Mario Kart 7 is THE game the 3DS has been in dire need of. Sadly, it raises the bar so high for almost everything else, most 3DS games don't even look like they belong on the same system. Get it now....Go To Full Review

As complete a racing game as you could hope to play. All that's good about the previous Karts, distilled and mixed with a trillion ideas of its own. Excellent....Go To Full Review

Mario Kart 7 packs a number of tracks and gameplay modes, the roster is not the largest there’s been but unlocking the secret characters will make for a challenge. The new underwater and gliding sections of tracks and the ability to customize your kart to gain an edge in these terrains add a great new spin on the original Mario Kart formula. The polished online play is the best it’s ever been in Mario Kart....Go To Full Review

Mario Kart 7 is a great game and one that should definitely be on the Christmas lists of 3DS owners this year....Go To Full Review

Mario Kart 7 is an exquisitely polished game with few flaws. Blue Shells are, as they always have been, unavoidable race-ruining bullshit, for instance. Don't take my jokes about the game's frustrations lightly, as its last-second turnabouts are as frequent as they are enraging, and some players may not be able to handle the disappointment....Go To Full Review

Mario is the world's premier Princess Rescuer, and for that he's beloved. But he's arguably even more appreciated for his night job: a go-kart racer. With its new features built on top of a foundation that's held up for nearly two decades, Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS demonstrates that even though Mario himself is aging, his driving skills are as sharp as ever. ...Go To Full Review

Overall, the game is remarkable; it has a few flaws here and there, but not many at all to be honest. The courses are outstanding and vivid, and the overall gameplay is astounding. I highly recommend picking up Mario Kart 7 if you haven't already....Go To Full Review

I've played every Mario Kart game to this date. Even with the inclusion of Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart 7 is likely the best Mario Kart game to this date. The additions of gliding and vehicle customization have brought me more enjoyment than any other feature in the series, and combine that with the mass amount of unlockable characters, vehicles, the solid online play, and 3D?...Go To Full Review

The core of Mario Kart is pretty solid at this point and I think it's safe to have it evolve in a pretty staid and traditional manner," Miyamoto said recently. Mario Kart 7 reflects that, in its title and in its design: it's robust, but it lacks some creative effort on Nintendo's part. ...Go To Full Review

Track layout tweaks, customization quirks, 3D effects, first-person karting, and a power-up that adds to the general level of kart chaos by letting one player unleash seven items. MK7 isn't a kart game with a defining voice -- it's just a solid little kart game with a bunch of little tweak...Go To Full Review

Mario Kart 7 is still Mario Kart, and in many ways it's a ‘Best of’ Mario Kart that does very little to push the series forwards. Still, who cares? It’s comfortably the best of the Kart racing breed and one of the best handheld games you can play, with great tracks, great gameplay and excellent online features. With this and Super Mario 3D Land, the 3DS is finally coming into its own....Go To Full Review

Mario Kart 7 is not doing anything radically different or reinventing the formula. All it is is a Mario Kart game, and if you love Mario Kart, then you’ll most likely love this game too. The tracks are well designed, the kart customization and flying bits are neat addition, and there are plenty of hard swings to be had from the item balancing. Nintendo made another one of those games, and it still works....Go To Full Review

Mario Kart 7 is up there with the likes of Bomberman, Street Fighter and GoldenEye as one of the all-time multiplayer greats. And while the game is starting to show its age and display a slight lack of imagination, it's safe to say that there aren't too many Nintendo 3DS games that can match the enjoyment derived from Mario Kart 7....Go To Full Review
