The 'Shroom:Issue LVII/Special Review I
My Favorite Game: Mario Kart Wii
After graduating from college, a friend sent to me a Wii console, along with a variety of video games, including Mario Kart Wii. Within a few weeks I have played all of the video games, but I literally fell in love with Mario Kart Wii. I praise the game for its exhilarating features, and for the time Nintendo took to develop the wonderful game. Its exhilaration and addictiveness made it the best-selling Mario game for the Wii console.
Mario Kart Wii has a variety of characters, as well as a collection of karts and motorbikes to choose from. My favorite character is the Heavy-Weight Mii, and my favorite vehicle is the Flame Runner. The two go well together! My least favorite character is King Boo. That ghost scares me with his death-frightening sounds! And besides, he doesn't have a bonus in anything except for handling and off-road. Bah, who cares? My least favorite vehicle, I sadly have to say, is the Bit Bike / Nano Bike. Too slow, drifts outwards (which I can't stand!) and too light! Once I raced in Rainbow Road with the Bit Bike, and although I was in first, that annoying Bowser knocked me off right at the edge, and down I went.
My favorite course is Wario's Gold Mine. It's literally like a roller-coaster ride, and I love roller coasters. The course isn't too difficult either. My least favorite course is the SNES Ghost Valley 2. That course is scary and annoying. I do not achieve an adequate time when I race on this course in Time Trials, and I'm blaming the constant background distraction for it.
In about two months, all characters, courses, vehicles, and all locked features in the game were unlocked. Unfortunately, I was busy at work since the beginning at 2011, so I haven't played the game for an entire year. Hopefully when I get to go back home, I will pick up the Wii Remote and bring back the memories from the wonderful game.
Its successor, Mario Kart 7, seems like a great game as well. However, I do not have a 3DS console, so there's no use buying it at the moment. I hope I do get to play it someday, though!
