Superbikes was a pretty good game, but it gets a bit old fast because of some of the downfalls of the game.
The graphics are pretty nice and it seems to run pretty smooth. I didn't see anything that really
jumped out at me in the way of errors or anything out of the ordinary.
I was first put off by this game because I had to use my gravis gamepad to play the game. I didn't
have an option of playing with the keyboard, or anything else I could see for that matter. It gave
me the option of playing with anything that was in my 'joystick' setup in my computer and that
was it. I found the game a little jumpy playing it with the gamepad though. When you go into
corners, it's like you tend to come out of the corner and not straighten up by just letting go
of the pad. You actually have to make it sit up. This makes it a little difficult if you
use the defaults in that you have to press the up pad in order to go, so trying to keep it up and
right or left at the same time gets annoying... Usual sounds in a bike game...
While it's a pretty game, I'd tend to stick with the motoracer or motocross madness type games
than this one. I guess you can only get so much realism with a game and this one seems to have
given us too much (which doesn't happen often) and I guess I shouldn't give the game a lower
score because of it, I am...
