A legend among motorcycle racers and the most memorable game of its kind to ever hit the PC market. Offering a superb blend of lightning-fast superbike racing and hairpin curve-infested motocross events, it became an instant classic. It's got a bunch of nifty features, like two driving models (arcade and simulation), vivid graphics that look pretty nice even today and a broad selection of motorcycles to choose from. But all these look pale when compared to this game's sheer fun factor, which will make you want to keep on playing and will burn itself into your memories forever.

Wow, how I love this game. Counting all the time I've played, I spent weeks of my life in it. I loved both the gameplay and the fact that even the "cheat codes" weren't actually to cheat, but to add depth to the game.
I remember them like it was yesterday: "CTEKCOP" would give you small bikes, which was not just a visual change, as they handled differently, and "CESREVER" wouldread more reverse the tracks, effectively doubling the number of them.
It's a shame the sequel didn't live up to the original. I've never played the third game, though, so I don't know what it's like.
Does anyone know if this game includes the two extra tracks of the beach and amusement park? I know they're free, but who knows if you can still find them.
Now that GOG is bringing more racing games, I hope they get their hands on "Stunts". I'd give both kidneys to play that game again.

Seeing this game released gave me that good old fuzzy feeling you get when you see again a game you played so much as a child.
It's a fun, simply put. It's not particularly advanced or bloated, nor does it need to. It's pure, entertaining racing fun through some great courses you'll play over and over - and love it.

I rember this game from when it came out always thought it was great. So i purchased it and downloaded it straight away. Although it does run in windows 7 64bit, I can only get it to run in software mode, which while ok, it is a bit disapointing that it cannot recocgnise modern 3d hardware. Still good game
