Mario Kart 8
Best Game Ever!!!
Race on land, under water, in the air, and even upside down. With incredible HD graphics and incredible display, Mario Kart 8 is stunning! I've never been able to say that before about a Mario Kart. Almost all music in the game was created with a live orchestra. The interface of the game is overall smooth and easy. The character selection is huge, but only three characters are the fastest. The Kart Selection is awesome. I love how you get to customize your vehicle. The track selection is pretty awesome. The tracks look beautiful and for the most part are fun to play on. But if your a hardcore gamer like me, you'll find it frustrating that there really aren't many useful shortcuts are glitches. This is because Lakitu (The cloud that picks you up when you fall off the track) picks you up almost immediately after you go out of bounds. This prevents exploring and unique shortcuts. Overall, the courses are awesome. New courses, tracks, characters, and vehicles will be coming in DLC. DLC pack one has already arrived bringing eight new courses, four karts/bikes, and three new characters. DLC pack 2 comes out in May 2015. Game play is pretty great. If you're a pro, you'll learn how to do strategies like Fire hopping and hop sliding. The bikes in this game do not wheelie though. The items are fun, but the item mechanics stink. You can now only hold one item at a time even if you are holding one behind you. It warns you there is a red shell even if it's hitting the person behind you. It gives you the coin item way too much. You can get any item in any place except items are limited in first. I got a banana once in dead last (twelfth) place. And I got a golden mushroom in second. Other than that, game play is awesome. This game is for everyone. From party to hardcore gamers, this game is right for everyone.
Awesome and the best Mario kart game ever!!
The most Best Mario kart game ever!! beautiful Graphics, Awesome design on tracks, Hi-Def game play, customizing you're karts, new characters to play, the bring back with older Mario kart game courses that you enjoyed before on the older versions, new power up's, slow down replay so you can watch you're self beat up others or watch you're self pull off tricks to be in complete awe. The music is so pretty and memorable you just want to hear it again and again. I love this game and i am glad its out now. I was dying for this game to come out and now its out!! This is worth the money i am serious!! It is a MUST!!! BUY!! with the Wii U. You feel you have got you're money's worth. So i really do recommend this game for anyone Mario Bros fan and even Mario kart Fans. This is just my Opinion on this game i adore this game so much and the Luigi death stare is a new hit meme!! So get out there and start racing!!
This is the best Mario Kart game I have ever played and the new features are awesome. This game has awesome graphics and LOTS of replay value. You can hop online for free and race and battle or run some time trials. Did I mention Mario Kart TV? Well basically that allows you to upload your Mario Kart race/battle to youtube or share it on miiverse. My only disappointment is battle mode. Instead of a battle course now battle takes place on the tracks. This game gets a 10/10. I will also show you some footage of the track shy guy falls uploaded to youtube by Mario Kart TV.
The Best Mario Kart?
Yes this is Nintendo's 8th installment of Mario's go kart game If you are not counting the two arcade Mario Karts. Just like Mario Kart 7 Mario Kart 8 has hang gliding and under water parts of the track but now the game has anti-gravity parts that put you upside down or side ways. This is why I like to call the game Mario Kart Zero. As far as we know the game will consist with 4 cups with all new tracks and 4 cups with retro tracks just like priviest games. Mario Kart 8 will run at 60 frames per second even during 2 player mode and will support online play. It's unknown if you can customize your kart again but I think it will return. Is Mario Kart 8 the best Mario Kart well we will have to see this Spring. Enjoy Nintendo's latest video for Mario Kart 8.
It's everyone's favorite karting game. It's what you grew up with. It's what might've got you into gaming in general. It's the almighty Mario Kart. After the last 3ds hit, Mario Kart 7, we haven't seen a new game in a couple of years. The all brand new Mario kart 8 is almost here in Spring 2014 and it's gonna be a blast. Exclusively on the Wii U, Mario Kart 8 will feature brand new tracks, that look very good, Returning racers, and never before seen so far in a Mario Kart, HD graphics! Also there is a new anti-gravity feature that will allow you to drive upside down, side ways, and inside out(okay maybe not inside out)! I can't even describe how excited I feel about this game, other than it looks absolutely incredibly fun! This game might just be the reason you should buy a Wii U. I'm sorry if this preview isn't as good as they usually are. It's just their not much that can be said about the game since it's going to follow the path that made all of the other games in the series so great. Well until the game comes out and my review is up, stay karting everyone!
Best. Racing. Game. Ever.
