Two weeks in, my enjoyment of Mario Kart 7 shows no sign of fading. The online races work so well, this title alone could keep my 3DS in action for the systemâ€™s lifespan, just as online racing in Mario Kart Wii kept that console humming through many software droughts.
Some random thoughts about the game have cropped up since the review:
We lost King Boo and Dry Bowser for Wiggler and Honey Queen? Yeeesh!
Next MK…I want Boo Mario and Toadsworth as playable characters.
Yoshi keeps yelling something that sounds like, â€œPothole!!!â€
Changing your Miiâ€™s shirt color effects the in-game voice…but itâ€™ll still sound like Yoshiâ€™s cousin Bubba.
Online players who keep choosing Maka Wuhu just to ruin the race by exploiting the shortcut glitch are complete tools.
Take the alternate route just before the rotating barrel in Bowserâ€™s Castle. Fun!
That long glide down from Rock Rock Mountain through the forestâ€”Best flight moment in any game. Ever.
Koopa Cape Wii or Koopa Cape 3DS? I like â€˜em bothâ€”interesting variations!
Tracks that still give me trouble: Luigiâ€™s Mansion and Daisy Cruiser
Blue Shells are my only hope of winning a race against Holly!
So, how are you all enjoying MK7? Have you found any particular details that make you smile…or pull your hair out? Please share!
