Game

Ratings:

3 stars from Computer Gaming World

A full-motion video adrenaline rush.

Real bikes. Real roads. Real competition.

At 150 mph, the blacktop blurs in front of you. With the whine of your racing bike drilling through your helmet, you crest a hill. 50 feet ahead, an oil slick. Go straight, you go down. Swerve left, you meet the front grill of a diesel truck. Bail right, and you eat guardrail. One wrong move and you'll see, this is as real as it gets.

In this game, you're right in the meat of high-speed, high-danger motorcycle road racing. The intense action of full-motion video pushes you to the limits of sanity as you scream down the blacktop against riders with the same need for speed.

Through 5 live-action roadways, you'll blast down the straightaways at 160 mph plus, drag your knees around hairpins, negotiate chicanes in traffic. Every road stripe, every background, every bike-eating guardrail, digitized to make you feel what it's like to win or eat asphalt in real motorcycle racing.

Technologically speaking, this CD-ROM brings you to the cutting edge. Biologically speaking, it gives you the adrenaline rush of riding a real race-tuned motorcycle. And just like the real thing, the roads are real hard when you hit them.

Over 400 MB of real video footage and 6 race-ready bikes including kidney-crunching 1000 cc's to turbo'd 900s give you the sensation of real high-speed racing.

Reviews:

Computer Gaming World, January 1995

"There are a bunch of intriguing elements to this CD-based, semi-simulation of motorcycle racing, and surely the highlight of the package must be the courses themselves. A fast-moving film crew collected video footage from five distinctly different areas of American roadway - from desert to forest - and that footage was used to build the game."

"In actual gameplay, Cyclemania is a curious mix of racing simulation and arcade-type free-for-all, and stands somewhere in between, not quite sure of where to go. Certainly, dodging assorted hazards such as static cows, galloping horses, and Sunday drivers while traveling in excess of 150 mph is an amusing and hairraising pastime."

"Cyclemania offers a smart depiction of the racing bike experience in a semi-realistic and enjoyable arena. For a quick thrill, it excels, and certainly the inclusion of a real video is one giant leap forward."
