 great

I cannot believe people are putting this game down, got this game for my 4 year old who picked up the controls straight away. i suggest that people read the age on the box as this is a 3+ game. The saying cant teach an old dog new tricks comes to mind. my advice is leave it for the toddlers.

 Don't buy this game.

I loved the old PC game Micro Machines, and I thought this might follow in this theme. How wrong I was.

It's almost impossible to stay on the track as the controls are terrible. The controller is held normally in your hand, not rotated like most racing games.

The graphics are not great - no HDTV.

Don't waste your money on this. Its rubbish.

 FUN FUN FUN

I bought this game and to be honest i wasnt expecting much! However after playing it, it brought back memories of the old micro machine games! its a reli fun style of game and i dont think il get bored of this for a while!
Its not all perfect tho as to turn u need to tilt the wii remote, this will not be a problem once you have played it for a while but it does take alot of getting used to and i think that children may not master subtle movements!!!
However for the price, i certainly would not hesitate on buying it!!!!

 Rubbish controls, good physics

| | See all IainBenson's reviews (3)

In terms of in game physics, the game is spot on. Your cars can knock things over and push them out of the way. The graphics are good, and the track layouts well thought out.

Unfortunately, the game is completely unplayable due to the awful control system. In order to turn the car you twist the remote about it's long axis, and this is really hard to get right. It's so difficult that even with a few hours practice I was still unable to control the car with any degree of accuracy, and I consider myself quite good at computer games with a wide variety of control systems.

Wait for version two when Popcorn have figured out how to use the Wii-Mote correctly. FIFA 08 was shocking to control, but 09 got it right. Hopefully, Popcorn will do the same.

 Hard to Control

| | See all Lottie1908's reviews (69)

In a nutshell ... This game is very hard to control. After repeatedly trying on a number of occassions i still cannot get it, and neither can anyone else i know.
My advice ... Don't bother with it.
