After eight installments over 20 years (not including Bandai Namco’s arcade spinoffs), the Mario Kart formula has become one of gaming’s most reliable series. It’s also practically review-proof. No matter what I write here, 1.2 million people have already taken the plunge, and the game will likely continue to sell. Fortunately for those people, it’s still pretty good."
