  • Online Multiplayer
  • Battle Modes
Cons
  • Could Use Boss Battles

Performance

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe runs smoothly on the Nintendo Switch with virtually no lag even when the courses seem to take on a lot of action at once. During the races you can hold two items, which is always fun, and changes dynamics of the race much more. You can choose from a variety of wheels, body, and parachute options to fully customize your vehicle, similar to the Wii u version. If for any reason when the races get boring, there are plenty of new battle modes to play with. If you are looking for a stealth action video game that was released in the early 2000s, open our Monaco Whats Yours is Mine review XBLA.

Design

This Mario Kart game is a work of art in full 1080p. It fully utilizes the graphic abilities of the Nintendo Switch with race courses that look as amazing and as imaginative as the Mario Kart game series has always been. Whether you’re playing online or multiplayer, the games are surely to run smoothly with no lag to worry about, which is surprising when compared to other online experiences in other Nintendo Switch games. Finally, the game still takes risks by adding new battle modes that make the game worth experiencing even though it is still much similar to previous versions. But, if you want to check out one of the best Mario games ever, look at our Mario and Rabbids kingdom review.

Value

This new game is a solid way to kill time by racing against your friends or the online community. It is a beautiful game to play because the race courses look extraordinary. The fun can’t stop when there are battle modes to hop on, or a plethora of cups to win. This is a great game to add to your collection because it holds near and dear to the original concept of the game, and the nostalgia is always there.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review Wrap Up

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great game to add to your collection of Nintendo Switch games. It is a family friendly game that even younger kids will enjoy now because of the simplified controls, such as smart steering. It is exciting to see characters from out of the series because it opens the door to more selections in the future. Hopefully in the future we see an option to customize a track all our own, but for now it is a solid game to own your friends at.
