Forums - Nintendo Discussion - My finally complete MK8 experience : 5,9/10 - Don't forget your powerslide

Moo Moo Meadows - looking great, can drive this with my eyes closed hasn't changed a bit. easy track
Mario circuit - some fine ass corners for chaining powerslides, avoid the oil. my favourite out of the shell cup
Cheep Cheep beach - watch out for them obstacles, here they can muck up your slides pretty badly
Toads turnpike - bit of a letdown, very very easy compared to the orginal. the driving boost cars are great, my first real encounter with anti grav doesn't seem to add much, is it even faster? I doubt it

Dry Dry desert - I should have known but failed miserably and got sucked in the quicksand...  my suprise  was the very quick recovery and fell into another suprise in the next part with the water! this track got worked on so much not sure if i like it better then the orginal.
Donut plains - technical and a watery suprise, i love this track!
Royal raceway - I knew the glivers would be awesome here and indeed they were. -NOTE not track related: red shells can hit you during your flight... LAME when you are on the receiving end  END NOTE- The Corners are again epic for chaining boosts
DK jungle - Didn't really leave an impressing, probably because i was hoping for the n64 track, looked great on the other hand tho!

Wario Stadium - again not the n64 version, but this time im pleasantly suprised, the cornering on the new iron bit is fun and such is the suprise when encountering more watery bits. stay out of the dark mud
Sherbet land - That tunnel is all i really wanna say slide away, exact copy of the gamecube version adding a lower section, doesn't seem faster.
Music park - stay out of the light, dont get flattened by the fatties, some very nice and long corners where you can make or break your race.
Yoshi valley - left, right, left ... avoid the egg

Tick-Tock clock - a long glide, quite some high differences and dont get hit by the clocks. together with mario circuit one of my favourites
Piranha plant slide - the inverted glide upwards, some technical bits i like this track top 3!
Grumble vulcano - I loved grumble vulcano so i'm happy it didn't change much, watch out for the missing parts in the last 2 rounds:D
Rainbow road - honestly Nintendo out of all the "n64" you pick this one... use the wave for them tricks, enjoy the scenery!

This is based on 150cc 4 player splitscreen, ty!

Oh, that's what this is about! Gotta be more clear with your thread titles man!
Anywho's I love pretty much all the retro tracks, except Dry Dry Desert! >.>

I think that's sarcasm, because most of what you said was very positive.

OT: I really enjoy the retro track selection. I'm thrilled that Yoshi Valley returned and it looks as great as ever! The only ones I don't enjoy are most of the Shell Cup courses, but that's pretty typical. What isn't is that I at least moderately enjoy every single Banana, Leaf, and Lightning track! It's the best!

Final update

out of the 12 new tracks i didn't discuss yet. im just gonna point out those that are important

Rainbow road - nintendo blew it, terrible for rainbow road standards, waaaay to easy. lots of room to powerslide, still my main dissapointment with this game in general.

Mario Kart 8 verdict:

New tracks, 16 as usual, out of which 7 are an absolute joy
old tracks, 16 out of which 12 are an absolute joy

rating 19 out of 32, based on a ten point scale thats a 5,9 purely based on tracks,

 and i'm not even deducting points for have two absolute terrible rainbow roads
