I want a good bike racing game but they don't seem to exist. I tried this series for the last couple years and it's the same stuff over and over. I can't control the darn bikes and it's not fun for me at all. Graphics are well... decent at best. This game just feels lifeless and lazy to me and it could be so much more than that. I'm surprised they still even make this series to be honest. It's a shame.

Obviously the makers spent more time on the gameplay than the graphics. Gameplay is fun once you learn the controls. If you have played the previous games go to setting and turn assist off and you will have better times and more fun. I always start a game on the lowest to try it out but the gameplay sucked due to the assist. As for graphics I personally think they are the same if not worse than the last Moto GP.

Maybe not enough options. But the game runs good. none of the super blur, slowdown, 23fps, maybe 20 at times, over detailed screen tear (What some call great graphics) of today. So that's great news, a rare game in which you at least be able to see what your playing all the time, and form any angle! So graphics get maybe the first ten of this horrid gen for graphics. Gameplay is kinda a mix of arcade and real. The racing is more to the real side. Which is a plus to. You wont be making a 80hp car do 300mph lol. Its just good solid side by side racing once you get the right setting for your talents. None of that Im first and gone stuff. Or Im in last and cant do anything about it. Yo can fight it out for 3rd (once you get a good difficulty setting) for like 3 laps. Maybe get a few seconds on 3rd and go fro second after 7 laps of taken off 4 seconds of his lead. Now that's racing. But that's about it in basic. You got the whole series which is nice. No 3 race bimbo balloon series lol. Its a real series with real points and tracks that favor certain riders and stuff. Good fun for real racers who dont want to work to much playing a game.
