Though it's not the newest Mario Kart game on the block (Mario Kart Wii U is wowing gamers worldwide at the moment), Mario Kart Wii is still a bona fide classic that's still entertaining both hardcore and casual gamers. You get to race as most of your favourite Nintendo characters, such as Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Donkey Kong, and even Yoshi, that green dinosaur that Mario's been riding for far too long.
There's no doubt about it - this game is simply fun. You can race with up to 4 players at the same time, ensuring that you'll be having fun with this title for many years to come. Even though this is a game for the original Nintendo Wii system, it's also compatible with the new Wii U system (as long as you have a Wii Mote controller).
My first Mario Kart game was for the Super Nintendo, and I still remember playing the game's primitive yet thrilling battle mode with my older brother constantly throughout the years. We usually pulled out this game whenever our TV was boring us (hey, this was a time when Saturday afternoons were filled with infomercials). To this day, the Mario Kart franchise is loved by many video game players, and it's easy to see why.
When seeking out a used copy of Mario Kart Wii, it costs $34.99 at Best Buy. Listed below is a snippet of a review of Mario Kart Wii from Eurogamer:
Ultimately, the sheer sensory pleasure of playing Mario Kart Wii - from the charming animations, to the bopping tunes, to the sugar-rush boosting, to the exquisite steering - far overcomes the few concerns we have about it. It still has to be docked a mark for the awkward structure and compromised multiplayer modes - but it's still unreservedly recommended to anyone for whom Mario Kart is a gaming cornerstone.
Quantities are limited, so get this deal while it's still available! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!
