North America Retail Box ArtThe third instalment in the season, Superbike 2001, retains former champion Carl Fogarty as a tribute to his retirement, along with his Ducati 996 bike.Unlike the 2000 edition there was no AMD processor incompatibility, and the graphics are as slickly rendered as before with practically no scenery pop-up. Unlike the 2000 edition, however, the detailed manual outlining the history of the relatively new championship is absent in this instalment. So once the three extra tracks and season data with accompanying helmets, riders and teams are added, that's really all that's new apart from the change of commentator, that's if you leave this feature on after the first time you try it and it distracts you into crashing.We're in the FIFA situation here; only die-hard fans need apply if you own the 2000 edition, though if you only had 1999's Superbike World, skip an edition and get the latest. --Kenneth Henry
