  1. There’s some charm to the cheesy interviews and the upgrades like the fold-down barbecue grill, but Pimp My Ride is such a flimsy game - so plain, so bare. It's catchy enough to play once or twice, but it can’t hold a candle to Burnout.
  2. Not only have no changes been made to the gameplay since its release nearly two years ago, but the newly reformatted control scheme just feels unnecessary. Controlling your clunker with the Wii-mote feels overly loose and unresponsive and any other use for the controller just involves shaking the Wii-mote up and down throughout the title's tediously boring mini-games.
  3. An interesting premise, but the poor execution throws a spanner into the works.
  4. Basically, they're hoping Wii owners will pay full price for the same poorly contrived mash-up of driving and minigames that's been collecting dust in the PS2, PSP, and Xbox 360 bargain bins for a while now.
