I feel its pretty balanced. If your in first, carry a mushroom, but risk getting hit by someone behind you. You should carry an item with you.

You can use a mushroom, bullet bill, golden mushroom, or star to dodge it, just have to do it at the moment it's about to land on you.

It would be cool to see new items in an update or add on.

I say the items are just as balanced, if not more than the ones from MKDS. Also, you have this magical thing called "Touch Screen" where you can see when someone gets a blue shell and make the 2nd place take it instead of you.

Items in Mario Kart is what makes Mario Kart, Mario Kart. The items have been around in every iteration of Mario Kart as far as I can recall, and they have been even more broken in the past.

If you really don't like the items, well then Mario Kart may just not be the game for you.

With that being said, there are ways and means to deal with items. Look at your touch screen, make a mental note who has what items, make a note where the item boxes are, always carry a star/mushroom if you're in first place, the list goes on.

Just my opinion: As balanced as those freaking smash items in ssb, good thing you can shut it down.

I sold my mk7 and i do not regret it, maybe you should do that too. Usually i cry when i lose my Mario game but not in this case.

I agree with this guy! In MK64 I got lightning in second place twice, not once but twice in the same game! As for MK7, it is very balanced, don't sell your game. If you sell your game then you can't play with your friends in MK7 on your 3DS and you also can't participate in the tourneys here.

Here is what I would do:

1. Make a community that you really like without the items you hate.
2. Give the community code to all your friends via Swapnote
3. Race online with your friends
4. turn it into a compitition with your friends
5. ENJOY! =)

Just don't sell your game, you basically just lose money because they never give you the money back that it costs!

I got lucky MK7 a couple of times. Online, I managed to make the blue shell pass me while I was in first place and attack the people behind me. :D

I always use the following technique: Look at the touch screen, notice the blue shell, slow down a bit so the guy in second place goes pass me (making sure he doesn't have a mushroom or something like that), the shell hits the guy and I continue on in first place.

Have been using this tecnique since MKDS, and it still works.

I wouldn't say it's the items that I hate, what I hate is the luck element of it all. I get pretty annoyed when I keep owning races right up until the last moment, I have my victories taken away from me. But oh well, that's Mario Kart for ya.

Item 'rape' here is a lot worse than MKW, but MKW has some pretty wacky wombo combo's.
I hate items in general. So OP.

That works, too, but Karma quickly catches up to me afterwards. XD

Really??? must be a fanboy or something to not see something wrong with getting hit at least two times by a blue shell in one race and the fact that it seem like it's only purpose on the game is to make the person in first place get in second, third or fourth place. It doesn't help you get ahead at all unless you shoot it and it hits someone in front of you. Or...... maybe you are never in first place for most of your races! The blue shell should hit everyone; not just the person in first place!

I only think it's annoying how the last place items are. I mean if you're in last place, as in 8th place, do you get a bullet bill, golden mushroom, or star every time? The computer characters always do. Me? 3 mushrooms if you're lucky, 1 typically. The Lucky 7 is a cool power, but it is soo rare to get. I have had it like 3 times ever, and the computer gets it not too often either. Tanooki tail, is alright but only at the right place. Fire flower is pretty good. But should not be a 3rd place-ish power. If you're even close to the people ahead of you, just a quick x10 presses of the trigger and you're almost always going to hit them (twice if you're lucky)

Lastly I noticed something, unlike Mario Kart DS, shooting red turtle shells backwards makes them behave like green turtle shells. In Mario Kart DS it would follow the track, until it passed 8th place, hit an object, or went too far. Why does it not do that anymore? Now the lucky red turtle shell in 1st place might as well be green. EDIT: And they don't bounce light green ones either.
