multiplayer
by kikkittykiker on 2019/12/07 08:52
lol the biggest reason this was so hyped was because so many people wanted to race each other
Awful
by Ryan Cooper26 on 2019/12/07 07:33
Couldn’t even finish a few races before I was done with with it. Bring on Mario kart 9 on the switch please wow this was awful. Build vertically? Who the heck designed that lol terrible. Worst game game I’ve ever played 🏁
Very good

Mixed feelings.
by Kellymusic on 2019/12/07 06:48
So I’ve been addicted to this game since it’s came out but the past couple of weeks not so much. With the amount of times it lags and cancels you out the app it’s super frustrating. I was just playing one of the new races and finished with almost 16,000 points and then it kick me off the app and it never applied, even though I finished it . It crashes quite frequently, I’m constantly trying to get 5 stars but it’s hard when you can’t always have the top characters so you’re just stuck with unfinished races. It’s hard to get characters without rubies or paying for rather the pass or the rubies . It’s crashed and lagged so much I don’t even think it’s worth it anymore especially since there isn’t even multiplayer yet. I played this game religiously, especially always trying to get 1st in tiers which I succeeded with most but it’s just gone down hill with all the bugs and just a lot . Hopefully it will be fixed eventually so no one else has to deal with this further.
Great potential for a classic at an overpriced offer
by Spynniker on 2019/12/07 05:43
This is good I cannot denied that but it has several problems that I'm sure Nintendo already knows: - Overpriced items to purchase, and they can say that no one is force to buy anything at their prices but here is where the game start losing its magic because without some special items you will be no one in the game at all other will win over easily - Auwful steering controls, the kart constantly moves to the opposite direction where I'm supposed to pressing in the screen, I have lost a lot of times because of this - You won't be compared with other players with your same skills and level, I have saw that the game in its random logic when creates the group of 20 to the week tournament puts players with higher level with other in lower level so here there is not option for this people to win something if they are not compare with other in the same level (i.e. A level 40 playing against a level 25, there's no opportunity for the lower level to win against this condition) - The pipe prices, for those who have the Golden Pass the chance to win something special from the are real low, in my case I have spend 60 tries and haven't received nothing useful from the pipe so this is very frustrating to see how you earn the overpriced rubies and they're useless in the pipe Probably will continue playing but as frequently as the beginning of this game because of all problems commented above.

Game cheats, not fun
by Hunting Humans on 2019/12/07 03:45
Don’t be in first place the whole race, the game will stop you before you cross the finish. Cheap garbage. I can’t tell you how many times this game hits me with a blue shell when I’m about to cross the finish in first place. Nearly every time I play. Just in the last hour it has happened three times in a row. Like clockwork, I tell my friend “watch this...last lap and finish line is in sight, bet you I get hit with”...and suddenly there’s the alert for incoming blue shell!! 🤣 Also, there are times when I’m about to win and my car hits an invisible barrier. The last time was while going over a boost pad! So, instead of going faster, the game made me slow to crawl. Nothing hit me, just suddenly slowed and then watched the other racers pass me by at the finish, install went from 1st to 4th place. That’s pathetic programming, and it’s clearly intentional. I get it, nintendo really wants me to spend money. So, they program the game to tease you, let you ALMOST win, maybe if I just used a power up, or had a slightly better kart...oh wait, I can pay real money for those. Nice try Nintendo. Deleted this trash.
Fun at First, but gets very boring
by Switch Master 23 on 2019/12/07 02:43
Don’t get me wrong, the game is very, very addicting at first, but after playing tour after tour, it gets extremely repetitive. Until multiplayer is added, I would wait to play.

by cackmeatsammich on 2019/12/07 02:31
The only reason for the four stars is that I feel the game is missing a pure multiplayer mode.

by lokabrbbavfm on 2019/12/07 01:57
This game is one of the best games I’ve ever played but for some reason my Nintendo account won’t connect
Please fix.
by Jasonvalle666 on 2019/12/07 01:11
Nobody likes paying for things in a game like this unless it’s COSMETIC. It’s fun enough for me to want to play but the game crashes whenever I get 1st place, which is every time because I’m pretty sure you don’t actually get to play with other people around the world. Again. FUN, but not good enough. I’m gonna go play a real Mario Kart game now.
👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
by ASHWCT on 2019/12/07 00:51
This game used to be fine, but every time I play on the app now it lags like crazy and it completely shuts down in the middle of a race.

Do Not Like It
by lillian1309 on 2019/12/06 21:45
I always look for fun and enjoyable games to play. I saw this one on a home page at the App Store and some friends had it so I got it. I had watched the videos on the app’s page. It seemed like so much fun! When I opened the app every single time (I had had it for about two weeks) it would give me a miscommunication notice. I deleted it. It was NOT worth getting because it never worked! I wish I could have tried it . I wish they would just fix the error. Also my phone always has connection. I was really disappointed in this app.
Game started out great
by ChelPapp on 2019/12/06 21:43
But... now the ruby situation really makes it hard to want to keep playing. I work hard for a tiny amount, only to get horrible prizes, not even a slight chance for anything mid tier it seems anymore. All of the challenges and almost all of the avatars are the same each time you achieve it so it’s hard to even look forward to anything. When the game first came out, there was always a chance I could get a decent prize here and there, but now all I got are repeats over and over again these last 3 tours. Still love the game, just wish there was more to look forward to.
Requires a Nintendo account

I guess you need a Nintendo account to play this game.

Hi I love this game but I do have a complaint...the game ALLWAYS crashes! So if the creator could fix that then I prob.would play the game
Nice... Finaly this old extra game on the phone...
by Nintendo 😁 on 2019/12/06 20:10
Only little more coins, rubyes and gifts, without gold pass !
What am I paying for again ?!
by lola_bunnysxy on 2019/12/06 19:03
I love the game don’t get me wrong but what am I paying $4.99 for again ? I feel like the people who actually pay for the game should be able to do more in game. There really should be more in game advantages besides getting better karts faster. If I’m a paying customer I should be able to win more as well as earn more prizes. The game store itself is way too pricey I feel that everything should be a few gems less as well as coins.

It’s Mario Kart… but…
by ChronosTimeMage on 2019/12/06 16:48
Unless you are constantly playing and saving for better karts/characters, you’ll soon hit a road block in which case the game will shove micro transactions in your face (couple dollars here and there and you’ll eventually pay for a full game with only around half the content unlocked… and even then you will continue to grind for better stats)
Fun...but...
by xosaara137ox on 2019/12/06 15:48
Cons: -Pay to win -“Premium” currency too expensive -25$ for 10 pulls on the pipe -Need 70-100 pulls to get new high ends -75$ to get 1 high end with coin rush -Only able to earn rubies for 10 pulls/week -Without gold pass you’ll be saving for months -Tier 20 bottleneck makes earning rubies even harder than it is already set up, monster scores that only paying players can beat and no way to move down in tiers -Not enough races. Before the first week of a tour is over I have already finished all challenges, races, and unlocked all gifts...then twiddle my thumbs for another 10 days waiting for something new -Waiting for new tours to unlock every day is awful -Ranked leaderboards require high ends to compete -Older devices constantly crash and lose progress -Caps on XP/Coins per day are too low. After 5-8 races I am done playing for the day, too focused on casual play while looking to get in your wallet. -Caps on Player Level is by course, so when there’s only 1 new course with 4-5 variants, there’s about 50 races I can’t even see progress on. Should reset per tour. -Minimal benefits for gold pass, at 5$/month there should be more challenges, benefits, and ways to earn to make the cost worthwhile. -Too many character variants watering down the pool. I have pink gold peach, peachette, peach, vacation peach...and most are at level 1 with only one ticket per 2 weeks to level high ends. Pros: -It’s fun Make it less of a gatcha game and add more content, ASAP.
Crashes
by SaraSIays on 2019/12/06 15:08
It’s a lot of fun, but crashes every 3rd race on iOS12, either at the very start of a race when the list of drivers closes, or at the very end when the leaderboard comes up. Need to constantly force close the app to avoid losing progress.
Trash
by BlessedPrince on 2019/12/06 14:40
Don’t even bother downloading unless you’re ready to invest some money. It’s ridiculous.
Perfect for Mario Kart beginners, disappointing to veterans
by Nayvul Joos on 2019/12/06 14:03
I’ve played Mario Kart for just under a decade and can tell you that this is disappointing for me. There are only two laps per map and the constant begging of in app purchases are bothersome. Aside from that, the game is wonderful and I highly recommend to people who are not true gamers.
Needs Online Multiplayer
by WillJourneyy on 2019/12/06 13:29
Love the game- it needs multiplayer for me to fully invest time & money into it. Excited for that potential update to come.
Awesome
by random name 2576 on 2019/12/06 13:07
This has easily become my favorite game in the short time since it came out, I am a Mario kart pro any version any system give me the controller and I’ll get first GUARANTEED, but recently those have become too easy because the CPUs were way to predictable/consistent however in this version I’m racing people all over the globe, I still ALWAYS get first but it’s a nice challenge with the points. The no pause feature is annoying but I still totally love this game. I’ve been waiting for this game since its ORIGINAL scheduled date back in March and then during summer vacation and it was worth it - an young but retro pro
Amazing game

Mario Mart, not Mario Kart
by Ryan Webb on 2019/12/06 07:12
This game only resembles Mario Kart but is far from it. Dumbed down controls and make the game about getting points and buying in game loot box crap and give it a Star Wars Battlefront style leveling system. If you can get 1st in points without actually getting in first place the game is no longer about skill and track times but getting combo points that are magnified by your paid for loot, and add a paywall that limits what you can actually play and put a glass ceiling on your game progression for $5 a month which is more then what you pay for Nintendo Switch online. Sounds fair right?
Still no fix on the crashing issue
by RyanLundgren on 2019/12/06 06:19
You lose your progress if the app crashes for what I see is for no reason. iOS fully up to date, great WiFi speeds, full battery, over 10GB of extra space on my phone, and all apps closed so this can’t be because of something I’m doing. Auto loss if the app crashes. No opportunity to join back in the game and sometimes this happens before you even start a race, sometimes you’ve just gone over the finish line. I’ve never got last place but I’m sure my statistics have over 100 just because of how often this happens. This is Nintendo, I don’t know how kinks like this still haven’t been worked out. I’ve even paid for a gold pass but it happens just as often so I won’t be participating in the future passes until this issue is resolved. It’s getting worse! It’s now gotten so bad that I can’t even race at all, once I hit the finish line the app crashes. Very upset that I don’t get to use an app I spent money on. Worst 4.8🌟 game with all of the issues and the delayed online functionality.
Terrible
by mini21415 on 2019/12/06 05:46
It lags when you get in first than makes people just skip in front of you and game freezes when your in a race
The game is great but...
by God_Icky🤮 on 2019/12/06 05:18
I think the game would be better if you guys would have the multiplayer version come faster because I’ve been wanting to race my friends and when I saw that the multiplayer wasn’t on there I was kind of bummed out :(

No horizontal screen?
by WyattMPhoebe on 2019/12/06 04:21
How could you possibly develop this game and not have an option for a horizontal screen? That’s so outrageously incompetent. How could you have ignored something that is clearly so intuitive. The developers are the clearest example of the pure essence of incompetence that I have ever witnessed.

MKT item suggestions
by sphanis on 2019/12/06 03:58
Amazing game! I just want to make some suggestions for new and returning items. Maybe add things like fake item box, feather and boo. Also, include pirhana plant. POW block would also be nice along with thunder cloud. I’m thinking also a super bell, which would have the user dash forward just like a mushroom, and causes the opponents to spin out when you hit them. Also, a goomba that walks around the track. Then maybe a poison mushroom that shrinks opponents. Also, a penguin suit. I don’t know what it would do though. Also, bring Back the black shell. That’s all!
Freaking pipes

This is a review. I’m sorry
by CoffeePlease224 on 2019/12/05 23:51
If you have any sense in that mushroom and banana infested plumber head, by loving god of all things Mario and Karty, don’t download this frickin’ game. I don’t care if Toad begged his diaper off for you to play, it’s broken. I’ve had it for a week, and it’s already frozen 72 times. The week I did have and play it the bots were stopping in the middle of a race, and it kicked me out a multitude of times. Please heed my warnings; this game is better on a Switch. Even a WII U by god. Just not a phone. Thanks Nintendo

If you want any of the good characters then prepare to pay a pretty penny. It’s next to impossible to get the limited edition characters from the pipes.
5 stars minus 3= needs improvement
by August West 221 on 2019/12/05 15:14
This is 5 star FUN! However the game consistently crashes every few races. I would consider purchasing add ons and supporting the developers efforts if I felt this was solid.
It’s getting too hard
by Mirah22690111 on 2019/12/05 15:12
I used to love this game. But now with all the updates gets getting really hard and is pissing off me and my friends. There’s too many characters to keep up with and what ur adding them for is pointless. It’s just a repeat of the same character. Same with the maps. Make new of the maps and the challenges a bit easier. The teir points is horrible and needs to go down a lot more 36,000 is just way too much.

Great Racing Game
by Mr.Univerze on 2019/12/05 09:26

This game is pay to win
by Coco the great3016372 on 2019/12/05 06:14
I loved the game at first but I realized that this game is based on points, not skill. You have to buy gems to get the cars and characters you need to win and the other racers aren’t even real people. This game is just another way for Nintendo to make truckloads of money. I loved the idea of the game and I was really looking forward to it until I realized what it really is.
Add Controller support
by E&J+L on 2019/12/05 05:59
Bring a more console like experience. Game feels too much like an annoying mobile game. Companies like game loft try to bring console gaming to mobile and even apple’s arcade is not bad.
Good until last update
by Goldy Goldy on 2019/12/05 05:47
Crashes repeatedly since the new tour was added in latest update. The app won’t stay open long enough to play even one race. It was a fun game until today. Now it’s not a game.

Each new tour is full of glitches
by someone who tries to play on 2019/12/05 05:12
Every two weeks the game requires an update for a new tour and the first 2-3 days it boots you out midway through a race. The first time wasn't that big of a deal but it's becoming a consistent habit of the game.
I love the game but

Crashing
by Cutest- on 2019/12/05 05:08
I love this game, I really do. However, there is one bad bit. I have no idea what I am going to get from day to day. Sometimes I go in and play the game just fine, sometimes the game glitches like crazy, and sometimes it just crashes. It will crash in the beginning, OR it will let you start a race and then crash in the middle of the race. Super frustrating.
nostalgia effect :~)
by rosaliebryson on 2019/12/05 04:52
i love this game. i don’t usually write reviews but i HAD TO for this. despite its flaws, the sometimes frustrating controls and whatever, it’s still an awesome game. the tracks look just like the mario kart tracks we know and love &new additions and challenges :) it gives me total nostalgia, and the game is so fun once you get used to it.

by lionesslulu03 on 2019/12/05 04:12
Ever since Mario Kart came out, I’ve been overly addicted. Today it crashed, it’s just a black screen... I’m really disappointed and frustrated that I can’t play my favorite game. Please fix it😣
Gold pass
by Ya mommaz mama on 2019/12/05 03:22
I love the app but but I wish u can have the gold pass for free 😕. Wand it’s not fair that TWO week trial cost $4! TWO! Why two? Make it longer for 99 cents please please please! And the gold pass too!
Game crashes
by Ele5782 on 2019/12/05 03:15
Every time when the game begins it always says MARIO kart has crashed. And you have to start the app again. This needs to be fixed like NOW it is very frustrating and annoying
Um not really....
by qhehdhhxh on 2019/12/05 02:43
So when I first got this game it was fun but it was only the practice one.When I was done the thing said it needed to download so I waited and waited but it still took forever! And I thought maybe it’s my phone. Then I tried it the next day and after that and it still not working so maybe can you guys fix that.(I don’t get it, it works for other people)

Hey guys your game crashed so can you fix it?
Fun game but
by Patlann on 2019/12/05 02:05
I love the game however I wish their were more races because after a a few days of playing you have to wait for them to open. I also don't like how when you spend 45 gems on the pipe you get multiple items of the same thing and you only get one good item. Its hard to earn gems and I don't see that being fair way to earn items. I also don't like that the same items keep getting added to the shop and they never add plays or karts that I don't have.

