Mario Kart Wii Update 3

Another hour has gone by and so it's time for another little mini-review. I figure there's no better time to capture my initial impressions than as I'm having them.

I've spent this last period of time using the Wiimote and Nunchuck combo. I find that I have a lot more control this way. I can do the drift boosting and the stunts with no problems.

I've completed the first four cups on 50cc, with Star and Leaf next to go (and two question marks to unlock). I'll probably try the classic and Gamecube controllers later this evening, but right now I want to check out all the tracks.

The old updated tracks are great. Sherbet Land from the N64 now has a new ramp you can do a stunt off of (otherwise, it's just as I remembered it). Waluigi stadium from the gamecube has all kinds of half-pipe stuff added so you can go do stunts off the walls if you want to. The DS tracks seem pretty much the same, but that might be because I don't have as much experience on them as I do the N64 and before versions.

Alright...enough posting, on to the Star cup!
