If Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled didn't exist this would easily be the quintessential kart racer. Mario kart 8 deluxe takes the best aspects of ever Mario Kart and combines them with an anti gravity gimmick that feels natural and thankfully only exists to make the tracks more dynamic. Definitely give this a try.

A great, relaxing time with a Nintendo classic - just makes me smile.

It is still a bit of fun to make couple of sessions.
Btw, there is no unlocked items, no interesting to play solo except just a gameplay.
