Based on the official licence owned by Infront Motor Sports, SBK 09: Superbike World Championship offers the ultimate experience of the championship. Tracks, teams, riders, it's all there unaltered to make the player feel the adrenaline rush of real motorbike competition.
Every feature of the game has been dramatically improved from the previous year. New 3D environments, new teams, complete track overhaul, new gameplay structure, new game modes, revamped user interface. The pits have been redesigned to be as close to reality as a picture could be. The performance of the motorbikes is based on exact data from their real counterparts and the player can fine-tune every single setting a real race engineer can. Not to mention the podium, which is there, waiting for the winner.
For the first time ever in a motorbike racing game, SBK 09 will feature visible damage on fairings and rider leathers!
SBK 09 has a huge number of customisable realism settings making it perfect for beginners as much as for simulation enthusiasts. It's not just a game. It's a complete riding experience.
Five single-player modes: Quick race, Training, Race Weekend, Championship and Challenges
Three online multiplayer modes: Quick Race, Championship and Team Championship
