Conclusion: If you cannot tell by now I thought SX Superstar to be horrendous and no where near the $29.99 price tag in worth. For such a cheap game if only one or two aspects of it could have been decent I would instantly recommend it for all those race fans out there. Unfortunately, I cannot do so with a clear conscience. The joke of a campaign mode, horrid controls, laughable graphics, and decent soundtrack all mush together to make one hell of a beer coaster.
Excerpt: By Gary Kearney Well now, what do we have here? Hmmm, it seems to be another in the never-ending string of “extreme” games. If there is one thing that game makers know what to do it’s to pummel something once good and original into the ground. Our newest example is right here in SX Superstar by Acclaim. I can imagine the scene now: somewhere at Acclaim HQ the managers are all in a room planning out the next several games. This list of new games is blank.
Excerpt: SX Superstar is the latest in Acclaim’s long line of “Jeremy McGrath” games…just without the McGrath. This year, Acclaim dumped the coverboy and went with a generic approach, presumably to show a new direction in the game. The McGrath series of games have long been known for their shoddy control and less depth than a kiddie pool. Unfortunately for SX Superstar (SX), the problems that hindered previous incarnations of McGrath are still very much alive.
Conclusion: SX Superstar is a game that tries hard to be different. With its beefed up career mode and plenty of tracks, it has enough there to keep dirt bike fans busy for a while. But with washed out graphics, drab sound and no custom soundtrack support, this is a title that is probably best left to a rental or for young kids to play.
Pros: easy to pick up and play, easy to win races, thumping punk/rock soundtrack from popular artists, budget priced at $49.95
Cons: very average graphically, little replayability value, very limited multiplayer
Conclusion: Le principe de la « gestion » de carrière est plutôt marrant mais le gameplay en course se montre finalement peu intéressant. I.A capricieuse, indications mal faites en Baja et conduite plate gâchent le plaisir. Ni bon ni foncièrement mauvais, SX Superstar pourra toujours vous divertir... un petit peu.
Conclusion: Dennoch: Lediglich Menschen, die alle Xbox-Spiele ihr Eigen nennen wollen oder aber jede Nacht vom Motocross-Sport träumen, sollten hier zuschlagen. Alle anderen schauen sich lieber bei der Konkurrenz um und lassen dieses Spiel im Laden liegen.
