@Zyrac: Yeah, the Grand Prix's didn't give me any trouble at all. I agree!

Yea, getting at least 1 star on the GPs in 200cc isn't all that tough. I had a few resets, but overall it didn't take me long. Even though you have to learn how to brake drift appropriately, the AI still rubberbands horrendously and will "wait" for you to catch up even at 200cc. Even if you find yourself near the back of the pack on the last lap, all you need is one or two good item drops and you're back in the lead as long as you can drive somewhat consistently (not fly off the stage on every turn lol).

I'm struggling to find the motivation to go through all the tracks again in single player.I've always found the single player in Mario Kart a chore and it's the only thing that frustrates me about the series.Why can't it be more like Sonic Transformed where you have multiple types of challenges and the computer actually gives you a decent race where mistakes are punished.I've played 3 GP's so far in 150cc and every single race I was in front from start to finish except for a few seconds once or twice each when I was hit with a blue shell.

@OorWullie There's actually no real reason to play through 150cc GP. You only need to do Mirror and 200cc for the gold kart and Gold Mario respectively.

And yeah, it pales in comparison to multiplayer... but at least it's not as cheap as some of the earlier games.

Available for online play around 7-10PM UK time most weekdays, whenever on weekends.

I love playing through the GPs, and at 150cc I still find the AI competitive enough that if luck doesn't go my way items-wise, then I'm in a for a butt-clenching race for the line if I want my 3 stars.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

@gcunit Yeah, I kinda feel the same - I didn't have too much difficulty getting ★★★ ratings when I ran through 50cc and 100cc - but 150cc/Mirror turned things up a notch...I managed to get min. ★ on each, but it wasn't a walk in the park by any means! ..it was a while ago when I did the cups though - with all of the hours that I've put in to online multiplayer since, I'd be interested to see how much I've improved and whether or not I've surpassed that particular 'difficulty threshold' - and I'm yet to be brave enough (or motivated enough tbh) to try 200cc cups...maybe I should, because I'm still hilariously bad whenever a 200cc track comes up online!

@Zyrac The alternate title screens. To unlock everything you need to do 150cc, Mirror and 200cc.

I like that getting a certain rank in 150cc gives you that rank for 50cc, 100cc and 150cc as 50cc and 100cc are way too slow.

@NaviAndMii: Yeah! All the races and battles were really fun! Some were really close; you're really good at the game, too!! And love the picture of Team NL dominating the competition! I'm sure you can do the 200cc cups, just remember the brake button! XD

@Blue_Blur Oh yeah! The racing lobby we were in was really, really close - matched us with some good competition! ..didn't stop Team NL from coming out on top though! Hehe!

On the fence about this game. I have Mario Kart 8 and all its DLC, but I did have a lot of fun playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at my cousin's house. Plus I can play it online with him if I buy it.

I wouldn't recommend it. Bought it day one after playing it a lot on the Wii U and now I just played more than 5 hours. Splatoon 2 and other games on the Switch take all my time (e.g. Blaster Master Zero, Gunvolt etc.) The Battle Modus is great but doesn't really justify a second purchase. New tracks on the other hand would be awesome but I hope that they are working on Mario Kart 9 right now.

@NinROCK3T Any patch notes yet?

EDIT: Ah, it's just this apparently - "Corrected an issue that prolonged the time to return to the lobby after races near the start and end times of online tournaments." ..#stability

@LuigiTheGreenFire
Same tracks, obviously. But then you have new things in pretty much everything else. A few new characters, new tier of drift boost, 2-item holding, proper battle mode, small (yet cool) visual effects and improvements, and various small balance changes like the removal of fire hopping and a slightly different unlock system/progression.

Decision is ultimately yours, but I don't regret the purchase, anecdotally. I've almost logged as many hours on Deluxe as I had on the Wii U version.

...don't forget the HD Rumble!

I jest, but it is actually worth having IMO.

I just picked up the game last week. Could I please get some help on a few things.

1. What are the 3 new settings you can toggle when setting up your kart? They were not present in Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U.

2. Can you cycle back and forth with your weapons? If so, how?

That's it, and I apologize in advance if this question has already been asked.
