Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Basic Game Info

Much like the other games in the Mario Kart series, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is a game about racing--beating your opponents, whether human or computer-generated, at zooming around any track with any number of obstacles facing you. But this game, unlike any of the others, throws another little monkey wrench into the process: this time, you control not one, but two characters. The driver of your kart directs the action; the passenger can collect items and use them. And you can switch them at any time, so that you get a good balance.

With 9 "default" pairs of characters and many different abilities/special items represented, MK:DD!! gives you both customization and challenge. It's no longer just a racing game, but a bit of strategy thrown in, too!
