Nintendo Life writes: "If you're looking for a realistic racing experience then I'm sorry to report that you've come to the wrong place. Excitebots isn't about an authentic racing experience, it's about flooring the accelerator and holding on for dear life. As good as the original Excite Truck release was, Excitebots brings so much more to the table with its unique robotic insect and animal-themed vehicles and all-new gameplay additions. Excitebots takes all of the patented over-the-top racing action of the original Excite Truck and steps it up about 10 notches. The end result is one of the most enjoyable Nintendo Wii titles to date and a game that's almost impossible to put down once you begin playing it. It may not feature the depth of Gran Turismo or Forza, but its a damn sight more entertaining".
