SBK 09 trailer

SBK 09 trailer

We just got this first trailer of SBK 09, and as usual only the fans of the genre will care enough to even watch it. Not bad looking at all!

Although I dont know much about bike racing, the last time I wanted to buy one of these just for the challenge I rented it first and the frame rate got choppy on most corners making it unplayable. If this one can keep it together I'll but it.

I would really love to see a new Tourist Trophy as that was the best bike related game I have played thus far...this might be good too as long as it is accessible enough...

Doesn't look bad, but why can't they blend flat ground with hilly bits? (looks at pic 6 and weeps...)

It just looks like it's been plonked there.

And when are they going to start accurately modelling road surfaces? I think that's the next thing for driving games. At the moment, everything is nice and flat (unless you are playing a rally game). We're still a long, long way from a really good simulation of anything...

None of these motorcycling games are a patch on TT Superbikes, even tho that is for the PS2. The graphics might be dated but the feel of the bikes is second to none and it really is a really underated game and missed gem by most people.

Each year SBK and Moto GP churn out the same game with slightly better graphics etc but they bore me.

I'm really excited about the PS3 version of TT Superbikes that is coming sometime in the future.

Yeah that looks retarded.

About the road surfaces, I agree too.

What is up with horrible music in racing game trailers lately, urgh.

Still, the previous SBK 08 wasn't that bad. Imho it was underrated by many people. Bike handling in corners was more realistic than for instance MotoGP's. More inertia/momentum that is. Haven't played TT Superbikes though, so I cannot compare.

SBK 08 wasn't so bad. Good bike handling in corners due to attention to inertia/momentum.

played the demo yesterday and was pleasantly surpised about the handling even on arcade mode. there's quite some weight to the bikes.

    KORNdog and down - that was a review for alien resurrection in 2000. i found it kind of funny that gamespot complained about that, given that's how all games work now on consoles. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The game's control setup is its most terrifying element. The left analog stick moves you forward, back, and strafes right and left, while the right analog stick turns you and can be used to look up (5 Hours ago)

    asdfg @alimokrane: like you generalized that KORNdog must read reviews? (1 Day ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @asdfg: I wasnt talking about ALL gamers, I was talking to KORNdog. Way to go generalizing. No wonder the world is doing so well with everyone generalizing! (1 Day ago)
