Skidding on to the Nintendo 3DS comes Mario Kart 3DS.

Pick your favourite Mushroom Kingdom character and aim for the chequered flag in the latest addition to the popular Mario Kart family.

With new tricks under the hood Mario Kart 3DS, for the first time, gives you the opportunity to customise your karts to give you the edge in a race and gliding karts!

Mario Kart 3DS will have racers careening through courses inspired by loved Nintendo such as Donkey Kong Country and Wii Sports own Wuhu Island.

  • Please Note: 3DS titles are not compatible with standard Nintendo DS consoles
  • Different accessories to give you the edge in a race, will can choose big tyres for the off-road advantage or small tyres for the city courses?
  • New abilities for your karts such as the new glider ability that lets you glide over short cuts after you've caught some big air. But that's not the only new ability in Mario Kart 3DS...
  • Choose to race as your Mii or a Mushroom Kingdom character. But who would you rather see on that podium your Mii or Mario?
  • SpotPass and StreetPass features. How can you pass this up?
  • Battle it out online via wifi or face off against your friends in Mario Kart 3DS multiplayer action. You may lose friends but the glory is worth it!

Mario Kart 7 brings back the coins that were used in the very first Mario Kart game on SNES which is now 20 years ago! By collecting the coins your cart goes faster and another intresting fact is the first eight racers are the same ones from Super Mario Kart on the SNES too which are Mario, Luigi, Peach, Donkey Kong, Toad, Bowser, Koopa Troopa and Yoshi. The 3D effect in Mario Kart 7 is excellent and I love the new hang glider sections and the underwater parts of the tracks are pretty cool too. You can use the L or X buttons to fire the weapons and we have got the fire flower at last! The other two new items are the Super Leaf which gives you a tail and you can attack the other drivers with it and the very rare Lucky Seven which equips you with seven different items simultaneously.
You can steer your kart two different ways by using the stick or if you switch the game into cockfit view point by pressing the d-pad button upwards, you are able to steer when tilting your 3DS like Mario Kart on the Wii for intense racing fun. The new tracks are some of the best yet and I get to race the Kalimari Desert track from the classic N64 Mario Kart game at long last again. Another good reason for collecting the coins as you race around the different tracks by the way is that the more coins you have enables you to unlock new kart parts.
Playing Mario Kart 7 is even more fun online or against a friend whom has the game on their 3DS too. Only Nintendo seem to be able to make games that are just as fun 20 years ago again and again, and that really shows how their games stand the test of time unlike many other games over the years.

 Best Mario Kart for DS yet!

This new mario kart introduces some great new items (like fireballs), and also allows you to glide through the air and go underwater. The 3D graphics are great and the game is easy to pick up and play. The online multiplayer feature is good, I'm on a 2mb connection and it didn't even feel like it was lagging at all. You can also play with friends via download play, so even if your friend doesn't have the game they can play along with you (even on the grand prix mode). You can even customise the wheels on your cart and the type of glider you're using. This gives people the chance to not just unlock carts & characters but wheels and gliders too!
This game is good fun and I'd recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed Mario Kart on Wii or the DS. It's a great new addition to the mario series!

 A solid Performer, but it is far too short.

Well, 5 hours into playing the game, and I've finished the grand prix on 100cc and 150cc, it is way, way too short.
Other downsides? Well, the Single Player is Poor, very, very boring, There isn't enough customisation (3 aspects) to warrant adding it, there are only 8 tournaments to do, which means a piffling 32 tracks to play, and who's idea was it to add the mii's? They sound like 2 year olds. The difficulty also just isn't there unless you opt straight for the 150cc class.

On the upside, playing it on multiplayer is epic, great fun, but the balloon war can get tiresome pretty quickly, as you can't unlock anything through it. You can, however, team up with a friend to do the tournaments, meaning you both unlock things, all you have to do (if you're not competitive) is make sure one of the players wins.
(It's great fun if you are competitive though)

Graphics, sound, controls are all pretty solid, nothing extraordinary to report, but better than some other karting racers out there. Having it 3ds only seems a bit odd, there's not really enough 3D in it.

Overall, 2 sides of the extreme, on the one hand, it's a properly fun multiplayer game, but play it on your own, and you'll be trading it in within a few hours.
Was expecting more, but it is the strongest Mario Kart to date, but again, that's not saying much. A few more diverse tracks would have been welcome, there are mirror tracks, but in my eyes, that doesn't count.

 Best multiplayer 3DS game yet!

I really enjoyed Mario Kart 7 :) It's the first game that I believe really captures the essence of the 3DS's pick up and play style Nintendo have been going for. Play a race, put it in my pocket and play another when I have another free moment! The Streetpass functionality is really good and the online play has the same greatness as its Wii cousin. The 3D effect works great in a subtle but good-looking way, it gives more life to the vibrant tracks. Vehicle customisation really adds some replay value, you're going to need to play a lot of races for those coins to get vehicle parts! The new courses are great and the retro ones are well chosen not to mention the underwater and flying sections of the game! Overall a really great package! If you own a 3DS this should certainly be the game to own as of right now!

 awesome karting action!

i dunno what the guy above me is on about but this game is amazing. yes it may be a bit on the easy side at times but there is loads here to keep you busy. for example i spend ages trying to beat one of the developer times in time trail. wasnt easy but i got there eventually. havent tried the multiplayer yet but will do once i get home from uni as halls do not have wireless.

in short buy this
