In the grand racing tradition of Excitebike, get ready for a big-air experience like no other! Players rocket their trucks across dynamically changing terrain in this nitrous-injected, high-flying racer for speed junkies. Showing the Wii Remote controller's versatility, players tilt the controller on its side to turn it into a wireless steering wheel!
Body English: Remember tilting your arms while playing Excitebike to try to make your character land a huge jump? That experience is finally a reality with Excite Truck.
Controller as a Steering Wheel: Players hold the Wii Remote like an NES controller to control the truck. The 2 button is the accelerator, the 1 button is the brake, the + Control Pad is the turbo... but that's just the beginning. Tilt the Wii Remote controller right and left like a steering wheel to steer. Once the truck goes airborne, tilt the Wii Remote controller every which way to line up the wheels for landing boosts.
Dynamic Terrain: Pick up items on the courses to make the terrain deform in real time, turning innocent bumps into massive launch pads that affect not only the player's route, but that of his or her rivals. Players jump and bump their way to the highest score and highest finish.

5 out of 5 eggsSay "Wii!" with a fun title.

Pros: Easy to learn - Fun to play - Hours of entertainment - Unique control style - Very good visuals - Great sound - Plenty of action.

Cons: Takes a little practice to steer- but that's not really a con.

Other Thoughts: Great game, but a tad bit short. Not to worry! Buy a couple more Wiimotes and have tons of fun with family and friends. :D

4 out of 5 eggsExcite Truck Wii

Pros: Not a bad game for your average joe. Doesnt take long to learn the ropes of driving.

Cons: Getting through the levels is pretty easy. No way to just cruise around by yourself and do tricks and jumps on your own.

3 out of 5 eggsRent it.

Pros: The game is pretty fun for a while. the control scheme is pretty cool. You can play music in game off of your SD card.

Cons: Where do i start? the graphics are terrible. like REALLY bad. I've got component cables, am using 480p on a HD LCD 32", and its just...bad. Sometimes, its like they didnt even try. the music is absolutley horrible. definitely turn it off, or use your own. its really bad heavy metal. and although fun, it gets old after a while.

Other Thoughts: I would say rent it for sure. an $8 rental is much better than $50.

4 out of 5 eggsone EXCITE-ng game

Pros: this game is fun to play, you actually use the wii turned sideways like the NES. There are plenty of vehicles to unlock. You get nitro to use on some awesome jumps. Multplayer head to head was also pretty fun.

Cons: if you don't take the time to learn the controls you find this game difficult due to the tight steering response. But this is what I expect from a game titled "Excite Truck", having played "Excite Bike" on the NES. Easy to spin out while driving.

Other Thoughts: played this on a 50inch DLP and the game graphics were average as others have sugguested. maybe you should hold out for Excite Truck 2. DOn't buy this game if you are looking for a workout, like boxing.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for quick gaming

Pros: The game is definitely fun. Single player mode is awesome with lots of trucks and tracks to unlock. Good repeatable game play. The control is pretty responsive too; no misinterpreted movements. Nice if you just want to pick up a controller and race for 5-10 minutes here and there.

Cons: Multiplayer lacks a bit. Like the other posts mentioned, it's only 2 player, and you can't add computer players to compete against. Understandably, that's probably why they called it "Vs" mode instead of multiplayer.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good game. Fun for those of us who don't want to put the time into a long story like zelda.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Game

Pros: Very fast pace and exciting game play. Single player mode is very fun. Control scheme is great and takes full advantage of the Wii's inovative controller.

Cons: Multi player mode, while fun for a while, still lacks a lot. For one thing it is only two players, and on top of that it has no real options to vary the gameplay.

Other Thoughts: This is a good game.

5 out of 5 eggsFor a good time play

Pros: Wow, what a fun game. Really shows off how responsive the controller can be with a good game. The scenery is nice and getting points for knocking your opponents off the course is a plus.

Cons: Can't put computer opponents with more than one player.

Other Thoughts: In general, I'm more of a PC gamer so the Wii is a nice change of place. Many people complain that it does not look as good as 360 or PS3, but its not supposed to look that good, its supposed to be fun to play and it does that well.

5 out of 5 eggsFun Launch Title

Pros: Fun and Fast Gameplay, Customizable Music, Fun Series of Unlockable trucks and tracks.

Cons: Standard music blows, no 2 player with computers

Other Thoughts: Anti-wii people even got into it. everyone will like this game, male or female, old or young...
