Summary: This game is exactly what I was hoping it would be. My 3 yo plays Mario Cart and I was looking for something as easy to drive but with a different theme. This game takes place in a Utopian city that needs a hero to put out fires, rescue people and chase bad guys. I would say it is similar to Grand Theft Auto in that it has a huge map of highways and roads to drive around, missions to complete and a lot of different police, fire and rescue vehicles.
Summary: This is a great game that kept my 10 year old occupied for days. It was the only thing he would play with on Christmas morning and several days after. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is he completed it within a week. He does like to go back and play it even though he has completed it. He likes the car crashing part!
Summary: Being a FF I thought this game would be more realistic. It is like watching a cartoon on Saturday morning. You ride around on missions and push buttons and steer is all it is to the game. Even my wife said this game was stupid. Anyway, good for a kid but not an adult, that is why I am giving it a low rating.
Summary: I just bought this game today and must say that I am impressed. I love it. It's lots of fun. I love crashing through the walls in the hospital! It's easy to follow the arrows to rescue people or put out fires. I stopped a speeder as well. I am worried that it's above my son's age group (he's 4) but I think he'll grow into it. It might be something even my non-gamer husband will enjoy.
Summary: I found this title to be quite entertaining. I gave it a quick playthrough to see if it was awful or not and I found that I kind of liked it. Its a fast-paced driving game where you have to get to the scene of whatever emergency is going on and stop it from happening. You drive to the scene of a guy down and then proceed to do cpr on him and with the wii-mote it's fairly entertaining.
Open driving feel, diff trucks/cars, good wii tilt control, bugs

Summary: I rented this & forgot it was targeting a younger audience. You're always in a car, so all menu & controls is by wii wheel/tilt way. It's loose, so you do turn the wii a full 45º to turn. You can drive around, then use a GPS green arrows to direct you to spots for missions. When you do well, you get up in rank & open up new types of cars like fire trucks that spray water with the push of A button, slow ramming car that can go through anything, etc.
Summary: I had the pleasure of playing a preview version of this game before it was released and it was allot of addictive fun. The graphics are very unique to the Wii, I havent seen anything this good on Wii since its release, its a science fiction world, large bladerunner esque buildings, tokyo hotels and a really bizare funpark ride that I can only describe as 'trippy'.
