Video Game Review
Developer: Monster Games
If Wii owners are hoping for a Gran Turismo clone, they’ll have a lot of trouble finding one. Racing simulators like Gran Turismo rely on powerful hardware as the foundation for their high quality graphics engines. The Wii simply isn’t powerful enough. Therefore, the emphasis has to be more on a fun experience rather than one that takes a page from real life. At the launch of the Wii, Nintendo made sure that there was a fun and exciting racing experience on the system with Excite Truck. While it might not be the prettiest racing game out on the market, it’s a great game nonetheless.
