Mario Kart: Super Circuit contains multiple courses of four tracks for the single player mode. You will have to win five cups, and the enemy AI becomes much tougher as you progress through the game. In other words, Mario Kart Super Circuit is the perfect example of a well-crafted game that has a little bit of extra effort put into it. For GBA fans, this game is quite nostalgic and is still one of the best Mario Kart games to date.
