Released on: Wii.
Mario Kart Wii is the latest installment from the Mario Kart series. Although previous installments were already great, Mario Kart comes to Wii in an attempt to further push the limits of an already great game to an outstanding one. And with Wii focusing more on “gaming experience”, you can expect a more enhanced experience from Mario Kart Wii, and here is how the game gives that to you.
Mario Kart Wii increases its selection of playable racers to a total of 24, with 36 vehicles to choose from which includes karts and motorbikes.
Each kart or motorbike has different parameters to give each a different feel. With parameters like speed, handling, weight, and others, you will be able to choose the perfect vehicle to fit your driving style.
The game offers new items that can be gained on the track giving new, and funny, ways to beat your opponents.
The game comes together with the Wii Wheel, a peripheral where you can fit in the Wii Remote providing players the simulation of a real steering wheel allowing you to furthermore “feel” the race.
This title still has a good number of game modes available and few new ones to keep you playing.
Wi-Fi Connectivity allows players to race online with up to 12 rivals. Players are now able to text chat with other racers with a list of preset phrases.
Mario Kart Wii has successfully brought the title to new level of fun, introducing new concepts, features, and most importantly, new gaming experience.
