An excellent modern update of a beloved NES classic.
The original Excitebike is one of the most beloved NES games of all time and also happens to also be one of my most cherished retro titles. When I heard that Nintendo and Monster Games were collaborating to update the title, I was very excited. Once it became available yesterday, I didn’t hesitate for a second to download it. Rather than taking the easy route of just adding 3D graphics, slapping on some minor features and calling it a day, World Rally is a full-fledged modern update that could easily be called a sequel thanks to its many new features. Thankfully, the game is still as fun as the classic and the various additions prove to be fantastic.
