Rider’s Spirits Review

Review By Peter Ward

The Game Includes Five Different Game Modes:

Rider’s GP: You race in several tracks and earn points based on your finishing place. The racer with more points at the end wins the tournament.

Time Trial: Try to obtain the fastest time

Endurance: Make a team of two racers and try to stay first during 1, 3 or 5 minutes, just remember if you run out of fuel you are out, so make sure to enter the pit stop to exchange racers

Battle Race (2 players): Compete with another player to see who is the first to cross the goal

Chicken Run (2 players): Run down a road and stop as close to the edge without going over


Bike Daisuki! Hashiriya Kon – Rider’s Spirits was released in 1994 in Japan Which was obviously inspired by Mario Kart the question is in 2024 is this retro game being launched on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One & Series S|X and Nintendo Switch worth it?

I didn’t play this back when it was released but am a huge Snes Mario Kart fan. This game has the original and new version of Rider on it and from what I can see there is no difference its just converted into English text. There are options to change screen style with filers for CRT etc. Apart from that its same 1994 game. Another SNES racer that was good fun called Street Racer as it was similar to Mario Kart great power ups characters and visuals; RS does not have any of these the levels uninspired the power ups few and far between. I cant really find a redeeming feature its so dull and cannot recommend this play any of the following over this SEGA Allstar racing, Mario Kart, Street Racer, F-Zero, Diddy Kong Racing, Crash Team Racing to name a few.

Unless you love this for ever reason in 1994 I cannot recommend it at all.
