Red Steel + Excite Truck = pwn
I rented Carbon for Wii, we got about 75% through it in a few days. I don't think racers are generally gonna be very long. Excite truck is fun but less realistic. I rented excite truck too, but was busy and didn't get to play it as much as I'd have liked. It didn't seem like there was that many tracks. I still might pick it up off ebay for cheaper though, but I wouldn't buy need for speed, maybe just because I got farther in it. Need for speed is just about winning the race. In excite truck you get ratings on how well you raced in terms of drifting and stunts and such, so the replayability is greater since you come back to get better ratings and unlock stuff. Need for speed you unlock parts and there is the car customization, which is very in depth I must say.Originally Posted by StealthSoul

Thanks for the replies. I guess the racer is a little easy to decide on, I'm pretty sure i'm getting Excite Truck now.
About the FPS, I'm still not sure >.< I keep hearing mixed reviews on Red Steel.. What did people think of Splinter Cell on the wii?
I prefer FarCry to RedSteel. I find the control in RedSteel is over sensitive. Yes, FarCry's graphics aren't as crisp as RedSteel's, but the multiplay is better. I think the aiming is more accurate on FarCry too.
I can't get enough from Excite Truck. My kids and I like to just start bashing each other around

Farcry doesn't really interest me =[.
I think at the moment it's out of:
Splinter Cell \ Medal of Honor \ Red Steel
Red Steel I should get a chance to play today as i'm going to a friend's house and he has it..
I'm still not sure though -.-
Racer will be Excite Truck for sure, i've read some great reviews about it.
I'm thinking the FPS will be Medal of Honor, as it's one of the top sellers at the moment according to the sites i'm looking at..
Any last opinions from anyone?
Redsteel, you like it or you hate it.
Story was good - Nice story! Not as good as Zelda but Original.
Gameplay was good - I think the single player was a blast to play besides the glitches.
Graphics were good - Not the best but for a launch game they are good.
Music/Sound was good - I music was good and voice acting was bad. Music for the sword fight is just fun to listen to.
Mutliplayer is good - Well built, just needs to make feel little more completive.
Miaymoto says we need to add a category for non-gamers
For Non-Gamers: You may or may not like it. Its the best FPS on the Wii right now.
For Gamers: Probably going to hate it...you played so much Halo this game looks like a sin. Though it does have a nice story and funfactor is high cause of the controls.
Pros: Fun FPS, Sword Fights
Cons: Glitchy!, Game was rushed, Sword Fights were choppy, If you retarded there is a learning curve

If I were you (this is what I am doing) I wouldnt waist my money on half-ass games that are out right now, and I would just be patient and get the REAL games.
FPS: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Racer: (This one is really up to you, but I know what I am going with and what I will suggest to you) Driver: Parallel Lines (Incase youve never heard of it, its kind of like a GTA, except more driving, and it will use the wii remote to its full potential)
Thanks for all the replies guys.
I think I will not get an FPS for now, as they dont seem to be great just yet.. Metroid seems great though.
I have heard of driver, had it on my Playstation. When'll that be released?
I am probably still going to get a racer for now, as i've found some for VERY cheap.. So if I dont like the game I could just trade it and make a tiny profit.. :P
i don't know when Driver will be realesd (i havn't heard anythingn in ages) but ill give you one more reccomendation for Excite Truck lol
EDIT: screw my typos lol im tired
i need a new sig!!! if you can be bothered, pm me and say that you can help me! (if you are good at making sigs lol)
Carbon is awesome and get vanguard best shooter yet
