The Alluring Ways Of Mario Kart Wii

By Martin Bliss

I'm in love with Mario Kart Wii. There, I said it. This game has gotten the best of me, and I've been addicted to it for well over a year now. It's crazy to admit the truth, but I don't see myself letting up on this game any time soon either.

If I told you that just about anyone could play this game and pick it up quickly, I wouldn't be lying. I have a five year old cousin who was able to win a race in the novice mode her first time trying.

I love this video game for so many different reasons. Dating back to the original Mario Kart release in the early 90s, this game stays true to its original form and gives us so many of the elements we've grown to love. At the same time, it really masters its integration with the capabilities of the Wii.

Using a wireless wheel, you can literally steer your cart as you would with any regular cart. The challenges are limitless and the accuracy is downright scary.

As far as the levels on the game, they're all very challenging and a lot of fun. One of the best things to take advantage of in Mario Kart Wii is the online mode, which happens to be my personal favorite way to play the game.

By playing against people from all around the world, you can wirelessly connect online and join a race with up to 12 other cars within minutes. This is endless fun and I find myself racing for hours. The ranking system keeps me coming back for more.

As far as the ranks are concerned, you'll gain ranking points when you do well in a race, and you'll lose them when you slack. The best part about it is the fact that it measures strength of competition, making it accurate and fair.

If you own a Wii, I'd seriously recommend checking this game out. I haven't really put it down since I bought it.
