And so it starts again. My life is now over for the next few months. Alll im gonna get is " Dad, will you play MK8 with me."
Here's a little preview of our first online race. Hard to believe i not only beat my son but also everyone else, get it!!
Its Mario Kart, nuff said for most people who've play any of its fore fathers. Frustratingly brilliant, again rewarding those who are lucky rather than technically gifted.
Blue shells can now be "blocked" by a type of horn that, when activated at the right moment, can blow the shells away. But it doesnt stop the most annoying thing of all, the feeling of being "cheated" nearly every race. Leading by a big margin over 2 and a half laps only to get repeatedly hammered just before the finishing line to leave you at best 6th or 7th, grrrrrrrr.
The new added feature of anti gravity is good, as are the MK7 features of flying or more precisely gliding. Different routes make for quicker laps but you have to nail each corner, powersliding your way round the whole course to conquer.
Looks are really good, the Wii in HD with the usual brilliant colours and typical course design.
This is one of the reasons why, if you havent, you should buy a wii u.
I'll still be crap in 2 months time but no doubt i;ll have had some great laughs with my boys, maybe even winning the odd online race too.
