The tracks look like they're lifted right out of Gran Toursimo 4. MO - Review! Review!! The choice of rides looks good too. If it's anything like GT 1-4, we're talking PS2 only, sorry pc, mac, xbox, etc.

Evidentally the MotoGP series on Xbox wasn't up to par?

It looks like you can even pick a scooter to race! Nice touch!

OMG!!! this could be the best thing ever. I don't know how many hours I've spent on the Gran Turismo series. Considering the rain we're having in California I just may be able to cope with day to day life until the weather changes.

The MotoGP series on X-Box is pretty good - but obviously, the addition of real licensed street and racing bikes would be pretty sweet. The riding mechanics on MotoGP aren't bad, though - analog everything (throttle, front brake, rear brake, steering and forward / back body position).



Bikes are so, I don't know, viscerally organic I guess, compared to cars, that I get more relative satisfaction out of driving simulators. Bike simulators / games just lose way too much of the experience.

Saw a good review on Gamespot.. Looks like a game I'll need to pick up sometime. I haven't liked some of the MC racing games that have been around since some of them actually make it faster to brake by using the engine than the actual brakes.



Oh well, this oughta be better.

I can't get to it from work, ("This site is being blocked by Tyson Foods because it may contain inappropriate or non-business material." blah, blah, blah....) but if this is the game I'm thinking of - you don't actually control the bike - rather, you control the *RIDER* and the Rider controls the bike. There are a few minor glitches in the way the bikes react to their environment, but this is the most realistic Moto game to date.

The MotoGP games I've played have licensed bikes and riders.



Once upon a time I played Superbike 2001 for PC and it was all licensed too.

Mmmm. OK.



Never did get the game thing. Games just can't match the real thing for me.



FWIW, I was a programmer for several years.
