So who's got this then?

The game looks glorious on handheld, and is as addictive as ever. As someone who never bought the DLC, I'm enjoying the additional content.

Picked it up for Christmas been playing split screen races and battle modes with connor and its been a lot of fun.

Looks great on the handheld and even better on TV the detail for tracks and characters is amazing.

Loving a lot of the new tracks and got lots of nostalgia for the old ones yoshi circuit from N64 a particular highlight.

Tried all cc classes 200pp is fast as hell, went a few races thinking game was faulty but it was the smart steering hampering play, switched it off and controls where a lot more fluid.

Very impressed so far put in a lot of hours already it's another winner from ninty.

Tried this with hdr activated on my tv and the bump in colours and graphics makes the game all the more sweet.

Did two tours on 100cc detail in the tracks as you race along is excellent, same old mk hit a lot with red, blue shell combos but AI going to hate when you are leader I suppose :rolleyes:
