nintendo has done it again i'm a big fan of mario kart but this time i will not own it due the upside down tracks might make my head feel funny in real life i can't go on upside down rides b/c of my seizure disorder it's a fun game but not for me to own the upside is that it's fun and cool the downside is that the wiiu game pad controls i give mario kart 8 5 1st place out of 5.
MK8 is tons of fun...Game visuals are great and has high play value...unlockables are simple (collect coins/ finish cups/ and time)..play 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
