Summary: The Bad: The Wii graphics are not the ones shown on the screen-shots, just not cool IMHO. They are much more scaled down. Game stop should enforce a policy for game makers to show real product is for each specific game platform (not just the hires ones). Then the cars always seems to handle like its driving on ice. The tracks have very narrow paths and silly little stones cant stop you dead or flip you not matter what vehicle your in.
Summary: I bought this game despite reading other people's reviews which were generally negative, I wanted a decent racing game for the Wii and not a cartoonish Mario Kart. Having been used to PC racing games of the Need for Speed Genre, I wasnt expecting high end graphics but they were indeed disappointing as everyone else commented. If you can live with the bad graphics then you would atleast expect decent gameplay but even that is bad..
Summary: Having played and thoroughly enjoyed the previous versions of this game on the old Xbox, this is a real (and unwelcome) departure in terms of style. Everything is far more 'arcadey' than the older games and the controls are infuriating in the extreme. Yes, if you persevere then there is some fun to be had, but it shouldn't be this hard to get enjoyment from a game. The older Colin McRae games were challenging enough, but you felt as though your efforts were rewarded.
Summary: I sold my copy of Need for Speed in order to get this, and now I wish I'd kept NFS instead. I found the visuals to be poor in terms of Wii standards and the driving experience was sadly lacking. I found the controls unresponsive and sluggish at times which would lead to me crashing, and then it would suddenly be all over the shop.
