  1. In fact, it's the most exciting superbike racing we've played for a while. [Dec 2008, p.83]
  2. 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.
  3. The game’s mechanics have been streamlined to help bring in new players, but the overall feel of the game and low-key presentation is still one that caters to the hardcore fans of the series and no one else. Still, the deep career mode will keep fans busy for a while and should be worth a look for them.
  4. 67
    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. Overall Capcom has done a great job with MotoGP 08 and while some diehards of the series may grumble a bit at the changing of the guard from Climax and THQ to Capcom.
  6. An inauspicious beginning for Capcom's new motorbike series that has little to offer even committed fans.
  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.
