Fast and frantic fun for all the family.....
on 28 January 2008
I bought this game a few days ago and, so far, so good.....apart from the fact that my 5 year old son is already managing to beat me regularly. The game is fast and very entertaining with a good selection of courses and very open game play - if you build up a lead you tend to be hauled back in fairly often, meaning that each race holds its appeal and stays open right until the end. Whilst skill is needed, a fair bit of luck is also key and whilst this may disappoint some hard core pure gamers, in my book this makes it an ideal family game. The controls are good - you use both the remote and the nunchuck, shaking both to get up to top speed and then shaking the nunchuck to go left, the remote to go right and lifting both to go higher. Overall, it is a great game that should keep the family entertained and can be played off a fairly level playing field by people of all ages. Still early days but I think it will have lasting appeal and, overall, highly recommended if you are looking for a bit of light-hearted, frantic fun and a great option until Mario Kart finally hits the Wii.
