IGN UK: Mario Kart Wii Review

Well, despite a few minor flaws - most notably the failure that is offline Battle mode - the sheer quality of this latest Mario Kart installment pretty much sits it right alongside the near-faultless SNES original. Despite initial fears, this is proper Mario Kart, and it's Mario Kart done right. It's fast, it's fun and still one of the best party games ever created.

Thanks to some seriously well-implemented online options though, it brings so much more to the table than its forebears, most notably in terms of longevity. Really, the most serious drawback is that it's still just Mario Kart - and if that's a formula you hate, you're still not going to change your mind. For everyone else though, it's an essential purchase on Wii and a return to form for Nintendo's console racer.

The story is too old to be commented.

Its so amazing. The wii wheel is such a good addition. Its hard to control at the beginning but after practice you get used to it.

This game definately deserved a 9 or above. I wonder what the US and AU reviewers will think
