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.
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.
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.
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.
Conclusion: So should you import this game? As most of you know, the U.S. version is about a week away. Unless you can obtain a copy plus a Freeloader as soon as possible, then you should wait. Note that the game works perfectly with the Freeloader (as of Wii firmware update 3.2).
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.
