STORY / GAMEPLAY
This is a pure racing simulator game and as such, it does not have an actual story. All your need is to race and win! The action is shown from first person perspective, via the rider's helmet, so each track and any surrounding stuff (trees, grandstands, tunnels and the like) are in 3D vector! The lower 1/4 of the display includes the bike's handle bars and the basic instruments like the speedometer and the rev counter. By pressing the Spacebar it gives you a split-second rear view. Before racing in tournaments, you first need to practice your riding skills as it is quite tricky to handle the bike.
A race is preceded by three time qualifying laps. During a season, it's imperative to get the pole position and it is very important to always "read" the track rather than just racing at high speeds, crashing all the time in every hard bend. More on that, the computer riders are challenging and a collision or loss of control leads to a near-fatal wobble!
You have the selection to race through 16 world famous grand prix circuits and enjoy the power of a Suzuki's phenomenal acceleration! This game gives that "real" racing feel, complete with power slides and wheelies, that's why it was probably one of the best racing bike simulators ever released for the Amiga, Atari ST and DOS computers of the early 90s. GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game was technically ahead of its time. The 3D vector graphics are smooth, fast and can you can watch the environments from different camera angles (much like a combat flight simulator game). Team Suzuki also includes a built-in action replay system. The computer controlled riders look a bit jerky though, as they are designed using (colored) vectors with minimal detail, but still, they move very fast. Each track has a few background details like crowd stands, buildings or tunnels. Comparably, the Amiga version runs a bit slower than the Atari ST but never in a way that can render the game unplayable.
The game's sound is great, including an introductory sampled tune, while there is a sampled engine throttle sound when you race.
