Mario Cart Wii
Title: Mario Cart
In my time reviewing games I haven't given enough justice to the wii. As the wii has produced oodles of bad titles, this one is a shining light.
Mario Cart is most likely the most simplistic racing game you or I will ever play. You take control of all the classic Nintendo Characters. Mario, Luigi, Peach....the list goes on and on. The goal of course is to get from start to finish, in first place, obviously. In between you will have a good 'ol time throwing shells and bombs at your fellow racers. The game has a reasonable amount of characters and maps, so if your the type that has a thing for unlockables, you'll be there for a while.
The game play is very simple. Steer around the track dodging obstacles, and running into power ups. The game is more fun when you play it with the wii wheel. It is basically a steering wheel. It may seem simple, but it makes the game way funner.
In short, mario cart wii is a very simple, fun game that anyone can play. Break it out at a dull party, and you'll be having a great time in no time.
I give it a 4/5
