Mario Kart 7 is a great Mario Kart game, one of the best in fact. Its controls are pitch perfect. The gliding is great, underwater is cool but not that big of an addition. The music is nice, but not on the top level of Nintendo tunes.
The tracks are amazing. The new ones are amazing additions, and the classic tracks are some of the best of the best. The battle mode is fun, but the racing is a much better part of the package.
The online is some of the best on a Nintendo system. With communities, making it easy to race with like-minded gamers with no need for friend codes. The game runs at 60fps with online and 3D its that great. Speaking of which the graphics are very pretty looking, colorful and bright. All in all this game is a great addition to the 3DS library and a must have title.
Final Score 4 and a half stars out of 5:
