This is a gr8 game well i have played the demo and didnt even no this game was out yet but wen i get paid im getting it, it wipes the floor with moto gp it has better graphics more realistic and the breaks are so realstic the riding everthing about this game is 10 out of 10 must buy if your into motorbikes.

 Mixed thoughts with this one

Having played MotoGP07 I feel a bit let down with this one. Some people say the handling is more realistic on this, well having never ridden a bike I cant argue on that one, but yes the handling of the bike is more challanging to ride in this game. If you love changing the settings on a bike you will love the way you can change it to your special ways. Personally the only changes I would like is to add is stabilizers.
Graphically its good and the AI are good unless they fall off in front of you and take you out as well. I feel the detail lets its down, in comparison to Motogp. It just seems to be empty, more buildings and stands seem to be missing no crowd atmosphere and the bike noises dont seem as good, but maybe thats me being a little to crtical. Where I find it lets its self down the most is the achievements. I like to earn them with a challange rather than get get 50 points for winning a race and win 20 races for 100 and in total there are only 19 to get. The other thing I dont like is not being able to create your own player so you have to be Troy Baliss or others.
Overall its not a bad game if you like racing bikes, but personally I prefer the MotoGp series

firstly i was dissapointed to find out this was only a 1 player unless you play on xbox live! who makes a racing game and makes it single player??!!
secondly where is career mode? ok you can do championship mode, but maybe i don't want to race as haga or bayliss, just maybe i want to ride as myself against haga and bayliss.
i must say moto gp 07 is by far much better! multi player and career mode!
apart from that its an alright game. nothing special.

The Grapthics are great and smooth... and here is where the truth starts the cornering is a joke it can not lean into and dip down enough in fact it can only reach a gentle lean into cornering, the back wheel skids all the time, the bike's tyres has no feeling of the surface, it moves like the old Road Rash Game and is like a stiff ps3 game, the settings are far too complicated and a waste of time and effort , there is the most pathetic engine sound - my Lawn Strimmer sounds better then the bikes on here, the challenges are the most annoying I have come across, the controler settings are not the best in fact you can not use the right hand joystick at all for anything, the steering is rubbish as it jitters at high speed and skids like mad around corners instead of being smooth which you only get on this if you do 20mph, the back brake is just about not there at all the front brake is to kean to late, there is only 8 people who can race with you online un-like moto gp which has 16 if only you people who made this game just picked up and played moto gp 2006 and 2007 and made everything that these have to offer in it's simple settings feel of cornering and the drop level around corners an braking,steering and feel of the tyre to surface and the sound and feel of the engine and the set up of the settings and the hand controler setup you would have had a great game instead it's an insult to the superbikes and the poor people who paid good money for a poor game - Long Live Moto Gp 06/07 and hopfully 2008 which we canr't wait to get our hands on - if you buy the SBK 2008 you will either like it or sell it the first day - mine was sold the 1st day after 9 hours of testing - make what you want of my review which is based on two years of racing moto gp 06 and 07 on and off xbox live.