Add multiplayer
Fun but limiting
by Anymouse58 on 2019/12/05 00:38
Why do you limit the number of coins and exp points we can earn each day. I bought the gold pass, it should include more coins & exp points each day. Fun game but stop being cheap with the good karts, drivers, coins & exp points.
Can be frustrating, but good overall.
by SunsetSylveon on 2019/12/05 00:15
Occasionally you’ll find yourself being SO CLOSE to the score you need and not getting it but you probably would if you just had a different character, vehicle, or glider. That can be really frustrating but overall, a LOT of work was clearly put into this game. It’s pretty fun :)

This game is amazing I love it just wish that some things could be free
Good mobile adaption

Pleas allow us to choose to move the drift button to a side instead of directly in the middle where it interferes with steering!
No Nintendo account
by aallen324 on 2019/12/04 22:49
Makes you set up a Nintendo account which is a nightmare and then the verification email won’t even send so I can’t play. I’ll just delete and move on.
Love the game! But...
by AlexandraReid on 2019/10/22 08:39
As much as I’m fully addicted to this game right now, I can’t help but feel like there’s more to be changed. I guess it’s not something that will get changed but the pipe firing. It frustrates me bc rubies aren’t all that easy to get (not to mention if you wanted to just buy some they’re crazy overpriced). And it’s 5 rubies per shot. But the problem I have is the prizes aren’t good? Like yeah you get a chance to win a special one but I’d say 9/10 I don’t get anything special. It might give me like 1 level ticket to a certain item but it’s usually something I don’t use/isn’t useful for any of the races in the tour. I just think your chances should be increased to get special characters/karts/gliders. ESPECIALLY when you need some of these characters to actually get all 5 stars on a race. It makes it virtually impossible to complete every race with 5 stars. I feel like Nintendo went straight for the money on this one. Most in-app purchases for apps of a similar caliber are way more affordable. If the rubies were more affordable, you’d actually make more money because more people would be inclined to buy them. And if you’re like me, you’ll spend $5 a bunch of times and end up giving way more money to the company than necessary. I just hate to waste rubies on a maybe. I guess that’s the gamble though. This was far too long anyways, but I just felt the need to voice my opinion on it.
I love this game but...
by Smoshgamesisawesome on 2019/11/03 04:31
Hello there, i downloaded this game when it first came out and found that it was an amazing game, however I have a few points for the developers. The first point is I know that as a company you need to make money but charging 2 bucks for 3 rubies it kind of ridiculous especially because we would be paying 5 a month for gold pass for your game. I would recommend that you could have an option to use your coins that you earned to purchase a few rubies and the more coins you have the more rubies you can purchase. My second point is that you need to come out with a online multiplayer so that everyone can play with there friends! I would love to be able to challenge my friends and see who can do the best instead of playing strangers all of the time, it needs to come soon instead of just “inbound”. I also would recommend that you add a few more maps for the weekly challenge because I know most of me and my friends outplay them in a day and it just leaves us to replay each map all week until the new ones are realized. I also think you should make it phone orientation directed, so that you can turn your phone side ways and race or have it vertical. Other than these few points of improvement this game is great, I love the tube aspect of how you receive your prizes and I just have always loved Mario cart.

by drew_818 on 2019/09/26 23:53
When I first saw that nintendo was releasing Mario kart on mobile is the best news I’ve heard so far as in mobile games couldn’t get any better. Don’t get me wrong the gameplay of the game is really fun the best experience also with the main menu and the shop all those features are really nice for. Than when I come to find out I have to upgrade the karts and the gliders and characters It’s alright I don’t have a problem with it. On what I do is that it would be better if we where allowed to get a little more coins than we do same thing with the gems just feels like I’m not getting enough for the items in the shop. Another thing is I wish there weren’t that many limits to stuff and wish we could get a little more rewards in the game like items to upgrade and more coins, same with the gems. Just hope these things would happen in later updates oh and another thing that would make the game a little better don’t end up making the game be a “pay to win game” that would make the experience even better. Hopefully more characters are added in the game and karts, gliders, maps and the multiplayer hope it’s like the same experience like the Nintendo switch but besides that great game lots of fun something really new.!!!
exciting..but
by ssmvx on 2019/09/25 19:31
getting mario kart for mobile was a huge deal for me, as this was a game i played daily as a child. however, after playing it for a little bit i have found some things that i’m not very fond of. the first being the experience needed to level up your carts being limited on a daily basis. that disappointed me as i feel like i can’t level up and get better as quickly as i would like. also, the “gold pass” is another issue i had with the game. i wouldn’t of minded paying a one time fee, but $5 MONTHLY is a bit much for a game. i pay that amount for apple music, apple arcade, etc. another tiny issue i have are the controls, i feel like that could’ve been planned out better. i was expecting the game to be played sideways, but it’s played vertical which i found odd, but not a huge deal. finally, the multiplayer aspect of the game annoyed me. i thought multiplayer would’ve been available when i downloaded the game, but after downloading and doing some research i found out it won’t be available until saturday. in my opinion, i wouldn’t of released the game until saturday then. as i was looking forward to using that feature and now i have to wait longer to use it. i think everybody is overhyping this a bit too much, and while i’m glad nintendo brought mario kart to mobile, i just think there are some aspects of the game that aren’t great which really brings the gameplay experience down. i hope future updates will improve the quality of the game.
Decent 1st Version, Definitely Still Needs Work
by GameTommy on 2019/10/06 04:51
The initial released version of the game is decent, but there are several issues that make the game only 3 or 4 out of 5 stars. First, there is no way to allow you to decide if you want to steer regularly or to turn by drifting other than choosing Settings WHILE THE RACE IS STILL GOING and change the setting for manual steering and hope nothing happens while you do that. Second, when making very small changes in direction to straighten myself out I’ve frequently accidentally used items. Both of these issues could be resolved by changing the touch controls. I’d suggest having holding your finger on the screen should allow regular turning while a tap near the kart will allow drifting, and also having a tap away from the kart to use items. A third (minor) issue is not being able to slow down. I’ve had several cases where a Blue Shell is closing in when I’m barely in 1st and my only option to get in 2nd is to do a hard turn into a wall so the other kart gets hit instead. Good things about the game is the very low cellular data usage when no Wi-Fi is available, the ability to auto use current items when you go through an item box so you get new items, and the great courses. I look forward to seeing the issues fixed so there will be nothing bad holding the game back.
A couple changes could really improve game play
by Jmo666 on 2019/09/26 23:06
From start up app is completely user friendly, easy to navigate as well as get started even if you don’t have a Nintendo profile. Once in the game it looks amazing, all the great memories of childhood come flooding back and you are reunited with your inner child. My only complaint is game play, as it is streamless and easy to use I feel it is lacking in both immersion as well as accuracy. Immersion, I feel playing the game in wide screen and giving the player a true left and right as well as throttle and break controls, or keep auto throttle and move weapon usage and drift on buttons, could even set it up for double tap in the direction of the turn to initiated drift or put turning on joystick but swiping left and right. Swiping left and right seems to have the vehicle constantly needing a direction input due to a lack of getting back on center too slowly or something of that nature. Game play, I feel if the above is changed it will completely improve game play and bring competitiveness forefront as well as the want to continue to play and advance through the game. Just my two pennies. Those are the only reasons I give the game 4 out of 5. Everything else in the game is amazing but those areas are lacking, playing on wide screen and a change to driving controls would be highly encouraged.
Rant
by 674239 on 2019/10/19 21:23
Game doesn’t want you to win and even if you get first place, the game will base you off of your performance. This game will do anything in its power to help make the “other real players” win. Why quote on quote? Well because in the tour mode you are not actually playing with real player, they are just computer players generated with real player names and load outs. As I was playing this game I noticed something that was very annoying, I would click the button that allows me to view behind me and when I would let go, it would change my controls from Manuel drift to standard driving. Also, in a race when I was right next to a computer player, I was focused in on trying to get ahead of this computer BUT the computer player just TELEPORTS? Ahead of me? Haha wow if that’s how this game is going to be, I am better of playing a Mario kart game that is actually fair. Two more things, the prices and the gold pass. The prices to purchase rubies are just wow. You mean to tell me that I have to pay two dollars for 3 rubies, not even enough for a ONE SHOT PIPE. Now the Gold pass. Seriously? I have to pay 5 dollars A MONTH for: 200cc and bonus awards and display badges? And that’s basically it, 200 cc which will probably have the computer players act impossible to beat with the way they are programmed unless you have the top load out for the race, the bonus awards aren’t too bad but golden display badges? Really? They don’t even look that good.
Fun and addicting, but some sketchy moves by Nintendo
by Masuel9 on 2019/09/27 14:16
Few things I found wrong here after playing for awhile. The number of different maps is limited, as each cup just makes a random combination choosing from a selection of maybe 10-12 of them. Secondly, just the option to pay for a “gold pass” (5$ monthly) is annoying to me. I hate in game subscriptions that just make you better than other players, it takes the fun out of the grind. Plus, limiting the amount you can level up riders, carts, and gliders in one day makes it seem like a clear money grab as the game forces you to pay for extra coins, gems, gold pass, etc. lastly, the obvious attempt at deceiving the players making it seem like they’re playing online when in reality it’s bots with creative names is a bit sketchy. I’ve seen tons of reviewers on the App Store alone actually believing that they are playing against real players when they enter a cup. This is a big deal because once you find out everything is just computer AI, it gets repetitive and boring fast. I really enjoy the way they condensed the game-play to fit into the quick style of phone games, I appreciate the grind aspect even if it seems to be cornering me into paying, and I hope the multiplayer that comes out on Saturday can redeem the other poor qualities of Mario Kart Tour. For now though, 3/5 is about the most you can give it.
New York Minute Map Rant
by Kkkkkkaaaaaddddeee on 2019/10/01 06:09
The game is very fun, however I do find coin grinding to be a bit repetitive, only earning 50 gold per match. Also, New York is probably my least favorite map, making it very difficult for me to reach 5 stars, even though I play 150 cc every race or event I do. I don't have a driver that has more than 1 items slot,(there being only 4, all of which are above common[diddy kong, Bowser, Pauline, Mario with a suit])Before, I had a problem on this map in The Bowser cup, in which I grinded from level 4 to 12 on that map alone, taking me 3 days to eventually have rng side in my favor(I didn’t have the kart for x2-3 points, so being first on lap1 and 2, and reaching 1800 bonus points from random stuff to reach the 4,600 points I needed.) Overall, I am in a situation where 5 grand stars are half based on rng, hoping I get items instead of Mushrooms, and not getting hit AT ALL by other racers. I’ve got the drifting down, holding green shells and bananas for extra protection against red shells, and riding into other racers if they are riding me. Now its diddy kong cup, near situation except the goal is 5300 instead of 4600. And the characters this time are: Pauline, diddy kong, donkey kong, and mario with a suit. I have the highest tier cart for the level(x2 points) and a middle tier glider. However, I’m stuck with toad to chug through the race.
Amazing initial release
by Plexiuss on 2019/09/27 22:37
I have very high hopes for the game; though as I’ve seen the general amount of complaints and see them being mostly unfair. Many people complain about it playing vertical- but it’s honestly more accessible and something you can just quickly play with it being vertical- though it would be nice to see an option to flip your screen before the race, that’s no reason to completely disregard the game. Gameplay can be somewhat simplistic, but it’s fun and accessible to everyone: hardcore Mario kart fans and casual players alike, WHILE maintaining a competitive aspect and holding a skill gap as well. I’m looking forward to seeing multiplayer being released very soon, as in the menu there’s a button labeled “multiplayer” that says it’ll be added soon. Overall, this game is definitely worth your download, especially for a free app on your phone. Even though there’s a gold pass (which includes a two week free trial and is 5$/month) it doesn’t offer anything that would consider it pay2win, but supports Nintendo and also gives the player small benefits. Don’t go in expecting something like Mario kart from the switch translated straight to your phone, but it really feels at its core like a Mario kart game.
MARIO CART TOUR
by KBM SORA on 2019/09/26 16:33
This game is really fun their only a few things that need to be looked at. The first thing is this game crashes some time u expect stuff like that because it’s new and every one is trying to play so when that’s fixed that would help so we wouldn’t have to start over a race. My secound thing is the controls could be way better if they put two arrows so u can steer theirs a lot of understeer when u play this game u drift way to much or don’t turn right on sharp corners that would honestly make this game way better and more fun to race with this controls. My third thing is their are micro trans actions so if u want the best characters u do have to buy the gold pass to me it does make a huge difference it gives u things free to play players won’t have or get because it’s exclusive to the gold pass for $5.99 I mean I know their trying to get money but this isn’t the way to get it. The point of games it to earn ur stuff not buy ur way to it so if u we’re planning to get platinum Mario u can’t unless u get the gold pass sorry guys. Their also is an online mode coming in future updates I hope it’s real player real time. I want to be able to send my friends invites so we can play together in our own lobby we create not with otheir people make it 2 separate online modes pvp and friend pvp. That’s all
Has the potential to be waaaaay better
by ShawnaeN on 2019/09/25 11:41
I understand Nintendo wanted to go for the whole “play with one hand” type of thing but the game could be sooooo much better. For one I like the Wii version of mario kart a thousand times better...if its possible to create a controller for the wii on regular smart phones so that I can still play my Wii that would be nice so keep that into consideration. Anothee thing WHY IS THERE NO WIRELESS MULTIPLAYER!???!!!! I want to compete against my friends not against the computer and against some random players, thats what made mario kart, mario kart. You could play by yourself or compete against friends when needed. In reality I was being nice by giving it three stars, its not a bad game but it really could be better, the app really wont last long if you dont get the multiplayer option and then can the controls not be soooo simple because a landscape option for the phone would be ideal so that we can be in control of our speeds and even have a mobile device tilting option to steer because right now everything feels like its been figured out for us and takes away the players control over the game which is not the authetic mario kart because we chose our speed and we chose how to steer and we chose how to use items and this mobile app takes all of that away. Please please please please do better because we all know that you can.
Great game, but could be improved
by Vid lab customer on 2019/10/09 19:36
I enjoy the game greatly, it’s a fun way to kill time and the graphics are awesome to see on an iPhone and not on a Switch or Wii-U. The concept is fair and I enjoy the gameplay. However, there are some thing that should be changed in my opinion. For example, there is a daily limit on how much you can upgrade your items. And another one I would like to stress is that as you progress, each level gets increasingly difficult to rack up points, thus obtain more stars to unlock more cups. To me, that just doesn’t make sense. The average points received on a good game (considering you got 1st place, drifted, jump boosts, fought your way to 1st, etc.) you would probably get around 4 to maybe 6 thousand points. But in the later cups, 6 thousand points barely gets you three stars, while in the before cups, you’re easily getting five stars. I just don’t see how it’s possible to get ten thousand points in a single 2-lap race, when getting points is capped daily. So each item, and each character can’t be leveled to the full potential because of the max variety, and the daily caps. If these things were to be fixed or tweaked somehow, I would easily give this a five star rating. This is such a good, unique mobile game but these issues are just roadblocks for me and whoever else plays the game.
READ THIS!!!!!!!!!
by Natałie:) on 2019/10/12 14:58
I’ve always loved MARIO cart so I want to make a few suggestions for this game. First you should add more of the old tracks like the raid now one railroad one the like snow one the penguin one all those good ones along with new ones as well. Also you should add that game on the wii where you have a team and you try to pop as many balloons as possible. Also you should add more games that you can play with friends as well. All I’m saying is if you add all the stuff you could possibly add to this game it will be literally the perfect game ever. Hopefully you read this and hopefully my suggestions were helpful! I feel that stuff you add to the app you should keep on it bc making the old tours go away is kinda stupid to me bc now you can’t do those races again and i like all the courses and I think you should just keep them on there and add things to it. I think you should make a button for the different tours so you don’t have to take them off the game. I also want to say if you were to make a game that was so much fun on the wii you should make it better than the old one not worse and I feel it’s not as good as the wii one. You should also add the motorcycles like the wii
Needs improvement
by heyitzgenevieve on 2019/09/26 01:14
This game was super hyped up when it first got announced and I was excited to play it when it was originally supposed to come out over the summer. For a game that got delayed by several months, it definitely still has some issues and could use improvement. First of all, the controls are pretty horrible. In drift mode, you are practically forced to drift through the entire race because whenever you’re tapping on the screen you start to drift, which means you can’t go straight unless you’re not tapping the screen, making it extremely hard to control. On the other hand, in regular mode you can hardly make it around turns. I was excited to try out the gyro controls, only to find out that they’re even worse than the manual controls. The gyro mode is SUPER delayed and you have to turn your phone really far to get it to even move. The game as a whole is just really slow, especially when racing, which takes away the exhilarating factor of a racing game. I’m hope that they either fix the controls or just add an in-game circle pad altogether. Also, the graphics are great, but I’d assume that’s why the game is so slow, so hopefully that is sped up a bit in the future as well. As for now, the game isn’t all to entertaining considering its speed and serious lack of decent controls, but it’s Mario Kart mobile nonetheless so at least that’s a start.
Game still broken even after bug fixes 🙄
by SHENANIGANS1356 on 2019/10/04 20:17
So I’m pretty annoyed rn. I really like this game and it’s super fun but when there’s a bug in a game that totally takes away the ability to play it, it’s annoying as hell. It’s even more annoying when there’s an update for the game that addresses the bug that your game has and somehow still doesn’t fix it. I have the bug where the game becomes unplayable after I start transitioning to the main game menu after loading up the game. I load it up and it turns black to transition but it just stays black and doesn’t do anything. It sucked when it first happened but I knew they’d eventually fix it so I waited. “Luckily” a day later an update for the game rolls out dealing with the problem so I immediately download it and load up the game again. To my disappointment however, the game still had the exact same bug. It did give me the option to clear my data cache to help restart the game and prevent the game from crashing again but that didn’t work. I even went and deleted the game and redownloaded it as a last resort and still, nothing changed. I’ve tried looking online to see if there’s anything else I could do and I didn’t find anything If any developers are reading this please fix this or let me know if this is possibly having to do with something on my side of things because I’m getting really annoyed. And if anyone else knows how to fix this please let me know
Pretty good game, but..
by Darrel C. on 2019/10/01 23:58
This game was exciting the least being able to play it on your phone. It’s pretty much the same basic game it was from me being a kid, but there’s a couple issues that I find very, VERY annoying. As it comes to skill, I’d say I’m pretty good at drifting but, as it turns out from my experience, attempting to turn in such a way can get the character to stay in a turning animation, which annoys the crap out of me, I look at the top left corner of my screen as my character is STILL stuck in the turning animation, reading the words “7th place”, you kidding me right? I was just in 1st..It only gets worse...I like being in first, you’d probably be too, it’s fun to get a challenge here and there, trying to keep your place in 1st, but..you get bumped behind from the person in 2nd, all of a sudden you’re here waiting for your character to move, and it’s just staying there??? Your suddenly NOT in 1st, no, you’re in 4th, now 6th, and now you’re in last, and wait? That was the last lap too?? Okay... I have to win now, no exceptions...yess I’m in first again, there’s no stopping me this time..finally the last lap, I got this one in the bag.. oh shoot, a shells about to hit me, my character isn’t moving again! It’s literally, taking, its time.. wait what happened?? I was just in first?? No wait..I’m in last, again.. and everyone has already crossed the finish line..
Great Game
by appnyellow on 2019/11/04 01:08
This is one of Nintendo’s best efforts on iOS. It’s a fun game and a lot of love went into making it. As other reviews have mentioned though, it’s hard to escape the feeling that it’s also a money grab. Despite your skill level, it’s impossible to collect 5 stars on the last races in each tour unless you have the right drivers, karts and gliders. Sometimes you’re lucky and you have these, but more often than not you don’t. It’s the same for the weekly ranking. I’ve worked hard to rank #1 among my opponents each week, but I don’t think I could’ve done it without having used the Gold Pass trial to get more rubies (and as luck would have it, the frenzy starting drivers). I’ve reached Tier 13 now, my trial has ended, and it seems the only way to rank #1 this time is to open up my wallet. What’s more, I just used 100 rubies in Halloween Pipe 1 (a roughly $50 value), and didn’t get any frenzy starting drivers, top karts or gliders for this week’s ranking! This is infuriating given the time I’ve invested in this game. Update: Per the weekly ranking, it seems easier to rank #1 without using the Gold Pass or having a frenzy stating driver for every race in the second Halloween Tour. I don’t know if Nintendo was listening, but I’m bumping up my rating in response.
Nintendo did it again!!
by Chi samurai on 2019/10/29 01:22
Booyah!!! I’m a huge Mario kart fan, so I was real excited when this came out! There is so many things, and when the Halloween tour came out, I was soooooo hyped that king Boo, FINALLY CAME!!!! It would be cool that you get to choose what high end thing you get if you pay for 45 rubies, but that’s just my two cents. Speaking of rubies, they are seriously hard to get, can you make it a little easier to get it? Or at least make the pipe draws cost less? It’s ok if you can’t, coins though, you can only get 300 per day and it costs around 12,000 to buy a high end from the shop. Can you make the max coins you can get at least 600?? It takes awhile to farm em, when all the cups are completed it feels like I’m waiting forever, I wish there was something else like a minigame where you are tryin to pop your opponent’s balloon. What about goombas? Mario’s most famous monster?? Or a carrage cart? That would be fun. Overall, AMAZING GAME, I RECOMMEND YOU TO PLAY INSTANTLY!!!!!!!!!! I WISH I COULD RATE HIGHER THEN FIVE 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 💯 STARS FOR THE AMAZING GAME THIS IS!!!!!
Really Nintendo?
by ShadoWarrior29 on 2019/10/13 15:47
Don’t get me wrong with the title. I really enjoy this game. The controls are smooth (after getting used to them), the throwback tracks are super fun to play on, even the characters in the game are great picks (where’s waluigi and luigi tho?!). Anyways those aren’t why i gave this game 4 stars. The only reason i don’t enjoy this game as much is because there is no skill involved whatsoever. You can be great at past mario kart entry’s and beat every single cup on 150cc, mirror, 200cc, it really doesn’t matter the amount of skill you obtain when you start the game. The only thing that will get you a 1st place in this game is really really good RNG. Now, if you don’t know what RNG means, it stands for Random Number Generator. The gist of it is, (depending on what place you are in) you get a random item from the item boxes based on a random number picked by the game. When i said there is no skill involved, that’s not an understatement. The only thing that will win you races in this game is you depending on the games RNG to give you good items, and more importantly, you’re opponents getting bad items. Nintendo, if you are reading this, please in any way, shape, or form, PLEASE make this game not luck based and make it skill based in any way you possibly can. Over and out.
Great, but with a Glaring Problem
by Elkindle20 on 2019/09/25 22:49
I have uninstalled and reinstalled my game more than three times, and while I enjoyed a good while where my problem did not happen and I was racing joyously, the game has been continuously showing me a message at startup that I must update my game to continue playing. There are two buttons below this message. The first one, which says,”How to Update” takes me to what I’d assume would be an FAQ or tutorial if it didn’t display an error message in its place. The second, aptly named,”Check Store”, takes you to - you guessed it - the App Store. Here you would expect to find an update ready to be installed, however the button usually used as the update button only says,”open”, signaling that there is indeed no update available. My friends and colleagues have also confirmed that their copies of the game are working, leading me to continue to wonder why I cannot play a game I have been excited for since it’s announcement. I cannot stress enough how amazing this game is to play and how it is truly amazing to have this caliper of a title on my phone. However, this problem puts a damper on every aspect of the fun of this game, since I cannot even access the title screen. If this problem were to be fixed, my rating would no doubt raise to five stars, but as of right now my opinion and rating of this title sits at a lowly two out of five.
How???

