  1. There will inevitably be some racing game fans that will find enough good in this title to warrant a purchase, but the broken gameplay, cheap AI, and dismal visuals will likely be more than enough to scare everyone else off.
  2. We're at a loss. How this game ever got to be released is unfathomable. [Issue#26, p.80]
  3. Nothing about this game is good. It's one of the most horrible games ever made.
  4. There's more fun to be had in reading instruction manuals for toasters. [Oct 2008, p.75]

    This is as bad as it gets. SPOGS Racing is ugly, boring, and sports some of the worst racing AI ever. It's an absolute joke that D2C is charging money for this. SPOGS looks like someone's first go at homebrew developing.
  6. You really have to see it to believe it. That said: don't see it. [Oct 2008, p.84]
  7. SPOGS Racing at least gets the honour of being the worst game on WiiWare. It looks awful and it plays even worse. It's the most inept game I've played on any format, in any genre, in recent memory.

    Wii owners can be assured that this is one of the finest, if not the finest, releases for the console so far. It is a celebration of the car, but even more, a celebration of the joy to be had in driving. A+++ Expand

    A fantastic example of a game-play perfection! The beautiful life-like graphics, intuitive gameplay, and responsive controls bring the pure thrills of racing to life! Newcomers and veteran racing fans alike will both heavily enjoy this game! Expand

    I rather buy myself a meal at In N out for $5 than buy this for 48. This game sickens me.

    I actually bought this pile of tripe, before reading all the reviews. I read the part in the games summery which said.."Customisable racers", and I thought awesome. So an impulse purchase, but I haven't stopped regretting it since. If your a racing fan and want to buy a game on WiiWare, buy Megaman 9 Expand

    I just don`t know why this ~game~is rated E, because it should`ve been rated EC. Then again, we wouldn`t want younger gamers to be traumatized by this piece of butt chocolate, then passing on there brain damaged intelligents (as a result of playing this atrocity) onto other generations. The part is that it`s DOWNLOADABLE, which probably means some kid or unfourtunate family or soul right now is downloading it after reading that lying discription on the Wii Shop Channel. ~This game is a must buy~.....if you want to tourture yourself. It`s shovelware of the highest order. Expand
