SBK X Superbike World Championship
I can't believe what I just played! I thought this game has trophies but it doesn't. I also thought this game has custom soundtracks where you play your own music but I guess not. (Sigh) better get my money back.
I LUV THIS GAME. I HAV MOTO GP 09/10 SBK X IS BETTER. IM NO FAN OF MOTOR CYCELS BUT SBK X CHANGED MY MIND!!!!! THANK U PRODUCERS & ALL THE SUPER BIKE RACERS!!!!!!!!!!!!
A lot of people will buy this game for the deep simulator experience that it offers, and it does, but I wanted a game I could pick up and play with friends and family as well and the ARCADE portion of this game is something you can pick up and play pretty much right away. The game is a lot of fun and well presented, and if you are good enough to play the simulator mode then you will enjoy that too.
Buy MotoGP9/10 instead
I bought this game because I thought it would be better than SBK: World Superbike Championship . I was WAY wrong. SBK by Tommo has better graphics and gameplay. in SBK X, this bike turns, well, nearly not at all, at any speed faster than a turtle. The graphics also, IMO, not as good as SBK: World Superbike Chamionship. I will be trading this in for something else worth my money. I am very disappointed in this game. MotoGP 9/10 is a way better title and has better gameplay and graphics. I did not go past the first practice because I could not stand that my bike would not turn. Even with default settings. It's nice to be able to customize your rider and bike, but it's not worth much if the gameplay (in this case putting a bike on the track) sucks.
Forza with Motorcycles
I went to get the original SBK, but this SBK X seemed much improved. The game play is exactly what i expected and wanted. A very realistic Motorcycle Racing Sim. It has Arcade which is the most FUN, Simulation mode, which is ultra realistic physics wise, and multiplayer. it's also the only bike game officially sponsored by sbk championship with real riders. I wish you could customize ur bike little more look wise, but that's not really what the sport is about. You can do a fair bit of tuning and changing things in your garage and that gives a real simulation feel.
in arcade mode your guy has a little more tug with steering, and also seems to slide more back tire if you try around turns. The game has value for the amount of options to race and play. it feels pretty real when racing in both cams. i love first person seeing the gauges and all. it really seems that you're gripping the track with the raw power of the bike. a good sense of speed and very challenging. I highly recommend this game as the current best moto sim. only wish the graphics were more photo real (tho my tv is only 720 so 1080 might look sweeter)
A great overall game, don't listen to EXTREMELY negative ratings, they are from people attached to other games. I tried moto gp 08 / 09 demos and wasn't impressed ever with the physicists.
SBK X is the one i bought. Very happy with it. Jump online and race!! bring it on Rossi ;)
SBX is a a M/C game I have been waiting for!
This is a motorcycle roadracing game that should have been out years ago. Finally we will be able to enjoy World Superbikes w/ riders of present and past. How awesome is that? I have most of the m/c games out there. Tourist Trophy (PS2), WSBK 09, MotoGp'08'09'10, were all asweome but this game may beat them!
