This is the best game ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some tips though:
1. NEVER play on manual. Biggest mistake of my life. Always go automatic. ALWAYS.
2. Bowser is GREAT for hitting people!! THE best.
3. Baby Peach is the underdog. Princess Peach is where it's at
4. ALWAYS LOOK AT THE RIGHT SCREEN. Once, I was playing with my friends (so a total of 4 players) and I was FIRST for the first time ever (which was a HUGE surprise because I have never not been 12th) and then I realized I was looking at my friend's screen. When I finally realized which screen was mine, I was crashing into a wall and not moving, AND I was still on my first lap (everyone else was on their 3rd).
5. BE CAREFUL. This game can and WILL ruin all your friendships (no comment)
6. If you and another player ever want the same character, distract them. My favourite distraction is to honk like an elephant or screeching like a banishee to distract them in order to choose your character first. Why not take turns, you may ask. Because sharing is OVERRATED.
7. Everyone thinks the bullet is the best but everytime I get it, I'll go to ninth place and IMMEDIATELY fall off again. It's nothing but false hope. Whats better is Blooper (the squid-like inky thingy). This way you're SURE to get all your friends (refer to point 5)
8. Good luck.

The Mario Kart series is a staple of the Nintendo brand and one of its most beloved franchises alongside Smash Bros and Mario Party. The adaptation for the Wii does not disappoint either. The game looks pretty and with each of the different maps having some aspect that separates it from the others. Speaking of, the game has a wide variety of tracks, ensuring tons of replay-ability. Using the Wii remote as a steering wheel to control movement is fun and unique and really makes the sense of driving the Kart feel more involved. The games single-player allows for fun competition against the AI and is what allows you to unlock more tracks. However, where these kinds of game really shine is when playing with your friends and family. It is a blast with other to play with, making a very competitive, but light-hearted atmosphere with laughter and a bit of frustration. Mario Kart Wii is a blast to play and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't already have it, which you probably do, if you have a Wii. Rating: 4 out of 5

Appropriate for all ages, a fun game for the whole family! With a little practice,(actually a whole lot) you will be getting under 2 minutes in Delfino Square and rocketing through Bowser's Castle like the rest of us. Make sure to take breaks though, I'm putting a 10/10 star ADDICTION ALERT! :P

One of my friends and I got addicted with Mario kart. We were the blue team and succeeding with defeating the red team got to be so much fun! We brought snacks and drinks down to where we were playing. We were practically sitting on the couch playing this game for 3-5 hours at least! Having so much fun on this one course, with flashing disco ramps in a big stadium. That was our favourite! All in all if I were to rate this game out of 10 it would definitely be a 10 out of 10! Playing with the stealing wheel is more fun then playing without one, for sure.

I don't care about the steering wheel, but it doesn't matter cuz the numchuk is there for me. As a former N64 owner, I loved seeing Mario Raceway, Sherbet Land, DK Jungle Parkway and Bowser's Castle. Funny, though because my favorite track is GCN DK Mountain.
