For some reason we’ve only touched on Mario Kart 8 once on this blog, back when we highlighted the psychological trickery it can bring out from its players. This time around we’re doing a belated appraisal as, frankly, everyone loves Mario Kart and this is, undoubtedly, the masterpiece of the series.
We covered Super Mario Kart recently, the 1992 SNES classic which had remained our favourite in the series. This was until 8 hit the shelves in spring 2014, with a heady mixture of physics defying wall climbing, relentless action, and really bloody intense online multiplayer features. Journey with us, then, as we give you a glimpse of Nintendo’s Wii U classic, replete with honky horns, red shells, and utter carnage.
