    Mario Kart 7

    In the Grand Prix mode, there are eight cups comprised of four races, each playable in 50cc, 100cc or 150cc classes. The number increases difficulty and overall speed of the karts. Once you complete 150cc, Mirror Mode is... Read Full Review

    Good old Mario Kart, nothing more, nothing less.

    Good thing this release has the number on the name because, frankly, after Double Dash I simply lost count. Mario Kart seems stuck in time for all the good and bad reasons anyone could think of. There's little to no roo... Read Full Review

    What happened 7?

    This game made me so sad cause they ruined so many courses and some of their new ones are creative but annoying. And Metal Mario & Honey Queen? Why just why nintendo? How about Diddy Kong or someone else. But the ga... Read Full Review

    Mario Kart 7- meh.

    Contrary to popular opinion, I don't think Mario Kart 7 is anything special. Although it would be unfair to say that it is a 'bad' game, I just don't think it is that good, and isn't really worth your time. I don't thin... Read Full Review

    One of Gaming's Greatest Franchises is back and BETTER than ever! :D

    Mario Kart 7 - A very late review

    When it comes down to it, Mario Kart 7 is just what we all have come to expect from such a well established franchise. A great atmosphere, awesome gameplay, the familiar art direction, nintendo-tier music and what we lov... Read Full Review

    Don't hit the brakes at the Finish LINE

    I don't drink anymore. Well, almost never. I'm not exactly sure why I stopped. If I had to point my finger at something I'd probably point it at the fact that I've also stopped "going out." There's no point anymore. I'd ... Read Full Review

    It may not revolutionize the genre, but does it really have to?

    This game is amazing. The track designs are perfect, allowing secret shortcuts, including great obstacles, and generally excelling, and the 3D effect couldn't be better. Those who've played mario kart before know to expe... Read Full Review
