    Our Thoughts

    Any fan of Nintendo knows that the Mario Kart games have never failed to impress, and this eighth instalment in the franchise is absolutely no exception. Much like all the other games in the Mario Kart series, you play as characters from the Super Mario range of titles, in addition to a few other related characters such as Donkey Kong and his various offspring, cousins, friends, and such. On this occasion you can either play single-player, against friends in "real life" or online using the Nintendo Network.

    With an impressive 88% Metacritic rating and the honourable accolade of being the fastest selling Wii U game of all time (as of 3/6/2016) with almost 8 million copies sold, you can't go far wrong! Since its release in 2014, Mario Kart 8 has continued to see patches and DLC being made available, ensuring that the fun never stops; as is Nintendo tradition. If you're into Amiibo figures, you'll also be glad to know MK8 supports a good number of these using the Wii U gamepad.
