Default Why did MK7 "fail"

The run up to the game made it sound like THE Mario kart game.
It looked so fun to play but for some reason it just hasn't cut it.

The whole "community/clan" thing never took off.

Why do you think this is?

I think MK7 failed because it lost it's WOW factor after playing it so much.

I'm not saying it failed completely. I put fail in quotations to say how did it fail when it came to community based things. They really hyped it up as if it was a heaven for clans but it just didnt work!

Indeed! I use to play MKDS for hours and i got countless fun from it. Only recently i got bored of it. I got bored after playing Mario Kart 7 after 2 weeks. Didnt have the zing MK's previously had.

I don't think it will ever fail. It's a constant success and I won't stop playing it ever . The only way it sort of failed was by not being available at launch.

Games werent originally intended for clans you see
but some people just make clans out of them anyway
you cant blame them for making clans in MK7 it makes sense for it to have clans

It "failed" because Nintendo doesnt need to bother making Mario Kart "better." They know that Mario Kart fans will buy the franchise over and over again no matter what, so why change the formula...

The only time they ever really tried to make Mario Kart "new" was when they made Double Dash, and they ultimately threw that concept away and have relied on the same shyte since!

Its probably why you feel that the community isnt as glorious as say MKDS, because Mario Kart 7 isnt much of an improvement, and there are far less 7 players than DS players.

I think if Nintendo would allow some community level customization in the next Mario Kart, then it will better, I mean like "build your own levels," make your own characters, tweak item frequency, laps... But that is only my opinion. I am of the opinion that the community usually creates better content than what the developer's parameters force THEM to create.

Before anyone decides to vigorously debate me about "failed," I am not talking about sales. Im talking about the hypothetical failed that is in some gamer's minds. Of course its not a failure in the traditional sense of making money. That is all

What does MKWii have to do with this? I was comparing DS and 7. And of course you are taking "fail" in a sense that I dont mean.

Just because something Sells doesn't make it an outstanding game.. It feels outstanding for about... 2 weeks. It might still sell but it isn't what they said it would be... this is what i'm trying to get at

Why did it fail? Because MKWii is better in every way!

Better online
Better controls
Less buggy
Better characters
Better Karts
Better Single Player mode

The game throws some features, but only the new movement styles(flight and underwater) actually change anything.

No. It was bought so many times because it was already a popular franchise. Just like CoD. MW3 looks like crap!(Sorry, guys, it does. Black Ops 2 looks pretty good though), but it still sold greatly because of how popular the franchise is.
I am not at all a CoD fan and do not claim to be. MW3 was just an example. Don't Kill me. The new one looks fun!

Mario Kart 7's online play already fail to me considering I get disconnected many times everytime I play, but it's probably my poor internet connection to blame.

As a whole, I would say that MK7 is a huge success. I like the new features like buying parts and paragliding, the 3d effect, and the track design is pretty good.

About the community and clan thing, I never bother using it, again, thanks to the poor internet connection. If just my mom isn't cheap and opted for package with faster speed, sigh.

well if it didnt look good on the ad
people wouldnt buy it not even the fans
so it would have to be a good game if it were to sell like that
and i suppose even Non - Mario Kart fans would buy it to
because it looked that good.

But the ads didn't make it look good. It made it look Mario Kart. Fans/parents would have bought it because of that. Not because the ad made the game look good. And nonfans won't see the point as it is just another Mario Kart and not buy it.

I get you like the series, but don't make that hide the truth from you. I love Mario Kart, but I still know MK7 had too many obvious flaws that prevent it from becoming good, so it is a failure in my opinion.

please don't make title threads as if they are "FACT"...

FACT is very different to OPINION

also please define fail, is FAIL = not my taste? doesn't hook me?

you should've named the title - Mario Kart Community Mode - is it a fail??

FYI, If it came off as fact, the title would read "Why did Mario Kart 7 fail?"

By puting the "fail" in quotations, it means that its HIS interpretation of fail. Which means that its not to be taken as fact.

So, that means you should focus on giving your opinion, instead of offering eroneous thread titling advice.

mariokart7 was ok, but i feel that there was little content. Love designing the car but they threw bikes away (one awesome feature on the wii) and VERY limited characters unlike the ones on the wii. However the game is actually very good but i feel it was a bit rushed for christmas unfortunatly

Actually i'm using a comparison to make my judgement. When the game was made a whole load of Communities were made. There was one offical community and many people joined it. The majority of the rest just failed. In comparison, Mario Kart Wii had a huge Clan base and that's why I'm saying the commuity aspect of it "failed" My own personal feelings of this are aside. I'm questioning how it didnt become as much as a success as MKW.

I've recently started to dislike the game. There are multiple reasons to why, but the biggest one to me was that it crowds up the Mii Plaza. Yes, I do know about the option of disabling SpotPass Miis, but I only recently found that out (that's my own fault, though.) I've gotten Theme 7 months ago, and I hated it. It was utter crap compared to 5 & 6. I also disliked the fact that once you reach 3000 Miis, it starts deleting older Miis in replacement to new ones. I've accidentally killed off 2 Level 7s and a Special Mii because of this. All in all, I'd much rather have a Mii Parade-ish option, like in the Wii.

As for the game itself, it's nothing new, other than the big mistake of the new characters. The WiFi was glitchy, you get dis-c'd for trolling for a FEW SECONDS (ex. Using a star on only 1 person), the game was too easy (I easily got a 3 star in 7, but only have 1 star in DS and none in Wii), and there's little to no replayability.

