Okay game, leaves you unsatisfied

I admit it, I am a moron for buying this game. the cars are under-done, the cut scenes are lame as can be, there is virtually no storyline, and you can win the entire thing in 10 hours of play, even if you are a completist.
But it does have this to its merit, the controls are tight and responsive and you have the option to select your control scheme, and the customization of the cars is exacting.
Even if you are a fan of the Need for Speed series this game is a SKIP.

sadly disappointed

When I learned that this game was coming out for the Wii I was very excited. I literally created my gamefly account just to get this game. But, when I began to play I was disappointed almost immediately. Previous need for speed games have provided a racing experience that was exciting as well as accessible. This game however is so accessible that it losses all of its fun. The steer assist that is meant to make driving with the Wiimote easier totally ruins the game, and when you shut it off it still seems to be there; just to a lesser extent. In short, if you want to introduce your young child to racing games this is your chance. But, if your an old fan of the need for speed franchise you will probably be sadly disappointed.
