I liked the control mechanism which used the sideways Wii remote as a steering wheel. (I suspect it would be even better with the wheel attachment). The control felt precise to me. The cel-shaded graphics were an interesting touch but in the end felt a bit too much like they belonged in a much older game. The single player racing levels were nicely laid out but it felt very basic and repetitive after a few races. If one is looking for a simple, well-controlled racer, this is not a bad game but it didn't have the depth in graphics or game play to maintain interest for a long time.
This is the worst looking game I've seen in a long time. I've seen better looking PS1 racing games, couple of them now that I think about it. The screenshots hide how bad this game looks. Its truly a travesty for the Wii.
This game seems rushed and has no sense of accomplishment. While playing the AI seem to just drive themselves with no type of competition in mind. They just aimlessly drive to the finishline. Also the graphics are pretty boring which goes along with the lack of sound effects. Controls are in between arcade and precise. So they are easy to get used to but not specific enough for a great driving experience. Only thing good about this game are the choices of cars. Though they look like it was created on the PS1.
