    Pop a wheelie!



    Eat your heart out, Ricky Carmichael.

    Features


    • Five challenging tracks
    • Track design mode
    • Race against time or other computer bikers


    In the 1980s, few things were extreme. Maybe traffic in Los Angeles and jalapeno peppers, but that was it. Now that everything and its tattooed dog are Xtreme, Nintendo has rereleased the granddaddy of high-flying, knee-scraping, body-tumbling racing games: Excitebike. You can have a dirt-track date with high-revving racing thanks to the NES Classics series.

    The concept is simple: Go fast and win. That's easier said than done. Your biker must keep his bearings as he's flying through the air, avoid getting clipped by other racers and stay cool under pressure or his bike will overheat. If you fall off the bike, mash the A and B Buttons to make your racer run back to the bike.

    Tired of racing on the circuit? Make your own course in Design mode. Here, you have access to all the ramps, mounds, bridges and other obstacles Excitebike has to offer. The save function lets you hang on to your high scores and track design for all the world to see and envy. Send a picture to Ricky Carmichael of your best time and a note reading, "Call me if you want some lessons." On second thought, scrap that idea and just enjoy the return of Excitebike.

    Bottom Line

    Don't try to be Evel Knievel out there. Broken bones might build up your street cred, but in Excitebike, the finish line is where the glory's at.

    REVENGE AT THE MOTORCROSS



    Top cyclists from all over the world have gathered to test their skill and daring in the Excitebike World Championship--the first ever Motorcross Designer Race. Each rider must not only overcome the incredible dangers of Motocross racing, he must design his winning or losing course. The anticipation in the air is apparent as the riders, with engines revving, ride up to the starting line.

    GAME PLAY: Your heart races at the sound of the starting gun and adrenaline surges through your body as you accelerate, pulling ahead of the pack. You have been working on your course design for years, and have come up with what you think is a winner--a course of death defying daredevil jumps of every description. Your objective is revenge against your old adversary, Arch Rivale, who humiliated you at the last Excitebike race. You can still hear his taunting laughter as he rode over your foot, flattening it like a road bunny. Will you finally have your revenge? Or will Arch Rivale have the last laugh? Again.
