    Works with USBLoader too...Only no Internet avaible..gives a stupid Error..no Chance for the Online-Features... (cIOS failure...needs to be fixed...)

    It's a funny game, thought it would be bader...love the Online-Modus (have to play via Disc/ModChip...then online works [​IMG]). I'm surprised [​IMG].

    Take Excite Truck, give it better, more vibrant graphics, way more tracks, more speed (didn't think it was possible!), lots of new extras and track gimmicks, and toss in a whole pile of transforming robot animals. It's very, very fun. My favorite arcade racer to date. I'll only be playing it via USB loader, but it's good enough that I still plan on buying the disc on Friday (payday!)

    I'm using CIOS rev10, and I've been playing loads online via USBLoader. I definitely do not have a modchip. So, I'm not sure why it's not working via USBloader for you....

    I have been playing this game online via USB loader as well. And I am only softmodded. For what it's worth to some people out there.

    Edit: I'm playing right now so if anybody sees SSR on there...that's me.

    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!
    same on my ntsc 3.2u works fine via:
    gamma, usbloader and disc channel loading [​IMG]

    TRY TO REINSTALL CIOSCORP VERSION 1 then unplug the usb from the wii and install cios36 rev 9 again [​IMG] it should fix that issue [​IMG]

    Didn't think it was possible to be faster? If it's faster than F-Zero GX, then I'll be impressed.

    I played it today and it looked and felt just like excite truck, nothing more nothing less.

    I didnt see any difference in the gfx or speed at all!

    Im not saying its shit, i just dont get why it had to be dodgy robo-animals and not something realistic. and doing TEN rotations on those red bars!!?>!> wtf?!

    The game has stone giants swinging at you, giant baseball, giant pies to throw at giant clowns, giant bowling, giant football, giant darts, you make sandwiches while swinging on zip-lines, and you can jump for like a mile.... realistic vehicles just wouldn't fit in at all.... plus, the robots can run, and even fly at times... this opens up new gameplay options that just couldn't be matched with trucks or other realistic vehicles.
