I heard 200cc was breaking tracks. Guess Nintendo didn't QA all the tracks huh?

Well I think new free features are welcome in this day and age when even getting a digital gun in blue instead of the default color cost money. I still haven't had anything track breaking happen unless you are talking about me going into the wall a lot lol.

I don't know how happy I am about the modes being unlocked by default though since that is about the only thing to really look forward to achieving in this game other than unlocking characters. But I guess it gives kids more things to do since they probably couldn't do it by themselves.

Maybe, make the tracks wider? I hate wall grinding.

200cc is epic fast, blazing sense of speed untouched by anything on rival consoles. (Very challenging you need to master simultaneously brake and accelerate while drifting to have any control) Its fun to get enormous air time and try to fly over sections of the track usually Lakitu scoops you up. (Glitches can be fun) Noticed a few tracks don't come up for 200cc multiplayer online or have a small chance so Nintendo is obviously on it.

I don't want it automatically unlocked thanks was more than happy to do that myself.

If it bothers you so much, feel free pretending to unlock it and fulfill the prerequisites anyway.

By the time DLC pack two came out I had the prerequisites finished and had access to 200cc as soon as it installed.