I have been playing Mario kart since the wii (I’m 16) and I’m disappointed in the people playing around me, you can tell they don’t know what Mario kart is and this is there first go around that’s fine if it’s your first Mario kart what’s not fine it the devs making everything so in your face like the start boost timing they tell you what it is in Mario kart wii I had to find that crap out on my own also the drifting control setting is cancer the only way to turn normally is to move you whole phone this is ok in other racing games where you play on landscape but you have to play portrait (as of my understanding) and the game feels so heavy and floaty like a brick trying to figure skate that the one race I tired drift on I got 8th and found my self on multiple occasions having my phone at a 90 degree angle to the side I wanted to turn making follow up turns near impossible and smart steering while being a toggle should be on at all times to make the game even remotely fun or playable. Currently I am first on kuppa cup tier one my name is Jesus if you see me know I have problems with the game but will probably keep playing because despite my problems the game runs great and I am having fun playing. Also I have no idea how the hell I ranked so high on the kuppa cup.
Great game, but wait......
by Gunmanhammer on 2019/09/30 03:40
Great graphics, sounds, and gameplay during races (a couple tweaks to allow turning and drifting without using motion controls would be nice however). As of now this game is a cash grab (I’ll get to this later), with the only “online” feature is to compete for the highest score in the one ranked cup that is opened. In this game the score is calculated based on how well you place, what karts/characters/gliders you use on a level to level basis, tricks, and item use. Other than tricks and placement in races, everything is dependent on your collection of parts and characters which give you various buffs in race, which all happen to be locked behind a loot box system that is the entire progression system. If you want to unlock or level up your characters and parts you use the pipe each costing 5 rubies, which paid for costs $2 for 3 rubies (bonus thrown in for bulk). The other option is the gold pass, this costs $5 a month, giving you a few more awards and the fastest game mode, 200cc. If you do the math that’s triple Nintendo switch online for a year that now has a Mario kart game for free, and the same amount for the huge amount of games that come with Apple’s streaming service. If this game wasn’t pay to win, then it would get 5 stars, otherwise it’s stuck where it is.
Great
by Bonkabeane on 2019/10/21 11:58
I’ve seen a lot of rants on this, one saying it was made for bots to win. But playing the real Mario kart, it wasn’t made so you could win, it was made to be a fair, fun game. This game does just that, it’s fair and fun, it’s not super easy to win but it’s not all that difficult to win either. It really is fair and fun, just like the original game, and I adore that. For this being the first version, it’s great, I’ve had no bugs while playing the game, and it’s been super fun. Of course the characters are bots, but for bots they actually function very well. They aren’t buggy and glitching out which in a lot of games they do, so that’s great! I don’t understand all this controversy I see, it’s as if everyone takes this game like a true world racing tournament. You aren’t the Daytona 500, it’s a game where you have fun. Everyone that says it’s bad because it’s difficult, a good game shouldn’t be super easy, it should be hard and you should learn to play it. Also you can mess around in the settings to adjust it to your play style, which I like. I’m not much of a mobile gamer but this is fun and stays interesting, so I’ll be playing it for a good while. Keep up the good work.
Don’t bother with the 1 star reviews
by Nutella Kid on 2019/09/28 21:01
Okay first of all, this is NOT A PAY TO WIN game. I repeat. This is NOT A PAY TO WIN game. The game DOES NOT ask you for any money nor do you need to spend anything to get further in the game. I actually respect Nintendo for making the micro-transactions pricey to discourage paying your way through the game. Those who are complaining haven’t even played for a couple days so their complaints about controls and how hard the game is shows the little effort they put in. Which isn’t much. So again no money is needed. Not even to make a Nintendo account, which only take like 5 minutes to make. So stop complaining about the small things. Second, the reason I gave it 4 stars instead 5 is because of the unplayable multiplayer. I have hope that the reason they are taking their time is because they are not just trying to make it against friends you add but other people around the world. I do have my worries though that the multiplayer will be asynchronous, meaning against AI but with multiplayer data. If that is so, then I’ll delete the game in a heartbeat because I’m tired of companies putting more thought into the money they want to make instead of making a quality multiplayer experience.
Good, but needs improvement
by MilesTheGuy on 2019/09/27 22:08
I do enjoy this game quite a bit. I’d even go as far as to say this is my favorite mobile game. But there needs to be improvement. For 1, why are the races only two laps long when the tracks are already pretty short? Mario Kart has pretty much always had three lap races and I’m sure adding one extra lap would make this all the bit better. 2, how come we got three baby characters, 3 Mario’s, 2 Peaches, and 2 Bowsers, but not Waluigi, Rosalina, Wario, and (most importantly) LUIGI!? I know the series has already had this problem, and hey, instead of Pink Gold Peach and Baby Rosalina we got the return of Diddy Kong and Pauline making her first appearance in the series. But (instead of Waluigi being cut from Mario Kart 7) Nintendo has never taken out important characters like the ones I’ve mentioned and instead have more clones and Baby Characters. And 3, the one you’ve all been waiting for, the EA like micro transactions. You have to pay $5 per month for a membership. That’s more than a Nintendo Switch membership! However, this game is still kind of fun. The controls feel tight, the tracks are fun, and the game looks surprisingly good for mobile. It just had to be bogged down by the bad stuff. Overall, I like this game, it just needs improvements to make it better.
Mario Kart’s always fun, but this one’s the worst.
by Silicon FX on 2019/09/30 23:31
Why are all of Nintendo’s mobile games post-Super Mario Run so painful to play? You just want to play the game and have fun, but the game annoys you into wasting your money on what’s ultimately a garbage product. You just want to play as Mario, but you have to do this dumb gambling garbage that’s OUTLAWED IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES. Gee, I wonder why? You look at other games on the market and think “Sheesh, this game is not player friendly”, then you look at this game and wish you were playing something else instead. It’s the little things about this game that annoy me most, such as the way the music was sped up—done in such a way to which the pitch increases along with the speed, the horrendously high scores you need to get in order to get 5 stars in what’s ultimately a luck-based match, etc on top of etc. Online, TRUE online is the one thing that could’ve saved this game, and it’s coming, but why isn’t it just out now? Nintendo’s image isn’t looking too good. They were the good guys, the wholesome company. Now, the opposite is true. From the way they handled joycon drifting, to their mobile endeavors, this just isn’t right. It’s not the Nintendo I grew up with. This is EA levels of shady and detestable. If someone from Nintendo actual reads this message, GET SOME HELP. If any consumers are reading this, don’t waste your valuable time on this game. Play a legitimate Mario Kart, not this cheap knockoff.
Great game not executed well
by OhGab on 2019/11/09 00:42
I play this game EVERYDAY literally the only game that was respectable and honorable enough to be on my tablet and I'm dissapointed 😫. Nintendo had A GREAT MONEY Making game but idk if it's really making money lol why do I have to pay 2$ for 3 rubies #NotGoneHappen also after playing on the two week trial I was this close 👌🏽 to buying it until it said every month #NotGoneHappenAgain and I've never purchased ANYTHING in a game EVER... I say that to say this the prices are crackish and I'm sad because I love playing at 200cc!!! But playing at 200cc and having to go back to 150cc suuuuuuucks 😩 I was this close 👌🏽 to un-installing this game BUT I'm willing to give Nintendo a chance. I grew up on Mario Karts so I have high expectations for the 2019 version. Please put some respect on this game, give us an option to be able to play at 200cc when we reach a certain player level or have to purchase it with the rubies it takes a miracle to get, 5$ for 2 months gold pass, and please switch up the pipe prices because they are kind of crackish prizes too. Minor things! Oh and multilayer come on I thought this would have been on the game from the jump Fun Run even had that option. Hopefully this helps maybe it won't but hopefully something #Gonehappen. Signed, A Mario Kart addict 😁🤪
Off to an incredible start.
by J.Dia on 2019/09/26 02:43
Keeping in mind that it literally JUST came out and isn’t going to start off perfect, I think it’s off to a beautiful start. I have been waiting for Mario Kart to come out on IOS for a long time, and although some people have had their issues with it so far, I’m looking past simple things such as “the controls bother me” or “it should be in landscape rather than portrait” because those are simple things that can be fixed easily with a few updates as well as just getting used to the game being on a phone rather than a console. The overall game, however, with the characters, carts, coins, gliders, etc. is nothing short of a masterpiece and brings back a familiar wave of nostalgia not from the original Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo, but more so the Mario Kart on the Wii that I personally grew up with. So far (apart from the daily limitations on upgrades and points which I’m not necessarily a fan of) I am absolutely in love with everything about this game and am nothing short of excited to see the future of it, specifically in regards to the future multiplayer mode. To the creators: Thank you, and keep up the good work.
Lots of Fun, Only a few issues
by Osmodious1 on 2019/10/07 10:28
Gonna keep it short. This game is lots of fun. But the controls are a bit janky.. and I don’t think you need the gold pass to have fun.. I didn’t even know this was coming out and I saw all the videos ranting about it before I even played it. I figured I’d give it a try thinking Corporate Commander was sure to have his hands on this one but I found out that it’s not really like that. Yes, locking the 200 cc mode behind the gold pass is a bit much but I personally normally play on 150 cc so this doesn’t affect me much. Also, just from the daily log in bonuses, playing the ranked mode, and completing challenges I’ve gotten enough Rubies or whatever they’re called, to do plenty of summons in game and I may have just gotten lucky but I’ve gotten pretty good pulls just off of those. Another thing people complain about is them basically “charging money for Mario” but after just a few short days of playing a few minutes here and their, you know like, on the toilet, dosing off to bed, in the waiting room, I had enough in game currency to just buy Mario off of the store. Anyway, this wasn’t exactly a short review. But I enjoy the game. It just has a few problems it needs to Iron out.
Amazing but some nostalgia issues
by huneybea on 2019/09/27 18:14
I think the way the put it on mobile is absolutely amazing. However... some new characters and karts were added and that’s always fun. But there’s not as many secret passages, most players have auto steering on, and there’s not as many maps. Now hold on, so far I’ve passed 12 cups. With four levels per cup. So there’s 48 levels... but it’s the same few levels with slight variations. AND there’s no rainbow road yet. I would be more than happy if the producers decided to add a casual gameplay with some of the old maps from 3ds, wii, etc. Also multiplayer isn’t out yet. Which is a big bummer. I am still curious as to when that’s going to be added. “Future update” but doesn’t say when. It’s still a fun game nonetheless. It’s just way different compared to classic Mario kart. You need to unlock characters, karts, gliders, and maps. Which is okay but it takes too long to get those things and the game becomes boring after you can’t unlock anything more for the day. Now this is without me paying extra for rubies or coins. I’m sure if you purchased those things your time would be more fun for a short while.
Hello Mario cart
by boy575 on 2019/11/10 08:35
I love this game tbh, I play everyday max my exp gain and my coin gain every time, but the game needs more you see my family plays too and they are getting bored because there’s not enough rewards to help them out. They are new and I want to help them but u guys just made it even harder for them with the all the tours needing to do 5000 points when they don’t even have anything to help them out. Plus for us loyal players we are getting the same rewards like the ultra rare character (or legendary character) was the same as the first tour really made me mad. I got gold for items that I don’t have, not for items that we all have... all I’m asking is for u guys to give us hope that something big is coming a light for me to keep playing this game because after two or three more tours I might stop playing and never look back because it seems that all the things everyone is saying is that all u guys just want money... please help me believe that, that’s not true. Help me believe that Nintendo wants loyal fans instead of money. For all the people that are thinking of playing I would say try it out this game is great but it will be hard for you to pick it up. And with that I say good luck.
Mario kart tour has many problems
by Vincentw12345 on 2019/10/11 21:02
I’ll start simple. Paywalls, this game is not just an app, it’s a filthy cash grab that blocks every necessity behind a paywall. Sure you can play the game for free but as a Nintendo fan my whole life I don’t think this is what they SHOULD be doing. I’m all for calling out a company when they really need and now is definitely a good time too. The only reason this game is popular now is because everyone has a phone and no one wants to waste money on a system just to play Mariokart on it. Online play isn’t even online play, it just randomly generates names and puts you up against them. And I love the Mario franchise and would love to see it expanded even more than it is now, but this game didn’t do that for me. Also, Luigi isn’t playable yet(this might be outdated in a couple updates but I still wanted to mention it)? The starting roster has FOUR Marios, it has three peaches and two bowsers, six characters that could’ve been used on Luigi or any other character that hasn’t had a Mariokart debut yet. And finally, I want to mention that giving Nintendo support on this game is giving them reason to make more of these games where everything is blocked via paywalls and that is not how I would expect Nintendo to do things with a Mariokart game on the phone, though dr Mario did the same exact thing and Mario run was average. So Mario kart tour was a disappointment.
DONT READ THIS REVIEW
by Jared Hater on 2019/11/26 02:23
Ok. So at first, I wasn’t that amused and thought that it was just another racing game, or whatever. So for the first few days, I didn’t really play. But, one of my friends begged me to play with her, so I did. After playing more and more, I have come to LOVE Mario kart. It is now my new favorite game and since then, I have unlocked every single cup and have gotten 5 stars on most of them. I am counting down the days until the next store and when multiplayer comes out!! Thank you guys— also I’m now addicted;) Okay so I have just purchased the gold pass and I honestly wish I had purchased it sooner. The tour gifts for the gold pass are so much better, and now I am also able to accumulate way more gems to use the pipe! Each tour gets better and better and I am always just so excited to see the new tours comes out. ****I feel like the last gift should be something really really exciting. Because once I get that final last tour gift, I look at the future prizes and don’t see anything super compelling so it doesn’t force me into striving for those extra stars to make me play the game more. Just a thought!
The steering is horrible
by Collin WM on 2019/09/26 03:55
To start the game looks stunning and from the limited time I have played it seems to run fine on my 8plus however as soon as I hoped on the game and started to race I could instantly tell the steering mechanics were awful. There were numerous times when I would be pulling my thumb to right just to have my character not respond. I’m not sure if it’s a game issue or if I’m doing something wrong but the controls are not intuitive what so ever. Even after I turned on the tilt controls I still had trouble orienting my character the right way. The controls almost seem as if they were purposely made bad for some reason. I think they might be better if there was a button you could press with your other thumb to drift instead of the game just doing it automatically as it causes you to lose control consistently. Also I’m a bit lost as to why they decided to put the game in portrait mode instead of landscape, the choice just seems odd to me as I think that having the game in landscape would allow for much more such as an actually steering wheel, brakes and gas which would be a nice addition. Over I see there is potential in the game I’m just dumbfounded that this is the control scheme they decided to go with. Overall the game could be great they just need to fix the steering.
