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.

A mario kart game getting a high score while having the same core formula issues? But at the same time, the only near notable release for the wii u, and in comparison to other games released this year would be high scoring...

Also this is GS and tom is reviewing.

So using retinal regurgitation analyst. I will conclude that the score will be 7.

My previous vote was 8/10 before all the stuff was shown, but I'll go and change my vote to 9/10.

Wow we're gonna have reviews 2 weeks early???? That's cool, doesn't really matter to me what the reviews are. I've had it pre ordered for awhile.

Don't matter unless the console sales improve most likely we will never play it.

So does this game have multiplayer online where I can just jump on and race others?

It looks great so 9.0. I know it's bad, but what sold me on it was the free game with purchase. I probably wouldn't of bought it if it wasn't included.

Yes. It also has leagues and tournaments that you can set up.

Question: this games excellent content aside, does anyone think the press will go easy on it because many editors want Nintendo, as a major underdog, to succeed? Just a thought.

I'm saying a 9 here, while there will undoubtedly be 10s and 8s. If you look at the previews there are lots of positives this time around and some will surely call this the "Galaxy" of Kart. So some 10s (AAAA) seem inevitable. Conversely there will be reviewers who praise the game but focus on similarities to past Karts, hence the 8s (AA.)

Overall this game seems to have less flaws and more pros than MK Wii / 7, so high marks seem likely -- I'll be surprised to see many scores in the 7-7.9 (A) range.

From what I understand, Tom McShea is reviewing this.

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

While critical of some games, Tom loved A Link Between Worlds and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze.

Fun fact: Carolyn really liked Tropical Freeze, too.

I was hyping an 8, but after seeing more previews and trailers I'm going to say a 9. It legitimately looks like the best Mario Kart in the series.

I hope it gets 9 or 10, though I don't see it scoring less than an 8 which is still respectable.

Same here iirc. I'm kind of getting risky here and going for higher than what I normally give games. More than half the time I spam 8/10 only because probability wise GS has been handing that out a lot lately.

It HAS to score an 8. It would be the only appropriate thing for the title.

who cares what it scores. Gamespots reviews have been going downhill for a long time. I'm beginning to believe that the bulk of this forum just jumps on a hype train that negates any games Nintendo puts out. It is so easy to see that wiiu is worth it by now. People need to take the time to play some of the great games on wiiu.

8. Says so right in the title. Mario Kart 8, not Mario Kart 9 or Mario Kart AAA...

I'll go with AAA. Just seems like an amazing game from all the trailers and previews I've seen.

In all honesty I dont see GS lowballing it like expand dong freezy pop. I predict an 8 minimum based on how positive their previews have been for it.

Their previews for DK: TF were positive and look what happened there.

On GS or in reality?
On GS 8.
With Tom it would be a 7.
Honest user score more like a 9. They added quite a bit of cool stuff and fixes to an already great working franchise, and it looks and sounds better than ever.

Fair score, not being able to invite friends is a massive let down, two whole points for that alone would be about right. Hopefully Nintendo will patch that, but it is more proof that Nintendo stay in their own bubble.

I'm not shocked it got an 8, it's the only score gamespot gives.
