UK publication EDGE has reviewed Mario Kart 8 and has awarded the game an great score of 9/10. The publication says that the game is as essential to Wii U owners as Super Mario 3D World is. You can read some bits, below.
“Even 2011′s effervescent 3DS outing, Mario Kart 7, feels somewhat lifeless by comparison, the new HD visuals are gorgeous, but Nintendo has also built on 7′s neatly interlaced mechanics and introduced a nuanced handling model to create the greatest Mario Kart yet.”
“The Mario Kart series’ battle arenas were designed to funnel players into each other, but now you’ll spend long stretches of time without even catching sight of a potential target as you trek round the circuit.”
“But even this isn’t enough to detract from an otherwise-joyous follow-up to the series’ excellent 3DS outing. That it offers as much of its own innovation again speaks volumes; Mario Kart 8 is as essential a purchase as Super Mario 3D World.”
What a shocker…Mario Kart is a good game? I never would have guessed that. Look at the history of the past games. They are always good. Though what is shocking is that its the UK saying it’s good…they aren’t exactly big supporters of Nintendo over there.
