4.0 out of 5 stars Great Riding Simulator July 3, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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. All tracks in the game are based on actual MotoGP tracks, and there are a good number of bikes to choose from. You get to customize the bikes as you go, with numerous tweaks and decorative touches to add.

The bikes are, of course, the entire point of a motorcycle racing game. The detail and work they put into each bike is VERY impressive. You can really see the gleam on the paint curves and the worn creases of the leather. The tracks show an equal amount of work. For as many minute components that make up each large track, there are numerous small touches that you can see if you tool around at slow speed.

The game's training program helps you learn the basics - but even this area isn't "easy". To do the curves properly, you have to handle both the bike's steering and the rider's balance, just as in real life. My boyfriend and I have done a fair amount of long distance riding, so this sort of thing becomes second nature in real life. The game is helping you learn these same skills.

On to the actual racing. You can choose from the 2005 or 2006 season if you wish. You can do practice runs on a track before you qualify, which is really nice to help you learn it. The arrows which come up are both helpful and inobtrusive. If you bump another rider, they make an angry hand gesture at you, while you wave bye-bye to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simulation NOT arcade. November 13, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

People need to know this game is not for everybody. Its not one of those racing games that you can get out on the track and just floor it the whole way through.

2.0 out of 5 stars about as good as the original xbox version June 14, 2006
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Brought Moto Gp 2006 on the strength of the review over on Ign. I totally agree with what Sierra Whisky has written in his review of Moto Gp.

Moto GP on the 360 is the same as the Xbox version with a few tweaks here and there without nearly enough improvements to make the game worth while. For an Xbox game it is ok, for a 360 game it is not nearly as good as expected.

The game feels rushed, maybe in hurry to cash in on the release of the 360 for which not nearly enough good games are available for it.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As the officially licensed game of the MotoGP circuit, MotoGP 06 does ok. As the officially licensed game of the MotoGP circuit, Thq could have gone a bit deeper. The game modes, Grand Prix and Extreme 600, 1000 and 1200, are each simply a string of races, back to back, where you earn points or money and progress through the rankings. MotoGP 06 doesn't make an effort to capture any of the rivalries or team control of the GP circuit like we've seen in EA's NASCAR franchise, and it would have been nice to be pulled further into a sport most Americans are unfamiliar with. MotoGP lacks personality.

In the single player game, you'll start out on the GP circuit and take on either the 2005 or 2006 season, which is basically a different order to the tracks you race. GP tracks are replicas of the officially licensed tracks and require quite a bit of finesse on the brakes. Burnout fans beware -- the MotoGP franchise is simulation not an arcade game, so be warned!. There's no turbo boost or anything fancy, just racing.

After you earn enough money in the 600cc Extreme mode, you'll earn enough money to buy a 1000cc bike, and then, down the line, enough to buy a 1200cc bike. All this earning money stuuf is becoming boring in game, can't they think of something new for crying out loud!

Visually, MotoGP is an improve over the other moto gp games also by Thq on Xbox. though not without a few problems. The road surfaces look particularly good, but I am a sad case like that, and I found myself pausing every now and then to take a glance at cracks in the asphalt, . MotoGP 06 features neat looking clouds. You'll notice some pop-in with bushes in the distance, and far-away objects don't look nearly as good as the riders or the track close-up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get off your couches and actually ride a bike. July 8, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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. Not for some 220 pound couch potatoe who does nothing but play video games that you "can't customize more than one bike" at a time. To THQ and Microsoft, SWEET FRIGGIN GAME. And to you lifeless pricks, GET A LIFE.
