Great game, I picked it up when it came out and still even have the box and instructions. New mario kart games today are great but the first one still has a charm and design to it the newer kart games don't have, heck you can even use Donkey Kong jr. this was before Donkey Kong country and Donkey Kong was still a villain in the nintendo universe I believe. Don't miss this great kart game.
The best part of Super Mario Kart for the SNES is the steering mechanic. Mastering turns and sliding is ADDICTIVE. You'll play this game for 20 minutes. Take a break...and then an hour later you will need more. It's a classic.
