I admit I was not overly enthusiastic to purchase Mario Kart 8 again, considering how much I played and loved it back on Wii U. I was never a giant fan of Battle Mode in previous versions, so having that fully reinstated for the Deluxe version didn't feel, to me at least, like a mayor draw card. However, I took the plunge in recent flash sale markdowns, and although initially underwhelmed I can now say that after getting both my six-year old, wifey AND Oupa to rock it out in Grand Prix mode, I am back on track with the Mario Kart hype-train! Improved sharper visuals run at super-smooth 1080p resolution, motion controls feel tighter using Joycons than on WiiU and Tabletop-mode is great when playing with Single Joycons, too. The Steering and Acceleration assists have made this much more accessible, and like I mentioned, thanks to those diminutive controllers, my daughter is really loving the game now, where previously she struggled with larger controllers. Online works fine as before, and I even used the Miimaker on Switch for the first time to update my Mii (greying hair and whatnot...). So yes, it's an expensive double-dip, but it remains as impossible as ever to resist Mario Kart 8's charms, particularly when it showcases the strengths of the Switch so well.

Picture the scene. You're first place and have a music box item. You're so confident that no matter when that blue shell comes, you'll be protected. And then comes the Boo item. It giggles like its mocking you for what is about to happen next as it steals that music box from your inventory. You're a little irritated but figure you'll get a new item soon, until you hear that distinct beeping...here it comes. You get hit by that blue shell, you lose 3 coins and are stopped dead in your tracks. Frustrated, you curse under your breath but regain your composure. You start moving, but wait, what's this other beeping sound you hear? "No..." you say in horror, there's a red shell coming and you have no weapons and before you can reach the next item box, you're slammed by the red shell, another 3 coins gone and you're now in third place. You shout at the TV: "THIS GAME IS SO CROOKED! (foul word redacted)". You gather your bearings and figure that you've got enough time left to make it back to first place but before you can finish that thought, you just got struck by lightning, 3 coins gone again and now you're 8th...yes 8th. Before you even realise it, your controller is now lodged in the TV, your mouth is spouting words you never knew existed and your clothes are torn. This game shows no mercy. You may think I'm exaggerating at how often and quickly you get hit by items, but I kid you not, I got blue shelled thrice in a single race, I had combo's done to me that should not even be possible (Boo item, lightning, red shell, red shell again, blue shell) which completely made me lose the race and at night I dream of putting my foot through my screen. This game is pure evil. 10 out of 10

You can't get better that this, it deserves 6 stars, if you could've given that! Absolutely fantastic.

Very awesome title to have while waiting for Splatoon and Arms to come out. No regrets. Very good aesthetics and all content unlocked from the get-go.
