Summary: This game is ok at best. It is nice that it has online features but the online lobby needs some serious work. It does not give you much reason to open other characters since there are no special weapons for each character. It is cool to be able to check your times against your friends, your region or the world and the tournaments are hit or miss.
Summary: I feel really torn about this review, because there are elements of this game that are really, really fun and elements that are the bland, boring results of some horrifically awful game design decisions. Let's start with PROS: The maps are well-thought and nicely implemented, and there's a reasonable amount of variety, especially when Mirror Mode becomes available.
Summary: Mario kart wii is a very fun game for the whole family and friends. This game requires no skill to play whatsoever unlike mario kart double dash you will end up coming first in this game by accident a lot of times. The weapons are far too over-powered and the AI in 150cc will hit you at least 3 times in any match with Blue shells if you are first by some distance. The Online is decent but the nintendo servers are really rubbish.
Summary: This game with the Wii wheel is probably the most entertaining Wii game that is out. I spent quite a few house with my young brothers and sister playing multiplayer (both offline and online). Online is a big feature for a Wii game so it already gets a big plus from me in that aspect of the game. However the novelty of the poorly synced controller and cheap peripherals wear off.
Pros: Quite fun multiplayer, lots of features in-game
Cons: Boring after a while, inaccurate, (Wii remotes fault) and tooo easy
