Mario Kart 8 Review [Capsule Computers]

Dustin Spencer from Capsule Computers writes: "Nintendo have come a long way during the past 30 years. Mario has also come a long way as well, starting as a simple mascot from a platformer and evolving into something more special, with loads of spin-offs that each take the same universe and dive into other genres. Back in 1992, Nintendo strapped the plumber into the drivers seat for Super Mario Kart, and racing titles were never the same. These days, a Mario Kart installment typically sells more than the standard platformers we see from the franchise, which makes the Wii U’s Mario Kart 8 one of the most important releases in history. With new visuals, a blend of old and new elements, and the same gameplay attached, does Mario Kart 8 set the mark for the console, or is this racer one to pass up?"

Watch Dogs (PS4) due tomorrow, once Mario Kart 8 arrives 2 days later...forget about it! Watch Dogs will in all likelihood disappoint me and leave me jaded (sadly) - I want so much for it to defy expectations, a first party Nintendo game from 1 of its key franchisees is as close to a sure thing as you can get in this industry.

@higgins78 I hope it doesn't but I guess it's a gamble since the review embargo is on until the day of.I would recommend not opening it until you see the first 10 reviews if it doesn't look good send it back.

That will be difficult. I'm off all day tomorrow (today now) and Wednesday, I have little else on so when it (Watch Dogs) arrives in the mail this morning - as expected - I will be like a kid at Christmas...albeit a very dubious one. Should my worst fears be realised - not that the game is terrible but something a lot, lot worse, its average, I'll trade it in next week for a credit voucher.
