Summary: Three hours ago I put this on for a 'quick race' before i hopped on my real fireblade to go to the shop. The shop is now closed! SBK08 may be out of date now SBK09 is around but all that means is you can get a hugely enjoyable bike racing game for a bargain price. Whether you want a quick race, a full weekend or a full season you wont be dissapointed.
Summary: I got MotoGP first and loved it, especially the fact that that you had to build up your carrer through 125cc and 250cc. Did not like the fact that you were limited to only 5 seasons. It is difficult, as it should be and I don't know how it could be made more realistic to actually racing a bike. SBK came my way and it is both superior and inferior to MotoGP. The realism of riding is almost identical although your back wheel spins up far more easily in this game.

Summary: Why on earth does Sony allow games like this to be released on the PS3 format, it just further supports the argument that most of my friends have that the Xbox may not be as powerful but hell they have better games. I was thoroughly disappointed spending yet another £40 on a game, oh well at least I've got a blu-ray player!!!!
Summary: Well, i am a huuuge bike fan and I was looking forward to this game. And I was quite dissapointed really. GRAPHICS: Good graphics, just a shame about realism! 4/5 REALISM: Not great at all, I was exspecting and hoping it too be relistic so its just like actually racing. But it isn't. It dont feel that realistic at all!! 2/5 GAMEPLAY: Ok, very average. 3/5 Finnally GAME MODES/ FEATURES: Not Great, Championship modes ok but get boring after a while.
Summary: What a great game. Don't just expect to jump on and be great at it first time out though. It takes patience. You'll crash 10 times in the 1st lap and 5 times on your 15 but one you get the hang of it it all becomes clear. One mastered its very satisfying. This game will suit bike enthusiasts. Not little babies who expect to go round corners without braking, then go to a review site to slag the game off when they can't play it.
