  1. A great bike racer; with fun gameplay, sharp visuals, good sound effects, rock & roll music and enough adrenaline to keep you pumped, this is definitely one game that stands out from the crowd - and if you make a space for it on your games shelf, I'm sure you'll agree.
  2. 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]
  3. 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.
  4. A technically tight simulator, but lacks the spark needed to offer broad appeal. [June 2007, p.83]
  5. 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.
  6. 60
    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.
  7. While SBK-07 is a game that will appeal to Superbike geeks, it’s only as geeky as you want it to be.
  8. 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]
  9. 65
    The lack of content lets down an otherwise competent racer.
  10. 79
    Not being able to punch people off their bikes is something of an oversight we feel. Punching makes everything better. Always. [Issue#154, p.87]
  11. 76
    SBK-07 would seem to have all the necessary ingredients to keep both casual gamers and hardcore Superbike fans happy. With the variable difficulty and realism settings you should be able to find the perfect balance to suit your needs.
  12. Fine for fans, but no-one else should touch it with a greasy finger. [July 2007, p.114]
  13. Overall Can't ride a bike? This is the next best thing. Can ride a bike? Guess what, it still is.
  14. 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.
  15. SBK '07 succeeds at being accessible to casual Superbike fans while also catering for the hardcore market.
