    I own Excite Truck and love it, and just this week I rented Carbon... I'm still undecided about picking up a copy, the controls seem too floppy, and when in certain control modes, the main menu navigation requires you hold the wiimote vertically, it seems poorly programmed in that sense. Excite Truck wins hands down imo. On the other hand, every single NFS game has won my heart in the end, and I'm sure this one will too, it'll just take some time.

    I'd still do anything to replace Rayman with Carbon, no doubt about that!

    okay, i've not played excite truck, but i will tell you that carbon is tha ****... ya at first play of the game i was like wow controls suck, so i started messing with the options... plug the nunchuck in and use control config 4 and its awesome hold the wiimote in your right hand and nunchuck in ur left, the wiimote is your gas pedal point it down for gas pull it back for brake, on the nunchuck side hold it down the analog stick is steering left and right, now if u want ot powerslide a turn pull back on the nunchuck and it will engage the ebrake, u can also slightly pull back on the nunchuck to just slow ur car down... this is the best way to play this game it make it more fun almost like ur driving the car, ps. nitrous is b on the wiimote in this configuration.

    drift tips. while drifting don't use the ebrake (nunchuck) control ur turns by leftting off the gas and giving it more gas(wiimote) pump the throttle for better control in drifts..

    race tips, for turning sharp just before the turn jerk up on the nunchuck to enable the ebrake then point the nunchuck down to git you sideways enuf to make the turn without losing speed.

    i want to buy exite truck to see what its like, but i dunno it just seems to unrealistic for me.

    I just rented Excite Truck. Its the most fun racing game I have ever played IMO. Controls beat NFS easily.

    I'm kinda torn also. I don't have either but I really would like a racing kinda game. I watched the reviews on IGN and it seems like Excite Truck would be perfect if not for the horrible Multiplayer. I mean come on Nintendo. Only TWO people can play in MP? In addition there are not many tricks from what I've heard. Only that 360 turn correct? Thats ridiculous. The one good thing Excite Truck has going for it is the way it uses the Wiimote and the beautiful levels and gameplay. MP on NFS looks to be the same except Carbon has a lot more cars and there seems to be alot more storyline/plot involved. Can anyone tell me if I've assessed the situation correctly?
