Mario Kart Wii is the ultimate racing game. The graphics are some of the best I've seen along with Super Mario Galaxy. The tracks are highly impressive, the music is very catchy, and the cars are very unique. Mini-boosts are a new addition and help out a ton. I like to do tricks after every jump. Rainbow road is the most difficult, but fun coarse in the game. Some new items like the Mega-Mushroom and the lightning cloud, definitely add suspense to the race. Also, the fact that the Wii Wheel comes into play, makes you feel like your actually driving. This is a must have for any Mario fan and avid racing fan. On your marks.... get set....gooooooooo!!!!

Mario Kart Wii is the best racing game ever! The online play is awesome! There are a lot of characters and stages the best part about it is that you control a steering wheel to make it like your really driving.

Mario Kart Wii (or Bagel Racing as my wife and I refer to it as you can use a bagel instead of the steering peripheral and get the same effect) is over all a really fun game over all. Most of the stages are very imaginative and just difficult enough to keep you on your toes. My only gripe with the game comes in the form of the other racers, or more the power ups that they wield. I can be in first place with a 10 second lead and then out of nowhere I'm hit with a lightning bolt, then a pow block, then a blue shell, and all of the sudden I'm in last place with virtually no hope of regaining my lead. And the fact that there is no hope of avoiding some of these is just ridiculous. I lost track of the number of time I started swearing at the TV because the computer hit me with a lightning bolt in mid air, dropping me into a pit. As I said, for the most part the game is a lot of fun, I'm just hoping they make the weaponry less frustrating in the next installment.
