Maybe because I'm not a Nintendo fanboy I simply don't understand why this is rated so highly. This is the same game over and over, I feel like I've played it before, multiple times. And the worst offence is not being able to play with 5 people split screen with one on the wii u tablet. My whole family quickly grew bored with this game.
I know most fans just love the cute look of Mario kart but I wasn't expecting it to look as fantastic and smooth as this game runs. Still the great controls, good amount of characters, items, fun tracks . I would just give it a 9 but since there is DLC for more variety it's a 10
