  1. Moto GP 09/10 isn't the ultimate motorbike-racing real driving experience and it's probably a disappointing game for fans, but it still has three important powers: speed feeling, a complete roster of game modes and accessibility for newcomers.
  2. If you’re the patient type, MotoGP has a lot to offer, especially if you like the idea of hurtling down a straightaway at insane speeds in a two-wheeled deathmobile from the comfort of your couch. Just be prepared to grind to see your work bear fruit and get used to the idea of a pretty straightforward approach.
  3. That said, MotoGP 09/10 is a solid game, it plays well, it looks good and has everything contained in the one package that any fans of motorcycle racing will enjoy.
  4. The great ideas present in MotoGP are a good foundation. However, the failure to develop them further is what keeps this game from greatness.
  5. MotoGP 09/10 is a good example of a fun game with a few pronounced rough edges. These shortcomings shouldn’t put you off.

    Some fine additions to the series - shame it doesn't offer the ultimate racing experience, too. [May 2010, p.80]
  7. SBK hasn’t found the rival we were all expecting to see. Yet Moto GP 09/10 is still a good raging game and quite good fun to play as well. If you are a huge fun of this genre, and cannot wait until the next SBK, then this is your ride!
  8. MotoGP 09/10 is a solid, enjoyable racer that manages to capture the feel of charging about a track on a Superbike without being inaccessible to newcomers to the series.
  9. MotoGP runs fluently, sound greats, offers many gameplay options and provides downloadable content for the new year. There‘s still a few things to do, but the main thing is: This game makes fun.
  10. While there are still some niggling bugs and tweaks needed to speed up a terrible menu system and hopefully correct the audio, the game is a solid release that has enough strong features to make it a worthy purchase.
  11. MotoGP 09/10 is way more interesting than its predecessors. But even an interesting career mode and a good sense of speed can’t help the fact that some players might van the driving to be a bit unrealistic and the online multiplayer is sort off lacking.
  12. All in all, a refreshing return to form for the premier moto racing title in videogames today.

    This year's MotoGP is a nice mixture of arcade and simulation. The game has some minor flaws, but the big picture is in working order. The start may be a bit hard, but once the game opens up, you really learn to appreciate it's differences from the horde of four-tire racers. [Apr 2010]

    Capcom tries it again with better results, but there is still plenty of room for improvement.
  15. The best MotoGP for years, thanks to a great Career mode. Just a pity about the handling.

    It is near impossible to fault MotoGP based on its merits as it does nearly everything right for fans of the sport.

The single player game is split into three modes, arcade, time trials and career. I didn't put a lot of time into arcade or time trials, but from the little i did try they're based along the following idea:- Arcade is a case or making it to the next checkpoint for more time, earning time for slipstreaming, overtakes, and such things. Time trials are like you'd imagine; you, one bike and one track, to go as fast as you can. However, career mode is where the meat of the single player experience will be for most people. For this you start in the 125cc class on a pretty slow bike for a few races until you gain enough reputation to hire engineers who research parts to make your bike go faster or handle better etc. This is paid for by fictitious sponsors (no official sponsors) who are attracted by the press officers that you hire. The game continues and your bike gets continually better as the season continues. At the end of the season, if you do well enough, then you can upgrade to the 250cc season, and go through the process of upgrading your bike again, and then once more for the GP bikes. It's quite a fun process to run through once, but unfortunately there are enough flaws in the experience that may or may not stop you form continuing to enjoy the single player experience :- The practice and qualifying sessions have the opponent riders times set to a time that is ludicrously slow. Their times appear to be predetermined even before you star the qualifying session, and it's not unknown to go 10 or even 15 seconds faster in a lap than the opponents. The suspension of belief in the game is totally undermined by the fact that the AI riders appear to be going 5-10 seconds a lap faster than you! and that you don't know how well your session is going until you end the session, and even then you won't know your individual lap times, never mind sector times. A big issue with the game currently is that all the offline race modes are limited to 3 laps, no more, no less. this means that in the race itself, you get no real opportunity to enjoy racing for the full distance, gaining slowly on the leader to make that clean pass on the final lap Full Review »

    Alors que le Moto GP 08 était confié aux bonnes oeuvres de Milestone, le 09/10 finit dans les paluches maladroites de Monumental Games. Ce quiAlors que le Moto GP 08 était confié aux bonnes oeuvres de Milestone, le 09/10 finit dans les paluches maladroites de Monumental Games. Ce qui frappe (et c'est un choc) initialement concerne toute la partie graphique en sensible retrait. J'ai cru un instant que ma télé déconnait : ce filtre jaunâtre, ces graphismes délavés et ce flou permanent, ces textures très compressées et ces effets horribles sous la pluie donnent envie de se barrer en courant. Cela dit, c'est toujours fluide heureusement.

    Autre motif de doléances, le réalisme a pris un sérieux coup dans l'aile et on se retrouve à son insu avec un jeu nettement orienté arcade. Si ce n'était que ça, rien de rédhibitoire à dire vrai. La maniabilité lamentable l'est définitivement par contre : voir une 125 tourner comme une Goldwing, ça fait bizarre... c'est le même refrain pour les 250 et 800 de toute façon ! une imprécision permanente qui use les nerfs.

    L'IA retorse toujours sur votre cul qui vous rattrape systématiquement (on se croirait dans Ridge Racer) et la gestion de l'aspiration et de l'attaque "le nez dans le guidon" est caricaturale. La carrière n'est pas mal faite mais les bruits de moteur (corrects) ne varient pas selon les bécanes. Un mauvais cru que cette mouture 09/10.

    Nice to see MotoGP getting back on track, for the last few years the series has grown stale and moved away from its routes with extreme modes Nice to see MotoGP getting back on track, for the last few years the series has grown stale and moved away from its routes with extreme modes and powersliding more akin to mario kart. A vast improvement and a good starting block to build from for motogp11. Also special mention to the career mode which is the best of it kind for this genre in a long time. Full Review »
