Summary: Let me just put this plain and simple: This game is BAD. First off, the actual gameplay is quite different from the screenshots shown in the back of the box. The box shows what you would initially expect; a mini RC racing game zipping across obstacles like cups, rulers, books, etc. However, when you actually play the game, it's horribly different. The camera angle is "bird's-eye" view instead of the usual (and more appropriate) "behind-the-car" view.
Summary: This game was very, VERY dissapointing. I hope anyone thinking about buying this game doesn't. Mini Desktop Racing is the worst experience in gaming I have ever seen. One; The controls are undeniably horrid. I bought two wheels with this game, and was dissapointed we couldn't even use them. You hold the wii remote normally, and use 'B' to power forward instead of 'A'.
Summary: well this could have been fun if this used a nunchuck or a gamecube controller, but this is just a big mess because you have to point the remote at the screen and twist the remote. this makes the game control badly and not to mention the fact that you can get stuck in odd places.
Summary: Very disappointed in this game. I thought it was going to be fun but it's just hard to play. You can't use a wheel with this but it doesn't say that anywhere. the graphics are terrible and it's hard to see what you are doing. I had very high expectations I suppose but I'm going to be looking to get rid of this game asap.
Summary: Never made it off the first track the controls are so sensitive the slightest quiver sent me crashing. The idea was cute your little toy car has to contend with rulers pencils and other over sized objects as it speed along the course . The graphics were better then expected. The sound has no music only sound effects. If the sensibility was turned down and they added some actual music it could be fun.
Summary: I wish I had read the reviews before buying this game. On the shelf, it looks great. We played for about 10 minutes and then gave up. I could say all sorts of reasons to not buy this game, but I won't even waste my time. It's horrible. Plain and simple. Such a shame, could've been cool, as it's a neat concept. I rely on reviews here at Amazon, to help me make informed buying choices. I hope this review has helped you in the same manner.
Summary: I really like the concept for this game. My nieces and myself were very excited when we received it in the mail. That excitement quickly wore off when we stated playing it. The game is way to difficult from the menu on. My older niece is pretty video game savvy and she could barely make it throught the menu. Then we started racing. THe game would've been wonderful, but the view killed all of that.
Thank heavens I now have a coaster for my drink!!!

Summary: Please listen to the other reviews. I love the Wii and I love racing games, but this is not the game you are looking for. Go and buy Mario Cart. I've had more fun clipping my fingernails than playing this game. The only thing this game is good for is to use the disc as a coaster for my drinking glass.
