NES – #28 – Excitebike

History:
It actually wasn’t until I played Excitebike 64 that I went back for the original. I loved Excitebike 64 actually, and after unlocking the NES game I ended up loving the original just the same.

Expectations:
Well, it’s not the most complicated game. I expect I’ll have a few minutes of fun before getting bored and moving on to Bomberman?


Night 1:

Liked:
It’s just good old fashioned arcade fun! It’s exactly the kind of game you pick up for a few minutes to have  some fun with then put away until the itch resurfaces. The game is simple to learn and rewarding to master.

Disliked:
No battery, so the course editor is useless. Maybe Nintendo will port the Famicom Disk System over to the US soon…
