5 ways to make Mario Kart even better

The Mario Kart franchise is one of the very best that Nintendo has right now. Every one of them has been excellent right through from the Super NES, N64, GBA, GameCube, DS and the Wii. While the Wii version did receive some criticism, mainly for not progressing the series as far as it should, the game is still great fun. The criticism however, was valid and here are five ideas on how to improve the next instalment.

I support the idea of bringing back the double cart feature. I so loved that. I think it would be great to play split-screen online with your friend one person controllers the cart and the other person could punch people when they get to close. I think there could be an option that allows if you want to play with the double cart feature so it is not to hard for people that only want to play by them selves. I also loved that you could have two items too. The other features are good too but to me the double dash feature is the best.

Let me just say.

Get rid of the Blue shell?Its only a bad thing if you suck,makes things more fun regardless of what end you're on.It should stay imo because its a spoiler and causes drama which equals more fun.Luck wins by the unskilled imo are worth it for everyone to have fun.Go play Gran Turismo if you want that "im a lap in front no one will touch me" give me more action keep the blue shell.

Less recycling on the tracks is actually something i find that is kinda alittle to much of.......i think old school tracks are good but you dont need an equal amount of new tracks to old tracks...give me more new.

Wiispeak/Motion+ is a must since they are now out.

Double kart riders...no thx the reason why it worked in the first place was because of item specific characters.......i like the method of what place your in making the difference between you getting a good item and bad.Id rather have the "everyone gets the same items" then 2 kart riders because it wouldnt make sense to have 2 players on a kart if there wasnt an advantage of doing that.

Say you get Mini Mario and Wario.......your not getting a bomb or chain chomp unless your 4th place or worse ....so you cant get any good items now because your character specific items are working against you.I have got mushrooms in first place in Wii version and those come in handy when you want to escape a blue shell that everyone thinks you cant dodge which you can.Now though since i have the MiniMario and Wario i cant get a mushroom because its toads item.Fiar items is the way to go....it alsom makes things more fun.

How about get rid of the INFURIATING rubberband AI man so annoying

I do think the Blue shell ruins the game a bit..

and product, think about what you said:

"Get rid of the Blue shell?Its only a bad thing if you suck"

umm the blue shell gets the first place person, so if you hate the blue shell, you are use to being in first place.

I myself think the balance of the blue shell was better in for example double dash,, but in the Wii version,, i could get hit by the blue shell 4 times in a match..

and, another reason for blue shell hate on the wii, is trying to do all the unlockables, and get a triple star rating for each course, and if you get the bad luck at the 4 track to get 4 damn blue shells, then game over.

That is very frustrating.

The blue shell should be a pick up for the 2nd or 3rd place person,

who in 8th place wants a blue shell ?

And the Double Dash Mechanics was a lot of fun!

it was the most advanced version of mario kart there was.

You could have two boxes, you can switch your characters around to take advantage of different specials and boxes.

Here is one great double dash team:

Toad Class , and Monkey class.

Use the toad special if your doing poor, get an infinite boost mushroom and pull yourself in first.

Then, when your in first, switch to a monkey, and you will get tons of giant bananas to drop while in first.

also, it was fun having to people on one kart.

not the most practice, but a lot of fun, and especially VS mode.

I think to many people bashed double dash, without really playing it.

and last point,

Bring back the powerslide, its so much fun to master this, and slide around, the wii version was to dumbed down

I have a golden wheel, 3 star ranking and have 9200(92 something i cant remember,although i could never get any better then that lol) in online vs when i stopped playing the game.Think about that......especially seeing as how i always use the wiiwheel.

" myself think the balance of the blue shell was better in for example double dash,, but in the Wii version,, i could get hit by the blue shell 4 times in a match.."

You do realize you can dodge the Blue shell right????

"and, another reason for blue shell hate on the wii, is trying to do all the unlockables, and get a triple star rating for each course, and if you get the bad luck at the 4 track to get 4 damn blue shells, then game over. "

The blue shell and rubberband AI makes the game a challenge you get rid of the blue shell/AI how much more casual do you want the game to be?

Right now i feel the Wii version was the hardest by far of any other the Mario Karts(although Kart 64 had some great AI for rubberbanding) and i like it better.I like a challenge and maybe its just me but its def. something lacking in most games this gen.Some people want a walk in the park and without the blue shell and AI thats exactly what it would be.

Double Dash was to casualized for me and i could literally beat the second place man by atleast half a lap everytime.That game was not hard and i feel it was the easiest of any Mario Kart.

"The blue shell should be a pick up for the 2nd or 3rd place person,

who in 8th place wants a blue shell ? "

Whats more fun for someone who sucks then to try and ruin it for the first place guy? lol

I had Double Dash and its my least favorite due to the 2 kart rule which means that everyone has certain specific items.It was to easy for that matter which was the part i didnt like more then anything.Although the levels were awesome.
