Nintendo 64

Excitebike 64

Game Description: Excitebike 64 is an updated version of the classic NES game Excitebike. This realistic motorcycle racing simulation features high-resolution graphics, three progressive bike classes, and both a rider and track editor. Speed through six outdoor courses and six indoor stunt tracks. You can also show off over 32 stunt tricks in this fast action game. As an added bonus, the original NES version is hidden inside this game.

Excitebike 64 – Review

If there's one thing that Nintendo has in its corner, it's the huge collection of franchises that it can go to time and again when in need. With the Nintendo 64 needing to prove itself to the masses, Nintendo tapped Super Mario to showcase the system in the form of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Kart 64. As things became more dire, Star Fox 64 and The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time appeared in all their 64-bit glory to quiet the naysayers. But now as the console reaches the end of its lifecycle, Nintendo seems to be tapping even more of its properties lately. Donkey Kong saw some action last year, and this year Nintendo picked its ancient racing classic that hasn't seen the light of day since the 8-bit NES console was in the talk of the town. I'm talking about Excitebike, the high-flying, 2-D, motoracing title that was a hit in the '80s, but is back in full 3-D under the name Excitebike 64.

Excitebike 64 – Second Opinion

Excitebike 64 is another fun Nintendo racer for the Nintendo 64—no surprise when you consider how much it has in common with Mario Kart 64, Wave Race 64 and F-Zero X. They're all structured exactly the same, but that's okay. All of those games were way fun, and each gave us a different way to race—go karts, jet skis, futuristic hovercraft. With Excitebike 64, we get the Nintendo treatment with dirt bikes, specifically Motocross and Supercross racing.

Perfect Dark Second Opinion

Now that the game is finally here, I am happy to say that Perfect Dark has met most of my expectations and provided one of the most solid multiplayer games on the market to date.

Perfect Dark

Game Description: Joanna Dark must fight power, greed and an intergalactic conspiracy in this spectacular first-person shooter. Perfect Dark shines in solo mode and improves upon the awesome multi-player mode that made predecessor GoldenEye a smash hit.

Perfect Dark Review

Despite being motivated poorly by the storyline and being occasionally convoluted, the multiple objective-based missions are wonderfully well thought out with a nice mix of timed, patterned, and random events that makes playing through them different and refreshing each time.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

Game Description: From grinding to sliding to riding rails, you can do it all in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. You can free-skate around a number of parks, malls, and high schools without any hassles from the cops. Get aggressive and grind like a pro without worrying about skinned knees, and jump off tall buildings and walk away to tell the tale. Now you can become a pro skater without even buying a board.
