Advantages: A game you can never stop playing
Disadvantages: Some tracks can be more difficult than others and takes time and patience
I was recommended this game a number of times by different people, so in the end, i bought one online for under £20. I've never regretted it. I don't play on it loads, but when i get the urge, i can't stop. I've had this for just over 1 year.
The wheel was with it, but you can still use the remote without the wheel if you don't have one, it works just as well.
There are 24 characters you can use on this, such as Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Toad, Baby Peach, Donkey Kong, Koopa Troopa. Each character have different stats, eg weight, gender and clothing. Their abilities all differ and it is trial and error about who is the best. The type of Kart or bike also depends on how good you race. I like to choose Baby Bowsers baby booster. It is so funny watching it trying to go fast round the track!
As you win more cups, you can unlock more characters, but as yet i havn't managed to do so. This can be tricky
There are different cups you can compete in and they contain different tracks
The types of tracks include, the Grand Prix, Moo Moo Meadows, Toads Factory, i find this one a little tricky, but it just takes practice. You also race along the beach!
Once you have finished one race, you automatically go onto the next track. Whatever rank you finish on from the previous race, you stay the same on the next, such as 3rd place. This gives you more chance to win the competition at the end!
You can either play on your own, or as a team, which is quite a challenge but more fun. Whilst you are racing, there are things to watch out for. You might be struck by lightening, flattened,and your windscreen may be splattered in mud, which actually distracts your vision! Also watch out for the banana skins on the track, otherwise you will spin around. These all affect your poll and you have to work a lot harder to catch up.
There are so many other options to this game, where you can gain many advantages for winning and putting the other players out. You have time trials and even do wheelies. Great fun.
Summary: A great game to have with friends around
