Simple Fun
21 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excitebike is one of those games you can't help but love because it is simple but effect in terms of fun.

But of course it was release on the Nintendo Entertainment System so you should expect nothing less from the NES.

Nintendo has been known for years to make games that are like fine wine only get better with age

What makes the game such a hit is that fact that you can take a sports game and make it have a lasting appeal like Donkey Kong or Super Mario Bros.

The game of course does present it problems mostly with speed control you have to be very careful when you're jumping over ramps or you will crash and lose time as you rush back to your bike.

But for the 8 Bit game it features colorful graphics and the sound is what you can expect from the era of 8 bit.

The controls are simple and easy to pick up and play so gamers should not have any problems when they pick up this classic game.

Overall if you want to play fun classic game then get Excitebike while it does have some challenges it is worth your while for the fact it is just plain fun.

I give Excitebike an 8 out of 10
