Moto GP 06 is the Best Moto GP game ever released for any game format. Yes, it's hard to master, but assist are available.
The graphics are still up to par with todays 360 games; but the game play is far superior to the GP 07, 08, 09/10 and yes, I own every Moto GP game available. since Moto GP (a shame Moto GP 3 has never been updated for 360)
The game offers over 32 independent tracks... the official GP tracks run in 06, and the game offers 17 street tracks for the extreme class... which is simply fantastic. You can also unlock mirrored versions of the tracks and reversed versions, may not seem like much, but Forza 4 and others do not offer this in their games. i.e reversed Mugello is like an entire new track!
Use the thumb controls... right stick for gas/brake... left stick for steering. The game has challenges, time trials, and career modes that are great.
Finally the game offers the greatest years for Rossi on his Yamaha and Colin Edwards in his Prime! No to mention legendary Kenny Roberts!
I highly recommend this game if you like Racing games, Moto GP and Sims. If only the newer Moto GP games were this good Climax was the best developer in this genre!
BYW: you also get the 05 season with this one!
Folks should not rate because there hard... easier than most shooters! Simple coordination development with two sticks!

If you rode a motorcycle without learning how to, you would probably crash. It took me a least a month to learn proper braking techniques, optimum acceleration points and all a that. I didn't even know what that was before playing this. The point is, the only difference between this game and the real thing is..well..the real thing. It has awesome graphics unbelievable sound effects, 4 levels of difficulty, replay at the end of a stage-it's great and by far, the best simulation racing game out there.
