There's not a whole lot to say as there's not a whole lot to the game. There is a "campaign mode" which has you travel to tracks which take a minute at a time to beat on average to earn a Gold medal. There is no story mode.
The gameplay is press the gas while you lean forward or back on your bike. The game is a side scrolling racing game on rails. You can only move forward and can't position your bike along the "track". There are more movement options on Excitebike for NES than this game has.
There's no on-line multiplayer, only couch which I did not try. The on-line tournaments feel like an extension of campaign as you stack your times up against other people.. but none that you play against live.
The "announcers" repeat mostly the same lines on each course. If you're having a hard time with a course, prepare to hear the same speech numerous times.
The graphics are really nice and your friends names showing up as you race is a cool feature so you know where you stack against those on your friends list. You can also customize your biker, which seems mostly worthless in a racing game where no one else will ever see you on a track with the lack of good multi-player.
In all, even the graphics and cool features can't help the repetitiveness of the audio and the gameplay.
I don't know if i played this game long enough but it was probably the worst game I've played.. Always "crashing" and not really realistic at all. It's not racing more just accelerating or braking in one straight line... Thank god for Gamefly

I gave it a three because I felt the need to be fair. Why is that? I honestly couldn't play this game for longer than about 20 minutes. It's very boring and monotonous if you ask me. Also, what's the point?
Again, probably didn't give it enough of a shot but I feel I'm better because of it.
