Does anyone else still play this game? It's IMO the best Mario Kart ever made and has held up surprisingly well. I often play a round of it in between tasks or while browsing the internet.

The AI rubber banding can be ridiculous in this game. Also, if you lose sight of an AI racer in front of you, they'll amazingly be half the board ahead of you all the way to the end of the race.

Even still, it beats any Mario Kart after Double Dash.

This game brings back memories. Funny I was 3 when I first played this game. i didnt know what i was doing but it was so much fun. it usually ended up with me throwing up because my eyes were never used to the brightness of games and all that stuff. I bought it now and its still amazing. I really can't say anything bad about this game. Rainbow Road, Bowser Castle and Toad's Turnpike are my favorite tracks.

I think Double Dash is the best.
Great kart control, 150 CC is a perfect speed. Turbo boosting is done perfectly. And mainly, It got items perfect. 64's and DS's item hits weren't bad, but shit like Mario Kart Wii, where a single hit of a shell could put you back like 8 places, is infuriating. i have no idea why people like that game so much, because the overpowered items completely ruin what is an otherwise fun game for me.
Double Dash was like 'okay it'll maybe set you back a little and anyone right behind you will probably pass you, but that's about it.' You get right back up. Never really felt cheated by items in 64, DD, or DS. Wii was an abomination.

>>884024
3DS was nothing special. It was fun but the DS one is still better. I unlocked all the characters then just gave the game to my sister. Online was decent enough.

Using sprites allowed them to give way more detail to the characters. Compare the sprites from MK64 to the models in any other Mario game on N64. There's a huge difference.

MK7 isn't too bad, but it suffers a bit from homogeneous racers. Basically, you have a lot of customization, and you can use it to basically make anyone handle like anything, but in practice it works out more like 'everyone drives exactly the same'. Also if you don't have 10 coins or close to it by the first lap then you're completely fucked. Also there's no Waluigi. However, I can say that the map selection is fantastic, and the overall quality of the racing is still there. It just doesn't feel as exciting/rage-inducing as, say, Mario Kart Wii.

Single-player and unlocking everything is suffering in MKWii.

Multiplayer is pretty great.

Online is either fun, too easy, or full of hackers/funky flamers.


Another potential issue is that there's maybe 4 good karts in the game, and the rest are all average to shit. Bikes are also super-OP, with the mach bike and flame runner (whatever the name is of the large bowser themed bike) being incredibly broken (Hence the problem with funky flamers).

Granted I think Transformed reused tracks as well, though I can't quite recall since it's been six months since I was playing seriously. The point is that I should be able to remember and hum to myself all of the songs in that game right now, on the spot, from memory, just as I can for just about any Mario Kart game except maybe Super Circuit, which I haven't played in a decade. The fact that I can only do that for maybe a handful of Sanic Kart songs is a serious problem in my book, and don't even get me started on the otherwise quite great CTR.

That's an interesting way of putting it. MKWii is definitely the most complex Mario Kart in recent memory, and requires the most time put into it to really learn it and master it.

No, you can choose whether you drift just by turning or drift with a button and power slide.

They made two different drift systems for MKWii. Manual and Automatic didn't refer to transmissions, but to drift systems. Manual is the traditional Mario Kart driving system, while Automatic will make you do 'autodrifts' when you turn far enough, but you don't really get boosts from it the way you get them from manual, so anyone on Auto is either a Wii Wheel user, a very inexperienced player, a bike user, or (most likely) at least 2 out of those 3.

My friends and I played an absolute tonne of MKWii over uni, getting to the point we chose to play with computers on Hard and items of Frantic and we still manage to win 90% of the time.

That's one of the things I don't like how people criticise Mario Kart. Yes items are incredibly luck based and they can completely ruin your lead, but play well and tactically and you can still almost always win if you have the skill for it. That's even with multiple blue shells in a row.

I completely understand, because that was how it was for me. After a week of owning it around launch, I stopped touching it out of sheer hatred for the horrid grand prix item balance (which is just downright cruel on higher engine classes). It took an entire school year of versus racing with my godly roommate to really learn the game. If you don't have friends to learn and rage with, then you probably shouldn't bother trying to learn it.

>>890751
Sounds identical to my experience. Our godmate could take most setups and finish with a 10 second lead if he really tried. Shit was insane, though as the year went on we slowly caught up and it became pretty damn intense.

Yes, but it's only a slight difference so you aren't completely fucked if you get hit by multiple items at once. It also caps at 10 so you don't get a huge advantage/disadvantage.

MK7 also kind of fixed the blue shell problem; it runs on the ground again and hits players like the N64 version, and when it gets close to the first player it goes airborne and explodes like the newer incarnations. It's a really good compromise. It has its flaws, mostly spelled out in >>890668 but it's still in my opinion the best MK game. Its Rainbow Road track is god-tier.

MK7 also has the original Rainbow Road, though they modernized it a little to not be as rapingly hard.

>>890309
Both of those were intentional.

When you got the delayed banana effect, you were supposed to slightly brake and then you'd get a symbol that signified you won't spin out. I liked that effect.

>>890747
You didn't need auto to bike. It still had boosts, just less powerful than the karts.


Polite sage for being 75% off-topic.

Oh yeah, I knew that you could still bike without auto. It's just that in my experience, auto bike is the most newbie-friendly option in MKWii. Anybody experienced will use Manual though.

because it looks (and is) the easiest route. It's the widest, has more guardrails and less obstacles. For the absolute shortest route you have to cross the super-slim bridge with no guardrails at all, but my preferred route is the one just a little to the right of that one. If I remember correctly, it's cross the bridge, then go left right left. You have to dodge some black spiny things but other than that it's easy and fast.

>> No.891050

I'm always surprised at MK64 being considered so good, I found it to be absolute ass, bad controls, terrible item balance, shitty boring tracks.

The only thing it did right was having a blue shell you could destroy.

Likewise, this picture is one of the two embodiments of MKWii in image form. The other is one of those "what I played/what I expected/what I got" where they played MKWii, expected MKDS 2, and instead got an angry old man, holding a wiimote sideways, surrounded by six blue shells.

I thought that you had to stop accelerating and tap the brakes to get the music note, just like when you start hydroplaning in the game (though don't actually try that if you really start hydroplaning, if that happens to you IRL, just flow like water). Does it really work if you accelerate and brake?

>> No.891459

Nothing like unlimited items in MKWii. Ever gets old. I just wish you could mic up with people to troll.

>> No.891461

Same, and that's happened to me enough times too. But when in a multiplayer match with friends that rage inducing ending is fun, and the game is designed with multiplayer in mind. The more you swear at the game the better it is, it's just the fact of Mario Kart with friends and arguably Nintendo's games are designed for local multiplayer over single player. Although that's getting into a different topic.

Alternatively you can attempt to play it tactically and if someone is just behind you then you slow down and let them take the hit. You have to use your wits to see if you're in a position to do that or not.
