    We picked up a Wii for Christmas and I have been trying some of the games for it but I was looking for a good racing game and not sure what one is tops. We are looking for good multitplayer. Suggestions?

    and that's the ONLY good (not great) racing game for the Wii. Well, unless you wanna grab Mario Kart 64 for the VC.

    ^ Word, The other racing games I've tried on Wii are awful.
    Wii-remote as steering wheel = do not want.

    I can only pray they put in an alternate control method for Mariokart Wii.

    There is going to be a racing game called Indy 500 Legends, in March I think. Who knows if it will be good.

    is it true you can use the Classic controller, as opposed to the tilting wii-remote controls?

    Depends on the game.

    Now that we are going into the second year of the Wii's lifespan we should start seeing better games.

    Problem with most racing games were that the developers just did a quick port of a PS2 game or just didn't put the effort into polishing up the controls (Actually that can be said about most 3rd party games).


    Hopefully this will be improving.

    Excite Truck is fun, but it got boring really quick.

    I had been thinking of gettin GT for the wii, but I havn't seen anyone mention it. Has anyone tried it?

    GT is bad, not as bad as the big truck or the NFS series. But the controls seemed very sluggish to respond

    How old is Excite Truck? I haven't seen it in any stores or for rent. Is it an eBay item?
