I got Mario Kart Wii and then that's it. MK DS is really the only one that I truly loved.

How's the handling and controls in MK 8, pretty good? I'm thinking of buying one of the pro controllers for switch, unless there have been more kinds of controllers released recently.

It's good. Get the DLC.

DS had adventure mode, the first online mode and overall fun tracks, so it's one of the high points of the series. If you liked Wii, you'll probably like 8. I feel they screwed the bikes though.

That being said, there's no proper battle mode like in the rest of the series. You never really notice the gravity stuff (unlike like F-Zero GX) unless you watch a replay and notice you were racing upside down the whole time.

8 is better in almost every way.
I'm sick of off topic threads and abusive mods.

Compared to DS? DS has a better battle mode, but that's pretty much it.

Mario Kart Wii is still my favorite too. I bought it at launch and played it online almost every day while the official servers were still up. Mario Kart 8 and Deluxe are prettier but MKWii has the best overall gameplay, IMO.

DS also has a mission mode (so far the only game to do so), but I would probably recommend forgetting about MK8 till you can get a Switch and the Switch version (which has a good battle mode among other additions).
