    Really great game! Unbelievably how beautiful it can be, even though the console is not really powerful. In single player and with a friend, it's amazing at 60 fps. Do not suffer from a dew that the resolution is 720p. However, a sensible battle mode lacks and the fps drops to 30 when there are 3-4 players.

    Must buy DLC for 120 SEK. The game is well suited to the Wii U controller. But otherwise this is a great Mario Kart games.

    Ridiculously beautiful game with epic music to the Wii U and floats on very well. There are plenty of characters and tracks, and parts to choose for their map / bike. Multiplayer works pretty well but can often lay when it is peer-2-peer connections.

    The lowered rating comes when I am a competitive player. Coins have återimplementerats as objects and make first place a nightmare to be. Enables now a banana peel, shell or the like so they are lagging behind so one can no longer pick up a new when it does not disappear until you drop it or it gets hit by something.

    Battle Mode is also relatively crappy done when there is exclusive tracks for it without using the already available which are huge.

    A party game in my eyes. Mario Kart Wii and 7 are the ones I will play tävligsmässigt.

    At last, Mario Kart become good again! Best Mario Kart late 16bitars variant ...

    I bought the Wii U in principle -enbart- for I saw Super Mario Kart 8 demonstrated at Media Markt, I been totally blown away. It just slapped and then I went home with everything, have never been happier. The game keeps for weeks, months, all the console's lifespan.

    Clearly a fun Mario Cart. Just like most other Mario Cart, I think also that this delivers. Awesome graphics and fun courses.

    Is much to do in the game quite easily. Nice that Nintendo has online support for the game so you can play online too.

    With this Mario Cart Nintendo has renewed game series and made it more "contemporary" while has managed to keep it nice that has always existed in Mario Cart.

    Is very like e good about this game!

    Go feeling in the game.
    Fun webs.
    Very easy to play with the Wii U pad. Sat on the toilet several times o played mario kart!

    Beyond expectation!

    A little less:
    Do not think there is a shop for it, much less to the e asdyrt to buy them. The three characters with various courses cost 80 bucks is pretty expensive (package of 120), but given that the game costs 500 new if no less today when I review it's a little too big bucks for a couple of characters.

    Battle is not as good as N64.

    Update:
    Short little line, just battle, works really well and is really fun. However, very poor variety of courses (4 pieces)

    Mario Kart 8's have a place in every Wii U owner's game collection. Blast, especially if you are a few pieces of the sofa :) Additionally works on-line game good for those times you're by yourself and want to have more than computer opponents.

    This is essentially just a new Mario Kart Wii. One could call it Mario Kart Wii 3 (Mario Kart 7 is the 2nd). There is nothing new that is particularly revolutionary. But a new Mario Kart Wii is not bad. As such, they have fine-tuned the series a bit, but also made some misses.

    What could have been revolutionary is the use of gamepad, but Nintendo did not come up with anything so it is only used to play without the TV, show the map or honk. Allowing a player to play on Gamepadskärmen and one on the TV screen, they have not even been able to get to. It all becomes very flat.

    Unlike Mario Kart 7 is the new tracks good and they have managed to make the sliders and the ability to run under the water makes sense, a little thanks to the anti-gravity. There are new fun and cool karts and bikes, but the character list has some flaws. Pink Gold Peach? Clones are not funny. Why not make them into costumes instead and give more space for unique characters. Are a lot of us lack. However, it is fun to koop negotiations are with!

    Battle mode has been updated rules are absolutely amazing but for some reason they were not able to do some courses for this position. Instead, they use the same lines as for the race. It could have been so good!

    Online mode, they have managed to grind a little extra for the 7 and it works fine. They recognize themselves, yet a bit more then the last time.

    Miiverse they have managed to get through that you can upload videos and spöktider. Unfortunately, you can not edit the movies so much, so it's not particularly fun to upload something. There is little to work with there. And it's a bit so the game is experienced in all, there is more they could have done.

