    Much of this will seem like a given to Switch owners, but it's still completely relevant in terms of what validates picking up this version of Mario Kart 8. It's not only the "complete" and current experience, but one transformed by its hardware. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the definitive version as we're likely to know it from now on, and thanks to the nature of the Switch, it's worth every penny.

    The definitive version of one of the greatest multiplayer games ever, with a vast array of courses, characters, and the best Battle mode since the SNES days.

    The definitive edition of the world's greatest arcade racer. Switch has its second essential game. [June 2017, p.64]

    It seems that Nintendo Switch was made for a game like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Racing is fun and multiplayer (8 local/12 online) is unbeatable. Nevertheless, the only improvements from the Wii U game are six new characters, new items and some battle modes, and that is not enough.

    For a port of an older Wii U title, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe feels like a brand new game that everyone can enjoy. Whether this is your first Mario Kart or your eighth, there's enough here to satisfy your thirst for racing.

    The greatest game in the Mario Kart series is back, now under the name of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in a Nintendo Switch version that improves the original on several levels. If its large amount of content was not enough, the return of the battle mode as it was before and all the visual improvements bring the game up to today's standards.

    Funny racing game featuring the most popular tracks from all older sequels and versions. Don’t waste your time with reality – shoot the enemy with the turtle shell! [Issue#275]

    This is the best Mario Kart game to date! Superb courses, nice characters and super smooth game play with a stable 60 fps.
    Also for time-trial fanatics there is enough to do with a Nintendo ghost to beat in every level and courses that let ypu master them in every detail, This is a no-brain er for every Nintendo Switch owner.

Bringing back the classic Battle Mode and fan-favourite characters Bowser Jr., King Boo, and Dry Bones makes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe an even better game than the Wii U original. The new Renegade Roundup battle mode is a lot of fun, and there are now proper battle courses (the new Lunar Colony is a highlight) rather than race tracks. Plus, Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy from Splatoon fit right in with the rest of the playable characters. With many playable characters and 48 race tracks, as well as a lot of kart customisation options, even if you own Mario Kart 8 on Wii U, every Switch owner should have Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Expand

I didn't think anything would touch Zelda and boy was I wrong. The replay value is insane. The fun in your living room with your friends is priceless. The controls are perfect. The 60 fps and 1080p graphics in docked mode is exactly what I was hoping for. What's the only thing I would want changed? I guess just to turn off auto-steering by default. Expand

In my opinion this game isn't worth it for those who've already got it on Wii U, the game is fun to play. However, 60 bucks is a bit too high for this game, it should've been the same price as 1-2 Switch. Expand
