    Excite Truck for the Wii was one of the first racing games for the system and showed players that driving using motion controls can be easy. Excite Truck wasn't without it's flaws, but it was fun to play. ExciteBots seem to have took a look in itself and decided to really push the 'excite' and tricks from Excite Truck. What happens comes a game which plays like the Excite Truck.. but looks and feels like a cartoon episode of Excite Truck. The game can be very fun, especially if you're hitting all the tricks and getting high scores, but if you're not then the repeated red bars and jarring sport challenges and items will disrupt the game play. Several tracks return in an almost copy and paste fashion with a few new 'required' tricks to pull off. Overall, Excitebots just feels like a step backwards. Expand

  1. The game's motion controls work great with either the Wii Remote or the Wii Wheel, and are a little more forgiving than in Excite Truck. [May 2009, p.87]

    It tries everything, and is maybe a bit too crazy for its own good, but it's definitely unforgettable. Your mileage will vary in accordance with your sanity.

    Excitebots Trick Racing is a great racing experience that I sincerely hope gets more attention and recognition than Excite Trucks ever did. Monster Games' previous effort was fantastic, but this unofficial sequel is better in just about every regard.
