It doesn't suck per se, but it's no Mario Kart. It's more like a pseudo-sequel to Namco's Race On with mascots.

Played the first one in London early in September this year...it was surprisingly fun, considering all the negative feedback I'd heard about it. Sure, it was no 'proper' MK, but I wasn't exactly expecting the home console experience in arcade format!

Looking forward to this. Perhaps both can be bundled or merged for an early Wii game, who knows?

MK GP's movement was okay, the problems were:

A) Has 50 billion weapons. 6 which are useful.
B) Courses are boring. Almost all of them consist of ovals, and has very little scenery moving.
C) The "Pay $1 for the next course" thing goes against everything that Mario Kart stands for. A Single Race match is just lame.

Donkey Konga was fun, Mario Baseball had its moments and the flying sections of SFA weren't bad at all (no Ace Combat, I admit, but still decent).

I know what you mean, though. We need a full Ridge Racer, Tekken and/or Soul Calibur on Wii.

And the traffic levels. And DK Mountain. And the Bowser level. And Dry Dry Desert. Some of the best levels in the series come from DD.

My biggest gripe with AGP1 was the size of the tracks. It never really felt like mario kart at all.

Hopefully AGP2 will remedy that inequity. I doubt it, though.

Actually, if Mario kart used the nunchuk, and I could slide and shit like usual, but then throw weapons in different directions by whipping the controller in said direction, that would be awesome.

Nobody plays it at the arcade I frequent. Everybody wanted it before release, but it wasn't really that fun. My girlfriend played it for the first time on Friday and said she would rather stick to the N64 version. And I've played it maybe 2 times over the last 6 months.

Plus the price is another issue. You have to pay to continue, even if you win. Something about GP is just boring. Maybe the track design, I don't know. The camera thing is cute at least, but playing the actual game has never been fun to me.

MKDD is a great game providing you have 4 or more people to play with..(for more than 4 people the loser hands over his pad for the next race to the person waiting)

It's still played here with my friends on a weekly basis, it's kinda like a sport now, as everyone playing has fully mastered the game. We have played all the Mario Kart console games this way since the Snes.

Whilst Super Mario Kart was always my personal favourite, I have to say Double Dash is the better game, due to the craziness on frantic level for 4 people and the banter that results from it...

People that say it's crap just must not have anyone to play with...

i would think mk:ds would be the one for the snes purists at this point, since it seems to follow that pretty closely.

While Double Dash wasn't my favorite Mario Kart (it certainly didn't get as much play time from me as the others), I will say that the the co-op mode in Double Dash was awesome with friends.

Kreed - We are in complete agreement.

Also, Mario Kart Arcade GP 1 was utterly TERRIBLE. SO very bland and the controls were all wrong. The best bit were the 'ending challenges' where you had to do something odd like run over 15 Koopa troopers in a time limit or bounce a chomp chomp down the course... within a time limit.

Otherwise, it was caca. No high hopes for GP2. They have it in a local arcade and it's not been well-received so far from what few have told me.

QFMFT!

Namco is the most worthless big name developer that Nintendo's used this gen for outsourcing their franchises. Enough, already.

ok, but i still dig baby park.

DS version wins. I was beginning to think no game would beat the original on the SNES. But DS did it.

The only problem with DS is that it doesn't have Ghost Valley :(.

Double Dash was awesome and Mario Kart GP wasn't bad at all, just different. DD was different as well, and the difference added more variety and longevity to the game. I would pick it over the others if I had a party going.

The only double dash disappointment for me was battle mode, the GP itself was awesomeness, especially two players coop pilot/co-pilot.

Blue shells blow though.
