WiiWii.tv writes "Mein Gott! We've just returned from visiting the Nintendo HQ in Frankfurt, Germany, and after playing Mario Kart Wii that's the only possible reaction we could have. Simply put, the game's AMAZING, and you, my friends, are going to LOVE it.
After the jump is a list of our early impressions, written in no particular order of preference (except the last one, which is about the Wii Wheel). There's a lot of lovely stuff packed into this game, and we wanted to get it all written down before it was lost in a haze of jetlag and complimentary booze.
If you're looking for a one-sentence summary, however, then look no further. We'd say that Nintendo had been inspired by freewheeling insanity of Motorstorm on the PS3, but they've made a better game in the process. Game is released here in Europe on April 11th, one day after its launch in Japan."
