Giving a nostalgic nod to Excitebike and Excitebike 64, Excite Truck features single- or two-player off-road racing on a variety of dirt and gravel courses. Players steer their way into the victory lane by tilting the controller left or right and accelerating with a button. When landing a jump, gamers tilt the Wii Remote forward or backward to keep the wheels in-line with the track. Collecting power-ups scattered along the road will temporarily deform part of the racecourse into a big ramp. As each jump is landed successfully, players are rewarded with short speed boosts. If players crash they are then faced with a quick mini-game requiring them to fill a meter to determine their restarting point on the track.
Quick fingers earn a spot close behind the other drivers. Similar to Excitebike, if gamers use their turbo too often, the truck overheats, causing the racer to stop and let things cool down. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game GuideExcite Truck, click here for more details
