Gameplay
In ExciteBots: Trick Racing players race around internationally located tracks in the form of their favorite insect, amphibian or mammal themed bot. Each bot has its own special abilities which will serve players well when they find themselves on the right terrain to take advantage of these. As with pretty much any racing game, a major goal is to complete the course at the highest speed possible, but players are also tasked with performing stunts and participating in mini-games. Players win bonus stars for crossing the finish line sooner, but stunts, style and these mini-games are as important as speed. For example: have you ever wished that you could play poker while racing? Think you can toss a dart or roll a bowling ball while leaving the competition in the dust? ExciteBots provides you with your chance. Stars can be traded for a variety of goodies, like new vehicles, tracks, icons and statues.

Control Schemes
The control scheme of ExciteBots is easy and fun. The game can be played with just a Wii Remote or via the combination of a Wii Remote and a Nintendo Wheel accessory/any third party wheel. The 2 Button on the Wii Remote controller is the gas. The + control pad gives drivers a speed boost. Players turn the Wii Wheel accessory left or right to steer, tilt the Wii Wheel in midair to glide or to adjust pitch for perfect landings, swing the Wii Wheel in circular motions around boost bars to build up speed and press the A Button to activate items or to cash in hands in Poker Mode.

Key Features

  • Special ExciteBots: Trick Racing bundle features included Nintendo Wii Wheel.
  • The game takes the big-air thrills and simple pick-up-and-play controls of ExciteTruck and ramps up the fun with a constant barrage of funky challenges and mini-games performed at blinding speed. Players shoot goals, throw pies and even play poker in the middle of rowdy races around off-road tracks.
  • Having your vehicles drive, walk or fly around the track quickly is one thing, but it's more important to go around in style. Players earn stars for huge jumps, cool tricks and daring feats at high speed.
  • Six players can race online* via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in both Excite Race and Poker Race modes. If friends can't join online, players can exchange ghost data via WiiConnect24 and challenge their friends to outdo their most daring tricks.
  • 2-player multiplayer versus mode featuring split screen display is also available for local play.
Special Moves
Just as in ExciteTruck, drivers can hit blocks that morph the terrain before their eyes and create ramps from which players can launch mega-jumps. Players can aim for and swing around boost bars or open presents that unleash a variety of wild items, such as bottle rocket boosts or clacker mouths that chomp on other racers to slow them down.

Mini-Games
Now what about those mini-games. Do you know of any other game that features high-speed robotic racers combined with bowling, poker, clown faces and sandwich making? Didn't think so, but how do these game work?

  • Soccer: Drive into the soccer ball and attempt to hit it into the goal.
  • Bowling: Drive through the pins and attempt to get a strike.
  • Darts: Line up your bot and let the dart fly. Try to hit bull's-eye in the distance.
  • Clowns: Hit the clown in the face with a pie by throwing it at just the right angle and speed.
  • Sandwiches: Drive through the ingredients in the proper order to make a delicious sandwich.
*Note that broadband access is required for online play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing! March 20 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Excitebots is the best game I've played on the Wii. It's just so much fun. It's extremely fast, and the quirky mini-games really make it great. I love how there's a ton of different ways to go through any track -- it's not like Mario Kart where there is usually one route.

The online play is also amazing. You can play up to 5 others through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and it works quite well. There is a lobby between races, and there's a betting system where you can bet up to 2500 stars based on how well you think you can do on a particular course. The online play is lag-free.

The only thing that isn't great about the game is its despicable menu interface. It's really boring and generic. It's not a huge problem, but it would've been nice if some extra work was put into the menu.

You won't regret buying this game. It's just too much fun. The only reason I don't think this game became very popular is because it wasn't hyped up and it wasn't advertised much at all. If it was just advertised a bit, it'd certainly be more popular because it is a really great game.

My 4 year old boy can't start and end his day without playing and he's having a blast when he gets to unlock a new character and he keeps buying them. The best game so far that I have purchased for them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excite Race: Take 2 April 24 2009
By Michael Kerner - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There is no question about the appeal of racing games on the Nintendo Wii. After the massive success of Mario Kart Wii last year, it has honestly been very difficult to see that if Nintendo can actually top itself again. Well, Nintendo has shown that eagerness again. When the Wii got launched in 2006, one of the introduction titles was Excite Truck. the game did a good job at showing the need for speed onto the Wii. But the game was sadly overlooked in place of other titles like Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and the dynamic Wii Sports, which of course came with the system. Well, Nintendo is going to try the racing series yet again, and this time it is a bit stranger than before.

