My experience with Super Mario Kart 7

GameFEST in Birmingham was amazing. And with that being said, so was Super Mario Kart 7!

At this booth, they only allowed the players to play 3 circuits which were definitely not enough but enough to talk about.

This game is a new level from the last Mario kart 7. In the beginning, the player gets to choose big or small wheels, change the frame of the kart and the new glider! During the race, you begin driving and everything is more or less the same however, when the kart lifts from the ground, a glider appears on top of the kart and it allows you to glide in the air. Using up and down, you can either dive back to the ground or stay in the air for as long as you can. Also, you can collect coins which I’m not too sure what that is about yet but I’m assuming it is exactly the same as what it does for the SNES version. In addition, you get to drive underwater with propellers that pop out!

Amazing game and I do wish the demo at the booth gave us more to play. I enjoyed this game so much, I had to play through the demo TWICE!

A game definitely to buy on the day of release (December).

My experience with Super Mario Land 3D

At the GameFEST, hosted a few weeks ago at Birmingham, one of the games that was on top of my list was seeing Mario on the 3D platform, Nintendo 3DS.

This version of Mario was a mixture of ‘New Super Mario Bros’ and ‘Super Mario 64’ with the one feature from the classic ‘Super Mario Bros 3’ on the NES.

GameFEST gave me 4 options to play and luckily, I got to play all of them. The visuals are done very well. The gameplay, especially when the 3D is turned on, was an unforgettable experience…

The racoon suit was great to play with but nothing new; just the Mario being able to stay in the air for those extra seconds and whacking enemies with it makes it all worth a while.

At the end of the day, the game is definitely great for those who haven’t played a Mario game EVER however, people who have played and followed the Mario series, don’t expect a major change still a game on top of my list though!

Overall, great game and will get it on the day of release (November 13th).
