    I've been waiting for this game to come out for a while. After reading the reveiws I was reluctant to purchase. Decided to take the plunge and was very surprised with the game. I thought the controls would be frustrating but found after a short time that they work well. Being abel to customise your set up for different tracks and conditions was fun.

Decided to take the plunge and was very surprised with the game. I thought the controls would be frustrating but found after a short time that they work well. Being abel to customise your set up for different tracks and conditions was fun. Have only been racing in the 125 class at this stage but have struggled to put the game away. Every one is bagging the graphics although not the best they are far from bad. I think the harsh ratings must be from serious gamers as for someone that just has a WII this is a very enjoyable game and keeps me entertained for hours. I hope other people aren't put off by the negative ratings and don't buy this game as i would have been dissappointed if i found out months later what a good game this is. Sure they could have done a few things better but what game is perfect. Looking forward to the next version of Moto gp. good luck al and enjoy your games. Expand

    The gimmick of tilting the Wii Remote like handlebars is as engaging as this game gets. [Apr 2009, p.87]

    Overall, this is a functional but unexciting trip to the races. Also, it isn't exactly easy on the eyes.
  3. Although there are plenty of modes, the poor controls hamper any play value this title might have had.
