ESRB RatingE

I’m going to beat the drum of Nintendo ending shovelware harder and harder. Will they care? No. Because crap like Tuk Tuk Extreme makes them money. This game is utter garbage, and you know this because there is no publisher is listed. I’ve only reviewed one other game with no publisher, and it too was crap. On top of that, the provided screenshots lie:

There are no other Tuk Tuk’s driving around during game play, NONE.

So in Tuk Tuk Extreme, you drive a tuk tuk, a three-wheeled motorized taxi found in many cities around the world. In TTE, your goal, I think, is to transport people from one destination to another in as short a time as possible. Well, I think that’s what you are supposed to be doing as there are no passengers shown:

You are supposed to be this guy

Tuk Tuk Extreme is essentially time trials. You drive along the course as quickly as possible to make it to the goal square. The game’s problem is that the controls are shit and you’ll be falling over a lot or swerving into barricades. Don’t worry though, you’ll still make it with plenty of time to spare.

This will happen a lot.

When you complete a course, you go to the next one, which is often the last course with a new coat of paint. You can in fact see this in the header image where the left and right image are of the same street layout. When you win, you get coins, to unlock new Tuk Tuks with different stats, but its not important to do so. They all drive the same.

In the end, Tuk Tuk Extreme is another garbage-tier game Nintendo lets on the Eshop because it doesn’t care about quality, just the bottom line. Unfortunately, I have to review this crap as a warning to others to stay away, because somebody has to do it.

Overall: Tuk Tuk Extreme is another garbage-tier game Nintendo lets on the Eshop because it doesn’t care about quality, just the bottom line.

Verdict: Garbage
