You can’t have a new Nintendo Console without a Mario Kart game, and when Nintendo was making the Wii version of the series, they definitely did not disappoint. Building on the fast-paced, but still arcade-styled racing gameplay, and the online functionality that was introduced in Mario Kart DS; Mario Kart Wii definitely brought the Mario Kart game to a whole new level.

Mario Kart Wii is probably my favorite Mario Kart game. I just have a lot of history with it (especially with the guys and gals of CrystalStarStudio and the Blargg Pit community), and just brought a lot to the table when it released, in the form of time trial leaderboards, solid & accessible online, and just the classic Mario Kart gameplay that always come with a solid Mario Kart title. So safe to say, I was looking forward to coming back to this game for the playthrough. Let’s get ready to race once again!

Mario Kart had never been on handheld before, and with the rising popularity of the Game Boy Advance, a handheld installment was definitely not a shot in the dark. Although it would lack some of the more desirable features of a Mario Kart game, being on the Game Boy Advance and all, it still provided the basics of what makes Mario Kart…well…Mario Kart!

I had enjoyed going through the Mario Kart games in order, but that meant after Mario Kart 64, I would need to start taking on Super Circuit next. Although it is my least favorite game of the entire series, I can’t say too much negative about this game, because it was very limited on what it could accomplish as a Mario Kart game. The Game Boy Advance was cool and all, but it just couldn’t provide the core excellent multiplayer that we’ve come to love from the series.
