  1. A decent game with a good amount of options and some challenges, but this is an arcade racer at heart with little consequences for extreme handling, other than sliding off the course and slowing down.
  2. Everything about this game ranges from meh to ugh; the gameplay, the visuals, the physics, the audio, and even the controls. If you're a diehard fan, then get it. Otherwise, please skip it.

    Even when viewed as the budget title it is, Ducati World Championship doesn't make the grade because you simply can't have fun when you're feeling this frustrated.
  4. Value priced at only 20 bucks, but not rreally worth the penicillin shot. [Dec 2007, p.70]

    This is a great motorcycle game just for the fact that you don't crash as soon as you hit the grass like you do in so many other motorcycle games. The blur effect in this game when you are going 170+mph is the closest to what it looks like in real life that I have seen on any motorcycle game to date. If you do a quick race and pick the SuperBike class, team number 27, you will be doing wheelies and endos right away. Only negs are that it makes my computer run funky after I stop playing (until I reboot) and my AVG antivirus said it was a virus at first. O-yeah, and the British guy that keeps telling you to go faster (but you can turn that off). Great buy, great game. Expand

    Well first off if your a huge ducati fan ( Me ) then its worth the low price. I got it on sale for $2.49 anyway. If your looking for an allround good graphics, controls, handleing, varity motorbike game then get MOTOGP08 NOT this!! The graphics are weak. The controls are annoying (can't have what you want) and the engines sound crappy. Think of it as a Good ducati game that could of been made back in 1998 or something not 2007. Expand

    Bought for less than 2 Euros on Steam and still I regret my money. Ducati World Championship is just not a good game: not only its controls and physics are terrible but has the poorest graphics I've ever seen in a game since 1995 (maybe). Never again/10. Expand

    Agree with Gord Goble and his review @ IGN. This is one sad 1995 wannabe race game. I had such high hopes. Comparing it to MotoGP 03 (for XBox), or MotoGP07 (Xbox 360), Ducati World does not cut it. Poor graphics, sound, controls, music. And the game never retains the settings that have been made. It has locked up on two of my PCs that both exceed all the recommended specs to run the game. Will give them positive credit for 3 items: i) damage score to bike when an accident occurs; ii) damage impact to rider health for an accident -have to go see the doctor.; iii) adreanline boost when riding successfully for a period of time, allows the rider to turn it on, and catch up, or make time. MotoGP could use those features. Otherwise, this was a waste of $20.00. Expand

    This game is crap, I've never heard a Ducati Monster that sounds like a 50cc scooter. Made in 2007? more like 1987. I might as well have ate my twenty dollars, it would have been less painful! Expand
