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

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.

It's okay. I mean they added Shy Guy and wiggler that I really don't hate that much. but then there's obscurity over Metal Mario and NO WALUGI, DIDDY KONG, BIRDO, BOWSER JR., etc.

2 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.

Nope - ToadF1

3 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

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 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

6 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.

God - ToadF1

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 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.

9 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.

10 Waluigi not appearing in this game

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

Who cares he's not all that great in my opinion - ParkerFang

Waluigi is love. Waluigi is life.

They should have dropped Daisy instead

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 No Bikes

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

14 How you unlock the characters
15 The failed chance for there to be biker outfits
16 No Boo Item

Its not in Wii either

Who cares?

17 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

18 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.

19 No Star Syncing
20 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