Strange nuances of a complete game
by Oman531 on 2019/09/27 04:59
I remember buying the original Mario Kart for the wii when it came out over a decade ago. It was my favorite game for several years and still ranks in my top ten to this day. Unfortunately, this game makes me feel like I’m playing a pirated version of that one. I understand that the mobile experience will never be the same, but the mechanics of the game, as well as the currency system, make it much less enjoyable than it could be. The major problem I have is that the point system is disproportionately luck based, whether it’s RNG determining whether you get hit with 5 shells in a row or not, or it’s the collection system that doesn’t give you the item and point advantage that you essentially need to get 5 stars, unless you buy more gems to have more options, of course. I could see how this game is designed to encourage the player to come back to previous cups after collecting more characters, but that seems pointless. The collection system and ruby micro-transactions borderline pay to win gameplay. The races themselves create the odd illusion that you’re playing against real people by assigning random usernames to AIs. Overall, the game is fun, but doesn’t reward the player for skill nearly as much as it should, which makes it frustrating and sometimes not worth it to play.
Disappointing
by AnubisElite on 2019/10/10 14:55
I will say that the game can be really fun. The graphics are nice, though they are a serious drain on my battery. And it has all the fun aspects of Mario Kart. Except, of course, for the multiplayer aspect. None of the people you race are your friends or others online. So it’s always just AI that you are up against. Not as fun. The biggest drawback is, your scores don’t reflect your actual performance so much as the unit, car and glider you use. The problem with this is, it’s all reliant upon a gatcha system. Between the NY and the beginning of the Tokyo tours I think I have done 5 of the multi summons. In those summons I have only received one high end driver, and to my extreme disappointment it was a copy of the Metal Mario I got as a reward from the two week free subscription. So not only are e drop rates awful, there’s nothing to help elevate your chances of getting a unit or car or glider that you want. Which brings me to the subscription. Nintendo wants us to pay $5 every month, the same as an Apple Arcade price, just for this one game? I don’t think so. I got the two week free part for the rewards and then cancelled it. That’s the other thing, if you want the best rewards from the races you need this subscription. This is an awful cash grab with no way to actually enjoy it with your friends, the way Mario Kart is supposed to be. I expected more from Nintendo.
Few Key Features Missing
by Avise22 on 2019/10/17 20:11
Overall this is a great game and I enjoy playing it. I look forward to new cups and tours and enjoy the challenges that come with them. That being said, I still think there are two key features this app is missing: 1) Why is there no storage/ inventory to view all the items I currently have? If I want to see how many item boxes I have, I need to start a race. If I want to see how many quick tickets I have, I need to click on a cup under construction (which isn’t possible if you have all of them unlocked). An inventory or storage tab would be a simple fix to this problem. 2) (FIXED) Why are the badges earned from the first tour no longer available to use for display? Unless you kept a badge from a preceding tour as your displayed badge, you no longer have access to them. This is really unfortunate as I really liked a badge from the first tour that I simply don’t have access to anymore even though I earned it by completing the challenge. This could also be fixed by possibly putting it in the inventory/ storage tab. Or even making a “Badges” tab where players can scroll through all the Badges they’ve earned and build their collection.
They pulled it off
by DopeHomie on 2019/09/25 11:30
Only Nintendo could find a way to make a vertical, touch screen kart racer fun, challenging and intuitive. I’ve played every console iteration since SNES Mario Kart, and this finds a way to play true to the rest of the series. While it took a minute to pick up on and adapt to the new controls, I quickly got back in the familiar rhythm and flow that fans know so well. If your experienced with the console games like myself, do yourself a favor and turn on “gyro controls” right away in settings. It makes all the difference in the world, especially if you are using drift mode. I had to figure this out through frustrations on minor turns, and difficulty aiming for coins. As far as price point for in app purchases, they seem a bit steep from what I’ve seen so far, $20 racer packs, high rupee cost (the currency to unlock racers) and the $5 monthly subscription service which only gives you the opportunity to win rare gold items, as well as 200cc mode. However in Nintendo’s defense, the game is perfectly playable without any IAPs. It really feels like Nintendo put the time and development into this that it deserves.
Great but ......
by Good ness sfb on 2019/10/29 19:31
I have played this game I would love to give it 5 stars but I have gotten error messages and issues with the game will be stated in this review. 1 after finishing a race I have gotten “error has occurred “ and it causes me to not see the points and what you know happens after a race . 2 the game will open and have a three option button game frequently asked questions , support, If the game won’t start. but the game didn’t crash and nothing was wrong! 3 I have the game on two different devices and I got the gold pass but it was confusing I bought the pass on one device and it would just continue over because it’s the same exact account and I after getting on one device open it on the other and it says that since the pass was bought on one device it can’t be used on the device , i.e my second device . I would like to have some answers to the issues other than that game is great. One thing I would love to see come to the game is a better chance to unlock drivers through maybe missions/ challenges or just simply upping the chances or more than one pipe /roll of chance of drivers/karts/gliders . Would love to see these in the future.
The people you play against are disguised as real players. Disappointed.
by Jenuvial on 2019/09/26 15:20
The fact that they really made the AI look like real people is stupid. At least let us know we are going against bots and name them by the character name instead of fooling people into believing they are having real races with real people. If the game was already online I would be more proud of the game but so far I am not. I personally like the Rubies and the Gold because it is a mobile game and people need something to strive for in game, but for kids this is NOT a good game to be playing. But still, on the other hand, I love Mario Cart and I have been playing since I was a baby, so I am definitely still going to play it. Everything in the game is as it should be, there are levels from all different versions of the game and even some updated versions of older levels. The game looks beautiful and its is easy to learn. What I hope to see in the future is a wide screen mode, different controls to where you can use a joy stick, or to be able to touch the screen on different sides to go left and right and then continue to slide the screen to drift, which would be easier than the controls now. They are weird at first but when u get used to it, its pretty fun.
Amazing but ruined
by charles42396 on 2019/10/22 23:53
Such a great game and once you get used to the controls is actually tons of fun. The way the cups are set up to it’s like you never beat it, it just keeps adding levels for you. And so many characters carts and gliders to collect. But here’s where it got ruined; micro transactions. I understand in today’s day and age we need mtx or the games can’t continue and won’t make their money. But there’s a difference between pay to play and pay to win. In the beginning you get 5 stars on everything regardless of your gear. Then it gets harder but with the gear you roll you should have a decent chance on each track for 5 stars. Then it gets harder. Currently I’m at the point where I can get first in every race but only get 2 stars. Basically I’m at a point where I can move on to the next cup because I don’t have enough stars but I got FIRST in EVERY race.. so I’m at a point where I’m either forced to buy better gear for more bonus points to get more stars or just not play the game/continuously redo races I already won just for giggles. You can do challenges for rubies and stars but I’ve done most of them already. They truly did well on this game but just ruined it. I can’t even watch adds for stars or rubies? like come on give us an option to move on besides paying you money.. I’m stuck and can’t continue without $$$
Great game but needs some improvements
by Hlywood33 on 2019/09/30 19:40
Ok so don’t get me wrong, I love this game. When I heard that Nintendo was releasing Mario kart to mobile devices I was stoked! So let’s get into the issues. First off, the multiplayer aspect. I was honestly looking forward to multiplayer when I got the game. But I was surprised that it wasn’t released yet since the game was delayed a bit ago. I would like to think that multiplayer would be released by now but it isn’t. Another thing is the fact that we have to wait a certain amount of time for tours to be unlocked. I just find that kinda annoying because as of right now I can’t play any new tours because the next tour has two days until it’s accessible to be played. I understand that you guys are doing your best but I mean the game was delayed by a few months and in that time stamp I would think at least multiplayer would be released. I just hope that it’s released soon. Other than the current issues I love the game. This really brings a new aspect to mobile games and I look forward to the near future of this game. And maybe you guys could look into releasing some other Nintendo related games. Hope this review gets a reply.
A truly fun game
by Hillgrovelb45 on 2019/09/26 02:34
For a day one experience I personally do enjoy the game as it is at the moment. For my 6s, the game runs smoothly and I encounter very little to no lag while playing. The gameplay is a unique blend of the Mario Kart formula with a spin on it. The spin is the customizable karts and characters being locked by a pay wall. Now this would be a major problem if the majorly effected gameplay but at this current time it can make getting stars a bit easier. How it works is certain characters, karts, and gliders give certain boosts to your game. I have made it past the daisy cup and have collected all stars, meaning it is possible and not super challenging to obtain these stars. The “battle pass” is an ok addition which gives some extra content. For five dollars a month it is the only reasonable piece of in app purchase. However the gems are STUPID expensive. When you have to pay roughly 25 dollars for a multi you will not run into pay to win players at all due to these steep prices. My overall experience with this game has been a blast and I personally can’t wait for further updates in the game and it is definitely worth your time because the entry fee to the game is FREE!
Nostalgia to an Extent
by Anonymoist on 2019/09/26 00:25
I love the fact they made Mario Kart for iOS. However, there is no online multiplayer (yet). They claim to be adding online multiplayer racing in a later version but that’s what I initially thought I was downloading. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game, but they better introduce that soon to keep the game alive. With how the “storyline” goes, it makes you stop naturally progressing and wait for “tracks to be built.” Kind of annoying so far but that’s kinda my point with the online multiplayer aspect. You won’t need to stall players from beating the game in 4 hours with online multiplayer activities, games, and tournaments. The microtransactions hopefully will stay under control. They’re equalized by being able to earn the purchaseable content through ranking up. As soon as that changes, this game will plummet. But that’s everything I can find wrong with this game at the moment. This game is a flash back to the past and is just as amazing. Just like every game starting out, it’s gonna have some bugs and the devs are gonna need to see reviews from its player-base, but this game has potential to be something amazing for this next generation to enjoy just as much as mine did!!
Game crashes instead of giving rewards and customer service calls you a liar
by Mobleyyyyyyyy on 2019/10/28 06:06
Now on my third issue where the game has crashed on completion of a task causing the reward to not be given was rudely told by customer service that i was pretty much lying about 3 rubies when i told them i had screenshots of proof that it wasnt awarded they told me they went through my game data and was able to see the completion and the reward given and when i counted all awarded rubies and those spent already the variant was 3 rubies meaning i was never awarded them. Customer service again didnt care when i completed a race given me the flatten three racers in a single race where they completely ignored me after i said they should do as they claimed before and check my game data on my phone to see and i found my customer service link downed for exactly 24hrs after with no response i asked then to cancel my paid subscription if they choose to not respond and be so rude to me over 3rubies then against over 2stars which is literally such small amounts if not the smallest amount compared to their transactions to fix fix my issue wouldve cost them $1.99 when i pay $5 a month so they decided that i wasnt worth fixing the issue and now im on a third issue where im not even gonna try and get it fixed ive cancels paid subscription and deleted game
Fun but many problems
by Deadpool123654 on 2019/09/30 15:09
Gold pass costs to much money for little to no value. The only thing you’re getting is 200cc, bonus challenges and items but it quickly runs out if you play daily and finish everything fast. The limit towards how many points you can get from races to upgrade your cars and characters is ridiculous. Just don’t have that, why is it there in the first place? It finishes in no more than 10 races which can be finished in less that 15 minutes. That’s terribly low and boring. You play afterwards for no reward and have nothing to look forward to other than try to 5 star all the races. Some of them are either extremely easy or extremely difficult. You need to have legendary characters and karts to get all the stars but that’s impossible to begin with because the chances of you unlocking one of those characters or items are so low. Let alone they need to have a bunch of points to even come close to 4 stars. But how can you do that with a low point limit? Overall it’s a very fun game but this decisions make the game extremely boring in a one hour play time. If these things were removed or fixed for the better, this game would easily be 5 stars
Game has a glitch
by Ivsosa on 2019/10/27 06:37
I am absolutely obsessed with This game I had been waiting years for this to be available via phone. Now that it is available, one of the concerns is why won’t the game allow me to stead off Road and use ramps that are outside the actual road. I’ve attempted many times to use them and it seems like there is a wall I hit and I end up driving sideways onto this invisible wall that prevents me from using off road ramps. The second thing I would like is to be able to play with the friends I add. One of the challenges is to have 3 friends but I find it useless if we can’t even play live with them or speak to them I feel like it’s only to help advertise. Third it would be amazing if we could find a different way to add friends in general because other than that I have to ask everyone if they play which is a bit awkward. The gold pass as well isn’t so much beneficial so charging $5 monthly is a bit of a reach I would of hoped it gave you a higher chance rate for player when you shot the canon but it doesn’t it gives you repeated players.
Disappointing Microtransaction/Subscription Model
by fiwbskfj on 2019/10/11 20:18
If Mario Run was supposed to be Nintendo’s experiment in upending the terrible model for mobile gaming, it must have failed. Although Mario Run is vastly superior to Mario Kart Tour, it probably will not make as much money. It is unfortunate that Nintendo is choosing to abandon its one-game-long push to change mobile gaming for the better, because Tour is just as unpleasant to play as any of the microtransaction-ridden dumpsters crowding the App Store. It’s not any better or even different from knockoffs like Angry Birds Racing or Sonic Racing. Come on, this was supposed to be Mario Kart! This one was supposed to be better! Grinding through the game without purchasing coins or purchasing g a subscription (Apple Arcade costs the same per month for hundreds of games, and even that’s still not a good idea) is a slog. Even if you get first place, you may end up without a high score if you didn’t buy the right racer/kart first. Coins come about a dozen per race, so good luck saving up the thousands necessary to get new racers and karts without buying into the awful microtransaction ecosystem. This game is for the 5% of people who will frequently spend real-world money to buy imaginary coins. This game is not for the 95% of us who just want to play a game. Really disappointing.

