Star Cup Is the Very Best Cup in 'Mario Kart 8'


Because if it’s not a Star, it’s not coming in.

Absolutely agreed. I find that for some reason the Star Cup tends to be the best - it certainly is in 64 and Wii. I think it’s partially because it’s well-situated. Of the four original cups in each game, Star Cup comes third. This means its courses can be more difficult and interesting than the two prior cups, but aren’t as frustrating as Special Cup. The obligatory Rainbow Road and Bowser Castle also limit the opportunities for creativity in Special, whereas anything can happen in a Star Cup.
