Diehard GameFAN: Mario Kart 7 Review

DHGF: Mario Kart 7 is an enjoyable game that really doesn’t strive to be anything else, and while it’s likely going to disappoint fans looking for something a little fresher, it’s a fine, if unoriginal, experience. There are still lots of modes to play with, the game still looks and sounds fantastic, and the game is still easy for new players and old hands to pick up and work with. The game offers online and offline play options of all kinds as well as a large variety of unlockables to discover and collect, and there are enough new mechanics to the game to freshen the game up a little bit for the player who’s seen it all and loves it all quite a bit. The game carries over the frustration of Mario Kart Wii’s aerial segments (or, more specifically, the “getting hit with power-ups in the middle of” aspect) with the otherwise unspectacular glider elements, and otherwise the game adds nothing of note to the series, leaving the game less exciting than its predecessors at best and wholly unoriginal at worst. If you’re not looking for anything but more Mario Kart, Mario Kart 7 fits the bill nicely and will fill your need with no trouble, but for anyone eagerly anticipating innovation in the series, you can go back to your Double Dash! because you sure won’t find it here. (3DS, Mario Kart 7) -
