Mario Kart 8 Review | Hardcore Gamer

Needless to say, fans have been eager to get their hands on Mario Kart 8. Even if you put aside the Wii U’s desperate need for games, the series’ last console entry was riddled with balance issues and ultimately felt watered down.

Anyone else sick of getting coins while last, when the person in second/third place gets red shells, golden mushrooms, etc!!??

Ya, I think there are too many coins involved. Not a huge fan of the coins. It doesn't feel like you're getting anything special when you pick them up.

I hate getting them as a block item. Those should have been reserved for weapons only.

GOTY so far. Normally Mario Kart games can not hold me with the single player, and until recently they were not online (and MK Wii was sort of bad). So in the past they mostly remained in the drawer unless friends came over, but I cannot put this game down. Not only does the online hold up well compared to online games on other systems, but the amount of collectables and stuff makes single player very enjoyable.
