As a relative newcomer to Mario Kart, this one is definitely more fun than the Wii game. And visually beautiful too! Really glad you're digging the game, and I like this review. Should have scored it an 11 or 12 though.

I haven't commented because I didn't read the review because I plan to write one of my own sometime soon and I'd rather keep my mind fresh. As for Zig's point about enjoying this more than the Wii version, though, I'd have to agree. This is a much better representation of the Mario Kart I love than the Wii version was. Of course, the Wii version will likely retain its place as the best-selling Mario Kart of all time for... all time.

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

I agree with both of you: the Wii version felt like (and this is a big piece of my review, Jason, when you do read it) me racing the races without much care for the other racers. This is the opposite, with tons of player interaction, and that's what I think Mario Kart excels at.
