  1. This no-nonsense motorcycle racing simulation is punishing and inaccessible, but it's still fun.
  2. Despite the extreme variation of difficulty, this is just an average racer.

    To be fair, SBK-08 feels built down to a [stringent] price rather than unloved or uninspired. [Oct 2008, p.105]

    SBK Superbike World Championship is simply boring. Everything works on some level, and the actual driving mechanics are functional, but not fun.

    Disappointingly averge and will only appeal to motorbike fanatics. [Issue#172, p.88]
  6. SBK really works hard on being the realistic superbike racer people would love to see, but too many gameplay and other flaws hold it back from reaching its true potential.

    Ugly and uncompromisingly tough. One for bike fanatics only. [Nov 2008, p.72]

It's very realistic and due to this, is inaccessible to casual gamers. You must take every corner with absolute precision or everyone will speed past you and fling you into last place. Instant Action, the first mode of the game, puts you straight into a race without managing your bike. Quick Play is the same as Instant Action, except that you can edit your bike and mess around with the different parts of it before you start racing. Race Weekend is an online game mode that puts you in a race against other PSN/Xbox Live players. There is also a championship mode that is a series of different races with different bikes. Overall, SBK 08 is an inaccessibly difficult racing game with no career mode and good graphics (for the time). Full Review »
