Mario Kart Wii

The 8th Circuit
22 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Mario Kart is a legendary series, for good cause. Since its' debut on the Super Nintendo, it has dominated the sales charts, and enthralled many. The basic premise is this, characters from the Mario universe drive karts, they race, they win, and we play one of the best multiplayer series out there to date.

Review: Mario Kart Wii

The 8th Circuit
22 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Mario Kart is a legendary series, for good cause. Since its' debut on the Super Nintendo, it has dominated the sales charts, and enthralled many. The basic premise is this, characters from the Mario universe drive karts, they race, they win, and we play one of the best multiplayer series out there to date. Counting the arcade releases, this is the eighth Mario Kart game, a rather impressive pedigree, dating across numerous consoles, and handhelds.

Mario Kart Wii

AV Club
8 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Whether all this is enough to merit a purchase depends almost entirely on how much Nintendo-fanboy blood courses through your veins.
  • Pros: The new courses, including one set inside a shopping mall filled with escalators (look for your Miis to appear in advertisements throughout the mall), are some of the best tracks in the series.
  • Cons: Getting nailed with a Spiny Shell when you're only a few feet from the finish line will, as usual, result in the invention of several hundred never-before-heard expletives.

Mario Kart Wii game review

Boys' Life magazine
23 December 2008
  • Excerpt: This is the most enjoyable racing game of the year. Tear through 32 wacky courses (like Wario’s Gold Mine, which feels like a roller coaster, or Mushroom Gorge, where red mushrooms let you bounce forward). For serious competition, you can race online with other Mario Kart fans from around the world. So far, there have been eight editions of Mario Kart, including the super popular last game for DS.
  • Pros: The game is very deep with courses, characters and modes. Online play is a cinch to access. Your Miis pop up in the game.
  • Cons: Some of the courses are repeats from earlier versions of Mario Kart. There’s no way to block attacks from other drivers.

Fun family-friendly game that's hard to put down.

Common Sense Media
9 December 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is perfectly suitable for players of all ages. The ESRB warning of "comic mischief" relates to the combative nature of the arcade race, where players can shoot turtle shells at other go-karts to trip them up or when giant hammers flatten riders on their way to the finish line. The game can be played with up to 12 players online, but Common Sense Media doesn't recommend unsupervised online gaming for anyone under age 12.

Mario Kart Wii review (WII)

HonestGamers
15 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Nintendo should be commended for making genuine improvements to its classic formula, but my resulting goodwill vanished the minute I was reminded that rubber band AI is the devil.

Mario Kart

Game Boyz
6 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Mario Kart has been the definitive title when gamers think about what makes a kart racer a good game. It has been approximately 16 years since Nintendo released their first version of Mario Kart to the world, and since that time there have been many companies who have tried but could not succeed in replicating the magic of the Mario Kart games. Well Nintendo has once again released an updated version of its long running kart series, but this time for the Wii.
