Suzuki Alstare Racing is a very fast and fluid racer with great graphics and high speed thrills for those who love arcade style racing. The three tracks available at the beginning are fairly easy to complete in 1st place and ease you into the game style nicely. Doing well at these will unlock others (14 in total).
The two player mode works well and is great for a laugh. the speed remains fast and fluid in this mode although some of the detail is lost and pop up is evident. However, this doesn't distract from an enjoyable experience.
I wouldn't give this racer the highest rating as it hasn't got a lot of depth (it is isnt no MSR), but what it does lose in depth it more than makes up for in arcade thrills. Its the type of racer you can pick up and have a quick blast on, but not one which will last you months on end.
Overall, a polished game which doesn't pretend to be more than it is, i.e an arcade motorbike racer. If you like your games fast and furious and without the hassle of having to learn difficult manouveres and bike tweaking skills, then this is for you. But if you like your racing games with a more simulation type theme then you should go for F355 Challenge or Metropolis Street Racer.
