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.

    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (3 Hours ago)

    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (4 Hours ago)
