Excite truck is a game I would never normally play.Racing games don't usually appeal to me. I heard so many good things about it though , that I decided to pick it up. THis game is a blast. The way you use the wiimote to control the truck is a lot of fun. The game is challenging without being frustrating. Nice track variety. Huge selection of cars and plenty of unlockable stuff. The game also has a next gen look while retaining the nostalgic NES feel that I love so much. Great job Nintendo! MAybe this isnt the hardcore racing fan title. However if you're not a fan of racing , check it out! You'll be surprised.

Wow, this one is great! It's got an amazing sense of speed(comparable to Burnout), crazy jumps/bumps/crashes, Graphics/frame rate, unlockables, and it controls great as long you're not whipping the Wii-mote around like a madman.
It has a great Tutorial mode that you have to pass before playing any of the races, which helps out big time(only the air spins are way too hard and kinda pointless to attempt in an actual race.) I also love how close and intense all the races are, you never feel like you are playing a time-trial, or not standing a chance at finishing in a top spot.
the environments look incredible, draw distance is awesome, frame rate even in multi-player is flawless. the ONLY things I feel are missing are maybe a system link option because the split screen can be a little tough at times when you are flying off jumps at top speed not being able to see where the track is, and a couple more multi-player modes. Other than that...buy this game! this is probably the most fun i've had on the Wii yet.

Excite truck is a great deal of fun. the controls are tight and their is enough variety in the tracks to keep you interested. its remarkably easy to pick up and play for anyone and has a moderate difficulty for those who like a challenge. if you want a driving game to finish out your collection i recommend this one.
