    Mario Kart Wii: A taste of what's to come

    We'll have a full review of Mario Kart Wii soon, but until then check out his new video that the guys from WiiNintendo have put together. It takes you through a walkthrough of the menus and shows you all of the tracks that will be available, including the unlockable ones.
    Read more.

    Re: Mario Kart Wii: A taste of what's to come

    Well I have just done the first cup - its lots of fun! The wheel takes a few laps to get used to, but its a quick learning curve and is MUCH more fun than using control sticks.

    Feels the right size/weight for me, and pretty accurate. Lots left to learn still (like the new tracks/items) but really enjoyed that cup, going to be a struggle to not play with this all day..sadly I have to do some work

    Steve - yes we do, here's mine

    Re: Mario Kart Wii: A taste of what's to come

    Damn, I'm not looking forward to reading the HEXUS review. If this is as fun as I believe it will be, I may have to shell out some £200 to pick up a Wii and the game, eeep.

    One thing I have to know, and fans should be able to tell, is this; how does the fun factor of Mario Kart Wii compare to the fun factor of Super Mario Kart on SNES?

    Also, is Battle Mode available? If so, is Battle Mode 4 track available? The one with the colour coded zones. God, I was master of that!

    I just watched half an hour of that video and it actually looks like it'd pee me right off after a while. For a start blue shells are awful!
