Double Dash didn't win any awards at the time, but in retrospect it's one of my favorite Mario Kart titles, if only for the unique two racers-one kart mechanic.

Each character had a unique special power-up, and you could choose two racers per car. That meant you could tailor your character choices to your preferred play style and even keep an item in reserve, adding a few layers of strategy to the Mario Kart formula.
