GT Pro Series – Wii

  • Surprisingly good racing game
  • The Wii-mote is held with the D-Pad facing you and you use it like a steering whell. In fact if you buy this game it comes with a plastic steering wheel you can snap your Wii-mote into. Either way it controls the same
  • The game is cell shaded so the look is take it or leave it.
  • The sound is decen’t but not fantastic, the remote doesn’t do much.
  • Gameplay very similar to a Gran Turismo or the like. You race the NPCs to unlock new tracks and upgrades.
  • The real story here is the controls which is fantastic. I completly expected it to suck and I was greatly surprised that from the get go it controlled like a car.
  • Don’t be confused, this game does not control like Excite Truck; which is loose and spongy in my opinion. This game controls like a car, you can power slide recover, and the whole bit.
  • Multiplayer includes 2-4 player split screen.
  • If your looking for a racing game on the Wii I suggest this title.

  • tutorial drag out way too long
