    Not the best game to be remade, but as a free game, it was nice (not free anymore).

    Gameplay: 3D classics: Excitebike is a 3D remake of the classic game from the NES era. The gameplay remains the same; players control a character who races in different tracks. The "charm" or "appeal" of the game is the ... Read Full Review

    It's very little, but worth those 0 dollars and 207 blocks.

    3D Classics: Excitebike is one of the NES downloads for the 3DS, but unlike the others, this one is for free. After downloading this game you'll probably understand why, there is very little content to it. But what there... Read Full Review

    Hello, It's Free

    I got a chuckle seeing 6s from other users for this game. It's free, come on! Nevertheless, I would pay for Excitebike 3DS. I probably wouldn't pay what I'm guessing Nintendo will be asking for it a month from now, but i... Read Full Review

    Does this version of the NES game stand the test of time with just a few improvements?

    Excitebike 3D is the first 3D cIassic game for the 3DS, though who knows if it'll be few or many of those. Reggie mentioned it on Nintendo's E3 2011 press conference and gave players the "first taste for free if you eat ... Read Full Review

    A great 3D version of a NES classic!

    Excitebike was one of the launch titles for the NES so it's fitting that this 3D version is a launch title for the eshop. Plus it's free for the first month which is a big bonus. As far as the 3D goes, it's not that stun... Read Full Review

    Excitement Abound

    The game is ridiculously addictive. Even after coming in 22nd place you'll still want to try again. It's easy to get frustrated by the game's seemingly intent desire on making you suffer terribly, but lying underneath re... Read Full Review

    Excitebike is fun to play if you need a distraction.

    It's time for the Excitebike review! For the NES. This is the first out of 5 NES games I will review from Animal Crossing for the Gamecube. Excitebike is basically a motorcross game where you race on a bike and try to... Read Full Review
