Overly complicated for the casual gamer

The gameplay was just ok to me. Graphics are pretty bland, but it is just a racetrack. Controls were also easy to grasp and get a feel for.

However, once you go around the track a few times, that's pretty much it. Nothing else to the game.

I found the game extremely unforgiving where if you make even a slight mistake, you're pretty much out of the race. Realistic and very frustrating.

There is a bike customization area where you seem to be able to tweak a lot of bike settings, mostly stuff I didn't fully comprehend or understood how the settings would mix with each other. I'm certain that a bike enthusiast would love the tweaks and technical details, but I do not really play games for that level of realism, I was escapism.

If you are a speedbike fan, I'm sure you will love the game, but anyone else who just wants to play some racing would probably look elsewhere.

I played for an hour, ran a few tracks, then packed it up to send back.

It was like playing the first MotoGP only worse

i was so disappointed in the game. A lot of potential but failed in every way a racing game could. I can only hope they improved with the next version.

The one thing that amazed me more than anything was that not a single person was playing the game online.

Did I mention I was disappointed.

i was expecting a clean and smooth super bike game. it wasn't! you have to turn to hard and it is almost like it doesn't follow the direction you want it to go. very poor controller to game movement. was one of the worst motorcycle games i have played. i rented this game cause i ride a "KTM RC8" track bike, on the track and the game isn't even simulated to real speculations in my opinion.
