Saw this game was unforgivably underrated on the all-time list, so I created an account just to do my small part to help correct that,
Excitebike 64 is one of my favourite games of all-time. It's was super fun to play when it came out, and it's super fun to play now.
That's all that really needs to be said.
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.
The best thing about Excitebike 64 is that the races are fast and fun. If you use turbo properly, the races will move along quickly with lots of big air. Even though only six riders total are in the pack in the one-player mode, the artificial intelligence is setup so that a cluster of riders will be relatively close to each other.
Dirt bike game that concentrates on the racing rather than tricks. The races themselves are pretty short but make for intense and skill-reliant matches and as such is one of the better racers on the N64.
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!
