Much over hyped which further enhances the disappointment when you get it. Neither was MK8 wii u even a good game to start with or after update 1 of 2 . If you want a good MK game then get MK7 3ds. Still a premium price for the last good MK game, but at least it's good!


I disagree. Playing the redesigned battle mode has been the most fun I’ve had gaming in years!

Those Tesco and Amazon multibuy pre-order deals were well worth it if this is a "deal" months down the line.

I purchased a copy last week but found a lot of places were out of stock. Maybe Nintendo are limiting stock, to keep prices inflated. TNintendo do that with a lot of products.

Same price amazon, but this is pretty hard to find at the minute for a sensible price

I disagree too. Brilliant game. The online battle mode is fantastic and the single player great fun.

Certainly in my top three switch games, as it was on the Wii u.

£40 Very well spent.

Oh I can't agree with that! MK8 is a brilliant laugh when played local multiplayer. It's everything that Switch is about. The upgraded resolution makes the visuals really pop on a big screen and like @slacey1070 says the battlemode is hilarious. it is starting to get cold in here though, I should have brought a jumper.

Best Mario kart for me was the original. Has never been.veaten. Closest to challenge it was the Gameboy advance!

A lot of people don't like playing single player GP in it as there is no challenge and nothing to unlock. A huge part of what has always been enjoyable with MK, needlessly taken away there.

I really liked the remaster/port off this game. Plays extremely well.

Battle mode and it's mini games are great. Especially cops and robbers.

I've only played it twice though. It's not a great single player game.

If you want a good MK game play Double Dash. That is the pinnacle of the series.

But, MK8 is a good game. All first party Nintendo games are over hyped but that doesn't spoil the enjoyment, in my opinion.

Well what you can do? Just saying what I think. A lot of people don't like MK8D. Many Nintendo fans will like anything and everything, some even thought Animal Crossing Festival Wii U was a good game!

We have had MK8 v.1, MK8 v.2, and MK8 v.3, if it so damn good, how about the next MK game is MK8 v.4 ? Lets just make every MK game be a MK8 game from now?

Mario Odyssey is a superb game, dare I say brilliant. I would not argue with anyone who said so. Just not having it with MK8, which ever of the 3 versions we are talking about, particularly the Switch one. Is no where near the brilliance of what a top title, or belter of a game should be. Nintendo have got away with it though, that is genius.

If MK8 wii u is v.1 and MK8 D is v.3 then what is v.2?

If MK8 wii u is v.1 and MK8 D is v.3 then what is v.2?


I'm presuming the Wii U version with DLC.
MK8 Wii U (v.1) was updated to v.2 with the 50% extra tracks/characters and a 200cc mode maybe but honestly can't remember as it is so crap, and it generally trashed the MK8 franchise by messing about with it in silly ways with other game stuff making it more like Nintendo Characters Kart.

v.3 of course is a just a fix of something things that were seriously wrong in v.1, yet for a game that is trying to fix previous mistakes it introduces new ones like no GP challenge to unlock cups. Ver.3 is not really a proper new game in the slightest, just because it is on a newer console. It should have been a £10 download for anyone who had bought v.1.

I honestly would not be surprised if there was a MK8 v.4, as the game is so many miles away from being a brilliant game, it could do with a bit of work.

Some people will have spent close to £100 on MK8.
v.1 say £40
v.2 say £12
v.3 say £45

That can't be right? That can't be good. That is not what we expect from Nintendo is it? Or is it now what we expect? Is that what people want and are satisfied.

So you don't like it because it had non mario tracks and characters in the dlc?

Paying full whack for it again is a bit much if you had it on wii u already, sure but its a fantastic package for anyone who never owned it. I know I wasn't willing to shell out £40 again, I used a code to get it for 25 from very and only really because I had a switch with no games until splatoon was out.

Having said that its absolutely great being able to take it anywhere, break off the joycons and have a round of MK with folk. Personally I really think its the best I've played since mk64 which is my all time favourite. Especially the redone music on the classic tracks is awesome

It doesn't really bother me, but, yes, I don't see why they unlocked all the tracks. I don't see what that achieved.

I'm actually quite disappointed by Mario Odessey. Dare I say it, Mario Sunshine disappointed (still like it).
Having 60 trillion moons to collect really feela grindy to me instead of fun. I even bought 30 in one of the stores today, WHY!? Its not fun having to buy these over and over again.

I much prefer the 120(ish) stars idea than having so many they all feel meaningless

Just one guys opinion
