A solid wii racer
on 20 October 2008
Having read some of the reviews posted on amazon I was unsure whether to purchase this game, but being a petrolhead and options limited on the wii I decided to go for it. I must say I really enjoy this game and since I purchased it having played it non-stop. Firstly the graphics for the WII i think are really good at least on a par with need for speed pro street.
You can customise your cars and put flags, icons and alter the paint job being Welsh ive created 'dragon' racing and added the welsh logo to my ferraris !!!!! during the game there marshall's who are animated and the track and environment feel solid. The number of cars on the wii whilst racing seem limited to 8 as opposed to around 16 on the PS3 whilst this is a dissapointment you rarely notice as you try and beat the computer opposition who believe me do pose a challenge.
I would advise to start off with the tutorial and do a few practice laps prior to moving onto the other game modes which include quick race, series racing etc..... You have a whole host of assists and i now race with most assists on and in my view the most essential one is when you approach bends a braking line so you can enjoy the driving and know when to hit the brakes !!! The handling is fine and I cant see why other gamers have complained about this.
A great game and having played pc racers and games from the late 1970's this for the wii is a solid purchase !! oh yes before i forget superb sound effects and music !!!!
