Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass Wave 5 reviewed and ranked

Mario Kart DLC Wave 5

Starring Kamek

It’s interesting to see how public perception of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass has changed since we’ve actually gotten our hands on the tracks. Before the first wave hit the Switch, there seemed to be a lot of animosity toward the DLC. People were mad that it wasn’t a new game or that the added tracks didn’t have the same vivid art direction as those native to Deluxe.

Yet here we are on Wave 5 and all that negativity is gone. I’m not seeing it on the socials as much as I used to. And while that might be because my main social is being driven into the ground by a butter-bodied billionaire who names his kids like they’re fan-fiction Star Trek characters, I’d like to think that people are realizing more Mario Kart is always good and just having fun with it.

Which is why it’s good Nintendo didn’t start this DLC campaign with the tracks of Wave 5. Because overall, this set’s pretty mid.

I know not every Mario Kart track is a masterpiece. With the Booster Course Pass adding 48 tracks to the game, we were bound to get some duds in there. But there is something about this wave that just didn’t click with me. Even with a brand-new track in the mix, I’m not sure the Feather Cup and Cherry Cup hit on all cylinders as they should as the penultimate wave of the DLC. Nevertheless, like the other waves in the Booster Course Pass, I am ready to rank and review these eight tracks.
