    I was looking forward to this seeing the makers did Excite Bike 64 as well as a couple of good similar games for PS2 but sadly reviews are saying its awful.

    Yep, works on Pal. If you liked good ol' Excite Bike on N64 then you'll most likely have fun with this.

    Controls are not very forgiving at first, but you get used to it and they become quite intuitive. It is great fun doing tricks to add to the amount of nitro you have, and then doing massive jumps.

    Very arcade-like, but then, that is what I expected.

    At this stage I am surprised about the poor review scores...

    Wow, even Nintendo themselves is getting tired of the half-baked "efforts" on Wii now.

    Working on PAL Wiikey 1.9g

    The game is OK, the graphics sucks hardcore but the gameplay is quite fun.
    Tried online but i couldn't find any players ;(

    why don't they just revive the original excite bike, 2 1/2D side scrolling? wouldn't that be simple enough..probably only took them a couple months to code the original game................................................

    That'd be cool as an unlockable.

    I also quite enjoyed this game. But then again - I do like arcade racers and I have an attention span like a 3 year old so the 5 minuttes I could concentrate I had a blast.

    Edit: Works on pal, cyclowiz 2.6b

    Was looking forward to this. Thought it may be as good as excite truck. If its got 3.5, I'm not going to bother.
