A staple of any NES collection, Excitebike provides enduring gameplay with its straightforward motocross. The charmingly cute visuals have the distinct arcade-style look that dominated Nintendo's early NES titles, with extra touches like a cameraman in the background who follows your motions as you ride by. Although the controls are basic, navigating jumps, ramps and obstacles requires strategic use of turbo and wheelies. Five tracks are available to race alone or against CPU-controlled opponents, but in both cases you're really racing against the clock. The design mode was the first of its kind in a console game, and greatly extends the life of the title by featuring 19 different components you can piece together to build your own course. ~ Skyler Miller, All Game Guide
