Seeing MK8 v.3 (aka Mario Kart 8 Deluxe) is fairly disappointing, seems worth posting this alternative racing game, now out to buy on physical cart.

It's an overpriced mobile game that isn't that interesting or that fun. Avoid.

That it was so poor in MK8 v.1 and v.2 they could have done anything and improved it with v.3 and what's more, it is lacking in maps.Just MK8 v.1, v.2 and v.3, other MK games have been fine, we like MK7 (3DS) in our house.


What are you on about v.1 v.2 v.3? Mario kart 8 deluxe is a brilliant game.
28 quid for a free mobile game? You're having a laugh

I got this on release day, it's certainly no Gran Turismo, and it certainly is not Forza Motorsport, but it's something. It does play a lot like a mobile game, fairly simple to pick up and play.
Ant local split screen multiplayer?

I just want a car game that’s free roaming. Like Nintendo Switch equivalent of a Forza game (I know Forza is Microsoft only)

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the 3rd version of the game. Is actually more of a Nintendo Kart than a Mario Kart game mind you (seeing it is mixed with other game franchises like Zelda/Animal Crossing/Splatoon). I'd rather play Duke Nukem 3D, now that is a genuinely brilliant game .

I wont disagree with you on duke nukem 3d
My only gripe with mk is vertical split screen

Third version?

I was playing a lot of Double Dash recently, and it's much faster and tighter. But overall I think MK8 is amazing.

Same for me - love the game, that vertical split was a terrible idea though
Does this game have ANYTHING to do with Test Drive Unlimited? Break up of devs from the old team or something? Because that cover is almost like a tribute to those games

It *is* a mobile game. And they have the gall to charge full retail for it at release

Freezing. Rubbish price. Would bite at maybe £3.99 on eShop.

People here appear to be trying to compare this with Forza or Gran Turismo. I understand the price being too high but the User Score on MetaCritic is a 7.3 and it looks decent for a racing game on the Switch.
I play this on ipad and is a very good mobile game. Don't really think it warrants a console version tbh as options are fairly limited (as is the case generally with mobile orientated games). However, I'd guess it's more accessible than the like of Gran Turismo etc for a quick pick up & blast session as it is so simple to play (though to be good it does take practise!). I'd also guess Switch players are generally younger than XB1/PS4 so can probably understand the designers aiming toward Switch

After umpteen patches etc it is still quite buggy on IOS ie.

some achievements don't seem to want to register eg Catagory A fan - I have several different Cat A cars and still only says I have 1 for this achievement

No matter how many times I try to invite friend (am logged in through FB), it won't play ball

Similarly, I am unable to borrow a friends engineer for that achievement.

Anyone else with issues such as these?

nb. with the latest update (last couple of days) the AI cars are much more aggressive and will usually send you into the barrier with any collision with them (not necessarily a negative thing as it makes you much more careful around them)

I’ve got it from Boomerang so I’ll see what the fuss is about later. If it’s terrible I don’t really care.

Edit:- I've played it for an hour or two and can confirm its utter guff on the Switch
