There are a decent amount of game play modes available in Speed Kings most of the good ones will require unlocking. License mode is a great tutorial which will familiarize you with the controls and get you performing tricks in no time. Theres a single race option where you can practice any course that you have unlocked. Most of the stages and bikes are unlocked in meets play where there are six meets, each one consisting of three races. There are optional goals to do in races called respect tasks which range from doing a wheelie for so many consecutive feet to not crashing at all in a race. Points are earned from completing the tasks which go towards respect bikes. Bikes can also be unlocked by getting record times on tracks in time attack mode. There is also a trick attack option where you get sets of five tricks to do in progressively decreasing time limits. Grand Prix is probably the best mode of the bunch but can only be accessed after you unlock all the bikes, its where up to four players can play in any race, but with no traffic and even more AI opponents against you.
The sound effects are your usual fare, and if you played the pair of MotoGP titles, then be prepared to experience them all again here. There are a couple decent additions such as the slick effect used when activating power bands and the crashes sound marvelous as well.
