Summary

The Moto GP games are not ones I tend to spend much time with in the past, picking this up I appreciated how streamlined the whole experience was. I could quickly set up a rider albeit due to a limited set of options but anyway I could pick a team to race for and which category to race in. Just like the F1 games the game is presented like TV coverage and has full commentary. Luckily for a novice like me, the game has so many assists and settings that I can make it so I can at least keep the bike on the track! That’s as far as it goes as I still struggle to make a serious impact as it is difficult and very easy to lose it. That said you can get a lot of game out of it and if you are used to it then quids in. To me it’s a good game but doesn’t have many options for customization or making yourself feel unique it’s a very simple boot and play type affair.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
