Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

Used to do top tens some time back on my other forums, and I think this one?. Although they weren't the greatest. Anyways, bringing them back because I enjoy writing them for fun now. Only minor edits and revisions usually for this, usually just right them right there and then. I had to break this into two parts on my other forum due to my eyes bugging me, but this was written last week-ish. Also, throwing it all into one part on pretty much just a copy/paste here since a 7 game list doesn't really warrant a 2 parter. Also, may see some things off because it was a copy paste, and was written over 2 different days, 2 different threads before.

The following is the top 7 Mario kart games (my list) and quite a long read to go along with that(you know how I am :P). Hope you enjoy, and remember this is just my list. Feel free to comment by all means however.

-=Start original 2 posts=-

Figured I'd bring back my "top 10" type lists, just for fun, and to post more.

What I have to kick it all off is my top Mario Kart games. Top 7. How can they not all make the list? :P and yes, I have played them all.

The later in the post the games rank, the more I like them. Remember, I do like them all though.

First off (Just a note this one is likely a longer read than others):
( Click to show/hide )


Yes, this is indeed my least favourite installment into the series, and while that may drive some crazy for whatever reason, I'm certain we can all agree that it's not the best, no?

This is not to say I don't enjoy the game, but let me start off with the bad news first.

While Mario Kart Wii May have a lot to offer that's new, fresh and exciting (like bikes, but we'll get to that later). It's flaws hold it back, and no, I'm not talking about the fact that online was destroyed by hackers, that's kind of not a legitimate factor. I'm talking about the oh-so-apparent rubber band physics this game seems to have. Don't know what Rubber band physics are? (probably not, more of my own term). Basically the game gives a handicap more-so to people in last, or further in the rankings. Now some other Mario Kart games do this, perhaps all of them, and it can be okay to an extent, but the balance was thrown off in this game. My biggest problem was how whoever got in first place fast, and almost just stayed there because everyone else was caught in what I like to call the "Suction effect" with items, while first place only really got hit with a blue shell here and there. I'm aware that what I just said contradicts itself in a sense, but that's the thing, this game can be so random in how it goes. Blue shells spawn WAY MORE than they did in other games at the same time. That can be annoying, it really takes away a lot of (but not all) of the pure skill challenge in my opinion.

What's a big reason I think the balance was thrown off in this game? 12 Racers frankly. Think about it, 4 extra people in last, 4 more people than normal that can get blue shells, pow blocks, lightning bolts. It just became a little too chaotic for my liking.

To summarize my dislikes, it came down to 2 major flaws, over-use of rubber band physics, and 12 racers equals too much item chaos. Not to mention the fact I really never liked the lightning cloud or the pow block additions.

Onto the positives, I enjoyed the abundance of characters, addition of bikes, and the imaginative tracks. Alongside a solid battle mode

There's not really too much to explain in the positive remarks, since I felt the need to defend my standpoint on the negatives. So let's start with the bikes. Their bikes instead of karts. Mini-bikes more like, but they are pretty cool. They really are just more vehicles though, but that can't hurt. They can do wheelies, that's about all that's different, but they look cool, and I'll say again; more vehicles!

The track designs can be listed among some of the most imaginative, easily. Well, each game has cool tracks, but this is no exception. Among some of my favourites are Maple Raceway, Toad's Factory, Mushroom Gorge, and especially Koopa Cape. I do have to say that the Retro course lineup in this one is a bit weak in choice however, still fun, but there was a lot of times, times I felt they could have gone with a better track, although there are a few great ones in the mix.

Last but not least is the Battle mode, all I have to say, is done dnag near perfect! Loved it.


That one was a big read, almost counts as a review maybe, minus the editing. Ones from now on should be shorter hopefully, but I'm doing this as I go, so I don't really know.

Anyways, next up, beating the last one!
( Click to show/hide )


Mario Kart Super Circuit. I'll be honest here, I have played this one the least, so I apologize in advance for anything I may have off slightly. That said, I have played every track, and seen the whole game at least once.

