    This game is very fun and addictive, I guarantee you'll fall in love with it as soon as you start playing it.

    Gameplay (9.5/10) The overall gameplay is very fun and addicting, but it can get pretty tricky at times. The game has you racing at high speed trying to get as many stars as possible, and the more st...

    Take Mario Kart, add in multiple race paths, crank up the speed 300%, and give you a transformer. This game is a blast!

    First, the negative: I think Nintendo missed a monster here by only releasing this game in the US, and not even telling us about it. I got lucky and saw a random post on another board, and since that...

    Took me by surprise.

    Rated on December 15, 2009 by jimjayjenkins

    This game at first didn't really call me. I have to be honest - I seriously relied on the reviews on this one before I got it. As you play the first 2 races, it starts getting real fun and challenging...

    Surprisingly addictive and fun! A very pleasant surprise.

    First of all, do not judge this great racing game by its cover. Just starting to play, and once you learn the basic movements to accumulate points, this game will catch you and you will not stop to pl...

    If you want a gravity defying game for your Wii, brake down and get Excitebots: Trick Racing.

    Rated on December 22, 2010 by Blueguy93

    Final score: 9.1/10 (A-) The first time I played Excitebots on the Wii was at my friend Justin's house. He claimed it was one of his favorite games ever. So I decided to play it, and I never let go...

    This game gets better every time you play it.

    Rated on April 26, 2009 by Purarnick

    I only played it for like 5 hours with my friend and I'm already very addicted. The game resembles Mario Kart in how the series are set up but I think it's better. The bots are better and their stats ...

    ExciteBots is the very definition of "fun"

    Rated on April 27, 2009 by blankshore

    Combine the big jumps of Excite Truck, the high speed thrills of F-Zero, add the wacky item-happy gameplay of Mario Kart, subtract the randomness and frustration, and you've got Excitebots. Sound craz...

    simple boost-paced casual fun!

    Rated on April 29, 2009 by maven_zer09

    Wii was with casual fun in mind, and this doesn't mean that it is suited only to casual players. I consider myself a hardcore gamer, but I do really enjoy most of the Wii games, because they manage to...

    This is ExciteTruck Minus the Best Feature...Supplying your own Music! WHY WOULD THEY REMOVE THAT?

    Rated on May 15, 2009 by condelirios

    ExciteBots is an interesting sequel to ExiciteTruck. It has very nice graphics and some interesting new takes on things with the robots standing in for the trucks. However... the Soccer Ball kno...
