  1. In terms of options, GP2 has them in droves. [Feb 2002, p.108]
  2. Its gameplay is superb, the visuals excellent and the whole experience leaves you on the edge of your seat.
  3. Features more changes and enhancements to the original game than most annual sports games from EA or Sega do, and the bottom line is that MotoGP 2 is a great addition for racing fans who missed the original MotoGP.

    It feels like an add-on pack rather than a sequel, and I guess the only way I would seriously consider buying this is if I were a diehard motorcycle fan who absolutely adored the first.
  5. The ironic thing is that Namco has removed the pictures of the riders during the races - that's a feature I used to like! [Feb 2002, p.82]
  6. The simulated gameplay is well created, the depth is more than appropriate, and the graphics are quite good, but the repetitive soundtrack and somewhat frustrating races and opponents take away from the fun factor.
  7. We had hoped that Namco was going to take this chance to fix the many obvious problems with the game – sadly no, they’ve just churned out a virtually identically sequel, warts ’n’ all. Avoid!

    Excellent game let down by a number of flaws. Lack of avaialability of lap times- one blink and they're gone. In two player mode, the Excellent game let down by a number of flaws. Lack of avaialability of lap times- one blink and they're gone. In two player mode, the replay focuses on the bike which finishes first - no good if you finish second. Expand
