Excerpt: It is always a disappointment when a reviewable copy of a game does not come in. Especially after all the months of coverage, high level of anticipation, and excitement. But sometimes even media outlets as large as Family Friendly Gaming fall through the cracks. Usually after a major earthquake or something. So I had to save up to purchase MotoGP 09/10. I found it on sale not to long ago, and so it went to the top of my list.
Fun motorcycle racing simulation requires practice to win.

Excerpt: Moto GP 09/10 has done something pretty unique for a sports game.

With the ’09 Season fully installed on the disc, they are giving out updates from the ’10 Season as it happens, for free! It’s an interesting premise, and hasn’t been tried before.

Excerpt: We Fallout 3 fans are a lucky bunch. Bethesda’s previous downloadable offerings have added more than a considerable amount of playability to an already excellent game. We’ve reclaimed Alaska , ventured into The Pitt and overrun the Adams Air Force Base , and now it’s been announced that there’ll be at least another two expansions released this year, with Point Lookout being the first.
Excerpt: Officially licensed racing sims must be a mixed blessing to work on. On one hand you know, quite clearly what needs to be done, given that you've got quite strict guidelines to work within, yet on the other, trying to do anything above and beyond what people expect, and to therefore get noticed, can't be easy. This is what faced developer Monumental Games when it was handed the reins of MotoGP 09/10. So what did it do to make MotoGP 09/10 stand out?
Excerpt: is a game which tries to straddle the line between arcade racing and true simulation. The game not only does an admirable job of mixing the two the styles of play, but it can be tweaked to be either/or, so

Summary: The game is very repetitive and gives little rewards for your efforts. If you enjoy extremely repetitive simulation style racing games, you might enjoy this. Though don't expect a Gran Turismo or Forza level of control.
Pros: The only MotoGP game to be released in 2 years.
