This game is the reason i bought my Wii last week....I cant wait !!! Can anyone confirm yet if the classic controller can be used????? I really hope so !!! Some games just arent as fun with the wiimote.....their sometimes less fun and more complicated....Anyone else feel like that sometimes? Im willing to try out the Wii wheel that comes with the game but I can already see the wheel getting to inaccurate and frustrateing during game play. I got my money on the good old classic controller ! MARIO KART HITS STORES 4/27/08 RESERVE A COPY NOW !!!
