I might be wrong, but I don't think so. You use the Wiimote and the nunchuk as percussion instruments, to fire-up your left and right propulsion engines, and thus steer.

Gamecube game that was released on the wii as it got delayed on the gamecube, sounds like it was hastily cobbled together and shunted onto the wii, reviews here.

Sounds really bad...................and the Bongos were supposed to be used to control the game - Nintendo ported it to the Wii - scrapped the bongo option, and couldn't be bothered to change the box cover............lazy...........:whistling:

Barrel Blast began life as a GameCube game, one that was to extend the life of the bongo controller packed in with games like Donkey Konga and the excellent Jungle Beat. Accelerating would mean alternating strikes on the left and right bongos, turning left or right would mean hitting that particular drum, and so forth. But when the game made the leap to the Wii, it left the bongo control scheme behind in lieu of Wii-mote and nunchuk support, and that’s where the proverbial wheels fell off.

Accelerating in Barrel Blast is done by alternately waving the remote and nunchuk, while turning means waggling one or the other. And it goes on from there. In order to keep players from getting too tired, you only ever have to accelerate your character until they reach max speed, at which point they’ll stay there until they hit something.

The controls are a joke. They’re imprecise at best and a complete pain in the rear at worst. And since the whole scheme offers such little actual control over your barrel blaster, the game basically plays itself. You won’t steer around the corners; you’ll simply steer to avoid obstacles. Most navigation is done automatically. And, again, since control is so imprecise, the game runs at a snail’s pace compared to other racing games.
