This used to be a good series. This version really dissapoints. Poor control, so so graphics and weak game physics. Not sure who dropped the ball on this one. The earlier Moto GP games are far superior to this.
Let me start off by telling you I am a LONG time rider of more than 20 years. Not just putts to work, but TOTALLY illegal canyon riding. I currently have over 30,000 miles on my '06 Kawi ZX-14, which I bought in August of '06. So, as someone who puts on an average of 250 miles each time I straddle my rocket, and has survived the freeways of Southern California for all these years, you can bet your bum I KNOW WHAT REAL RIDING IS. That is why I can honestly tell you, this game simulates NONE of the aspects of riding and racing motorcycles well. To be honest, it is the WORST motorcycle game I have played yet, and I have played quite a few.
Some people would say motorcycle games hit their peak with Superbike 2001, and I would have to agree with that. If you are too young to remember, or even played that game, then you might agree with me when I say MotoGP '06 would be the current gen's best representation. But I still think Superbike 2001 was the best game so far. What I am referring to as 'tragedy' in my title is the fact that the same company that developed that motorcycle masterpiece in 2001 is the same one responsible for this heap of trash. Also, they are the ones responsible for the new release of Superbike World Championship, which released yesterday, and all I can say is that I HOPE that game is MUCH better than this one. What happened here milestone? You know, I am looking for a career change, so if you need a full time technical advisor, I would LOVE the change of scenery??? ;) Guys, as much as I LOVED SBK 2001, this game is utter TRASH. Sorry!
Stay away from this one. It just isn't right. I completely expected more from this title, considering it was being developed by Milestone in Italy. It is almost like none of the guys who worked on this game have EVER ridden a motorcycle. If you really like motorcycle games, stick with MotoGP 06. '07 was just too dumbed down for anyone who has ever ridden a motorcycle. Better luck next year guys!