I think Mario Kart 7 is a great game. Its a Mario Kart game, like every other one true, but thats because it works. More changes to the series would be great, and this game had two main changes:
1. Flight and underwater driving
2. Kart Costumization
Granted I really don't care about #1, its only so neat, but I wouldn't mind it staying around, but #2 is the bigger deal. There should be so many more customization options, but its a start. If I recall right from the Iwata asks interview, that feature was added as something extra if the programmers had time, meaning it wasn't fully fleshed out. I think, or perhaps hope, the fan reaction should motivate Nintendo to actually flesh out that mode of the game so we can change the colors of the karts, and maybe more options for the physical design of the karts. Mario Kart 7 may not be revolutionary, but it could be a springboard for the next version to really be that revolutionary title you were hoping for. Knock on wood so I don't jinx it.

hey uh, just to bring this to your attention, I dont know if intentional, but your title of "physco" is spelled wrong. It should be "psycho" but if it was intentional, disregard.

Also, I think the guy was referring to the stupid "fail" argument.

I'm personally feeling the opposite in that I am finding myself liking Mario kart 7 more and Mario kart wii less. I went back to play MK wii to make some gameplay videos for it, and I must say, I have forgotten just how brutal 150cc can be; never mind the almost broken balancing of the item system that enabled multiple lighting strikes, stars, and the ability to lose your stored item upon impact. Mario kart 7 fixed some of that, and for that I am quite relieved.

That is not to say that wii is a broken game by any means, and although I have resorted to switching to GC controller to put up with the potential madness, it still has many things that make it appealing on its own. In the end, however, I just find 7 to be an overall more enjoyable
game. It has a more forgiving item system, took out some items that borderlined on being outright broken, and is just plain fun to pick up and play in both single and multiplayer.

I can't comment too much on my impressions with wii's online in comparison, as I believe my impressions are somewhat outdated, but yeah... Those are my two cents ^_^


I wouldn't call Mario Kart 7 a failure,but rather just a solid,worthwhile installment that does just enough to justify its presence on 3DS.

I've played MK7 for 3 days after buying it....There's nothing new, the series lost it after the DS. The characters are crap, the new maps suck, the 10 coin limit thing is stupid, and the whole SEA air laND Phrase they used to market the game with, barely was used. A game shouldn't even be based of little things like that. Double dash was refreshing because it mixed things up, and Mario DS Was the First good graphic Mario kart on a portable, that you could play with friends. Mario 7 just feels like a Bland copy of the original Mario kart with the most unappealing game features in the history of Nintendo. Sorry if i seem negative, but this is true.

I'll admit some aspects like the A.I. are still similar, but from my experience are slightly dumbed down by comparison. as for the online aspects, it depends how you look at it. It has a greater emphasis on community, and in some ways it works, but I guess for others not so much.

I've always picked Koopa Troopa since Mario Kart Wii (love that lil' fella), so I can't comment too much on the lack of characters since I always stuck with the one I preferred.

I hope I covered everything. In the end, its too each own. I see Mario Kart 7 as a improvement in some aspects, but not exactly perfect either (for some reason, you can no longer "curve your red shells to hit the side or front of an opponent when fired at an angle. In 7, they always hit the back of the car when fired behind a player.).

That aspect above is the only beef I can think of at the moment for 7. I would mention that maka wuhu level, but they have fixed/ about to fix that.

It personally didn't fail to me, but that's just because it happens to bemy favorite since double dash. I don't see why people complained about luck and kind of stuff so much with this one though, since luck has been part of it for a long time. It had my favorite tracks and music of any game too, so that helps. And online gave it a million times more replayability than ds.

Uhh... you're kidding right? Mario Kart 7 IS the game to have. Communities did take off, and rather well. The "Join Game" option started with this game. It's an incredible feature. The use of 3D is nice, the character roster is... almost perfect. Few complaints about the added characters but its not a game changer. Plus I should also add this game is the perfect game to play with friends locally. Can't beat download play and 8 total players.

Yeah.. not sure where you'd get off saying what you did about the game, but i guess people are entitled to their own opinion.

Double dash was great! I feel though, MK7 Depends on luck to much. For instance, people in front get screwed over by blue shells, Fall into last place. Items shouldn't go to the people in last place, they should be random. I've had online races where A Player was all the way in 1st, I got a blue shell, got him in last, then got first. How is that fair?

I don't know, maybe it's just me, but it's been that way going back to MK64. Blue shells have been screwing people over since they have been there.

But for some reason, glitch or not, i could escape them in those games. Also, they weren't that common in the older games. Now there are Blue shells all over the track. It used to be something that when you got it, you would be like, "Yeah! A blue shell!" Now, they come so often, you don't even care. You just send them off like it's a damn bannana.

I can recall times where 2nd placemen get triple reds, 3rd placers getting trip shrooms. And these are races consisting of 8 people. I've put my 1-digit loss streak to jeopardy due to this BS. Why do I care so much about this, you may ask? Because of StreetPass showing how much people suck, unlike Wii, where I'd just enjoy myself to my hearts content. Oh, and I do recall blue shells occuring in Lap 3 just as much as Wii.
Also, I think the not lose items programming was more or less laziness, as you don't drop the item you were holding when lightning strikes. And you lose items when falling.

Mario Kart 7 didn't fail, it just peeves the Hell out of me with the horrible character roster. -_-

Probably not, but I would think that people who disliked this game would love 64 because it was the least luck based mk besides the original.

I've learned that if a game fails it's only because YOU ARE NOT THE TARGET. MK7 was not made for people who wanted some new spin in the Mario racing concept, I feel like it's for those FANS of the series who loved every game, and specially the first and second ones.

I used to think every CoD was a fail, but then I realized it wasn't made for people like me.

MK7 feels like a great game to me, I like the new tracks, I'm in love with the SNES and N64 tracks, I couldn't care less about Waluigi and Dry Bones, Love the kart "customization" concept, I don't have a "clan" but the communities I play at are active. Plus we have days and times when we know others can play.

The only FAIL is the damn "booklet" I HATE those damn poster like things, why can't they print a regular handbook as in the old days?

The manual is in the game itself. Going green and all that.

I dislike 64 due to AI rubberbanding. The game felt like a lie. At least Yoshi's voice? you know what I mean.

Yeah, I know. Still I prefer having a lot of paper and cardboard. I'm crazy about KI:U cardboard box.

Yeah. It's already there. Select the game in the 3ds menu and one of the options below is "Manual" I believe.

How? SP Versus didn't really add anything. Beside MKDS mopped the floor with 7 and Wii in the Single player department.

No. It was bought so many times because it was already a popular franchise. Just like CoD. MW3 looks like crap!(Sorry, guys, it does. Black Ops 2 looks pretty good though), but it still sold greatly because of how popular the franchise is.
I am not at all a CoD fan and do not claim to be. MW3 was just an example. Don't Kill me. The new one looks fun!
Maybe people bought Mario Kart because *gasp* they like Mario Kart! Crazy right. Same reason people buy Call of Duty each year because they actually like the formula and don't want it to change.

This generation is the generation of the FPS. Its obvious that the reason why Mario Kart 7 failed was because there arent any guns in it.

You must be being sarcastic, right? If you're not, here's a hint: 3DS doesn't quite appeal to the same audience who buy 360s.

Of course I am. Microsoft caters to the more mature audience and Nintendo caters to the kid and family audience. It would be pretty cool seeing a kart with a Gatling gun on it.

It added the ability for us to pick which tracks we want and when instead of having to go through an entire tournament to go to the one good track...

Notice I said "It was a popular franchise" meaning just what you said. I'm saying that is why the game sold well, because this game is, at its core, Mario Kart. However, MK7 then throws in useless additions(minus the flying/underwater segments, those were awesome) and just isn't good compared to MKWii.

Care to explain which bugs those are? The only bugs I've encountered in 7 are the Maka Wuhu glitch and Wuhu Island glitch. One of which is getting patched. Wii, on the other hand, has a crapload of more bugs which won't ever be patched.

What useless additions were thrown in? I just don't seem to understand why you don't enjoy MK7. Personally it's my favorite Mario Kart game due to the fact it has the best track design and it is the most balanced Mario Kart.

Opinion, and very far from being an absolute fact. As many people there are that believe that Mario Kart Wii was the best, there are those on the opposing side that believe Mario Kart Wii was the worst.

Yes, people loved some of the new things they could do in that game, but Mario Kart 7 also brings fresh new ideas to the table. It holds strong, and will continue to hold strong as long as it appeals to other players.

For those who complain that Mario Kart 7 is completely buggy, you either have a very terrible connection while playing online, or are complaining about the glitches that are going to be fixed this month. I've watched a lot of videos on Mario Kart Wii, and THAT is a perfect example of a buggy game, especially with all the game breaking glitches.

Mario Kart 7 doesn't even have a year to its name yet, but given more time more people will pick up on it, especially with the fact that most people will be out enjoying summer, meaning the online mode will be rampant with players old, and fresh new ones alike.

Yes it is getting patched, that is good. However
  • People going invincible
  • items just vanishing while playing
  • Numerous crashes in Single Player
  • Getting first place and being told I was 8th
  • Getting in 8th place and told I won(I had a really bad run there )

There was only three major additions to MK7. Kart Customization, Communities, and air/sea karting.

Air/sea is awesome, cannot complain on that.
Customization is ok, but I would rather have the motorcycles back.
Communities are awful for reasons already stated.

I'm not enjoying the game because nothing new is really interesting. Yes air/sea is awesome, but isn't good enough.

On the bugs I have never expirenced any of these 0.0 If any of these are in multiplayer than it is obvious lag. (which happenes in MKWII too at that!). Are you sure your copy hasnt been tampered/messed up in anyway because beside you nobody I know on the internet or irl has expirenced these "bugs".

Also it is a good thing they took out bikes. You might not agree but everybody in competitive mario kart does. Bikes made karts utterly useless because they had an advantage over them in nearly every single situation. In an offical mario kart tornument cart users were aloud to give themselves a percentage of "speed hacks" so it would even the playing field with bike users.

Also, I wouldnt say communities are awful. Me and like twenty or so other people have are own personal community group that has been active since day 1 and still is. I would honestly say without that community I would have enojyed/played the game less. (I know I am the minority in this situation but the minoirity has to always be accounted for)

The community aspect of the game is pretty bad, but concept was great.
*points to the official member community thread*
I made that thread because of billion threads being posted for communities.
The simple truth is they suck, and not even the owners join often, let alone other people.

Another problem I've been facing is how useless Time Trials are. In Wii, you'd unlock new characters and karts. Here, you get… NOTHING!

Ok this I disagree on. Time Trials is for high scores, not unlocks. Time trials are probably the most improved part of MK7 with streetpass ghosts and having 7 different ghosts/times at a time.

I will give MK7 that, it has the best time trials of them all.

People becoming invisible, re-appearing infront of me, yet being a rank lower and losing in 2nd place despite me being the first one to cross the finish line happened to me in Mario Kart DS, Wii and 7. I didn't have lag when this things happened and hell, even a ghost in Mario Kart Wii beated me without even moving.

