Mario Kart: Double Dash

The Mushroom Kingdom just got a whole lot more hectic as Mario and company double up for furious kart racing, but this time they're driving two-seaters!

Pick a partner and race through wild courses as you compete in tough circuits or duke it out with power-ups and items in battle arenas.

Features

  • Double the fun! Each kart holds two racers that can switch places at any time. Choose from a huge cast of favorites, like: Luigi, Peach, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Wario and many more, and pair them up in any combination. The character in front handles the driving duties, while the character in the rear doles out damage with six different items plus eight special items that only specific characters can use.
  • Reach new levels of frenzy with four-player mayhem, as each player controls two characters as they speed through Mushroom Kingdom courses.
  • Place first in racing circuits to open up progressively more difficult circuits. Of course, you can have multiplayer races on any open courses or battle in arenas.
  • Link the game with eight other players using a broadband adapter and race each other side-by-side using multiple game systems and multiple televisions!

I hope they come out with a Mario Kart game for the Wii, Double Dash was the best.

Double dash was the best MK game ever. Regardless of what people said about how 2 people was dumb, it added more chaos.

Who in the world said 2 people playing each kart was dumb? I thought it was a great idea ever since I heard of the game.

Online gaming on the Wii would be awesome.

Yeah it's the best game. I think they look like jello though. How they move that is. Other than that I wish they had a game on the Wii about mario kart.

A guy I know named Chris Allen told me about something he did on the initials thing in the game and he unlocked Pikachu & Togepi. I think that's a lie?

I have the big book about mkdd and it has to be a lie.

I didn't know they had a big book about everything about MKDD.

Very fun game to play! All Mario Kart games I've played are good in their own ways. This Mario Kart, the graphics are AMAZING, the 2 characters in a kart makes it pretty fun, music is fun to listen to. Just so sexy. The only bad thing is, ANYONE can win. If anyone never played before and picked up the controller, they have a chance to beat you. There's not much skill in this game, still fun though.

Toad said:

Easy to do when you play all your life. Once I get into it I can't stop playing.

Captain Jamesman said:

I have mastered the game! I've unlocked EVERYTHING.

I unlocked everything too. It's easy and fun too.

Stewie Griffin said:

I hope next time they have a game like this, Brian & I will be playable. If not, I'll brainwash Nintendo into making me the star of the game.

Peter Griffin said:

That's right Stewie you just keep dreaming. Lois and I will be playable. If not, then I'll bring out the Ball Crusher and Nintendo's balls!

Avatar

Stewie Griffin said:

Back off Fat man, or else I'll release the rabbid red shirted pervert on Lois!

Avatar

Peter Griffin said:

Touch one hand on Lois and I'll put a pitchfork up Brian's ass!

Avatar

Wii Freak said:

Stewie, Peter's your dad and you should be nice. Besides what about you killing Lois?

Avatar

Stewie Griffin said:

I'm only doing this because Captain Jamesman wants to know me & the others more. And as for you fat man (shoots Peter's knee). Now you don't stand a chance at this game if you were in it. Let's go Brian!

Captain Jamesman said:

Do you even know what Stewie meant by "Rabbid Red Shirted Pervert"?

Andrew Rudloff said:

Luigi/Mario/Green Fire is the best combination!

Wii Freak said:

My favorite is the 3 red koopa shells!

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

My favorite combo is Mario/Yoshi/Party Kart.

Avatar

Peter Griffin said:

*laughs at Stewie* Well guess what, bucko? I had a bulletproof kneepad on. Oh, and guess what else? #throws five daggers at Captain Jamesman and shoots Stewie eye. Haha! Now you'll never be as good as me in this game. Let's do this Lois.

Avatar

Wii Freak said:

OK Peter but you forgot about ME! HA HA I'm still better than anybody in this game!

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Missed me punk! You're going to pay for that! *gets Bowser to kidnap Lois* let's see if you can get Lois back from Bowser. And by the way, *puts his gloves on and forcibly puts a bomb in peter's mouth and forces him to swallow it* you have 24 Hours to rescue Lois from Bowser on World 8 Level 4. Think you can do it Griffin? I WILL AVENGE YOU STEWIE GRIFFIN!

This game poll is turning into a weird episode of Family Guy.

My favorite combo is Bowser/Mario in the Wario/Waluigi car.

Toad said:

You guys are crazy! (in a good way) I couldn't stop laughing! Anyway it's a great game. I wish up to 4 players could play Grand Prix with computers. Also it's Toadette's first game yay.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

That's really some combo. Two Enemies working together under one roof, on their pimp-mobile. Kidding! That's a cool combo. Then I also like Yoshi/Diddy/Party Kart. What can I say? I love the party kart!

Avatar

Toad said:

The party kart is great. I say my favorite is the Para wing. Cool name!

Wii Freak said:

The Gold car is slow.

ghostrider brawler said:

Awesome game, oh my god I cannot put it down but getting king boo and petey the piranha is so frustrating. I eat the rubber of the analog stick on the controller but it's worth it. I think they should have separate specials though like king boo could send an army of boos and petey could eat the other players and (huff and puff) lakutai the koopa on that cloud which is kind of the main character because you see him everywhere should be playable that would be cool.

Mario kart is coming for the Wii 2008 with online play and a steering wheel.

Second reason (Melee being the first) why I bought the Gamecube. Same goes with the Wii.

Favorite combo? Both Yoshi and Birdo in the waluigi racer! Eggs= special items= star in first place.

I don't have all the karts, but I will.

Zach said:

I think the best combo is Para Koopa and a toad/toadette in the toad car Shells for defense, mushrooms for speed.

WiiNinja said:

Just think of the possibilities of Wi-fi multiplayer when Mario Kart (Wii) comes out.

Rich said:

Does anyone know if you can use the Wii to play the online function on Mario Kart Double Dash? Cheers.

They will have mario kart Wii. Anyway, this was the best mario kart game ever. However, I'm too used to the courses now. I can't play it. The courses never change.

Is it possible to play this game on the Wii with the classic controller? I bought this and 4 (yes, 4) freakin' classic controllers and can't get this sucker to run. Still enjoying MK64 with my friends though.

I am having trouble playing this game on Wii. It says it can't read the disc and to check my gamecube manual. This is the 2nd disc this happened with. Help me please.

TruBlu said:

Hey Wii for wife, try cleaning the disc tray, and make sure the Mario Kart disc is clean. Mario Kart works on my Wii, so don't worry.

There are way too few tracks in this game.

I love this game, but I lost it and I was wondering if I play it on the Wii, will it be able to go online?

Lay-Z Boy said:

Why do people hate this one?! I love the courses and the bob-omb battles.

Ok I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old. They are very new to the gaming world. We got the Wii and now I don't know what games to get them. MKdd or MK Wii. We have one wheel, can it be used to play mkdd? I'm so lost.
