Review: Moto GP 10/11

Comments No Comments

Vrooooom! There’s been a whole fleet of decent racers in recent months, so a new bike racing game is always going to be welcome – if only for the variety. However, you’d be hard-pressed to name a decent one over the years due to notorious problems with handling.

So, will this latest update have us polishing our helmets in joy, or burning the ol’ racing leathers in frustration?

It’s worth highlighting upfront that I’m not a big moto fan, preferring F1…in fact, give me 4 wheels any day of the week. However, a good game is a good game – I’m not a soldier and I certainly don’t kill people, but I sure as heck love Call of Duty!

The problems, however, with this game are apparent from the moment you load it up. Menu screens that are so dated they make Phil Collins seem cool; no music or ‘officialness’ (say what you like about EA games, but they’re as slick as hell and always set the standard) and a general ‘this could be a PS2 game’ vibe. Not a good start.

Getting into the game, we have the usual championship, time trial, challenge and multi-player options (yawn)- and very little else. A new career mode makes things a bit more interesting, as does the ability to customise your driving style…but unless you can find for a bargain price via Game Crawler, there’s little to recommend here that you won’t find elsewhere.

Graphics are poor, failing to capture the sense of speed and atmosphere that must surely be essential for a bike game. And the handling…..you rarely feel that you’ll fly off your bike at 200 mph; feeling instead clunky and unrealistic. Real-life bike physics? I’d settle for a little bit of chemistry.

To be honest, Grand Theft Auto 4 bikes felt far superior. Moto GP 10/11 feels devoid of creativity, rushed and lazy. If you’re a hardcore fan I’m sure you’ll appreciate the latest driver decals and stats (as well as the promise of free DLC throughout the season). But for everyone else, you’d be far better to pickup a cheap version of Forza Motorsport 3, Need for Speed: Shift 2 or Test Drive Unlimited 2 via this very site.
