This catched my eye on steamfriends Mario Kart Source. It looks fun, but it seems like a straight copy from the Nintendo versions.

Oh Lord is that ugly.

Can't really tell how well it plays from the video, but when you look at other mods on Source, especially fellow N64 throwback Goldeneye: Source, this just looks laughable.

looks nice, but the camera seems to move too slow while your turning... (can't see what's directly in front of you)

Turning seems kind of slow, or maybe it's just me.

I'd like to try it though

It's not just you - the turning seems really slow. From the looks of the video, trying to make a good turn means a lot of stop-and-go.

In short, DO NOT WANT!

Double Dash's maps were horrid IMO. I prefer SNES and Mario Kart 64's.

Now here's a couple of things I noticed:

1. In general it seems surprisingly close to the original game in terms of speed and handling. I definitely got vibes of Mario Kart 64 when seeing the characters fall off ledges, steer around corners and so forth (and not just for the obvious reasons wither, you smartarses.)

2. When a character hits you the player seems to bumble about much longer than they did in the original game.

3. No selectable Bowser at the start makes me VERY VERY ANGRY!

Looks fun! However the character models look.. weird. I mean, wtf is this?

When I read Mario Kart Source, I thought it was the source code for Mario Kart.

Slow handling. Although I dunno if I would waste time playing it.
