  1. Online or off, MotoGP is a very slick racing experience, and its deceptively simplistic gameplay hides a very effective control system and devastatingly addictive racing.
  2. Technically a good game, but what prevents it from being a great one is its lack of legs. The sense of accomplishment one gets from conquering season after season loses a bit of its shine when confronted with the same eight tracks and the same stiff AI, creating a lack of real replay value if there isn’t a stable of friends to multi with.

    The Season mode is as basic as it gets, and there isn't much besides that. The riding mechanics are fantastic, however, and that's what makes the game a nice pickup for motorcycle racing fans.
  4. Moto GP is rather desirable for anyone that loves their simulated bike racers and the PSP once again proves that it's a decent handheld for racing fans.
  5. 65
    Moto GP is a good racer for anyone who wants motorcylces on the go and is willing to work past the controls.
  6. Like most PSP games, Moto GP is pretty much the same as the Playstation 2 version, just smaller. While the translation is very well done, there’s nothing interesting and worthwhile unless you really need it in a portable format.
  7. A bitter disappointment. It's a soulless, miserable outing that manages to make zooming around on crotch-rockets dull and frustrating.

    Don't let the 8 rating I gave it fool you. I love this game. I love motorcycles and try not to miss a real motogp race on tv and Don't let the 8 rating I gave it fool you. I love this game. I love motorcycles and try not to miss a real motogp race on tv and that's the cool thing with this game. It uses the real tracks that the real riders use. Game play is fun, you dont have total control over the bikes and riders like on the xbox or playstation but if you like racing games and have a PSP, you need this one. Collapse

    Only 8 of the tracks from the Moto GP season is a real cop-out. Especially when some of the best tracks were left out.
