I got this game to tide me over until Mario Kart 8 comes out in Spring 2014 and this game exceeded my expectations. There are some things about it that I like better than Mario Kart. I really enjoy the transforming vehicles and I think that adds a lot to the gameplay and the diversity of each course. I enjoy all of the unlockable characters in the World Tour, and how there are several different types of races rather than just traditional races (Drift Race, Boost Race, Battle Race, and one where item pickups are missiles and you have to chase a tank and destroy it). The great news is, you can play multiplayer pretty much within any part of the game, whether it's World Tour, Grand Prix, or just a couple Single Races.
My only qualm is that it can be a little bit glitchy. I played with a friend for days with no problems, but when other friends were also over and wanted to play, we were playing with 5 people total and the game froze after 3 races. This was kind of disappointing because we were all having a lot of fun. It might have been a fluke, but it's something to keep in mind. Other than that, this game is fantastic and I would definitely recommend it to someone who enjoys racing games.
