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.
Excerpt: Climax est plutôt prolifique ces temps-ci. Après le grand Moto GP 2 sur Xbox, le nettement moins convaincant Speed Kings, voici un nouveau titre orienté arcade teinté de TOCA Race Driver et qui vient se placer quelque part entre le sympa et le dispensable.
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.
