The Mario Kart series has always been a success story for Nintendo. Each game holds fond memories for party gamers. There have been many times when defining my weekend to someone meant simply saying, "Mario Kart 64 with friends."
After Double Dash became one of the best games for the Gamecube, many wondered what Nintendo could possibly do next for the series. Mario Kart DS managed to bring the retro side back to kart racing, but the Wii version needed to top a this fan-favorite in every gameplay aspect.
I am very happy to say that this game is the best yet. The first time I inserted the disc and slid the remote into the Wii Wheel (more about that later,) I knew there was something special.
