  1. Moto GP 2006 gets a squeaky clean bill of health...and then some. The Xbox 360's first 2-wheeled racer is a godsend. [July 2006, p.69]

    Minor technical issues and some bare-bones single-player modes aside, this is without a doubt the best simulation racing game on the Xbox 360.

    While we would have like to see more personality of the GP circuit and a few more gamemodes than what we say in the previous installment of the franchise, MotoGP 06 remains a very impressive title on the Xbox 360.

    Moto GP 06 on Xbox 360 is no cheap date, but rest assured that you get what you pay for. This baby puts out like nobody's business.
  5. Some of the best graphics video gaming has ever seen. [Issue #11]
  6. This year’s MotoGP cements the foundations laid in titles gone by, without actually building anything of substance upon them.
  7. "Tourist Trophy" remains my pick for digital motorcycle racing, but if you own an Xbox 360 and have been craving some cycling action, MotoGP is where it's at.

    This game is great, if you like racing and want to be challenged... loosing the other two wheels is the best thing you can do for the speed demon in you. The learning curve is steep but once you get the hang of it. Expand

    Very nice motorcycle racing game with great graphics, textures, lighting and models. Only downside is that the decal maker is completely useless since you can only see the sides of the bike, but not the top and the decals look very low res and jagged compared to everything else in the game. And putting them on is very painfull since moving the stick one direction makes the decal go in a completely different direction, such as pushing up makes it go right. Obviously, these things handle different from cars so some people will think it's too hard and stay away, hurting the sales as with every other Mtoto GP game ever. But it's definately worth putting the time into and most will agree once they take a corner perfectly for the first time, and it's one of the best looking games on the 360 up to this point if that helps the rest of the jaded 360 crowd figure out whether to get it or not.

    Best-looking and best-playing motorcycle racer yet. Enough said.
