Poll: 24 hours left, what will Mario kart 8 score? (113 votes)

There are 24 hours left to the Mario kart 8 review embargo getting lifted- it's our last chance to guess what this game will score here on Gamespot. Starting tomorrow, there will only be damage control, one way or the other.

So, what do you all think this game will score on here? Me, as much as I know this won't happen realistically speaking, I will stand by my earlier prediction of 10/10 AAAAE.

Come at me, bros.

AAA.

I say 9/10 no game should be or can be perfect.

Didn't you already made a hype thread?

I want it to flop to crush your dreams! >:)

A 10/10 does not mean a game is 'perfect.'

10/10 saviour of the Wii U Iwata redeemed

AAAE is my vote.


#10 Posted by _Matt_ (8937 posts) -

I'll be surprised if it doesn't score AAA

There's always one.

#16 Posted by AutoPilotOn (8551 posts) -

@AutoPilotOn: well either way I say 9/10 to leave head room. It will be great I am sure. It kind of has to be for nintendos sake..

Trust me, it's doing all sorts of things to my OCD right now.

#18 Edited by slaves (1306 posts) -

8 maybe a 9

I feel you. I'm obsessed with grammar too. :P

I'm throwing a Mario Kart 8 party on the 30th that's going all weekend. (I'm sure we will be doing plenty of other things but Mario Kart 8 will be played a lot.) A 70" and 65" TV and 2 Wii U's side by side in my basement. I'm pretty excited. My siblings and circle of friends are pretty into Mario Kart.

#21 Posted by Xaero_Gravity (8897 posts) -

I'm not a big fan of the series, but I understand that I'm in the minority there and this definitely looks like the best one yet so I'm expecting a 9.

#22 Posted by PonchoTaco (2219 posts) -

AAAAE for the lulz.

#23 Edited by charizard1605 (58856 posts) -

From what I understand, Tom McShea is reviewing this.

#24 Edited by Seabas989 (10542 posts) -

AA.

If it's Tom then I have no idea.

Oh shit. He is very critical of Nintendo. It's gonna flop if he is reviewing it.

#26 Edited by Senor_Kami (8433 posts) -

AAE - 8.

Mario Kart is also like his favorite franchise I believe.

#28 Edited by DaBrainz (7682 posts) -

I won't know until I play it. I don't give a hoot what gamespot says.

#29 Posted by SolidGame_basic (18359 posts) -

I saw the game in person last year when they were showcasing it at Best Buys. It will get good scores mostly out of solid production values. But will it be a revolution? Not really.

#30 Edited by nintendoboy16 (27230 posts) -

AE or lower. I mean, despite the high reviews and ratings DK: TF and SS got on other sites, expect GS to review it lower.

Just remembered I hyped it at AA in the hype thread... oh well.

Carolyn and Mark Walton are the same way.

Below AE.

The Good: Comes with a free game

The Bad: LolMarioKart

#33 Posted by FreedomFreeLife (2621 posts) -

9.5/10

Best racing game of last 5 years

#34 Edited by Demonjoe93 (9672 posts) -

GameSpot will slap it with a 7 or less and call it a rehash, and then give Advanced Warfare no less than a 8 in November.

But the Wii U is so underpowered and games look like PS2 era :(

#36 Posted by Zassimick (6769 posts) -

AAAAE. Grandparents am cry.

#37 Posted by 35cent (918 posts) -

I'll put 20 quid on an 8.

#38 Posted by speedfreak48t5p (8512 posts) -

10/10. Best game ever.

Poor cows, hermits, and lemmings won't get to play this masterpiece.

#39 Posted by Kaze_no_Mirai (11489 posts) -

I'm gonna say an 8.

#40 Edited by Ballroompirate (23279 posts) -

If it's by Tom, an 8 is a given.

#41 Posted by sHaDyCuBe321 (4165 posts) -

Hyped 10/10 for the lulz as well.

Realistically, this being GS, it'll score a 7.

#42 Posted by super600 (30807 posts) -

AAAE

The only thing that can hurt this game is the battle mode.

#43 Edited by jhonMalcovich (4937 posts) -

No early reviews, then a flop. I say a 7.

It is an early review. It's early by a full 15 days :|

#45 Posted by benleslie5 (7899 posts) -

I would say between an 8 or a 9/10

#46 Posted by AppleFan1991 (3111 posts) -

I'm really feeling a 9 for this. So like a 6 on the McShea scale

#47 Edited by kemar7856 (11507 posts) -

#48 Posted by Locutus_Picard (3981 posts) -

AAAE

Unless it's Mcshea...

#49 Edited by RR360DD (12124 posts) -

Gonna say 9. I hope it scores 9

#50 Posted by PS4hasNOgames (1771 posts) -

it will score a 1% increase in wii u sales. I haven't seen a single commercial for MK8, nobody even knows it's out. the last time i saw a wii u commercial was 2013.