It didn't fail, but there were/are some really bad things:

Lag online/Invisible players
Glitches

If those didn't exist, it would be even better

A lot actually. Reguardless of what internet I use(say a relative's internet) or what is happening ingame.

As for the crashes, it is always when I unlock a part, the game just freezes there and I have to hard restart.

This all has to do with you having a terrible internet connection.

1. They're not going invisible, the game just filled in spaces of where they could be, then it finally got a signal from the network where it actually is, and relocates it.

2. Someone took it before you but you hadn't noticed because of lagg. Again, your connection sucks.

3. Bull****. It's impossible for the game to crash in single player unless your cartridge is not plugged in well enough.

4. Your connection was so bad, it could not receive any responses for where everyone was. It thus filled in the moves by themselves, making you first compared to what your 3DS generated. Then when the results came it compared all finish times, and everyone actually finished before you, making you 8th. This happened to me once too (said I was 1st, was actually 5th). Move closer to your router or just get a better internet connection.

5. Same as #4.

4. Your connection was so bad, it could not receive any responses for where everyone was. It thus filled in the moves by themselves, making you first compared to what your 3DS generated. Then when the results came it compared all finish times, and everyone actually finished before you, making you 8th. This happened to me once too (said I was 1st, was actually 5th). Move closer to your router or just get a better internet connection.

5. Same as #4.
Ok, so your idea is to say my internet sucks and not think of an actual argument.

However, I used multiple internet connections(My house, grandparents houses, friend's etc..) and recieved the same response. Are you saying ALL of these had sucky internet connections? Really? Explain why I was chatting with another friend online and we both hit the same guy, and he came off perfectly fine for both of us? Note. We were not using the same connection, we were at our own houses chatting through Steam noticing this.

So no, it wasn't internet connection, but thanks for calling me a liar on the crashes

Pulling this out to actually address each issue.

1. People going invincible will happen a LOT in online, simply because of the various connection types between players. It is NOT an issue with the game, it is an issue of lag.
2. Items vanishing? Haven't heard anyone report this issue as of yet, so it most likely is an error with your copy. Have you not kept good care of it?
3. Again, an issue that has not widely been reported. You are the first case of it I've seen, but again, this is most likely an issue with your copy of the game.
4 and 5. Lag, put simply. If this happens to you in single player, I think the answer is obvious.

Just to say, MK7 does not suck just because you yourself have issues with the game. In this scenario, it would do you better to buy a new copy of the game if you're experiencing a lot of issues in single player. What has been happening to you is VERY rare.

I think that Mario Kart 7 is a great game. It did not "fail." It was easily one of the better games released, so far, for the Nintendo 3DS. I admit that the Community feature was not one of Nintendo's better ideas, but that doesn't make Mario Kart 7 a "fail." The glitches didn't ruin the game either. The glitches were fun to exploit.

Yes, I have taken good care of my copy.

As for me saying the game is bad, take a look at my previous posts, I had much more reasons why I didn't like the games, it being buggy was just one of the reasons I don't like the game.

Every time i get a new car piece, the game freezes and i can't do anything unless i close the game. That's not BS and it is possible for a game to crash in single player.

Thank you.

I'm glad Nintendo is fixing the Wuhu glitch, but there are still plenty to go. You cannot pin lag on everything, especially when that isn't the problem.

However, there are still plenty of other problems with the game that needs to be fixed before I get back to it.

Normally, I'd respect opinions and facts, but if your stating incorrect info, and swearing, I have no reason to respect. You swallow a bar of soap, because you should be family friendly, after all, you are defending a family friendly game. You're mouth was so bad, that I had to rant about it.

I have experienced 1P crashed lotsa times, especially when unlocking new kart parts. (Most annoying one was Gold Tires when going online)

It depends, if you like the series, regardless, sure. But expect pile of poop internet. Trust me on that, you get dis-c'd for a lot of things.
If you want more of a fast paced, fun, online heaven type game (what the people saying MK7 sucks says, including me), get Wii. Plus, it has Dry Bones.

The Wii version is fun, but I think its worth mentioning that I haven't had a lot of problems with my game, other than 1 crash when a kart part was unlocked, and I have a lot of them. Also, my internet works fine, I don't use it a whole lot, but when I do, I'm not disconnected. I'd be curious to know why I don't have these problems, yet others due, but I felt it was worth mentioning.

Not sure if serious, but if you are. Then you are dropping in quality of posts each time you argue that one point. I don't like the game, I am not a noob for not playing the game. I can dislike Mario Kart 7 if I want to.

I don't think it failed. But I do think it wasn't as good as it could have been. It felt a bit rushed, in my opinion...

To be a little more specific on what I stated at first:

Multiple crashes (including the dreadful new Kart part glitch) have been experienced in my game. For example, I would go on WiFi, and select my character, only to wait 10 minutes (heck, it could've taken longer!) until I finally got a message stating on how opponents dis-c'd from me. What opponents? I was forced to stare at the Earth for 10 minutes! Also, numerous glitches banjo3dsie stated on were problems I was faced with.
I guess you are just lucky! Nice to know someone isn't experiencing these horrendous things, and that you are being reasonable about it. (Rather than bash other members who actually get these glitches *Raises eyebrow*)

Not to burst your bubble, but that's not even a logical argument. Though what I'm about to say is just as illogical as yours.
Learn proper punctuation and grammar.
"Umm, because you've gotta stop being a noob. Seriously."
I twisted around some words, but it looks pleasing to the eye.

Just to state, there's a huge difference between an actual fault with the game, and problems with the servers that play host to the online mode.

