Buy Need For Speed Carbon instead of this
on 25 March 2008
There's nothing that this game does that Need For Speed Carbon doesn't already do better.
It's a decent arcade game, and the Wiimote control for the steering is spot on. The game is super-fast and very manic, and a good laugh.
However there are too many problems with it that will make you not go back to it too often. After every two-player race, even the same race played twice, you have to take 30 seconds to select all your settings again, then each track can take about 30 seconds just to load- annoying since each track tends to only be a couple of minutes' gameplay.
The graphics are poor but not terrible, just a bit dated-looking. The worst thing about the graphics is that the on-screen messages, "GO!", "Checkpoint" etc. are *right* in the middle of the action so for the few seconds each message appears, you can't actually see where you're going- nobody thought that one through, did they?
A bit of fun as a budget title but too irritating to keep you entertained for long.
