    Perhaps Trent forgot inflation when he gave a 6.4.

    If there is any video game that Gamespot should seriously consider giving a regrade, Mario Kart 64 is undeniably one of them. I understand each and every criticism our fellow Gamespot reviewer, Trent, gave to this game, ... Read Full Review

    Fun, but could be better!

    I love this game for my N64 and I still play it every now and then when I feel like it but I hate how it's 2-D! Wasn't N64 supposed to be one of the first systems where every game was meant to be 3-D?! I like the game a... Read Full Review

    I don't understand how this game can get such a low rating of 6.2! Okay, I understand that looking or the 'technical' game play of a racing games it’s not the best, but that not what Mario Kart 64 is all about. Firstl... Read Full Review

    This game has a definite spot in my heart. this is the first video game I ever owned so I might be a little biased.

    The Plot: I don’t remember if their was a plot to the story, but who cares. If there was a plot it was probably as interesting as any other Mario plot. I was about 6 or 7 when I first played this and, you know what, I ha... Read Full Review

    This game is awesome. The first time I played this game was over at my cousin's house. I thought it was cool.

    About a year after, I went on ebay and bought it at a pretty cheap price.When I got it, it was just as cool as I remembered. This game has pretty easy controls that you can learn right away. You can play the game wit... Read Full Review

    This game would be an awesome game if Nintendo could make it longer.

    Just like in the SNES, Mario Kart came to the Nintendo 64 too. This game has a lot of features that makes this game good. The graphics looks really good. Anyone who played Super Mario 64 will find it familiar but still i... Read Full Review

    Bad port of graphics but otherwise just as fun as it used to be.

    After downloading Mario Kart 64, the first thing I noticed was that the title screen graphics looked pretty ugly. After hoping it was just the title screen I was a bit disappointed to find that it applied to the rest of ... Read Full Review