    The worst and the reason for my low rating, however, the DLC packages that have been announced. It's really funny that they made it possible for the DLC, but why not do something useful with it? , They have decided to now mix their ranges wildly and release a Zelda-packet and an Animal Crossing packets. Totally sick!

    Zelda and Mario Kart is really not a good mix, they do not match. The idea that Link should be on Mr. Scooty (a dorky scooter like bike, which I personally like very much) and turn around because he was driving on a banana peel that Toad has thrown behind him makes you want to laugh. But when you remember that it is an official Nintendo product and not just a fan-made joke, begins to cry. Why do you do such a thing? It is so far from Zelda and Mario are not brand exhausted so that it is forced to fetch things from a different brand?

    Come on! You have two games in the Mario brand is soon to come out, Yoshi's Wolly World and Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker. Why did not you two packets of them as a theme?

    No, this is bad and really not acceptable.

    This game is a must if you own a Wii U console. Must be the best game ever. When you have won in all courses in the 50, 100 and 150cc you also get access to the trails backwards. How cool any time to play online o Moreover, no extra charge for online play. You will automatically receive 1,000 points when you start online o win / lose points depending on how well you do in the races. One also sees the opponents score and can also select previous opponents in a menu where you see who's online.
    Can not really recommend this game whether you are young or old.

    Gruesomely fun game, especially when you play together with your friends / family. Incredibly delicious graphics and great difficulty, especially 150cc. What I miss is a greater variety in the range of characters, this Nintendo should see and learn from the SSB games.

    Hysterically funny! Play by yourself or friends settle the max gaming fun anyway! Bought 3 copies so I can play online with my sisters! Do you have a Wii U, this is a must!
    More difficult than the Wii version, but even so, my girlfriend is better at this than on the Wii. More sense of speed compared to the Wii version. Although fluency and graphics are incredibly improved!

    Mario Kart 8 is a fantastic game! This is an incredibly beautiful game for all ages. The game has a very balanced difficulty. There are three classes, 50cc, 100cc and 150cc, 50cc which is a bit slower and easier, where 150cc is faster and much harder.

    * Graphics and Design: This game is incredibly beautiful! I have a PS4 with most games and none of PS4s game comes close to Mario Kart 8s graphic design. PS4 has MUCH more muscle than the Wii U, but this game is flowing at 60 frames per second, with beautiful colors and amazing tracks.
    10/10

    * Sound: Very good sound quality with lots of little details. Music has several new but also redesigned retro Mario Kart tracks.
    10/10

    * Gameplay: It's easy to get started. But to play teacher 150cc, it requires much training. You must learn to "to zone", make perfect starts, jump and be tactical with your weapons. What I miss, is the classic "battle" tracks. But hopeful, they come in an update. Online feature works perfectly. But no audio chat.
    Fantastic fun to play 2-4 players simultaneously on the same screen!
    9/10

    It is absolutely worth buying a Wii U just for this game!

    Have played it daily since on 30 / 5th

    What are you waiting for!? BUY!

    Why can just bananas, green shells and coins when you lead?
    Otherwise very funny but somewhat poorly balanced with the objects.
    Located man 5a or 6a, one can expect to get 3-4 hits on the last lap, leading man you do not get a star or the cannon and the blue shell will just as surely as a package from DHL.

    Enormously good. Best map game I played (even Sonic all star racing). What makes it great is three things:
    * It is extremely well balanced. It does not feel like there's something distracting or unnecessary elements in it like Mario kart Wii could have. If you drive by, you become uppp tempted quickly. The items you pick up feels thoughtful and well established.
    * The courses are hugely innovative. Man running up and down. Man running through walls of water. Man glidflygger and can even wax itself in less shortcuts eg on a path should be eg bounce on a geyser of sand to access a shortcut that is raised.
    * The graphics are top notch. May well be the best looking game out now.

