I love the new f1 2009 game ! It takes a little getting used to, but when you master the controls it's brilliant ! (I used the Wiimote - Nunchuck method.)

I also like NFS Undercover and Mario Kart.

Ah ofc Mario Kart, I suppose there isn't a whole lot of good racing games out there for the Wii.
Will give him a heads up on the other games listed as well, thanks.

It would be even better if it had online play.

My current top 3 racers:
F1 2009 is the best 'simulation' attempt on the Wii, too bad it's without online play.
NFS: Nitro is lots of fun. I'm not a fan of NFS series, but this one is fun for the Wii.
Nascar Kart Racing is the best Mario Kart clone ever IMO due to it's 'teamwork' gameplay twist.

Then of course Mario Kart Wii and Excite Truck as you mentioned. Excite Bots is just weird IMO, I couldn't even stand finishing 1 entire race before I threw it out. Oh and Speed Racer is an interesting game, kind of a 'F-Zero' feeling to it. Also Excite Bike World Rally is just classic retro NES style gameplay.

Don't forget Ferrari Challange, a better sim take than F1 2009, I have both and am a big F1 so that is saying a lot.

All the Need for Speed games are fun, except for NFS Nitro. It has that crappy "follow the car" view only. No cockpit or hood views. Plus the other NFS titles support the GameCube compatible steering wheels which give you analog controls for the gas and brake. Driving anything with a Wiimote is a joke. Would you want to run a race with only a button for gas and a button for a brake "switch". I doubt it.

If you are really into racing, you need to get a powerful PC and awesome steering wheel/pedals. That is the best way to go without a doubt. All others consoles with racing games are just "wanna-be's"

    @ColdBlitz, i forgot breath of the wild released for the Wii u

    $60 for a game that's a decade old might be unheard of on PC but actually is not uncommon on consoles

    especially Nintendo because they only ever lower the price of games when they do a greatest hits/platinum hits/players choice re-release
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, and the HD collections released for 7th gen consoles too
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but they don't seem to have done any of those for the switch yet and maybe never will
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    I think we all forgot breath of the wild released for the wii u tbh

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, tbh the HD collections are more justified since they include more than just 1 game per copy
