The heart of motorcycle racing is going into and out of the chicanes and hairpin turns,any one can go full blast doing a straight run.Now the challenge comes in gaming form of being able to immerse the player to get that real sense of feel. I have all previouse versions and this is the one that Finally ive been waiting for. The sense of going into a turn is there with the proper camera angles.Graphics on the rider and bike models are the best ever with no jaggies and realistic look. Yes motogp 07 environments look better as far as more details but come folks adding helicopters flying does not cut riding mechanics. The people at MileStone knows how to make racing game..Excellent game for first time console release..

It's a good game if your into racing motorcycles. It's alot like nascar if your into that kind of stuff or F1 Racing, But a little harder because your on two wheels vers four wheels and you have to lean when turning. Give it a try.

On the original Xbox, MotoGP was such a fun game, everything from the music to the handing of the bikes. Learning how to take corners without flying off of the track was half the fun. This game has been watered down so much, it doesn't even look or feel like the same series. I wasn't at all impressed with the graphics, I feel like last years game was better but maybe its just me. MotoGP 2006 was really fun too. The Championship mode is pretty annoying. If you choose to start the race without doing practice laps or qualifying, it starts the race in a pole position mode anyways thus you have to forfeit, go back to the menu, then finally being the actual race. What the heck was the point in that Capcom? You're lucky you're busy with RE4, SF4, and many other amazing games I can't bring myself to be mad at you. This game was so unfulfilling in fact that I had to take my CBR1000 out for a cruise at 1am just to remind myself how awesome motorcycles really are.
