Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review - IGN

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still a gorgeous game and the overhauled Battle mode is a great reason to pick it up.

Mario Kart ftw, I've pre ordered for the battle mode, local multiplayer, online and I don't mind unlocking all the 150 and 200cc golds again ;)

The best racing game ever just got better. I'll have no problem getting hours out of it again especially because Battle mode is supposed to be bomb!

I can't wait to play this and Zelda.

Haven't played a MarioKart game since Double Dash. I can't imagine a kart game being more fun than that one.

It baffles me how they still haven't made a sequel to it. Two characters in one kart--it's brilliant

lol you get down votes for being excited about great games.

MVGeneral370d ago (Edited 370d ago )

Yeah best racing game for children, who like cartoon-arcade-racers, lol. This looks like it belongs on treehouse tv.

There's Racing Simulator, then Racing, then Wipeout, F Zero type of racing, then Kart Racing game.

Don't DDoS me for correcting op

Kart Racing is a sub-genre of racing, so "racing game" works.

Kun_ADR370d ago

So what is the difference? No matter what kind of racing game it is, you still in a control of a vehicle and try to win the race, is it not?

Somewhere deep down, n4g just died alittle based on these reviews.

Children's racing game*
Children can't grasp the concept of over steering, understeering, apex and just any sort of life like physics. Simple games for simple minds, I suppose.

This game is seriously fun and hours can pass while you race online! I like the new additions like being able to change your cart and racer while still in the lobby. I will get the Deluxe version for sure!

Great to see so many new IPs on the Switch already.


Thunder_G0d_Bane370d ago

Yeah cause Knack was so amazing when the PS4 launched! Just one month in.......


Applejack370d ago

Although I agree that the ps4 launch line-up wasn't the best, Knack wasn't as bad as many people said it was. I must be the only one looking forward to 2...

akurtz370d ago

The same year TLoU came out and could've been a launch title. Unlike the abandoned wii u.

I think you missed the word "new".

Mario Kart 8 on the Switch is a rerelease of Mario Kart 8 (the 8th for IP) for the WiiU. Knack was the first game in its series (read: first game in a new IP).

You need to learn the difference between a new game and a new IP.

Thunder_G0d_Bane370d ago

@Ron no son. Clearly you don't understand what I was saying. A new ip in the first month of a console launch doesn't mean anything great. Hence why I brought up knack.

A console needs time on the market to bring thriving new ip. Bloodborne didn't arrive til almost 2 years into the ps4s life. And as a new ip that's kinda stretching it as it's a reskin of demon souls sped up.

Kaneki-Ken370d ago

At least PS4 offer more game on launched date than Switch.

2pacalypsenow370d ago (Edited 370d ago )

At least Sony takes chances with new IP's unlike Nintendo using the same ones from the 80's, and Sony could of easily delayed The Last of Us and God of War 2 to release on new hardware but they care about their customers.

1-2-Switch is a new IP (although crappy)

Snipperclips is a fantastic new IP that's a blast to play. I'd be shocked if it didn't get a sequel in a couple years. Arms hits in two months.

Kun_ADR370d ago

I want a gazillion new ips for the switch after its got released more than one month.

TheColbertinator370d ago

Blue shell when I'm in second place 🤗

Fishy Fingers370d ago (Edited 370d ago )

Not many games that can be as enjoyable as MK.

I'll be encouraging my Switch owning friends to come over for a few drinks/races asap :D
