|About me/Random Stuff|
Hi guys! I'm Vezok7 and I'm a Mario/Nintendo game addict!
I live in California, USA and have been playing Mario games since 2007.
I remember playing hours of Super Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Bros. Wii when I was younger. I quickly became a huge Mario fan! Although my first console was a Wii, I have owned a DS Lite, a Wii U, a 3DS, a 3DS XL, a Gameboy Advance SP, a Nintendo 64, and two Wiis.
I moved on to my first MK game, Mario Kart Wii and have also owned Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Kart 7, and Mario Kart 8. I own every New Super Mario Bros. game. My favorite is New Super Mario Bros. Wii mainly because of the awesome power ups and the great control. Plus it looked a lot better than New Super Mario Bros. for the DS. I also love it because of the memories I have of it when I played it with my friends years ago.
Super Mario Galaxy>Super Mario Galaxy 2
Why? The story/power ups/concepts were new, not recycled, the power ups are 100% better in the original, the galaxies are fantastic, and I feel like the sequel sort of babies the player through the game while the original is legitimately challenging at times. Although there is much more content in the sequel, I feel as though the green stars don't really add anything but frustration and hours of searching for something that feels very pointless. The grandmaster galaxy is difficult but it isn't as original as the trial galaxies in the first game. Also, the overworld. Oh my gosh. The overworld in the sequel is almost nothing in comparison to the massive colossus that is the comet observatory. It is super fun to explore and it somehow feels more fun moving on from dome to dome instead of just scrolling from world to world as in the sequel. Oh yeah, and yoshi. Yoshi may have been exciting but he didn't change the gameplay in almost any way.
So to me, thats why the original is better.
My favorite Mario Kart game is Mario Kart 8. Not only does it look amazing, it also has some of the best tracks I have every seen in a Mario Kart game. They are original, eye-catching, and just plain fun to race on. I could go on and on about this game. Honestly, almost all of the tracks are fun every single time you race on them whereas in other MK games like MK7, you feel bored when you race on the same tracks over and over. The retro tracks were redone very well and I was pleased with the selection this time around. Although MK8 took the cake, Mario Kart Wii if definitely my second favorite. It revitalized Mario Kart. MKDS was not nearly as fun as MK:DD in several aspects. The tracks were lower quality and less fun and it wasn't anything new. There were also very few characters. MKWii was a huge improvement. I mean, 34 characters? WOW! The new tracks were fun, but not quite as fun as MK8's. I do have one major problem with MK8 however. Battle mode. Not fun at all. I don't see why they messed it up so bad. Even battle mode in MK7 is better, and there were only 6 different battle courses there! Using tracks wasn't a good idea. I don't know if they were being lazy (I doubt it) or just trying something new, but I really hope they fix it for the next mario kart game. Battle mode on MKWii was great. The retro tracks were fun, the new tracks were more fun, and it was a great experience for all players. MK7 was a setback in the series for sure. I don't think the gliding ablilty or the underwater areas added anything gameplay-wise. The retro track selection was less than impressive (although a few i.e. Waluigi Pinball and Airship Fortress were fine). Only a few of the new tracks impressed me where every single one in MK8 blew me away.
So thats my commentary on some of the Mario Kart Series.
