  1. We predict with confidence that Excitebike 64 will go down in gaming history as the best motorcycle game ever.
  2. With a small drawback if you're coming to this game for the music, it is the best cycle game out there, not to mention one of the best N64 racers there is.
  3. The tracks are stunning and the physics engine manages to feel realistic, but also work perfectly as a game.
  4. The game isn't perfect—I would have liked even more tracks to race on as well as a few more racers—but there is no arguing the excellent gameplay.
  5. Serious air is the truth with this bad boy. You better have skipped lunch if you're going to get on this wild ride!!
  6. Add to the mix a host of extras like special tracks, detailed graphics and a couple of big air tricks and you've got a pretty entertaining little racing game.
  7. The control's not user-friendly from the get-go; you'll need time and patience to hang with the big boys.

    Probably the best N64 motocross game made and even today the game-play still holds up today due to the authentic physics and challenging tracks, highly recommended if you like motocross and are feeling retro. Expand

    Very fun game. It also takes a long time to beat the game like Jason said.

    The best game for the Nintendo 64 that I've played. It's hard to unlock all the tracks, but who cares? It's still fun to play, with nice graphics, and even better sound effects. A must-play. Collapse

    It's not that bad. But it takes a long time to finish the whole game.

    Excitebike 64 is one of the best racers for the N64, with good graphics, easy controls, and insane game-play. This is a game that you will not regret adding to your collection. Expand

    What's so good about this game?

    Excitebike 64 is definitely forgettable title. There wasn't anything wrong with it, but there wasn't anything that drew me in. I noticed this title tries to transfer the original Excitebike into the 3-D realm, which worked for titles like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64, but it just makes Excitebike 64 a mediocre motocross that can be compared to the average $0.99 PlayStation 2 motocross game of today. I am sure back then it was good, but today, it doesn't hold up. Just forget about this title! Overall, good graphics of the time, but for present day standards, it's just better to watch it burn in a bonfire! Expand
