Racing game is entertaining

I like this racing game. It was my first ever racing game for the Wii. The controls can ve complicated, though.

The adults out there might remember the old Excite Bike. Excite Truck is a "sequel" supposedly based on the same concept. The thrill of Excite Bike was getting big air off of jumps and trying to land them perfectly.
Excite Truck does deliver a good thrill as you're flying hundreds of feet up in the air and trying to steer your truck to hit the ground right,but that's hardly a main point of the game.
The most exciting part of Excite Truck is the amazing speeds you can be thrown at when you land perfectly or drive through a POW item that makes you less vulnerable to everything.
The main mode is Excite Race where you compete in cups against five other CPUs. This is the only mode worth coming back to over and over again. You use the 2 button on the Wii remote to accelerate, 1 to brake, the control pad to accelerate, and the Wii remote itself to steer.
The main objective of each race is to reach the required number of stars. You collect starts by taking risks or pulling of pretty much anything that makes you say "That was awesome!"
Parents note that your kids will be rewarded with starts for "truck smashing" other players. Nothing graphic, just Trucks flying. Overall, Excite Truck makes one heck of an extremely speedy racer!

Good game for Children

The game is a very good game. The child could learn how to drive with the wii-mote holding sideways. Even though the game has some violence

A great racing game from start to finish!

Exicite truck is a great wii game that every racer fan should have. You might be thinking it's a average racing game and all you do is go to start to finish. You are wronge! It depends on stars. You get these stars by beging high up in the air, landing nice, running though trees without getting hurt and drifts. It's a very different than other racing games and using the wii remote what else could you ask for!
