Like most people, I bought a Wii U for the New Smash Bros, Zelda, Animal Crossing and so on. And I've been anxiously awaiting this games arrival for a long time, as I pre-ordered is the second it was available on amazon. The last game I can say I truly enjoyed on the Wii U, was Super Mario 3D World, and boy am I glad the wait for a new great game is over.

This game is AMAZING! I've played every entry since double dash and have loved each one equally since, as they all brought new ideas to the table. Mario Kart 8 takes the reigns as my favorite title in the series though, no question! This has got to be THE best racing game Nintendo has ever created. It's so much more tasty and rich than the ones before it.

I'm gonna keep this review short and sweet though since I haven't played the game to its entirety just yet (I got it couple of hours ago) I've just been seeing troll reviews here on amazon, and i feel like someone's gotta save the day! Haha

So first off, the gamepad controls for this game feel very nice. Being used to the wii remote, I was surprised at how natural the conversion felt. I prefer using the analog sticks opposed to the gamepad's gyroscope though. The gamepad is just a little too big to be leaning back and forth!:/ I also like how they incorporated the gamepads screen into the game. If you're playing on the T.V. you can easily switch to gamepad-only mode with the touch of a button, there's also another little button you can press to see where everyone is on the track! Very convenient! Some people may complain that the gamepad screen isn't being used enough, but come on, lets be honest... There's not much you can do with the gamepad in this game. You're racing! You want to keep your eye's on ONE screen!

Next, the graphics.

The new levitation and under-water parts are as smooth as one would expect. There wasn't much of a learning curve. The new tracks, karts, and characters are all wonderful additions plus there are returning favorites. If you liked Mario Kart in the past, this is another fantastic entry into the series.

Additionally, the game looks gorgeous in full HD with 1080p at 60f/s. There are little attentions to detail around every turn. The new courses honor thwomps and other secondary characters in creative ways that feel right.

Unlike Sonic all-star racing, this game was easy to pick up and play from the start. You will probably win your first cup on your first try, but it gets harder. Sonic gave me control issues that required too much unnecessary skill and practice before I even started to make some headway in the game.

The gamepad is integrated well into the game, not forcing anything unneeded, but providing extra awesome. My favorite was to have the track displayed so I could check where the other karts were on the map.

That brings me to the new battle. I think the change is awesome. You can battle in one-player mode with customizable settings on the real tracks. There were full sets of karts for the one-player battle, so I don't know if multiplayer will feel space, but single player did not.

This is going to be the go-to party game. It appeared to be pretty flawless so I thank Nintendo for putting the extra effort in. Hopefully there are surprises too, for when I get more time to play further in the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just had 13 people over at my house June 1, 2014
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
And we were able to play Mario Kart 8 nonstop for about 7 hours. There aren't too many games that can create that much replayability and fun for that long for that 13 people ranging from ages 11 to 45. It's a must-buy if you have a Wii U and is good enough that, as long as you have people to play with, it's worth buying the system just to play this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defying Gravity (And Expectations) May 31, 2014
Format:Video Game
Today's gaming marketplace demands innovation. Personally, I don't innovation is entirely necessary in all aspects of game development, yet there's a large number of people crying for "next-gen" games like entitled children. These people want lifelike graphics that pull them into the experience, and new gameplay that's unlike anything they've ever seen before. Never mind the fact that something entirely lifelike is pretty much impossible and things that get close would dip extremely into the uncanny valley, and that if every game played in some new, crazy way, less people would feel compelled to buy them out of fear of not being able to access them as easily. Yet publishers still trot out games with all of these features... at least, you know, games that promise to have these features. The hype builds, people preorder, the game's released and it's completely ordinary, but you're so convinced that you're playing something new and "next-gen" that you're blind to any criticisms, and by the time you realize you've been playing almost the exact same kind of game for years, it's too bloody late and the publisher has your money lining their fat pockets. Ah, the modern game industry in a nutshell.

What does this rant have to do with Nintendo's latest entry in their uniformly fun racing franchise? Actually, it has everything to with it. See, the current AAA landscape is reliant on smoke and mirrors. Pretty trailers get released at E3 or some other big gaming expo, with cherry-picked footage that's nowhere even close to indicative of what the final product is going to look like. Still, people preorder this game as soon as they see one trailer, just so they can get in on whatever arbitrary reward the publisher is going to hand their loyal little lapdogs.
