  1. Summation: Buy if you are a fan, rent and be cautious otherwise.
  2. MotoGP 08 delivers a sub-par experience in every single aspect: graphics are shallow, controls are dull and unresponsive, and the gameplay is kinda boring. Still, it's one of the few "serious" racing games on Wii, but that's hardly gonna be a selling point.
  3. 50
    Overall, this is a functional but unexciting trip to the races. Also, it isn't exactly easy on the eyes.
  4. The gimmick of tilting the Wii Remote like handlebars is as engaging as this game gets. [Apr 2009, p.87]
  5. Although there are plenty of modes, the poor controls hamper any play value this title might have had.
  6. MotoGP is one of the most popular titles in the driving panorama, however this Wii version hasn't been as lucky as the ones in PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This is a lackluster product which could have hit the billboards.
  7. MotoGP certainly isn’t going to give Mario Kart Wii a run for its money and it’d be a real shame if Capcom actually made a profit off of this.
