Review by Tom Allen
3 Stars out of 4

The first thing you should do with Excitebike 64 is beat the tutorial mode, which won't take long with about 20 single tests. Beat it, and you unlock the original 8-bit classic (complete with level design option!). Be sure to play this hidden game; it will be great to see how they translated the elements into the new 3-D game.

Excitebike 64 follows the conventions of the original game, with turbo boosts that, when used too often, will burn out your engine.

The only problems with the 3-D game are the poor turning and weak acceleration. Without these problems, the game may have received an "A."

Shortcuts are littered throughout the courses, and you can make the experience even more interesting with optional stunt performances.

The better levels, like the very atmospheric snow level, are available late in the game. For those of you who stick with it, Excitebike 64 should be a joy ride even in the earlier, less scenic areas.
