@SKTTR, Since I already own FAST:Racing League, do you think I should still download another racer and purchase 3D Pixel Racing. Or stick with my original plan and buy Kirby's Adventure, someone on the Moto Heroz review page mentioned it has the ability to present itself in 480p. I did take your other suggestions into consideration, but I'm fairly adamant about experiencing the Kirby series in chronological order. I had already beaten Kirby's Dreamland on the Gameboy back in '92. Also, was Kirby's Dreamland 2 a Gameboy exclusive or is it just not available on VC?

Game Boy exclusive

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
...
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.

Damn, then it will most likely be released on the 3DS VC sometime in the future. Screenshots at NL will be posted and I'll be teased. I wish I had the loot to purchase one, just for 3D classics and the other VC titles. )<:
(Why did Nintendo have to rob us Wii owners of the Gameboy VC, with their menu update?)
Have I irritated you @SKTTR? I guess I'll purchase Kirby's Adventure then.

I've also played the demo and I don't see what all the fuss was about in the review...
I mean awarding this a 4/10 seems to imply some seriously broken mechanics and no fun to be had. The game has its flaws but I don't think it's terrible, especially not for 500 points. Based on the demo I'd say a 6/10 would be more fair, but maybe I'm missing some flaw that is more obvious in the full version.

Of the WiiWare racers I've played I recommend MotoHeroz, Excitebike: World Challenge and Art Style light trax.

I'm very interested in getting FAST - Racing League, and a "maybe" for Driift Mania. And if I'm in the mood for online I might give Snowboard Riot a chance.

I don't know about 3D Pixel Racing. Unfortunately we in Europe got no demo.

About Kirby: chronological order makes sense. I'm playing most series the same way.

I own these two racers so far and this what I enjoy about them and the score I'd give them.

FAST: Racing League: The aspect I enjoy most about FAST is the innovation that is present. I really think the color change speed strips are very unique and add a level of strategy that isn't found in most racing titles. The graphics are awesome at 60 fps, but the latter levels of difficulty and the breakneck speeds are a little to advanced for my liking. The amount of content is fair and the tracks are diverse enough to keep some interest alive, but for some odd reason I barely ever come back to this title. In the end when all is said and done I'd award FAST: Racing League an 8.0/10.

Moto Heroz: Well, what can I say about this title that hasn't already been said, it's totally and completely awesome. I've have no real nick picks of this racer, except that I wish it was a bit easier to improve the times on my runs and replicate them eventually. The level design and graphics are superb, from the racers to their vehicles it's just bursting with character and pazazz. The amount of content is unbelievable, I really don't know how RedLynx jammed it all in considering the 40 MB file size limitation. The story mode is huge by itself alone, not to mention the power ups, unlockable buggies and the collectible items that add so much replay value. Then add the online leaderboard and local multiplayer racing modes and you have a physics racer that could've easily been a retail release. Some may complain that it doesn't boast an online multiplayer mode. But with the added buddy leagues you can race your friends ghosts and it's almost like it does, considering they're your friends best attempts at a lowest possible lap time. I'd award Moto Heroz with a 11/10 if it was possible to do so, with that said it easily brings home a perfect 10/10.

With all of this in mind, would anyone recommend I purchase 3D Pixel Racing? I've experienced the demo and I really enjoy the simple and cheerful atmosphere it displays.

@WiiAboutU: I haven't got this title yet. I tried the demo and liked the first person view and control in this mode. The original point of few was confusing. I di find another behind the car view and, for some strange reason the controls seem looser than first person (Kinda wierd).

Thanks anyways @longtimegamer, you receive an "A" for effort. lol
Hopefully someone else who owns this will give their opinion. I know Zach had recommended it, but I'm sure you can tell just how much he loves the racing genre. So his opinion might be a little on the bias side. (<:

Well guys, I couldn't resist and I downloaded it without another recommendation. I have to say I'm enjoying it a lot. I also have to agree with what Zach said, I don't know what the hell Corbs was talking about. The controls aren't difficult at all in my opinion. You just turn into the turns a little early, let off the gas for a second and drift around the bend. I think the controls are what make it unique and enjoyable. Well, besides it's cheerful retro style. I really don't know how Microforum fit everything into only 45 blocks. (<:
