@sykotek: While the first class is more or less a walk in the park I can ensure you that difficulty is turned up quite some notches in the two later classes.

I'm having second thoughts about buying this today....is there enough content here to justify a purchase? I mean 1000 points is starting to sound a little steep...

I´m not sure about buying it, i think it´s kinda short game for 1000 points, maybe 12 tracks can be played in one hour and with no online there is no much replay value. Can first class be played in another difficulty? i.g. in Mario Kart Wii Mushroom Cup can be played in 50 cc, 100cc or 150cc.

There are twelve tracks and three difficulties. They are pretty challenging, especially the later difficulties (only finished the first one). Apart from that, there is a challenge mode with a lot of missions. Those are very challenging. You can expect things like finishing a track (other then the twelve in de normal mode) in a certain amount of time, or collecting items, reaching a certain speed. Stuff like that.

About the speed, is it really looking that slow? I think it's pretty fast paced. The second difficulty seems even faster.

I wonder if it's like Mario Kart, where the higher the difficulty the faster you go. :3

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

I can't believe there is no online play I would have thought it would have been a no brainer for this kinda game. I will still end up getting it but I'm in no rush now that I know that very disappointing.

@pixelman, I think that's the case because the second league appears to be a lot more faster then the first one.

@Splat, there was probably no room for online play in just the WiiWare size. Maybe a retail would have it included.

Holy crap this game is good :O At least it has the splitscreen multiplayer, though an online mode would have been swell.

Just beat the first league and unlocked a new machine.

How many different racers can you unlock? Are the courses diverse enough? Is there lots of different music?

It looks like there's plenty of racers to unlock, and the courses are pretty different from each other (and they get tougher as you unlock more). The music didn't seem to vary too much but it's still a good soundtrack.

I ended up buying it and am quite pleased! The first league under the easiest difficulty is no push-over like I thought it would be. I got 5th place my first time through, 3rd on my next time through, and then 1st on the third try. i love the sense of speed and the controls are right up there with Mario Kart Wii! Also, the inclusion of those challenges is nice and should considerably extend playability. They are very difficult! Can't wait for this weekend when I'll try multiplayer with my step sis. Really glad I ended up getting this game! The only flaw is no online which would have been great for a game like this. But the file size is at 320 blocks which, as far as I know, is the absolute maximum so there was virtually no room for online components. I'll blame Ninty's file restrictions on this one. Still a great game though!

This looks nothing like F-Zero and seems more in tune with WipeOut than anything. That video above though displayed one gorgeous environment, that's the stype of stuff i love to see! Beautiful stuff! B-) Anyways, aside from maybe F-Zero I don't like Racers without weapons, and the speed looks a little on the slower side....Hell, do you realise how much better F-Zero alone would be if they added weapons in?

Anyways, I'm not too sure about this one....Besides, why do I get the feeling that Ninendo is going to announce a new F-Zero at E3?LOL eh, who knows.

And also, it's funny seeing WiiWare titles such as FAST, Jet Rocket and Rage of the Gladiator...They all seem like lower end budget weaker attemps at the big boys that they're trying to compare to like F-Zero, Super Mario Galaxy and Punch-Out!!....Rage on the other hand still seems quite awesome for what it is. But with Jett Rocket...you have to ask yourself, "why?" It looks like an insanely generic uninspired platformer with pretty visuals....Why would i want to waste my time with that when there are MUCH better 3D platformers out there on the Wii? I guess people get excited with any 'pretty' looking WiiWare title or when something actually decent comes along. :p

I did this video a couple hours ago. I plan to do at least one more, probably one where I'm playing on the hardest difficulty. And yes, the game gets faster as you move away from the first difficulty.

@WaveBoy, you can't compare downloadble titles like FAST, Jett Rocket and Rage of the Gladiator with retail games like F-Zero (or Wipe-Out), Super Mario Galaxy and Punch-Out. They have to work with a very small amount of space in comparison to a disk, they have considerably less money to spend then Nintendo to produce the games and less people to work on it. So naturally it will miss some features or will be lacking in some departments. Then again, it's also a lot cheaper then big game titles.
