In Excite Truck from Monster games, the goal is ultimate carnage. Participating in global races, you are actually rewarded for the most amount of damage you create. With Wii owners currently snapping up the latest version of Mario Kart to be released for the format, it's good to see an example of how enjoyable an arcade type race game can be. I wasn't disappointed. Although it took zero inspiration to come up with the name, it can't be denied that it does exactly what it says on the case. It is guaranteed to excite, I quickly became addicted. Main menu Tutorials:- I began working through the tutorial section to get used to ... Read the complete review

Excite Truck was one of the Wii's launch titles and whilst it shows some age compared to more recent title I think it's good for what it's worth- a fun arcade racing game. Gameplay is simple: you choose a truck (each one having different stats and colours) and race it on different tracks around the world. However the objective isn't primarily gaining first place but collecting a certain number of stars. Stars are earned in various ways: drifting, getting air, doing spins, driving through trees without crashing and more. This is a pretty unique feature that distinguishes Excite Truck from other racing games on the market, plus I liked that the emphasis wasn't ... Read the complete review

Although the name sounds pretty bad (Excite Truck is a pretty good name from a 5th grader at least), this semi-sequel to the NES classic Excitebike hit is still one damn fine racing game that introduced us Wii owners to a whole new way to play these type of arcade-like driving games. In this very intense 3D racer you try to out run the competition while surviving the dangerous off road environments just like a million other video games out there. Before you dismiss it the game though it has this cool way to move your truck around. Holding the Wii-mote to the side with two hands like a old fashion controller will let you to steer left and right depending how ... Read the complete review

I had a lot of fun with Excite Truck when I first played it. There is little here that is original, but there is something very exhilarating about racing through some of the courses in this game. The controls are as you would expect; hold buttons for break and accelerate and tilt the controller to steer. There is also a boost facility which you must use wisely to get the most out of it. The game isn't all just about winning races, the longevity of the game is improved by having side-quests that require users to gather stars by performing certain feats in the game such as super-long drifts, long air-time, performing air stunts and narrowly missing ...

Before you immediately dismiss this game as being a generic racer you're forgeting one thing...Wii Control. To control your vehicle you hold the Wii mote sideways and use the "2" button to accelerate and "1" to brake. To steer you simply tilt the controller and your vehicle will turn. This is what makes the game so much fun - the innovative control system. This system makes the game a lot more fun to play than simply pressing a joystick a certain way, in fact many people will probably prefer this as it will actually have some similarity to driving a real vehicle. The graphics in the game may seem pretty basic but they aren't too bad and add ... Read the complete review