lol the biggest reason this was so hyped was because so many people wanted to race each other
Awful

Couldn’t even finish a few races before I was done with with it. Bring on Mario kart 9 on the switch please wow this was awful. Build vertically? Who the heck designed that lol terrible. Worst game game I’ve ever played 🏁

Mixed feelings.
by Kellymusic on 2019/12/07 06:48
So I’ve been addicted to this game since it’s came out but the past couple of weeks not so much. With the amount of times it lags and cancels you out the app it’s super frustrating. I was just playing one of the new races and finished with almost 16,000 points and then it kick me off the app and it never applied, even though I finished it . It crashes quite frequently, I’m constantly trying to get 5 stars but it’s hard when you can’t always have the top characters so you’re just stuck with unfinished races. It’s hard to get characters without rubies or paying for rather the pass or the rubies . It’s crashed and lagged so much I don’t even think it’s worth it anymore especially since there isn’t even multiplayer yet. I played this game religiously, especially always trying to get 1st in tiers which I succeeded with most but it’s just gone down hill with all the bugs and just a lot . Hopefully it will be fixed eventually so no one else has to deal with this further.
Great potential for a classic at an overpriced offer
by Spynniker on 2019/12/07 05:43
This is good I cannot denied that but it has several problems that I'm sure Nintendo already knows: - Overpriced items to purchase, and they can say that no one is force to buy anything at their prices but here is where the game start losing its magic because without some special items you will be no one in the game at all other will win over easily - Auwful steering controls, the kart constantly moves to the opposite direction where I'm supposed to pressing in the screen, I have lost a lot of times because of this - You won't be compared with other players with your same skills and level, I have saw that the game in its random logic when creates the group of 20 to the week tournament puts players with higher level with other in lower level so here there is not option for this people to win something if they are not compare with other in the same level (i.e. A level 40 playing against a level 25, there's no opportunity for the lower level to win against this condition) - The pipe prices, for those who have the Golden Pass the chance to win something special from the are real low, in my case I have spend 60 tries and haven't received nothing useful from the pipe so this is very frustrating to see how you earn the overpriced rubies and they're useless in the pipe Probably will continue playing but as frequently as the beginning of this game because of all problems commented above.

Game cheats, not fun
by Hunting Humans on 2019/12/07 03:45
Don’t be in first place the whole race, the game will stop you before you cross the finish. Cheap garbage. I can’t tell you how many times this game hits me with a blue shell when I’m about to cross the finish in first place. Nearly every time I play. Just in the last hour it has happened three times in a row. Like clockwork, I tell my friend “watch this...last lap and finish line is in sight, bet you I get hit with”...and suddenly there’s the alert for incoming blue shell!! 🤣 Also, there are times when I’m about to win and my car hits an invisible barrier. The last time was while going over a boost pad! So, instead of going faster, the game made me slow to crawl. Nothing hit me, just suddenly slowed and then watched the other racers pass me by at the finish, install went from 1st to 4th place. That’s pathetic programming, and it’s clearly intentional. I get it, nintendo really wants me to spend money. So, they program the game to tease you, let you ALMOST win, maybe if I just used a power up, or had a slightly better kart...oh wait, I can pay real money for those. Nice try Nintendo. Deleted this trash.
Fun at First, but gets very boring
by Switch Master 23 on 2019/12/07 02:43
Don’t get me wrong, the game is very, very addicting at first, but after playing tour after tour, it gets extremely repetitive. Until multiplayer is added, I would wait to play.

The only reason for the four stars is that I feel the game is missing a pure multiplayer mode.

Please fix.
by Jasonvalle666 on 2019/12/07 01:11
Nobody likes paying for things in a game like this unless it’s COSMETIC. It’s fun enough for me to want to play but the game crashes whenever I get 1st place, which is every time because I’m pretty sure you don’t actually get to play with other people around the world. Again. FUN, but not good enough. I’m gonna go play a real Mario Kart game now.
👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼

This game used to be fine, but every time I play on the app now it lags like crazy and it completely shuts down in the middle of a race.

Do Not Like It
by lillian1309 on 2019/12/06 21:45
I always look for fun and enjoyable games to play. I saw this one on a home page at the App Store and some friends had it so I got it. I had watched the videos on the app’s page. It seemed like so much fun! When I opened the app every single time (I had had it for about two weeks) it would give me a miscommunication notice. I deleted it. It was NOT worth getting because it never worked! I wish I could have tried it . I wish they would just fix the error. Also my phone always has connection. I was really disappointed in this app.
Game started out great
by ChelPapp on 2019/12/06 21:43
But... now the ruby situation really makes it hard to want to keep playing. I work hard for a tiny amount, only to get horrible prizes, not even a slight chance for anything mid tier it seems anymore. All of the challenges and almost all of the avatars are the same each time you achieve it so it’s hard to even look forward to anything. When the game first came out, there was always a chance I could get a decent prize here and there, but now all I got are repeats over and over again these last 3 tours. Still love the game, just wish there was more to look forward to.

Only little more coins, rubyes and gifts, without gold pass !
What am I paying for again ?!
by lola_bunnysxy on 2019/12/06 19:03
I love the game don’t get me wrong but what am I paying $4.99 for again ? I feel like the people who actually pay for the game should be able to do more in game. There really should be more in game advantages besides getting better karts faster. If I’m a paying customer I should be able to win more as well as earn more prizes. The game store itself is way too pricey I feel that everything should be a few gems less as well as coins.

It’s Mario Kart… but…
by ChronosTimeMage on 2019/12/06 16:48
Unless you are constantly playing and saving for better karts/characters, you’ll soon hit a road block in which case the game will shove micro transactions in your face (couple dollars here and there and you’ll eventually pay for a full game with only around half the content unlocked… and even then you will continue to grind for better stats)
Fun...but...
by xosaara137ox on 2019/12/06 15:48
Cons: -Pay to win -“Premium” currency too expensive -25$ for 10 pulls on the pipe -Need 70-100 pulls to get new high ends -75$ to get 1 high end with coin rush -Only able to earn rubies for 10 pulls/week -Without gold pass you’ll be saving for months -Tier 20 bottleneck makes earning rubies even harder than it is already set up, monster scores that only paying players can beat and no way to move down in tiers -Not enough races. Before the first week of a tour is over I have already finished all challenges, races, and unlocked all gifts...then twiddle my thumbs for another 10 days waiting for something new -Waiting for new tours to unlock every day is awful -Ranked leaderboards require high ends to compete -Older devices constantly crash and lose progress -Caps on XP/Coins per day are too low. After 5-8 races I am done playing for the day, too focused on casual play while looking to get in your wallet. -Caps on Player Level is by course, so when there’s only 1 new course with 4-5 variants, there’s about 50 races I can’t even see progress on. Should reset per tour. -Minimal benefits for gold pass, at 5$/month there should be more challenges, benefits, and ways to earn to make the cost worthwhile. -Too many character variants watering down the pool. I have pink gold peach, peachette, peach, vacation peach...and most are at level 1 with only one ticket per 2 weeks to level high ends. Pros: -It’s fun Make it less of a gatcha game and add more content, ASAP.
Crashes
by SaraSIays on 2019/12/06 15:08
It’s a lot of fun, but crashes every 3rd race on iOS12, either at the very start of a race when the list of drivers closes, or at the very end when the leaderboard comes up. Need to constantly force close the app to avoid losing progress.

Perfect for Mario Kart beginners, disappointing to veterans
by Nayvul Joos on 2019/12/06 14:03
I’ve played Mario Kart for just under a decade and can tell you that this is disappointing for me. There are only two laps per map and the constant begging of in app purchases are bothersome. Aside from that, the game is wonderful and I highly recommend to people who are not true gamers.

by random name 2576 on 2019/12/06 13:07
This has easily become my favorite game in the short time since it came out, I am a Mario kart pro any version any system give me the controller and I’ll get first GUARANTEED, but recently those have become too easy because the CPUs were way to predictable/consistent however in this version I’m racing people all over the globe, I still ALWAYS get first but it’s a nice challenge with the points. The no pause feature is annoying but I still totally love this game. I’ve been waiting for this game since its ORIGINAL scheduled date back in March and then during summer vacation and it was worth it - an young but retro pro

Mario Mart, not Mario Kart
by Ryan Webb on 2019/12/06 07:12
This game only resembles Mario Kart but is far from it. Dumbed down controls and make the game about getting points and buying in game loot box crap and give it a Star Wars Battlefront style leveling system. If you can get 1st in points without actually getting in first place the game is no longer about skill and track times but getting combo points that are magnified by your paid for loot, and add a paywall that limits what you can actually play and put a glass ceiling on your game progression for $5 a month which is more then what you pay for Nintendo Switch online. Sounds fair right?
Still no fix on the crashing issue
by RyanLundgren on 2019/12/06 06:19
You lose your progress if the app crashes for what I see is for no reason. iOS fully up to date, great WiFi speeds, full battery, over 10GB of extra space on my phone, and all apps closed so this can’t be because of something I’m doing. Auto loss if the app crashes. No opportunity to join back in the game and sometimes this happens before you even start a race, sometimes you’ve just gone over the finish line. I’ve never got last place but I’m sure my statistics have over 100 just because of how often this happens. This is Nintendo, I don’t know how kinks like this still haven’t been worked out. I’ve even paid for a gold pass but it happens just as often so I won’t be participating in the future passes until this issue is resolved. It’s getting worse! It’s now gotten so bad that I can’t even race at all, once I hit the finish line the app crashes. Very upset that I don’t get to use an app I spent money on. Worst 4.8🌟 game with all of the issues and the delayed online functionality.
Terrible
by mini21415 on 2019/12/06 05:46
It lags when you get in first than makes people just skip in front of you and game freezes when your in a race
The game is great but...

No horizontal screen?
by WyattMPhoebe on 2019/12/06 04:21
How could you possibly develop this game and not have an option for a horizontal screen? That’s so outrageously incompetent. How could you have ignored something that is clearly so intuitive. The developers are the clearest example of the pure essence of incompetence that I have ever witnessed.

MKT item suggestions
by sphanis on 2019/12/06 03:58
Amazing game! I just want to make some suggestions for new and returning items. Maybe add things like fake item box, feather and boo. Also, include pirhana plant. POW block would also be nice along with thunder cloud. I’m thinking also a super bell, which would have the user dash forward just like a mushroom, and causes the opponents to spin out when you hit them. Also, a goomba that walks around the track. Then maybe a poison mushroom that shrinks opponents. Also, a penguin suit. I don’t know what it would do though. Also, bring Back the black shell. That’s all!

This is a review. I’m sorry
by CoffeePlease224 on 2019/12/05 23:51
If you have any sense in that mushroom and banana infested plumber head, by loving god of all things Mario and Karty, don’t download this frickin’ game. I don’t care if Toad begged his diaper off for you to play, it’s broken. I’ve had it for a week, and it’s already frozen 72 times. The week I did have and play it the bots were stopping in the middle of a race, and it kicked me out a multitude of times. Please heed my warnings; this game is better on a Switch. Even a WII U by god. Just not a phone. Thanks Nintendo

Upset
by epic Buffet on 2019/12/05 18:47
I’m so upset I can’t download the game and play. I don’t have a Nintendo account so I can’t play. Very upset!!!
It’s a great game but...

It’s a very great game but I just wish rosalina is in the shop cuz she’s my favorite charecter
App crashing
by m_decuna on 2019/12/05 16:56
The game seems cool, but I can’t finish a race without the app crashing. The software is up to date, but I also have an iPhone 7 so not sure what’s going on.
So many errors

Pay to play
by Count Jarim the 3 on 2019/12/05 15:21
If you want any of the good characters then prepare to pay a pretty penny. It’s next to impossible to get the limited edition characters from the pipes.
5 stars minus 3= needs improvement
by August West 221 on 2019/12/05 15:14
This is 5 star FUN! However the game consistently crashes every few races. I would consider purchasing add ons and supporting the developers efforts if I felt this was solid.
It’s getting too hard
by Mirah22690111 on 2019/12/05 15:12
I used to love this game. But now with all the updates gets getting really hard and is pissing off me and my friends. There’s too many characters to keep up with and what ur adding them for is pointless. It’s just a repeat of the same character. Same with the maps. Make new of the maps and the challenges a bit easier. The teir points is horrible and needs to go down a lot more 36,000 is just way too much.
Mariocart

So I love this game but for a couple days I would go in and it would say the game has crashed and I have WiFi I don’t know what this is about but I really want to play the game it is really fun and I just love it thanks Nintendo
It's not working
by _cupcake_cutie_;) on 2019/12/05 11:52
I've tried getting into the game and it's not letting me, it freezes on screen and says "what if the game stops working" "questions frequently asked" and another option but even when I try clicking on it the screen is completely frozen
Great Racing Game
by Mr.Univerze on 2019/12/05 09:26
The controls are intuitive and responsive. The levels are classic and level design is never the same which is also great. Over all I love this game I just wish it was a bit easier to get carts and characters and gliders but I also understand y’all gotta get yours

It’s an amazing game other than the fact I can’t race the people on my friends list AND my game has been crashing all day long. I haven’t been able to play it any of the times I’ve tried to load it & there isn’t an update. Not sure what’s wrong but I hope y’all fix it soon.
This game is pay to win
by Coco the great3016372 on 2019/12/05 06:14
I loved the game at first but I realized that this game is based on points, not skill. You have to buy gems to get the cars and characters you need to win and the other racers aren’t even real people. This game is just another way for Nintendo to make truckloads of money. I loved the idea of the game and I was really looking forward to it until I realized what it really is.
Add Controller support
by E&J+L on 2019/12/05 05:59
Bring a more console like experience. Game feels too much like an annoying mobile game. Companies like game loft try to bring console gaming to mobile and even apple’s arcade is not bad.
Good until last update
by Goldy Goldy on 2019/12/05 05:47
Crashes repeatedly since the new tour was added in latest update. The app won’t stay open long enough to play even one race. It was a fun game until today. Now it’s not a game.
Constant crash

Each new tour is full of glitches
by someone who tries to play on 2019/12/05 05:12
Every two weeks the game requires an update for a new tour and the first 2-3 days it boots you out midway through a race. The first time wasn't that big of a deal but it's becoming a consistent habit of the game.
I love the game but

Crashing
by Cutest- on 2019/12/05 05:08
I love this game, I really do. However, there is one bad bit. I have no idea what I am going to get from day to day. Sometimes I go in and play the game just fine, sometimes the game glitches like crazy, and sometimes it just crashes. It will crash in the beginning, OR it will let you start a race and then crash in the middle of the race. Super frustrating.
nostalgia effect :~)
by rosaliebryson on 2019/12/05 04:52
i love this game. i don’t usually write reviews but i HAD TO for this. despite its flaws, the sometimes frustrating controls and whatever, it’s still an awesome game. the tracks look just like the mario kart tracks we know and love &new additions and challenges :) it gives me total nostalgia, and the game is so fun once you get used to it. (i would never choose it over the OG 3DS game, though. hehe) signed, a college student who has lost her 3DS :P

Every time when the game begins it always says MARIO kart has crashed. And you have to start the app again. This needs to be fixed like NOW it is very frustrating and annoying

by qhehdhhxh on 2019/12/05 02:43
So when I first got this game it was fun but it was only the practice one.When I was done the thing said it needed to download so I waited and waited but it still took forever! And I thought maybe it’s my phone. Then I tried it the next day and after that and it still not working so maybe can you guys fix that.(I don’t get it, it works for other people)

Fun game but
by Patlann on 2019/12/05 02:05
I love the game however I wish their were more races because after a a few days of playing you have to wait for them to open. I also don't like how when you spend 45 gems on the pipe you get multiple items of the same thing and you only get one good item. Its hard to earn gems and I don't see that being fair way to earn items. I also don't like that the same items keep getting added to the shop and they never add plays or karts that I don't have.

