Bad

I'm not going to talk on this because it isn't worth my time. I will saythat the crontrolls are horrible and very touchy. The tricks never seem to happen, races are short, all in all, it was not worth my time.

Mechanical bug racing...?

I think this game MAY entice a younger crowd. I could be wrong. I tried it because I enjoy racing games of all types. I just didn't enjoy this one. (and I did play through it all) You start off with the "school" class of races, and others are unlocked as you win and gain stars.
The controls are limited to the Wii Remote or the Wii Wheel. If your good with either of these, your in luck. I got used to the controls, but still prefer the option of using the classic controller.
The tracks and their little minigames are silly. Again, I tried not to count the game out because of it's "look"...if I did that, I'd have missed out on ALOT of great games. But this just wasn't one of them.

More of the same, but that's good right?

This game is just like excite truck, only with more stuff... which is a good thing... sort of... you even get to play some of the old tracks, which is nice.

I have mixed feelings about this game. It was nice to know how to mostly play the game already, having played excite truck. I'm not totally sure I like the new grabbing the bar thing that happens throughout a race.

This game will entertain and frustrate you as you try and get the Super rating on all of the tracks.

If you liked excite Truck you should like this game.

If you like unrealistic racing games, you'll probably like this game

If you like realistic racing and true physics, then this is not the game for you, but you probably knew that from the "excite" part of the name.