This game is SOOO much fun. A big selling point of the Wii U. You are racing on the ground, a shell hits you. You rage, to the point you're determined to get revenge. You get a golden mushroom, and zoom past that toad that hit you. You hit a ramp and go gliding through the sky. You see Bowser, and you manage to land farther than him. You now realize that the finish line is right in front of you. You're in 5th, with Lakitu Warning you there's only two laps left. You collect a box, and get a bullet bill, passing and destroying all opponents. You enter an anti-gravity section, and loop back around. You pass the finish line, this time in 1st place. You're not gonna let anyone pass you. You are about to cross the finish line the last time, and a blue shell comes your way. You were lucky, and happened to have a super horn. You used it, and passed the finish line. You get rewarded your gold trophy. It's very fun, and I highly recommend Mario Kart 8.
Racing goes in air, underwater, and upside down!
Mario Kart 8 brings a wild, new racing adventure that defies the laws of physics. This game brings some big improvements to the Mario Kart series, but there are a few aspects in the game I felt like Nintendo could have done better with. Gameplay: The racing itself is almost perfected upon in Mario Kart 8. The new anti-gravity feature really ties in with and completes gliding in the air and the racing underwater features from Mario Kart 7. Another thing that the anti-gravity allows for is wild course design. Now courses can have you racing on walls and going upside down, so naturally this lets Nintendo be creative with course design. Speaking of courses, the retro courses are beautifully redone and feel brand new. For the first time, I don't mind racing a retro course rather than the new ones. Also the new items are really great and I think they add a really strategic game play. Other than just racing itself, battle mode is an important aspect I feel worth mentioning. This time there is only one type of battle mode: Balloon battle. And there are no battle mode courses this time. Nintendo just decided to use the courses you race on as battle mode courses. This is definitely a flaw that needs to be fixed in the nest game. Other than that I really wish Nintendo would go back to using the good old elimination style of balloon battle. This time its based on time and you try to get the most points, but its nice that elimination can still happen. Music: Music is absolutely gorgeous for this game. Nintendo decided to have the music orchestrated with a big band which sounds great for Mario Kart surprisingly. Graphics: The graphics are just as impressive as the music. Mario Kart 8 is the first Mario Kart to be in HD, and the graphics are smooth. Lasting Appeal: Mario Kart 8 is great because its one of those games you can always go back to and play with friends or play online. The online features are well done in this game and are, for the most part, smooth. Mario Kart 8 is truly one of the best games in the Mario Kart series that even defies gravity.
Finally get Mario Kart for Wii U and its awesome although has few downfalls, its still great game. I will start with the pros, the graphics and soundtrack is great, its looks wonderful in HD and the music is outstanding. The anti-gravity is fun and very easy to get ahold on if its your first time playing. New items work out just well. There is only few problems I have with the game, one main problem is character roster they could have done better and add characters like Birdo, King Boo, dry bones, and many more instead of replacing them with babies and metal characters, but rumors are going around saying DLC is coming soon so hopefully that will change it. They also took away wheelies and automatic drift from the Wii version. But other than the game is awesome and I would recommend getting for you, family and friends.
+Great Graphics and Music
+Fun alone or with multi-players
+Great Tracks with or without anti-gravity
+Awesome Online Play
-No Wheelies or automatic drift

Disappointing if you were a fan of MK Wii
After ample time to review this game, I can say I'm genuinely bummed about MK 8. With the exception of the vast amount of online cheating, MK Wii was superior in everyway. My biggest complaint about 8 is the crummy special items and the lack of being able to store more than one item at a time. A close second in disappointment is the online inability to vote for whatever track you want. If you were a fan of racing with bikes, gone is the ability to pop wheelies for added speed. There is also an over abundance of unfamiliar characters that just seem tacked on to fill nintendo's unnecessarily gigantic roster. Lastly, unlike all the previous versions of kart (I've played the franchise religiously since 64), many tracks have gravity defying twists and turns, frequently forcing you to drive upside down and every which way. I sometimes get a stomach churning experience I can only describe as the same feeling one might feel after riding a bunch of roller coasters with loops! It's gnarly, and I can't seem to handle much more than 30 minutes of game play at a time. I used to be able to play MK Wii for hours on end, so this is a total bummer. The only improvement I see over the Wii version is the improved graphics and lack of online cheating. But it's probably just a matter of time before hackers figure it out, and I'll gladly trade the visual improvements for the previous style of game play. Nintendo may have boosted its waning console sales with the release of MK 8, but the game itself is a true disappointment to this hard core Kart fan.
