I think its been one of the best Mario Karts since Mario Kart 64. The wheel takes time to get used to since its a floating wheel. At least there is online play to make you play more, instead of just getting through the game and thats it.
I saw at Walmart (or Best Buy) the other day a wheel that can be suction cupped to the desk, coffee table or whatever else may be in front of you; locking the wheel in a more stable position. For me I don't mind the floating wheel because it allows me to LEAN BACK and chillaxe! LOL!
I love the game...it is a lot of fun and my daughter loves connecting to my cousin and they do battles or race all the time.
