    While many racing games allow players a sneak peak at the action on the racetrack, none have shown what goes on behind the scenes. Acclaim gives gamers a unique glimpse at motocross racing celebrity in SX Superstar for the Nintendo GameCube.

    Rags to Riches

    Let's get something straight from the get-go -- you are not Jeremy McGrath. You live in a dingy one-room apartment, earning little more than gas money.

    As a rookie in the pro supercross circuit, you must make a name for yourself if you hope to achieve any sort of superstardom. You can choose from a number of competitions from your race calendar.

    Dial up an answering machine to track your current ranking. Every now and then, you'll get calls from your manager or mom with words of encouragement.

    Fast Track to Fame and Fortune

    Your career is made (or broken) on the racetrack. Most race venues are outdoors in just about every weather condition your mother warned you about.

    The 20-plus tracks will whip you through desert sands, icy tundra and heavily wooded forest. While your main objective is to place first, you can earn bonus bling by pulling off high-flying stunts.

    While the cash flow may seem pretty nice at first, not all of it is profit. Much like real life, you must pay for upkeep on your bike. You'll have to think twice before jumping over that cliff while surfing your ride.

    Tricked Out

    It's nice to see that Acclaim is trying something different with the supercross genre. SX Superstar separates itself from the crowd by mixing intense stunt racing with a dose of the real world. The hard part is deciding whether to come home to your dingy apartment or spend a night in the hospital.
