  • Summary: Compete in a full season, create your own customised season, or select a one-off race either on your own or against a friend. Whether gamers are new to the racing genre, fans of four-wheeled racers looking for a new challenge or veterans of motorcycle games, the diverse handling models of MotoGP 07 allows players of varied skill levels to access and enjoy the adrenaline fuelled world of MotoGP. Features such as riding aids provide newcomers to the series with the confidence to push their bikes to the limit. Experienced players have the option to independently control front and rear brakes as well as the rider's position, making them feel at one with their bike as they enter and exit the tightest of hairpins inches from the tarmac, before stepping on the gas to reach speeds of well over 200mph/320kph. Plus players can also adjust the AI of their race opponents, modifying speed and ability to match their own riding level and create a more balanced race. Featuring a comprehensive set of 100 trials, each available at three difficulty levels, MotoGP 07's Challenge Mode tests and hone players' skills. Events include slalom challenges where players handling abilities are put to the test as they navigate a series of gates placed the length of the circuit and time trials which challenge players to beat the lap record for each circuit.

  1. A jewel in the biking helmet. Accessible, enjoyable and thrilling Moto GP 07 brings a sport, and gaming genre, to life. [Nov 2007, p.86]

    If only Arcade mode wasn't rubbish, this would be the complete package. [Issue#160, p.74]

    For those with the patience to stick it out and practice, practice, practice, there is a good single player game behind this. Biking fans and purists alike will find plenty to enjoy and keep them busy through the winter months while it's a bit too cold to go out biking for real.
  4. A long way off from living up to previous titles in the series.
  5. The problem with niche titles is that they’re basically designed to serve a specific market. If you follow the MotoGP circuit, you will greatly enjoy emulating your favorite riders at breakneck speeds making daring maneuvers at tracks all around the world. If you’re just a casual racing fan or motorcycle fan, you won’t find enough variety to keep you interested.
  6. As much as I do appreciate the realism the title so firmly embraces, the difficulty that accompanies it is just too off putting. High speed affairs are supposed to be fun, not frustrating and annoying. In the end, accelerate, brake, accelerate, brake, fall, then proceed to curse a lot is not a practice I want to get into.
  7. Take that 30 bones and either buy Tourist Trophy or burn it. Either way it will be better used than if you purchased this garbage.

    There is really not too much to this game. The graphics are marginally better than SBK:World Championship. I have a feeling they are the same engine because all the menus are similar. The tracks have zero elevation and zero dimensionality. Its very difficult to decide when to brake because of the graphics. They could have made this game on SNES. The dirt and grass is pixelated noise. There is no music. It doesn't have progressive scan mode or widescreen. The actual racing is very average and once you start winning its incredibly boring. The simulation mode is unplayable. There are times when my bike flips for no reason. Skip this one and get Tourist Trophy. There aren't any exciting motorcycle games on the PS2, and MotoGP 07 didn't change anything. Tourist Trophy is not a good racing game, but its an OK motorcycle experience. MotoGP 07 is an average Capcom game that I wouldn't recommend to anyone at this point in time. Expand
