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
Rated 10 out of 10 by SqurlKnight3 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.

This game is amazing. The graphics are stunning and the controls are smooth and responsive. This is the best racing game hands down. My entire family sits down to enjoy playing this game together. We all have our favorite racers and favorite vehicles. You can easily get to the "end" of this game within a few hours (around 8 or 9), but the ability to replay this game over and over and have fun every time is astounding. Nintendo will always have some of the best games out there and this game is one of the reasons we bought the Wii U!
Rated 10 out of 10 by ENRICHMENT Best Mario Kart to Date?
New mechanics, characters, and items, combined with the best music and graphics of any Mario Kart game to date make this the obvious choice for any type of gamer. This game gives gamers another reason to buy a Wii U.
Rated 9 out of 10 by GrizzCrisps A great addition to the mario kart series
This game surpassed beyond my expectations. Its a great game with great music, great graphics, and the anti gravity is a nice addition. the only problem i have with this game is the item balance, the only items you will get in this game are mushrooms and coins. The game even does great DLC with 16 courses, 6 characters, and 8 new karts all for 12 dollars! this game really is good and you should definitely pick it up if you have a wii u
Rated 0 out of 10 by GamerBoy80 Finally!! Mario Kart in HD!!!
Man, am I looking forward to this Game! It's the first high definition Mario Kart! I have been a huge fan of this series ever since I first played it on the SNES. I was never a big fan of racing games, but I absolutely love Mario Kart! Using items to take out your opponents makes for a fun experience and also levels the playing field for gamers of all skill levels. I have been playing Mario Kart Wii a lot lately in anticipation of this game. Love that Wii Wheel control scheme! I am so glad we will be able to use them with the new game! There will be little to no learning curve which is great. The new Wii Wheel they're making for 8 looks real cool! I'll definitely be buying one! I hope they make the limited edition Mario Kart 8 available here in the United States. I'd love to have that blue shell statue on my game shelf! May 30th is just around the corner. Hope to see you all racing online! I know that's where I'll be!

This is one of the best Wii U games ever created. The graphics are good, gameplay is excellent and new features are great.
Rated 0 out of 10 by NintendoHistory 3....2....1.....PREVIEW!
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!

Mario Kart has been struggling recently. With the last GOOD GAME being Mario Kart Double Dash on the Gamecube, Nintendo hasn't really been making a good impression on the racing world. That is not until Mario Kart 8!
In regards to other racing games, Mario Kart 8 is #1, 10/10. But when it comes to what they did compared to what they could have done, once again Nintendo flopped on the single player.
If you have friends to play this with then it's a must have for Wii U owners.
