A realistic motorcycle racer very close to the original 1995 arcade machine and certainly better than Hang-On GP. There is some draw-in, but the game moves fast and smooth. I recommend this game along with the 3D Pad to control it.

Before you'll play Manx TT Super Bike, you must be prepared to get used to an announcer yelling crappy English speaking voice-overs. When the game starts he already goes: 'Manx TT Super Bike!!' While playing the game, you'll usually hear him scream: 'Hakkinen Checkcoin!' with which he means 'passing the checkpoint!'

Mega Fun
Manx TT war trotz der bemerkenswerten (oder gerade deshalb?) Hydraulik in der Spielhalle nicht der erhoffte Knaller. Gleiches kann man auch über die Saturn-Variante sagen, die zweifelsohne Spielspaß bietet, jedoch mit der Racer-Elite nicht ganz mithalten kann. Ein gravierender Schwachpunkt ist nämlich die magere Anzahl von Rundkursen. Zwar gibt es einen Mirror-Modus gratis, dennoch bleiben es unter dem Strich ohne Wenn und Aber zwei Strecken, die grafisch zudem recht identisch sind. Apropos "Grafik", die texturierten Polygon-Objekte sehen ziemlich farbenfroh und ansehnlich aus, beim Grafikaufbau happert es jedoch augenscheinlich, was im Eifer des Gefechts jedoch nicht weiter auffällt. Vom Fahrverhalten her muß man dem Racer hingegen uneingeschränktes Lob aussprechen.

Un bon jeu de moto, avec une jolie réalisation qui prendra toute sa dimension avec un pad analogique. Malgré un contenu (très) maigre (2 circuits) ManX TT saura combler vos attentes de motard et vous procurera de bonnes sensations! Il est cependant regrettable que certains aspects n'aient pas été pris en compte (gestion des collisions défaillante, impossibilité de tomber, pas possible de frimer avec une roue arrière, accélération un peu molle), pour ce qui aurait été le Sega Rally sur deux roues!

It seems that, more often than not, motorcycle racing games are the poor relation of their four-wheeled cousins, always appearing to follow a standard formula: take the engine of a successful car race smash, replace the car graphics with bikes, replace the controls and generally make things lean about a lot more. At least that's what Manx TT feels like.

Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
With such a shortage of motorcycle racing sims on the market, any release is welcome - but one that's actually fun is nice. ManxTT is fun, not to mention fast, graphically solid and possibly the last good racing game to come out for the Saturn (pure speculation of course). Similar both in frame rate and look to Sega Rally, you have your choice of two tracks (four, if you count mirror mode) which surprisingly will keep you busy for a while. The game is good on it's own, but to really tap it, use the analog controller.

The Video Game Critic
When you're in third place and still run out of time, clearly the difficulty is too steep. A skill select option would have been nice. The game automatically saves your best times in each mode. One of the more comical aspects of Manx is the voice announcer. With that lisp and effeminate voice, could he possibly sound more queer?! Manx TT Super Bike arrived on the scene as the Saturn was fading, so it didn't get much attention, but if you enjoy racing action this is a quality title.

Manx TT Super Bike, Sega's latest arcade-to-Saturn racer, is finally out in the States. Based on the arcade game of the same name, Manx TT is significantly better than Sega's last Saturn motorcycle racer, the dismal Hang-On GP. However, despite the obvious gameplay improvements and smooth-flowing graphics, the limited number of tracks may scare off all but the hard-core players. Manx TT fails to deliver what only an exceptional few racing games possess: long-lasting play experience.

Hätte man Manx TT für zu Hause überarbeitet, also ein paar mehr Strecken hinzugefügt, die CPU Gegner fairer gemacht und die Steuerung entschärft, wäre es sicher ein tolles Spiel geworden. So ist es einfach nur eine Spielhallenkonvertierung, die aber genau dort mehr Spaß macht, weil man sich eben wesentlich kürzer damit beschäftigt.
