How does it compare to something like mario kart?

Never played this but I gave my wii to my sister and I've been really missing the kind of fun/chaotic racing a game like mario kart provided. Is this a good playstation kind of game like that? I just want a racing game that's not overly serious, and is fun to play casually when I have some friends over.

Its slow, boring, and the items are insanely cheap.

Yeah, its like Mario Kart.

There is a demo now. I'm thinking about trading mine in. The items are just too cheap. I had more fun with modnation but modnation has the worst load times EVER! Another fun option is Sonic Racing Transformed. If I had to choose its hard to decide between modnation and sonic, but I think i'd give it to modnation with the custom characters you can download.

So far I think LBPK is so so. If you like creating your own content, this game is pretty cool. Tons of options for customizing your track. It's fun and I'm a fan of the LBP series, but I'm disappointed that some of the series staples didn't make it to this game. If everyone is playing on one console, only Player 1's progress and customization is saved. The overall sense of speed is relatively slow as well (compared to other kart racers) and the weapons are rather cheap. Now you can create your own weapons, but if you play other peoples' levelxs, you're stuck with whatever they chose.

Modnation is an excellent choice if you like just a fun kart racer and maybe don't want to get into the creating aspect. Lots of tracks, better weapons, faster vehicles, and an overall more entertaining split-screen experience.

It's a great game, but for some reason, the game wasn't marketed well and noone plays it. That ruins a game built on online tracks and features.

Nah, Mario Kart 7 is the best one since 64.

Please leave the internet

because no amount of insults to you is enough for that sentence.

Do not dare compare 64 with that trash

Now that I think about it, 7 is probably objectively better than 64 in every way.

I enjoyed it more than MNR, Mario Kart Wii and Sonic Racing Transformed. But that's me.