Excitebots: Trick Racing for the Nintendo Wii, brings in the wild, and honestly a bit weird into the gaming, as you race not cars or trucks, but robotic animals. Yes, robotic animals like Bats, Grasshoppers and Beatles. It might seem akward, but it does bring in a new twist in racing. The gameplay does work as it did before with Excite Truck, the way to score and unlock new races, is to perform outrageous stunts like Ring Jumps, perform tricks, and smash your opponents. The graphics look good, but the gameplay is also interesting. You can control the game like you did before with Excite Truck, by steering the controler like it is a wheel, or you can also use the Wii Wheel, which comes with this package, or if you've bought Mario Kart Wii.

There are a few new things here that make the game a bit strange. One of the things includes the extra bonuses you get during the race, are from racing stunts like throwing and scoring in darts, from trying to score a bowling strike, to tossing a pie in the clowns' face. You can also score stars by performing twirls on hanging bars. This requires a lot of control and especially tight timing. The other new feature is the use to play against other racers online through the Wi-Fi. It makes the games a bit interesting, as you score your way first to the finish line, as you and as many as 5 other racers make your way through tracks around the world from Asia, Africa, and Europe.

While there are a lot of new things here, there sadly is a few faults with the game. The first big disadvantage is the control. It can be very tricky at first, but it takes awhile to get used to. Also, unlike Mario Kart Wii, you cannot use the Gamecube or Wii Classic Controllers either. The game mainly uses the Wii-mote. The second disadvantage is the online gaming. While you can race against other Excitebots online, they could've allowed it to allow more than just 6 racers for a match.

You can buy Excitebots: Trick Racing with, or without the Wii Wheel definitely. But, if you haven't bought Mario Kart Wii, you might want to get the expanded version with the Wii Wheel, for a bit more extreme gameplay. Nevertheless, despite a few faults, Excitebots: Trick Racing definitely brings in a bit of weirdness into gameplay that is sure to knock you off your rockers. If you haven't yet played Excite Truck, than you'll definitely want a new spin on what makes the Wii extreme with Excitebots: Trick Racing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun single player race game Oct. 28 2009
By Gilmoure - Published on Amazon.com

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The racing in this game is cool. Totally non-realistic but makes use of terrain of the courses and the controller. Lots of jumps and some off track 'secret' parts to find. You're still constrained to the basic track path, though. Can't just go exploring. There are a lot of levels in racing skill but only about 6 or 8 different tracks.

Our 9 year old has had no problem picking up this game. She just wishes it was easier to unlock more of the cars. You have to earn points per race and save up to get more than the original 6 robotic bugs and animal cars.

About the only downside is that this game is one player racing, unless you connect online. Would be cool if this allowed two player racing like Mario Kart.

P.S. The Bat is our favorite ExciteBot to use
5.0 out of 5 stars An Underrated, Hidden Gem in a Cool Bundle Jan. 30 2013
By The Bud Man - Published on Amazon.com

My brother was wanting this game for a while, having played the demo at GameStop multiple times. I figured I'd get it for him for Christmas.

Upon seeing this bundle with the Wii Wheel, and knowing we didn't have the Wheel yet, I knew it was the one to get.

Racing games on Wii pretty much require it. Makes the gameplay that much less of a hassle.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Wii. More than most. It has a lot of great games that would have been better without motion controls, but that will never receive the love they deserve because of the bias of the gaming culture.

This game here is a good example. Is it perfect? No. But it doesn't have to be. It's wacky, original, and above and beyond all else, it's fun.

You race as transforming robot creatures. There are little in-track mini-games that will give you extra points, like throwing darts or hitting bowling pins. All while you're racing!

There's even a poker mode, where you race around and have to pick up cards to build the best poker hand.

If you're looking for something different, and can get past the hassle of motion control bundled with the stigma of the Wii, look no further than ExciteBots: Trick Racing.

It is a fun game. We loved it for the first couple of days. Well, but as you can tell, it is a game for racing, unless you are really into racing cars, you will not start playing it again in a while.