Singe player problems are very rare, and if you have experienced them frequently, you should have exchanged your copy rather than keep it and blame the game (as well as Nintendo) for your misfortune.

Now, I'm not saying anyone in this thread has done it, or said anything relating to it, but people should be happy now that Nintendo has upgraded their online functionality on the transfer to the Nintendo Network. Unfortunately Mario Kart 7 didn't get the luxury to earn a spot there, so yes, you WILL have to deal with the problems you face online, there's no way around it. Sad, but true. There will be lag, there will be stupid things happening. It's also safe to say that distance between players in the room will play a huge part in how responsive everything is.


Mario Kart 7 is a very fun game, at least in my opinion. Steps way ahead of other games past, albeit not everything is perfect, but regardless, Mario Kart 7 is a fun game. For those people that states it failed as a fact; it's your own opinion, so please say it that way. Games won't meet everyone's expectation and some will think it rose far above them, so fact is absent from everything.

Of course it's natural to dislike a game if you're bad at it, but that isn't the case here. I think you just need to accept the fact some people dislike the game due to too many annoying problems they've experienced and it's put them off from enjoying it.

Pretty much how I feel towards MK7. I wouldn't call it a complete failure, it's still a good and fun game, but I thought it really wasn't as good as it was made out to be. It was hyped up to be like, the "Ultimate Mario Kart Game", but it didn't meet that expectation due to lag/connection issues, glitches, freezes poor and small character roster, etc.

I feel like bringing this back up. The bugs I experienced are not why I disliked the game, these reasons are.

You know why that is? Because you're literally the only person I have seen with these issues out of the hundreds of people I've seen talking about MK7 online. Especially the single player mode crash.

If I told you I see dead people, would you believe me? No you wouldn't, because you don't see them and no one else you've ever met claims to see them. Same for your supposed single player glitches.

google turns up nothing

and it's not mentioned here either

Honestly, just search on Youtube "Why Nobody likes Honey Queen". Also, search "Headless Mii Mario Kart 7"
Bolded info.
I've experienced these glitches. Because it's not in MarioWiki that means it doesn't exist? With that logic, the Headless Mii glitch must not "exist", but spinning out when upside down does? The Mario Kart DS Beta did this, if you bump your character's head on the ceiling/ floor, s/he'll flip over 3 times. Is that a glitch? No.

Yeah, people are being pretty harsh. I just wanted to point out for those interested in buying the game, those problems seem to be affecting some users more than others.

Why would you bold that reply inside my quote if you could just put it right where your regular text is?

Allright, that forum is swamping with people with that glitch you say. Care to show me some examples in that case? Though the best thing would be of course to just present me a video.

Yeah, because google is just swarming with reports of the glitch when I google for it. Oh wait. It isn't. Like I just showed you.


edit: Allright, so if supposedly multiple have reported the same single player glitch as you, why can't I find any threads on it in this boards? Here are all the threads that looked promising when I searched the board for the word "glitch":

http://3dsforums.com/mario-3ds-games...-online-29739/

You can go through all of them (like I did), but you won't find a single post reporting the game crashing in single player. Not a single one.

Look at that, people complaining about the same glitch as me. Its almost like you never paid attention!

Mario Kart 7 Crashes - Mario Games - Nintendo 3DS Community

And what's this, more people stating the same glitch?


And even a video of the glitch!
Very strange freeze in Mario Kart 7. - YouTube

Almost like you never searched. This took me about 5 minutes to find.

Just going to add in this glitch happens with characters as well





So what was that you said about not being able to find complaints on the glitch and that I am lying?

EDIT:I'm just going to continue posting videos here. No point adding making more posts. Remember though, I'm a liar and this is just BullS**t. You can NEVER have Single Player crashes.

My only complaints have been stated already by other users.

Here they are anyway.

Online is glitchy (enough said), kart customization was lacking(Not enough variety in stats), poor roster of characters (Honey Queen), small roster (Only 17 characters if you include Mii), small list of kart "parts"(Need I say more), easy to unlock everything(Had everything, but gold parts in less than 1 month), easy triple star (I don't even have one star in MKds.)

I like it as a game, but believe it failed as a MK game. I feel the only improvements were addition of customization, gliding/diving, 3 sections in a track instead of 3 laps.

Bring back the Mega-Mushroom and Fake-Item-Box!!!

And what's this, more people stating the same glitch?


And even a video of the glitch!
Very strange freeze in Mario Kart 7. - YouTube

Almost like you never searched. This took me about 5 minutes to find.
Interesting. So the glitch does exist. Sorry I doubted you bro (and sorry for my attitude). But now I wonder why I never heard of it untill you brought it up. Do you think it might be possible it only occurs in certain regional versions of the game?

Apology accepted.

As for the glitch, it honestly looks like those that don't get the glitch never experience it while those that do experience it every time they unlock a kart. At least that is what is happening to me.

So what was that you said about not being able to find complaints on the glitch and that I am lying?

EDIT:I'm just going to continue posting videos here. No point adding making more posts. Remember though, I'm a liar and this is just BullS**t. You can NEVER have Single Player crashes.




i think what it is is that some people need to treat their 3dses better

Mijzelfan, I forgive you. If in any way I made you uncomfortable about the debate, sorry. On the other hand...

My friend experienced this glitch on his brand new 3DS, on his first kart part. Care to explain? Or are you merely saying this to avoid the video proof?

Wow. My 3ds is in perfect condition and had the glitch. I saw no scratches in the other 3ds' shown and the glitch happened. This is a problem with the game Huwgii, Nintendo screwed up the code somehow. You cannot blame every glitch on lack of 3ds care.

Seriously, do you even know how glitches work?