Fun but limiting
by Anymouse58 on 2019/12/05 00:38
Why do you limit the number of coins and exp points we can earn each day. I bought the gold pass, it should include more coins & exp points each day. Fun game but stop being cheap with the good karts, drivers, coins & exp points.
Can be frustrating, but good overall.
by SunsetSylveon on 2019/12/05 00:15
Occasionally you’ll find yourself being SO CLOSE to the score you need and not getting it but you probably would if you just had a different character, vehicle, or glider. That can be really frustrating but overall, a LOT of work was clearly put into this game. It’s pretty fun :)

Love the game! But...
by AlexandraReid on 2019/10/22 08:39
As much as I’m fully addicted to this game right now, I can’t help but feel like there’s more to be changed. I guess it’s not something that will get changed but the pipe firing. It frustrates me bc rubies aren’t all that easy to get (not to mention if you wanted to just buy some they’re crazy overpriced). And it’s 5 rubies per shot. But the problem I have is the prizes aren’t good? Like yeah you get a chance to win a special one but I’d say 9/10 I don’t get anything special. It might give me like 1 level ticket to a certain item but it’s usually something I don’t use/isn’t useful for any of the races in the tour. I just think your chances should be increased to get special characters/karts/gliders. ESPECIALLY when you need some of these characters to actually get all 5 stars on a race. It makes it virtually impossible to complete every race with 5 stars. I feel like Nintendo went straight for the money on this one. Most in-app purchases for apps of a similar caliber are way more affordable. If the rubies were more affordable, you’d actually make more money because more people would be inclined to buy them. And if you’re like me, you’ll spend $5 a bunch of times and end up giving way more money to the company than necessary. I just hate to waste rubies on a maybe. I guess that’s the gamble though. This was far too long anyways, but I just felt the need to voice my opinion on it.
I love this game but...
by Smoshgamesisawesome on 2019/11/03 04:31
Hello there, i downloaded this game when it first came out and found that it was an amazing game, however I have a few points for the developers. The first point is I know that as a company you need to make money but charging 2 bucks for 3 rubies it kind of ridiculous especially because we would be paying 5 a month for gold pass for your game. I would recommend that you could have an option to use your coins that you earned to purchase a few rubies and the more coins you have the more rubies you can purchase. My second point is that you need to come out with a online multiplayer so that everyone can play with there friends! I would love to be able to challenge my friends and see who can do the best instead of playing strangers all of the time, it needs to come soon instead of just “inbound”. I also would recommend that you add a few more maps for the weekly challenge because I know most of me and my friends outplay them in a day and it just leaves us to replay each map all week until the new ones are realized. I also think you should make it phone orientation directed, so that you can turn your phone side ways and race or have it vertical. Other than these few points of improvement this game is great, I love the tube aspect of how you receive your prizes and I just have always loved Mario cart.
!👍🏾
by drew_818 on 2019/09/26 23:53
When I first saw that nintendo was releasing Mario kart on mobile is the best news I’ve heard so far as in mobile games couldn’t get any better. Don’t get me wrong the gameplay of the game is really fun the best experience also with the main menu and the shop all those features are really nice for. Than when I come to find out I have to upgrade the karts and the gliders and characters It’s alright I don’t have a problem with it. On what I do is that it would be better if we where allowed to get a little more coins than we do same thing with the gems just feels like I’m not getting enough for the items in the shop. Another thing is I wish there weren’t that many limits to stuff and wish we could get a little more rewards in the game like items to upgrade and more coins, same with the gems. Just hope these things would happen in later updates oh and another thing that would make the game a little better don’t end up making the game be a “pay to win game” that would make the experience even better. Hopefully more characters are added in the game and karts, gliders, maps and the multiplayer hope it’s like the same experience like the Nintendo switch but besides that great game lots of fun something really new.!!!
exciting..but
by ssmvx on 2019/09/25 19:31
getting mario kart for mobile was a huge deal for me, as this was a game i played daily as a child. however, after playing it for a little bit i have found some things that i’m not very fond of. the first being the experience needed to level up your carts being limited on a daily basis. that disappointed me as i feel like i can’t level up and get better as quickly as i would like. also, the “gold pass” is another issue i had with the game. i wouldn’t of minded paying a one time fee, but $5 MONTHLY is a bit much for a game. i pay that amount for apple music, apple arcade, etc. another tiny issue i have are the controls, i feel like that could’ve been planned out better. i was expecting the game to be played sideways, but it’s played vertical which i found odd, but not a huge deal. finally, the multiplayer aspect of the game annoyed me. i thought multiplayer would’ve been available when i downloaded the game, but after downloading and doing some research i found out it won’t be available until saturday. in my opinion, i wouldn’t of released the game until saturday then. as i was looking forward to using that feature and now i have to wait longer to use it. i think everybody is overhyping this a bit too much, and while i’m glad nintendo brought mario kart to mobile, i just think there are some aspects of the game that aren’t great which really brings the gameplay experience down. i hope future updates will improve the quality of the game.
Decent 1st Version, Definitely Still Needs Work
by GameTommy on 2019/10/06 04:51
The initial released version of the game is decent, but there are several issues that make the game only 3 or 4 out of 5 stars. First, there is no way to allow you to decide if you want to steer regularly or to turn by drifting other than choosing Settings WHILE THE RACE IS STILL GOING and change the setting for manual steering and hope nothing happens while you do that. Second, when making very small changes in direction to straighten myself out I’ve frequently accidentally used items. Both of these issues could be resolved by changing the touch controls. I’d suggest having holding your finger on the screen should allow regular turning while a tap near the kart will allow drifting, and also having a tap away from the kart to use items. A third (minor) issue is not being able to slow down. I’ve had several cases where a Blue Shell is closing in when I’m barely in 1st and my only option to get in 2nd is to do a hard turn into a wall so the other kart gets hit instead. Good things about the game is the very low cellular data usage when no Wi-Fi is available, the ability to auto use current items when you go through an item box so you get new items, and the great courses. I look forward to seeing the issues fixed so there will be nothing bad holding the game back.
A couple changes could really improve game play
by Jmo666 on 2019/09/26 23:06
From start up app is completely user friendly, easy to navigate as well as get started even if you don’t have a Nintendo profile. Once in the game it looks amazing, all the great memories of childhood come flooding back and you are reunited with your inner child. My only complaint is game play, as it is streamless and easy to use I feel it is lacking in both immersion as well as accuracy. Immersion, I feel playing the game in wide screen and giving the player a true left and right as well as throttle and break controls, or keep auto throttle and move weapon usage and drift on buttons, could even set it up for double tap in the direction of the turn to initiated drift or put turning on joystick but swiping left and right. Swiping left and right seems to have the vehicle constantly needing a direction input due to a lack of getting back on center too slowly or something of that nature. Game play, I feel if the above is changed it will completely improve game play and bring competitiveness forefront as well as the want to continue to play and advance through the game. Just my two pennies. Those are the only reasons I give the game 4 out of 5. Everything else in the game is amazing but those areas are lacking, playing on wide screen and a change to driving controls would be highly encouraged.
Rant
by 674239 on 2019/10/19 21:23
Game doesn’t want you to win and even if you get first place, the game will base you off of your performance. This game will do anything in its power to help make the “other real players” win. Why quote on quote? Well because in the tour mode you are not actually playing with real player, they are just computer players generated with real player names and load outs. As I was playing this game I noticed something that was very annoying, I would click the button that allows me to view behind me and when I would let go, it would change my controls from Manuel drift to standard driving. Also, in a race when I was right next to a computer player, I was focused in on trying to get ahead of this computer BUT the computer player just TELEPORTS? Ahead of me? Haha wow if that’s how this game is going to be, I am better of playing a Mario kart game that is actually fair. Two more things, the prices and the gold pass. The prices to purchase rubies are just wow. You mean to tell me that I have to pay two dollars for 3 rubies, not even enough for a ONE SHOT PIPE. Now the Gold pass. Seriously? I have to pay 5 dollars A MONTH for: 200cc and bonus awards and display badges? And that’s basically it, 200 cc which will probably have the computer players act impossible to beat with the way they are programmed unless you have the top load out for the race, the bonus awards aren’t too bad but golden display badges? Really? They don’t even look that good.
Fun and addicting, but some sketchy moves by Nintendo
by Masuel9 on 2019/09/27 14:16
Few things I found wrong here after playing for awhile. The number of different maps is limited, as each cup just makes a random combination choosing from a selection of maybe 10-12 of them. Secondly, just the option to pay for a “gold pass” (5$ monthly) is annoying to me. I hate in game subscriptions that just make you better than other players, it takes the fun out of the grind. Plus, limiting the amount you can level up riders, carts, and gliders in one day makes it seem like a clear money grab as the game forces you to pay for extra coins, gems, gold pass, etc. lastly, the obvious attempt at deceiving the players making it seem like they’re playing online when in reality it’s bots with creative names is a bit sketchy. I’ve seen tons of reviewers on the App Store alone actually believing that they are playing against real players when they enter a cup. This is a big deal because once you find out everything is just computer AI, it gets repetitive and boring fast. I really enjoy the way they condensed the game-play to fit into the quick style of phone games, I appreciate the grind aspect even if it seems to be cornering me into paying, and I hope the multiplayer that comes out on Saturday can redeem the other poor qualities of Mario Kart Tour. For now though, 3/5 is about the most you can give it.
New York Minute Map Rant
by Kkkkkkaaaaaddddeee on 2019/10/01 06:09
The game is very fun, however I do find coin grinding to be a bit repetitive, only earning 50 gold per match. Also, New York is probably my least favorite map, making it very difficult for me to reach 5 stars, even though I play 150 cc every race or event I do. I don't have a driver that has more than 1 items slot,(there being only 4, all of which are above common[diddy kong, Bowser, Pauline, Mario with a suit])Before, I had a problem on this map in The Bowser cup, in which I grinded from level 4 to 12 on that map alone, taking me 3 days to eventually have rng side in my favor(I didn’t have the kart for x2-3 points, so being first on lap1 and 2, and reaching 1800 bonus points from random stuff to reach the 4,600 points I needed.) Overall, I am in a situation where 5 grand stars are half based on rng, hoping I get items instead of Mushrooms, and not getting hit AT ALL by other racers. I’ve got the drifting down, holding green shells and bananas for extra protection against red shells, and riding into other racers if they are riding me. Now its diddy kong cup, near situation except the goal is 5300 instead of 4600. And the characters this time are: Pauline, diddy kong, donkey kong, and mario with a suit. I have the highest tier cart for the level(x2 points) and a middle tier glider. However, I’m stuck with toad to chug through the race.
Amazing initial release
by Plexiuss on 2019/09/27 22:37
I have very high hopes for the game; though as I’ve seen the general amount of complaints and see them being mostly unfair. Many people complain about it playing vertical- but it’s honestly more accessible and something you can just quickly play with it being vertical- though it would be nice to see an option to flip your screen before the race, that’s no reason to completely disregard the game. Gameplay can be somewhat simplistic, but it’s fun and accessible to everyone: hardcore Mario kart fans and casual players alike, WHILE maintaining a competitive aspect and holding a skill gap as well. I’m looking forward to seeing multiplayer being released very soon, as in the menu there’s a button labeled “multiplayer” that says it’ll be added soon. Overall, this game is definitely worth your download, especially for a free app on your phone. Even though there’s a gold pass (which includes a two week free trial and is 5$/month) it doesn’t offer anything that would consider it pay2win, but supports Nintendo and also gives the player small benefits. Don’t go in expecting something like Mario kart from the switch translated straight to your phone, but it really feels at its core like a Mario kart game.
MARIO CART TOUR
by KBM SORA on 2019/09/26 16:33
This game is really fun their only a few things that need to be looked at. The first thing is this game crashes some time u expect stuff like that because it’s new and every one is trying to play so when that’s fixed that would help so we wouldn’t have to start over a race. My secound thing is the controls could be way better if they put two arrows so u can steer theirs a lot of understeer when u play this game u drift way to much or don’t turn right on sharp corners that would honestly make this game way better and more fun to race with this controls. My third thing is their are micro trans actions so if u want the best characters u do have to buy the gold pass to me it does make a huge difference it gives u things free to play players won’t have or get because it’s exclusive to the gold pass for $5.99 I mean I know their trying to get money but this isn’t the way to get it. The point of games it to earn ur stuff not buy ur way to it so if u we’re planning to get platinum Mario u can’t unless u get the gold pass sorry guys. Their also is an online mode coming in future updates I hope it’s real player real time. I want to be able to send my friends invites so we can play together in our own lobby we create not with otheir people make it 2 separate online modes pvp and friend pvp. That’s all
Has the potential to be waaaaay better
by ShawnaeN on 2019/09/25 11:41
I understand Nintendo wanted to go for the whole “play with one hand” type of thing but the game could be sooooo much better. For one I like the Wii version of mario kart a thousand times better...if its possible to create a controller for the wii on regular smart phones so that I can still play my Wii that would be nice so keep that into consideration. Anothee thing WHY IS THERE NO WIRELESS MULTIPLAYER!???!!!! I want to compete against my friends not against the computer and against some random players, thats what made mario kart, mario kart. You could play by yourself or compete against friends when needed. In reality I was being nice by giving it three stars, its not a bad game but it really could be better, the app really wont last long if you dont get the multiplayer option and then can the controls not be soooo simple because a landscape option for the phone would be ideal so that we can be in control of our speeds and even have a mobile device tilting option to steer because right now everything feels like its been figured out for us and takes away the players control over the game which is not the authetic mario kart because we chose our speed and we chose how to steer and we chose how to use items and this mobile app takes all of that away. Please please please please do better because we all know that you can.
Great game, but could be improved
by Vid lab customer on 2019/10/09 19:36
I enjoy the game greatly, it’s a fun way to kill time and the graphics are awesome to see on an iPhone and not on a Switch or Wii-U. The concept is fair and I enjoy the gameplay. However, there are some thing that should be changed in my opinion. For example, there is a daily limit on how much you can upgrade your items. And another one I would like to stress is that as you progress, each level gets increasingly difficult to rack up points, thus obtain more stars to unlock more cups. To me, that just doesn’t make sense. The average points received on a good game (considering you got 1st place, drifted, jump boosts, fought your way to 1st, etc.) you would probably get around 4 to maybe 6 thousand points. But in the later cups, 6 thousand points barely gets you three stars, while in the before cups, you’re easily getting five stars. I just don’t see how it’s possible to get ten thousand points in a single 2-lap race, when getting points is capped daily. So each item, and each character can’t be leveled to the full potential because of the max variety, and the daily caps. If these things were to be fixed or tweaked somehow, I would easily give this a five star rating. This is such a good, unique mobile game but these issues are just roadblocks for me and whoever else plays the game.
READ THIS!!!!!!!!!
by Natałie:) on 2019/10/12 14:58
I’ve always loved MARIO cart so I want to make a few suggestions for this game. First you should add more of the old tracks like the raid now one railroad one the like snow one the penguin one all those good ones along with new ones as well. Also you should add that game on the wii where you have a team and you try to pop as many balloons as possible. Also you should add more games that you can play with friends as well. All I’m saying is if you add all the stuff you could possibly add to this game it will be literally the perfect game ever. Hopefully you read this and hopefully my suggestions were helpful! I feel that stuff you add to the app you should keep on it bc making the old tours go away is kinda stupid to me bc now you can’t do those races again and i like all the courses and I think you should just keep them on there and add things to it. I think you should make a button for the different tours so you don’t have to take them off the game. I also want to say if you were to make a game that was so much fun on the wii you should make it better than the old one not worse and I feel it’s not as good as the wii one. You should also add the motorcycles like the wii
Needs improvement
by heyitzgenevieve on 2019/09/26 01:14
This game was super hyped up when it first got announced and I was excited to play it when it was originally supposed to come out over the summer. For a game that got delayed by several months, it definitely still has some issues and could use improvement. First of all, the controls are pretty horrible. In drift mode, you are practically forced to drift through the entire race because whenever you’re tapping on the screen you start to drift, which means you can’t go straight unless you’re not tapping the screen, making it extremely hard to control. On the other hand, in regular mode you can hardly make it around turns. I was excited to try out the gyro controls, only to find out that they’re even worse than the manual controls. The gyro mode is SUPER delayed and you have to turn your phone really far to get it to even move. The game as a whole is just really slow, especially when racing, which takes away the exhilarating factor of a racing game. I’m hope that they either fix the controls or just add an in-game circle pad altogether. Also, the graphics are great, but I’d assume that’s why the game is so slow, so hopefully that is sped up a bit in the future as well. As for now, the game isn’t all to entertaining considering its speed and serious lack of decent controls, but it’s Mario Kart mobile nonetheless so at least that’s a start.
Game still broken even after bug fixes 🙄
by SHENANIGANS1356 on 2019/10/04 20:17
So I’m pretty annoyed rn. I really like this game and it’s super fun but when there’s a bug in a game that totally takes away the ability to play it, it’s annoying as hell. It’s even more annoying when there’s an update for the game that addresses the bug that your game has and somehow still doesn’t fix it. I have the bug where the game becomes unplayable after I start transitioning to the main game menu after loading up the game. I load it up and it turns black to transition but it just stays black and doesn’t do anything. It sucked when it first happened but I knew they’d eventually fix it so I waited. “Luckily” a day later an update for the game rolls out dealing with the problem so I immediately download it and load up the game again. To my disappointment however, the game still had the exact same bug. It did give me the option to clear my data cache to help restart the game and prevent the game from crashing again but that didn’t work. I even went and deleted the game and redownloaded it as a last resort and still, nothing changed. I’ve tried looking online to see if there’s anything else I could do and I didn’t find anything If any developers are reading this please fix this or let me know if this is possibly having to do with something on my side of things because I’m getting really annoyed. And if anyone else knows how to fix this please let me know
Pretty good game, but..
by Darrel C. on 2019/10/01 23:58
This game was exciting the least being able to play it on your phone. It’s pretty much the same basic game it was from me being a kid, but there’s a couple issues that I find very, VERY annoying. As it comes to skill, I’d say I’m pretty good at drifting but, as it turns out from my experience, attempting to turn in such a way can get the character to stay in a turning animation, which annoys the crap out of me, I look at the top left corner of my screen as my character is STILL stuck in the turning animation, reading the words “7th place”, you kidding me right? I was just in 1st..It only gets worse...I like being in first, you’d probably be too, it’s fun to get a challenge here and there, trying to keep your place in 1st, but..you get bumped behind from the person in 2nd, all of a sudden you’re here waiting for your character to move, and it’s just staying there??? Your suddenly NOT in 1st, no, you’re in 4th, now 6th, and now you’re in last, and wait? That was the last lap too?? Okay... I have to win now, no exceptions...yess I’m in first again, there’s no stopping me this time..finally the last lap, I got this one in the bag.. oh shoot, a shells about to hit me, my character isn’t moving again! It’s literally, taking, its time.. wait what happened?? I was just in first?? No wait..I’m in last, again.. and everyone has already crossed the finish line..
Great Game