Now it seems to me that each Mario Kart game seems to control differently in its own way. Some exceptions obviously, this game controls very similarly to Super Mario Kart, and in my mind is the spiritual successor to Super Mario Kart in a way. Not to mention it contains Super Mario Karts tracks as an unlockable, which is pretty cool.

Now this game was extremely fun, I think it may rank higher on my list one day once I play it more. It's also one of the most challenging games in the series just because of it's controls. Like any of the games, it's easier once you get the hang of the controls, the learning curve may just be longer on this one.

I'd still love this game were it just Super Circuit tracks, and I'll be honest when I say I thought Mario Kart DS was the first to do the Retro Cup thing, at least until I played Super Circuit Last year on 3ds (yay ambassador!) how wrong was I?

I don't really have too much to say on this one, especially in regards to flaws. My only concern is that the multiplayer is almost gone. It's there, yeah, but it's one of those annoying situations where you need two people with a physical copy of the game, and a link cable. Not worth it. I'll just pop in one of the console games, and play with 3 other friends. Always the simpler solution.

Overall, a great game however.


Next Best on the list of Best-i-ness:

( Click to show/hide )


Oh boy, if I didn't already get razzed for ranking Mario Kart Wii last on the list, this one will be... yeah haha. You know what, my list though, and keep in mind I enjoy all the games, so do not fret boys and girls.

Now, Mario Kart DS. A Fantastic masterpiece in Kart Racing awesomeness. It was the first time we could experience a legitimately 3d mario kart on a handheld... err... I don't mean super 3d like Mario Kart 7... You know what? First time we experienced a fully polygonal Mario Kart on a handheld, happy? :P

I know this one is what most people consider to be the absolute best Mario Kart there is to be had, but I just don't rank it that highly. I'm not denying its greatness at all, it is a fantastic game, no doubt about it.

First off Mario Kart DS offers us a plethora of new tracks and especially vehicles. So many vehicles to choose from, it's sickening... Sickeningly awesome! Many unlockables, and a story... mode... Yeah, could care less about story mode personally. You Race! You Win! End of Story! Anyways, alongside 4 all new cups, the DS mixes up the previous lineup of games from past installments in 4 more retro cups. This was a very high selling point for me. Genious idea, simply put.

Not too much bad to say about this game, except 2 minor things. First off is the selection of Retro courses, now I realize I shouldn't really complain about this too much since Nintendo really didn't have to make the retro cups, but I think certain courses were just kind of the really basic tracks of previous installments. I can understand this however since the retro cup was new. I do enjoy the courses involved at the same time, don't get me wrong on that. But GCN Luigi Circuit is pretty basic, just saying. Still fun though, so whatever. Not much of a complaint at all really.

Second complaint is again on multiplayer. It trumps Super Circuit because of the online, but still. Me + 3 friends on a console version is better in my opinion. To do that, that again requires more than one physical copy for each of us, not worth it, thanks.

Some of my favourite tracks include Tick Tock Clock, Airship Fortress, and Rainbow Road, along with some awesome classics like Choco Mountain.

Oh, one last thing. Mario Kart DS seems to be the only game to have gotten Vs. just right. So much customization, more choices than just this cup only, that cup only, or time trials. You can choose Random tracks out of all of them, choose each track, and just race until you're bored, or set a win limit. It even allowed teams. Why did none of the other games make this?


Lastly for today, my fourth favourite game in the franchise:
( Click to show/hide )


Let's Get some Classic up in here... Yeah, let's not talk like that.

Super Mario Kart. I'm aware I may hold some bias to this because, hey, first game I played. Oh well, my list, I rank it here.

Super Mario Kart. So classic, but not just classic, also just a good time every time I pick it up.

Like Super Mario Circuit however, the control in this game strays very far away from the rest, or I guess the sequels all stray far away from the original. Once you get the hang of the control though, it really is a fantastic installment.

