Solid Game!

I got this game because the physics in the MotoGP series has been going downhill quickly since '06. The bikes seem to handle in a realistic way (yes, I have a sportbike), and the adjustments make a big difference in the handling. The graphics are not as flashy as the MotoGP games, but the gameplay is solid. It's difficult enough to keep me interested, but I don't have the same interest in the riders or the bikes that I have of the MotoGP series. Maybe MotoGP 2011 will have more to offer

A better substitute for MotoGP fans

If you are tired of playing MotoGP games, then this game will bring a welcome change for you. The gameplay might not have changed from it's predecessor as it's not possible. But the improved AI, graphics, more lenient towards sim and less arcade feel will give joy to the Bike Racer. Get newer version than this if you can, else this is good too.

The single best bike racing sim out there

There's so much to enjoy in this one if you're a motorbike racing fan. Arcade and Sim mode both offer something different, and Sim boots up the challenge nice and high for when you've played through everything on "easy" Arcade mode.

The game looks great, and despite being a little older now, still manages to convey that freaky sense of barely controlled speed so many others can't. I've had a small amount of lag here and there, but only during distant views when the pack is bunched up in a corner - not game-breaking lag, mind you, but it is there nonetheless. Controls are very well placed, and you'll spend very little time learning how to control your two-wheeled beast - actually making it through a race though, if you're anything like me, might take a teensy bit longer. Sounds are very good, and racing is nice and loud, with a true feeling of speed being shown by the high-pitched scream of each bike as it rips around the track.

The multiplayer is truly where this title shines, though, and is the meat and bones of Superbike World Championship. There's still a massive community behind it, games are easy to organize, and there's never been any problems with connection drops or anything else of the sort when I've been playing.

Fantastic game, and one any racing fan will enjoy, not just those into bike racing. There's something here for everyone, and the price it's at makes it a crazy good deal.

The problem of sport is that every year, "the players" change team. In this way, every year, the game of that year will be old the next year. But what is the real problem on sport games? The game is always the same every year, some change on graphics, some new stuff and here there is the "new Sport Game 3000". Fortunately it is not the case of SBK X. In fact the game offer good stuff, like the Evolving Track, the two different mode (Arcade and Simulation), a new carreer like a pilot, the improvement of the AI. I don't recommend SBK X only for one reason, SBK 2011 has the the same price.
