      I like how this game in the Mario Kart series focuses more on driving skill rather than luck-based items. I can still win a race in this game if I drive well enough regardless of what I am hit with.

      Both Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii allow players to use a huge number of powerful items and that really ruins the fun of the games.

      In this one, blue shells and lightening bolts are a lot less common.

      The tracks

      in this game are well-designed and do not overdo it on obstacles and traps.

      This game is more about racing and skill, so the tracks test a player based on how well they take to the turns, powerslide and survive on tracks without rails on the side.

      Battle mode is really fun, although it is a shame there are only four battle tracks.

      There is a lot of challenge and fun to be had in this mode as this game features certain ...

      • items, like the Ghost item, that others do not have and can provide added layers of strategy and fun.

        One fault though lies in the CPU.

        The CPU drivers cheat and it really ruins some of the fun in this game.

        They are able to drive faster than human players and if they pass me up and are able to get ahead and out of site, it is unlikely that I will ever catch them.

        They also catch up faster than I

        would be able to after I hit them with an item or they hit something.

        This was a cheap and easy way to increase the game’s difficulty.

        Overall though, this game is a good racer that offers some fun items to use but not so much that a person with skill will be rendered helpless.

        The tracks and the music are for the most part a plus and the battle mode will offer timeless fun as long as you have someone to play with.
