Biggest Problems with Mario Kart Wii

I grew up with this game and absolutely loved it, but not so much anymore. It only seems to be at the top of the "Best Mario Kart Games" list because of nostalgia.

The Top Ten

1 The Rubberbanding AI is atrocious

I know I'm going to recieve tons of hate for this list, but BRING IT ON! - thunderstar1124

2 The Computers are brutal on 150cc
3 It's very prone to exploits
4 Blue Shells occur way too often

No they don't. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

5 Tilt Controls

Play with the steering wheel peripheral and I'll find you back on this list. You only need a slight amount of pressure to move it, making it like a real car. Anyway, your focus should be on the RACE, so the tilting will come naturally to you. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

6 Playing with Hackers online

Every game has this. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

7 More often than not Blue Shells will hit you when you're about to cross the finish line on the third lap

That's life. Like every other video game doesn't have unfair moments. This isn't a glitch or a bug, it's just a normal game why is something like this on here? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

8 Bikes are better than Karts

It all depends on the weight class, the stats, manual or automatic options, or CC. Where did any instruction manual or YouTuber say that bikes were better than carts? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

9 Automatic Drifting doesn't have as many benefits as Manual

It's better because you don't have to divide your attention between the road and the B button.
Or, like everyone else, just DON'T choose that mode. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

10 You can only play on teams in Battle Mode

Battle Mode in MKWii is 1,000x better than Battle Mode in MK8. At lest THIS Battle Mode has stages were we can actually hit people. Also, what kind of "battle" is it where everyone is on a different side? I agree it would be nice to have a 'free-for-all' feature, but this list item sucks. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

The Contenders

11 Getting a Lightning Cloud

I'm done with my rants now lol. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Titles before MKWii had this, why should this game take all the blame? - BlueTopazIceVanilla
