Excerpt: Mario Kart Wii is going to be a system seller. As if Nintendo needed to give consumers any more reason to want a Wii. Mario Kart Wii is the kind of a video game that gets gamers, non-gamers, grandma, grandpa, and little kids excited. Nintendo included something for just about everybody in Mario Kart Wii. Hardcore competitive gamers want to go online and get smoked by staffers of FFG - check. Casual gamers want a little fun here and there - check.
Excerpt: I wont be reviewing the wii its self like most of the idiots who dont realize everything in this bundle counts. Mariokart, started for the N64, it was great. And now for the wii its even better! I found the wii its self was okay. A lot of the times, connection from the controller and sensor could be poor, the Graphics are terrible, and WFC isnt very good. And you can also play Gamecube on it! But Mariokart, was great!
Conclusion: All in all, this is an excellent title that every game enthusiast should own. If anyone tells you they don't like the game, then they probably don't like chocolate, the Superbowl or comedies either. There is so much fun packed into the title that all but the most "alternative" of core gamers are bound to love it.
Summary: Mario Kart Wii is a fantastic addition to the franchise and the Wii Wheel gives it a breath of fresh air. With online matches and a myriad of options, gamers can be sure that there’s more than enough reasons to be playing this game over and over again. If you don’t already own Mario Kart Wii, do yourselves a favor and pick this one up ASAP.
See you on the track!
Excerpt: Here we go: After iterations on SNES, N64, GBA, Gamecube and DS the Mario Kart series is now heading to Nintendo's Wii, including 32 tracks, 25 drivers and – for the first time – bikes. First of all: Mario Kart Wii isn’t a casual game in the sense that the game is easier to handle than previous versions.
Conclusion: Remember that line-up we did at the start of this review? Well, despite a few minor flaws - most notably the failure that is offline Battle mode - the sheer quality of this latest Mario Kart installment pretty much sits it right alongside the near-faultless SNES original. Despite initial fears, this is proper Mario Kart, and it's Mario Kart done right. It's fast, it's fun and still one of the best party games ever created.
