Email: Mario Kart

One more thing Malstrom. Mario Kart’s core is still good, but there’s some crap on top that starting to make it off-putting. Namely vehicle and character selection. You used to be able to play with everyone and everything to figure out what works best for your style of play. Now there are so many choices that you will practically never figure that out satisfactorily. Mario Kart DS had the idea max for configurations in the series. Now you’re practically either poring over stats or you’re just picking what looks best to you. The only exception being that Tanooki Mario is the outright best racer to pick. He towers too far over everyone else, he gets a higher, more balanced set of base stats when compared to everyone else.

I have found myself annoyed at poring over all the stats. It is hard enough just to pick a racer!
