SX#1 - Supercross is a fun, arcade-influenced take on the muddy world of Motorcross motorbike racing where simple, speedy thrills and hilariously over-the-top crashes are more important than boring realism.
The game looks great with varied tracks and painful-looking (but very amusing) bike pile-ups that send the riders and their machines flying in all directions. The bikes handle superbly and the higher skill settings will tax even the most revved-up motorbike fanatics. Make your way on 12 (forward + reverse) stunning indoor arenas around the world and win the championship; compete against up to 18 riders each with his unique set of abilities; perform stunning mid-air tricks and improve your bike by winning special power up points.

When I first played this game, it reminded me of Road Rash 64, but without the fun elements. I did have fun crashing and making quick turns. Though, the menus are designed poorly. The text is hard to read (why couldn't they pick a smoother font?), and the finish of the race isn't clear. It doesn't say "Finish!" or anything like that; it just exits to the replay. The replay is pretty fun to watch at some parts, despite the occasional graphics errors that you may see (ex: invisible tires). To summarize, this game doesn't feel finished.
Also, this was very weird (Spyware Doctor Report):

Why is SX#1 there? Hmm...

Not Bad. Not Great, but again not bad. The graphics are ok, sounds ok, crashes need more work... I mean if I am gonna crash going 50 mph, I want to see some limbs flailing, body parts bleeding...etc.. It kept me amused for about 30 minutes... mostly to see if I could do flips in mid air, run over downed bikers, see how far the bike would flip after a crash, see how far I would skid after a crash, etc etc etc...
