I'm quite a big fan of the MotoGP franchise of games and also of real life bike racing. But this version leaves me a bit underwhelmed really.They don't seem to improve the game all that much from the previous versions.
In my eyes the previous versions of this game were so much more fun ... Read review

and tracks from this year's event providing the definitive 2 wheeled racing experience. The development team's overriding aim is to deliver an unparalleled handling model that allows access points for gamers of all skill levels and just as importantly provide a challenge to meet each player's abilities. ALL 3 MOTOGP CLASSESMotoGP 08 puts the player at the centre of the MotoGP experience by letting them join a team and compete alongside their sporting heroes in all three race classes - 125cc, 250cc and MotoGP. Recent MotoGP titles had excluded these titles at a cost and Capcom are keen to ensure that all the riders are faithfully represented, which also enables complete progression through the ranks as well as giving the gamer a different racing experience per class.With scaled and competitive AI which adjusts within limits to give a more enjoyable race experience on the lower levels but the higher levels show no mercy. You have the ability to set up a custom match search, create your own match setting up to 12 players in total.

Accessible to all but hard to master. - Quick matches TUTORIAL MODEAlso new for this year is a tutorial mode should you require it.

"I picked this game up for £20 second hand. So am just getting to grips with it really. I've been playing it for about 2 weeks now.
The game was previously developed by Climax but now it is done by Capcom. I was full of hope but can't say they've added all that much to the game. Appart from the different racing classes which is much appreciated.

MotoGP 08 puts the player at the centre of the MotoGP experience by letting them join a team and compete alongside their sporting heroes in all three race classes - 125cc, 250cc and MotoGP. Good results in qualifying and racing earn points that can then be exchanged for bike upgrades to improve attributes such as straight line speed, braking and cornering.
