New way to race

This game takes your regular race game, and makes you think twice. You need the nun chuck to play this. The basic idea is finish first, and use items to slow other racers. I liked the idea of being able to reach a max speed, though some characters max speed is slow. The ability to get speed boosts was a good idea. The ability to attack obstacle and other racers is nice as well. Short cuts with barrels are available, as well with a sword fish, from what I saw. Moving around the track was easy, even the needed jumps. My 3yr old was able to play this game to race. I found some of the challenges a real pain, and got sick of playing the same 3 races. If you have the time to figure out how to unlock other race tracks, and enjoy simplistic games this is for you. I think if more race tracks were available from the start it would have held my interest longer. I played with 2 players and had a good time for the most part.

I have no idea why they had to make it so that you had to move your arms like that it's very repetitious and I 'm sure they were meaning very good intentions on this style of gaming but this is down right torture and really if your not a kid with adhd then you really can't pull this off and the meaning of having to go out and buy more nunchuks so everyone else can play is down right ingenious marketing but like I said before if you wanna have a coronary bypass in the future please refrain from picking this title, your better off getting it for the kids it surely will tire them out. but for this old gamer this is far from the other wii-esque style gaming that I like in other games. I think I'm turning it back in for the kids to rent so they can burn off there infinite energy way to go Nintendo!!!!!