Super Mario Kart offered a lot of surprise in the sense that it was the first game, no one really knew that you had to beat the Star cup on 100cc to unlock the Special Cup, of course it became pretty obvious that was necessary by the time Double dash swung around. It already felt like a complete game with a good amount of tracks without the special cup, but who can complain about more tracks? I sure can't! By the time Rainbow Road came around, it was so Surreal. Do I need to mention here, holy crap! The difficulty! The control in Super Mario kart was very drifty, even when you didn't drift, so it actually required braking unlike most installments. Rainbow Road had no walls, but my god, what a good level, and listen to that music:

[YOUTUBE]OSrYFhISoG4[/YOUTUBE]

Not to mention, look at that track, that flat, almost basic track was the final track in the game, isn't it amazing how such basic flat tracks can be better than some of today's 3d tracks jsut because of the quality of gameplay? I know I've said it a lot in the past, but graphics aren't everything people

Nothing to complain about for this one, nothing worth mentioning.

Battle mode is the last thing I have to talk about, it was so much fun in this game, I remember playing with my brother all the time. This was a mode where it was super awesome to get the feather, especially on the beach level you could jump in the pools to save yourself from your friend, or siblings. Definitely a well rounded battle mode, and I have to say I miss these early games where green shells kept bouncing until they hit something, it really raised the stakes as the game went on.


That's it for now guys. 3 Games left to include at a later date. Which one's my favourite? Mario Kart 7, Double Dash, or 64? I'll keep ya guessing for a while. :P For now, you can look at my top 7-4 of this great series.

Enjoy!

Part 2:

Now, onto the top 3, starting with number 3, ending with number 1.

Number 3:
( Click to show/hide )


Yeah, most of you saw this coming, didn't you? Some were surprised it even made the top 3, including myself until I played it.

I never would have thought this game would have the impact on me that it did. The newer installments just haven't done it for me in recent years, but when I decided to buy this game out of the blue on the drive to the lake, I couldn't put it down. Alright, that's a lie, I put it down, but I constantly came back throughout the next week to play 30 minutes of the game or so. This game is a great pick it up and play game, no doubt about it. I could pick it up now and have a blast. So yes, it does beat Mario Kart Wii, Super Mario Kart, Super Circuit, and DS, definitely.

What really sells this one for me? The tracks! I am strapped to find a mediocre track in this entire game, they are all so well made, very imaginative, and just plain beautiful! Even their Retro lineup is the finest to date in my opinion. I could list off all the great treasures in the retro lineup, but fact is it's hard to disagree with just about any of the tracks they gave a comeback. Of course there is 1 or 2 I would prefer be in the game that weren't, but what's that leave for Mario Kart WiiU... 8... reloaded... whatever they decide to call the next game.

In regards to tracks, I love the inclusion of the new types of tracks, that instead of being lapped, have 3 segments, and are just in reality one straight go. These are actually my favourites, Wuhu Loop, Maku Wahu, and Rainbow Road. All fantastic! Not to mention the many branching paths Maku Wahu and Wuhu Loop have to offer. My favourite retro course believe it or not is SNES Rainbow Road. I like that they actually brought back a rainbow Road track for the retro cup, and as basic as this one is, it's gloriously ported with some changes, but not too many. The music really sells it for me as well, just like on SNES.

I know I don't really play it much as of now, and I'm surprised I even bought it. I own about 200 or 300+ games, so I really cannot buying more ever really. I'm glad I bought this one though. I bet if I picked it up now, I'd enjoy it, but I have like 40 other games I could say that about right now, just too much to play, so little time :P Good game for drives though, definitely, and I have a lot of those every year.

I think 7 fixed a lot that I found wrong with Mario Kart Wii, since it's not overly chaotic, levels are better, it took the best levels from Mario Kart Wii and put them on 7 anyways. It also had a much better Rainbow Road, I always found Wii's to be really mediocre personally. So luck factor is the big thing, 7 takes more skill, and I personally find that 150cc is legitimately difficult.

