I grew up on the original, so I eagerly bought the 64 version when it was released. I enjoyed it, but nowhere near as much as the original to be honest. The graphics were great for the time, and the racing mechanics seemed spot on. What did you all think?

I loved Excitebike 64 and really liked that it had the original in the game. I really enjoyed the racing, I raced motocross at the time so I was very into these types of games. I loved the soccer and hill climb challenge as well. Really fun multiplayer game.

I bought this one sometime last year, but haven't really played the main game all too much. If memory serves, I remember playing a few races and liking the tracks okay enough, but ultimately gravitated back to EA's Supercross 2000 for some reason. I think it had something to do with how the bikes controlled. :/

Now that I think about it, I spent a lot more time on the original Excitebike game (which comes with Excitebike 64). It's so simple yet so thrilling to try to reach the finish line in time.

I really like Excitebike 64 the controls feel good, tracks are decent, graphics aren't bad there isn't much fog like some racers either. Offers something different to the other racer games on the system. I haven't played the predecessor so have nothing to compare it to.

This was one of the first games I bought when I got back into the N64. I remember it sorta being one of the last top notch N64 titles back then.

I played quite a bit of it and really enjoyed it. It's not the original, but it stands solidly on its own!

Back in the day I recommend Excitbike to some mates.
They were all into motorbike and that and this game had the best reviews
They loved it, and I enjoyed it when I played but couldn't compete with them.

Got the game for myself in 2007 for a great price and have loved playing it.
Much like Wave Race and 1080 it has that perfect learning curve and fantastic physics.
Easy to learn, hard to master.
Played through the first cup last night and eased back into it on Ametuer difficulty.
Won the cup pretty easy and broke my old record for Leftys Mill!
I love how I manage to retain my skills pretty well ?

I will post my time tonight.
Wonder if there is PAL/NTSC time difference?

EDIT: 00:57.36 is my Hot Lap ?

And 01:57.32 is my race time.

It's probably nothing special, but something to aim for ?

There's no need to explain nothing else :-P

The only small flaw of the game is the absence of some really epic musics.

@Italia: Welcome back! Where you been hiding? ?

@Buddy: Yeah it's a great game.
The physics and the courses are great.
Oh! Did I mention that there is a track editor!
Had great fun with that back in the day.
Kinda makes me wish the Dex Drive or something similar took off.

Hey mate. I'm working on F-1 Racing Championship records. Nillew opened a section on Cyberscore, so I want to set some ultimate times.
I'm battling against an incredibly good Italian gamer. Unfortunately my thumb is now injured, due the battle haha. And the thumbstick is gone. So I have to wait for a new controller and I have to make my thumb rest for a while :-P
