Dec 20, 2011There was a reason this was free and should have stayed that way. The game is utterly underwhelming in many aspects. You've heard the word classic but let me tell you this is anything but a 'classic' experience. Gameplay:3
Lasting appeal: 1

Jun 22, 20113D Classics: Excitebike may be vaguely fun in very short play sessions, but with the advances in technology and a superior WiiWare version available, it simply feels dated. The 3D visuals are fantastic and the added save functionality is an improvement, but those alone are not enough to keep every player hooked.
