Blistering off-road racing for the thrill-seeker in you

Excite Truck

 

If there was ever a game title at odds with itself, surely Excite Truck is it. Let's face it; trucks aren't very exciting at all, are they? Huge hulking monstrosities that mostly carry fruit, vegetables and general produce from A to B, whilst also...

Excite Truck (Wii) review

 

Excite bike. Long time ago, eh? Well finally the series makes a comeback and tears onto Nintendo's super-popular new console, the Wii. There are already a few racing games on Wii, all trying to ride on the fact that you can tilt the Wiimote to drive....

Like all good things, this should be enjoyed in moderation.

Excite Truck

 

Excite Truck could well remain the best racer on the Wii for quite some time. It could have been so much more than a 'good' racer though.

Some hidden depth ; Looks impressive

Tilt controls don't feel quite right ; Awful music

Excite Truck feels like it could have used a few extra months of polish. A more involving main mode of play and online support would have made the world of difference, but it's still an entertaining game. The likes of Wave Race 64 and 1080 were among...

ExciteBike started off as a one-off NES dirt bike racing title that built up a strong reputation over the years due to its sheer class, style and quality, plus the fact that even back then there was a comprehensive track creation mode included. So high...

ExciteTruck may not live up to its amazing NES and N64 predecessors, but it certainly holds its own on the Wii so far, proving to be a far better racing experience than both Ubisoft's efforts, Disney's Cars and EA's Need for Speed: Carbon...and yet it...

Excite Truck (Wii) review

 

It really is quite exciting...

In terms of content it should have been a budget title, but at least it's fun and stays true to the Excitebike formula.

Excite Truck (2007)

 

With its Elvin warriors, cartoon sports and midget-tossing challenges, the Wii isn't the place to be if you want realistic gaming. But even by Nintendo's freakish standards, Excite Truck is a bewildering experience.

Excite Truck

 

Short and sweet, it's by far the quickest fix for Wii racing fans

Bigly enjoyable, tinily brief. If you've got the money, this is worth a punt but you'll wish there was a bit more to it. If nothing else, there's potential for a better sequel.

Excite Truck (Wii)

 

In a world dominated by trucks, only one man (or girl, or robot?!) has the power to control them… and that's you!

Excite Truck

 

It's simple really - drive your truck along a bumpy circuit, use your turbo booster as much as possible to surge over ridiculously high jumps and try not to crash. Usually the main aim of a racing game would be to finish first, and that's also true...

Great fun ; Speed freaks will love the turbo boosts ; Good tutorials ; Use your own songs in races ; Graphics are better than most Wii racing games

Overly forgiving of crashes ; Wider selection of power-ups would have been nice ; Only one or two players ; Complete the Normal mode easily in a day

Some things aren't so great though, like being awarded stars for crashing. A bad driver could potentially earn more stars than a good one purely by skidding around the place and crashing into trees a lot, which is rather unfair. The trucks all seem to...

Product Specifications

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! Excite Truck doesn't hide the fact that it's an arcade racer. You won't be modifying your rig with aftermarket parts or racing to win the heart of some flag-waving girl. You will, however, go fast - very fast. It would be easy to stay on the dirt path that defines the racetrack, but if you plan on truly winning in Excite Truck, you have to go off road and in the air. Your true success in each race is based on a star system. The more stars you get by performing stunts, drifts and more, the better your rank. Netting lots of stars is not for the feint of heart. You'll need to cruise through fields of trees, launch yourself high in the air, hang on around curves for dear life and smash the daylights out of other trucks. All this and you still want to finish the race in first place. Excite Truck lets you customize the in-game music you race to. Download an MP3 to an SD card and explore Excite Truck's sound options to hear the tunes you want. The speed of the game is one thing, going fast to tunes that get you pumped up makes the game a pulse-pounding experience. Simulated driving interaction and an off-road free-for-all make Excite Truck a fun, involving game.
