"The Racing Game you've been waiting for!"4.5 starson by Stubby Gutski
Pros: Intuitive, easy to use system. Quick startup that even young children can learn quickly.
Cons: Setting down the wheel presses the "b" button
Summary: I brought Mario Kart Wii home hoping for that fun racing game, and I was not disappointed. Setting up the wheel was simple (buying a second wheel is recommended and inexpensive) and we were off to the races. The menus were a bit much to wade through the first time, complicated by the need to aim the remote while it was in the wheel. (My 7 year old daughter had difficulty with that concept - she kept setting the wheel on the ground or on her lap and hitting the "b" button -backing us out of the selections).
Game play was awesome! The visuals are crisp and varied, with a wide variety of courses and vehicles to choose from Control with the wheel is intuitive. The game can be as simple as "press the accelerator and drive" for the young ones, and challenging enough with drifting and gadgets to keep adults entertained. Having never played in this series before, I quickly picked up on the different shells made use of them. Strongly recommended for family fun!
