  1. The presentation is flawed and even though SBK 07 looks rough in parts, we can't recall actually enjoying a bike game on PlayStation 2 this much since, well, since PlayStation 2 began.
  2. SBK '07 succeeds at being accessible to casual Superbike fans while also catering for the hardcore market.
  3. SBK '07 is a good mix of simulation and arcade-style racing, and it's a welcome change of pace from the Moto GP series of racing games.
  4. Overall Can't ride a bike? This is the next best thing. Can ride a bike? Guess what, it still is.
  5. The mix of modes, coupled with the strong simulation settings, create a challenging yet rewarding experience that fans of the sport will enjoy over the summer months.

    The lack of content lets down an otherwise competent racer.

    SBK ends up being a far more accessible and ultimately more enjoyable experience -- even if that experience isn't terribly compelling at the end of the day.

    It's good to see someone taking bike racing seriously, but make sure you can do without stabilisers - this is no easy ride. [May 2007, p.84]

    The experience certainly isn’t awful, but nor is it in any way exceptional – and up against the accomplished competition, that simply won’t be good enough. [June 2007, p.93]

    Fine for fans, but no-one else should touch it with a greasy finger. [July 2007, p.114]

    A technically tight simulator, but lacks the spark needed to offer broad appeal. [June 2007, p.83]
