It's great when you're straight...

Cons

  • Steep learning curve
  • Trying to find others online
  • AI race-line doesn't vary

Nov 27, 2007

Here's how a race pans out in MotoGP '07: start at the back of the grid, overtake the entire field by the first bend, plough off the track, flip into the air like a rag doll, get back on the bike and repeat until the end of the race.

That's a simplified summary, but it's fair to say there's a steep learning curve. Despite a few brief training modules, the only real way to master staying on the track is to put in hours of practice. Whether you'll do this will depend on how patient you are, and whether you have a decent analogue joypad: playing this with a keyboard is akin to trying to plait snot.
