It’s been a good year for the Wii U.
In a field with stiff competition this year, Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 is our best Wii U game of 2014.
“There’s no denying that Mario Kart 8 is a solid and enjoyable title, and a great addition to what is one of my personal favourite franchises,” Nicholas said in his review. “The game adds some great new features like anti-gravity and underwater tracks and the ability to perform flips while jumping off a ledge and combined with the various elements I mentioned above, adds a really welcomed level of depth to the game that saw me enjoying the races far more than I have in a previous Mario Kart title.”
Stay tuned throughout this week and next for the rest of our GOTY 2014.
