Crashes on launch 1/5
The game works fine on my iPad. On my SE however the game launches, after a few seconds it crashes!
Mario kart for the phone I am loving more than On The game systems!
Incredibly happy Nintendo Decided to make mario kart for Phone & Ipad.
Been obsessed with it since it came out.
They did very good with all the tech specs too! 🤓
This game still needs work. 2/5
This game has gotten better in some regards but it still needs to fix the core of what it’s trying to do. The point system is kinda flawed since getting first place doesn’t guarantee you get all stars. To get the highest scores you need to hold a combo, which is mostly dictated by having the highest tier karts and gliders- and of course, to get the good stuff you definitely need to pay. The point system is weird because you’re trying to get points through combos, but none of the other racers are, their goal is to get first and they’ll break your combo doing it.
It seems obvious that a freemium would reward people who pay more as opposed to f2p players who save over time, but the game doesn’t even reward you with many rubies to begin with. I can’t do 2 10 pulls without worrying that I’ll be spending too much and won’t have enough for future content. This is a problem because as I stated before, you need karts/gliders to score well, it makes the game have a heavy pay to win feel. Other Nintendo mobile games have been way more generous like Dragalia Lost and Fire Emblem: Heroes.
It’s not all bad though, this is a very pretty game. If you want Mario character alts, this is where you’ll find them. At least there’s no stamina system, although there’s a limit if you want to grind exp/coins.
The developers are still tweaking things, but I want this to be a reminder that they’re far from done. Other gripes are no pausing, making most rubies come from the weekly cup in which if you’re not good enough, you simply get none (and that can happen for weeks), and the repetitive courses, although the variants are well done. Less greed will obviously give free to play players a better chance, but it will also improve the overall experience.
Multiplayer being delayed 3/5
By U kno who2
Can you guys stop milking these updates and add multiplayer already im tired of all these tours you keep adding instead of working on the feature that everyone downloaded this game in the first place for which is pvp. Nobody cares about these grindy store add ons that make it pay to win if you have every good player to get 3 power ups on every map. Just add mp please so this game can get the 5 star it deserves and everyone can start enjoying this game before it dies out seems like just a let down at this point nothing but hype.
Support code 805 3619 5/5
Trying to do the latest update and I can’t get it completed. I keep getting a communication error with support code 805 3619. This has been going on for 2 days now.
5 stars will be deserved when 4/5
By Multiplayer PLZ😁
I can’t wait to play with my friends and family on this I know it’s going to take a while to calibrate everyone’s phone to a real-time standard. But when that happens I’m going to be handing out a lot of L’s for sure lol great start by the way I like how the drifting aspect is still the same
I love this game and now I can’t play. After this recent update it crashes every time I start a race! Really pisses me off.
Still no multiplayer!! 2/5
By Prime kev
what’s the point in adding a multiplayer if you have to pay in order to play how are we supposed to have fun on the game and with our friends if we have to pay for the gold pass.
Fun but crashes like crazy. And every time it crashes, it takes away some of my accomplishments.
The best game on earth!!! 5/5
Vevery night i get on the game to play
Pipe firing 3/5
Please make pipe firing 1 ruby not 5 .... thank you ... rubies are hard to get and when I use the pipe firing I get junk rewards ....
Fun game to play! 4/5
I really enjoy playing this game other than the fact rubies are just so hard to get and a little overpriced. I’m also just waiting on the multiplayer to come in so I can play with friends. Other than that I recommend :)
Great Game 4/5
This is one of Nintendo’s best efforts on iOS. It’s a fun game and a lot of love went into making it. As other reviews have mentioned though, it’s hard to escape the feeling that it’s also a money grab. Despite your skill level, it’s impossible to collect 5 stars on the last races in each tour unless you have the right drivers, karts and gliders. Sometimes you’re lucky and you have these, but more often than not you don’t.
