Review: 'Mario Kart 8' defies gravity to become the best 'Mario Kart' yet - Examiner

Having started 2014 off with Retro Studio’s Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Nintendo set the groundwork for what the year would signify Wii U owners. What is that, you ask? Quality fun. By turning to one of the company’s most popular franchises over the last twenty years, Nintendo will be able to further push this philosophy of entertainment with the highly anticipated release of Mario Kart 8 for Nintendo Wii U. Just as Super Mario 3D World took the best attributes of past 3D Mario titles, Mario Kart 8 expands and perfects the series’ core fundamentals while introducing new features to excite players. (Mario Kart 8, Wii U) 5/5

Mario Kart 8 looks to have BY FAR the best track selection of any Mario Kart game.

I can't find one track I'm not excited to race, including Retro tracks.

I can't say that about any other Mario Kart game.

MK7 had a solid selection, this is the top.

Ironically bully is notorious for being a Nintendo fanboy. Just ignore him.

Who are you talking to? The writer of the review? I don't think he is qualified.

No doubt this is the best looking and mario kart to date

This is looking to be the best next gen game so far this year.

I have to agree with that, compelted infamous second son which was great!

But Mario Kart 8 looks amazing. I don't want to buy a Wii U yet tho, i want Smash Bros out first so I can play the both of em an a new Zelda for sure.

Probably an xmas gift to myself this year. Since i only got the ps4 like a month ago.

Looks great, still seems a bit lazy that they watered down Battle mode and didn't include a mission mode like in MKDS though. You'd think they'd have gone all out on such a big title for the Wii U.

could always add it in a DLC down the road. Nothing is written in stone nowadays.

They spent majority of their time on tracks. Why do think Battle Mode was never mentioned til May. Because it was an afterthought.

Can't wait to play this with my wife. I think she might be more excited to pick this up than me.

Take my money Nintendo, take it and dont ask questions.
neogeo  +   67d ago
it's good to see WiiU get it's first must have game IMO
Neonridr  +   67d ago
3D World is definitely the other IMO.
deafdani  +   67d ago
Well, at least you said "in your opinion". In mine, Wii U has several must-have titles already.
randomass171  +   67d ago
Agreed. Pikmin, Wonderful 101 and Tropical Freeze just to name a few.
deafdani  +   67d ago
@randomass: W101 is my #1 game ever, period.

And Tropical Freeze is an awesome game that I enjoyed a lot despite feeling already a bit burnt of 2D platformers (there are way too many of them out there).

And I'm ecstatic about the free game promotion that comes with Mario Kart 8, because I don't have Pikmin 3. This will be my first Pikmin game, so I'm excited to play a new kind of Nintendo experience (for me). :D

You don't have an opinion. If don't know what it truly offers.

Other than a watered down battle mode and questionable roster (too many babies and metal), this game looks amazing.

An arena map editor would be epic as dlc.
