"Excitebike 64 serves as yet another prime example of Nintendo's sheer mastery when it comes to developing technical racing games. A fully 3D sequel to the NES classic, this title requires players to pay particular attention to the topography of tracks. Features some of the best quality visuals and audio on the N64, although Hi-Res mode comes at the expense of smooth frame rate."

"This was easily my favorite game on N64. The sheer degree of difficulty that each new race provided made the game highly addictive and at times incredibly frustrating. The sounds, the graphics, and the gameplay were in a league of their own at the time of its release and they all still hold up to today's standards. A bona fide must-release on the VC."
"This game is also one of my favorites on the N64. The music was the best, and the race tracks were always awesome to play on, but if anything, what kept me coming back to the game was the challenge. Just when I thought I had my control down, I'd always be left with that same sentence from the announcer. "Jim Rivers! ...eats dirt."
"Excitebike 64 doesn't quite feel like a sequel to the original game, but it definitely feels spiritually in line with Wave Race 64 and 1080° Snowboarding. I prefer the gameplay of Waverace 64, but this game had a lot more features to make up for the lack of wave physic wow factor. 4-player, a track editor, and plenty of modes give Excitebike 64 replayability."
"This game was one of my favourites on N64 and was Leftfield's greatest technical achievement. Visuals and audio were incredible but, just like wave race 64, it was the sheer technical brilliance in the control and constructed illusion of weight and gravity in a virtual environment that put this game above any other in its category. Bring this to virtual console Sorry, only OoT gets 10/10. "