One thing again that only Mario Kart DS seemed to get right was the Vs. customization, it's gone in this one again, want to do tracks in the order you want? Too bad, play time trials or online, or play 1 individual cup. Minor factor though, but it was nice to have on Mario Kart DS. Why don't they make Vs. good again?

All in all, Mario Kart 7 was, and is fantastic, I'd highly recommend it. I actually closely rank it to the next game on this list, but it just can't beat the next game on the list


From what I've seen over the years, and from when I've talked to people about it, I'd say Double Dash and Mario Kart 64 go neck and neck when it comes to people's favourites. So what's it going to be on my list? No one really knows yet, it's even playing grounds until you click that next spoiler!

#2
( Click to show/hide )


Question answered? Well read both parts and see what I ahve to say aobut the final 2.

Yes, Mario Kart 64 is not my favourite Mario Kart game, however, it ranks highly among the rest. It's such a superb game, but it just can't be #1.

Mario Kart 64! Where can I start with this one? This game can widely be considered to many as the Classic Mario kart itself, mostly due to the fact that the series picked up more on the N64. Personally I consider both Super Mario Kart, and Mario Kart 64 to be the classics of their Genre, while I played Super Mario Kart first, I find them both to be wildly original in their own way. I know I may just be judging the two mostly by graphical comparison, but it is quite a change. Controls are still quite similar to Super Mario Kart in a way. It just seems like an entirely new start almost into the series. Maybe it's just me? Yeah probably, Yes they are part of the same series, my point is they are both classics to me.

Mario Kart 64 put a lot of us in Awe at the time I'm sure Mario Racing in 3d? Amazing, on a good installment to the franchise too? Just beautiful. I believe the first time I played Mario Kart 64 was when it first came out, shortly after we got our N64. If I had to clock it down to the year, 1998? It may have been 1997 it was released, but whatever, we got our N64 in 1998, and rented Mario Kart 64 before anything else if I remember right. Yeah, yeah, I know, nostalgic sway on this one, but whatever. Telling a story here. Keep in mind, I hadn't played Mario 64, so this is the first time I saw Mario in 3d! (yeah, I know the racers in 64 still technically were panning 2d images. I couldn't tell the difference then). Really though, how skilled is a 3 or 4 year old at games? It didn't matter to me though, I could tell then it was an improvement, and leave it to a 3 or 4 year old to focus on the graphics, it was amazing.

Personal stories and nostalgia aside. I truly rank this second on my list. The levels were fantastic, and all weren't flat for once, and I'm sure there is no need to say, holy crap! Rainbow Road. If memory serves, Special cup was the first we played on GP.

The level design of this game is really quite good for it's time, and the closest I could say to a remotely mediocre level that it had was Luigi Circuit, but even that is a fantastic level to me, no freaking doubt! Personally, I think Yoshi's Valley was my favourite. At the time I had no idea the question mark positioning was limitations of the N64, I just thought it was the quirkiness of the level, and I liked it.

Another Big one for me was Battle mode, which I think I played a lot more of, my second oldest brother never really was much of a racing fan, so in Super Mario Kart, and Mario Kart 64, it was mostly Battle mode for us. Our all time favourite was Block fort, and one big reason why is we would make a rule that we would almost play a "floor is lava type of game" where we weren't allowed to attack each other, and instead had to fire all the green shells we could find down to the lowest level. We'd then try to physically knock each other down to the floor below since it basically meant death with Green shells flying all over the place down there. Come to think of it now, it's still a version of battle mode that I'd love to play today (yay child imagination!). Another reason I ask why green shells have to explode on simply 3 hits against walls today? I always loved the idea of making levels more dangerous by getting more and more green shells. Rainbow Road is a good example of a race track that it worked on too.

I'm going on and on, but there really is a lot good to say about this game, I loved all battle tracks frankly, except big donut. Was kind of meh.

