Michael Schumacher World Tour Kart 2004 is a kart simulation. With keyboard, steering wheel or gamepad the player races against his opponents and makes kart-typical sliding maneuvers. The playing options are what is expected from such games: training (complete with a ghost of the own best time), single races, multiplayer and a championship with four, five or eight races.
The player can create his own driver and customize the colour of his kart and clothes. The game features 17 varied courses, both indoor and outdoor, and three different kart types.
