With more then decent graphics, controls, and sound going for the game, you may want to try it out, or by chance buy the game. The only problem is that there were two other motorbike games released on the N64. Nintendo's ol' racing classic update, Excitebike 64, and Acclaim's Jeremy McGarth Supercoss. With those two speeding down the track as well, you may want to hold onto your money to test each one out first. Although, if you decide to pick this one up now, you won't go wrong here.

This game will really make you slow down and pay attention to the simulation aspects of dirt bike racing. If you don't think that would be your type of game, I suggest you stay away from this one because you will only get frustrated. If you are the type of gamer who is willing to invest the time in learning how to control the bikes, you should have some fun with this title. I really liked the freestyle courses but did get bored with them after a while. This game is not for everyone but it is worth a rental to see if it is right for you.

A decent and solid game. The simulation side of the game is very detailed and excellently executed. I can't venture to say that it breaks any ground or that it's incredible. The one feeling I get from this game is that it feels very Playstationish to me. Sony games never seemed to have the 'pop' that I like in my gaming and it seems that Supercross 2000 feels exactly like a Playstation game in that regard. That's probably why I'm an N64 fan and not a PSX weenie. I don't think that Hyper Bike will surpass this game so I hope that Left Field (of the Kobe Series) can do a MUCH better job with their installment of the Excite Bike series then EA did with Supercross 2000.

Like I said at the top, if you enjoy simulation-heavy racers, and are a big supercross fan, you may enjoy this game. If you just want a fun, arcade racing experience, you may want to hold off and see what Jeremy McGrath has to offer in a few months.

Supercross 2000 spielt sich nicht unbedingt so fantastisch gut wie ein echter Spitzentitel, hat aber aufgrund der hartnäckigen Computer-Fahrer seinen Reiz. Vor allem die Stuntparcours sind im Zweispieler-Modus eine spaßige Sache. Dort wetteifert ihr unter Zeitdruck um Punkte. Wer ein Fan von Fun-Sportspielen wie zum Beispiel 1080° ist, wird durchaus auch an Supercross 2000 seine Freude haben und die Stunts üben, bis die Highscore-Anzeige glüht.

If you're a fan of supercross, and you've been waiting for a good game to come along on the N64, Supercross 2000 is good enough as a first effort, but hopefully we'll see some control tweaks and some improved performance in the sound and graphics departments in the unannounced-but-you-know-EA-will-eventually-do-it sequel.

Still, I think when my friend gets his hands on this game, he'll forgive me, Art Eckman or no. This is as close as you can get to real supercross racing...without breaking a leg, that is.

Supercross 2000 is a good, welcome addition to the system's library. Fans of Supercross are in for a treat, and non-fans can find something to like in here as well. If you're tired of traditional road racing, give this one a try. If nothing else, try it for the fun Freestyle mode.

While we're all for games that accurately emulate vehicle racing, especially something as exciting as motorcycle supercross, there's something to be said for making games fun at the same time. Rabid motorcycle fans will likely find a lot of good stuff in Supercross 2000 with its sim-heavy realism, need for tight control to get around corners and the chance to emulate greats like Mike Metzger and Jeff Emig in high-flyin' freestyle stunts. But for the rest of the gaming public looking for a fun motorcycle game, frustration levels run high in this one. Cornering is a lesson in patience, and although the high-res graphics (with an Expansion Pak) look great, textures tend to get rather bland pretty quickly. It's great that it's realistic, but that doesn't mean it's fun.
