Correcting Misinformation This is NOT the 1984 version.
28 April 2019 | by vernevoshellSee all my reviews

There seems to be some misinformation on this site. This is NOT the 1984 Vs.Excitebike released in arcades. THIS is the 1985 NES version of the game, which only had 5 tracks, played a little faster and just was NOT the same. It was cool in 1985 to be able to play without dropping quarters in a machine. But this is NOT THE ORIGINAL 1984 Vs. Excitebike.

The Original had 7 tracks and featured the "Excite Bike", which you could get for knocking down other riders during a race. The Excite Bike would turn your overheat bar white and allow you to use the turbo button without overheating. It was a far superior game to the NES clone and steps should be taken to correct this site.

it even says under the "Excitebike (1984) header that this is the NES game released in 1985. PLEASE CORRECT THIS SITE IMDB!!!
