Entertainment writer Brandy “BAM” McDonnell attended the “Speed Racer” film junket this weekend, and as a bonus, got to tear up the tracks on the Wii version of the upcoming “Speed Racer” game. Brandy says:
But the best of the toys is definitely the new “Speed Racer” game for the Nintendo Wii. I got to spend about five minutes playing up against a Ninetendo rep. It was my first time playing the Wii, and I had an absolute blast. I generally don’t play racing games because using a traditional controller just feels awkward and not very gratifying. But the Wii-mote feels very natural – you can also use the steering wheel peripheral – and much easier to control.
