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.
There is NOT a 2 player splitscreen Grand Prix mode that lets you race through all of the cups in progression with a friend and with all of the computer controlled racers. This game is now worthless to me and I have loved Mario Kart for so many years so this totally sucks. They should have warned people about this because this was the best feature in past Kart games.
Pros: -35 Tracks 35 TRACKS! Okay so your gonna have a couple favorites -So many karts so many characters and many styles of racing to choose from -WIFI is AWESOME it is NOTHING like BRAWL so don't be fooled wii is getting better -Have a family FRIEND'S maybe? It's a perfect game for parties and everything! -The wii wheel is so easy to use a 7 year old could learn how to play. -So many unlockibles to take up your time -YOU CAN AGAINST PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD!!! Cons: -A little too long of loading times between races. -You have to play single player to unlock stuff -They might be missing one or two of your retro favorite tracks (Not any of mine though) -SCREW THE CONS GO BUY IT!!!!! Okay I can't tell you why Mario Kart is so fun other than that it's just so intense online and if you play it alot you learn little tricks from coarse to coarse. There is always something going on when you play any mode pretty much! I get stressed out over racing games and I never found myself throwing down the controller and saying "THIS GAME DUDE" even when I screw up really bad. And oh yeah you can upload your miis. So got 50 bucks and a Wii. Don't waste it on food or feed starving Ethiopian children GO BUY MARIO KART!!!!
