  1. Easily the best motorcycle racing game currently available for the PS2 and is probably one of the top 5 games in the entire racing genre at this time. The visuals are nearly flawless and the presentation is network quality.
  2. If you're looking for a definitive motorcycle racing sim, look no further.
  3. The improvements do not make for an altogether new game but what is offered here definitely adds to the enjoyment of a truly spectacular motorcycle racing series.

    If you have the determination to master the many nuances of motorcycle racing, you'll find that MotoGP3 delivers an exceptionally exhilarating ride. It's a game for enthusiasts, but a great game nonetheless.
  5. Plays just like Namco's previous two games, with deceptively difficult turns and a great sense of speed. [Apr 2003, p.116]
  6. The sequel isn’t a major overhaul, but the added tracks and gameplay further enhances an already solid racing series.
  7. 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.

    The most fun multi player racing game I've ever played. Replays are even worth watching.

    It's a very good game! I can say it because I like this type of video-game and I'd tried it.

    This is the motorcycle simulation. So, with that said, expect a steep learning curve, as one should with any simulation. Nice graphics, true This is the motorcycle simulation. So, with that said, expect a steep learning curve, as one should with any simulation. Nice graphics, true to the tracks, Excellent stuff. P.S. In the helmet and cockpit aren't the same. If you notice, where the riders are looking and where the cockepit is pointed are seldom the same. Helmet cam would reflect rider posture, not just be a view that's barried in the controls between the clip-ons. Collapse

    Finally the PS2 has a motobike game to be proud of with enough tracks now for a proper seaon and enough fantasy tracks to keep you playing Finally the PS2 has a motobike game to be proud of with enough tracks now for a proper seaon and enough fantasy tracks to keep you playing for hours. It may not be a great leap from Moto GP 2 but the extra tracks, new challenges and the steep leaning curve along with the ultra realistic handling makes this probably the best bike game on any consle anywhere and should be a top priority for racing fans and motocyclistc alike. It's just awesome. Expand

    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? Expand
