Mario Kart Wii (Wii)

 

One may wonder why Nintendo would add motorcycles and dirt bikes to the game series that popularized, if not invented, the genre of weapons-based go-kart racing. If you're one of the fans who balked at the inclusion of two-wheeled vehicles, a midair...

Amazingly fun gameplay ; Wii-Wheel is solid ; Online/Multiplayer better than ever

The cheap AI is still there ; Retro tracks feel boring compared to new ones

Tight, precise motion functionality ; Mii integration both racing, and throughout race courses ; Amazing online play for a Wii title

Mario Kart Wii literally puts you behind the wheel for more fast paced racing fun

Although the game hasn't evolved much in the last fifteen years it still tends to fall into the "don't fix what isn't broken" category. It's a fast and fun racing game that is easy enough for beginners to pick up and enjoy while still a challenge for...

Start your engines and shine up those red shells because it's Mario Kart time all over again!

Find out whether the world really needs another Mario Kart game.

Great local and online multiplayer racing ; Bikes and tricks fit smoothly into the formula ; New track designs are creative and more dynamic

Missing features from, and less balanced than, previous games ; Lacks any personality or true affiliation with other Mario games ; Grand Prix mode is an absolute mess

People with a different opinion from me should be arrested, so you should modify that.
