Moto GP 07 review

The hardest of hardcore sims vrooms back

Pros

  • Still the best biking series
  • Fundamentals of bike racing are solid
  • Dense features

Cons

  • Steep learning curve
  • May be for hardcore fans only
  • Where's the PS3 version?

Where else can this series go? It’s always been the best bike racing game, and still is, despite sequel after sequel. The 07 edition has its share of new features, but the fundamentals of the bike handling are as pleasantly solid as they’ve always been.

New stuff? Well, 800cc bikes are now available, although "800cc" is just another way of saying "really fast." And the ultra-realistic Extreme mode has been revamped to allow, potentially, millions of different bike customisations. But if you don't fancy that, you can always switch on Arcade handling and race people online for their "pink slips" - winning their bike, basically. It's a dense package of stuff, and all the racers and bikes have been updated to reflect the 2007 racing season.