This is one of Nintendo’s best efforts on iOS. It’s a fun game and a lot of love went into making it. As other reviews have mentioned though, it’s hard to escape the feeling that it’s also a money grab. Despite your skill level, it’s impossible to collect 5 stars on the last races in each tour unless you have the right drivers, karts and gliders. Sometimes you’re lucky and you have these, but more often than not you don’t. It’s the same for the weekly ranking. I’ve worked hard to rank #1 among my opponents each week, but I don’t think I could’ve done it without having used the Gold Pass trial to get more rubies (and as luck would have it, the frenzy starting drivers). I’ve reached Tier 13 now, my trial has ended, and it seems the only way to rank #1 this time is to open up my wallet. What’s more, I just used 100 rubies in Halloween Pipe 1 (a roughly $50 value), and didn’t get any frenzy starting drivers, top karts or gliders for this week’s ranking! This is infuriating given the time I’ve invested in this game. Update: Per the weekly ranking, it seems easier to rank #1 without using the Gold Pass or having a frenzy stating driver for every race in the second Halloween Tour. I don’t know if Nintendo was listening, but I’m bumping up my rating in response.
Nintendo did it again!!
by Chi samurai on 2019/10/29 01:22
Booyah!!! I’m a huge Mario kart fan, so I was real excited when this came out! There is so many things, and when the Halloween tour came out, I was soooooo hyped that king Boo, FINALLY CAME!!!! It would be cool that you get to choose what high end thing you get if you pay for 45 rubies, but that’s just my two cents. Speaking of rubies, they are seriously hard to get, can you make it a little easier to get it? Or at least make the pipe draws cost less? It’s ok if you can’t, coins though, you can only get 300 per day and it costs around 12,000 to buy a high end from the shop. Can you make the max coins you can get at least 600?? It takes awhile to farm em, when all the cups are completed it feels like I’m waiting forever, I wish there was something else like a minigame where you are tryin to pop your opponent’s balloon. What about goombas? Mario’s most famous monster?? Or a carrage cart? That would be fun. Overall, AMAZING GAME, I RECOMMEND YOU TO PLAY INSTANTLY!!!!!!!!!! I WISH I COULD RATE HIGHER THEN FIVE 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 💯 STARS FOR THE AMAZING GAME THIS IS!!!!!
Really Nintendo?
by ShadoWarrior29 on 2019/10/13 15:47
Don’t get me wrong with the title. I really enjoy this game. The controls are smooth (after getting used to them), the throwback tracks are super fun to play on, even the characters in the game are great picks (where’s waluigi and luigi tho?!). Anyways those aren’t why i gave this game 4 stars. The only reason i don’t enjoy this game as much is because there is no skill involved whatsoever. You can be great at past mario kart entry’s and beat every single cup on 150cc, mirror, 200cc, it really doesn’t matter the amount of skill you obtain when you start the game. The only thing that will get you a 1st place in this game is really really good RNG. Now, if you don’t know what RNG means, it stands for Random Number Generator. The gist of it is, (depending on what place you are in) you get a random item from the item boxes based on a random number picked by the game. When i said there is no skill involved, that’s not an understatement. The only thing that will win you races in this game is you depending on the games RNG to give you good items, and more importantly, you’re opponents getting bad items. Nintendo, if you are reading this, please in any way, shape, or form, PLEASE make this game not luck based and make it skill based in any way you possibly can. Over and out.
Great, but with a Glaring Problem
by Elkindle20 on 2019/09/25 22:49
I have uninstalled and reinstalled my game more than three times, and while I enjoyed a good while where my problem did not happen and I was racing joyously, the game has been continuously showing me a message at startup that I must update my game to continue playing. There are two buttons below this message. The first one, which says,”How to Update” takes me to what I’d assume would be an FAQ or tutorial if it didn’t display an error message in its place. The second, aptly named,”Check Store”, takes you to - you guessed it - the App Store. Here you would expect to find an update ready to be installed, however the button usually used as the update button only says,”open”, signaling that there is indeed no update available. My friends and colleagues have also confirmed that their copies of the game are working, leading me to continue to wonder why I cannot play a game I have been excited for since it’s announcement. I cannot stress enough how amazing this game is to play and how it is truly amazing to have this caliper of a title on my phone. However, this problem puts a damper on every aspect of the fun of this game, since I cannot even access the title screen. If this problem were to be fixed, my rating would no doubt raise to five stars, but as of right now my opinion and rating of this title sits at a lowly two out of five.
How???
by Cool dude25783737363226788 on 2019/09/27 14:36
I have been playing Mario kart since the wii (I’m 16) and I’m disappointed in the people playing around me, you can tell they don’t know what Mario kart is and this is there first go around that’s fine if it’s your first Mario kart what’s not fine it the devs making everything so in your face like the start boost timing they tell you what it is in Mario kart wii I had to find that crap out on my own also the drifting control setting is cancer the only way to turn normally is to move you whole phone this is ok in other racing games where you play on landscape but you have to play portrait (as of my understanding) and the game feels so heavy and floaty like a brick trying to figure skate that the one race I tired drift on I got 8th and found my self on multiple occasions having my phone at a 90 degree angle to the side I wanted to turn making follow up turns near impossible and smart steering while being a toggle should be on at all times to make the game even remotely fun or playable. Currently I am first on kuppa cup tier one my name is Jesus if you see me know I have problems with the game but will probably keep playing because despite my problems the game runs great and I am having fun playing. Also I have no idea how the hell I ranked so high on the kuppa cup.
Great game, but wait......
by Gunmanhammer on 2019/09/30 03:40
Great graphics, sounds, and gameplay during races (a couple tweaks to allow turning and drifting without using motion controls would be nice however). As of now this game is a cash grab (I’ll get to this later), with the only “online” feature is to compete for the highest score in the one ranked cup that is opened. In this game the score is calculated based on how well you place, what karts/characters/gliders you use on a level to level basis, tricks, and item use. Other than tricks and placement in races, everything is dependent on your collection of parts and characters which give you various buffs in race, which all happen to be locked behind a loot box system that is the entire progression system. If you want to unlock or level up your characters and parts you use the pipe each costing 5 rubies, which paid for costs $2 for 3 rubies (bonus thrown in for bulk). The other option is the gold pass, this costs $5 a month, giving you a few more awards and the fastest game mode, 200cc. If you do the math that’s triple Nintendo switch online for a year that now has a Mario kart game for free, and the same amount for the huge amount of games that come with Apple’s streaming service. If this game wasn’t pay to win, then it would get 5 stars, otherwise it’s stuck where it is.
Great
by Bonkabeane on 2019/10/21 11:58
I’ve seen a lot of rants on this, one saying it was made for bots to win. But playing the real Mario kart, it wasn’t made so you could win, it was made to be a fair, fun game. This game does just that, it’s fair and fun, it’s not super easy to win but it’s not all that difficult to win either. It really is fair and fun, just like the original game, and I adore that. For this being the first version, it’s great, I’ve had no bugs while playing the game, and it’s been super fun. Of course the characters are bots, but for bots they actually function very well. They aren’t buggy and glitching out which in a lot of games they do, so that’s great! I don’t understand all this controversy I see, it’s as if everyone takes this game like a true world racing tournament. You aren’t the Daytona 500, it’s a game where you have fun. Everyone that says it’s bad because it’s difficult, a good game shouldn’t be super easy, it should be hard and you should learn to play it. Also you can mess around in the settings to adjust it to your play style, which I like. I’m not much of a mobile gamer but this is fun and stays interesting, so I’ll be playing it for a good while. Keep up the good work.
Don’t bother with the 1 star reviews
by Nutella Kid on 2019/09/28 21:01
Okay first of all, this is NOT A PAY TO WIN game. I repeat. This is NOT A PAY TO WIN game. The game DOES NOT ask you for any money nor do you need to spend anything to get further in the game. I actually respect Nintendo for making the micro-transactions pricey to discourage paying your way through the game. Those who are complaining haven’t even played for a couple days so their complaints about controls and how hard the game is shows the little effort they put in. Which isn’t much. So again no money is needed. Not even to make a Nintendo account, which only take like 5 minutes to make. So stop complaining about the small things. Second, the reason I gave it 4 stars instead 5 is because of the unplayable multiplayer. I have hope that the reason they are taking their time is because they are not just trying to make it against friends you add but other people around the world. I do have my worries though that the multiplayer will be asynchronous, meaning against AI but with multiplayer data. If that is so, then I’ll delete the game in a heartbeat because I’m tired of companies putting more thought into the money they want to make instead of making a quality multiplayer experience.
Good, but needs improvement
by MilesTheGuy on 2019/09/27 22:08
I do enjoy this game quite a bit. I’d even go as far as to say this is my favorite mobile game. But there needs to be improvement. For 1, why are the races only two laps long when the tracks are already pretty short? Mario Kart has pretty much always had three lap races and I’m sure adding one extra lap would make this all the bit better. 2, how come we got three baby characters, 3 Mario’s, 2 Peaches, and 2 Bowsers, but not Waluigi, Rosalina, Wario, and (most importantly) LUIGI!? I know the series has already had this problem, and hey, instead of Pink Gold Peach and Baby Rosalina we got the return of Diddy Kong and Pauline making her first appearance in the series. But (instead of Waluigi being cut from Mario Kart 7) Nintendo has never taken out important characters like the ones I’ve mentioned and instead have more clones and Baby Characters. And 3, the one you’ve all been waiting for, the EA like micro transactions. You have to pay $5 per month for a membership. That’s more than a Nintendo Switch membership! However, this game is still kind of fun. The controls feel tight, the tracks are fun, and the game looks surprisingly good for mobile. It just had to be bogged down by the bad stuff. Overall, I like this game, it just needs improvements to make it better.
Mario Kart’s always fun, but this one’s the worst.
by Silicon FX on 2019/09/30 23:31
Why are all of Nintendo’s mobile games post-Super Mario Run so painful to play? You just want to play the game and have fun, but the game annoys you into wasting your money on what’s ultimately a garbage product. You just want to play as Mario, but you have to do this dumb gambling garbage that’s OUTLAWED IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES. Gee, I wonder why? You look at other games on the market and think “Sheesh, this game is not player friendly”, then you look at this game and wish you were playing something else instead. It’s the little things about this game that annoy me most, such as the way the music was sped up—done in such a way to which the pitch increases along with the speed, the horrendously high scores you need to get in order to get 5 stars in what’s ultimately a luck-based match, etc on top of etc. Online, TRUE online is the one thing that could’ve saved this game, and it’s coming, but why isn’t it just out now? Nintendo’s image isn’t looking too good. They were the good guys, the wholesome company. Now, the opposite is true. From the way they handled joycon drifting, to their mobile endeavors, this just isn’t right. It’s not the Nintendo I grew up with. This is EA levels of shady and detestable. If someone from Nintendo actual reads this message, GET SOME HELP. If any consumers are reading this, don’t waste your valuable time on this game. Play a legitimate Mario Kart, not this cheap knockoff.
Great game not executed well
by OhGab on 2019/11/09 00:42
I play this game EVERYDAY literally the only game that was respectable and honorable enough to be on my tablet and I'm dissapointed 😫. Nintendo had A GREAT MONEY Making game but idk if it's really making money lol why do I have to pay 2$ for 3 rubies #NotGoneHappen also after playing on the two week trial I was this close 👌🏽 to buying it until it said every month #NotGoneHappenAgain and I've never purchased ANYTHING in a game EVER... I say that to say this the prices are crackish and I'm sad because I love playing at 200cc!!! But playing at 200cc and having to go back to 150cc suuuuuuucks 😩 I was this close 👌🏽 to un-installing this game BUT I'm willing to give Nintendo a chance. I grew up on Mario Karts so I have high expectations for the 2019 version. Please put some respect on this game, give us an option to be able to play at 200cc when we reach a certain player level or have to purchase it with the rubies it takes a miracle to get, 5$ for 2 months gold pass, and please switch up the pipe prices because they are kind of crackish prizes too. Minor things! Oh and multilayer come on I thought this would have been on the game from the jump Fun Run even had that option. Hopefully this helps maybe it won't but hopefully something #Gonehappen. Signed, A Mario Kart addict 😁🤪
Off to an incredible start.
by J.Dia on 2019/09/26 02:43
Keeping in mind that it literally JUST came out and isn’t going to start off perfect, I think it’s off to a beautiful start. I have been waiting for Mario Kart to come out on IOS for a long time, and although some people have had their issues with it so far, I’m looking past simple things such as “the controls bother me” or “it should be in landscape rather than portrait” because those are simple things that can be fixed easily with a few updates as well as just getting used to the game being on a phone rather than a console. The overall game, however, with the characters, carts, coins, gliders, etc. is nothing short of a masterpiece and brings back a familiar wave of nostalgia not from the original Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo, but more so the Mario Kart on the Wii that I personally grew up with. So far (apart from the daily limitations on upgrades and points which I’m not necessarily a fan of) I am absolutely in love with everything about this game and am nothing short of excited to see the future of it, specifically in regards to the future multiplayer mode. To the creators: Thank you, and keep up the good work.
Lots of Fun, Only a few issues
by Osmodious1 on 2019/10/07 10:28
Gonna keep it short. This game is lots of fun. But the controls are a bit janky.. and I don’t think you need the gold pass to have fun.. I didn’t even know this was coming out and I saw all the videos ranting about it before I even played it. I figured I’d give it a try thinking Corporate Commander was sure to have his hands on this one but I found out that it’s not really like that. Yes, locking the 200 cc mode behind the gold pass is a bit much but I personally normally play on 150 cc so this doesn’t affect me much. Also, just from the daily log in bonuses, playing the ranked mode, and completing challenges I’ve gotten enough Rubies or whatever they’re called, to do plenty of summons in game and I may have just gotten lucky but I’ve gotten pretty good pulls just off of those. Another thing people complain about is them basically “charging money for Mario” but after just a few short days of playing a few minutes here and their, you know like, on the toilet, dosing off to bed, in the waiting room, I had enough in game currency to just buy Mario off of the store. Anyway, this wasn’t exactly a short review. But I enjoy the game. It just has a few problems it needs to Iron out.
Amazing but some nostalgia issues
by huneybea on 2019/09/27 18:14
I think the way the put it on mobile is absolutely amazing. However... some new characters and karts were added and that’s always fun. But there’s not as many secret passages, most players have auto steering on, and there’s not as many maps. Now hold on, so far I’ve passed 12 cups. With four levels per cup. So there’s 48 levels... but it’s the same few levels with slight variations. AND there’s no rainbow road yet. I would be more than happy if the producers decided to add a casual gameplay with some of the old maps from 3ds, wii, etc. Also multiplayer isn’t out yet. Which is a big bummer. I am still curious as to when that’s going to be added. “Future update” but doesn’t say when. It’s still a fun game nonetheless. It’s just way different compared to classic Mario kart. You need to unlock characters, karts, gliders, and maps. Which is okay but it takes too long to get those things and the game becomes boring after you can’t unlock anything more for the day. Now this is without me paying extra for rubies or coins. I’m sure if you purchased those things your time would be more fun for a short while.
Hello Mario cart
by boy575 on 2019/11/10 08:35
I love this game tbh, I play everyday max my exp gain and my coin gain every time, but the game needs more you see my family plays too and they are getting bored because there’s not enough rewards to help them out. They are new and I want to help them but u guys just made it even harder for them with the all the tours needing to do 5000 points when they don’t even have anything to help them out. Plus for us loyal players we are getting the same rewards like the ultra rare character (or legendary character) was the same as the first tour really made me mad. I got gold for items that I don’t have, not for items that we all have... all I’m asking is for u guys to give us hope that something big is coming a light for me to keep playing this game because after two or three more tours I might stop playing and never look back because it seems that all the things everyone is saying is that all u guys just want money... please help me believe that, that’s not true. Help me believe that Nintendo wants loyal fans instead of money. For all the people that are thinking of playing I would say try it out this game is great but it will be hard for you to pick it up. And with that I say good luck.
Mario kart tour has many problems
by Vincentw12345 on 2019/10/11 21:02
I’ll start simple. Paywalls, this game is not just an app, it’s a filthy cash grab that blocks every necessity behind a paywall. Sure you can play the game for free but as a Nintendo fan my whole life I don’t think this is what they SHOULD be doing. I’m all for calling out a company when they really need and now is definitely a good time too. The only reason this game is popular now is because everyone has a phone and no one wants to waste money on a system just to play Mariokart on it. Online play isn’t even online play, it just randomly generates names and puts you up against them. And I love the Mario franchise and would love to see it expanded even more than it is now, but this game didn’t do that for me. Also, Luigi isn’t playable yet(this might be outdated in a couple updates but I still wanted to mention it)? The starting roster has FOUR Marios, it has three peaches and two bowsers, six characters that could’ve been used on Luigi or any other character that hasn’t had a Mariokart debut yet. And finally, I want to mention that giving Nintendo support on this game is giving them reason to make more of these games where everything is blocked via paywalls and that is not how I would expect Nintendo to do things with a Mariokart game on the phone, though dr Mario did the same exact thing and Mario run was average. So Mario kart tour was a disappointment.
DONT READ THIS REVIEW
by Jared Hater on 2019/11/26 02:23
Ok. So at first, I wasn’t that amused and thought that it was just another racing game, or whatever. So for the first few days, I didn’t really play. But, one of my friends begged me to play with her, so I did. After playing more and more, I have come to LOVE Mario kart. It is now my new favorite game and since then, I have unlocked every single cup and have gotten 5 stars on most of them. I am counting down the days until the next store and when multiplayer comes out!! Thank you guys— also I’m now addicted;) Okay so I have just purchased the gold pass and I honestly wish I had purchased it sooner. The tour gifts for the gold pass are so much better, and now I am also able to accumulate way more gems to use the pipe! Each tour gets better and better and I am always just so excited to see the new tours comes out. ****I feel like the last gift should be something really really exciting. Because once I get that final last tour gift, I look at the future prizes and don’t see anything super compelling so it doesn’t force me into striving for those extra stars to make me play the game more. Just a thought!
The steering is horrible
by Collin WM on 2019/09/26 03:55
To start the game looks stunning and from the limited time I have played it seems to run fine on my 8plus however as soon as I hoped on the game and started to race I could instantly tell the steering mechanics were awful. There were numerous times when I would be pulling my thumb to right just to have my character not respond. I’m not sure if it’s a game issue or if I’m doing something wrong but the controls are not intuitive what so ever. Even after I turned on the tilt controls I still had trouble orienting my character the right way. The controls almost seem as if they were purposely made bad for some reason. I think they might be better if there was a button you could press with your other thumb to drift instead of the game just doing it automatically as it causes you to lose control consistently. Also I’m a bit lost as to why they decided to put the game in portrait mode instead of landscape, the choice just seems odd to me as I think that having the game in landscape would allow for much more such as an actually steering wheel, brakes and gas which would be a nice addition. Over I see there is potential in the game I’m just dumbfounded that this is the control scheme they decided to go with. Overall the game could be great they just need to fix the steering.
Strange nuances of a complete game
by Oman531 on 2019/09/27 04:59
I remember buying the original Mario Kart for the wii when it came out over a decade ago. It was my favorite game for several years and still ranks in my top ten to this day. Unfortunately, this game makes me feel like I’m playing a pirated version of that one. I understand that the mobile experience will never be the same, but the mechanics of the game, as well as the currency system, make it much less enjoyable than it could be. The major problem I have is that the point system is disproportionately luck based, whether it’s RNG determining whether you get hit with 5 shells in a row or not, or it’s the collection system that doesn’t give you the item and point advantage that you essentially need to get 5 stars, unless you buy more gems to have more options, of course. I could see how this game is designed to encourage the player to come back to previous cups after collecting more characters, but that seems pointless. The collection system and ruby micro-transactions borderline pay to win gameplay. The races themselves create the odd illusion that you’re playing against real people by assigning random usernames to AIs. Overall, the game is fun, but doesn’t reward the player for skill nearly as much as it should, which makes it frustrating and sometimes not worth it to play.
Disappointing
by AnubisElite on 2019/10/10 14:55
I will say that the game can be really fun. The graphics are nice, though they are a serious drain on my battery. And it has all the fun aspects of Mario Kart. Except, of course, for the multiplayer aspect. None of the people you race are your friends or others online. So it’s always just AI that you are up against. Not as fun. The biggest drawback is, your scores don’t reflect your actual performance so much as the unit, car and glider you use. The problem with this is, it’s all reliant upon a gatcha system. Between the NY and the beginning of the Tokyo tours I think I have done 5 of the multi summons. In those summons I have only received one high end driver, and to my extreme disappointment it was a copy of the Metal Mario I got as a reward from the two week free subscription. So not only are e drop rates awful, there’s nothing to help elevate your chances of getting a unit or car or glider that you want. Which brings me to the subscription. Nintendo wants us to pay $5 every month, the same as an Apple Arcade price, just for this one game? I don’t think so. I got the two week free part for the rewards and then cancelled it. That’s the other thing, if you want the best rewards from the races you need this subscription. This is an awful cash grab with no way to actually enjoy it with your friends, the way Mario Kart is supposed to be. I expected more from Nintendo.
Few Key Features Missing
by Avise22 on 2019/10/17 20:11
Overall this is a great game and I enjoy playing it. I look forward to new cups and tours and enjoy the challenges that come with them. That being said, I still think there are two key features this app is missing: 1) Why is there no storage/ inventory to view all the items I currently have? If I want to see how many item boxes I have, I need to start a race. If I want to see how many quick tickets I have, I need to click on a cup under construction (which isn’t possible if you have all of them unlocked). An inventory or storage tab would be a simple fix to this problem. 2) (FIXED) Why are the badges earned from the first tour no longer available to use for display? Unless you kept a badge from a preceding tour as your displayed badge, you no longer have access to them. This is really unfortunate as I really liked a badge from the first tour that I simply don’t have access to anymore even though I earned it by completing the challenge. This could also be fixed by possibly putting it in the inventory/ storage tab. Or even making a “Badges” tab where players can scroll through all the Badges they’ve earned and build their collection.
They pulled it off
by DopeHomie on 2019/09/25 11:30
Only Nintendo could find a way to make a vertical, touch screen kart racer fun, challenging and intuitive. I’ve played every console iteration since SNES Mario Kart, and this finds a way to play true to the rest of the series. While it took a minute to pick up on and adapt to the new controls, I quickly got back in the familiar rhythm and flow that fans know so well. If your experienced with the console games like myself, do yourself a favor and turn on “gyro controls” right away in settings. It makes all the difference in the world, especially if you are using drift mode. I had to figure this out through frustrations on minor turns, and difficulty aiming for coins. As far as price point for in app purchases, they seem a bit steep from what I’ve seen so far, $20 racer packs, high rupee cost (the currency to unlock racers) and the $5 monthly subscription service which only gives you the opportunity to win rare gold items, as well as 200cc mode. However in Nintendo’s defense, the game is perfectly playable without any IAPs. It really feels like Nintendo put the time and development into this that it deserves.
Great but ......

