Great family arcade style game.,
This review is from: Mario Kart Wii with Wii Wheel (Video Game)
I have never owned a Mario Kart before so can't compare to the other versions but this one for the Wii is a fun game. I was worried before I bought that the Wii wheel would not work very well. I was way wrong, I think it works very well.
The tracks and game play are a lot of fun for someone of any age. The game is easy to learn for beginners and is fun for the more experienced gammer. The game reminds me of something you would play at an arcade with all kinds of things going on as you drive through the course. Playing against friends is a lot of fun a well.
I tried out the on line play and it was a blast. I just had fun compared to some of the xbox/ps3 on line racing games where it can be stressful trying to compete and listening to angry 13 year olds.
If you are looking for a game that is fun for the family, especailly the kids, I would pick this one up. Its easy to learn and a lot of fun to play.

My son is autistic and I was looking for something that would give him some measure of independence, and another parent of an autistic child highly recommended this. It is one of the best toys I have ever bought for him! At first I had to do this hand over hand with him, but he quickly got the hang of it. He loves choosing the vehicle, character and race and has gradually improved so he can do everything himself. It improves his fine-motor coordination, concentration and independence. He spent three hours playing this independently today!!

I love Wii! It was used as a rehab tool after I broke my back 3 years ago. I learned to Bowl sitting down in an armed chair ; with my back brace on...and bowled with BOTH hands! My back muscles on both sides got strong and today I am fine! I got one for myself and laugh hysterically while 'riding the cows' in Wii PLAY! You have to play to believe how much you laugh trying to ride A COW!!! I still bowl with both hands, but now I can stand and play! Thank you! Wii!
