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.
Pink Gold Peach was traditionally supposed to be replaced by Orange Bronze Daisy.
If I was in 2nd, I would want better items if I was half a lap behind first rather than two feet behind. - greenshyguy
The racer in second recieves 3 red shells while the poor soul in ninth gets coins and single mushrooms?
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 Nintendo staff members who came up with the Spiny Shell item should be fired!
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!
MK8 puts more focus on racing than actual fighting. "Battle Mode" is just the ability to drive backwards without Lakitu popping up on the screen. People are racing normally and hitting people as they go by. I love the anti-gravity aspect and the ability to mix-and-match Karts, but Battle Mode is the worst. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
The battle arenas were now remixed from 8 Grand Prix kart courses and are now nothing but a lame copy. What the SUCK?
Duplicate Reason - greenshyguy
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!
You know how you can change the color of Yoshi and Shy Guy? She should just be a costume for 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!
Simple doesn't mean bad, and the tracks aren't simple in my opinion. - greenshyguy
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.
Why is this useless item still present?
Really stupid. If you've played the course hundreds of times you'll know it like the back of your hand. They are only "challenging" when you first get the game. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Sorry, no. - greenshyguy
THAT would be Mario Kart Wii, Double Dash or Super Mario Kart - xandermartin98
It's really easy to play - DCfnaf
Outside the sucking battle arenas and the bland roster, the head of Mario Kart 8 decreased the Starman power.
WHO CARES? - greenshyguy
That's only in the DLC packs guys.
Honestly I don't mind this. Plus their going to have to do this anyway if their going to do retro tracks
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.
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.
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.
I think all of the babies eat gum during a race but somehow it is a pacifier.
Sometimes I wonder... is that a pacifier or bubble gum sticking out of her mouth - Katekat123
The babies creep me out and the two gold characters
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.
So? - yunafreya648
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
I think the user meant the alternate versions of Princess Peach like Pink Gold Peach (because apparently Metal Mario wasn't enough), Baby Peach and Cat Peach (get it?! Vecause Mario Kart 8 was released shortly after 3D World!. ;-)
Peach clone fanboys must get their faces punched.
Please go away and we could replace Baby rosalina with some clever characters rather than having another clone!
She contradicts Rosalina. - DCfnaf
The A button is your gas pedal, but the bottom left trigger is for shooting items. What the HECK!
It's not. Cry me a river nostalgiatards. - DCfnaf
No sorry. - DaisyandRosalina
Controls are the easiest in the series! - DCfnaf
Who ever added this to the list, just sucks at Mario kart 8
That's a good thing... - DCfnaf
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.
Instead of the 5 babies in the feather class, Dry Bones and Nabbit must take their place in the feather class.
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!
Whoever added this is very biased against Mario Kart 8. - greenshyguy
The wii u sucks they stopped making games for it the SAME YEAR THEY CREATED IT! - Katekat123
Wii U is awesome! Stupid Console Fanboys. - DCfnaf
What? - DCfnaf
The dev team probably wants you to master the track's layout instead of breaking the game. - greenshyguy
Last time I checked, Toad was meant to be a strong character. Peach deserves to be in this category. - KennyRulz244444
There's nothing wrong with 200cc - greenshyguy
And...? - greenshyguy
