People love Mario Kart 64 and I admit that I'm one of them. There's something about that particular iteration of the series that just gets so many things right, from track design to music to character models to the race gameplay itself. Later games in the series are special in their own ways, but I know for me Mario Kart 64 is Mario Kart. The new Mario Kart DS is a lot like it, and it's quickly becoming my favorite game in the series. It'll be interesting to see how well (or not) it ages over the years.
And speaking of Mario Kart DS, now that the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection has launched, what do you think of it? Is online play on the Nintendo DS everything you thought it'd be? Are the player match-ups fair and fun? Is the network reliable? Or do you think Nintendo has a lot to learn about online gaming? Vote in the poll and leave your comments below.