Why? The kid can't handle criticism/pointing out the flaws of his favorite game very well? We can criticize and point out flaws if we want to :P

Regarding your "arguments":

1) I've played MK7 in 3 different 3DSes. They all had the glitch, so it's not the system, it's the game. I also tried 2 different cartridges, the glitch was still there. On a similar note, those 3 3DSes sometimes failed to recognize my copy of Super Mario 3D Land. Seems like Nintendo just didn't care that much about quality with Mario :P

2) Retailers have nothing to do with the game glitching up. Nintendo just didn't care that much in making sure all of the cartridges had quality.

So there. Bring a real argument or the one who needs to stop posting is you.

Wow, you are really trying to blame everything but Nintendo?

Also, I can post wherever I want. I am not spamming the MK7 threads saying I dislike the game(not hate). This thread is also "Why did MK7 fail", meaning I can post why I feel the game failed and it be ok.

I also would have been done posting a while ago, but some people just can't accept people dislike the game and most attack every point I make, so I have to stay and defend myself.


I would have a closing statement, but DarkK already beat me to that.

Me and my cousins trying out my copy of Mario Kart 7

> 3 DIFFERENT 3DSes try out MK7
*Glitched out in all 3 of them
> Same 3DSes try out a different copy of MK7
* Still the glitch was present

Nope. Next:
Me and my cousins testing out my Mario 3D Land copy

> 3 DIFFERENT 3DSes try out Mario 3D Land
* "The game card has been removed, press the home button to go back to the menu"
> Same 3DSes try out a different copy
* No glitch

Nope again. Next:

>Said 3DSes try out Sonic Generations
* No glitches, no "game card removed" bullcrap, no freezing
>Said 3DSes try out Super Street Fighter 4
*Same results
> Rabbids 3D
* Same result
>Ocarina of Time 3D
*Runs like a dream
>Samurai Warrior
*Perfect
>Spider-man: Edge of Time
*No freezing nor game card removed BS, though it does has it's problems (but that's because of the porting)

Should i go on? I've plenty of games to test out the cartridge slot. Just accept that Nintendo is not perfect with their games and move on.

I know a lot of people (including myself) who have experienced the game freezing while kart parts have been unlocked. It's just one of the issues the game has, so just because you've never experienced the freezing and other issues people here have had doesn't mean those people are careless.

Then why are you defending them? This is an obvious flaw on Nintendo's part that you are not accepting. Why is that?
If Nintendo is not perfect, then why do you keep saying its OUR fault for these crashes when it clearly is not?

Well, at least you did see the Maka Wuhu glitch, right? That ruined the online multiplayer for me (until now, since the patch has been released, but i don't care that much about MK7 anymore)

You make no sense, kid. First you blame us for Nintendo's glitches and problems, claiming that MK7 has no problems because YOU didn't experience them. And now you're saying that Nintendo is not perfect... And even then, you're still blaiming the system and not the game, lol.

Like i said earlier, you should stop posting unless you have a real argument/something smart to say.

Hey... come on, can't we just get along? Whether we think we have a point that needs proving or not, fighting about it won't do anything... well, except bring out the bad side in all of us, and give us headaches in the process.

As for why I viewed this thread, I personally think that MK7 is awesome. Assuming most of us buy our games like GameStop, can't we just turn it back in?

I don't think it failed, It's a great game with some nice polish, but it does feel a bit rushed out the door.

The single player is almost pointless after you've done everything you can, since balloon mode pretty much sucks if it's not last man standing. I mean, they could of at least made last man standing an option and not just 'get lots of points and die and respawn after you lose 3 balloons for some reason'. The lack of full CPU vs on a single track is kind of dumb too.

The online is a bit underwhelming. You can't set up a room for your friends. The community thing had potential, but falls flat due to it not being connected to your VR and the absolutely stupid item selection restrictions. Seriously, categories of 'Just Bombs' and 'Just Shells'? Why can't we just choose which items to have and which not to have? The Green Shell, Triple Red Shell and Blue Shell () are very different in the way they function, they just happen to all look like shells. Also the only way you can tell who's who during a race is to look at the touchscreen, I could be wrong.

Character roster is almost a joke. 'Nuff said.

This game could of been the most outstanding Mario Kart game ever, what with it having so much potential on a handheld device. But because of the need to boost 3DS sales as soon as possible there were a few oversights. What we got is still a great game that is really addictive and fluent, but unfortunately it falls a bit short in some areas that could of been much better than they already are.

That said, these things could easily be improved on with a patch. Though I doubt it.

Well, that's the point of having a forum. People fighting.. with words, until they forget about it and the thread eventually dies.

I don't really follow this argument anymore.

First people need to take better care of their 3DS, then it's the deliveries fault.... and now Nintendo isn't perfect and they screwed up the game. :/

I guess it would be best to just forget the argument and move on... or not and just do as you all please. xD

Agreed.
After reading Mr."Epic"Huwgii's truly horrendous counterarguments, I've come to a realization that this thread is causing an eyesore to the members, and it's somewhat my fault. I just think we should stop (and probably, maybe some other time, argue over some other moronic thing.CX)

Cool, lets end this here then.

If anyone has their own reasons on why MK7 "failed" or "succeeded" feel free to speak them out now, and lets not try to have pointless arguments now
But for future reference, I continue to post on these things because people keep arguing about them. Hopefully we are all done now.

This game is the most fun I've ever had with a mario kart game I've only played super mario kart , mario kart super circuit, and mario kart 64. This game has the best online ever no lag at all. If this is what the nintendo network is like nintendo has the best online experience. The lack of characters doesn't bother me because i only play as mario and the 3d is really good in this game. how the **** is this game a fail.

