun modes for multiplayer AND single-player, catchy music... this game has it all. :D a joy to go back to every once in a while.
