    jrunnoe's Mario Kart: Double Dash!! (GC)

    [March 7, 2008 01:11:24 AM]
    Mario Kart Double Dash is a very simple yet fun game. You can race or battle friends on a wide variety of courses and choose from many classic Mario characters to race with. Another feature which makes the game more entertaining is the ability of the players to pick up and use items to slow down enemies. Both the race and battle versions have multiple settings so you can play however you please. All in all it is a very fun game, the graphics and control are not the best, but the most important part of a game is how fun it is, and they got that part well.

    During the first session of play, I confirmed my idea that one of the best parts of Mario Kart Double Dash is how highly interactive it gets when there are four friends playing. It can get crazy when four competitive people are racing around outrageous courses. I believe this high interactivity is present because the creators of Double Dash did a good job making it so that skill level translates to the game very well. How good you are at the game determines how you do, not a lot of luck. Because of this, players seem to care more about the outcome and therefore put more into winning. This is when the best interactivity is found.

    Almost all of the challenge is provided by real opponents, not the console, making for a lot of conflict (in a good way). There are some obstacles and enemies on the courses, but they aren't the main source of challenge. There are some levels where you can easily fall off, and most levels have some sort of creature moving about, cluttering up the course, but thats about it.

    The battle mode is great for one on one. The battle modes include throwing bombs at your enemy, pop all of their balloons and a version of tag called shine thief. All of these battles are played on a course that you do not follow around like a track, but instead it is a level, in which you can move about independently. There is no finish line so the object of the game is totally different. However, it still manages to provide a lot of conflict.
