Mario Kart
o
Mario Kart,
why do you repeat your self so?
12 of the same stages we have seen before,
And to include Funky Kong and the Mario galaxy lady?
Reggy (CEO of NOA) why shove this down our throats,
you havent changed it at all,
except for the super amazing online mode.
The end.

Okay so the game single player sucks. Online is good or with other people. Battles must be done on teams and The online games have super fast connection time. The online games don't stop also. You are put into the nest avalible game and some people join this game on the next corse. This meens you can go from having two players to twelve in less thaan 3 minutes (game lenth). Also uses weird point scoring system thing.

Here it is a last a great online game from Nintendo. The only negative is that there is no talking between players. Here is hoping Nintendo upgrades this game with new features (audio) and courses. If that happens I will come back and rate this game a 10.

This is a great game! The graphics are good(it is the wii not exceptional graphics) The music is typical mario kart music with a few very strange additions(the almost celtic nature of many of the mushroom cup races?). The online play is extremely fun! It is easy to connect to and the point system really keeps me coming back and wanting to be the best! I love being able to race ghosts from around the world and I think the tournament option has countless applications. Now the flaws. As I said this is a great game but I do have a few issues with it.
1) I think bikes are far superior to karts. Which I find annoying because I have used toad and his standard cruiser forever!
2) I was really disappointed with the losing music. One of my favorite things about the other mario kart games was the really insulting losing music. It was sooooooo demeaning that you felt you had to do better.
3)How can there be no two player grand prix!!!! This is a crime against humanity!
Great game if I could of given it a 9.5 I would of! Buy and enjoy
