Mike Matei reviews Mario Kart 8... horribly

Should have been called "Mike Matei rants: MK8's lack of battle arenas"

He spends like 2:30 of the video complaining and 10 seconds simply listing the game's good features without analyzing any of them.

Does Mike make anything good when he's not playing a role in an AVGN episode?

This just shows how he's simply riding on the channel's fanbase to make any half-assed video and still get views.

He's right, though. The game is near perfect except for utterly destroyed battle mode.
Microsoft, stop trying to make "Scroogled" happen. It's not going to happen.

What makes the game near-perfect? He doesn't goes in any bit of detail regarding that. He's like oh yeah but the game is near perfect it has this stuff. Yay. Done!

That's not just a ****y review. It's a rant.

Saw it the day it was posted. It's too short to be considered a review in my opinion. Still, Mike brought up a lot of good points. Battle mode truly is terrible and the fact that the replay option is listed first is really, REALLY dumb.

I have a bunch of nitpicks with the game, but I didn't even consider the replay option thing. So, insightful vid.

In a sentence: he loves the game but thinks battle mode sucks. Isn't that how we all feel?

AVGN himself has sucked for at least four years now.

I don't think his chief goon would be having any better luck being entertaining.
