This game is perhaps the best game in the Mario Kart franchise! It offers new experiences for both returning players and new players of the franchise. I highly recommend this game.... and also, there's a way to avoid blue shells now :PReport this review
This game is fantastic. it has the best graphics of any mariokart and the tracks feel long and replayable. The unlocks for vehicles are a great new twist and are brilliant for making bizarre and funny combinations. I would reccomend this game to anyone.Report this review
To say Mario Kart 8 is the penultimate kart racer of this generation is an understatement. Mario Kart 8 mixes vibrant, colorful graphics with tight controls and a beautifully orchestrated soundtrack to bring you a racing experience that cannot be topped. The main goal of this title is obviously to best your rivals at a fast paced race, but along the way you'll encounter imaginative items, beautiful courses and a great set of recognizable Mario characters. With added bonuses such as "Mario Kart TV", which lets you edit and share your races onto the MiiVerse community and YouTube, boredom will not strike easily. The rule book has been thrown out the window in this edition as the new "anti-gravity" mechanic reinvents the genre as bumping into fellow racers is now encouraged and is rewarded with a boost, as well as traversing the underside of the course and wherever you see fit. Along with underwater and flying sections which return from Mario Kart 7, this game truly is a re-imagining of the traditional Mario Kart formula. I give this game five stars- To not pick up this game along with a Wii U would be an error on your part, it's the reason to buy a Wii U and what Wii U owners have long been waiting for. Well done, Nintendo. -Rosstifer.Report this review
The new Mario Kart 8 for Wii U is absolutely breath-taking! The stunning HD graphics that the Wii U can provide really make this Mario Kart stand out from the rest. It also creates a family friendly vibe for the people playing the game making it easy to include friends and other family members in the action-packed racing fun! The new game mechanic, "Anti-Gravity", is very innovative for a racing game. This feature allows for driving on the walls of the track, while maintaining the tense and exciting Mario Kart feeling.Report this review
