This game is SO MUCH FUN. Transforming racing before Sonic and company. Such ad a shame that it didn't sell very well, because this is probably the best racer on Wii.

If it keeps selling at full price, and reaches 200,000 then it wount be a total loss. Hopefully it can get some love on the Wii 2 in vc form. shoot some games on teh wii could probaly be wii ware titles anyways..so why not?

It's much better than Excite Truck, you'll see.

I cannot believe it sold like this, seriously. It should have done MUCH better but no, Nintendo just let this one drown. It still hasn't even come out in europe for fuck sake and i am doubting that it ever will!

Wow, I knew this didn't sell well, but I didn't realize how badly it did. Mine's coming in the mail from Best Buy for $15. Almost completed Excite Truck, it's such an awesome game and if ExciteBots is better it will be easily one of my favorites. Definitely a game that will be highly sought after in the not too distant future. I'm definitely going to buy a few when it's cheap again to hold on to and sell in the not too distant future.

I bought this at full price when I got my Wii a few months back. It is a really good game! There are lots of tracks and customization. There is alot going on in this game and even the graphics are good. Im serious, rent it if your not sure. Or buy it for the reduced price and you will see. This game at least deserved to make 250,000 in sales to 1 million. It is ten times better than other games that have reached a million. It is especially good for kids and non-gaming females or males for that matter. If they would do demos for games as well on wii ware then everyone would know tht this was good. ofcourse then people may not buy games that are crap as well, and nintendo can't have that. Darn you game party!

If Amazon was selling 1 copy of this game and then the sales went up by over 2000%, this means they sold more than 20 right? Now, i don't know how many copies they were selling, but just amazon could sell more than past week's numbers i think...

ya, this game is still full-priced (50 bucks with wheel and 40 without) so maybe it's sales will shoot up some when the price drops?

it might be one of those games people are interested, but they don't think it's worth the price.
