Mario Kart 8 Deluxe reviews and comments

For a single-player perspective Mario Kart 8 Deluxe can be a little plain in terms of unlocking things, but this game is not designed for that (all tracks and characters are unlocked from start but you can unlock a lot of karts and parts) its designed for you to play it locally with friends (or online maybe) and in that regard MK8D excels. There's a lot of options and courses that and in top of that, you still can mirror all those tracks and give a somewhat new feeling to them. The kart customization it's very good, so you can race at your own pace and style.

One of the aspects that I really like was the music, its just amazing and sets the mood perfectly. There are a lot of tweaks that make the game feel well balanced in regards of which items you can get depending on your place, also the punishment for falling from the road or getting hit is not as punishing so its not that hard to make a comeback and maintains the races very fast-paced as it should be.

I believe that MK8D is the best Mario Kart experience to date, it is as always has been, a perfect game to destroy friendships and that's why I loved it.
«Just one more turn»
«Can’t stop playing»
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.
«Better with friends»
«Beaten more than once»
Finished on March 22, 2018 (Switch).

A great, relaxing time with a Nintendo classic - just makes me smile.
«Sit back and relax»
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.
