Well this is probably the best Mario Kart game I've ever played. Things I have used my skills to notice; -100cc is slightly taxing, which is a step above every other MK game where 150cc was a drive through the park. -Blue shells and lightning are still annoying and theres always one of those per race. But these are the only 2 annoying things in the game, even Toad's voice doesn't grate. The Mii's voice is now the worst. -Buckets of content! The whole "build your own kart" thing is great. I've never experimented so much in a MK game, 4 hours in and I'm still searching for my fave setup. Are we sharing 3DS friend codes to play against each other? Mine be- 1977-0309-7350 It's about time the 3DS got some proper games. Between this and Mario 3D Land I'm sorted .
