Mario Kart 8 (Wii U) Review


The eighth entry in the Mario Kart franchise has been released for the Wii U! But can anti-gravity help freshen up the formula? 411's Adam Larck checks in with his full review!

Among The Sleep


Childlike\r\nimagination is generally considered a happy, wondrous thing. Krillbite\'s\r\nfirst-person horror game turns this expectation on its head, tossing players\r\ninto the psyche of a child coping with a turbulent family life. Among\r\nthe Sleep...

My favorite thing about Mario Kart 8's soundtrack isn't the music itself, but how the music is built into each of the game's 32 race tracks.

3. You cannot play against AI online with your friends. You can, however, play split screen online, or set up tournaments to invite your friends to.

Borderlands 2


When it comes to handheld ports, “just like the original, but smaller” is usually the highest praise you can expect to see. That may not sound like a high bar to clear, but as Borderlands 2 on Vita illustrates, much can be lost in the...

Mario Kart 8 Review (Wii U)


Do you really need another Mario Kart? After appearing on every significant Nintendo system since 1992, most gamers likely own at least one Mario Kart cartridge, disc or eShop download

Mario Kart 8


It doesn't reinvent the Kart wheel, but who cares when it's this much fun?

Classic Mario Kart gameplay ; Anti-grav tracks add vertiginous new twists ; Unbeatable line-up of characters and courses ; Superb cartoon graphics ; Excellent online play

Some minor balance issues ; Can’t switch racers without leaving online session

There are some minor balancing issues and a few minor niggles, but this is a storming Mario Kart, with the pedal to the metal and the rev counter up beyond the redline.

Mario Kart 8 review


Nintendo stuns us with the best Mario Kart yet.

This is Nintendo at its very best, putting on a masterclass of multiplayer gaming, both online and off. We’re well past suggesting this is the game that makes the Wii U worthwhile (there have been plenty already), but this is the one that will appeal...

Mario Kart 8 Review


It may just be more Mario Kart, but that continues to be no bad thing.

Still the best kart racer around ; Local multiplayer is untouchable ; Majority of new tracks are great

Some poor retro track choices

A fantastic game for everybody!


I know it has taken me a while since release of the game to write this review, but darn it! It was because this game is so good that I had trouble prying myself off of my sofa then to my computer to type this up for you all. I really do love this game...

Racing Mario is HD! A lot of fun, friends and family bonding

A true evolution in a series known for incremental upgrades


Mario Kart 8 is the most magical game in the series to date, and I say that as someone who has played every game in the series except Super Circuit. If you've seen any of the advertising for this game, you already know that the main attraction of the...

anti-gravity, stunning HD graphics, online multiplayer, vivid levels

limited battle mode, slightly above-average load times
