If you like excite trucks then you will love this game its basicly the same game with better graphics and some twist in the races like in the middle of the race youll have to kick a field or throw a dart just a bunch of diff. things that makes this game different and interestingly fun. its definatly worth a rent its pretty addictive. the online multiplaer is pretty cool too. you can bet stars on your races to save up to by new bots, theres also somthing called a poker race havent got to try this mode out yet but i bet its pretty cool.

This game is as much fun as excite truck but with cooler things to drive. Everything about this game is good except there are there bars that you have to grab on to and spin the wiimote to launch yourself and they get old and annoying fast.

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.
