All 48 tracks are open from the start an absolute bucket load of charcactors to play as.
You unlock karts and parrts with gold coins you collect from the races.
There is a feature where you can stay on the track and not come off it... i turned it off for 50cc 100cc 150cc and mirror mode.
This game has 200cc and boy at that entry is the game rapid!!! I need to use the stay on track on this speed.
I'm working on getting gold cups in the 200cc grand prixs and it's quite challenging and intense!!
The game is pretty much arcade racer perfection at this point.
It looks and plays wonderfully.
It's currently my most played switch game and I have Mario Odyssey(finished it) and Breath of the wild (didn"t like it) in my collection.
The replayability is in trying to get the gold cups!!
I think when ii've done that I'd still enjoy enjoy replaying through this game at a later day.
I imagine if you do multiplayer or play with friends this game could have a much much longer lasting life.
I can really not think of anything i'd change about this game, apart from that black gloop that you get hit with!!!
It is annoying and briefly makes the game look ugly! Lol Pretty sure not many players would miss that if they remove it from future games.

For kids/parents the "Keep on track" control mode will be very useful and prevent those tears on rainbow road (of which there are three versions!). For many players there is also a "always on" accelerator option, but while it saves your thumb a little, I suggest you learn how to use the breaks for this. Both bumper controls work for items/drifting so however you hold the controller this will work for you. You can also switch between using the joystick, D-pad or using tilt controls in either gamepad, pro controller or joycon modes.
It's a classic multiplayer game that everyone can have a good time with.
The multiplayer is very fun, you can hook it up to the TV and control your cart with one controller. You can choose to either have the motion sensor or rely on the joystick, I personally prefer joystick as I move around a lot when playing video games.
It's a fun game for all family ages, and something that will help pass the time for when you're board or just want to do something fun.
