"Let's be honest here: it's really difficult to screw up Mario Kart. The core mechanics of the game have achieved such perfection that Nintendo wouldn't dare mess with the controls, the physics, etc., and it shows in this new entry. If you've played a Mario Kart game before, you know how this one plays: excellently. This 3DS title does bring some other items to the table, though, and they certainly improve the package."
