I don't understand it. Super Circuit has 40 tracks, the most of any Mario Kart game, all the classic characters and items, and it really fun. Is it just like Super Mario Bros 2 and Zelda II, where it isn't cool to admit that you like it?

It looks nice and sounds nice, but the controls need a lot of work.

Controls perfectly fine for me, pretty close to the SNES version. It's the second best Kart as far as I'm concerned.

I think it's far superior to Mario Kart Wii & Double Dash. If it was on a home console I think people would rank it more highly.

The controls work fine for me as well. I don't know if being on a handheld hurts it, since Mario Kart DS is considered great by pretty much everyone.

Great game, except for the part where they brought the coins back :(

And no Koopa. :(

In a way exhausting
we're problem solving
Drink 'til she's attractive
We're PARTYNAUSEOUS
Talking 'bout diplomatic
I brought my plastic
Making that peace attractive
We're PARTYNAUSEOUS

I guess I am one of the few who likes the coins. It would have been nice if Koopa was in it though, I totally agree.

I like the coins, but I would also have liked to have seen the feather, especially as you could unlock all the SNES tracks.

@CowLaunch I agree, the feather would have been awesome! I wish it would have been included in all of the Mario Kart games.

Are you sure that people hate Mario Kart Super Circuit? I don't know anybody who hates it...I personally love the game, one of the best GBA games out there.

I think he read the comments at the Super Mario Kart page.

I have read a lot of praise as well as hate for this game. I was just curious if people here liked it. It appears everyone who has left a comment so far likes it just fine.

I like coins as well. It adds another layer to the game without being complicated. Koopa Troopa and the feather were certainly missed. I am continually baffled with each sequel that does not bring back the feather.

Being on the GBA hurts it because GBA was not as multi-player friendly as DS since you had to buy a link cable that most did not have and there were fewer GBA owners than DS owners. MKDS had the bonus of being Nintendo's flagship Wi-Fi game, so everyone bought it when it came out. Mario Kart shines brightest in multi-player. I only had the chance to play someone in it once, and even then he didn't own the game, so we were limited to far fewer courses, no battle mode, and the other player had to be Yoshi.

The DS version, however, I've played online tons of times and even had numerous local parties with 8 or 12 players (I forgot the max, but I remember there being too many of us to all play at once). But if the GBA version had been released on DS instead, I think most would have enjoyed it more. As it stands, most people rank it pretty lowly in the series from what I've seen.

People hate Super Circuit? Seriously? That's my favorite game in the entire series.

I like Super Circuit, but Adam is right, playing it on multiplayer was a rare thing, which made me play it less than any other MK. I recall playing it with 4 people once, no one had the game of course, so we all had to play as different colored Yoshis.
Still, as an on-the-go racing game, I prefer it to MKDS.

I never had it, but now that I have Mario Kart DS I see no reason to get it. The feather's stupid and coins are useless.

You need to collect 100 coins in each circuit in order to unlock the tracks from Super Mario Kart, and there isn't a feather in Super Circuit.
