  1. While the ability to steer with the wiimote may be a selling point, I’d much rather have a great racing game with precise controls and intensely accurate graphics. The novelty of building your own tracks is lost if there is no one to share them with.
  2. The sound is mediocre, the graphics are the same, and the controls aren't as tight as they should be. Top it off with gameplay that is both boring and challenging due to lack of AI balance and bugs, and you have a recipe for sub-par gaming.

    I'm an adult playing this game often with a friend, and I would rate it a 5/10, not an awful review and not a stellar review, and I'm giving it such a confusing review because this game makes me puzzled in a way that it shouldn't.

    What I love about the game is that it is a four player car racing game. I have done multiplayer immediately with a friend and it has worked. However, here's the part that makes me puzzled. How do I unlock better features for the cars? My friend and I have spent hours racing tracks and even winning against the high performing computer cars in solo modes, but there has not been a way for features to have unlocked. I'm wondering if features are unlocked in the tournament modes only, and that's a shame because the computer racing cars are high performing and are very difficult to beat we haven't been able to achieve that.

    As a result, we play with such boring and limited car options. It's ok, but could be better. And in addition, another thing that's puzzling is the game can glitch while you are racing the cars. Easily, if the car gets off the track it can get stuck and no way to fix it unless starting over. If the car stays on the track, then wii remote controls work great. Good graphics, music, and sound overall.

    Aside from the glitches and the confusion about how to upgrade things, this is still a decent playable car game. I am keeping this in my collection for now, but am waiting for something better to replace it with. I value the game to be at about $10-15. You can build your own race tracks on this game too, but that is tedious and something I don't do with this game.
