THE GOOD: This game has many things about it that make it good. For instance: The game is entertaining. The opening video, for example, has a good sense of humor, which makes it a good choice for retro Mario gamers.
The extended kart range, too, for example, makes this game more interesting. With the new addition of bikes, you can really enjoy the game more, if in the past mario kart titles you have been disapointed to see mostly more "car-like" karts, the addition of bikes makes it better if you are a hardcore biker, other than just a "casual driver".
The game is enjoyable with almost EVERY new addition of anything they have added! The brand new courses introduced, along with the old courses, makes the game alot more fun. Sure, as like Mario kart DS, they added spiffy new details to older courses, and sure, they added a few new courses here and there. Rainbow road, for example, has the same difficulty as it did with Super Mario Circuit, plus the addition of speed boosters, ramps, and...
Mario Kart Wii was by far one of the best games that I have ever played. The graphics of this game were HD amazing; the colors were great, the background had great detail and I felt like I was there.
The control handling was specifically designed to fit all. Whether I played using the Wii remote or the steering Wii wheel, I was filled with excitement and thrilled to have played it.
The new karts and bikes and Mii options was a great addition because I never got bored; every time I played the same character it was not the same. In addition to the the vehicles the amount of tracks that are available and the way are made is outstanding, because each one was created with such a great amount of detail and was based on the main themes for certain characters of the game. I never felt like I was going in a boring circle that would end the joy. Not only did the tracks look good, I performed amazing stunts with the characters I picked.
The Mario Kart series has been a popular game among Mario fans and Mario Kart Wii does not disappoint. With new tracks, characters, items, and features the game really is one of the best for the Nintendo Wii.
From the first opening of the game to when your in the middle of a race Mario Kart Wii will really shine. Nintendo did not fall short on making the game look and play its best. You will start the game by creating a license (you can make up to four) which will keep track of the cups you have beaten. While making the license you will be asked to choose a Mii for to represent the license, and not to spoil anything, but your Mii's will come into play later in the game.
The main menu of Mario Kart consists of 4 different panels; Single Player, Multiplayer, Nintendo WiFi, and the Mario Kart Channel which I will go through later in the game. The main menu really stands out from the usual boring menus you find yourself staring at during the beginning of the game. The brigh...
THE GOOD: Controls are easy to get used to, especially with the Wii Remote. The Wii Remote adds more fun to the game, as you control the steering by tilting the remote. The advanced stats make it so there is a kart/bike/character combination that perfectly suits anyone's driving style. Each character adds a little to 2 stats. Funky Kong is used to set many World Records in Time Trails, along with Daisy and Toadette, because of their character stat boost.
Online play gives you something to do after beating the game and getting stars in the Grand Prix can challenge even some of the best players. Getting a Star in every race on every CC will give you a star ranking online. When playing online on Worldwide or Regoinal, the Wii matches you up with people with around the same amount of Versus/Battle Points as you.
Also in Mario Kart Wii is the Mario Kart Channel. While on this Wii Channel you can race in tournaments, compare your Time Trails scores with scores around the world, and race oth...
This game is magnificent. Really is probably the best game I've played on the Wii. It features intuitive controls, great gameplay, two good ways to get your competitive gaming in, all in one, family friendly game. It features all of the characters we loved from the Mario series, like Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Peach, Bowser, you get the picture. But it also has a decent amount of spinoff characters, like Funky Kong, the Baby characters. It also even features the little villains that usually aren't portrayed majorly in games, such as Dry Bones and Koopa Troopa. The Mario Kart Channel is awesome, seeing time trials and tournaments really help this game be, in my opinion, the best WiFi Wii game to date. But the main reason the game gets that title from me, is the actual racing online aspect of it. 12 players all over the world with no lag is simply amazing, since Nintendo can't handle a regional game with 4 players in Brawl without it lagging up a storm. ...
THE GOOD: Very Smooth Online Play The New Wii Wheel Easy Controls A lot of New Characters Great Courses
THE BAD: Wii Wheel Can Be Hard To Use Sometimes It Can Get Very Boring
SUMMARY: I came home from the store with my copy of Mario Kart Wii. I had a ton of fun playing with an excellent cast of Nintendo characters, listening to good music, playing on stages with amazing graphics, and hitting my brother with koopa shells. Mario Kart Wii is one of the great games on the Wii. Of course it can get very boring at times but even if you play a little each day you will have a ton of fun.
Well all the gamers that bought Mario Kart Wii were introduced to a new type of controller, the Wii Wheel. What seems to be an excellent piece of technology at first is really a piece of plastic shaped into a wheel with a spot where you put in your Wii Remote. However I tend to use the Wii Wheel when playing against family or friends. It does give the feel that you are driving a car. When playing competitive...
THE GOOD: - Online is one of the best on a Nintendo system to date. - The voice overs are pretty well done - Most of the courses are fun to play on - Controls are great once you get used to them (depending on what you are using)
THE BAD: - Graphics could be much better - People may see the AI as cheap - Wii Wheel could be hard to get used to for some people.
SUMMARY: Mario Kart Wii is the latest installment to the Mario Kart series and the first installment on the Wii. The game comes with the new Wii Wheel, which is to give a more realistic steering experience. If you prefer not to use that, you may still use the Classic or GameCube controller to play.
Mario Kart Wii lets you have up to twelve players race to the finish in a multi-lap race around a given course. Like previous Mario Karts, players may use items and take shortcuts in order to earn first place. A new feature in the game would be the “Stunts” feature. When you perform a stunt, you get a momentary boost of speed which allows your ...
THE GOOD: Mario Kart Wii, although I only played for about half an hour, amazed me. The graphics were very well thought out, and was a very good game. The sound effects were something I enjoyed, and it had all the classic bonuses, but revamped with new ones. The steering wheel was very good for controls, and actually gave me a real racing feel. It made me feel like I was actually in control, and didn't just have to press Up and Down with the A button to accelerate. I liked how the spread the buttons out, but I did have some problems...
THE BAD: The only major problem I encountered was which buttons were used. The 2 button for accelerating caught me off guard, and I almost lost because of it. I needed to pause, and I didn't think that it would be where it was. I also had trouble getting the bonuses to be used, which to me a while. Some parts of the game were easy, and I'll talk about that later.
Mario Kart Wii was very fun. The gameplay was overall good. You could choose between a...
If the miracle of science one day makes time travel possible, the first thing scientists should do is find out the exact amount of times people have sworn throughout history and then calculate what percentage of these obscenities were aimed at Mario Kart. I'd honestly be surprised by anything less than 50%, because for every stubbed toe or finger-jammed-in-door experience, there are at least ten Blue Shells hurtling ominously towards whatever players had the balls to try and come first. Such is the nature of Mario Kart, a series that promotes itself as family friendly but is really just a home wrecker in disguise.
For those of you as new to gaming as the Playstation 3 is to being a worthwhile purchase, then let me give you a quick run down of what Mario Kart is all about:
It's Mario, in a kart. Moving on.
This series has been so successful because it is the epitome of the "pick-up and play" mentality. Doing marginally well requires little more than holding accelerate while pushing the ...
One player can get quite boring, its better when racing with friends.
SUMMARY: This is the new Mario Kart we've all been waiting for but is it really that good as expected? Sure it looks good but to me it wasn't as great as expected to be perfectly honest.
The new items are great; some examples are the mega mushroom and the pow block. The mega mushroom makes you huge and if you simply bump into someone they will be flattened and also your speed is increased. The pow block shakes the ground for your opponents and then sends them spinning.
Yes there are even more new characters. They were quite easy to get in this game... well the majority for me, but some of them were very hard to get and for me it was almost ...
