Classic Mario kart and not...

I like Mario kart but this is just more of the same. Nothing too new, nothing too different, more polish and fan service which is nice. Problem is some of the tracks are so all over the place with the anti gravity I get motion sickness. If that's groundbreaking to you then I'm jealous, for me it'd new and not really for the better.

All said, it's great but it's not ground breaking or revolutionary. It's a really good wii u title but that's not saying a ton.

MK8 Even In My Dreams

MK8 is tons of fun...Game visuals are great and has high play value...unlockables are simple (collect coins/ finish cups/ and time) w/o tv right onto the gamepad

The drawbacks are:
1. Battle mode stinks - instead of a battle arena its on a race track without a map - so most ppl hide
2. Online is shady - when its running smooth - TONS AND TONS of fun... but has its laggy races and drops the race altogether.
3. Cant chat with online buddies during a race, cant even join a room together unless you open the friends list and jump into their game or simultaneously hit race at the same time
4. Cannot split player screen so that one person can play on the gamepad and others can have more of the tv screen

But its Def tons of fun - even play it in my dreams