It’s the same for the weekly ranking. I’ve worked hard to rank #1 among my opponents each week, but I don’t think I could’ve done it without having used the Gold Pass trial to get more rubies (and as luck would have it, the frenzy starting drivers). I’ve reached Tier 13 now, my trial has ended, and it seems the only way to rank #1 this time is to open up my wallet. What’s more, I just used 100 rubies in Halloween Pipe 1 (a roughly $50 value), and didn’t get any frenzy starting drivers, top karts or gliders for this week’s ranking! This is infuriating given the time I’ve invested in this game.
Update: Per the weekly ranking, it seems easier to rank #1 without using the Gold Pass or having a frenzy stating driver for every race in the second Halloween Tour. I don’t know if Nintendo was listening, but I’m bumping up my rating in response.
Update: This game just starts to feel like work after a while. It desperately needs new modes, some tweaks to the weekly formula and real multiplayer.
Turning more into Pay to allay 3/5
By Pie Rocks!!!
At first the game was good at making sure players could get good items wether they paid or not as long as they played enough, but as time has gone on it’s turned to a full on pay to play because now it’s become much harder to get rubies and even point boosts in the game. At higher levels I think there should be a small ruby bonuses at each level instead on 5 every five levels. I give the game a 3.5/5 because it is entertaining. Multiplayer would be great as well.
Add races against added friends 3/5
I love the game but hate the fact that we can’t race against our actual friends vs just playing the online people.
So it’s never happening is it? 2/5
This game gets a 2 until ACTUAL PVP is implemented. It has been grayed out since the game’s launch with no word on when it is coming out so until then, nothing more than a 2 star
But but but 4/5
By super awesome Mario 64
I love it it’s so awesome I recommend it❤️❤️❤️❤️😎😎😎😎👍🏾👍🏾👍🏼🤩🤩🤩😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
By Gods Not Dead!!!!
Won’t let me play, what’s up with that!!!!!!!
Why you should download it 5/5
This game is fun and addictive but it is fun for me and the kids to play it all day long but the only thing that can make you feel like a good one to play it
Great game, super fun. But has limits to longevity 3/5
I definitely love this game. When I first downloaded it, I played it every day! Then I trials the gold pass and realized there wasn't any real benefit to keeping it. Signing up for it gets you plenty of prizes, but other than the 200cc (which you don't even get extra points for place), there isn't much else to make it worth the money. I also agree with other reviews that the rubies are really overpriced and that the pipe has USELESS prizes 99% of the time. I don't understand what Nintendo would lose to loosen their pocket strings and give out better prizes on the pipes. I also find the races to be same old, same old eventually without many changes or added challenges to them. They're too short to really keep me interested week to week. So now I play here and there but it's really lost me as the avid fan and player I was to start.
Love the game but..... 5/5
The game keeps on freezing and I have anger problem with this game please fix my game😡😡😡😡
By Hotdogchria 123
Nintendo why must you lock multiplayer within a pay wall?!!!!! I want to play with my friend but I can’t!!!! So make multiplayer free and get rid of Pink Gold Peach!!!! Please. Also I think that the points distribution is bad, and you need too many points in some places. Plus I had to get 10,000 points on a short track.
The tournaments are literally impossible to win, like 29,000 points between 3 races, that’s like 10,000 a race, you’d probably need 200cc to earn that which means you literally need a gold pass to win
Good game, but only one thing... 5/5
Good game, but the daily selects in the shop need more variety. They have literally the same stuff everyday.
Way too far into the pay to win side 2/5
This is a fun game at first when you have no carts or characters so no matter what you get from the pipe is new. They have a mechanism to buy items with coins but most of what you can buy are duplicates of what you already have. The only way to get the nice stuff is to buy packages or gold membership. The game has a ranking system based on points you get from completing races. To do well at the races, you have to have the right characters and carts and gliders. To get those you have to pay so much money.
Purchase options 4/5
By You lazy
Why is that the same old stuff is sold for coins time and time again? Unless you pay for them with real money you have a VERY limited chance to get new drivers/carts/gliders with the ruby pipe pull. Why not just let us purchase with coins anything at anytime since we have a limit on the amount of coins we can earn daily anyway...
