The heart of the game is the Season mode, where you can join the MotoGP circuit as a rookie on any of the various teams in the 125cc class. The better the team you choose, the better the result they expect from you. There are 16 races in the season and each race has a basic routine. First you engage in Free Practice, which allows you to learn the track and adjust your bike's settings for best performance on that particular track. Part of this will be due to your riding style and once you find something that works, it won't need much adjustment for other tracks, except to adjust top speed vs acceleration. Some tracks such as Mugello, will need higher speeds, while tracks with shorter straights will be better with lower top speeds and higher acceleration.
After you're comfortable with the track and your settings, you will run through Qualifying Practice. This gives you three laps to get the best possible time and will determine your position at the start of the race. Finally, you will do the actual race itself. The season can be set up to have races of 2 laps, 5 laps or full (about 21-28 laps, depending on the length of the track and the class you're racing). Regardless of length, you get a full grid of opponents to race against (18+ for MotoGP, more for the smaller classes).
During the season you will get the opportunity to test new parts for your bike, such as a new engine, better brakes, new fairing, etc. To get these you must complete a very difficult challenge, such as getting your bike above a certain speed by the time it crosses a line, or stopping within a coned area after racing down a long straight, but without any preparation.
Depending on your results in your first season, you may get offered a chance to ride in the 250cc class, again picking the team you want to ride for. Finally, after 2 seasons you may get a chance to enter the premier class - MotoGP.
In addition to Season play, there is an Arcade mode for one-off racing and both online and local multiplayer modes. The Time Trial mode allows you to use a ghost replay and also shows the racing line of the ghost image, allowing you to visually see what you did the previous time through, no matter where the ghost image may actually be.
A Challenge Mode includes 125 different Challenges. Completing a Challenge awards MotoGP Points and unlocks things you can "buy" with those points. The Challenges range from winning a championship in season mode to specific one-off riding trials and can be very difficult. The various trials include racing a section of track within a specific time, following a difficult pylon course on various tracks, and a "survival" mode where you run a continuous race of 1 lap each against increasingly good opposition riders and bikes.
The MotoGP points allow you to purchase various things from the store. These are generally unlocked and made available for purchase by completing Challenges. You can "purchase" new tracks (such as Suzuka '02), all the riders in each class for play in Arcade mode, and various videos and still images from both the game and real MotoGP. You can also unlock a Legends racing class, but I have yet to do that and can only imagine it goes back to the 500cc 2-stroke era.
One particularly enjoyable aspect of the game is getting to race against some of the sport's stars, especially facing the current "young guns" like Dani Pedrosa, Randy de Puniet, and Casey Stoner, while they were still in the 250cc class.
As for the graphics, I don't know what others are complaining about. There is plenty of detail, especially where it is needed in the track and the braking identifiers. There is less flash than in Tourist Trophy, but you get to race against a full grid of opponents on a wide range of bikes, instead of against just 2-5 opponents, sometimes all on the same model, as in TT.
Also unlike TT, there is a range of difficulty levels and the ability to race in wet conditions. You can choose between Easy, Normal and Hard for the opponent ability in races. This directly affects how fast they can go on each track. Next, you can turn on or off Sim mode and, if not in Sim mode, can turn on Automatic Braking, which means all you have to do is hold down the gas and steer, which is great for younger children. You can set the weather conditions of indivudal races in Arcade mode and can choose to race the season in all Dry, all Wet, or Randomly selected weather. Racing in the rain is a particular challenge in that you lose all your normal braking markers and must really know the track to be successful.
Highly recommended for any Racing Game fan, and especially to fans of motorcycle racing. This game is so good, I bought MotoGP 2 and MotoGP 3 used from 3rd party sellers to get a feel for the earlier seasons, including the transition year between 500cc and 990cc eras. MotoGP is a great sport and this game is a great presentation of the sport and a a lot of fun with literally hundreds of hours of gamplay!
It maintains the great feel of MotoGP3, which is the most important thing. They've added a few tracks and have a new credit system.
The online feature is a lot of fun, except for the idiot noobies who barge their way through, binning everyone in sight. Then I found the feature to turn off the banging and suddenly the bikes became "invisible" to binning by other players. Turning that on and turning on the shortcut penalty made the wannabes flee from my races.
I thought I was good because I can beat the computer on Hard and break the developer lap times, but there are some SERIOUSLY good riders out there that put the hurt to me. I look forward to getting a USB headset and find out if they're 9 years old or 39.
The Challenges take a lot of time. The Time Trials are specifically difficult. I don't know how to unlock the Legends riders and it isn't anywhere on the internet.
So long story short; a great game, not perfect, but I'd be hard pressed to come up with anything to improve on it.
