Visually exillerating.

User Rating: 8 | Mario Kart 8 Deluxe NS


- graphics look great. Tracks look beautiful, which makes racing exillerating visually.

- smart steering is good for casual players, and kids.

- tricks are fun to do. Ramps were nicely placed to string in multiple trick boosts.

- 200cc introduces drift braking which adds a new dimension to the gameplay.

- a lot of car parts.

- blue shell counter is a great addition.

- you recover more quickly when falling off which keeps the pace.


- unwanted speed boosts from collision with opponents. It makes me fall off the edge sometimes in 200cc. It's completely out of my control because the opponent comes from behind.

- fat characters block my view sometimes

- no way to practice tracks in 200cc tracks. Only option is to split screen, which is lame.

- no button remap makes 200cc awkward, since I have to use Y to accelerate to feel comfortable, but it also requires rewiring. Remap would have been easy fix.

- smart steering should've been off by default. I did the first 7 cups without knowing it was on.
