Motorbike is a racing game developed and published by baKno Games, first released on the iOS and Android and later ported on the PC and PlayStation 3.

Why It Sucks

  1. The game is a blatant rip-off of Trials.
  2. Incredibly unpredictable and broken physics. Sometimes, you'll fly off into the sky for no reason if you run into an object, or fall through the ground.
    • The trailer claims that the game has accurate physics, but the physics you'll find in-game would tell otherwise, making it a good example of false advertising.
  3. Horrible, frustrating track design.
  4. Painful, extreme difficulty due to the two points above.
  5. Hideous graphics.
  6. Bland, generic rock music.
  7. Terrible sound effects. According to GameSpot, the bike sounds more closely resemble a series of wet farts than revving engines.
  8. Awful framerate in the PS3 version.
  9. Two-player co-op is unnecessary and a stupid concept for a side-scrolling bike game.
    • It doesn't help that the split-screen camera is severely broken. Oftentimes, it'll focus on the empty abyss beneath the track for five minutes instead of the gameplay.
  10. Game-breaking bugs and frequent crashes.
  11. No differences between the two available bikes whatsoever.
  12. Adding insult to injury, the iOS and Android versions are free-to-play while the PC and PS3 versions both cost $9.99!

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Ragdoll physics and fails can be really funny to watch.

Reception

Despite positive user reviews on Google Play and App Store (presumably from the developer using sockpuppet accounts), the PS3 version received very low scores from critics and gamers alike, garnering a critic score of a 17/100 and a user score of a 1.3/10 on Metacritic.

Gamespot gave the PS3 version a 1.5/10, calling it "a cruel joke of a game that no PlayStation 3 owner should ever consider."
