You want to jump on a bike and just ride to maximum speed? You can! You want to check every single setting to improve your last lap? You can! And you don't need to worry about wearing a suit...

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
New 3D realistic environments
Motorbike fairings and rider suits damage
Terrain deformation
Overprints from the TV broadcast
Tracks overhauled from real CAD data

thanks - just ordered one

nice find

That's gotta be worth a punt. I was tempted when I saw it for around £12.50 a few days ago.

Heat and rep, but I have last years one unopened at home so cant buy this too.

I love the demo of this!
I'd definately order this right now if I hadn't stupidly spent all my money on cufflinks.

Nice post but ah balls not the ps3 version which is my preference!

:thumbsup:

This sounds ok but I played an earlier edition and really couldn't get on with it, is this a little more forgiving?

Anybody actually ride a motorcycle here and played this game?

What does it compare like?

I've not got any gaming stuff but might be tempted if it was realistic.

I've only seen my nephew on his PSP and PS2 and various Need for Speeds and they are absolutely diabolical..crash in to this n that and continue racing? Baloney.

With all the assist off this is a very unforgiving game. I have SBK 08 and this is very much cut from the same mold. It's as realistic/difficult as you want it to be with the selection of assists that you have (well as realistic as driving a bike can be using a pad). This is a very good price for what is fundamentally and by all accounts, the most realistic bike game on a console from the limited selection.

For a tenner, if you think it might be your thing, then it probably will be. I'd be surprised if you found it too easy as the difficulty without assists is what causes this game to get lower than deserved review scores.

Husband is revving his engine but alas got this today...

My game had an estimated dispatch date of the 16th, it hasn't been dispatched but I haven't had any email regarding this either. I'm still hopeful I'll get it, but something seems a little odd.

I suspect with the 3 day dispatch delay they were quoting, they didn't physically have the game in stock and were awaiting supplies which seemingly in your case haven't materialised, or at least not in sufficient quantities to cover the number of orders received.

Need for Speed (apart from the new Shift game) is a simple arcade racer whereas the SBK series is a simulation game, the total opposite. I've never played a motorbke game that really gave you the feel of a motorbike, SBK isn't bad although it feels a bit odd the way the bike leans and rotates as you take the corners. It feels pretty good powering out of the corners as you get the back end trying to high side you while the front wheel is trying to get off the ground. For a tenner it's worth a shot I think.
