Everything about this game is awesome.

  • from Canada


The new DLC(download content) is awesome. New tracks and characters rock. The game will continually be added to and improved...if you can get any better. Mario Kart 8 is fun for all ages.

  • from Ajax, ON

Mario Kart Great!

Been playing for hours. A lot of fun. HD graphics look amazing. Redesign of retro courses is awesome. Definitely worth getting.

  • from Toronto, ON

Mario Kart is even better in HD

Have played all the games in the Mario Kart series and this is definitely my most favourite since Mario Kart 64. The Grand Prix mode is the best ever. Only downside is that they got rid of the arenas for battle mode.

Best Kart yet

This game is a great bit of fun and feels more balanced than previous titles. Love the level designs first and foremost. Controls great with pro controller or gamepad. Plenty of challenges if you'll play on 150cc. Great game for 4 people in living room Buy the system bundle and enjoy your new Wii U. It's definitely pulling me away from my other next get system for pure fun.

  • from Whitby, ON

Best game yet

I really enjoy playing this game because of the way it brings family and friends closer and how it seems like your playing something different like how it's the first time you can glide on a home console with the wii remote. it is especially fun when your playing with your friends and family. This could probably win family game of the year.

Mario Kart (Wii U)

Great game to play with your kids

  • from Kingston, ON

No brainier!

We've waited a long time for this game to be available on the WiiU and it was def worth the wait! The promotion for a free game when you register the game makes this purchase a no brainer - go get it before the free game promo ends.

Mario Kart 8

Great game, Excellent Tracks, I great game for anybody who has a Wii U or want an excuse to get one.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Nintendo is about fun

Although not a powerhouse the Wii U still pulls out fun games Like Mario Kart 8. Awesome game recommend.

  • from Halifax, NS

Great Game

Great great game. Graphics so much better.

  • from Calgary, AB

So good

I play this game with my gf and she beats me... Not physically but I get emotionally hurt when that blue shell hits me in 1st place or when I get a freakin coin in 5th place. I highly recommend Mario kart to people in stable relationships!

  • from Calgary , AB

Fun game

I've been waiting since the wii u came out for this game to be released and I'm not disappointed. Very fun game!

  • from Edmonton, AB

Amazing gameplay!

This game is perfect for almost everyone! The gameplay is faster and more frantic than ever before, online play is slick, and there is a nice variety of difficulties. It is a game that anyone could pick up and enjoy, from a child or non-gamer to an experienced racer who will find mastery of the game very challenging. Anyone who says this game is too easy has not played on the higher difficulties or attempted to beat staff ghosts! Plus, playing online will give you real life competition. What this game is best at is gameplay that is pure fun!

  • from Toronto, ON

We need more games like this Nintendo!

Another great installment for Mario Kart. Graphics and game play is superb! Grab the game, get a few friends to come over, and have fun with Mario Kart.

  • from Coquitlam BC

great game. worth getting Wii u just for this game

this is a great game. Nintendo has really outdone themselves with this release. I just hope they keep the content coming it is a shame there are so few really good games for the Wii u

Just an ok game...

This game is over hyped. Not the best Mario Kart game out there. They made this game too easy. Wider tracks, and when you fall off the track the cloud thing picks you up within 1 second you're back on the track. The rainbow road in this game is a huge let down from previous games. To short... The anti gravity thing now that you can do in this game is just terrible. The character selection a huge disappointment from the baby peach to baby Mario and characters no one cares about. The weapons such as the new horn will stop a blue shell from hitting you. What's the point of the blue shell now if they're not going to make that weapon powerful?? The battle mode is a huge let down..... If you are a casual and want to play an easy racing game than this is for you. I noticed they targeted casuals and mainly kids. This is better than the Wii version.. Again I just think it's over hyped.... If you want a great Mario Kart game...... Stick with the Ds version.

Best racing game EVER

No other racing game will ever be as fun as Mario Kart. You can literally sit there for hours and not notice the time fly by because of how fun this game is. Online play is also very smooth. This is one of those game you can always go back to when you're bored with you other games.

  • from Saskatoon, SK

Kids and myself are enjoying

Bought it after my kids ask me to do so BUT they are winning each level with extreme ease which is not ideal

  • from Longueuil, QC

Awesome game - Must buy !!!

Awesome game all the way. Graphics are off the hook, gameplay and controls are spot on and great thing about this game is that anybody (from beginners to expert players) can play it and have tons of fun. Great online features (you can make up tournaments, can also participate in custom races,...) Definitely worth it. Only negative is the battle mode (on tracks instead of stadium) of which, to me, is totally insignificant!

  • from Toronto, ON

Best game of this generation!!!

This is the best Mario Kart ever made and, until now, it's the best game of this generation! Lots of fun! The only problem if you buy this game is that you will not be able to turn of your video game, because it's highly addictive!!! Obs: It contains awesome online features!

  • from Winnipeg, MB
