Excitebots Trick Racing

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The WMG saw Excitebots Trick Racing for sale on Black Friday, and checked to make sure it had not already been reviewed. For some odd reason Nintendo had quietly released this sequel (of sorts) to Excite Truck. When Family Friendly Gaming does not report on a game, it is always reason for caution. After reading this review, you will know whether or not you should spend your money on this Wii game. The vehicles are part robot, part vehicle, and they look like animals.

  • Summary: About 10 minutes into this game, I thought Monster Games had taken leave of its senses. Instead of a monster truck, I'm racing a goofy, frog-shaped ersatz Transformer? Two hours later, I was hooked. While it still features the fun, speed, and deforming environments from Excite Truck, the game throws you curveballs at every turn.

Nintendo Improves on the Excite Truck Formula

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: You spend as much time dealing with all the crazy goings on as you do racing. That's a good thing Graphics: Things haven't changed much from the first game, but I'll take the basic look given all the action onscreen Sound: I wanted to turn the sound off because the music was so bad, but I couldn't because the gameplay sound effects are useful Playability: The mid-air spins reveal an inconsistent and underdeveloped trick system, and the cars intentionally feel...

ExciteBots: Trick Racing Review

Cheat Code Central
28 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The Wii has a great controller for racing, but so far it hasn't seen too many good racing games. Excite Truck was one exception, and ExciteBots is most certainly another: it's enjoyable, fast, challenging, and delightfully absurd. It's not a perfect game by any stretch, but it's definitely worthy of a place in any racing fan's library.

High-octane racing game leaves you charmed and breathless.

Common Sense Media
26 July 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that while there is a bit of fantasy violence, it's only of a cartoon nature. Players will whack others to make them crash so that they can get ahead. This game can be played online, a feature that Common Sense Media does not recommend for anyone under the age of 12 unless supervised.

Excitebots: Trick Racing

  • Excerpt: Excitebots: Trick Racing is a new title brought to us by the creators of the classic Nintendo game Excite Bike. Excite Bike was one of the first games I owned for my Nintendo and I remember spending countless hours creating my own stunt tracks to put my dirt bikes through. With Excitebots: Trick Racing being released for the Wii, those fond memories came to mind and created quite a bit of nostalgia me.

ExciteBots: Trick Racing (Wii) Review

Vooks
17 June 2009
  • Excerpt: I’m going to be very honest here – I wasn’t expecting much from ExciteBots when I first received it for review. I didn’t overly enjoy ExciteTruck either since I never really got into it. So, as you could expect, I was skeptical as to how a game made by the same developer in a similar vein was announced and released within such a short time frame. Needless to say, ExciteBots is a brilliant game with some unique twists to the racing genre that really sets it apart.

ExciteBots: Trick Racing (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
13 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Without a doubt, fans of Excite Truck will find the unexpectedly announced ExciteBots: Trick Racing to be a thrill ride. The second Excite title in just under three years improves upon its predecessor in most regards with faster gameplay, extraordinary over-the-top tracks, an updated robotic theme, and unique online play.

Excitebots: Trick Racing review (WII)

HonestGamers
12 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Each time you manage a long power slide, you could earn anywhere from one to five stars. Launching into the air and staying there for a lengthy period of time also yields a similar reward, as does weaving between perilous stands of trees or even crashing spectacularly. There's a substantial bonus if you cross the finish line first, but the person who wins is ultimately the one who bags the most stars.
