There is no denying the fact that Mario Kart is one of the most prestigious gaming series in the industry. The latest Mario Kart 8 certainly reminded us of how great the game really is.
In this latest sequel, the gameplay gets some major improvements from Nintendo. The game developer tuned Mario Kart 8 to bring the best out of it. On top of that, the gameplay is built to enhance the racing experience as it optimizes the Wii U entirely.
In truth, Mario Kart 8 is so precise that there can just be nothing wrong with it. After some thorough digging up, there are some things that should have been improved on. To start with, the wide track made things a walk in the park for the players. On top of that, the on-air racing has nothing special about it as handling is the same as it is on the ground.
The common complaint with the Mario Kart 8 is it being a repetitive game. But what do gamers expect? True, for the eight times, nothing new has been brought upon the series. If Nintendo pushes the game to its full potential, Mario Kart 8 will certainly be a magnet pulling the gamers to purchase the Wii U.
It is still not too late to salvage Mario Kart 8. Nintendo can introduce a DLC that can cover up the dull features in the game. On top of that, the game developer should add in more customization option for the players to get more personal with Mario Kart 8.
As a quick round-up, what you need to know about this game is that Mario Kart 8 is the first Mario Kart title to come to the Wii U and although it doesn’t look like it’ll reinvent the kart racing genre, it should bring some life to the struggling Nintendo console.
What’s immediately different about Mario Kart 8 is the anti-gravity feature, which will see your little kart gain hover thrusters when you drive over certain pads. You’ll then be able to drive up walls and on the ceiling as well, transforming the tracks into twisting ribbons of mayhem.
