    Neither. Which games do you have now? What type of gameply are you looking for and will you be playing with other people or mostly alone? Answer those questions and I will get you a better game for your hard robbed money.

    I say, if you like racing games get NFS : Carbon, if you like multiplayer, get Wii Play, but between those, I'd choose Excite Truck, but you really gotta decide for yourself

    If you are only deciding between those two games, I would have to say Monkey Ball. Monkey Ball just looks more fun than excite truck. Plus, it has 50 mini games along with the main story mode.

    Ok HOLD up here.


    I love love love LOVE monkey ball, alright?

    But maybe it's just me, but the tilt and control is as hard as hell to work.
    then again I only played mine for 10 minutes before turning it off.

    Monkey Ball isn't meant to be very good. I have SMB for my GC and whilst it IS fun, it gets a bit... repetitive. Don't know much about Excite Truck though.

    Save your money. . .buy neither.

    Wait until this spring and there will be a ton of newer better games for the Wii.

    Is it pants then?
    I don't know what to get. I'm figuring I can get a bundle on release, I'm just pre-booked for the actual console. I'd rather get a game with it as well.

    Excite Truck if you like racing but Monkey Ball if you love minigames + the Monkey Ball Franchise.

    I have Excite Truck and it's really fun. Sure, it's not one of those games that you will play for hours on end, but it's really fun to play for maybe 30 minutes at a time every once in a while. If you want a game to play for hours on end, I recomend The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

    I've also heard that Red Steel can get fun if you get used to the controls. I've heard good and bad about this game, but you might want to check it out.

    I'm not keen on Monkey Ball - its good for a laugh with mates but I'm pretty much a loner when it comes to my games. I like "puzzle" type games, not ones that I can just sit down and play, but ones that take a while.
    And I never really took to Zelda, dunno why. I'm keeping all my GC games anyway, so we'll see.

    Does anyone know if Rayman Raving Rabbids is any good?

    I've read ok reviews about it, seems to be an ok game, nothing special though.
    Now if they'd give me RE for a launch game...

    Excite Truck.

    It's a lot of fun and you can play your own music during the game.

    Sorry, no mp3 players =[[ It only supports SD cards for the music in this game, which doesn't work for me, since all of my music on this computer is in 'Windows Media Player' format, and I don't know how to change it. I tried a .wav to .mp3 converter, which didn't work, so... yeah.

    Can't wait until Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles comes out!

    Easy way to convert wav to mp3 files is to download iTunes, and import all your WMV music, and iTunes will ask if you want to convert the files to the mp3 format.
