The Mushroom Kingdom just got a whole lot more hectic as Mario and friends double up for furious kart racing. This time around, each kart holds two racers that can switch places at any time, so choose from a huge cast of favorites and pair them up any way you see fit. The character in front handles the driving duties, while the character in the rear doles out damage with six normal items and eight special items that only specific characters can use. It's multiplayer mayhem at its most intense!
Comments about Nintendo Mario Kart Double Dash!!:
I was looking forward to buying this game on the Gamecube because we have Mario Kart on the Nintendo 64 and it was one of the most addicting and fun games for my whole family. We were all disappointed with the Gamecube version. The controls were complicated and the race courses were not that fun. The vehicles were not as fun to drive. Even the weapons that you throw at your opponents were not as good as the Nintendo 64 version. With the original version, my family would play for a couple of hours a day. My wife would even stay up and try to finish some course and get the best times. Double Dash didn't hold the same appeal. My kids play it very sporadically and my wife and I don't play it at all.
I hope they bring Diddy Kong Racing to the Gamecube and that they do a better job than they did for Double Dash.
