  • Conclusion: It's a toss up between Luigi's death stare and the blue shell still being a thing. Gyah!
  • Pros: Rainbow Road, which is so beautiful and awe -inspiring that epic songs should be penned about it right now and passed down from generation to generation.
  • Cons: The AI has undoubtedly improved, but it's still immensely irritating at times.

  • Excerpt: Mario Kart 8 is here. The game that should have launched with Wii U – old faithful itself – is back. It’s is not the first online version, or the first to offer co-op, but with anti-gravity karts, gliding carts, new items, HD graphics, and new course types, Mario Kart 8 isn’t resting on its laurels...
  • Pros: Spectacular new tracks, Awesome new kart types, Superior competitive balancing to recent entries, Absolutely gorgeous, Best online play of any Nintendo game
  • Cons: Kart races can still end in unfair circumstances, Poor tools for communicating with friends online, Some legacy tracks don’t hold up to new ones

  • Excerpt: In April 2008 I purchased Mario Kart Wii as a birthday present for who is now my eldest step son. I was 35 at the time and the whole Mario Kart thing was pretty foreign to me, so I had no idea what I was getting into when I bought the game.

2 July 2014
  • Summary: Despite a few (large) hiccups, Mario Kart 8 rockets forward as one of the best games to come out on the Wii U yet.
  • Pros: Excellent track design; colorful, bright visuals; lots of racers and kart customizations to unlock.
  • Cons: Complete lack of arena maps makes for a really boring Battle Mode; not enough types of gameplay beyond your standard races; gamepad isn't used very well in multiplayer.
