When I first got this game, I thought it was going to tell the story about the Jamaican Bobsled team. But nope, it isn’t.
Sled Shred is just another average to bad racer on the Wii; you get a small selection of tracks and even smaller selection of sleds. When you first start playing, you can only use the inner tube and have to go through each of the eight tracks several times.
In each race, you have to finish first or second in order to move on to the next races. After all eight races for the inner tube are won, you repeat the process with a circular sled, and two types of wooden sleds.
When you get through all that, then you get onto the bobsled tracks (there are 4 of them) and you start with the two man bobsled.
Again, you have to finish first or second on each track to go on to the next one. After going through all four tracks with the 2 man team, you do it again with the 4 man bobsled.
Sounds bland and boring, doesn’t it? Well, it is because the presentation of this game is about as flat as you can get; you go straight from one track to the next, one sled/bobsled to the next. This game gets very tedious very quickly.
And the races aren’t that much better. Sled Shred tries to be Mario Sled Wii with tricks, speed boosts, and snowballs in the non-bobsled tracks - but this game doesn’t have the variety of weapons or tracks Mario Kart Wii does. Besides, the bobsled tracks are extremely bland and forgettable.
Want to play the game’s multiplayer rounds? Well, you can when you first get the game, but only two tracks are unlocked. To unlock the rest, you’ll have to slog your way through the single player Story Mode - not something I like to see in a game that supposed to have multiplayer action.
Sled Shred - just another lackluster Wii racing game trying to cash in on your hard earned money. SKIP IT.
