Oh, it's good. Very, very good.

I'm curious what controls everyone is using? Wii Remote, Wii Classic Controller, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii U Gamepad...?

Pro Controller for me.

I have yet to figure out again how to do the quick start at the beginning of a race O_o sliding seems kinda the same like 64, but seems like I have to learn this frogging thingy after boosting. Tracks are a bit on the shorter side but looking good all around. Not a fan of this 'keyboard' map, forgot the name, but Mount Wario!!! Perfection! Rainbow road looks incredible as well but could have lasted longer too, not nearly as long as the mk64 one mind.

Gamepad...I like having the course map and current positions in view on the gamepad screen, although why, I don't know...if I take my eyes off the course for even an instant, I run off the road...

Rotating b/t the gamepad, the wiimote with the new steering wheel, and a wiimote with the old "classic" controller from the wii (the one that looks kinda like an SNES size controller. All seem to work well. I've tried them all on both modes as well.

I still haven't picked up a pro-controller. That will probably be my next purchase if Donkey Kong doesn't go on sale before I do.

The pro controller is great as it is standalone and doesn't need to be wired to the Wii Remote to work. I use it to play and love it!

Single player: Wii U Pro Controller
Multiplayer: relegated to Gamepad (I don't like the accelerate controls on that. Up on the right analogue stick works fine if you don't let go of it).

Tried a motion Wiimote and couldn't do it as well I used to on MK Wii.

I love how comfy it is! I also haven't changed it in months. Thing lasts forever off a single charge.

I like this statement.

Wii Kart didn't really do the same for me as MK64.

Keep in mind that MK64 was the only MK game I've played prior to 8 so this should be taken with a grain of salt. Except one single race on the Wii which left me totally confused - but I wasn't really paying attention either.

Beer does that to you.

My bad, when I wrote this I thought the shells had 5 holes, but after reviewing the slo-mo, they have 6 holes! 4 for the limbs, one for the neck & head, and another for the tail!

Crazy attention to detail, but I appreciate it!

Don't they have the "Buy Mario Kart, get another game free!" deal down under?

Is so, problem solved!

Like someone else said, you should get a free game...so, you'll have two games and therefore, not be breaking the promise! Go for it, Victoria! The game is incredibly fun. The system is great. Plus, you’ll be ready for more cool games in the future. There’s no reason not to get a Wii U and you’ll be totally happy with one.
