The kids have had a few days where they have told me the “I’m bored” even though there is plenty to do and they have started saying that they are bored with the video games they do have to play so when Nintendo contacted us about reviewing the new Mario Kart 8 game I said yes 🙂
I am always a big fan of racing games for the kids and as a kid I remember going to my cousins house and playing Mario Kart and having a ton of fun. Something that was quite funny this year when we went to the family reunion is that one of my cousins brought his Wii U to set up and play and the game that he brought to play was Mario Kart 8. My kids warned him that they were awesome and would win (I am not sure he believed them since he is in his 20s) but since they kids have been testing it out for a few weeks now they totally won! I am pretty sure my cousin was quite shocked at how well a 9 year old and 7 year old can play compared to a 20-something who has been playing video games for a long time 😉
Mario Kart 8 Review
What McKenzie (Age 9) has to say about Mario Kart 8:
There are different characters that you can play Mario, Donkey Kong, Peach, Bowser, and more so you can pick who you want to play. You can play in single player or multiplayer so you don’t always have to play with someone or alone. You can also play as a battle mode or as the Grand Prix mode. You can also pick if you want a car or a bike as your vehicle. This game would be fun to play with friends and I can play with Logan and Alyssa and Mom or Dad since there are 4 players that can play. My favorite part of the game is when you get choose your character and then you have your favorite character and then you use that character to race.
What Logan (Age 7) Has to say about Mario Kart 8:
My favorite part of the game is where you get your stuff and you get a mystery box when you are racing. The game controls are easy but sometimes racing is hard because you have to beat people in the race. I like Donkey Kong and Baby Mario the most when I am picking my characters to race with. There are different races and my favorite is the 4 race cup race.
