Mario Kart 7 (Nintendo) 

Available on Nintendo 3DS


Mario Kart has been around since the Super Nintendo days, hasn’t changed too much over the years. This iteration---the first in 3D---adds a few things to a tried and true formula. Karts can now soar through the air or submerge underwater, opening up new possibilities for shortcuts around the tracks. Some new items have been added, like the Super Lead (which gives your kart a Tanooki tail as seen in Super Mario Bros. 3) and the Fire Flower allowing you to hurl fireballs at opponents. What hasn’t changed is the sense of randomness and fun that has been a staple of the series since the beginning. With 32 tracks, 16 new and 16 classics, you can get lost for hours. It also brings over the great online multiplayer suite found in Mario Kart Wii so you can try out your skills on real opponents, there is surprisingly little lag online and racing against other humans only adds to the craziness.
