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

    [January 18, 2007 02:21:49 PM]
    My second session of Mario Kart Double Dash!! was just as fun as the first. When it comes to racing in this game, I feel a need to improve my time each race. The game design of this game is amazing by the way. The designers really paid close attention to detail. It's great how the background and foreground images are so detailed no matter what direction you are facing or driving, forwards, backwards, left or right. One level I especially enjoyed was Toad's Playpen. I know the design for this game is not very complex because the track is simply a typical oval shaped race track with no twist and turns. However, that's what I liked about it so much. It was fun playing this game because the question mark boxes are always where they should be and for some reason, this level is harder for me to win first place in. What i love about this level is how the question mark boxes are placed right as you enter a turn and then during the long stretch to the next turn, you have time to attack the other players in front of you.

    Another level I played this time was the desert level. It's fun trying to get better at this level and learning new tricks to overcome certain obstacles. In particular, i hate the tornados and the big giant whirlpool of sand in the middle of the leve. I hated the tornados because they often pop up during the windy turns just past the checkpoint. I didn't like the turns because they were difficult to get used to and if you don't turn well enough and end up off the track, your speed is slowed down greatly. I also didn't like the giant whirlpool thing because the space of track around the whirlpool was very small. Just like any part of the track, if you drive off the track on the dirt, your speed will slow down. So, at first, i found myself being passed up by other players around these particular areas of the track. The visuals though are great and make it seem as if i am really traveling across a track built in the middle of a desert. The tuble weed that passed across the screen from time to time were a cool addition.

    Well well, the game i played this week is a favorite of mine as dumb as it may sound to some. i played Mario Kart Double Dash!! And the exclamation points are in the title of the game, I'm not just trying to sound excited. So, the game play was fun. I played with a few friends and the experience was much more enjoyable. I've tried playing by myself which was fun but it seemed like the only reason to play alone would be to improve my skills. When my housemates joined me, my objectives in the game changed slightly. Now I wasn't just trying to get first in a race, but I was also trying to ruin my friends' chances of winning just for the hell of it. I would target my friends as oppose to the other computer operated players. I chose Baby Mario and Yoshi for a few reasons. I chose Baby Mario because during other game play's if found that he was very easy to maneuver. I also chose him because I really love his special, which is the use of a giant ball and chain that is animated to act like a dog on a leash. The ball is the head of the "Chomp chomp" (as it is called) and the chain is the leash. Well, what's so cool about the "Chomp chomp" is that when you use him, he pulls you really fast while steering you at the same time and knocking out every other player in your way. It's really fun, but the only problem I've had with the "chomp chomp" is that when his use is finished, you suddenly need to steer yourself again, which could easily throw you off.

    I chose Yoshi because his special is also really cool. I like it because it's a shell follows the player in front of you and hits him automatically without aiming. Its also cool, cuz inside the shell there's three weapons that bust out when the shell cracks on the other player. It was really cool playing because when I played against my friends there was always this need to get beat someone or get back at someone for doing something to you. It's really exciting to play. I had a lot of fun playing at first but towards the end of my session i found myself becoming really tired of playing and I really was happy to stop. It was fun and exciting and there was a lot of fun things to do while playing but it seems like it would very hard for me to play this gave for an extended period of time. I think 30 to 45 minutes is enough time to get tired of this game. But what really made me want to play another game was losing to my friends. It made me want to say "Come on, let's play another game" because I really want to get back at them for beating me. I think the best part of this game was that it makes me so competitive.
