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.

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

My new favorite MarioKart


I love how the perspective changes. You can be driving along and suddenly you're on the ceiling or something. Online multi-player is a blast. This game makes buying a wii-u worth it. I wasn't too crazy about playing with the pad at first, but now it's...