I have played this game I would love to give it 5 stars but I have gotten error messages and issues with the game will be stated in this review. 1 after finishing a race I have gotten “error has occurred “ and it causes me to not see the points and what you know happens after a race . 2 the game will open and have a three option button game frequently asked questions , support, If the game won’t start. but the game didn’t crash and nothing was wrong! 3 I have the game on two different devices and I got the gold pass but it was confusing I bought the pass on one device and it would just continue over because it’s the same exact account and I after getting on one device open it on the other and it says that since the pass was bought on one device it can’t be used on the device , i.e my second device . I would like to have some answers to the issues other than that game is great. One thing I would love to see come to the game is a better chance to unlock drivers through maybe missions/ challenges or just simply upping the chances or more than one pipe /roll of chance of drivers/karts/gliders . Would love to see these in the future.
The people you play against are disguised as real players. Disappointed.

The fact that they really made the AI look like real people is stupid. At least let us know we are going against bots and name them by the character name instead of fooling people into believing they are having real races with real people. If the game was already online I would be more proud of the game but so far I am not. I personally like the Rubies and the Gold because it is a mobile game and people need something to strive for in game, but for kids this is NOT a good game to be playing. But still, on the other hand, I love Mario Cart and I have been playing since I was a baby, so I am definitely still going to play it. Everything in the game is as it should be, there are levels from all different versions of the game and even some updated versions of older levels. The game looks beautiful and its is easy to learn. What I hope to see in the future is a wide screen mode, different controls to where you can use a joy stick, or to be able to touch the screen on different sides to go left and right and then continue to slide the screen to drift, which would be easier than the controls now. They are weird at first but when u get used to it, its pretty fun.
Amazing but ruined

Such a great game and once you get used to the controls is actually tons of fun. The way the cups are set up to it’s like you never beat it, it just keeps adding levels for you. And so many characters carts and gliders to collect. But here’s where it got ruined; micro transactions. I understand in today’s day and age we need mtx or the games can’t continue and won’t make their money. But there’s a difference between pay to play and pay to win. In the beginning you get 5 stars on everything regardless of your gear. Then it gets harder but with the gear you roll you should have a decent chance on each track for 5 stars. Then it gets harder. Currently I’m at the point where I can get first in every race but only get 2 stars. Basically I’m at a point where I can move on to the next cup because I don’t have enough stars but I got FIRST in EVERY race.. so I’m at a point where I’m either forced to buy better gear for more bonus points to get more stars or just not play the game/continuously redo races I already won just for giggles. You can do challenges for rubies and stars but I’ve done most of them already. They truly did well on this game but just ruined it. I can’t even watch adds for stars or rubies? like come on give us an option to move on besides paying you money.. I’m stuck and can’t continue without $$$
Great game but needs some improvements
by Hlywood33 on 2019/09/30 19:40
Ok so don’t get me wrong, I love this game. When I heard that Nintendo was releasing Mario kart to mobile devices I was stoked! So let’s get into the issues. First off, the multiplayer aspect. I was honestly looking forward to multiplayer when I got the game. But I was surprised that it wasn’t released yet since the game was delayed a bit ago. I would like to think that multiplayer would be released by now but it isn’t. Another thing is the fact that we have to wait a certain amount of time for tours to be unlocked. I just find that kinda annoying because as of right now I can’t play any new tours because the next tour has two days until it’s accessible to be played. I understand that you guys are doing your best but I mean the game was delayed by a few months and in that time stamp I would think at least multiplayer would be released. I just hope that it’s released soon. Other than the current issues I love the game. This really brings a new aspect to mobile games and I look forward to the near future of this game. And maybe you guys could look into releasing some other Nintendo related games. Hope this review gets a reply.
A truly fun game

For a day one experience I personally do enjoy the game as it is at the moment. For my 6s, the game runs smoothly and I encounter very little to no lag while playing. The gameplay is a unique blend of the Mario Kart formula with a spin on it. The spin is the customizable karts and characters being locked by a pay wall. Now this would be a major problem if the majorly effected gameplay but at this current time it can make getting stars a bit easier. How it works is certain characters, karts, and gliders give certain boosts to your game. I have made it past the daisy cup and have collected all stars, meaning it is possible and not super challenging to obtain these stars. The “battle pass” is an ok addition which gives some extra content. For five dollars a month it is the only reasonable piece of in app purchase. However the gems are STUPID expensive. When you have to pay roughly 25 dollars for a multi you will not run into pay to win players at all due to these steep prices. My overall experience with this game has been a blast and I personally can’t wait for further updates in the game and it is definitely worth your time because the entry fee to the game is FREE!
Nostalgia to an Extent
by Anonymoist on 2019/09/26 00:25
I love the fact they made Mario Kart for iOS. However, there is no online multiplayer (yet). They claim to be adding online multiplayer racing in a later version but that’s what I initially thought I was downloading. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game, but they better introduce that soon to keep the game alive. With how the “storyline” goes, it makes you stop naturally progressing and wait for “tracks to be built.” Kind of annoying so far but that’s kinda my point with the online multiplayer aspect. You won’t need to stall players from beating the game in 4 hours with online multiplayer activities, games, and tournaments. The microtransactions hopefully will stay under control. They’re equalized by being able to earn the purchaseable content through ranking up. As soon as that changes, this game will plummet. But that’s everything I can find wrong with this game at the moment. This game is a flash back to the past and is just as amazing. Just like every game starting out, it’s gonna have some bugs and the devs are gonna need to see reviews from its player-base, but this game has potential to be something amazing for this next generation to enjoy just as much as mine did!!
Game crashes instead of giving rewards and customer service calls you a liar
by Mobleyyyyyyyy on 2019/10/28 06:06
Now on my third issue where the game has crashed on completion of a task causing the reward to not be given was rudely told by customer service that i was pretty much lying about 3 rubies when i told them i had screenshots of proof that it wasnt awarded they told me they went through my game data and was able to see the completion and the reward given and when i counted all awarded rubies and those spent already the variant was 3 rubies meaning i was never awarded them. Customer service again didnt care when i completed a race given me the flatten three racers in a single race where they completely ignored me after i said they should do as they claimed before and check my game data on my phone to see and i found my customer service link downed for exactly 24hrs after with no response i asked then to cancel my paid subscription if they choose to not respond and be so rude to me over 3rubies then against over 2stars which is literally such small amounts if not the smallest amount compared to their transactions to fix fix my issue wouldve cost them $1.99 when i pay $5 a month so they decided that i wasnt worth fixing the issue and now im on a third issue where im not even gonna try and get it fixed ive cancels paid subscription and deleted game
Fun but many problems
by Deadpool123654 on 2019/09/30 15:09
Gold pass costs to much money for little to no value. The only thing you’re getting is 200cc, bonus challenges and items but it quickly runs out if you play daily and finish everything fast. The limit towards how many points you can get from races to upgrade your cars and characters is ridiculous. Just don’t have that, why is it there in the first place? It finishes in no more than 10 races which can be finished in less that 15 minutes. That’s terribly low and boring. You play afterwards for no reward and have nothing to look forward to other than try to 5 star all the races. Some of them are either extremely easy or extremely difficult. You need to have legendary characters and karts to get all the stars but that’s impossible to begin with because the chances of you unlocking one of those characters or items are so low. Let alone they need to have a bunch of points to even come close to 4 stars. But how can you do that with a low point limit? Overall it’s a very fun game but this decisions make the game extremely boring in a one hour play time. If these things were removed or fixed for the better, this game would easily be 5 stars
Game has a glitch
by Ivsosa on 2019/10/27 06:37
I am absolutely obsessed with This game I had been waiting years for this to be available via phone. Now that it is available, one of the concerns is why won’t the game allow me to stead off Road and use ramps that are outside the actual road. I’ve attempted many times to use them and it seems like there is a wall I hit and I end up driving sideways onto this invisible wall that prevents me from using off road ramps. The second thing I would like is to be able to play with the friends I add. One of the challenges is to have 3 friends but I find it useless if we can’t even play live with them or speak to them I feel like it’s only to help advertise. Third it would be amazing if we could find a different way to add friends in general because other than that I have to ask everyone if they play which is a bit awkward. The gold pass as well isn’t so much beneficial so charging $5 monthly is a bit of a reach I would of hoped it gave you a higher chance rate for player when you shot the canon but it doesn’t it gives you repeated players.
Disappointing Microtransaction/Subscription Model
by fiwbskfj on 2019/10/11 20:18
If Mario Run was supposed to be Nintendo’s experiment in upending the terrible model for mobile gaming, it must have failed. Although Mario Run is vastly superior to Mario Kart Tour, it probably will not make as much money. It is unfortunate that Nintendo is choosing to abandon its one-game-long push to change mobile gaming for the better, because Tour is just as unpleasant to play as any of the microtransaction-ridden dumpsters crowding the App Store. It’s not any better or even different from knockoffs like Angry Birds Racing or Sonic Racing. Come on, this was supposed to be Mario Kart! This one was supposed to be better! Grinding through the game without purchasing coins or purchasing g a subscription (Apple Arcade costs the same per month for hundreds of games, and even that’s still not a good idea) is a slog. Even if you get first place, you may end up without a high score if you didn’t buy the right racer/kart first. Coins come about a dozen per race, so good luck saving up the thousands necessary to get new racers and karts without buying into the awful microtransaction ecosystem. This game is for the 5% of people who will frequently spend real-world money to buy imaginary coins. This game is not for the 95% of us who just want to play a game. Really disappointing.
