Mario Kart 8 review | Eurogamer

Video game players are familiar with the law of diminishing returns. Even as new entries in a series tirelessly improve upon their predecessors, our interest nevertheless wanes; with games, improved is somehow less exciting than new. Mario Kart 8 is a rare thing, then: the best entry in a series and the most exciting yet.

Nope I disagree if the multiplayer/voicechat were good then I would've agreed with you guys . 9 out of 10 is fair in my opinion

@bamillington this is what happens when you don't have a E3 press conference and you only preach to the choir with nintendo directs

I respect the game and it probably is a good game... but I just can't find this interesting. Looks like a kids game, as does most Nintendo's games. Maybe my inner child has already passed away.

EDIT. I actually enjoy Disney movies, specially Pixar movies. As for Mario Kart I would probably play it for 20-30 min, but most likely wouldn't waste my money purchasing the game and console to play it. I just find other games more interesting.

Youve got to get rid of your insecurities and have some fun. Its like Disney Movies, yes they are made for kids but ultimately they are enjoyable for grown ups too. You're no less a man because you enjoy games that look a bit cartoony. It also doesnt mean you should stop playing call of duty and titanfall, so long as you have fun.

The key to life is to keep that inner child at heart, and mature your mind.

BoneBone1227d ago

That's your personal taste and prerogative. Though quite why you would venture into a review thread about a game you have such little interest in, and exclaim to us all, your lack of interest.... I do not know!

Mario Kart is one of those games that covers every type of gamer - from kids to hardcore.

Seriously, if you can get past the graphics it's a ruthless racing game!

I've had some of the most fun-rage-inducing-last-corner- wins/loses/battles with friends while playing Mario Kart over the years - right back to the SNES version.

It's just too awesome.

Ok... so let's only allow people that are really interested (and agree) in something, comment on it. Better yet, let's only allow people that really love a game, review it... that way every single game have 10's in their reviews. If your review is not a 10, then you don't love the game enough to review it. /s

Would that make you happy?

Seriously! This is a free site and everyone should be allowed to comment in any topic they want, even if they find it interesting or not.

SweetDangos1227d ago

Let me guess, it's only a good game if it has tons of violence and shooting?

BullyMangler1227d ago

looks kiddy means it plays kiddy ?

maybe you need a little nap .

Did you even play the game?

-Foxtrot1227d ago (Edited 1227d ago )

Have to agree

I can't wait for this game but if there's problems with the multiplayer, then it's not a perfect 10/10 is it. Not to mention changing Battle Mode when it was totally unneeded.

deafdani1227d ago

If the person just doesn't care at all about Battle Mode, I can see how he/she would give the game a 10/10 regardless of it.

Same goes for someone that loves the Battle Mode most than anything else on the Mario Kart games. For that person, it would be completely valid to give the game a 6/10 score (for which a lot of people would give him/her shit, for sure).

After all, a review is an opinion, whether people like it or not. You can agree or disagree with it, of course, but in the end, your opinion may just not be the same as the reviewer's.

2 weeks to go. Seriously cannot wait.

Good-Smurf1227d ago

2 weeks,Wii U Basic and this game I'm so excited!

weekev151227d ago

And you get an extra game free of charge. :)

deafdani1227d ago

If you go for the extra game promotion with Club Nintendo, you probably will need an external hard drive for your basic Wii U, though.

Mentioning it just in case.

JaggedCarpet1227d ago

It's funny, Mario Kart is the only racing game I like. Been playing it since SNES.

GrandpaSnake1227d ago

this is probably the best arcade style racer ever made so far, i mean arcade racers arent really simulators, i rather play this than forza 5 i tell you what...
