Top 10 Reasons Why Mario Kart 7 Sucks

Mario kart 7 is a good game, but there were some problems in that game.

The Top TenXW

1The character roster

Shy Guy and Lakitu were fresh additions to the roster, but I wish Nintendo could've taken their time and added Waluigi, Dry Bones, and Diddy Kong to give a larger roster sacrifice and an accepted roster to decrease the Honey Queen hate level if the release date was delayed.

At least 2 generic enemies replaced the baby princesses. Wiggler and Lakitu have better sound effects than the baby princesses. So, that reason was stupid from the start, and take that off this list.

Nintendo didn't want to add Diddy Kong and Bowser Junior to the roster because they wanted to increase the character diversity in the roster. If you think a lack of Diddy Kong and Bowser Junior is pathetic, you're being a damn moron because Diddy Kong and Bowser Jr. are nothing but a lame copy.

Lack of baby princesses was at least a good thing of Mario Kart 7's roster.

2Wii wheel controls

First person gameplay sucks because you can't really see the stage hazards in Neo Bowser City or any course.

You get a first person perspective but it defaults to wii wheel controls. And those controls suck. - Garfieldtop10s

You don't have to do first person racing so WHY are you complaining? - Katekat123

Press up on the directional pad. - Garfieldtop10s

3The blooper

Why is this item STILL in the series? Nobody even has told that it obscures screen. At first, its very gross enemy. Second, it can go away fast. If you play with motion controls (FIRST PERSON) you can see the road still but only kart is blackened. Just only one squirt and your view is half of black ink.

This thing shouldn't ever have been in Mario Party 8. It's a dunce little squirt and it is ALREADY AN ITEM WHICH MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE Mario KART SERIES! Oh my god, come on Nintendo!

These things still do nothing, and cost you the race if it's your last item. - Garfieldtop10s

I agree that the item isn't the best but you have to love the Blooper character. He's ' adorable. - InklingSethO

4No vs mode?

Neo Bowser City stole VS Mode in Mario Kart 7!

Why is there no VS mode? There is NO good reason to explain this. Like the courses instead of battle arenas for balloon battle in 8. FIRE THE HEAD OF MK Nintendo, HE MUST HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM!

This is what pisses me off. I wanna play my favorite tracks and turn off the items like I did in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8. - Metts

Crappy game makes me fell like I've been totally ripped off

5Overpowered combos and gaps

Gaps are when you take shortcuts shroom less with para gliders. And bdasher-red monster-para glider can go die, that combo is just so overused. And gaps break the game, maka wuhu Is a prime example - Garfieldtop10s

6It's slow as heck

It's the slowest Mario kart in the franchise. 150cc feels like you drive 15 mph. I hate waiting 5 hours to finish a cup. - Garfieldtop10s

Lakitu or Honey Queen will make the Grand Prix job easier. So, take that reason off this list.

People say Honey Queen is hard to unlock, but they were happy after hearing this.

You need Lakitu/Shy Guy/Yoshi/Daisy/Honey Queen to make the task simple.

7Item visibility

So I'm in 2nd place. Some guy slows down and I don't know why. Seconds later, a blue shell obliterates me. Why can you see other peoples items? - Garfieldtop10s

Mario kart 8 has that problem! Yea this is problem too in franchise but really?

At least the POW Block and Thunder Cloud didn't appear. They are trivial!

Get pissed off at the Spiny Shell item.

8Terrible Mii voices

This is the most true thing on this list! - Garfieldtop10s

Can't even play who I want to when my voice sounds like nails on a chalkboard.

9Overpowered items

A banana can send you into last place. Every item I'm this game was so nerfed a banana can end you. - Garfieldtop10s

10Part unlock mechanic

Every 50-100 coins you get a random par- wait, RANDOM? It's a huge issue, that word. You always get the part you want last. And it sucks - Garfieldtop10s

The Contenders

11Poor retro tracks

What the heck?! Some of my favorites like Waluigi Pinball, Coconut Mall and SNES rainbow road got in Mario kart 7 too! - LL

Yoshi Lagoon could've replaced Rosalina's Ice World.

I would pick Honey Queen or Metal Mario over Waluigi any day. - DaisyandRosalina

16The stupid "Rival" mechanic

If you play as a certain character, such as Toad, you'll have this opponent that will always catch up to you (and oh what a surprise, it's that godawful Peach! ) along with a few others (I believe that Koopa Troopa is one of them). - KennyRulz244444

What's that? Your rival got a blue shell just before finishing and you red-shelled him for good measure? Nope, (s)he still comes in second. - airbb

18Princess Peach is in this game

It's a shame Peach replaced a female Kong like Dixie or Tiny.

Why is Princess Peach on every negative list about a Mario game? It's getting really annoying and it's not funny!

19Peach & Daisy's voices

Don't tell me they're radical! They're awful!

I want to punch Princess Daisy in the face for how she was in Mario Kart 7: annoying, disgraceful, ugly, cowardly, etc...

I like Rosalina's voice a lot better. Don't get pissed, please!

Who voted for this is stupid, no seriously?! - DaisyandRosalina
