    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.

    MotoGP '07 tried to be a sim and an arcade title at the same time and fails on both accounts. Players are left with a half-baked racer that isn't bad but isn't anything you should be running out to buy.
  3. 50
    MotoGP 07's sheer lack of content is offensive, given the asking price.
  4. 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]
  5. A long way off from living up to previous titles in the series.
  6. From the drab visuals to the limp presentation, it screams 'mediocre' like a moped on a steep hill. [Dec 2007, p.114]
  7. This is made for the hardcore set, there's no doubt. It is nice to see a game that doesn't phone it in for the late platform, and delivers a great title. Capcom has done a nice job, and delivered something that would have created quite a stir in the PS2's prime.

    If only Arcade mode wasn't rubbish, this would be the complete package. [Issue#160, p.74]
  9. The 2007 season with all the familiarities and challenge you'd expect. [Dec 2007, p.83]
  10. 75
    It’s a must for GP fans, and recommended for racing enthusiasts.
  11. The best bike racer you're likely to find on PS2. [Dec 2007, p.83]
  12. All the pilots and all the tracks of this season, with a handling that falls between an arcade racer and a simulation. It’s a competent proposition but there are better alternatives. [Nov 2007]
  13. Provided you're up to the challenge, Capcom's motorcycle racer is a decent debut on the PS2.
  14. Capcom’s attempt at bringing a strict motorbike racing simulator is a good try but it just doesn’t come together smoothly in all the right places where it counts the most.
  15. It won’t obtain a negative review because it has its value, but when there are better games available it is difficult to recommend MotoGP 07, unless money is starting to weight in your wallet or you catch it a good price.
  16. Yet again, the PS2’s outing plays a distant second-fiddle to the more established output of Climax on the 360 and, while graphically Milestone gets a good grunt out of its hardware, those who are eager to take their PS2 for a spin on two wheels will have a hard time choosing between this stunted effort or the ultra conservative Tourist Trophy.
  17. 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.
  18. This simply isn't what I'd call a polished game; it is below what the average racing game should be. It's largely ruined by its impairing visuals, as they prevent you from accurately judging distances, thus ruining your ability to take a proper turn. It offers the rudimentary gameplay content, and doesn't have any online gameplay to speak of.
  19. MotoGP 07 just plain looks limp next to the better games.
  20. 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.
  21. 80
    I've been a sucker for the pulse-pounding excitement of the MotoGP race days for a few years now, and couldn't be happier with how MotoGP 07 turned out.
  22. Capcom comes off like a crotch rocket vet with MotoGP 07, even though it's the publisher's first foray into the breakneck franchise since snagging the PS2 rights from Namco. [Holiday 2007, p.75]]
  23. 60
    The course selection is world-class.
  24. 60
    With limited customization available for riders (only eight!) a lack of any real explanation on how to actually play the game, a non-existent soundtrack (exactly how many hours of "vroom, vroom, vroom, screeeech, crash" can a person be expected to take?), and a limited sense of fun that other racing games like SSX and BurnOut (or even Forza 2) excel at, MotoGP 07 is a serious, hardcore game that demands a high skill level and a certain amount of earnestness from its players.
  25. 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.
  26. The act of driving and racing motorcycles in Moto GP 07 is a solid foundation to begin the new series, but that's almost all there is.

    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 sameThere 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. Full Review »

    MotoGP 2007 is like the real MotoGp in TV. I thing it is the best motoGP in the word.

    Great game! Your straight into the Moto GP (800cc) not waisting time working your way up throught the ranks with the smaller bikes. If you Great game! Your straight into the Moto GP (800cc) not waisting time working your way up throught the ranks with the smaller bikes. If you have played any of the Moto GP games you shouldn't have and drama's with this one, better sound, better graphics, more realistic and best of all, all the riders. Overall I give it a 9, i hope in Moto GP 08 though there will be an option to enable damage to your bike when you put it down and maybe some commentary. Full Review »
