I have played Excite truck and i thought while the game was really fun the controls were completely terrible. Look at it this way with a real steering wheel you have resistance something to hold you from turning entirely too sharp. With the wiimote floating out in the air just in your hands you have no resistance so you could do a 180 degree turn in less than a second. That how ever is no where near possible on a analog stick because they just don't work that way. So maybe now you can see where i am coming from.Originally Posted by Caliko
As from Brawl yes i know you can use the wiimote but every review i have read said those controls are terrible and unless you are a none gamer who wouldn't appreciate being able to use the gamecube controller then you would hate those controls too. Im not saying that there are not enough buttons for it to be possible i am just saying there are not enough buttons for it to feel just right and play perfect.
I have also been playing racing games since the NES era and i can see where you would say the jump from d-pad controls to analog controls was like the jump between 480i and 1080p, but as for the jump from analog to motion sensing well its more like the jump between 1080i and 1080p. Its not necessary at least not yet. Analog is more precise for right now eventually they will make the wiimote work well enough for racing games that i will want to use it, but not just yet
