Roaring down the road at 190mph takes bravery, but doing it on two wheels powered by a 170-horsepower engine takes a special kind of courage. You have to lean your motorcycle so hard into turns that you're barely hovering off the pavement. You pray that you don't accelerate too hard out of a turn, causing your bike to slip, suddenly regain grip, and then smack you headfirst into the pavement. For world-class superbike riders, these thrills are commonplace. And the speed, danger, and daring of world-class motorcycle racing have been captured superbly in Superbike 2001, the latest entry in EA Sports' series of motorcycle sims.
Created by Italian developer Milestone Studios, Superbike 2001 is a fully featured, licensed simulation. All 13 circuits from the 2000 SBK Superbike World Championship season are represented in the game, as are all the factory riders and bikes from seven manufacturers: Ducati, Aprilia, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha, and now Bimota. The 2001 edition also adds the Oschersleben, Imola, and Valencia circuits. Milestone has taken pains to faithfully re-create the superbike scene, from the unique scenery along each track, to the umbrella girls shading the riders on the starting grid, to the smallest logos of actual sponsors on the riders' leathers. However, this is only the beginning of the game's attention to realism and authenticity.
The motorcycles featured in the game are incredibly fast and powerful, and the sophisticated physics model faithfully re-creates the way riders need to subtly and accurately balance forces to keep from flying off their bikes. Lean a little too hard, and your bike will skid out from under you, flipping across the track. Forget to sit up as you're slowing for a turn, and you'll likely overshoot and barrel headlong into a gravel trap. Subtlety and accuracy are a must for a successful race. However, there are a few physics flaws in the game, such as when the bikes sometimes seem to slightly overlap before a collision is registered. Fortunately, this is a small fault that doesn't adversely affect gameplay once you get used to it. The game's damage modeling is also very forgiving, but then again it's more fun to race than sit out with a crashed bike.
On the "real" difficulty level, expect to pop wheelies when you don't want to, oversteer with pavement-pounding results, and generally make a fool of yourself the first few times out. At its most advanced levels, Superbike 2001 is the Grand Prix Legends of motorcycle racing games: It's unforgiving in its realism and richly rewarding in the long term. But unlike in Grand Prix Legends, the difficulty level in Superbike 2001 is much more fully scalable, so even complete rookies can enjoy the game by using simplified settings. For instance, you can turn on automatic transmission, extra brake power, and acceleration assistance, along with visual indicators that warn you of upcoming turns and the need to brake. On top of that, you can choose to display the optimal racing line as a broken yellow stripe on the track. There's also an optional ideal-speed indicator, which has a moving bar showing whether you're riding too slowly, too fast, or just right for the area of the track you're on. In a welcome addition to the series, there's now a full training mode that lets you practice solo for as long as you like on each track, while tweaking your bike setup. You can pause to listen to an audio primer on how to take each turn as the camera pans through it.
Most aspects of Superbike 2001 are highly configurable. The visually appealing menu system is highly navigable, and it lets you easily make quick changes in graphics detail levels, sound, and controller setup. Rider, bike, and track selections are also simple, and you can view detailed stats on all of these. Had EA Sports waited a little longer to release the game, the designers probably would have been able to include stats for the entire season instead of just part of it. Fortunately, this exclusion doesn't hurt gameplay, though it might annoy hard-core racing fans. For such fans, the game offers detailed configuration options for bike steering geometry, suspension, gear settings, and tire types. These all have a noticeable effect on handling, so it can be a lot of fun to tweak your bike for each course and for different weather conditions. You can even view telemetry readouts during replays to help with your setups, although there's no explanation in the skimpy manual of how to use the data.
When you're ready to race, you can choose from three basic race options and get under way. Quick start gets you right into the action without any fuss. Single race can be configured as a full race weekend and includes practice laps, qualifying laps, superpole, and two races. Championship mode lets you play out a full season that covers 13 race weekends over all the tracks. For each race, you can configure the number of laps, number of computer-controlled riders, weather conditions (including impressive rain effects), and computer riders' skill level.

EA Sports and its usual slick interface do the job. The manual is satisfactory but nothing to write home about.

Graphics: 9.5
This game is just soooooo pretty to watch. Great bike and rider models fly down fantastic tracks with superb animations. What else can I say?
Sound : 8.5
Nice bike engine sounds and crashes but average everything else. Here's one thing they can work on for next year.
Gameplay : 9
This game has one of the best physics models I've ever encountered and tons of options to suit your style of play. This should appeal to all different types of racing fans.

Lasting Appeal : 9
You'll have to play this one a whole lot to get good which translates into a lot of playing time. Besides that, it's just fun.
Overall : 9
Amazing (out of 10, not an average)
