Summary: My kids really enjoy this game (they are 5 and 9 years old, boy and girl)and I like it too (quite a bit older). Its very versatile in that you can play against other people or play by yourself. It has three different types of competition and alot of tracks and cars to choose from. The graphics and the scenes are very imaginative and cool looking. Most race games you get tired of but this one has so much variety I think it will be a long time before we are tired of it.
Summary: Bought this game to work with the logitech steering wheel. (currently only 4 games work with this wheel)the game and graphics are great and even the wheel is a lot of fun with all the feedback it gives. The only downside is that the game is too difficult for my kid 7. The speeds at which the cars drive are like light speed (theme outerspace). def. for older gamers.
Summary: Well this game is HARD, so if you don't like spending between 30 minutes to an hour to get the hang of driving in it then it's probably not the game for you. Second off the game has a great sense of speed and realistic physics which is great since you won't experience any auto-driving of games like Speed Racer.
Up to EIGHT players simultaneous multiplayer. Ideal for the Logitech force-feedback wheel.

Summary: Surprisngly, you can play up to EIGHT players simultaneously on one screen with this game, which makes for a great party situation. I can understand what people are saying about the difficulty when using the wiimote... while not impossible it can be a bit finicky. I find the controls and responsiveness to be most robust when using the Logitech force-feedback wheel, for which this game is compatible (up to 4 force-feedback wheels at a time).
Summary: The graphics are horrible, the controls are horrible, the concept was great. It is almost like they wanted to bring an F-Zero style game to the Wii but failed horribly. The controls are so bad that even with the Wii steering wheel (which this game is one of the few that supports it) I was flying off the track often due to the small margin of error and the poor controls. The graphics remind me of something you would see in a 32 bit system; not in the Wii.
Summary: The game is a bit different from other racers providing as others have said more of an arcade feel. The controls are very subtle if you try to steer hard you will fall out of the course. The main problem with this is that a great part of the course is in the air or over cliffs. I guess the game would be an aquired taste. You will need to be patient and practice a lot before you can stay on track for a whole race.
Summary: This is a very difficult game. The tracks are complicated and the race seems to be faster than the controler will respond. I would not try this game unless you have been racing video games for years.
Summary: My son just got SpeedZone for his 7th birthday and he loves it! He says it's "awesome" and best of all it's just a fun game, very kid friendly. No violence, cool graphics and his friends can play at the same time. A bonus on a rainy day!
Summary: This is a fun game that appeals to a more serious racing fan. Although you can play this casually and still have a great experience, it's all the details and upgrades you can earn and add to your car that take the gameplay to another level. The tracks are unique and there's plenty to unlock. The steering and controls take some time but what game doesn't? For a Wii game, the graphics push the limit.
