About

Face crazy curves, hairpin turns, and daredevil jumps as you race toward
the checkered flag and the Excitebike championship. Race against the
clock or challenge an opponent. You must keep your bearings as you fly
through the air and avoid getting clipped by other racers. Stay cool
under pressure, or your bike will overheat. If you get tired of racing
on the circuit, create your own course in Design mode. There you have
access to all the ramps, mounds, bridges, and other obstacles Excitebike
has to offer!
This classic game is part of the Virtual Console service, which brings you great games created for consoles such as NES™, Super NES™ and Game Boy™ Advance. We hope you'll enjoy the new features (including off-TV play) that have been added to this title. See more Virtual Console games for Wii U.

Excitebike reviews and comments

Not bad, I think for the time it was actually pretty good. Hard to recommend it today though.
You play as an immortal biker that can roll 30 times in a row with his bike, going downhill. Pretty cool guy, wish we heard more about him. Anyways the game is exactly what the title says, you... Wait, no it's not. You don't actually excite your bike. Huh, I feel ripped off.

The stunts are fun and the controls are good. The physics are actually impressive for a game its age. So what's wrong with it? Well there's just not much to do, it's very repetitive.
You just jump around with your bike hoping that it won't fly away at 3000 mph and you won't have to hear the DREADFUL sound of you running back. Seriously it's hella creepy. And it takes too long.

Overall, rating out of 100:
Story: 0
You're just a biker guy, and that's fine, no story needed.

Gameplay: 10
It's pretty fun for the first few minutes, then it gets boring.

Graphics: 10
It's okay.

Sound/Music: 2
There's only a soundtrack for the title screen, but that's actually good because the music sounds dorky as hell, give it a listen:
BAHAHAHAHAH

That leaves the game with a front-flippin' 22 out of 400. I gotta listen to that title screen theme again. BAHAHAHAHA
Gameplay 7/10. Graphics 8/10. Soundtrack 3/10. Storyline 6/10. OVERALL 6.0/10. (A: 5.5)
