MSNBC likes the familiarity of "Mario Kart Wii," the new game from Nintendo.
Added to the road mix of Mario stunts is a motorcycle that pops wheelies.
The biggest improvement in the game doesn't isn't a part of the game itself, but more about who you can play it with--anyone online.
"The online aspect of the game actually outshines the single player mode. Not only does it allow for up to 12 people to race at once, it lessens the “rubberband” effect (the clumping together of karts by the game’s artificial intelligence) that the series has been faulted for in the past," writes Ken Smith, the MSNBC contributor.
Gamespot has also reviewed the game and gave it an 8.5. It said: " Mario Kart Wii is still very much the game that you have come to love over the years."
