Excitebots brilliantly builds on the foundations of its spiritual predecessor, but ends up with a flavour of its own because it is jam-packed with crazy stuff to do. Some of the things you will do while racing probably don't make much sense when taken on their own, but the entire package is pure fun. It is easily the most refreshing game I have played in 2009. Only time will tell if it can overtake Mario Kart Wii as the best racer on its system, as the game as yet to prove its lasting appeal. This game is easily recommended for anybody who owns a Wii.
