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
Its time for a new Mario kart now on Wii. The new changes it got are the ones it needed. graphics, charcters,and tracks. gamecube was in "good" mode, gameboy made it go down, ds made it go to "cool" mode, Wii makes and forces it to go OVER AWSOME!!!!!!!

Mario Kart Wii is a great game and when i tried it out i was stunned on how good it was. The thing i thought was most amazing was most wii racing games are really quircky and if you barely move the controller the car went everywhere and it is much less touchy in this game. I really fell in love with this game in the first 20 minutes of playing. Also there are new races, now motorcycles and wifi connection really brings out the joy of this game. If you have a wii there is no reason you shouldnt give this game a try it is utterly awesome. This game is a must have of 2008.
