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.
It seemed pretty simple as a motorcycle game, if you have played any of the WSBK games you would see a difference. The game play feels stiff and not linear. If you like motorcycle games you could try this one, but don't expect to be blown away. The overall career mode is a bit frustrating because all of the bikes are terrible compared to the cpu's bikes. Similar to that, whenever they crash into you, you always seem to fall and you can never make them fall. Overall a fun game, it's not like we have a large choice of motorcycle games in the first place.
