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.

The 8th Circuit

  • 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.

  • 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. It had perfect controls, was ridiciously Nintendo-easy but still so challenging that I still play it a couple of times every year to shave a few seconds from my best laps.
  • Pros: Awesome controls, great level editor, immersive, catchy music
  • Cons: No multiplayer offline, too expensive, cluttered graphics

17 February 2010
  • 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. Sivuttaisliike ei ole vapaata, vaan se tapahtuu ainoastaan ratojen neljällä kaistalla pujotellen.
  • Pros: Tarkka pelattavuus, hyvä kenttäeditori, pätevä nettipeli
  • Cons: Ei moninpeliä samalla koneella, ratojen jakaminen vain kavereiden kesken
