Top 10 Reasons Why Mario Kart 7 SucksMario kart 7 is a good game, but there were some problems in that game.
The Top Ten
Yeah, I agree, honey queen, lakitu &WIGGER? Wiggler is a good character, but she is a worm! If I see her in Mario Kart 9, I am going to celebrate
Well the roster is still objectively better than all the pre-double dash mario kart game. Plus I would say that because of Shy Guy, Wiggler, Lakitu, and Koopa the roster is better than DS, which only has Waluigi, Dry Bones, and ROB that are there but not in 7.
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.
Waluigi and Diddy should have been added instead of Honey Queen and Metal Mario, but Dry Bowser is just a clone.
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.
By that logic every Mario Kart games after double dash are bad. An item doesn't ruin the game. - Eclipsmon
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 have a solution to that problem. Disactivate the motion controls. There is a reason it's an option. Plus, I don't think they are that bad. - Eclipsmon
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
This sucks to have no vs mode, I would play vs more more than grand prix if it was in mario kart 7
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!
Ranking for Mario Kart 7:
Lack of emblems: (-1)
Lack of VS Mode: (-1)
Interesting courses: (+5)
No baby princesses: (+3)
Engrossing features: (+2)
It's slow as heck: (-6)
Newcomers seem quirky: (0)
Neo Bowser City: (-4)
So my overall ranking is 10-1-1+5+3+2-6-4=8/10.
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.
Impossible to get Shy Guy!
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
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.
Mii was a terrible idea at the start.
I hate mii voices
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.
A banana can send you into last place. Every item I'm this game was so nerfed a banana can end you. - Garfieldtop10s
Blue shells,one hit you can be sent to last.
This sucks that he is not in mario kart 7 he should of made it instead of honey queen
I would pick Honey Queen or Metal Mario over Waluigi any day.
At least Waluigi is an original character, unlike Metal Mario. Why do you hate him so much?
They should have dropped Rosalina, Honey Queen, and Metal Mario for him
Who cares he's not all that great in my opinion
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
You know Random doesn't mean last. You can have it first if you're lucky. - Eclipsmon
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.
If you Garfieldtop10s want to share your worst Mario kart courses go to Top 10 worst Mario kart courses. The creator is Berger.
They should've put Toad's Turnpike & Wario Stadium instead of Koopa Troopa Beach and Kalimari Desert.
Its not in Wii either
Well the Boo item is really good, but it doesn't ruin the game. - Eclipsmon
The boo item is garbage
Well, maybe there is no bike because they were broken in Wii? I don't know. - Eclipsmon
I was so bummed when there was no bikes in this game
The fake item box sucks.

*Me crying in a corner, with my new plushies*
I will not kill you again! - Eclipsmon
Why is Princess Peach on every negative list about a Mario game? It's getting really annoying and it's not funny!
It's a shame Peach replaced a female Kong like Dixie or Tiny.
Ha ha ha. Very funny.
What I don't like about those graphics is that the characters are a bit cubic in places there should have been curves. 3d land came out arround the same time, and it's much better looking. Otherwise the game looks decent. - Eclipsmon
Not really, but what do you expect from a 3D 3DS game?! Sharp 2D graphics?! Go see NES Remix and Super Monkey Ball 3D (by a bit) if you want these types of graphics. I know, graphics don't make the game. Gameplay does.
60fps is great.
I would say, the series should have a story mode one day, but that's not a reason to dislike mario kart. - Eclipsmon
I been thinkin'... you know how they had Mario Tennis: Power Tour for the GBA and how it wasn't just tennis but an actual RP game? They could do something like that for a new Mario Kart. It'd be a bold and risky move, and fans would either hugely dislike it or hugely like it. But hey, that's how you make a legendary game. Of course it would primarily be racing dominated, but I think some good examples are Diddy Kong Racing and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. Diddy Kong racing was largely successful and got a DS remake. Nuts & Bolts did decently, and was only disliked because of its departure from the beloved platforming of B-K. So that risk did not work out well, but I think Mario Kart RP would, and if not, it's not like the series will die.
Well, Coconut Mall wasn't ruined. Mushroom Gorge is better thanks to the gliding mushroom. The other two are worst though. - Eclipsmon
Yeah, especially Koopa Cape! They removed the lightning!
Don't tell me they're radical! They're awful!
What an excuse is this? Hate a whole game for the voice of two characters? Please, give us better excuses. - DaisyandRosalina
I like Rosalina's voice a lot better. Don't get pissed, please!
I want to punch Princess Daisy in the face for how she was in Mario Kart 7: annoying, disgraceful, ugly, cowardly, etc...
Princesses Peach & Daisy both have very annoying voices in this game... WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE THEM?! THEIR VOICES ARE HORRID AND ROSALINA HAS A WAY BETTER VOICE!
Maybe they like their personality who's a thing WAY more important than the voice? - DaisyandRosalina
In Mario kart 8, if one completes a 150c.F. cup and gets 3 stars, the 3 stars automatically sync to 100 and 50cc
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
Music Park sucks because Wii Music sucked. Plus, the wuhu courses do not make me say "WOO-HOO! " BOOM ROASTED!
Umm what ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? Alpine pass, wuhu tracks, melody motorway... THE BEST TRACKS!
Rosalina's Ice World and the Wuhu tracks are so dumb!
You always find at least one metal mario in the online servers. I play as him for guilty pleasure and for irony purposes. Mario Kart Tour is mainly a remake of all the portable Mario Kart games, especially this game.
If your online you see at least 6 of him and they always pick SNES Rainbow Road and that course is overused and retarded
It's so stupid to watch when you go online. Then you should see at least 1 metal Mario in 10 matches, which puts usually SNES Rajnbow Road and Koopa City every time. I saw few matches where EVERYONE almost was metal Mario. I know he's cool but really setting things up! 😠 JUST ONE CHARACTER SO OVERRATED
By Beating The Cups In 150cc Once You Do That You Will Get An Info Telling You That A New Character Has Been Unlocked For Daisy Beat The Mushroom Cup In 150cc To Unlock Wario Beat The Flower Cup In 150cc To Unlock Rosalina Beat The Star Cup In 150cc To Unlock Metal Mario Beat The Special Cup In 150cc To Unlock Shy Guy Beat The Shell Cup In 150cc To Unlock Honey Queen Beat The Banana Cup In 150cc To Unlock Wiggler Beat The Leaf Cup In 150cc To Unlock Lakitu Beat The Lightning Cup In 150cc
Wrong. Shy Guy, Lakitu, Mario, Honey Queen, Daisy, Rosalina, Luigi, and Yoshi are the only decent characters. LOL.
Don't forget about Koopa Troopa! Dry Bones was my go-to character, but Koopa Troopa is also good.
Not a problem - yunafreya648
This isn't a fact - ParkerFang
They're only from Mario Kart 8.
This isn't a reason. - KennyRulz244444
Time Trials is completely ruined and a huge step back in comparison to Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart DS because of those issues.
Why no bikes? I get that it's a 3ds game but still, what the heck
Nathaniel Bandy reference - DrayTopTens
Thank God, since her voice is even more annoying than Justin Bieber's!
It's easy actually. Don't know why people are saying MK7 is hard. One of the easiest ones.
It impossible to get Daisy in make ii and mk7!
Even 150cc is way too easy. I destroyed them all just with Koopa Troopa.
Not a fact - ParkerFang
MK7 just throws in nostalgia tracks that you know that are good, but the new tracks (music) for the debuted tracks (race tracks) is bland.
Well, even though I don't like Daisy, Daisy is more important than Waluigi because at least she appears in Super Mario Land - Eclipsmon
