Superbikes

Superbikes is definantly a good racing game if you like motorcycles and you like racing them. Most racing games emphasize on the speed. I personally would give up some of the realism just for some more get up and go.

Graphics/Display:

Very nice graphics, no chopping of chugging. Quick load times and great frames per second. Played it on a PII-333A Celeron wand a Voodoo II and was pretty impressed. While I liked the realistic feel the rider gives you as he kneels down on the turn, the more I looked at him, I felt something was odd. I guess the motions were just too mechanical for my liking. Other than that, scenery was great, track was great and other bikes looked good.

Interface/Controls:

Man, you gotta slow down for those turns. Everything seemed good until I went off the track. The wheels just spin forever when you accelerate and if you try to turn while accelerating, it's all over and you're facing the wrong way. I don't recall anything but the engine sounds. They seemed pretty good.

Multiplayer (if any):

Summary:

I'm way too biased in the end for this game. I was a big motoracer I fan but never quite got into MRII so I'm afraid realism in Superbikes just didn't grab me like it should. It's hard to top a good game like motoracer. Others, have tried. (Redline Racing comes to mind) As usual, another game that just didn't grab me but I'm sure if I took the time with it I would get into it. I just want that quick fix from a game that just makes you want to play it forever from the very second you lay eyes on it.
