I thought the game was okay, not for the hardcore racing gamer though. I thought the variety of tracks were subpar and was often too easy to win. Now if you plan of playing this game with friends it is a winner. I thought it borrowed a lot from MarioKart but wasnt as much fun. I think the playability of this game is high at first, but drops dramatically after a while, then you will find yourself going back to race Mario and all his friends. A must buy for the gamer who enjoys a little head to head competition, but if you are looking for more of a single player, challenging game then I would suggest looking elsewhere. I thought the graphics were okay, but not great. Everyone has the same car, just different paint jobs. You dont get to customize, or anything. The championship circuit is the same old thing over and over, with an occasional new track thrown in. I was excited to get it, but now hardly play anymore.

Well after I watched some videos from the Nintendo Channel I got crazy over this game when the nintendo channel released the videos. This Game lets you use all combinations of controllers to play the game and that I really love about it. But the one thing I didn't like is the way they talked they sound like blah, blah and making weird noises but you can get with the voices. The Power-ups are nice to take on the other racers and my power-up is the free pass one this lets you get to the front of the pack and battle first place with your rivals. I liked the way Ea created their own fantasy drivers like Luke Trigger, Shakes McDaniel, Bobby Backfire, Billy Backfire. The tracks are well made too like Talladega super speedway or daytona super speedway which is they made it into a cool race track with their own twist also in Dover I loved how they added Miles the Dover Monster under the track.

I really don't understand the big deal of this game. Take away the NASCAR name and really this game gets boring quick. It doesn't compare at all to Mario Kart so if you already have Mario Kart then don't buy this game because you'll be disappointed. I'll admit I bought this game because my son and I are avid NASCAR fans and we liked the idea of racing Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon over Mario and Luigi. Boy were we wrong! The tracks are very very childish and the voices of the drivers are out right retarded. It really sounds bad. We tried to give this game a chance but after an hour of playing it, it was back to Gamestop to return it. LIke I said if you have Mario Kart don't even bother with this game. If you want something with NASCAR in it then just get the real EA Sports NASCAR 09. I realize this is more for kids but really they'll get bored real quick and $** for a days play is not worth it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by steve bauer this game is great.
I just got this game, and i will say that it's a lot of fun. I hope they come out with more nascar WII games because it's a lot of fun to play this game. There is only one thing i don't like about it is there are only 12 drivers and you can unlock 2 more. But that's the only thing i have bad to say about it. If anyone likes racing you got to get this its nothing like any other racing speed game this is a lot better. The other best part about it is you can throw bombs to the drivers in front of you to slow them down. And the other thing i like is you can throw oil on the track and they slide on it and it slows them down its so cool. But the one thing i'm so glad i got was the nerf steering wheel it's a lot better with the wheel. It makes it easier to play the game. As soon as i got this game i played it i never played a game as long as i did the nascar kart racing game. You will enjoy the game.

This game is the best. Their are pros and cons for this game. The pros of this game is that it is a challange. Also I like the power ups you can use. They have oil spills, rockets, dynamite, a free pass thing that if you are in the back it takes you up to first place and hits and spins out anybody in the way, a boost can that gives you an unlimited amount of boost for a couple seconds, and a shockwave that sends out energy burst that spins out anybody near you. Now to the cons of the game. The cons of the game is that they need to put in more drivers in the game to make it more fun to play. Also they need to make the tracks more realistic and make more of them. The voices of the drivers is kind of corny because it sounds like blah blah blah and all kinds of weird noises. Other than that the game is worth getting and you will get addicted once you play it.

Love it! Love it! Love it! Oh by the way, I loved it! I was around when Pong came out at the local go-cart track/mini golf/moon bounce/pinball games/ place that all of us kids hung out at! Jump to the 21st century and I finally got around to trying my first Wii, and love it! Wow, I had tons of fun flying all over the place trying to see if I could win these drivers who are tossing bombs, oil, and other things at each other. Talk about a very different look to NASCAR! Would love to see a Monster Mile track for the real cup drivers to challenge themselves with the hard hitting rock monster that lives below the track. That must be what happened to my real life cup driver, he seems to have gone missing after a race there! This is so much better then that bouncing ball and two lines that moved up and down way back when.
Rated 10 out of 10 by PTmn08 Game worth buying
I purchased this game because i am a big nascar fan and a fan of mario kart.. It was a great buy.. its similar to mario kart as far as controls and graphics. Easy to learn gameplay and plenty of unlockables to keep you busy for awhile. You get power boosts and stuff to use on the other drivers similar mario kart.. The whole theme of this game is to work together with your teammate, which could take a little time to get used to but once you do, it is alot of fun.. Real nascar drivers and sponsors on the cars make it more realistic and fun.. Basically this is a nascar themed mario kart.. not as good as mario kart in my eyes, but close.. Only downfall to this game is NO online play!! Yes a very big downfall but still in all a very good game.. If your tired of mario kart then try this game you will not be disappointed
Rated 7 out of 10 by acsuperfan It's okay
Well first of all I really think that the character voices are annoying!!! On the other hand this game is acually preatty fun, but i dont like that they dont have a kart selection like mario kart. Once you get the hang of the controls its a preatty easy game. It has a wide character selection and i'm happy they have my favorite driver. The power ups are kinda related to Mario kart. Like the oil spills are bananas and rockets are red shells,etc. The challenge mode ticks me off,because its like playing the same races all over again until you get to the good challenges or tracks. The slingshot feature comes in handy and saved my live quite a few times. Its funny watching my favorite driver talk in a sim type voice. The bottom line is that this game is preatty fun and it can get kind of annoying after a while.

This game is the best game ever made. Ive been playing this game for ten hours strait. You get addicted to this the first time you play it. If I were you i would get this game. It is hard to find but you will eventually find it somewhere. I like the different kinds of tracks you can race at. The compitition is not to hard and not to easy. It is just right for me. I would get this game right away if you like a challenge. Any type of person would like this game and if you dont thenn... well there is something wrong with you. I rate this game a ten out of ten. It is beeter if you can get a stearing wheel. It is easier to handle. The controls to this game is easy and you can pick it up right away. Im going to go play the game right now. Get the game. Trust me you wont be dissapointed.

This is a great game for the whole family to enjoy. You can use any controller, the gamecube controller, wii remote, wii wheel, or even the wii remote and the nunchuck. Its just like mario kart with all the kinds of powerups like rockets, oil and dynamite. But it involves having a teammate which you can use to get boost and things like that. I only wish it had online play, that would make it even better. But there are many different unlockables like characters, events, challenges and other things like that. Also every series you have a rival that you need to beat every race to get to the end of the series, there are only four races per series and they are pretty fun. I recommend it for any one who likes playing racing games especially mario kart.
