Carrera GO! Mario Kart 8
Overall Auto Express Rating

2.0 out of 5

Price: £55

The high point of this set is the cars – Mario and Luigi look absolutely fantastic. After that, however, it all goes wrong. The unfathomable instructions mate with a poorly designed track linking system – we accidentally broke some clips while taking it apart. The loop-the-loop looks interesting, but falls down in practice – quite literally, as it’s a real art to get around it. This set is too difficult for children and too childish for adults.
