GameOnDaily reviews Mario's karting debut on the Wii U.
Nice one James. Our highest review score so it better be good! I haven't played it myself yet but I have heard great things. I just need some time to play it.
I can't personally give it 10/10 with the battle mode being completely broken as it is (seriously, they rushed it, so NO arena maps which breaks the whole mode) but the track designs are amazing, the OST is amazing and so are the graphics. I still don't think it's an evolution though. I would've wished the Wii U had proper triggers as ZR and ZL buttons, so we could control the speed more precisely, but at least the new additions to boosting and items makes up for it. Some tracks made me and my friend outright say "wooooow!" while playing it, which is something unusual since we're both long-time gamers and have a slight apathy for all the "been there" and "Done that's". Definitely a solid 8 or 9 in my book. I still wish I hadn't seen every map after 4 hours though.
