A Wii game! Looks like they're staying with the popular platforms for the DOTD.

30 dollars? Meh, I guess it's a good price. Not good enough for me to buy it though.

I didn't click on the link, but isn't that one of the games that comes with that piece of shit wheel? If so, then I guess it's OK since that wheel costs $20 separately..but still.. huge mehhhhhhh about today. Just goes to show ya that Mondays suck :(

NFS:Carbon does not come with the shitty wheel. It is the deepest racer on the Wii and it controls well when you use the 'NES-style' control scheme (a la Excite Truck) and set the steering sensitivity to Tight. Worth $30 if you would like a racer for your Wii and you were pleased with the way NFS games have been structured since NFS: Underground.

People complain way too much about these deals. Amazon doesn't even have to do them at all. These deals are a great idea and they occur 7 days a week. As long as I keep seeing these deals, wether I want them game or not, I'm happy. If every day there was a great game up, I'd be broke. A bit childish to complain everytime something you don't like comes up, because someone out there might like the deal they have.

Who's complaining? Yesterday's deal wasn't that great, today's deal isn't that great. Going "mehh" (like nearly everyone in this thread has said) is not complaining. It's just stating the facts that this game being on sale isn't anything special.

And yeah, Amazon doesn't have to do this. But it's not like they are providing us with a favor, they are doing it so they can make money...

I'm hoping for a particular game to pop up on this, is there a way to check past DOTD's to see if it already hasn't happened?

I can completely understand it. I'm sure each of us have a game that they are waiting for to pop up as a DOTD. So when it isn't the game that we wanted we get alittle annoyed. In my case I would love to see more 360 DOTDs, since I just picked one up and really want more cheap 360 games.

I'll drink to that :beer:, however, I don't think this particular deal is that great. If it was the 360 version, that would be another story.

Good. My wallet will not bleed today. *pats empty wallet*

Any idea how long Amazon will do DOTD with games? Would love it if this was a daily thing FOREVER!!!! (my wallet, however, will not...)

I'm not saying meh and what not is bad. But I don't see how people keep thinking every DOTD should be what they want and if it's not they complain. It would be nice, but in reality, you have to take the deals you don't like until you get the deal you like. Not to mention, I find it much more satisfying when I see a bunch of poor deals and then a deal I want pops up. It feels like the patience has paid off. Maybe it's just me, but I am more pumped up at that point and enjoy the game more.

Like I said before, I'm thankful these DOTDs keep coming and hope they don't stop, and I don't expect everyone of them to be good. I'm sure there will be some that are downright awful in my eyes (Like a disney type game or some bad movie tie-in.), but someone might be glad it came up. Let them play out, and keep waiting for the deal that catches your eye and wallet. lol

This game is actually VERY fun. My sister bought it for me for Chiristmas. Was skeptical, but I've actually logged more time in it than Sports, Madden, SMBBB, COD3, and THDJ.

Not a bad game at all. I haven't put too much time into it, but I actually like the control scheme where the remote tilted forward from 90 degrees accelerates and the nunchuk analog stick is used to steer.

Good Game. I'd say it's worth it if you like racing games. The wii controls seem great to me. I even prefer them over the 360 version.

Picked up a copy for myself because I was left wanting more racing after beating Excitetruck in a week.

Man, I'm so bummed so many people are passing on this game! I picked it up with my $15 refund from newegg with Paypal and have been so exceptionally pleased. The controls are perfect, the visuals are nice for the Wii, and it's all around, just a really fun game. And for $30, I'd definitely suggest picking this up.

And heres to more Wii games on the DOTD! :cheers:
