Mario Kart 8 review


Nintendo stuns us with the best Mario Kart yet.

This is Nintendo at its very best, putting on a masterclass of multiplayer gaming, both online and off. We’re well past suggesting this is the game that makes the Wii U worthwhile (there have been plenty already), but this is the one that will appeal...
