Excitebike: World Rally Review

Cheat Code Central
24 May 2010
  • 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. The lack of local multiplayer is truly a drag, and for the price, the unlockables don't do much to strengthen the value. That being said, Excitebike has a lot of personality, and it's certainly a game worthy of a new lease on life.

Review: Excitebike World Rally (Nintendo Wii)

Diehard GameFAN
8 May 2010
  • 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. For fans of the original NES Excitebike , World Rally will feel familiar and comfortable.

  • 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? was tricky and crude, but it showcased advanced mechanics. A remake is long overdue.

  • Excerpt: Hey hey hey Circuiters. I got bored of Nintendo Weekly, so I have passed it off to another writer. You can expect more regular updates of it now! But that means I now have a column to do, which is where the Dossier comes in. As a journalist, I receive all sorts of tips, hints, and otherwise. It's part of the job. I also receive women. That's not part of the job. Every week we'll pull out a new file from the dossier, and see what it includes.

  • 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. I’m here to say that Excitebike: World Rally certainly lives up to all the hype Nintendo created.
