Excerpt: MotoGP 10/11 is an improvement over last years. In fact I am very pleased that Capcom is continuing this franchise. There are so few good motorcycle racing games on the market today. The feel of this game is a vast improvement over last years. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a major blessing in the form of this game on the Playstation 3.
Conclusion: MotoGP 10/11 successfully builds upon the last game in the series with improved visuals, overhauled handling and physics and new modes that make this the most comprehensive in the series yet. However, it still feels like MotoGP has a way to go before it really comes into its own. MotoGP 10/11 is good, but still a few laps away from achieving greatness.
Summary: I was one of those gamers which approached " MotoGP 10/11 " with a little scepticism thanks to the frustrating titles previously released in the series yet what I got was quite a pleasant surprise.
Excerpt: In this latest official MotoGP game, you take on the role of a new rider in the lowly 125cc support class, hoping to work your way up to Moto2 and eventually the MotoGP series itself. The game includes all the riders, teams, and tracks from the 2010 season, with free downloadable content promised to update the game to the 2011 season once it begins.
Pros: Fantastic team management gameplay, Online races support up to 20 players, Co-op career is great fun
Cons: Handling has major flaws, Graphics are inconsistent at best, Co-op career is offline split-screen only, Very little has been improved since last year's game
Conclusion: If you go into MotoGP 10/11 expecting a balanced simulation of the sport then you're going to be disappointed, but there's still some fun to be had in the career mode if you are willing to look beyond these problems. As in last year's game, you start a new 125cc team by choosing a name, a bike, and your team colours before heading out to the first race of the real season.
Pros: Fantastic team management gameplay, Online races support up to 20 players, Co-op career is great fun.
Cons: Handling has major flaws, Graphics are inconsistent at best, Co-op career is offline split-screen only, Very little has been improved since last year's game.
Conclusion: Fortunately, the success of a racer can usually be judged by how sweaty your palms get when actually racing, and MotoGP 10/11 confidently achieves a considerable degree of palm clamminess! Putting in the time to get to grips with the bikes, to hone your skills in practice sessions and qualifiers and then setting about flexing your abilities and knowledge of the tracks against 26 other computer controlled riders can be massively rewarding, and even when you’ve claimed the...
Conclusion: The best next-gen motorbike racing simulator to date. Superb realism, stunning recreation of engine sounds and the judicious attention to detail create an immersive and brilliant racer capable of standing up to any on the market today.
Summary: MotoGP 09/10 disappointed many fans of the real sport. It was too arcadey, too unrealistic, and too forgiving, appealing more to high-octane speed freaks who have no real interest in the actual sport at hand. In fact, bikes practically couldn’t crash, braking could be instantaneous, and so at times it felt like your bike might as well be a car. With MotoGP 10/11, it seems Capcom have been paying attention and changed things accordingly.
Conclusion: The last time I truly enjoyed a two-wheeled racing game was back in the day when MotoGP 2 was a technical innovation for the original Xbox. Unfortunately, the handful of releases since have always lacked something which made its predecessor the daddy of motorbike racing.
