 The Final Word game review

Excitebike 64 -- Left Field Productions/Nintendo

Hmmm... I had a hard time going either way on this game. First off I've never been a big dirtbike, motocross racing fan. I never really got into the original game, and I just didn't find this version of the game very engaging on it's own merits.

Sure lots of people liked it and it made for a decent upgrade to a classic, but I found the game hard to control. The tracks weren't all that exciting, and to be honest, I became pretty board with the game after only a couple of hours of play. It didn't get any better from there, since once I turned it off, I just couldn't find the motivation to even turn it on again later for another run.

The graphics and sound were ok, but again, nothing to write home about. All in all though, the more I think about it, I'd say skip it.
