A super solid entry that only holds up a little
25 June 2019 | by OlicosmicSee all my reviews

As someone who absolutely adores everything about Mario Kart, I knew that I had to give this game a shot. And after doing so, I am very impressed with what this game accomplished. The visuals are very detailed and colorful, the gameplay is really good for a GBA game, the music is amazing, the overall presentation is top notch, the amount of tracks in this game is staggering, and the roster is carried over from MK64. It's insane how much was crammed into a GBA game of all things, as this has just as much, if not more content than 2 of the games prior, especially in 2001. However, while that all sounds well and good, this game is also one that time has not been kind to, as, despite it being a technical marvel at the time, it's just not that fun anymore. It's still fun, don't get me wrong, but it's hard to call it a blast to play compared to literally every other MK game afterwards. Hell, even MK64 is more fun than this. To be fair, that's probably due to that game having more varied tracks, which brings me to my next complaint. The tracks in this game are meh. Some of them do have their own themes, which is great, but all of them are flat just like the tracks in Super Mario Kart. The track design itself isn't too memorable either, which can be a bit of a shame. None of them are bad, as they're still serviceable. But, none of them come close to any of the great tracks to MK64. What is cool, however, is that all of SMK's tracks come back here, and thanks to this games somewhat better gameplay, this is, in my opinion, the most definitive way to play these courses. Overall, this game is a very interesting part of Nintendo history. On one hand, this is a huge technical achievement that works great as a Mario Kart on it's own. On the other, thanks to the meh tracks, dated feel, and lack of anything memorable or extremely fun, this is one of the least essential games in the series. I still recommend this game to those who are curious as to how impressive and awesome a MK game can be on somewhat old hardware, but for anyone who wants a truly great handheld MK game, it's much more recommended to play MK: DS or MK7, as they fix every problem in this game and then some. Don't get me wrong. This is still a super solid entry, especially for it's time. But, it only holds up a little in the grand scheme of things, making it a pretty good, but not great experience nowadays.
