Mario Kart: Double Dash!! – Nintendo – Gamecube

Today, I thought I would review a great game that has been out for a long time but has maybe been missed because of newer versions….

Mario Kart: Double Dash is ANOTHER version of the classic Mario Kart. The only differences to this one is that it’s got two characters playing on one kart: one driving, one attacking. Sounds familiar….

Yes, the concept does sound alot like Crash Tag Team Racing, but this is one key difference. In Tag Team Racing, the second character has a unique weapon that fires whenever you want. You can even spin the weapon round 360 degrees and fire at people behind you. On Double Dash, there is no point in even having the second characters, as the game is focused, like all the others, on the driving. The second character just throws those same weapons you get in all the other games at the other players.  In the same way as you do on every other Mario Kart game.

However, in Multiplayer, the concept becomes to shine through. In Double Dash, two players can play in one kart to bring the others down together, OR play versus. Battle matches are brilliant fun here, with the fact that you can team up making it that much better. This is great for people with a few mates around.


The tracks are very great fun, with good graphics. However, even this is flawed. Firstly, there are only twelve tracks and 3 Grand Pix’s. Even Crash Team Racing on PS1 Has more than that! Secondly, Half the tracks can be played on the newer Mario Kart Ds and Wii versions! But this ga,e does have more characters to play as than Ds. A good compramise? I think not.

All in all, Double Dash is small comarfed to the other versions of Mario Kart, but has some good points. I would buy this if I was dying to play a Mario Kart game but didn’t have enough cash for the Wii version. Or you wanted a change and play as a tag team. Double Dash is a bit of a disapointment…
