Game Profile

Art Style: light trax takes racing to whole new (and very surreal) levels as you control a white beam of light moving perpetually forward while your viewpoint shifts between 2-D and 3-D perspectives.

Start by choosing one of the two main modes of game play, each with its own distinct goal. In light tours mode, you vie with other light beams for the most points in a three-course racing tour. Watch out for obstacles, use items and strategically use your dash ability to finish first. In freeway mode, your objective is to set a high score by traveling the greatest distance within a set amount of time.

Mastering the intricacies of each setting is crucial: you’ll have to alternate between them in order to progress through the game and unlock all of its modes. With precise controls packed in and a driving techno soundtrack, Art Style: light trax offers an experience unlike any other. Are you ready to compete in a mind-bending race at the speed of light?

Hidden gems galore?

A lot of today's game titles might not say much to some people, but rest assured there's some good picks in this bunch. WiiWare gets three games, two of them great, and one not-yet-reviewed-but-very-likely-also-great. DSiWare's got five new titles of which the only reviewed one is good as well. The rest of the bunch could be more sleeper hits - Or not! The Virtual Console sadly..

still waiting for review. Come on, it's your JOB to play these games all day, why wouldn't you pick this one first??? Looks so good but who knows could also be one of those "good yet flawed" 7 or 6s.

@winter123: the Nintendo Life staff are all volunteers. no one here is paid to "play these games all day"; we all have day jobs (some, like myself, even work two!) and our own IRL stuff to deal with. It's only been out for a day. please be patient.

This game would be one of my top three favourite Wiiware games ever if they had AT LEAST online scoreboards. This game could have been so much better. Online multiplayer, LOCAL multiplayer at least... But still, it's fun. (Would have MILLIONS more replay value if they added the features I mentioned)
