Mario Kart WiiTHE 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 the fact that you can do tricks, makes the course even better! They do alot of little things with most of the courses in this game, but the little things turn out to be bigger than what the seem, making this game the BEST installation in this series of EXCELLENT games!
THE BAD: The bad parts of the game aren't actually to bad. The thing that annoys me, would have to be the fact that in the Wi-Fi Tournaments, there are so many people who enter, that it is pretty much unfair to those who truly try their best and win.
Another thing that is probably the MOST annoying thing on the game, would have to be the fact that people can leave you right in the middle of a match. The only thing about people leaving that I don't like, for example, would be if you are right in the zone, alright, and then whoever you are VS, goes and says basically: "I am still in last place, so I am just going to quit!" If you ask me, I hate the people who do that, even though I (SOMETIMES) do myself.
SUMMARY: The game has better graphics than other installments in the series. For example: Take Mario in the wii version, and take your ds and take a look at Mario. Two different worlds, right?
The game's addition of bikes and tricks, makes the game excellent. An example of how it makes the game excellent, is the feel, and or rush that you receive when you pull off a trick, and here the cheer of the crowd. Excellent feeling.
This game is a good installastioin to the series, because it sort of goes from the bad graphics in the Nintendo 64 version of Mario Kart, and then with Super Mario Circuit the graphics slightly change, but still not adequate, and then to Mario Kart Double Dash, with improving graphics, and then even to Mario Kart DS, with graphics that can be called good, to Mario Kart Wii, which has the best graphics of the series (so far). So, really, what the point is, is this game wraps up the different graphics, and pulls it all together, so us Mario gamers don't have to worry about Mario games yet to come, to have bad graphics!
The new courses which have been included, have taken a BIG role in making this game one of my favorites! I hope that Nintendo can make a great Mario Kart game again, like this, no matter what system it is for. For example: Moo Moo Meadow, a classic course. In Moo Moo Meadow, they have taken it from being a normal, classical course, and improved it to an awesome, thrillful track! Again, the new-and-improved courses, play a big role in why this game is at the TOP of my favorite Mario Kart/racing games!
This game is an awesome one! I enjoy this game very much, and I hope you do whoever reads this does, too! The game has so many good things that I would never be able to fit them into this review! If you wish to experience what I have experienced with this game, and what I have yet to experience, then go out, buy one copy of this game, go home, sit down, and witness Mario Kart Wii, IN THE FLESH!!!
