Pocketbike Racer is an advergaming title from Burger King for the Xbox and Xbox 360 video game consoles. On November 19, 2006, Burger King started selling it for an additional $3.99 USD ($4.99 in Canada) with any value meal. It is one of three titles released by Burger King.
The game, based on pocketbike racing, features customizable bikes and drivers. Players can choose one of five tracks to race on: a Burger King restaurant parking lot, a construction site, a backyard, the King's garden or the fabled Fantasy Ranch set. The game can be played solo, with up to four players in split-screen set-up, or up to eight online using Xbox Live. The game contains a track from Miami retro-punk band The Dead Hookers' Bridge Club.
Brooke Burke is featured on the cover of PocketBike Racer, as well as being a playable character within the game.
PocketBike Racer, Sneak King, and Big Bumpin' were all created in just seven months and were considered to be of such high quality that they were pulled from Xbox Live Arcade to be sold as a 'box product' directly in Burger King stores (they are currently only available in America and Canada).
X-Play reviewed all three Burger King games together, with PocketBike Racer being the best game of the three earning a three out of five. However, they mentioned that the game had some glitches and was less fun than that of the Mario Kart series. . IGN, on the other hand, claimed it to be the worst of the three claiming its only fun aspect is "playing as a giant hamburger"  .
