EuroGamer: "Mario Kart 8's gambit is anti-gravity tracks - a trick borrowed from Nintendo's other great racing series while it lays dormant - and previously there have been two-man karts, motion controls and mid-air gliding.
But when it comes to rounding up what Mario Kart 8 really offers beyond this new gambit, well, it's difficult to say. It's also difficult to justify that it needs to. People play Mario Kart because it's Mario Kart. If you're after that again here, well, Nintendo isn't about to start disappointing you."
