Summary: MotoGP 06 really caught me by surprise, this is a well made game. many tracks, and different challenges. the graphics are pretty good. the controls are awesome. it only took me a few hours to get use to this type of racing. this game has extreme modes that offer different tracks and faster bikes and you can customize the bikes and the rider. also you can upgrade the bikes features like breaks, the tires, and even nitrous. that alone makes this game a must buy.
Conclusion: After the poo we had like project gotham 3 and need for speed most wanted i nearly gave up on racing games, but guess what im glad i didnt. being a score whore (i only play for achievements) normally i would give up on a game thats hard to control but thats the beauty of this game learning, learning how to drift around a corner at 150mph, learning what corners to brake on and what corners you dont have to.
Summary: If you're looking for an arcade style racer, look somewhere else. This game has a very big learning curve. Unless you've played previous MotoGp games, dont plan on picking this one up and being good at it the first time you play it. You'll have to put in a few hours before you really get the hang of it. But once you do get it down, its one of the BEST racing sims out there. The sense of speed and graphics are both amazing. This is also one of the best games on xbox live.
Conclusion: On the whole the game is in parts a port of MotoGP3 , you have very similar gameplay, replica interfaces and copied and pasted modes. Despite all that it still has a great online mode, absolutely blinding graphics and audio which will make bike lovers go weak at the knees. What with all the licensed bikes, riders and of course tracks would you really want to pass up the opportunity to play, why of course not? The final question is, is it truly worth £40?
Summary: I will have to echo McAllister's comments. MotoGP '06 is the best racing game I have ever played and I have played quite a few. It is as close to realism as it can get. The most impressive aspect of this game is not only the graphics but the game's ability to replicate the feel of a Racing Bike on a track with the exception of the occasional bug in your visor.
Summary: I've been riding motorcycles for the better part of 15 years. So I think i know a thing or two about realism, as far as video games go. This game does an amazing job of creating the feel of acceleration and braking through a turn. Who cares that you can't see your logos. This game was created for those of us who are actually motorcycle enthusiasts.
