In case you’re wondering how much Nintendo changed one of the best-loved multiplayer racing games for its first appearance on the ‘Cube: They didn’t. Not significantly, anyway: Just as they did back in the ol’ N64 days, Mario & Co. must complete racing circuits in pursuit of trophies, locked vehicles, and bragging rights. The biggest improvement is that there are now two players in each kart, effectively doubling the power-ups and attacks. Of course, the game really shines in multiplayer competition. Still, while we quickly blazed through in solo mode, we could never get enough of watching new character Baby Mario whine at the end of a race.
