Top 10 Reasons Why Mario Kart 7 Sucks

Garfieldtop10s
Mario kart 7 is a good game, but there were some problems in that game.

The Top Ten

1 The 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.

You don't even get that much characters at the start! I was SO disappointed! - Princesslibby2006

2 The 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

3 Wii 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

4 No 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!

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.

Really stupid to not have that

5 It'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.

6 Overpowered 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

7 Item 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.

8 Terrible 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.

When you choose the mii it's like MEEP YAW - Katekat123

One thing about the Mii voices in Mario Kart 7 that irritates me the most is that no matter what the gender, height, and weight of the Mii, the voice will always be the same, high-pitched one, which gets annoying. I like games when Miis actually have different voices, like Mario Kart Wii(depends on gender, height and weight) and Tomodachi Life(depending on what voices you give them), and even ones when Miis don't have voices at all, like Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS and Wii U. I even changed Miis to see if the voices changed as I at first expected to happen, but it didn't. I mean, I'm fine with some games when Miis have the same voice, but not when it sounds too high-pitched, loud-ish, and annoying at the same time. This is definitely one of my least favorite things in this game.

9 Overpowered items

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.

10 Waluigi not appearing in this game

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

They should have dropped Rosalina, Honey Queen, and Metal Mario for him

Waluigi is love. Waluigi is life.

Waluigi needs to be in more games! - Princesslibby2006

The Contenders

11 Part 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

12 Poor 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.

They should've put Toad's Turnpike & Wario Stadium instead of Koopa Troopa Beach and Kalimari Desert.

13 The failed chance for there to be biker outfits
14 No Boo Item

Its not in Wii either

Who cares?

15 No fake item box

The fake item box sucks.

16 No Story

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.

17 Princess Peach is in this game

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.

What I don’t understand is why Peach gets SO MUCH HATE. Why is she SO annoying?! People say stuff like this:
1. Her voice is annoying
2. She can’t defend herself and is ALWAYS captured
3. Pink is a girly color
4. She’s ugly
What I think of these reasons:
1. This is just a matter of opinion, not a real reason. Her voice isn’t annoying, she sounds like a beautiful woman. And she’s a princess, so her voice might be a little squeaky and stuff.
2. Have you not seen the games?! Mario Rabbids, Super Princess Peach, Super Smash Bros, Paper Mario Thousand Year Door, Super Mario 3D World, Super Paper Mario, Sports games, Kart games, Olympic Games, etc. May I go on? These games show that she can defend herself at least a little, she’s not just a princess with no defense skills. Similar to Amy’s hammer, she has a parasol to not just whack people with it but to also float down nicely from high jumps. That’s cool and very useful! Clearly some people aren’t ...more

18 Peach & Daisy's voices

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...

Now that I, The Ultimate Daredevil have drasitcally grown and developed, am I right/wrong on these traits?

Is Princess Daisy annoying? Only when it comes to voice (I know her voice gets me in such a negative way like Fred Figglehorn's, but voice makes the character not)

Is she disgraceful? Yeah, not much...

Is she ugly? She is sexy, but her facial design style does not seem to translate well in CGI.

Is she cowardly? Yeah, no, uh, no. - Rutt & Tuke

19 The graphics are horrid

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.

20 No Star Syncing

In Mario kart 8, if one completes a 150c.F. cup and gets 3 stars, the 3 stars automatically sync to 100 and 50cc

21 The 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

22 No Luigi Deathstares

They're only from Mario Kart 8.

This isn't a reason. - KennyRulz244444

23 Bad new tracks

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!

24 Metal Mario Metal Mario

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

25 No time trials online leaderboards

Time Trials is completely ruined and a huge step back in comparison to Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart DS because of those issues.

26 No Bikes

Why no bikes? I get that it's a 3ds game but still, what the heck

27 People say it is impossible to get Daisy

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!

28 How you unlock the characters
29 Rosalina, Mario, Wario and Wiggler are the only decent playable characters

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

30 Too easy

Even 150cc is way too easy. I destroyed them all just with Koopa Troopa.

31 The style
32 Luigi, Wario, Daisy, Yoshi, Rosalina and Koopa are the only decent characters

Not a fact - ParkerFang

33 The wii sports tracks
34 Fast cars are actually really slow