One complaint I do have, and I don't really think it's legitimate, is the limitations that brought the game down. What's the best way to play a mario kart game? with 4 people of course. What's it do to compensate for 4 human players? Removes the music, and the AI... Not a huge deal but still. Kind of wish 4 player grand prix was possible or battle mode with AI (although AI probably wouldn't play along with the floor is lava :P)

Mario Kart 64, all in all is fantastic. Simply put.


Well, that leaves only one.

The best of the best:
( Click to show/hide )


What's that you say? Double kart racers was a gimmick? Sure, a dang fine one though! Besides, just put everyone in their own kart controlling 2 characters, bam! problem solved.

I'm not going to go on here about how it was a close race for first, because it really wasn't. While great, the other games are still miles behind this installment in my honest opinion. The race was really between slots 2-4. It may have taken me year to finally getting around to playing Double Dash, but when I did, I already had felt its greatness. I got it for my thirteenth birthday I think? Not positive, but anyways.

I could not put this game down the first night I got it. My oldest brother has always gotten me the greatest gifts, I mean THPS3, Timesplitters: Future Perfect, and then this? Just to name a few. He played it with me the whole first night as well.

The first thing I remember doing after a regular GP was unlocking the Special cup (something 64 left out for some reason, unlocking it that is). I missed dinner for this game (gift was a day late), but whatever, it was worth it.

Just leaving stories short this time :P

First off the Double gimmick, personally, I liked it, it let you throw in a new element of different weight class cars, special attacks for each duo, and dare I say an actual realistic approach in a way (yeah, I know, Mario Kart, not very realistic). I'm talking about how the person on the back of the car physically throw all items, that was just so cool to me. Made a lot more sense than it just shooting out of your car, I mean, what is that?

As for the handling with two people itself, it felt a lot different, but in a good way. It seemed like it took a lot more skill to me personally, because it was a lot easier to fall off in areas without knowing how. The only area that comes to mind that still gives me trouble is the narrow bridge in Dino Dino Jungle (when you get the choice of 3 bridges). I know Rainbow Road gives a lot of people trouble, and I know when playing with friends, they all fall off a minimum of 3 times. I personally never got it. They think I'm crazy for never falling off unless hit by something at the wrong moment. I tell them to just learn the control. That is a factor for me, the control is the best in the series in my opinion, it works so well and blends the drifting perfectly into it.

As for the track design. None better, yeah I know, Baby Park, what is that? I'll tell you if you stop playing the crummy DS incarnation of it. Baby park was meant to be a chaotic small level with 7 laps, and I like it. I know that may contradict what I said about Mario Kart wii being too chaotic, but when playing with friends, you want the chaos for a change, and this is the good kind of chaos if that makes any sense. Not Pow blocks or anything stupid. The bots just don't get how to play this level either so that doesn't factor in much. Two of the best levels in the game, heck, in the entire series lay in this game. Wario Colosseum, and Rainbow Road. Every new installment of Mario Kart I wonder why Wario Colosseum is never included in the retro cup, and now that a Rainbow road's are being included in the retro cup, why not include the Gamecube Rainbow Road? I'm waiting Nintendo, they better be in the next game... please.

Just look at these levels and understand their awesomeness:

[YOUTUBE]WU_XGgIVKzs[/YOUTUBE]
[YOUTUBE]UyauheAhAAE[/YOUTUBE]

I may explain more on these two levels in a later, thread, we'll see. I'm sure they need no explanation though.

I know how I said DS had the best way of just playing tracks in a vs. style, and it does, however there is a close second. Another feature I wish they had in all the games. The All-track cup. What this is, is a fifth unlockable GP cup that allows you to play all 16 of the games track in an almost random order (always starts with Luigi Circuit, and ends with Rainbow Road. Nice touch actually).

Battle mode tracks are the low point in this game, they all are kind of just okay with the exception of Luigi's Mansion of course. I don't know how they thought Block city was in any way a good successor to Block Fort, because it isn't. Battle mode is still fun of course, but the best way to play it is with Bob-omb blast, a great game mode that I also wonder why it didn't make a return... Basically all the items are bob-ombs. Sound great? It is, bob-omb barage all your friends, just amazing. First to get 4 hits wins, if you get hit with a point, someone steals your point, simple concept, very fun. Right type of chaos again.

