    I just traded in my FreezeBox 360 P.O.S. for a Wii and I don't know why I ever left Nintendo. This game is not the first I've played on the Wii but it is one of the funnest!! I totally LOVED Excite Truck and was not too sure about this one and holy Bat Bots it is awesome!! No it's not Burnout or Grand Turismo BUT it is very fast and graphics wise better than Excite Truck. The spinning action is WAY better on this game than the previous offering and all the bots are different in speed, grip, turbo power and tricks. And some bots are better suited to certain courses than others. I played this for MUCH longer than 5 minutes for sure. I do with there were more courses but they remedied that with lots of different ways to go and shortcuts within the courses which multiply in number the further along you get. Give it a whirl!

    As someone who played excitetruck and couldn't wait to take this game home and try it out, I enjoyed it tons. This is by no means wii shovelware and the developers spent many hours working hard on it. I must agree though the bugs do make the game extremly childish but it allows for new gameplay mechanics (running mode, and gliding mode). If you can get over the fact that your controling a bug then this game is well worth your time. There are TONS of unlockables and modes like poker race where players try to collect cards and create the best poker hand in return of stars. This game take everything that was good about excitetrucks and makes it much better, as well, and minigames also add to the fun. I am by no means a wii fanboy, but this title is a quality game and it deseves the 4/5 xplay gave it.
    Ps. the red bars are really important to beating the levels since there can be 1 or 2 each lap and it there 2 laps thats a max of 40 stars just from spinning on the bar.
    Pps. this game is great plus its only $35
