Game Chronicles reports:
''First off, Mario Kart can be played with just about any controller you can attach to your Wii. It works with the Classic, the GameCube, and the Remote and Nunchuk, or you can go Remote only and insert it into the stylish racing wheel accessory that comes with the game. Extra wheels are sold for $10 so we can infer that the game would only cost $39 if sold separately, but they are forcing the wheel on you…at least for now.
It's my own personal rule to play racing games with a wheel whenever possible, so I opted for the wheel attachment and was pleasantly surprised to find it quite comfortable and continued to work even at flat angles. Your arms and hands are bound to get tired sooner or later and you can't keep holding the wheel upright in front of you forever, but even at semi-truck angles the steering was responsive.''