That's all I really have to say on Double Dash. It wins out of all the Mario Karts in my opinion, and deserves more attention.


That's it for this top 7 folks. Expect more on something else at a later date, feel free to comment.

-=End original 2 posts=-

Hope you enjoyed, I know most people will just skim this, and some crazy (and awesome) people will read the whole thing. Hope you enjoyed regardless.

Feel free to comment.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

Mario Kart Wii was ruined by Nintendo rewarding terrible players. It's ok offline single player but playing online is a complete joke and an embarrassment to gaming.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

Blue shells aren't the problem. The problem is penalizing people for playing well and rewarding people who are barely able to stay on the course. This causes people in first to be bombarded with twenty different items and drop to last place at the end of a race. Broken.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

Yep, Mario Kart Wii could have been a lot better, but it is broken, agreed. As I explained earlier. Sure there's a number of things I didn't even mention that wreck it. Battle mode was fun in Wii though.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

The game is not broken. I'm an above average player, and I consistently place near the top. We used to play a lot back in college, 4 player on the 64, I had one buddy who we could not beat. If we played all 16 courses he'd win all but a few of them. Yes the game does have some heavy slingshot stuff going on, but better players will still beat mediocre players.

On that note, the slingshoting is 90% of the reason the game is fun. It would not be fun to play without it, in fact the game would downright suck. In my opinion, all racing games, aside from the hardcore simulators, should have some sort of catch-up.

Missing the point, the Wii version is beyond just helping people catch up.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

If the AI in any game is given ant ability to catch up, that abuse it. It's not uncommon to be hit by the Rainbow Assault, which is 1 green shell, 1 red, lightning, star, blueshell, and a bullet bill, all in a row.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

I've never played the Wii version on multiplayer, if what you say is true then it's been rectified for the 3DS game.

And that is part of why the game is fun, could you imagine the hootin and hollering that would come out of a room of a group of guys playing if that happened?

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

I think the part I like most about the Mario Kart series is the utter randomness and item spawn. Without all the craziness is would just seem like a Nintendo themed Cruisin' USA.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

I think we can all agree that the Blue Shell has no place in the game. It's only purpose is to frustrate those who are racing well, since it offers little to no benefit to whoever gets it.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

I've played every mario kart game. Only in MK Wii did I get harshly penalized for being in first place. Having several items hit me all at once and drop me down to last place, on many occasions, is bad game design. Defend it if you want but that's just a simple fact.

It's not bad game design, you just don't like the game.

The game is designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities, are you not mature enough to understand that? I think you are, but I'll explain just incase:

Not every game needs to be fair, they are games, they come in a wide variety. Mario Kart is meant to be a wacky clusterboink of insanity. If someone can't change their "hardcore" gaming mindset, and just sit back and have some fun, then they shouldn't play Mario Kart. People need to be able to see the fun in all aspects of what the game offers, whether you are in first place or last place. You are supposed to smile ear to ear when you get hit by a blue shell at the finish line, not get angry.

TLDR: Don't take it so seriously and you might enjoy it more.

Mario Kart to me isn't about trying to be the best. If you can't laugh about getting knocked out of first to last right before the finish line maybe you should be playing a different arcade racer.

Taking Mario Kart seriously is like making Mario Party competitive, it's just kind of lame.

Re: Best of the Mario Kart Series (Top 7) Cam's list

Oh I don't like the game huh? Sure whatever you say.

It's not about being hardcore it's about it being fun. I don't find it fun to be punished for doing well. I don't remember any other MK game being as ridiculous and we all enjoyed them as kids. How come kids now need to have a virtual nuke to catch up?

It's not like it's just me making this criticism. I've heard this same complaint countless times. Seems like they fixed this issue somewhat for the 3DS version. If there was nothing wrong then why did they do that? Are kids unable to deal with it on 3DS?
