Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World & DKC Tropical Freeze Impressions

MasonicGamer: Going into E3 Mario Kart 8 was one of the titles that I wasn’t particularly crazy about, these days Mario Kart is a game I buy on release but I’m never all that hyped in the run up to it’s release. Seeing Mario Kart 8 at E3 however changed that as I found myself super excited by what I was seeing, in the particular the new anti gravity mechanic. Now that I’ve had the chance to play the game for myself, I’m back to “good but not crazy about it” status.

Mario Kart 8 for all intents and purposes is Mario Kart 7 with a anti gravity mechanic thrown in.

With this guys reviews. MK8 Looks fantastic, but Nintendo has drifted further and further apart from the simple go kart racing in the Mushroom Kingdom and instead has thrown in things that have no business there. Anti Gravity? Just make an F-Zero game eventually if you want to play with that mechanic. It just seems so out of place.

Mario 3D World looks like crap. Nintendo seems to want to fuse 2D and 3D Mario together, and this isn't want ANY fan of the respective series want. And the game doesn't seem to take place in any coherent world, such as Mario Bros. 3 or World did. I feel this will be a big flop, deservedly so.

DKC, looks damn good. And plays even better than the first game. If there's any question as to Wii U's killer App this holiday season, its DKC, without a doubt.

If Mario Kart 8 was more of the same then people would have been complaining for change. Now that we've seen Mario Kart 8 with its new gameplay people are still complaining... I think the gravity feature looks great and will help grow and evolve the franchise.

So you want them to make HD upgrades of the same game. The reason Mario Kart is fun and fresh is because it's not the same simple Kart racer. The reason why the franchise is so on a different level than anything else is because they take an awesome idea and make it work. If you want a racer that's the same play the games that offer nothing new.

Mario 3d World doesn't look like crap doesn't look like galaxy but not crap either.

Great impressions on these games. Definitely looking forward to both DKC Tropical Freeze and Mario Kart 8.
