Tourist Trophy features two main modes, namely, arcade mode and Tourist Trophy mode. In the arcade mode, players participate in a quick race either against computer-controlled opponents or a human opponent. The Tourist Trophy mode, on the other hand, enables players to go through a typical career of a professional rider, earning a license and competing in various events to gain access to new motorcycles and challenges. There are over 120 motorcycles for players to choose from, ranging from 125cc two-strokes to 1,000cc-plus bikes. Most of the motorcycles are Japanese-made models from Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki, but there are also several bikes from Ducati, BMW, Motorrad and Triumph. Each bike handles differently, and players need to adjust their riding styles to perform well on different bikes. There are more than 35 different courses to complete in this game.
Anyone who has an interest in motorcycle racing should give this invigorating game a try.
