    A true career mode is needed to help flesh this collection of tracks out. [Apr 2003, p.85]

    It feels far too much like "Moto GP2" to be considered worthy. [Apr 2003, p.62]
  3. Sadly, your competitors behave like drones, slaves to the racing line. When a rider glances over at you, your presence has not really been registered.

    MotoGP 3's main fault, if you can call it that, is that the game is all too similar to "MotoGP 2." [Apr 2003, p.27]
  5. Bigger and, in many ways, better than previous GPs, but the lack of real depth may leave enthusiasts reaching for the (Riding) spirits. [PSM2]

    I really enjoy playing this game. The graphics, gameplay, missions and price of $24.00 bucks I got it for made it well worth it. I'm a I really enjoy playing this game. The graphics, gameplay, missions and price of $24.00 bucks I got it for made it well worth it. I'm a big fan of Moto gp and felt the Motorcycle and rider depictions were done well. Although the game would have been a lot better if there were some rider personality conflicts, rider trash talking, explosive crashes and a secret unlockable "full lengh" Moto Gp movie. Yes, this game has some flaws, but what game doesn't? Full Review »
