Excitebike: World Rally on Revolution

 

Like The NES Version But With Online Multiplayer

Eat my 8-bit dust

Tight, responsive gameplay ; Faithful to original ; Online multiplayer

Lack of local multiplayer ; Wii waggle controls, at times ; Might be too "retro" for some

World Rally's angled 3D look is a great update that stays in line with the original game while adding a little more variety in terms of scenery. The obstacles look exactly like they did on the NES, which makes many of the levels feel pleasantly...

Remaking an old game can be tricky, especially if it is a title that is heralded as a classic in its own right. There is such a fine line that is walked in producing the remake; it is very hard to find the right balance between updating enough of the...

Excitebike: World Rally is a really good example of how to take a classic, simple game and bring it into the modern era. While it isn't technically spectacular compared to other HD games today, it has a fun factor and quality that is rare in gaming all...

Review: Excitebike World Rally (Nintendo Wii)

 

The single-player mode is a circuit-based progression through various tracks racing against computer racers. There are four circuits, which are unlocked one at a time as the one before is completed. The time to beat to unlock the next level earns the...

Nintendo continues to vex longtime gamers with its combination of apathy and direct love. Excitebike World Rally falls squarely in the latter category, a love letter to 8-bit NES fans with a sequel that had never really been delivered. There is nothing...

Welcome backflip to Excitebike.

Great, nostalgic racer; Relevant updates to the gameplay; Strong online multiplayer

but no local split-screen mode; Limited motion controls can be confusing

The Consensus: Excitebike: World Rally Review

 

Not-so-Excitebike.

Fun for a few minutes

An unremarkable remake of a game that didn't age too well

Nothing's truly new or captivating here. It feels like a half-hearted cash-in designed to prey on our nostalgia, not unlike Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled. It's nothing but a curiosity, fun for the few minutes prior to the...

ExciteBike: World Rally Review | Wii

 

Oh rally?

There's always been a beautiful simplicity to ExciteBike, and Monster's gentle remake hasn't muddled things up very much. One button means "go fast", another button means "go a bit faster", and that's about all World Rally has to say on the subject of...

Excitebike: World Rally

 

Back in 1985 the best way for gamers to get their motocross-racing fix was by playing Excitebike on their NES. Jumping over obstacles, racing against the clock, and knocking other riders to the ground was flat out fun, as older gamers and Wii owners...

A proper update to the original, online multiplayer and the new track editor are nice touches

No offline multiplayer, somewhat bland visual presentation

A timeless classic and a legendary remnant from Nintendo's glory days, this NES motocross classic sees new life on the WiiWare service with this revamped racer.
