I got my game... and of course no pin set I just hate the fact that it was advertised in store on the counter for like a month yet at the end of it all, they know absolutely fuck all about the reward and don't even make a damn effort to try and fix it. So I'll call back tomorrow to speak to the manager or email them and hopefully get this resolved.
Toad Circuit: very easy, simple first track as in any Mario Kart Daisy Hills: some fun stuff going on here. More twists and turns and more gliding, I like it. Cheep Cheep Lagoon: great track. Alternate paths, shortcuts, underwater and gliding. Fun stuff Shy Guy Bazaar: A little underwhelming but maybe will grow on me. There seems to be clear cut faster route through this one.
Wuhu Loop: Love it! The music is an awesome Wii Sports Resort remix. A little short overall since it's just one lap, but it's really nice to race around Wuhu. Shortcuts and alternate paths galore. Mario Circuit: Not bad, it's cool that you go through Peach's castle, but other than that pretty simple track. Music Park: Creative and fun. The music goes along with your racing, love it. Rock Rock Mountain: cool track. Looks like Coopa Cape a bit at first, but becomes its own track later. Interesting vertical section and lots of strategic gliding in this one.
A few comments: - I like the end of race music, it's a remix of the Mario Kart 64 theme. - Don't like that time is not tracked in GP mode. - Coins are gonna add a ton of depth to the racing. - You can get a mushroom in first, and out boost a blue shell. - Items seem more balanced and less chaotic, 8 racers instead of 12 is a big factor. - Music overall is good - Customization is fun
Some interesting choices made for this game. I love that you can go to the 3DS dashboard while playing online (I was spectating). However, I still can't change my kart or character without resetting the game? That's kind of ridiculous no? Why can't I just pick a new character before each race?
You can outboost a blue shell? Awesome news... none of the reviews I read/watched mentioned that.
@kgtennispro Sorry, don't quote me on that. I tried it once and failed but I think my timing was off. It should be possible, it was in MK Wii. Anyway, it's cool that you can get a mushroom in first. It's really rare, but it's there.
