The Wii hardware isn't quite powerful enough to deliver a realistic sim-racing experience, but that doesn't mean Nintendo can't cross the finish line. Excitebots: Trick Racing is a new arcade-style cartoon racing game that delivers easy to learn play mechanics, a fun assortment of mini-games and online multiplayer.
According to reviewer Rob Manuel:
"The influence of Mario Kart is hard to argue when so many others try to copy it’s easy to pick up and play style along with a wide appeal. Never satisfied cornering the market on this kart racing games, Nintendo tries to push the genre once again by creating a racing game that has perhaps veered off the racing spectrum all together.
Excitebots: Trick Racing practically fills every muddy path with tricks and treats while leaving gear heads behind in the dust."
