    Get excite truck, graphics are good and it has a bit of replay factor as you can keep beating records,getting courses and multiplayer is so cool. I also have ssx blur but i think it is over-rated, not as good as its predesors

    I was thrilled with SSX Blur when I bought it, but after beating all the races in a week its kind of like bleh now. I can't figure out how to do one of the ubers right, and it's gotten kind of repetitive now. Don't get me wrong, it was really sweet when I bought it and I loved it the entire week I played it. I just don't know how much I'll play it now. Partly that might be due to all the gamecube games I bought recently.

    As far as excite truck goes, I just rented it yesterday. I think its alot of fun, but in terms of what you're trying to accomplish it seems very similar to ssx blur. You have events that you need to beat and you keep playing them until you do well enough. I feel like I'd get bored with excite truck eventually too. I haven't unlocked multiplayer yet though so not sure about that aspect.

    SSX multiplayer was fun the couple times I played it, but the problem is your friends have to take the time to do the tutorial before they can compete with you. So if you're friends are over alot and you play alot of wii already then it might be cool.

    Personally I kind of wish I'd bought excite truck instead of SSX Blur, but that might be because I've already beaten SSX Blur and excite truck is new to me.

    I suggest Excite Truck. Completly unrealistic, but it is a great racing game.

    Haven't played SSX Blur, so I'm not sure about it

    HAHA! I thought you meant E.T . for the Dreamcast! I was wondering if it was released for download. Then I figured out it stood for Excite Truck! I personally have never played SSX but I think Excite Truck is rather fun!!

    I purchased SSX Blur and in my honest opinion, it is the BEST wii game I have played yet...and i have either purchased or played around half of the titles released already...The controls are AWESOME and has lots of replay value.

    i haven't been able to find a better game than ssx blur...and I always recommend that to people if they were looking for a "good game to buy".

    Hope that helps!

    ET definitely dude. I played it an it's amazing. So much fun, multi is a blast as well. Single player is pure gold though, and I heard Blur didn't live up to its expectations.

    Easy choice: EXCITE TRUCK.

    I own both and when I am in the mood to play the Wii, I keep finding myself throwing in Excite Truck rather than SSX Blur. It is just more exciting to play! Therefore, choosing between the two I would say ET. Hope that helps!

    I haven't played Excite Truck but I've had SSX Blur since release date in the US and I still love it. SSX Blur is a great game for the wii. The controls are difficult but great once you get them down.
