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.
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.
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.
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.
