Another Wiinner (Super Mario Kart)
17 April 2008 2 Comments
Yesterday I went out and got the new Super Mario Kart for the Wii. I think it’s superb. A great sequal to previous versions of the game. I loved the original and this shares the same sort of gamplay and excitement with a multitude of events, traps, competition and kart customisation.
I think Nintendo have made great use of the controller again by incorporating it into a mini steering wheel. I thought it looked a bit naff when I first got it out of the box but once you start playing on it the controls seem very natural and intuititve and you find yourself ‘leaning’ into the bends and doing all the actions that probably seem comical to others but make it an absorbing gaming experience. I’ve only just started to play this and I’m still on the ‘mushroom cup’ but I’m looking forward to playing it more and also getting a second steering wheel to compete with the rest of the family in multiplayer mode. It’s great fun and has all the characteristics of the original but updated and with an innovative new interface.
