THE GOOD: Amazing replays, really fun to play,Great graphics, lots of players and bikes to choose from.
THE BAD: Slow Turns!
SUMMARY: This game could be classified as perfect but not because the turns are hard and slow. The graphics push up the piont. Buy it compared to other bike games, but if you see GT 3 and Moto GP take GT3!!!
THE GOOD: Excellent in-game graphics, as well as some of the best replays on the PS2 yet. Several different motorbikes available, all of which are customisable. Many different modes of play.
THE BAD: Not much really, perhaps limited number of tracks.
SUMMARY: MotoGP - a PS2 launch title - was also the first ever motorcycle game on the PS2 - and a very good one at that. The game features 5 different modes of play: Arcade, Challenge, Vs, Time Trial, and Season. Most of the game revolves around the Challenge mode, setting 53 individual challenges, (actually 159 challenges, as each challenge needs to be completed on the different levels - bronze, silver and gold) ranging from easy to near impossible. As you progress through the game certain challenges are cleared, for example, one of the easy challenges require you to overtake 20+ bikes in the first lap. Another requires you to play 5 seasons on full laps (this is around 40 laps per race!). In challenge mode you can unlock many riders, phot...
THE BAD: Five tracks!!! Bikes from about '98 season.
SUMMARY: I got this 'cos I love bikes me, and it looked nice, I heard stuff about how it was a bit dodgy, but it came good in the end. The main pube in the beer was that you're limited to 5 tracks. Not enough. We need more! But on the good side, handling is fairly realistic, on sim mode, off sim mode it's just like ridge racer. Except turn in is a bit too quick. Loads of bikes that you can tell the difference between, some say you cant, but they've never been on a bike clearly. The NSR500 is a rocketship and re-defines speed, but cornering can be tricky. The 'priller RSW500 handles beautifully and you can hang it out round every corner but its a bit asthmatic on the straight. A good start, lets see some more tracks and more recent bikes in MotoGP2.
THE BAD: Un-realistic crashes, un-realistic motorcycle setup
SUMMARY: As a former motorcycle racer I really appreciate the graphics and the difficulty of riding when the game is in the hard sim mode. The motorcycle setup is poor, though with vague adjustments for "Handling" and "Acceleration." Give us the ability to adjust suspension, gear ratios, jetting, tires and more.
The tracks are excellent--just like in real life, but I wish there were more. In the US version we only get five. Suzuka, Motegi, Paul Ricard, Donnington and Jerez.
The replays are incredible. If it wasn't for the motorcycle turn-in being too jerky, it could be like you are watching a real GP on TV.
