Philosophy students and aspiring monks need to download Enduro Racer straight away in order to have their perspectives on existence informed by its ending sequence's introspective musings, but the rest of we Wii owners can easily get along without it. Its isometric motorcycling gameplay is fair, but it's nothing like the arcade game it's named after and a more robust 8-bit bike racer is already available in the Wii Shop through Excitebike, which has features like a custom course creator that this release lacks.
Trouble is, too much of it feels random. It's easy to land from a jump right in front of an unavoidable hazard, while dune buggies drift across the track for no other reason than to get in your way. The result is a game that has the beginnings of something rather addictive, but never quite musters compelling gameplay to match.
The gameplay feels slow and sluggish mostly due to the strange angle of play, there is never a sense of speed like in Hang-On and Out Run on the Master System. The game is also quite bland with uninspired locales and features which repeat themselves constantly. It’s not to say that Enduro Racer isn’t fun for a short while, but there isn’t the depth available here as you would find with Excitebike on the NES. Our recommendation is to pass up on this; it’s certainly not going to hold your attention for very long like more accomplished racing games.