    Excellent game signer Nintendo. The magic in many different ways. The graphics are great and fluency as well! The single player mode is entertaining when there is much to unlock and win. Multiplayer modes are fantastic as well - really entertaining to play multi-player! The only downside is, perhaps, the "Battle" mode that has no dedicated arenas anymore but conventional courses where they fight each other. Funny, but I had yet seen "Battle" mode was designed as it was before.

    Do you have a Wii U should get Mario Kart 8. Unless you have a Wii U should buy the console with Mario Kart 8.

    The more you play the better it gets. Did not like it so impressed the first hour or so, but now I'm stuck.
    Fun to play with buddies, family or online against friends or someone from the other side of the earth. Neat. Good move gives the sensation of speed.
    Works also great to run on only gamepad on the TV is busy.
    Buy.

    WoW! The best Mario Kart game in the series. Have played constantly now for 3 days and have as much fun each time. Played with friends and online. We really had a fun time.

    The graphics are so incredibly comfortable and beautiful! Floats on without notch. 60 FPS. Even with 2 players.

    Online feature worked error free and play with 11 other players are really fun and difficult!
    Think I never liked so many paths in this game. Have several favorites.

    Works really good to play with a Pro controller too.

    I hope Wii U sales take off in earnest now.

    BONUS! Do not forget that you get one extra game for free when you buy Mario Kart 8 now. Read more at nintendo.se

    Really great game! Felt that Nintendo really needed to get this title for the Wii U now so it has more powerful set of games. Have just minus in this game.

    - Lap times? Can not see the "best lap time" or how fast you run your course. Just in "Time Trials".

    - Retro courses. They are an original design but with remastered graphics and slight modifications.

    - New Rainbow road. Not at all the same "spirit" expended on the track this time.

    Otherwise, everything else is great! BUY NOW.

    There you go then, Mario Kart 8 is finally here. The game as it has been talked about for several years now for the Wii U. When it arrives, it could not come at a more appropriate time. Nintendo really needed to get this game now. When the game now finally arrived, it is thought to be "Wii U" s savior - the one that will get the console to start selling! All do like Mario Kart, right?
    Response jaaaaa!
    It's amazing gameplay in this mainly because it's very polished graphics and extremely good flow of the game. How good and still floating on a big TV, I have never before experienced!
    The new track feels good and they rely heavily on running on walls, in water, in the air, etc. It feels like a Mario Kart with extra arcade elements!
    What makes this feel arcade is that it is more high-octane than ever! Concrete example is when you fall down a precipice so you will very quickly on their feet. The new objects are explosionsartiga and with 12 people running it will be like to the chaos they want =). This is, of course, for better or worse. But MAN gets a lot of Mario Kart style - and that's what you want if you buy this game! Should you have racing without chaos, one can stick to Forza Motorsport or similar.

    + Extremely stylish graphics
    + Troubled good flow of the game.
    + Occasionally many new influences to go on walls as the primary.
    + Many characters and can combine their karts / bikes in many ways.
    + Extra eventful and more balanced objects than before.
    + Many new fun NEW maps.
    + Do I need to mention how cool and fun this game works when you have friends over on the couch?

    + Works great online racing (12 pers Racar first in goals). Quick to find people then you are running BUT
    - Battle with balloons running on the regular courts. Really boring. What happened to the Block fortress o the other specialized courses for this game mode? So needless to destroy this game mode Nintendo! Jaja. After all, racing is the most fun anyway. But still.
    - Retro courses is actually not the best from the older games. Feels like they have taken the worse the paths from the older games in this. Maybe for the best given to other games before? Despite all good courses but could always have been better =).
    - Some courses are too short. In particular, Rainbow Road, what happened to it? It's really short and 'new retro variant.

    As always, you can always wish for more. Eg more courses, more statistics in the game, etc. Even a game mode from Double Dash which was two paragraphs in a map would have been a fun influence if one could choose if they wanted to.

    In short:
    This is not a masterpiece in the vein of eg Super Mario 3D world. But it's at least as litter for it! =). Better multiplayer games at home on the couch, there is not! =).

    The game gets 9.5 out of 10. A given purchase!
