At first, I was hesitant about picking this up because I played the first one for the Xbox 360 and I didn't think it was all that great. However, with the $40 price point and my need for a racer on my new Wii U console, I decided to give it a shot. I'm very glad I did! I've only played a few hours so far, but every time I thought about taking a break, I thought "one more race".

This game reminds me a bit of the Nintendo 64 classic black friday laptop deals Diddy Kong Racing, because of the ability to use a car, plane or a watercraft (in this case a boat). If you're a fan of DKR and you don't want to wait until Mario Kart gets a Wii U entry, then I would definitely recommend trying this game out. The graphics are beautiful, the controls are smooth, and the music is great. This seems to me like a nice choice for a party game with a few friends or for families with young children.
This is probably the best multi user game out for the Wii U at the moment. We played it for hours and hours yesterday and had a great time. Up to five people can race at one time. As someone else said, it is not Mario Kart but it is a pretty darn good racing game. It is definitely worth the price.
Wii U Review:
This game looks and plays great! Major bonus for the option to turn on "motion control" which help my wee little ones in controlling their favorite race characters. The motion control option allows the race vehicles to be controlled by turning the regular Wii controller or the Wii U tablet.

The races are fun and the scenery is really cool. We decided to buy the Wii U game after downloading and playing the demo version on our Wii U iphone 6s black Friday console.

The old school gamer in me loves the old SEGA announcement when the game first starts up. Yep, I'm a geek. :-)

CONTROLLERS: Wii U Tablet, Wii Remote
I bought this game after reading several good reviews. I am glad that I did. As one of the few racing games on recent Nintendo consoles, there are some inevitable comparisons to Mario Kart.

The first thing you will notice about this game is that it is BUSY. Graphically there is a lot more going on than what you would expect from Mario Kart Wii. This can make for an exciting (if overwhelming at first). Graphics on the TV (at 1080p) are gorgeous. If you decide to play it on the Wii U gamepad, the graphics are not very good, but it is still nice to have the capability to play off TV.

It is worth noting that the gas and breaks are operated via the LR triggers, as with the Need for Speed series (differing from Mario Kart controls).
If you are used to Mario Kart, the response and feel of the vehicles is quite different, although this only takes a few minutes to get used to.

Going around and unlocking things is pretty fun. There are tons of things to unlock. Characters, mods, stages, etc. One of my favorite things about this game as opposed to Mario Kart is the ability to level up drivers. When you level up drivers you get different vehicle mods that change the performance and response of the vehicle in very noticeable ways.

The stage design is awesome, with most stages being modeled off of some Sega franchise. I am not super familiar with SEGA games, but the concept is really cool. Each stage has parts where you drive, fly, and boat around. These vehicle transitions are quite smooth for the most part.

The items in this game for the most part are pretty crappy (in my opinion). One nice thing about items in this game as opposed to Mario Kart is that they do not dominate the race. If you get hit with an item, it usually only sets you back a few places in the race (as opposed to 1st to last transitions in Mario Kart games), so the outcome is more based on racing skill, than item defense.

This game truly shines in its multiplayer. Playing grand prix races with a group of friends is truly a blast.

All in all, this is a very good game. When I got it on Amazon, it was $40. That was a GREAT deal, and now it is under $30!! I don't think it is QUITE as good as MKWii, however anyone that is a fan of the Mario Kart series should definitely pick up this game. I am certain that when I have friends over to play games, this one will not collect dust.

Gameplay (8/10): Very well done, an impressive game, inspired by, but differing in a refreshing way from the Mario Kart series.
Graphics (9/10): Beautiful, impressive for a launch title. In my opinion, the best graphics of a Wii U launch game.
Music (6/10): Pretty lackluster. Obviously not much thought was put in to the music. As an active classical musician, music is one of my favorite aspects of games, and the music is mostly unremarkable (with a few exceptions) and occasionally annoying (play the Samba de Amigo stage....)
Replay value (8/10): Fun game. Completionists will be challenged. Once you have unlocked most of the stuff, you won't really want to play it by yourself anymore. However, this makes a great party game, and is a blast to play with friends.
Overall: 8/10
I'm usually not a huge racing game fan or Sonic related spin-offs (Mario vs. Sonic Olympic Games? No Thank you). However, for kicks the other night, my husband and I downloaded the demo to give it a try...it's been a while since Nintendo put out a decent racing game--post Mario Kart.

I was actually blown away by this game. Let's talk graphics...it's pretty, really pretty. Smooth too. Even though the vehicles often transform, and the tracks are complicated, it still retains it's graphic quality without any traditional glitchy moments that you see in some of the F-zero games or even Mario Kart 3DS.

This game is surprisingly difficult as well, even for standard mode. I like a challenge and this game definitely delivers! There are several different types of modes including battle, challenges (the Ring challenges gave me some trouble!), and traditional tournament style. The courses are pretty neat and usually multiple routes per course. You also change from racecar to hovercraft to jet constantly throughout the game...which adds another level of difficulty.

One of my favorite features--the multiplayer mode using the gamepad. Separate screens is amazing since you never get distracted by a split screen, nor does the game pad lose a ton of the graphic value. Plus, the game pad enables you to play with 5 players, opposed to the traditional 4.

On the down side, you need to be a booster in this game. I was surprised on how much the races themselves rely on boosting. To get first place can be difficult--not like Mario Kart for the Wii. You really need to utilize your boost in order to gain momentum and get the gold.

One last critique...Danica Patrick as a playable character? That was a weird marketing ploy. I would've rather had Blaze the cat...at least she's related to a Sonic Game.

Aside from Nintendo land, this is my favorite game for the Wii U. Now the only thing left is to try and beat my husband at it! I'm a bit tired of coming in 2nd all of the time. Hope you buy it; it's definitely worth it!
