Funny how MK8 will manage to outsell this despite only having 1/8 of the install base

For some reason, either this or Double Dash is my favorite Mario Kart. Just have a lot of great memories of playing this on an old, pink GBA, back when I was younger and could hardly afford any games.

Being the worst Mario Kart game is like being the ugliest Victoria's Secret model.

I don't know if this is common knowledge, but all the original tracks from Super Mario Kart are unlockable in this game. So it has 40 total tracks; more than any other MK.

This was fun but it was the worst Mario Kart still.
