Conclusion: Excitebike: World Rally isn't a revolution for the series; heck, it isn't even an evolution, really. However, over 20 years later, the gameplay holds up incredibly well and fits the WiiWare platform like a glove.
Summary: Remaking an old game can be tricky, especially if it is a title that is heralded as a classic in its own right. There is such a fine line that is walked in producing the remake; it is very hard to find the right balance between updating enough of the game to make it relevant to today's audiences and...
Excerpt: Hardcore gamers have been clamoring for a sequel to Excitebike for years. Nintendo has finally come through with Excitebike World Rally. This Wiiware downloadable game is a worthy sequel of the original franchise. The current cost is 1000 points, which equates to ten US dollars.
Excerpt: One of the best trends of the last couple years has been graphical upgrades of 8 and 16 bit favorites. Quietly, Nintendo released Excitebike: World Rally on WiiWare with little or no fanfare – it was announced exclusively on Nintendo Week and then put on the download service a week or so later.
Excerpt: he year 1985 saw me as a disgruntled seven-year-old. While I was the master of such moves as the Mario Hop and the Goomba Stomp, the Motor-Man Shuffle went over my head like a tetherball at recess. Why does his bike overheat so fast? Why is he eating mud on every other jump?
Summary: A month or so back, Nintendo declared in their new weekly news show on the Nintendo Channel that a surprising announcement would soon be made. Speculations ran wild, but hardly anyone expected the return of Excitebike , especially since Excitebots had released not too long ago.
Conclusion: One of my favorite games from the 80's is the classic Excitebike for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It was originally released in 1984 in Japan and Nintendo made exactly everything work in a motorcross game that even those that normally have zero interest in motorsports fell in love with it.
Conclusion: That's pretty much applicable to the wider experience, really. Like Nintendo's original, ExciteBike: World Rally is simple fun. This is no Trials HD, but it's still great to play as a chummy pass-the-controller game, and nice to have stuck on an SD card for a rainy Sunday afternoon when there are no...
Conclusion: Alkuperäinen Excitebike näki päivänvalon kokonaiset 26 vuotta sitten ja kuului alustansa julkaisupeleihin. Excitebike: World Rally ei muuta monelle rakkaan pelin perusideaa pätkääkään: mopolla huristellaan vasemmalta oikealle yli hyppyjen ja esteiden, samalla prätkän asentoa radan mukaan käännellen.
Pros: Tarkka pelattavuus, hyvä kenttäeditori, pätevä nettipeli
Cons: Ei moninpeliä samalla koneella, ratojen jakaminen vain kavereiden kesken
