Official Nintendo Magazine has called Wheelspin (SpeedZone) the worst game on Wii, subsequently giving the game and 11 percent.
“Wheelspin is an astoundingly bad game, and fairly quickly pretty much everyone else in our office gathered around to have a good laugh at it,” quoted the site.
Going further, the review stated that “Wheelspin might have a smooth frame rate (in single-player at least), but that counts for nothing. A racing game can be as smooth as the Fonz but if it handles like a yacht in a storm it’s to be avoided at all costs.”

Remember when, back in May, Bethesda Europe managing director Sean Brennan lamented about the Wii’s dry-as-a-desert pool of “mature” games? Well, for those who don’t, he also teased the “really big” announcement of a mature Wii game from Bethesda.
VG247 asked Bethesda VP Pete Hines for clarification concerning that title, and here’s what he told us:
“[Sean] was referring to the Wheelspin Wii game Bethesda is publishing in Europe (only) and that is being shown in our booth at GamesCom this week.”
Wheelspin is — if the title didn’t give it away — a racing game. Its goal, in addition to going really, really fast, is to “push the hardware further than any other Wii racing game to date.”
It’s out this autumn, if you’re interested.

Bethesda has announced that it is to publish Archer McLean’s futuristic racer Wheelspin on Wii.
Due to hit stores this fall, the Awesome Play developed title will contain both solo, race, and battle modes with speeds reaching up to 650kph.
“Wheelspin was designed exclusively for the Wii – with the intention of pushing the hardware further than any other Wii racing game to date,” said Archer Maclean in a statement. “You have to see the graphics moving to believe its coming out of a Wii – the visuals rush past smoothly at 60 FPS all in widescreen 480P mode.
“We are very pleased to be working with Bethesda, many of whom have been involved with my previous titles going back 20 years”.
