A Great Proof of Concept, But Not A Great Game 0

Excite Truck, a Wii launch title, is an arcade-styled racing game similar to Burnout.  Though there is a lot to like about this game, its lack of content and occasionally wonky controls hold the game back.  Excite Truck represents an excellent 'proof of concept'.  The unique racing experience and the controls, for the most part, create a thrilling, fun game.  But future games in the series need to add more of just about everything and refine the core gameplay.  Excite Truck is a new entry into t...

It's...How do I put this..? Exciting! 0

Excite Truck was one of the first Racing Games released for Nintendo's Wii. Based on the Excite Bike Series of days gone by, it takes a tricks and scoring-based approach, with players ranked based on the number of Stars they earn in a race by performing various stunts and so on as well as finishing position.Since it's a Wii title, the racing is handled using motion controls, with the Wii Remote acting as a Steering Wheel - which is an experience greatly enhanced by the Wii Wheel or a third party...

There's that new control scheme, there's that old junk. 0

 Excite Trucks is one of the many games released alongside the Wii. One of the few racing games to the Wii, it has brought a new idea to Nintendo that has changed how gamers will today play most of their more better racing games on the Wii.Before you can really do much, you need to do the tutorial. It get extremly annoying, but when you get done with it, nothing gets much better. It doesn't seem to offer much besides 2-player. The race tracks won't addict you, nor will the race cars. There aren'...

The lack of depth and truck feel to the game lets it down. 0

Excite Truck is basically a super fast truck racing game with immense jumps and speed developed by Monster Games Inc. The game is a 'sequel' to the game which debuted on the Famicom, ExciteBike.The game as it is involves you picking a truck, racing with it and trying to rack up your stars and hopefully come first in the race. You work your way through each of the cups in hope to become an ultimate truck racer - however, there is no storyline (not that a game like this particularly needs it).The ...

BingeGamer's LttP Review of Excite Truck 0

Excite Truck came on the scene during the Wii's launch, giving it very little chance among gamers wanting their Twilight Princess and the hyped at the time, Red Steel. Even within the genre of racing itself, Ubisoft (Monster 4×4) and EA (Need for Speed) had games ready for launch. So fast forward to present day, it is easy to see that Excite Truck’s window of opportunity has past, but I am left wondering why every so often I still see posts on forums speaking highly of this title. First off, t...
