Mario Kart 8 first impressions: beautiful, but by the numbers | EDGE

EDGE: "The Mario Kart series’ recent return to form on 3DS raised hopes for its debut on Wii U, but going by its showing at E3, there’s little to get really excited about. It’s all perfectly serviceable, of course, but the limited demo – which kept us tethered to the slowest 50cc karts – made it difficult to judge the finer qualities of the game’s handling model. It all clips along at a healthy 60fps, though, and is as vibrant, chunky and beautiful as you’d hope from the first ever HD Mario Kart." (Mario Kart 8, Wii U)

Yeah, tell me about it. Looks a lot better than the previous iterations if you ask me.

Well Mario Kart is one of the least milked Nintendo franchises. There's only one per console release so it's not as bad. It's just the fact that it's "Mario".

Mario Kart has always been a great family game-- i have only one game for the wii u-- so it will be a good purchase for me and the daughter to play together.

LOL_WUT.

Did u really expect Pixar graphics?

I think for a Kart game it looks nextgen. tbh. Has a nice look about it.
RustedMan  +   429d ago
yeah, I expected something akin to a Pixar film.
or "Wreck It Ralph" at least.

We are still at the "Hoodwinked" stage right now with the Wii U. :)

I'm amazed if you really think that tbh.

The wii u is ok.

But power wise, it struggles. CPU is poor. Gpu is slightly better in places then this gen.

What's the deal with Edge these days? Did Nintendo's cheque get lost in the post?
