PGR is back with a new friend - Motorcycles!

With the release of PGR3, the game became an immediate hit and a must-have for any racer out there. Now, PGR4 strives to live up to it's predecessors status by implementing some new features. The first new addition is the obvious - racing with motorcycles. While the Project Gotham series was mainly about 4-wheeled speed demons, Bizzare spiced the game play up. The motorcycles is easily one of the best additions in the game as the motorcycles are a blast to drive. Motorcycle riders also can 'taunt' other racers that car drivers can't. Too fast for all the 'car' racers? Give them a quick snap of your hand in a 'L' shape as you speed by. The motorcycles stand between a Simulation and a Arcade style of handling. While its no MotoGP, it can be a bit tricky steering your cycle through tight corners.
The next addition is the implementation of a weather system. This can undoubtedly make your races harder as certain weather systems can affect your car or cycle's handling. Rainy weather will make you cautious as you approach a turn and snow will just make you sit on the edge of your seat while you carefully navigate your way around a snowy course. The game does a good job not making it too much of a simulation. While in real-life, you'd be slipping and sliding everywhere and crashing if the track was full of snow, but in PGR4, it is manageable - as long as you are cautious.
Singleplayer is revamped with a Race Calendar that displays each event and race like a real calendar, which is better than PGR3's race-here-with-this-vehic- le. Multiplayer is back too, and almost like PGR3's. Daily Tournaments will keep PGR4 lively for a long time as players compete to be the best in the world. Players can also take screenshots and save replays as in PGR3.
PGR4 is basically a revamped version of PGR3. Though, if you're a motorcycle lover like me, you'll definitely love being able to race in motorcycles against cars. Just make sure you're not faint-at-heart when you dare to race in dash-cam.

Project Gotham Racing 4 will blow you away when you try it out. It is the most amazing racing game of 2008. Now you can drive motorcycles and that is a new exciting addition. The acheivements are actually very fun to get and there are some that really make the game fun and challenging. The music on this game is pretty good too. The online play on this game is pretty good, but only when you get into a party because i went to play and i was waiting to play for about 10 minutes just sitting there. However this game is so good i just didnt care you will play this game for hours and never get tired of this great addition to one of the best collections of racnig games ever. This game is a must buy!!!
