About this game

Developer: Nintendo EAD
Content Rating: Everyone


Driving up a waterfall or across the ceiling can provide an intense adrenaline rush, but that’s not all anti-gravity is good for. It also provides a wild new gameplay mechanic: if you collide into other racers in zero-g, you’ll earn speed boosts worth bragging about. Luckily, you can upload and share your best moments and watch your friends’ using the all-new Mario Kart TV.* Returning features include 12-player online play*, gliders, underwater racing, motorbikes, and custom karts. You can even race as Bowser’s seven minions, the Koopalings!

It's "Mario Kart." There's really not much else you need to know. If you're never played it, you should, though I can't speak to how this entry compares with others in the series (other than "Mario Kart 64"!). This game will keep you playing off and on, but probably won't be a go-to when friends aren't around.

This newest iteration, with its tightly balanced gameplay, giant content offering and lush visuals and audio, will have you and yours screaming, cursing and cheering through countless hours of play.

It’s still one of the best in the business when it comes to multiplayer experiences, something we’ve all come to expect from the Mario Kart series

Despite an unfortunate change to its battle mode, MK8 is a solid extra lap on a series with a great foundation. The gravity-shifting sections spliced into existing and new tracks feel like a natural extension of the series rather than a gameplay-changing revelation, but it's a strong complement to an already enjoyable experience.
