  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. Nothing about this game is good. It's one of the most horrible games ever made.

    There's more fun to be had in reading instruction manuals for toasters. [Oct 2008, p.75]

    We're at a loss. How this game ever got to be released is unfathomable. [Issue#26, p.80]

    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. 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.

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.
