Mario Kart 8 text & Video review

Text review:

Well This is mainly to cover what I didn't cover in the video review. Like for instance, I like how the headlights come on on the karts when you enter a tunnel or dark area on a track. Or, if the whole track is dark then your headlights stay on the whole time. I like how Nintendo took the time on the little things in this game. They made it feel more realistic without taking away from the funny unrealistic feel of the game. When playing as Metal Mario in previous Mario Kart games, he's not that much heavier then Mario. But when you're coated in silver metal, you're heavy. So I'm glad that in Mario Kart 8 Metal Mario is more realistic when he moves. He moves slower than Mario and drives like he's stiff. I love the playback feature. To be able to play back everything in slo-mo is incredible, it's like watching real-HD racing footage. Except its better because you can drive upside-down.

All for now, Game On Gamers!
