Lots of options do not a great game make. This game certainly gives you plenty of choices, but the racing still misses the checkered flag.

The Racing World

Created by Domark, Kawasaki bears a strong resemblance to that company's previous Formula One game, except you're on two wheels, not four.

You race on international tracks from a behind-the-handlebars perspective with lots of options, including 15 tracks and three basic ways to alter your bike. The action's fast, and your bike really responds to your controls (notice the differences when the weather turns ugly).

Unfortunately, the graphics look like any number of other racing games. Big, blocky polygons scroll toward you, and undetailed landscapes surround you. You don't see sparks, smoke from bikes, or juicy wrecks -- the fun touches that other racing games provide. On the positive side, the many tunnels and overpasses add to the game's complexity, and your on-screen map is easy to see.

This game has some good sounds, especially the tire screeches. However, real motorcycle engines are pretty annoying, and you'll probably turn these whining engine noises right down.

ProTip: Use the pro's advice when adjusting your bike. Slick tires are best for dry tracks.

Racer's Edge

While not the best racing of the season, Kawasaki Superbike Challenge is still decent, and it has enough variety to suit all skill levels. Fanatics can even take on the eight-hour Suzuka course.

But is it championship-caliber competition? Only novice gamers might think so.

To learn the best racing line on a new course, follow closely behind lead bikes.

Game Reviews

Handheld racing doesn't get much better than this. Options galore make Kawasaki score.

Kawasaki comes complete with ten international tracks,11 ways to customize your bike, and three play modes. Practice and Arcade modes let you select any track, while Superbike puts you on a season schedule. The action's fast, and the two-player racing's even better.

The graphics are good for a handheld game. Big bikes and rainy tracks add interest to the behind-the-rider view, but you don't get GP Rider's wild wrecks. The whiny engine sounds are pretty typical.

While not totally innovative, KSC does this genre proud. It's a winner.

Drive That Bike Right Through The Door!

Can't get enough racing games... need more speed... must have speed! If that's your problem, take a valium and chill, or, you could wait for Time Warner Interactive's Kawasaki Super Bike Challenge to come to your Genesis or Game Gear. High speed, sharp corners, screeching tires and fierce competition are the siren's song of this motorcycle racing game.

There's a stadium full of racing games already out there, but only a handful of biker racing games. The bikes aren't Harleys, but I still donned my beat-up motorcycle jacket as I weaved in and out of the competition. Kawasaki also boasts of a two player mode, where you and a friend can put 200 pounds of cold steel between your legs and zip down the road to see who can handle the heat.

Got an itchin' for some screeching action on two wheels? If so, put the Huffy back in the garage and try a Kawasaki on for size. Once the finished product is in, we're gonna give you a full road test on this sizzling new racing game.