I've never played Super Circuit... It's a shame Nintendo isn't intending to put it on the eShop.

Theres always emulators plus i find these eshop games to be somewhat overpriced. if the games where 1 dollar i would buy em but $5, $6 is Too much for games that are so old and games that i already own.

"No Waluigi. Just sucks..."
"No Waluigi....just sucks...."
or
"No Waluigi, just sucks..."

I haven't seen this guy using periods and comas alot, so yeah.

Cool MK7 didnt FAIL......could have been better

If Mario Kart 7 had all the characters that make Mario Tennis Open cool if would have been AWESOME! Dats why Wii version was better. It had better characters and tracks. AGREE OR DISAGREE?

So instead of responding to the thread discussing this, you made a new thread...

Was there really a point to posting a new thread when we already have one?

But anyways partially disagree. I dont think MK7 failed, I agree it could use more charaters, and you said Wii had better tracks but that is all opinion. (I think MK7 had better ones overall)

Also Wii version had an imbalance between karts and bikes.

I am in a clan and I can say that it is not inactive. MK7 WW's are still far more active than MKWii ones. Honestly, MK7 did not fail in any respect. :/

No, financially it succeeded(Its Mario Kart, of course it will), the main question is really "did you enjoy this game?" For you it passed, but for others it failed.

Opinions are so 1999! MK7 is possibly the worst Mario kart In the series, with the worst player roster in any style game in the world. I was worried to get this game in the first place, I denied my instincts, and I'm in a pile of **** with wheels now.

I don't think Mk7 was a fail(its a great game imo), but this is what I didn't like about it

1. Too many BS items, it'd be better if Blue shells and lightning were really rare instead of fairly common

2. I don't feel like there is a lot of room for driving skill, there is some sure but it feels dumbed down

Mario Kart 7 is not a fail.

It's just hardly felt anything fresh or new. Yeah, the gliding was a nice feature but it's not enough to help make this installment appear unique compared with the past ones. I prefer the character roster of Mario Kart DS over 7. [Queen Bee?] I also didn't like that the emblem feature from DS wasn't re-used in 7.

I got it in December as a Christmas present and I still play it. It's one of the best titles for the 3DS so far, in my opinion, of course. The Mario games really took off! I don't think the communities and clans "fail"! I race with them all the time. There are tons, and I'm always racing in communities. In fact, I find the solo CPU mode far more boring than playing multilayer or in a community.

I think the "vanishing items" mentioned earlier was pertaining to the game's way of keeping the track clean... they brought it back for Double Dash and have kept the feature since. It can be annoying to some to be driving and see the item they dropped down a lap ago disappear into thin air. Shells are notorious for doing that seconds after being released. Although I do have to say that it doesn't happen as often as it did in Double Dash. They have gameshark codes for SMK & 64 where the items stay on the track no matter what... it's was an interesting feature when activated.

I personally get annoyed when approaching the finish line in 1st, I shoot a shell behind me to hit A.I. #1 and they get passed by #2, yet they remain in 2nd place because that was their position while I was crossing the finish line. I think this feature should be removed!

I loved the powersliding in 64 & DS, so Nintendo's attempt to prevent "snaking" in this game has taken away some good, but I do very much enjoy the added turbo boosts created from hopping off of ramps and bumps. Nice touch.

I am a little set back by how much slower the kart is in this game compared to all others (drafting in this game is awesome though), but the slower pace is balanced by smoother controls. In this game, the only time I fall off the track is when an opponent pushes me or I am not paying attention to the track--not because I have difficulty controlling the kart itself. I had the hardest time getting used to the feel of Double Dash and Wii! And I am so happy that the karts bounce off the walls instead of coming to a complete stop.

I don't like it when an A.I. intentionally slows down/crash because I have fallen behind or because the AI #1 has fallen behind. This should not happen. The A.I. in first place should drive as if they want first place, the game shouldn't use the rubberband effect. There's always the option of online play, but I've not been convinced of its authenticity, and I've been disconnected too many times to take it seriously.

It would also have been nice to see them bring back AI reactions (whether it be hearing their reaction after crashing into my item or seeing their avatar on the bottom screen spin upon impact). Why did they get rid of the multiple map features? I liked it when we had the choice of type of map to reference.

Overall, this is still a solid installment. It does lack the OPTIONS for players to customize their own gaming preference. It would also have been nice to be granted the pleasure of creating our own cup!~

How dare you say MK7 failed!
It was successful, it was high-grossing, look at the charts Toadie, then tell US, the whole Nintendo community how MK7 failed.

If it 'failed' for you, why do we care?
Why make a post like this offending almost ALL of us Mario Fans.

If you liked MKDS better, DON'T BRAG ABOUT IT. Just throw your 3DS away, and buy a cr*pload of an old outdated console. Go have fun with cr*ppy graphics while we play with 3D graphics and a fast processor.


If you're so judgemental, don't shout it to the world and ask for a reason, (which is stupid why you have to ask for reasons) just shut up, because that's why we have IGN for.

Oh dear god, really?
read some of the other pages b4 entering your opinion and make yourself look dumb.

It has been stated in at least 3 different pages, that financially it succeeded, but as far as content, roster, single player, and online, it did not deliver.

"Toadie" is not the only one with this opinion. Many people were dissatisfied with single player having low replay value/being way too easy. Honey Queen entered the roster. Not a smart move.

Really the only people that I've seen defending MK7 were MK fanboys.

