Play Mario Kart 7 and take the racing experience to new heights as you soar through the sky, dive underwater on the Nintendo 2DS, and also enjoy Mario Kart in 3D on the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL.
There are a range of game modes to try in solo mode, like Grand Prix and Battle Mode, but you can also play with friends or connect to the web to race up to eight people anywhere in the world. With eight cups in which to compete and 32 courses in total (including 16 you'll see for the first time in Mario Kart 7), there is lots to enjoy. There are even time trials to help you hone your skills – just pick a course, set the best time you can, and race against 'ghost karts' saved from previous record laps.
When it comes to choosing characters to represent you on the road, you'll find all your favourite classic drivers to pick from, and you can also let your very own Mii get behind the wheel! There are new characters to enjoy in Mario Kart 7 too, including Lakitu (the lightweight Koopa who usually counts down the start of the race) and Metal Mario, who is just as heavy as his appearance suggests, though his top speed is still incredibly impressive. Elsewhere, don't be fooled by the elegant Honey Queen, as she can hold her own on the track and won't be nudged off the track so easily!
For those looking to battle others, Balloon Battle is a great way to play. Take on other characters and aim to burst all their balloons using items – the one who breaks the most within the time limit will take the top spot. In Coin Battle, the focus is much more on what you can collect – just choose a stage and grab as many coins as possible to emerge victorious. For multiplayer modes, you'll need to buy or download Mario Kart 7, but only one game card will be required for up to eight Nintendo 3DS users to join in the fun. However, players without a game card will automatically have Shy Guy as their selected character.
Not only can you race registered friends, but you can also take on previous opponents and others you have met through StreetPass. You can set the rules of play and exchange data with other StreetPass and SpotPass opponents, exchange Mii characters automatically, and save things like player names, ghost data, and other community information.
Key features of the game:
- New kart abilities add to the wild fun for which the games are known. On big jumps, a kart deploys a wing to let it glide over a track shortcut. When underwater, a propeller pops out to help the kart cruise across the sea floor.
- Players can show their own style by customising their vehicles with accessories that give them a competitive advantage. For instance, giant tyres help a kart drive off-road, while smaller tires work best on city courses.
- Choose to race as your favourite Mushroom Kingdom characters, or even as your Mii character.
- New courses take players on wild rides over a mountain road, on city streets, and through a dusty desert. Nintendo fans will recognise new courses on Wuhu Island and in the jungles from Donkey Kong Country Returns.
- The game supports both SpotPass and StreetPass features.
- Players can compete in local wireless matches or online over a broadband internet connection.

Well done Nintendo - another superb game!
Ok so, old skool this game is and a retro classic it might be but this is a definite modern re-incarnation of a game that brought me so much happiness as a this title did.
This incarnation of the game is ever game players dream, the graphics are smooth and crisp, the sound is clear, punchy and as catching as previous titles and the gameplay is as always fun and immersive.
The price attached to this game is great in comparison to the game you actually get and it was a definite positive when I was looking for games to go with my two boys new 2ds xl for Christmas. I also bought the new Starfox for them, which is another retro great.
This version has fantastic graphics and 32 great courses to race on including 16 classics from Mario Kart history and a fair few from the recent wii version as well which have transferred successfully to the portable version. For those who enjoy the nostalgia of previous tracks the retro courses are listed below:
Shell Cup: N64 Luigi Raceway, GBA Bowser Castle 1, Wii Mushroom Gorge,DS Luigi's Mansion
Banana Cup: N64 Koopa Beach, SNES Mario Circuit 2, Wii Coconut Mall, DS Waluigi Pinball
Leaf Cup: N64 Kalimari Desert, DS DK Pass, GCN Daisy Cruiser, Wii Maple Treeway
Lightning Cup: Wii Koopa Cape, GCN Dino Dino Jungle, DS Airship Fortress, SNES Rainbow Road
New to Mario Kart is also the option to customise your kart choosing different wheels and gliders to storm around the tracks.
Mario Kart 7 also features online multiplayer which works fantastically well and even keeps stats against those you have raced against. If you also street pass a fellow Mario Karter you can get the opportunity to race against them when next you're both online.
I've really enjoyed this game and love having it easily available to play at any time in portable form.
A must-buy for the 3DS
It's Mario driving go-kart, you are picking up mystery boxes and getting upgrades to slow down other competitors
it has several level of difficulties so even little kids will be able to play it without getting frustrated as they'll quickly learn how to drive
besides original owner (10 y.o.), my other son also plays it sometimes, and he is still not 5 and enjoys playing beginner levels
recommended to any Super Mario fan, and even if your not, try playing it and you'll become one
This game is so much better than normal MarioKart for DS. The quality is seventy times better and, though the 3D effects are brilliant, they are a little distracting in certain courses, so I just have the 3D effect turned off most of the time.
I love the fact that you can customize your kart. You unlock new wheels, vehicles and gliders by collecting coins in races. Some vehicles are really random which I think is really cool!
There is no 'vs' option so you can only play Grand Prix, Time Trial, Coin Battle and Balloon Battle.
The 'Grand Prix' mode is good because most of the races are new.
'Time Trials' are alright but it's quite hard to beat the computer.
In Coin and Balloon Battles, there are only six courses to choose from and five of them are new.
'Coin Battles' are cool but they are quite hard on the new tracks.
'Balloon Battles' are very easy especially on the new tracks.
I also love the fact that, as well as the original characters, there are plenty of new characters, too.
I haven't tried 'Local Multiplayer' mode yet so I don't know what that's like.
I would recommend this game to people who enjoyed the original MarioKart.
Overall, this game is absolutely amazing!
I love the different choices of cars and wheels and they make very interesting and funny combinations. I do find with playing on 3DS that my thumb hurts after a while because it isn't in a very comfortable position during racing.
I like the coin collection during races and that unlocks more choices when choosing your racing vehicle and wheels. Alot of new circuits that aren't on the previous Mario which are very interesting and exciting. There are about half a dozen circits that were on the previous Mario game. There are three new items to blast your oponents which are very good.
All in all a very good game and would recommend this for anybody who wants to enjoy pure fun
