  • Summary: [WiiWare] Rev up your Hot Rod and race up to 3 of your friends! Master death-defying stunts and post your best times online! High Voltage Hot Rod Show is a slick and fast-paced racer that challenges up to four players to tear up the track on a variety of off-road courses, mastering death-defying stunts and building enough Boost to stomp the competition. Players must learn to tame their monster Hot Rods by nailing ramps, power slides, bunny hops, and tricks while avoiding mud pits and smashing through Boost Rings to fill their Boost Meters. Players can compete against seven CPU opponents in Championship mode or set their best lap times in the time trials. Top times can be uploaded to an online scoreboard via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and shared with players around the world. Multiplayer supports up to four players in split-screen mode, giving each player a wide range of controller choices.

  1. The biggest problem in High Voltage Hot Rod Show is its durability, which is not new on WiiWare titles. However, the interesting concept, the good graphics and the world rank will make you play it again in short sessions.
  2. It’s short course list, lack of online play, and easy computer opponents mean that the game will have a short life span unless you bring some friends over to play it with you. Even so, with it’s amusing and easy to pick up and play mechanics, its multiple controller options, and easy on the eyes graphics this is a solid WiiWare release which is worth investigating.
  3. There's so little offered in Hot Rod Show, it feels a lot like one of those trinkets you'd buy from a machine at the grocery store. Still, the game has an undeniable charm, and it's fun in extremely short bursts.
  4. 65
    Now, it's a WiiWare game so it is not going to be as expansive as one might expect of a disc-based game, and as a quick diversion played in short bursts it's enjoyable, but it will grow stale far too soon for most core players.
  5. 60
    The initial game design is decent, but the overall control, camera, and balance isn’t quite there.