No Control 3/5
Controls are atrocious! All I can do is bounce off the walls.
Crashes immediately 1/5
After the new update the app keeps closing constantly. I didn’t open it for 24hrs to see if that would make a difference and now it closes not even 20 seconds after opening the app. Awful.
Slow, and too many downloads 2/5
It seems like every time I open up the game I have to wait for it to download some information. That takes a while. While playing it, it’s also slow, as well as takes a while to show scores at the end. Overall, didn’t really match up to what I was expecting.
Besides that, visuals were great, and it was definitely fun to play!

Need one on one multiple player mode
Fun but plagued by micro-transactions 2/5
Really fun and has the Mario kart/Nintendo charm, however, I’m left disappointed because it’s just not rewarding in the end. You should be awarded with rubies but instead they’re an awful MT currency and I’m sorry but post-Apple arcade is rather pay 5$ for this app and never see a single micro transaction, it honestly ruins the game. Too bad guess I’ll be deleting this and heading back to Apple Arcade 🤷🏻♂️
Not what it should be 2/5
Don’t attempt to play it on your 15 minute lunch break at work - it randomly forces you to “download the latest data” before you can proceed to the game. These updates take far too long, especially if you’re on cellular, or a slow company-provided WiFi connection. And if you think you can send the app to the background and do something else during the download, think again. This app is ALL ABOUT making money off of you. This is very unfortunate, because I am the biggest Mario kart fan ever and really tried to like this app. Also, just FYI, the steering control is awful (try to get the cart to go back straight after a big turn - OMG).
Almost impossible to get gems without paying. Im going to delete. As soon as this gets changed ill download and give 5 star reveiw
I really like the game but I agree with most of the reviews that the gems are too expensive and it would be nice to have a different orientation. As well as a button to use your items. I always accidentally use them. And seriously what is with the experience point limit.
I’ve opened about 5 10 burst in a row and didn’t get a single new thing and that’s all I have to say👎🏽
Fun game, but.. 3/5
It’s a fun game, but having to get the gold thing to play multiplayer is unfair and makes me not wanting to play anymore. The “bots” rumor is unsettling and also makes me not want to play anymore either.
Ya had me, then ya lost me 2/5
Add multiplayer already. We’re getting bored.
Súper Mario Kart 3/5
I love playing this game but after a while it lacked on the variety of the Mario kart. I would like for you guys to already add the ballon war and a multiplayer where you’re able to race your friends. All in all, the game was satisfying and brought me back to think of the times I played it on the Nintendo 64 🕹
By suicide snow leopard :(
I find it idiotic that when you hit someone with a shell they don’t get hit or anything like that because they have a item and the bots when you against bowser children they do the same thing they don’t do anything different and are far better than the player thanks a lot :/
Great Game 4/5
I am so happy that I can play Mario kart on my phone, but the micro transactions are really annoying
This is amazing! 5/5
This game is a real substitute to the console Mario karts. You should play this game
my parents would not get me a Nintendo.but now I don’t want one!
Luv it 5/5
I love the game. It challenges you to do better. And the verity of characters. I just luv the game
Mind blowing 5/5
This is the most completely satisfying mobile game I think I’ve ever played. This is what I’ve been waiting for Nintendo to finally give me. I haven’t spent a dime on it and I’ve played it since September when it came out. I don’t know why anyone is complaining about prices of rubies. The short amount of time it takes to race one track is perfect for mobile.
Anyone complaining about this game is crazy.
Cant be competitive 2/5
By Pisssseddddd offfff
As much as I like the game play, you have to spend money to compete in the tiers. Just made it to tier 7 and you can tell the people ranked 1-3 spent a lot of money.. pretty sad for such a good game.
Really wish there was an option on the steering controls, where you can turn your phone sideways and use arrows instead of sliding your finger
Great game but 3/5
So I’ve been playing this and even spent money on it, I bought the gold pass, I later deleted the game because I got board of it and it keeps charging me for the gold pass I don’t want anymore. I deleted the game and it still trying to make me pay.
