The quintessence of the Mario Kart series, since Mario Kart Wii


  • Great racing mechanics
  • Very low-level learning curve
  • The character roster is huge and amazing.
  • The stage selection is large and appeals to all fans of the series. (and others too!) Some stages even appear from other franchises!
  • Customization is easy and provides players with the feel of designing a race-car to win. It offers players the choice to cut-down some aspects of the car to improve on others.
  • The battle mode and online parts are decent (as compared to other Nintendo online services)


  • The game feels very bland and repetitive after a while. Especially for the players who do not have a paid subscription to Nintendo Switch Online and for players who do not play with anyone else locally.
  • Aside from a few quality of life improvements, the game doesn't feel too different from Mario Kart 8.
  • The roster is largely the same as the previous game and doesn't have any new characters added to it.
  • The game largely feels like a port rather than a sequel which, technically that is what it is supposed to be, but it upsets many fans, especially the ones who already own Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U

Nonetheless, this game is one of, if not the best Mario Kart game to date and should be there on every switch.

It’s a little bit hard and it is a Mario game

10/10 a classic

Mario kart 8 deluxe has some of the most incredible tracks in the series history, and though their is a bit less content than I was hoping for, what you get is absolutely worth picking up. Let me start by talking about the single player content that this game provides. First of all, their is a Grand Prix mode where you race against bots and try to get first place. Their is also a time trial mode where you try to beat your best times. But for single players, that’s pretty much it. Where this game shines is in its multiplayer. Playing together with a group of friends in this game is unlike anything else in any other video game I’ve played. It’s super fun and competitive, and you will loose track of time while together with others. Next, I want to talk about it’s online mode. It’s just like the grand prix mode, but this time you are racing against actual people. I would recommend playing this mode if you got rewarded when you ranked up, but you don’t. So, their is pretty much no reason to play online unless you really want more Mario kart. To sum everything up, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has excellent gameplay, but not enough of it. What you get is a great multiplayer game, but a lack luster single player game. So if you are planning on playing this with others, I couldn’t recommend it enough. But if you are alone, their are better games you can get for your money.

It’s definitely an improvement since Mario Kart 7. It has way more items, characters, karts (wheels and gliders), and tracks. And, I think it goes without saying that the graphics are way better in Mario Kart 8 (Wii U and Switch). It’s also funny to get revenge on friends and family members (siblings) by beatings them ;).

This game is so much fun and was the first game I got for the Switch. Only problem keeps happening: Nintendo servers seem to be laggy and disruptive sometimes and it would be nice to play online with others without dealing with lag. But, all on all, it is one of the best Mario kart game titles.
