  Great fun

I like this game i have not played any of the moto gp's, but this game can be picked up cheap and is very addictive, the graphics are good and the gameplay is not arcady you have to think about speed and positioning and avoiding crashed riders that is another good point the other riders do crash on their own (always fun to watch) The campaign mode is also good and they have made challenges that are quick and well done.

  Can't stop putting it down

I cannot put this game down this is one of the best bike games i have ever played. And the best thing is you get to see troy bayliss. Its his last time so im glad I have got this. I got it about a week ago and from then on I have played it every day for at least 2 hours. Can't wait to play ya on xbox live. But if I was you id get some practise cos i am good.

I am not going to compare this to moto gp 08 or anything else. I am sure that there great.
I am more into cars than bikes, but just wanted to give it a try. I really enjoyed this more than i thought and found it addictive. The career is great and i found the sound effects, graphics, etc, excellent, including the rain on screen. What i did like, was the fact that when your racing, you have to be careful when overtaking as you'll go flying. With cars, you can clip and still be ok, but bike games make you more cautious.
I won't go out and buy a bike, but if anyone who likes racing games, whether, cars, etc, then this is worth buying for a challenge.

This is by far THE best bike game out for the next gen consoles i ride a motorcycle myself (GSXR 1000 K7) so sure enough the first bike i tried out was the gixxer i would recommend putting the AI and realism setting to the hardest setting and going out on the tracks in time trial selection which is great to fine tune the bike and get a feel for how the Bike works and feels you have so many settings to change in the pit lane and they actually do something when you change them. I dont know why people are complaing about the handling as its very good you cant expect to turn into a corner at 180mph with the front brake on and make it THAT WONT HAPPEN you have to be gentle with the triggers to which is also great i love seeing people highside in front of you exiting a corner this game rocks Forget Moto gp Buy this if you own a bike then you will love it

  Like an unfinished game.

A poor game. No atmosphere around the tracks (no crowd). Good bike graphics, but the backgrounds/tracks are poor. Its impossible to watch a replay of a superpole lap, as the bike just does its on thing, regardless of what really happened. I love bikes, i ride one and follow sbk/motogp, but this game is a real let down. So if you want an arcade sort of game, then you might like this, if you want something a bit realistic, then forget it, sorry!

  one of the best

This as to be one of the best mtorbike racing games i have ever been on.
Not only does it look realistic but u can make the game play more real buy changing the bike setting like tightness of the chain the the gear ratio but if you are a novice on this games dont worry it is extremly easy to use control wise but when you think you are ready to make it hard change the settings to make it more of a challenge for you

  Mixed thoughts with this one

| | See all StellaArtois63's reviews (40)

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
