Summary: I know this game is years old but I picked it back up after selling the game originally a few years back. I use to play online and race and was pretty good. The tracks are awesome and graphics are real good, you can customize your bikes with gearing, tires, basic suspension settings and a few other settings. If you want to go fast, you got to learn to use the manual transmission and power slide through tight turns.
Summary: This game is pretty fun, although it is extremely difficult. The graphics are nice, and there is a large variety of courses and racers. Being one of the few 4 player racing games currently out for the xbox 360 makes this a great game for playing with friends. I definitely recommend this game, especially if you're a racing fan.
Summary: You don't have to be a motorcycle enthusiest to pick this game up and have fun. In fact, you pretty much just need to know that motorcycles have 2 wheels and can drive really, really fast. A lot of people have been complaining that this game is too tough, but I haven't figured out why. I don't have any difficulty keeping the bike on course (only took me one full lap at race speed to figure each track out) and the AI is generally slow even on champion level.
Summary: Xbox 360 owners have gone through dry spells that rival those of the Sahara Desert. New games come out as frequently as intelligent statements out of George W. Bush. I've found myself testing the waters of all sorts of games and I never thought I'd leave the anchor resting for so long when I picked up THQ and Climax's Moto GP '06. What is essentially the Xbox 360's first simulation racer is also one of the top overall racing titles.

Summary: Some games are meant to be arcadey, while others are meant to give a real world experience even if it's tough to master. MotoGP falls squarely in the second area. Be prepared for some realistic motorcycle riding in this racing game. The game provides three modes - a quick race for the patience challenged, time trials for fast challenges, and then the career mode.
Summary: Climax knows a thing or two about speed, but the team has outdone itself this time by delivering a new game on a new console less than a year after the release of MotoGP 3. The short development cycle is definitely apparent in that MotoGP 06 is less a significant step forward for the series than an incremental upgrade to the previous game. However, given that the previous game is one of the best racing titles on the Xbox, that's certainly not a bad deal for racing fans.
Conclusion: I like bike games ,as they are more of a challenge than car racers, you need to brake into corners and try to get a good racing line,you can't expect to go flat out all the way round ,it just doesn't work and of course, you will fall off if you hit another rider ,you are on two wheels not four ( that being said,I was in first place and a rider just ran straight in to me and knocked me flying while he carried on to leave me playing catch up) the best way to play it (I...
Moto GP 2006 (Xbox 360): The most fun you can have on 2 wheels
12 September 2006
Summary: Most people at some point have probably played a car game at some point and be used to the way you need to drive in them. Having only two wheels makes for a very different driving experience and a totally different driving style. You need to be very smooth, and getting the correct line is more important than having high speed. This does take some getting used to, but is rewarding when you master it.
Pros: Good graphics, great controls
Cons: Extreme mode is locked away until you complete a GP season
