I have played many motorcycle games. This one is just as worse as the rest of them! The handling is terrible even if your a rookie rider. No motorcycle game i've played yet besides, Suzuki Racing Extreme for Dream Cast and the Road Rash series for Playstation. Has been a good play for a novice player. I guess ill keep trying to find the right one like the one that was for Dream Cast and Playstation years ago. But like the saying goes. They don't make things like they use to.
On my quest to find a motorcycle racing games that portrays the speed and real essence of the sport. This is one of the first ones that I have played in a while and although an older title I was hoping for something that represented those things. What I got was the typically mushy controls that seem to come with super bike type games. I feel like the speed of the sport is poorly represented. Although I imagine racing in real life requires a ton of smoothness I feel like it takes away from the potential feel of speed the game might have provided. Have to be honest I spent less than an hour with the game but that was enough to know that I did not want to spend much more time than that. I can't think of a better way to improve the controls as a hand held controller simply can't deliver the feel of a bike.
Bottom line is that I am hoping for something with the quality of Gran Turismo 5 and I have yet to find it and doubt it exist in the realm of motor cycle racing games. To be honest I think I would rather spend my time with GT5 or a more arcade style bike game.
Oh yeah, the audio of the bikes were terrible and the soundtrack was even worse.
I would say that you can leave this behind and maybe try one of the newer Moto GP games although I have played a few demos of those and was not super impressed either.

The game had major potential but it was so sucked and drained out like a hoover vacuum. How games like Uncharted 1 & 2 can run seamlessly with no download data makes it inexcusable when it happens to other games. The save function was on a wonk overdrive and the game was constant load happy.
I have little patience today as I have been gaming for 35 years and stuff like this irritates me. As for the racing I thoroughly enjoyed it when I finally made it there. I gave this a 6
