Top 10 Reasons Mario Kart 8 Is Overrated
The Top Ten
If you remove the counterparts in metals/babies/koopalings, you're just left with roster from the last handheld game! Talk about crappy padding.
This is the worst roster in the Mario Kart franchise because some Nintendo staff members chose to come up with 7 pathetic clone characters to replace a veteran's spot like Diddy Kong's. FIRE THE HEAD OF MK Nintendo, HE MUST HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM! Don't tell me that the baby princesses are radical, they are pathetic! BUt, at least Kamek will be introduced to the roster once some better people are hired. They could've replaced those 7 clones with worthy veterans like Dixie and Diddy Kong, Dry Bones, King Boo, Honey Queen, Kamek, and Birdo, but NO, they came up with 7 stupid clone characters for the roster. Oh my god, this roster is horribly redundant.
Half a roster of garbage counterparts and not enough individuals.
Total garbage roster! What was the head of Mario Kart 8 thinking when Nintendo replaced fantastic characters like Honey Queen, Dry Bones, Birdo, King Boo, Petey Piranha, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, and Kamek with rubbish ones like Metal Peach, Metal Mario, and the 5 babies? Even Funky Kong is better than those 7.
Metals, babies, and koopalings, oh my!
The character roster takes a backward step for the very first time in Mario Kart history. Instead of various unique minor characters, like Birdo, Dry Bones, Honey Queen, Petey Piranha, and Bowser Jr were, we get only a few returning unique minors, and a new metal, a new baby, and every single koopaling clogging up the roster. - airbb
Unlike previous kart games, now you can only hold the items you receive? What the suck? That is lame because you can't really deploy an item to deflect a red shell item.
The racer in second recieves 3 red shells while the poor soul in ninth gets coins and single mushrooms?
The Nintendo staff members who came up with the Spiny Shell item should be fired!
Can't they just patch the Spiny Shell item instead of ruining any Mario Kart games?V 4 Comments
Now, the battle mode contains arenas remixed from a regular Grand Prix course and hardly distinguishable from a regular kart race. What the HECK? Nintendo, you're going to take out one of the best features of the game, which would have been easy to replicate or improve upon, and slap the name on a rehashed racing mode? That is just shoddy labor.
Now the battle mode courses horribly redundant. They tried to copy 8 of the Grand Prix courses and paste them into the Battle Mode. UGH! That's just shoddy, boring, and horrifying labor, Nintendo!
The battle arenas were now remixed from 8 Grand Prix kart courses and are now nothing but a lame copy. What the SUCK?
What the hell is wrong with you if you like playing on tracks more than arenas?V 1 Comment
At least Rosalina's Ice World, Neo Bowser City, Moonview Highway, and DK Summit didn't appear in Mario Kart 8. They are trash!
At least VS Mode is back and Neo Bowser City is gone.
Even the retro tracks were nerfed. Yoshi Circuit is missing a number of piranha plants and the minecarts in Wario's Goldmine are no longer obstacles. The original rainbow road is nowhere near the nightmare it use to be.
Wow, even N64 Rainbow Road has been nerfed by turning it to only one lap, instead of two. Two is good.V 2 Comments
Why is this useless item still present?
Outside the sucking battle arenas and the bland roster, the head of Mario Kart 8 decreased the Starman power.
Thank god we didn't have to look at a plethora of Funky Kong on Flame Runner Harleys. That was a large issue in Mario Kart Wii. This setup hacked online. Everybody found that sickening Grumble Volcano shortcut for that course using that combination.
Funky is slang for whoever is way overused for online gameplay.
Pink Gold Peach just took up a spot that could've gone to Dry Bones. She is the reason why Mario Kart 8's roster is lanky. I want to kick the 5 babies and the 2 gold characters out and replace those 7 with Honey Queen, Dry Bones, Dixie Kong, Birdo, Diddy, Kamek, and King Boo and that right there is a perfect roster. They could've introduced Kamek and Dixie Kong to the new Mario Kart character spotlight. But NO, Pink Gold Peach instead!
I can't believe Mario Kart 8 is high on the "Top 10 Mario Kart Games That Shouldn't Be On the Worst List" list. And why is "Double Dash" top 1?! Mario Kart 64 should be top 1!
I would rather replace this metal strand of hell with Honey Queen and Dry Bones, force Peach as a locked character, or make Daisy as the default character.
We should take pink gold peach, and replace her with Green Bronze LuigiV 4 Comments
That's only in the DLC packs guys.
I still find it weird how DK doesn't have a console track (either new or retro). He just has the track from the last handheld game.
WHY THE DID THEY USE YOSHI CIRCUIT INSTEAD OF WARIO COLOSSEUM? Golden opportunity lost, Nintendo
She Appeared In Every Game! That's It! I'm Starting To Like SEGA! - CuteGirlJigglypuff
Morons. Peach is the main female character. This hate on Peach is DUMB. - DCfnaf
Nobody wants this stupid "damsel in distress" 'character', she is TERRIBLE! - KennyRulz244444
Dear CuteJigglyPuffGirl, go see "Top 10 Reasons Why Sonic Adventure 2 Is Awful" and "Top 10 Reasosn Why Sonic X Is Awful". And the Princess Peach fanbase is so wild that it makes Beliebers look slightly tame.
Can't they just return the firehopping trick instead of making this game suck?
Fire hopping is an exploit and it should be removed to make things fairer.
Sometimes I wonder... is that a pacifier or bubble gum sticking out of her mouth - Katekat123
Please go away and we could replace Baby rosalina with some clever characters rather than having another clone!V 1 Comment
Please, calm down, whoever wrote this title. Mario Kart 8 is much better than all other Mario Kart games, but it's just my opinion. NOT because of the ruined Battle Mode, roster, or Coins, but because of the anti-gravity, and the amazing track design.
The best thing about Mario Kart 8 would definitely be the anti-gravity and the worst thing about this game being the Princess characters (Rosalina rocks, though Baby Rosalina is cool) and their clones/baby selves!
Please respect people's opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Nostalgiatards got on this list. It is better than the originals. Graphics, controls, tracks, and music are all better than the originals. - DCfnaf
The A button is your gas pedal, but the bottom left trigger is for shooting items. What the HECK!
You have to be a fatty for a solid chance of victory.
Poor Toad. He was so useless, thanks to the bastardized Nintendo. - KennyRulz244444
And that's why I made my Mii bigger.
My story of Mario kart in this. Comet>Slim>MKTV Parafoil is my combination along with one of the fatties.V 1 Comment
Only interesting factor of this is how annoying the character roster is!
Shy Guy now has new sound effects in Mario Kart 8 like OH NO!
