    I prefer Light Bikes because of the view. What about you?

    Light bikes just got an update. Now I really like it for then Light Riders.

    But we have to wait until Light Rider finishes their upcoming updates.

    But for now, Light Bikes got them beat.

    Maybe this should be a poll? Just a suggestion, but I like Light Bikes more. Much better. For some reason I always feel more frustrated with Light Riders and it seems a lot less *Tada!*

    gameplay (what really matters) is much better in LightBike - as of now.

    i would advise against a poll until Light Riders introduces the new cam angles...

    that makes no sense...both will continue to add upates so why does one have to wait for the other...world doesnt revolve around LightRiders

    and its like me saying 'Which car is fastest: Honda Civic Coupe or the Acura RSX typeS...lets not compare them until i put mods on my civic!'

    sorry, disagree. dsML has stated that the 1st update will happen sooner as opposed to later.

    no one is saying that the world revolves around Light Riders, just be a bit patient. i'm on record several times that i think that LightBike is the better game - but i'm willing to chill for a week or so and see what dsML has up their sleeves.

    and i believe that the "polish" that Peter is referring to means "presentation".

    if you're going to make a poll, at least get the names right

    it's LightBike and Light Riders

    wtf did u just say...u start off talking about why we should wait a bit before we start a poll...so in my response im asking you WHY? Why do i have to be patient? i dun care if the updates is coming out soon, i just dont find it reasonable to wait until the games are at par before a poll can be started.

    New products come out everyday and they need to get competitive quick. When something new comes out its already compared to many competitors. Theres no such thing 'ok they're new, let take it easy on them'
    Wake up kid!

    ur advice isnt valid why would he take it...

    Light Bikes will feature a internet Wi-Fi multiplayer mode too, and in light Bikes we can play with 2 player on same ipod, and not with light riders

    i don't know wtf you're talking about. i articulated my point pretty clearly. if you don't have patience then i feel bad for you.

    it's obvious who the kid is. what the hell's your problem anyway?

    I side with eric here. Saying a game _will be better_ is rather one-sided. Who's to say the other won't also get the same or better updates? And if the update were coming that soon they should have just submitted that version instead.

    I've played both. I'm not in love either, but LightBike is the better game right now.

    I noticed that too with LightBike. There's a weird arcing 3D view which can be disorienting at first. I do like that they added an option for different size arenas, but the scoring menu needs an overhaul...actually, maybe just having one would be good. At least, you have a choice on the whether to have a timer.

    i just spent some time playing both games. if u don't like the new cam in LightBike, u can turn off the Boost Cam and you'll have turning as you're used to. this was a real solid update.

    as for Light Riders, i gave it another chance and it's just not that fun to play. as i said, i hope they improve it.

    and a side note, i've come to really enjoy this forum and it's a shame that this thread got bogged down by immaturity. why wouldn't any of us want both of these games to be strong? i rather have 2 awesome games than have a blind allegiance to one.
