    Wasn't this the game you could play with 4 guys at once? Read about this a few months ago.
    I think you could drive with 4 players with only 2 Wiimotes and 2 Nunchucks. 2 Players play with the Wiimotes and 2 players could play with the Nunchucks. Very nice idea, hope it works out well!

    Maybe its because I don't like top-down racers, but this seems really bad looking.

    I'd like to add Final Fantasy. Even though Square thought it would be their last game they'll ever release, they should have had better hindsight or just renamed the second game.

    you know what its been done before years ago on the AMIGA

    remember this one anyone

    the aptly named SKIDMARKS and its followup of SUPER SKIDMARKS by Acid Software!

    (could not find a vid of the first one but here's the second one)



    edit found a vid of ULTIMATE SKIDMARKS the CD32 version




    looks kinda similar! .....Maby better the cars looked like REAL CARS!


    btw boring information of the day for this Amiga game back in the day pre its release ...I was an OFFICIAL BETA TESTER! [​IMG]

    Not only skidmarks and ultimate skidmarks look the same, so do micro machines, turbosliders and many, many more..

    If this is anything like Super Sprint I'll be all over it.

    Edit: Hmm, seems to reset itself before it loads up. Is freethewads still the best wad to regionfree a wad?

    This is a really good racer and its pretty much like Super Sprint, Skidmarks and Super Off-Road. Very old school but the downside is that the solo modes feels emptier so multiplayer is the way to go.

    Such a shame that all modes aren't available for single players or even two players and sadly getting more than one person to come round to play on the Wii nowadays is rare.

    There are a lot of vehicles to race and you'll want to try racing most of them at least once. There are a lot of tracks but most feel samey like in most racers.

    No WFC but I hear its more the fault of Nintendo more than the developers of the WW games, with it this would have been even more essential.

    Disregard my post above. It IS PAL, it's just that I'm still using 3.2E. Plays fine on my mates 3.4E.
