    On preorder here. It's probably sat at work on my desk though, waiting for me to open it!

    I played it most of Saturday and love it.

    Online play is easy and fun. Love the bikes. Back to proper MK roots - streets ahead of Double Dash on the cube. Old familiar tracks can be unlocked (Bowsers Castle anyone).

    Wii wheel is superb. In short I love everything about it.

    Great game - I've had all the series since N64 and I've been waiting for this every since Wii came out.

    However, going online has highlighted the fact that I need to improve wi-fi sig to the wii - being buried low down underneath the TV in the furthest corner away from the computer room doesn't help

    I'm i right in thinking its 11b?

    If so I might dig out an old AP and dedicate that to it.

    regards
    Simon

    I played it round a mates last night and it is superb. Probably the best Mario Kart to date and easily the best game on Wii.

    I also think it's cool the fact you have various vehicles to choose from and we also noticed that there were special tracks included from the SNES, N64 as well as other previous versions!

    The game comes with one wheel by default, but to be honest we weren't overly impressed with it. Brilliant idea in principle but it will certainly take some getting used to. Using the standard controls showed better success at finishing in a high position.

    To conclude, if you own a Wii you should buy this game!

    I got it on Friday but only got round to playing it today. It's difficult! I think the wheel is good but I can see myself getting fed up of removing the remote jacket each time.

    You can battle people if you know their Wii code can't you? If anyone is up for that then post here.

    That's a shame! I heard that Amazon sold it for £19.99 at some point which means that some people saved a few pounds.

    Why have Nintendo done that? You must know another number to play someone. Seems stupid to me. Playing online should mean you can play anyone, anytime.

    You don't *have* to know another number - that's only to allow you to play friends. You can play on line against any other random players.

    I think the online play is superb. I can usually hold my own without too many problems (unlike when I play Pro Evo Soccer where I just get my ass kicked!)
