LOS ANGELES--Nintendo is putting a new spin on a classic concept with Excite Truck, the upcoming racer for the Wii. If the name sounds a bit like Excitebike, the classic NES game, you'll find that's for a reason. The game uses the basic Excitebike formula and puts trucks in the mix. In the short demo we were able to try, the game offered a fun racing experience that made smart use of the controller's attributes. We tried a few laps in Mexico, the second of two courses (the first being Fiji) and were pleased by how the action handled.
