The collaboration between Milestone and EA continues for the second year giving birth to Superbike 2000, one of the most accurate and realistic race games at the moment. SBK2000's gameplay options are very similar to those that can be found in all race simulations. Career mode allows selecting a rider and a bike to start training. There are bike events every weekend to take part in, two free practice sessions, two qualifying sessions, a Superpole and two races. The free practice sessions allow the gamer to understand the behaviour of the bike on the track and the consequences of each movement. Performance during qualifying sessions and Superpole determine the starting grid in the final race. The game has four difficulty options that can be changed any moment during the game. For those who don't know the dynamics of riding a bike there are driving aids. Superbike 2000 bikes are stock bikes from Ducati, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Aprilia. Each bike has its own personalised team livery and engine sound. Each bike has its own characteristics that make it unique on the track.
