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.

  • 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.

Excitebike: World Rally

The 8th Circuit
16 November 2009
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Оригинальная Excitebike могла быть намного популярнее, если бы в ней была возможность сыграть вдвоем. Приобретая Excitebike: World Rally , хочется именно этого – реализовать давнее желание и сразиться с друзьями в одной из самых простых и забавных мотогонок. Но сперва, конечно, попробовать однопользовательский режим – много ли изменили и добавили? В глаза бросается обновленная графика – полигонов не очень много, но вполне достаточно, чтобы не придираться к их количеству.
