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 Ten

1 The character roster

I got the game yesterday because it was my bday. I look at the roster there is only 6 characters. 6! Such a tiny roster at the roster at the start

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

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.

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 No vs mode?

Really stupid to not have that

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.

4 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

5 It's slow as heck

Maybe it’s to slow so they can have honey queen catch up.

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.

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 Terrible Mii voices

I hate mii voices

Mii was a terrible idea at the start.

Needs a new voice.

The male miis in Mariokart 7 are so obnoxious that they make my ears bleed

8 Item visibility

I think Item visibility is a good thing.

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!

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

Waluigi is Love!

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

Waluigi needs to be in more games! - Princesslibby2006

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

At least Waluigi is an original character, unlike Metal Mario. Why do you hate him so much? - TheYoshiPyro64

The Newcomers

? Waluigi Pinball with no Waluigi

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

I was so bummed when there was no bikes in this game

14 No Boo Item

The boo item is garbage

Its not in Wii either

Who cares?

15 No fake item box

The fake item box sucks.

16 Princess Peach is in this game

Ha ha ha. Very funny.

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

17 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.

18 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.

19 They ruined the Wii tracks

Yeah, especially Koopa Cape! They removed the lightning!

20 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...

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

21 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

22 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

23 How you unlock the characters

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

24 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.

Honey queen,wiggler,Lakitu and metal mario is trash. Koopa,bowser,yoshi,shy guy,mario,bowser and toad are great.

Not a problem - yunafreya648

25 No Luigi Deathstares

They're only from Mario Kart 8.

This isn't a reason. - KennyRulz244444

26 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!

27 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

28 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.

29 No Bikes

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

30 Lame courses
31 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!

32 Too easy

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

33 The style
34 Luigi, Wario, Daisy, Yoshi, Rosalina and Koopa are the only decent characters

Not a fact - ParkerFang

35 The wii sports tracks
36 Fast cars are actually really slow
37 The Original Soundtrack Is Bland

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.
