Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart 8 stinks! The crazy 8 item is even worse than the Lucky 7 item because it adds a lame coin to the pack.
OH MY GOD, the item distribution is nasty. The racer in 2nd place gets 3 red shells while the poor dude on 9th gets only lame coins and single mushrooms? Just ask any idiot who doesn't know the reason and that's because the item distribution was according to rankings in former kart games, but now the distribution is based on distance. Horrible!
The battle mode is ruined. Unlike former kart games, the battle arenas had variety, but now the battle arenas were remixed, and that sucks.
The roster is crap! Why do great series regulars like honey queen, dry Bowser/bones, Bowser jr, funky kong, diddy kong, king boo, and petey piranha get cut? Why do others like kamek, nabbit, and dixie kong never get considered?
Best tracks ever, but Bone Dry Dunes was glitched.
The new characters suck except for Ludwig, Iggy, Lemmy, and Roy. Wendy is trashy ...more
This is the worst Mario Kart console game I've played.
Everything on here is good, except battle mode and too many baby and koopa characters
UPDATE: WHY IS THIS FIRST? - Harri666
The roster is idiot. You know you have a nasty roster when half of it is composed of crappy counterparts of baby characters, metals, and Koopa characters. It ruins the background when you are racing against variations of the same characters. If you want to add any character, make it more engrossing and replace those insane clone characters with diverse experts like Honey Queen, Dry Bones, Dry Bowser, Funky Kong, Diddy Kong, King Boo, and even 4 new characters called Dixie Kong, Fawful, Nabbit, and Kamek. We don't need Green Bronze Luigi or Mario and Peach clones either. End of rant!
"But muh graphics! " People try to defend this game due to how good it looks. We also have apologists going around and saying things like "battle mode is pointless" or "characters don't matter." Please...
It hypes you up with anti gravity b's and it turns out to be terrible. Half the characters are just filler they have link and villager and such. Mario kart is supposed to only have characters from the Mario franchise not every character from Nintendo. Also there are 4 different Mario characters and 4 peach characters and they suck. Metal Mario is okay tanooki Mario is trash. Cat peach is annoying and I don't know what nintendo was trying to accomplish putting in pink gold peach. They also ruined a bunch of other Mario kart tracks. Don't waste your money on this
This game is surprisingly awful.
Looks pretty, but everything else is awful.
Mario Kart 8 has officially become the worst selling entry of the series. How fitting. Also, considering the "buy this game, get one free" offer, it's pathetic.
This game felt unfinished. Deluxe was a somewhat more completed version.
This is my favorite. It had a disappointing roster and battle mode but the tracks and driving mechanics are at they're best. And if your going to thumb down my comment, then please at least just reply to me and explain why. - HeavyDonkeyKong
The battle mode sucks, the item distribution system sucks, the koopalings suck, the victory screen sucks, rainbow road sucks... No wonder this game is at the top of the list.
Bet all the people who hate this game sucks at it cause mario kart 8 has beautiful graphics, 2 great dlc, and amazing courses. Don't get me wrong the game is still flawed. *cough pink gold peach *cough* - spodermanfan1000
The roster has the following: PGP, Metal Mario, Cat Peach, Tanooki Mario, Dry Bowser, 5 babies, Lakitu, Link, Villager, Isabelle, and 7 Koopalings. Ten characters are clones, 3 aren't Mario characters, one already has a role, and seven are filler bosses. Even though I like two of the Koopalings, they still replaced more wanted characters. I complain about Link, Villager, and Isabelle because they aren't even in the series of a Mario character. However, Diddy Kong and Funky Kong are in DK games; therefore, they are in the series of a Mario character. That is perfectly fine with me for a Mario Kart roster.
In battle mode, players compete on race tracks which is strange. Characters should battle on real battle tracks. What type of mode is this meant to be?
Another problem with the battle mode is that green shells are extremely common. Last time I played the battle mode, I got hit by three green shells in less than 100 seconds. The shells are so inaccurate that a skilled ...more
This should not be number 2. Just because the roster sucks doesn't mean it's bad. As long as you have someone you like, who cares? - DCfnaf
Is this game suppose to suck? It sucks.
Outside insane item distribution, the crap roster, remixed battle arenas, and Pink Gold Peach, everything else looks fine. You are 100% WRONG for adding this game to this list because Ludwig, Lemmy, Iggy, Roy, and Larry are awesome, FANBOY!
Some say this may be the worst selling entry. How fitting. Also, the koopalings sucks. Lousy rehashed garbage bosses.
The roster is idiot. You know you have a nasty roster when half of it is composed of counterparts in metals, Koopas, and babies. Heck, even the bee from Mario Kart 7 is better than these guys. It ruins the atmosphere when your racing against variations of the same characters, but the Koopalings are cool. Ya dun goofed, Nintendo. If you're going to add any character, make it more engrossing and replace those stupid clone characters with diverse experts like Honey Queen or Queen Bee, Dry Bones, Dry Bowser, Funky Kong, King Boo, and even 4 new characters like Dixie Kong, Nabbit, Kamek, and Fawful. End of rant!
Why does this exist on the list, I like mario kart 8 and I highly agree deluxe is going to rock
This game just is terrible. I prefer Mario Kart Wii over this.
The roster has the following: Pink Gold
Peach, Metal Mario, Cat Peach, Tanooki
Mario, Dry Bowser, five babies, Lakitu, Link, Villager, Isabelle, and the Koopalings. Ten characters are clones, three aren't even in the series of a Mario character, and one already has a role. The Koopalings take up an insane amount of character slots; it is quite ridiculous. Even though I like two of them, they still take the place of more wanted characters like Birdo, Bowser Jr, King Boo, Petey Piranha, Diddy, Dixie, or Funky Kong. Overall, the twenty-one characters mentioned at the beginning are unneeded for Mario Kart.
The battle mode features characters playing on race tracks. If it's battle mode, why don't characters compete on real battle tracks?
The last time I played battle mode was on a November afternoon. I haven't played the game ever since because of another reason. The green shells are way too common. There are very few areas too fall off a track; therefore, my ...more
I feel like this one is just a kid-friendly Mario Kart. It isn't even Mario kart anymore.
- Half the roster of non-Mario characters and clones
- Item distribution
- Battle mode
- Unlocking things too easily
- Too much attention on Rosalina
This Game Is Horrible, And Is A Terrible Game That a lot Of People Like, I'm Sorry MK8 Fans, This Game Is Just Overrated As Heck, And All It Is Is Toddler Crap! - VideoGamefan5
Worst Mario Kart for the worst Nintendo system. Fitting. Pink Gold Peach and the koopalings symbolize the suckage this generation.
