Mario Kart 8 is a great buy. Fun Items most of the time. Great multiplayer. The one thing that upset me was the amount of coin items I kept getting and the lack of protection I had in 1st place. The game's gameplay for racing is great but the battle mode isn't up to par. I would buy this with the intention of playing with friends, but on your own isn't so grand. Would have liked to have seen more singleplayer/multiplayer (for local and online) game modes next time around.

It is a would buy.