I think MK7 is one of the best, if not the best. I didnt like DS, Wii was decent, GBA was horrible. MK7 had good online, decent sized roster (even if you dont like the characters), a customization feature, and more.

Oh christ, here we go again, another argument. First off, I'd like to thank you for thinking everyone agrees with you. We all have different opinions, and we can say what we want. We are merely stating our opinions. Great, more graphics n00bs. Graphics don't make a game good. Simply compare Super Mario Bros. 2 to "New" Super Mario Bros. Shuure, you've got the Mega Mushroom, but do you have the vegetable-throwing, Blue Toad playing action packed fun Mario 2 has? Plus, I find it cute on how you think he's "bragging" over MKDS being better. Also, it's hilarious how you're only complaning to Toadie. A lot of people dislike this game for multiple reasons, not just him. Also, Mario Kart 7 left out many things Wii had, including Toadette, Dry Bones, practically any "OLD" character as you like to call them, Team Races, longer battles, humanoid Mii voices (my favorite is C), etc.

Why make a post like this offending almost ALL of us Mario Fans.Those aren't "fans" those are "Fanboys" aka morons.

If you liked MKDS better, DON'T BRAG ABOUT IT.Wasn't bragging, he was just stating his opinion. That's allowed you know. Just throw your 3DS away, and buy a cr*pload of an old outdated console.Uhh what? He doesn't like one game, so he must ditch an entire handheld. What the crap is your logic here. Go have fun with cr*ppy graphics while we play with 3D graphics and a fast processor.*Facepalm* few things, 1. Crap isn't a swear, no need to censor it. 2. graphcis don't matter. 3. the 3D isn't that major a thing anymore. 4. If we cared about graphics, then the Vita would be the way to go, not 3DS...


If you're so judgemental, don't shout it to the world and ask for a reasonIts a forum, we are allowed to discuss opinions. That was what this was. A discussion, the question wasn't "Why", but "Did it fail for you?", (which is stupid why you have to ask for reasons) just shut upYou are not the boss., because that's why we have IGN for.And there is the proof you are a Nintendo Fanboy.
I hate arguing over some one that clearly doesn't get the purpose of a forum, but still.

Actually, I've had this game and have been playing it since Christmas. The only thing I've yet to accomplish is to earn the gold items, which really isn't important to me. I am, however, curious to know what it was that I wrote to lead you to believe that I don't play the game much, or online. It is my understanding that the online dynamics are exactly the same as they are in offline mode, unless you know of a way I can alter the game in online mode? I am respectfully excluding the fact that when I play offline, my race doesn't ever get interrupted due to connectivity or technical issues (or experience "lag"). Please be more specific and share with us your insights. Thank you.

Mario Kart DS had more to offer.

1. Yeah, HOW DARE WE HAVE AN OPINION!??!?!?! WE MUST PRAISE MARIO KART 7 24/...7! YEAH!!!!!

2. I'm a Mario fan and i do not feel offended by people expressing their opinions about a bucking game.

3....wat. So even though the 3DS can play DS games, if we prefer MKDS, we should throw away our damned 200 dollar gaming console and buy a DS, JUST BECAUSE we might not like MK7 as much as MKDS...? Ok then, 7-year-old-kid logic. Oh, BTW kid, "crappy" is not a bad word, so you don't have to censor it ;D

4. Yeah, HOW DARE WE EXPRESS OUR OPI- didn't i say this back in 1.?


Overall kid, i think you might be a little too young to be on the internet.

It must be THExeroh001's first time on the internet, otherwise he'd have foreseen replies like all of the ones posted above me. xD

Well, even though MK7 was a disappointment to me, I still prefer MK7 over MKDS. Looks like I get to keep my 3DS.

Then why did you even post? You're just bringing this thread to the top of the 3DS Mario games subforums. As I am right now but my point still stands

"Fail"? What in the hell do you classify as "failing"? Do you realize that Mario Kart 7 sold more than 8 million units worldwide? If you are comparing it to the Wii and DS in terms of sales, then you are completely misinterpreting the meaning of "fail".

The problem with Mario Kart 7 is that is was released the same year the 3DS was released, in the midst of a disappointing first year in 3DS sales. Mario Kart Wii was released 2 years after the Wii's release, which allowed for the Wii to increase sales exponentially before the release of Mario Kart Wii. Mario Kart DS was released more than a year after the DS's initial release, so same mentality as the Wii, it allowed for a larger consumer base to build before the games initial release.

Once again, Mario Kart 7 released less than a year after the 3DS's release, and again, the 3DS was suffering was terrible initial sales. If Mario Kart 7 had been released the next year instead, sales would have been significantly higher, considering the triumphant turnaround the 3DS pulled off.

Even considering all of that, Mario Kart 7 was anything but a failure. 8 million units is not a failure. In worldwide sales, Mario Kart 7 is still the second best selling game on the Nintendo 3DS, behind only Super Mario 3D Land, and there is still plenty of time for Mario Kart 7 to sell more units.

All of that aside, in my own opinion, Mario Kart 7 is the best Mario Kart in terms of quality, control, and content. And that's coming from someone who has played way too much Mario Kart since the original SNES version.

To consider MK7 a ''failure'' is just absurd, and for 20 years if not more many people love the series. Like Disco stated, the content and controls make it the best Mario Kart. And also, 8 million+ copies sold is not a ''failure''

1.This thread is about a year old, why was this randomly revived?

2. Look at the OP before you post, where were sales even mentioned?

I'm not going to reread a year old thread, but I recall it mainly being whether or not it failed as a fun game, not sales-wise.
EDIT:You don't even need to reread the thread actually, the page just before this showed the argument on the gameplay and not the sales.
