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.
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
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!
Another Reason to Buy a Wii U!
I have always loved the Mario Kart games. They are extremely fun, and they make excellent multiplayer games. Many of Nintendo's games are great for local multiplayer. The Wii U has had some excellent games come out for it so far, but I haven't felt the need to buy one until now. Now that Mario Kart 8 is coming out for the Wii U, I will have to buy a Wii U. To me, Nintendo games like Mario Kart 8 are the best multiplayer and party games out there. I always enjoy playing Nintendo games like Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros with friends and family, because they are games that everyone can enjoy playing together. This is why I now feel the need to buy a Wii U. I have a PlayStation 4, but there has been a lack of great local multiplayer games for it. The Wii U, however, like many Nintendo consoles in the past, has many fun multiplayer games, such as Mario Kart 8. This is why more people need to give the Wii U a chance. I will be buying a Wii U soon, because I know that Nintendo's games provide some of the best multiplayer experiences available. Mario Kart 8 will be amazing, It will have incredibly fun single and multiplayer modes, like other Mario Karts before it. I am very much looking forward to this game as well as other games from Nintendo that will come out for the Wii U, such as Super Smash Bros. For these reasons, I will buy a Wii U. I also hope that more people decide to give the Wii U a chance because of the fun games it has.
Mario Kart still remains a favorite.
I have always been a fan of Mario Kart since the original. This game, while some might not say is any different, has a lot to offer. Between the maps being beautiful, the kart customization and the amount of characters to choose from there is no lack of content. Like always this game is fun to play by yourself, but even more fun with a group of friends. Now the only complaint I have besides some of the maps truly requiring drifting, is that the item randomizer in this game is lacking. While it has great tools (except for the coins) it doesn't seem to randomize well. You can be in last place and still only get 3 mushrooms, which in all honestly don't help all that much unless your pacing someone, but you feel like you don't get what you need as often like red shells, stars, blue shell, green shells, bullet bill, or pretty much anything to help you advance up. If there is once thing I learned is that if you fall behind you usually stay behind until you either catch a break or something. Don't let that discourage you from playing, its nice that in Grand Prix when you play with friends all the other NPCs are there too unlike the N64 Version and such making you feel better because you're beating someone. So get your friends and enjoy a night of Mario Kart 8!
Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros 4 will come along to save the Wii U. It's going to be the best Mario Kart to date.
Buy This Game NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a tremendous value as of the time of this review if you have a free nintendo club account and buy Mario Kart 8 and register the game on club nintendo(which you should be doing anyway to get cool freebies) you can get an additional free download game to your wii u. You can get either pikmin 3, or wii party u, or new super mario bros u, or the legend of zelda windwaker hd. I chose zelda as my free game also a stunning game so to kick off this review this is basically like getting 2 games for the price of one now as far as Mario Kart 8 goes it is worth every penny alone so even after the deadline to get the additional free game so after 7/31/14 this game alone is still worth the asking price it is a beautiful game graphics are stunning the gameplay mechanics are the same as mario kart wii there are plenty of classic and new tracks that the whole family will surely enjoy. I simply cannot say enough good about this game it is non stop fun period go out and buy this game you will not regret it if you have ever played any mario kart game you will love this one lets hope after this release the next mario title hopefully mario party(fingers crossed) will be every bit as good as this game.
This Game Is Awesome! One of the Best Games Ever!
This game is amazing, the graphics are insanely good and run at 60fps! When the slow motion in the instant replays takes effect, it still runs at 60fps. So the game must actually double that frame rate. It must be around 120fps. That's insane for a game of this graphical quality! The Gameplay is the best on the Wii U Gamepad, the gamepad makes it a whole lot easier to control the kart, bike or atv your driving. The choices of karts are awesome. There are three basic types of vehicle, standard karts, bikes and atvs. But you can unlock special ones the more coins you collect while racing. Every hundred coins or so you unlock another vehicle or upgrade. You can choose tires and sails as well (for flying!). The single player is epic with 32 different tracks to choose from! 16 classic and 16 new! The tracks are expertly designed and really make the game more fun. Also there are different modes like time attack and balloon battle. You can customize those even further as well. If you complete all of the grand prix modes than you unlock mirror mode, which I haven't tried out yet. It's a real challenge as the game gets harder the more you play! But it is still great for beginners because it's sectioned off into three main game modes. 50cc (the slowest). 100cc (medium), 150cc (the fastest). In every mode you start out with the regular characters that appeared in the previous Mario Kart games. You unlock more by doing well on each grand prix cup. The new koopalings are very fun to play as and I enjoy playing as Lemmy the most.
The Multiplayer is also epic. You get all the upgrades and characters you've unlocked in single player in Multiplayer as well. You can vote for the tracks you want in a lobby and then when the race track is chosen it begins. There is no lag at all when I was playing online, and I have my Wii U connected wirelessly through a router three rooms away with walls in the middle. You can play worldwide, regional, with friends or in a tournament. The tournaments are like a grand prix single player race but scored.
Mario Kart TV is a great feature that lets you share your videos of your races with the world. The game automatically captures highlight videos of your races while you race in single player. You can then edit your video the way you want it and post it to Youtube. It's really simple and viewing video is really easy as well.
The gameplay is great, there are many different items that you can collect to win the race. There are coins that you can collect to increase your speed, and there are powerups like the star that makes you invincible and when you bump into people they will crash while you just keep on going. These powerups can turn the tide in a race, which is why there is never any time where you are sure you are going to win or lose. Sometime when you think you're going to win, you are kicked back all the way to sixth place. But other times the opposite takes effect, I was in ninth place when all of a sudden I picked up a golden mushroom that let me burst into the lead and I took the win. It is these moments that you'll remember forever! Playing this game was rediscovering what it means to play Nintendo games.
The game is super fun and exciting and I've been playing it all week. It's one of the best games I have ever played.
Can't wait until Zelda and Smash Bros Wii U Come out they are going to be awesome!
