you can beat the blue shell this time... you need to use a mushroom at the last second before the blue shell slams down on you

How was Yoshi driving without his hands in first person? It looks fun but im sorry they ruined balloon battle. I agree with the9thinning that it should be survival and I'm going to miss blowing up balloons and stealing others.

@hotdiddykongAbsolute BS--Please explain to me how anything can save you from a spiny. There are only two conditions. Either A, you have a mushroom which is rare because you'd have to get one in about 4th minimum and then move up with no items as well--Or B, you have to know when your opponent *gets* the shell by the bottom screen feed and then drop back accordingly. Only problem is, if you're really far ahead, dropping back will do way more harm than good, and even then you'd have to be paying attention the very moment that sap in 12th even *gets* the shell in the first place. It is totally unbalanced in every regard--The spiny shell literally *ruins* Mario Kart.

@SoNin360 There's allot of games coming, Mario Kart 7 is just one awesome game, along with Super Mario 3D Land and a few others, it doesnt have to be the game that makes you want to buy a 3DS, if you want to wait, go ahead and wait for that Perfect game that will make you buy it, or buy it for the future titles coming.

Looks awesome and I really want to play it, but not sure if I want to buy a 3DS just for this game...

Hm... judging by Gamespot's recent Nintendo reviews of games, this should get a 6.5 even though it deserves a 8.5. Thats Gamespot.

I would prefer it if Balloon Battle was a survival game instead of a points based game.

@moviequest14 Alright then, 6.5 it is, 7 and 7.5 wont be suprising, anything higher will be a REAL suprise.

They seem to enjoy it but the average rating is 8's so I am guessing with gamespot we will get a 6.5 :P But seriously my guess is somewhere between a 7-8.5.

@nintendo-naut Thats the point, thats the system of the game but if your skilled with the system, you would win regardless if you know how it goes, learn the game.

An awesome Follow up to one of the best Mario Karts(DS), being the best Mario Kart, innovates pretty well to keep it fresh without gimmicks with gliders and water motors giving different paths to BOTH new and Retro courses, Custimizable Karts, Time Trial Ghosts that will push your limit, and Best of all ENHANCED ONLINE MULTIPLAYER, this is good as this game is a top wanted for online multiplayer since Mario Kart DS, with Nintendo stepping up on Online with its Online Community, being able to make your own rules and your own settings INCLUDING Items! And as a bonus, the best 3D looks that DOESNT make it lag! This is just as much, if not, more, improvements to keep Mario Kart fresh like what Modern Warefare 3 did, which means they both deserve the same judgement. Im still expecting a low score cause its Gamespot but if it manages to nail an 8 or higher, then you know its good. If you have a 3DS, DO NOT Skip it, get this game!

After playing Wipeout for many years, this seems slow.

So far I can see, this games getting between 8.5 and 9.5 from reviews. therefore, according to gamespot, this will get a horrible score due to repeated content, and get a 6.5-7.5 score. Either way I'm buying it. So I don't care what you say gamespot.
