Mario Kart Wii is a racing game for the Wii made by Nintendo, and it's a very fun game for people of all ages. Features of Mario Kart Wii include Online play using the Wi-fi, the Wii Wheel, and more!

Gameplay Edit

Mario Kart Wii returns the franchise to single driver gameplay, moving away from the approach of its predecessor, Mario Kart DS on the DS. Like Mario Kart DS, the game contains sixteen new tracks while also including sixteen classic tracks.

The biggest change from others in the series is that Bikes have been added to the mix. Each weight class has six karts and six bikes. Karts are heavier and can push bikes off-road while bikes can get a few extra Speed Boosts (via Wheelies) and a better turbo boost., but are slower.

Battle Mode has changed significantly from others in the series in that the player can no longer have a full fledged free-for-all and instead the players work on teams. This controversial change is also points-based and the Bob-omb and Shine Sprite battles were cut and replaced by coin runners.

There are two other racing modes: Online, where you race with up to 11 other players (or 10, if you invited a Guest to play) and the Tournament Mode. Every month there are two tournaments created by Nintendo, where you must do all kinds of things: beat a boss, complete a course quickly with lots of Golden Mushrooms and much more. You can access the current Tournament via the Mario Kart Channel option in the Main Menu.

Also, Tricks can be done for a speed boost. The Spin Turn technique has also returned from Mario Kart 64.
