Has anyone tried Excite Bots if so how is it?
Not yet. I was hesitant at first, but all the reviews are very positive no matter where you look. I will still hold out for a gamefly rental first before I buy.
Oh, and I love me some Mario Kart any day of the week.

While Mario Kart Wii is an amazing racing game, Excitebots: Trick Racing and Excite Truck are by far the best racing titles I've played this generation.

Excitebots is the most fun I've had with the Wii since Super Mario Galaxy. What a fun game!

So far my favorite is Excite Truck and Mario Kart Wii (Haven't played Excitebots yet )

We just got Excitebots & it is a riot! The tracks have a great, crazy variety & I love earning pts by doing crazy tricks. MK is fun but it ultimately I get tired of the arbitrary nature of losing at the last minute because of getting hit by items. Excite really keeps things moving FAST & doesn`t rely so much on screwing over your competitors.

I am not that much into multiplayer in racing, so here is a pure single player point of view:Ferrari Challenge - the best one if you want some "serious racing". Mediocre Graphics and laggy menu can be forgiven. Motion controlls work. Great collection of authentic Ferrari cars and famous world wide tracks like Monza, Hockenheim or Spa. Much to unlock. Game comes with a powerfull paint-job editor.
My opinion is the same. Hope the future Formula 1 - 2009 is at least that good.

Not a big Mario Kart fan, and thus I haven't played it.
Excite Truck has been my favorite Wii racer since launch.

Excitebots, hands down. Mario Kart's items and computer AI are so atrociously unbalanced, I never want to play it again - I enjoyed Nascar Kart Racing 100 times more. (Which you should check out, it's a very fun kart racer.)

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

It looks fun, but I haven't played it either. Seems really more like a Kart-style game than an Excite game from what I've seen though... And there isn't enough over Kart and it's constant tourneys and ghost matches that compells me to throw another $50 at this title right now. Also really disappointed they took out Mp3 support (Excitetruck had it) and didn't push for WiiSpeak, at least in Friend matches.

@ chatham i kno that would have been awesome i dont understand y wiispeak is not gettin pushed more i would have bought wii speak if excitebots had it

To the above 2 posters :
I have it, and it is great. It is very much like Excite Trucks, excpet more polished and more action. There are ZERO kart like activities, all the odd ball activites in there are for points. (exactly like Excite Trucks) It has online and it is simple, but fun. You have to balance pure speed with point gathering. After the first racer takes the flags the other 5 bots have 30 seconds to cross the line to get their score, or they get a zero. Online is both for competition (it keeps stats) and fun, but also the fastest way to make money off all the unlockables. Friend codes if you want private games or tourneys, or regional, whatever.
And the music is better than Excite Trucks, so the SD card thing is not a big deal. You can turn the music down under options and turn on your radio, lol. As far as WIi Speak support being a preresiquite to buying this game, I just do not see it. There is really no reason for it to be included, and if you need Wii Speak in a wIi game to buy it, I guess you ain't bought a game since Animal Crossing???
Suit yourselves, of course, but if those are really the reaosns keeping you away from Excitebots, frankly that is lame in my eyes. The game cannot be 'made' or 'failed' from 2 little incidental options. Good grief, quite frankly....its a great arcade racer and $40 new. Can't beat that.
Hardcore, casual = marketing. The real divide is between arcade and narrative games.

@above posterTaking features out of a series isn't a way to attract newcomers. It doesn't offer much more than Kart in my eyes. These features didn't make or break my purchase, but after already owning Kart and Exitetruck... Why bother? I'll wait until we have a racer with more connectivity and originality. And no, I don't have Animal Crossing, because I have better thing to do than collect all day. Nintendo has no excuse to keep WiiSpeak out of 1st party titles now. I'll be buying WiiSpeak for The Conduit myself.
@ALDAWGZWiiSpeak will sell hotcakes when The Conduit comes out, and then maybe Ninty will get the idea that if they want to move the hardware, they have to make more software availible that supports it... Not just one lame title and a channel.

I still think F-zero GX for GCN is still the best racer you can play on the Wii.
38. Posted: Wed 29th Apr 2009 20:27 BST
Well Monster games made this game, so it is 2nd party, and I think you perhaps are somewhat immature. You can buy whatever you like, but I just find it funny that you think you need such a small feature to enjoy this game.
Excite Trucks is not about talking to you opponenets, it is about taking it to them and outperforming them. Talk is cheap, afterall.
Wii Speak makes or breaks the Wii and every game released for it? Good grief, that is funny.
39. Posted: Wed 29th Apr 2009 20:28 BST
@PawtrickI love the F-Zero GX, my local Gameworks has F-Zero AX (which uses my data from GX on my GCN Card)... So I play that ALOT!
Now an online F-Zero on the Wii... That would get my $50. It'd have to be 12-player minimum though.
@eugenewrayburnI never said WiiSpeak makes or breaks a title. I think you are immature for not reading and making assumptions. I have 30 Wii titles, not one of them has WiiSpeak. And getting hung up over 1st and 2nd party is ridiculous if you had any idea how development works in those situations. It would just be nice to see Nintendo actually support a peripheral they've been boasting for awhile... With only one title supporting it. (Which I still don't own, and never will, so I don't get where your assumptions are coming from).

I am just saying YOU are hung up on misconceptions and bizarre and apparently unconsistent game buying requirments - as is Wii SPeak is suddenly a MUST on every Wii game published by Nintendo from today unitl the sun fall out of the sky....
As I said, I could care less if you get this or not, its just your stated reasons for NOT getting it are goofy :
1. It is the same kind of game as Mario Kart, and I already have Mario Kart (it is nothing like a kart racer)2. It is not origional (false)3.It does not have WIi Speak or SD card support (big deal, not a negative on gameplay at all)
