Well, It had to be done sooner or later! Namco has combined the polygon/texture-mapping technology of such games as Tekken and Ridge Racer with a multiplayer, motorcycle racing game (a la Suzuka 8 Hours) to come up with Cyber Cycles. Head-to-head racing hardly gets more realistic. You can go it alone if you like, but it's much more fun to get some friends in on the action.
Each racer is distinguished by one of four distinct colors, so there is no question as to whom you are giving a friendly nudge at 180 mph. There is no word yet as to whether there will be a choice of bikes (that would be nice), but there is certain to be several tracks to race through. You'll need to keep ahead of the pack to keep racing; a good time will give you extended play.
If you're a racing fan, this is one not to be missed. Bring your friends to the arcade and enjoy the latest in simulated speed!
Namco really pulled out all the stops as far as graphics are concerned! The texture-mapped roadside scenes in Cyber Cycles are similar to the kind used in the hit Ridge Racer. The virtual reality-like cycles respond to the movements of the player. As you lean to the right or the left on your cycle, your on-screen counterpart will weave through obstacles and burn through turns. Blow your feeble competition away!
