    MotoGP 14 represent one of the best works made by Milestone and an evolution compared to the previous iteration: graphics, simulation, game modes and content are undoubtedly improved, although there is still some technical lacking.

    If your primary attraction to racing games is the visual thrill and stylish presentation, you'll be best served elsewhere. Fortunately, as a racing experience MotoGP is up there with the best.

    It doesn't embrace new-gen the way you'd hope, but remains an involving and content-rich sim. [Sept 2014, p.70]
  4. MotoGP 14 is a very good racing game.

    Under a less than exciting package, is hidden a fine motor biking game with tons of options and game modes. If Milestone will improve the graphics and physics engines for the 2015 version, we are in for something big.

    ctually I rate it a .. stunning 7!!! .. and that only because I cheated to unlock all the crap.. with every bike unlocked it changed from a 2ctually I rate it a .. stunning 7!!! .. and that only because I cheated to unlock all the crap.. with every bike unlocked it changed from a 2 to a 7.. as the WORST thing I know is unlocking stuff in sims (you hear me 1C and 777.. I hate it!) even if MotoGP 14 is a sim 'light', it'a a bit more realistic then MotoGP 13.
    Sure Milestone are relly slow and totally incompetent! And I will with most certainty never buy another game/sim from them.. but come on! We still have to setup out controller each time we start it, that should've been a 1 day job at launch!!
    Upped it to a 7, since there is an (unofficial) temporarilly fix for keeping controller settings between games!

    There is one thing I'd love to get people to understand about this game, and this is it. MotoGP 14 and it's older brother 13 suffer from someThere is one thing I'd love to get people to understand about this game, and this is it. MotoGP 14 and it's older brother 13 suffer from some of the worst visuals that I've ever seen on a Motorcycle game. I would argue that the graphics are below what you can find if you were to go back in time and purchase the games made by THQ for the Xbox 360. Especially "07, that game was one of the most perfect motorcycle racing games that I've ever played. Everything felt so right in that game that I still use it when I compare other motorcycle racing games. It's steering system, using the left stick, while using the right to apply brake and throttle were spot on. It also managed to use a system that allowed you to use the throttle stick so that you could get extra lean in your turns, which gave it even more detailed control on your steering.

    None of this is used on this game. I will say this, if your interested in graphics, this game is definitely not for you. The visuals here are below most games I play on PC. While there are times where it looks manageable, for the most part, they are just weak visuals.

    But for me, the final nail in the coffin is that this game does not include the option to play the game from a perspective that makes you feel like your driving a motorcycle. It's hard to explain it, but this will be my attempt to do so. If you imagine a driving game, mostly you see the road as it is, usually level and flat and that's fine since your in a car. On a motorcycle game though, the game should offer you a viewpoint where the view from behind the motorcycle or even from the helmet shows the world leaning over, and the bike itself stays vertical. It's the camera used in MotoGP "07 and the previous ones. While those games were never meant to be simulators, at least not to my knowledge, they did include this type of camera to lend the game a sense of authenticity. In Moto GP '13 and '14, the view is always flat, and the only leaning is done by the bike. For me, it feels horrible.

    So, in all, it's not a very good game. I know that there are some who love it, but I'm guessing those people love it because they never had the opportunity to play the THQ games, because if those were still clear in their memory, they would hate this game.

    But as a side note, having played nearly every Moto racing game, from THQ to Capcom's version, I have a good sense for what a good motorcycle game should play like. In that, I had been depressed that no company put forth the effort to try to match the level of the THQ versions, and I think I've finally found one. If you purchase a PS4, and you do have Driveclub, you can buy an expansion they've put on offer that turns the game into the most amazingly fun Motorcycle racing game I've ever played. Of course, it still lacks the behind the bike viewpoint, but, it does offer the inner helmet viewpoint where the world leans and the bike stays vertical. It's not as easy to use as the old '07 system where you still had the much wider peripheral vision due to the camera being behind the bike, but what you have in the new version is the leaning viewpoint effect, while only loosing a small amount of peripheral loss, but an amazingly detailed world where the graphics are seriously mind blowing. If you love motorcycle racing games, you owe it to yourself to give Drive Club Bikes a chance. And the best news in all of this, even if you didn't purchase Drive Club, the Bikes DLC is available as a stand alone piece of software. It was only 19.99, so well worth your time and money if you love MotoGP style racing:)

    Every review you have read about MotoGP14 so far is correct. Below expectation with this game. MotoGP13 had its bugs and you would haveEvery review you have read about MotoGP14 so far is correct. Below expectation with this game. MotoGP13 had its bugs and you would have thought Milestone would have corrected the bugs when they made 14, not so. They have created even more bugs in this game and the game even worse than 13. Milestone needs to stop trying to re-invent this game and just fix the current bugs in the game. Eventually what is see in the future is that Milestone will cancel production of this game due to lack of revenue because people are tired of wasting money on faulty product. In the end, we will be left with no motorcycle racing games. I say bring back BlackBean. Expand

The specs of theI am unable to play MotoGP 14 PC game on my Laptop Dell Inspiron 15 3537 (6GB i5 4th Gen, 2Gb AMD Radeon Video Windows 8.1). The specs of the Laptop are well above the Minimum Specs required for the game. I have an updated AMD Radeon 8670 Graphics driver, updated BIOS. Still the game hangs after naviganting he first few screens without starting the race, and makes a creeking sound with some hot air from the fan. Is it due to Laptop or due to the game itself? Any help or pointers would be a big help! Thanks in advance. Expand

    This game has serious issues. The graphics are jumpy and you cannot do anything about it no matter what you set the video options to. TheThis game has serious issues. The graphics are jumpy and you cannot do anything about it no matter what you set the video options to. The sound is ridiculous. Sounds like lawnmowers instead of bikes. I'd be willing to overlook that if the game was actually playable, but it isn't. Also, if you enter the career mode, you cannot exit the game unless you ctl+alt+delete and use your task manager to close it. This game was clearly shipped incomplete and they obviously pay no attention to beta testers. There is absolutely no way they could have missed some of these bugs. Unless Milestone does something about it, it will be my last purchase from them, and unless you see a notice saying they have patched these issues, you should wait. It's pretty sad. Expand
