  1. MotoGP 08 is the best chance that motorcycling fans can find at this moment. Its control is fine, and the presence of the Career Mode assures many hours of entertainment.
  2. There are some shortcomings but on the whole MotoGP 08 is a game which offers lots of race-feeling and fun. Especially, the multiplayer-mode is very entertaining.
  3. Motorcycle-specific racing fantatics will lose themselves in MotoGP's depth of details, but most gamers will find the practice-requisite experience an oddly passionless grind. [Dec 2008, p.89]

    An uneven effort, MotoGP '08 is a decent game that should please most newbies and occasional riders but proves that Milestone has a ways to go before it fully grasps the handlebars.
  5. An inauspicious beginning for Capcom's new motorbike series that has little to offer even committed fans.
  6. This is the first time that the MotoGP licence has been in the hands of Capcom as publishers and Milestone as developers. The result is a solid game that doesn't really improve on last year's offering. By setting its sights on accessibility, MotoGP 08 seems to lose its focus on who it's for and ends up providing something for everyone but not everything for anyone.
  7. 50
    Die-hard fans of the real-life motorcycle racing championships will no doubt be interested in this game just for the personalities, prototype bikes and tracks. They’re all here, but that’s where the fun ends. Overall, this is a functional but unexciting trip to the races.
