    The Italians at Milestone prove again that "two wheeled" games are their forte. MotoGP 13 is the most realistic and demanding motorcycle game of the past decade and a must-buy for MotoGP enthusiasts.

    A game that every motorcycling lover should at least try; some small problems can somewhat undermine part of the gameplay experience, but the feelings it transmits while racing are among the best in gaming. If you love motorbike races and you're willing to forgive some frame-rate drops and other small graphical problems, you should consider it.

    This is a game that puts the racing experience front and center. The physics model of the pros at Milestone is a piece of art that has only matured over the years. The sensation of speed might not be there yet and the console versions' 30 FPS are an issue, but the handling of the bikes is almost perfect.

    The Italian Milestone, starting from a lower budget compared to the giants of the industry, shows ​​a considerable productive effort, clearly infusing all energy in a well built video game.

    Look beyond the tattered edges, though, and there's enough to ensure that the monopoly on two-wheel racing Milestone now enjoys doesn't mean this wins out by default. MotoGP 13's a lean, scrappy racer that's not just the best motorbike game around at the moment - it's one of the best pure motorsport experiences on console for years.

    It's certainly not a vision of beauty, but the developer's relentless passion for the sport comes across in every turn. [Sept 2013, p.77]

    Despite the fact not everything is perfect about the game, MotoGP 13 turns out to be very realistic at some points. The fans will eat it up and new players will have a good challenge.

    A fine driving simulation game based on the MotoGP competition: varied options and game modes, satisfying driving experience and standard graphics.

    MotoGP 13 doesn't disappoint in terms of gameplay and depth, since it comes with a lot of game modes, but it does disappoint in terms of graphics.

    The MotoGP franchise is back on track with 13. After years of disaster after disaster we finally have an installment of which the base works greatly. There’s enough to do in the career mode and the racing sensation is quite strong. There are technical imperfections that’ll drag you out of the experience, along with a meager appearance.

    MotoGP 13 is a good simulation ruined by poor graphics and few issues with the overall rhythm of its Career mode. Milestone has done a good job in recreating the vehicles' physics but the developers should try to improve their techniques.

    Milestone brings back the real MOTO GP experience, unfortunately with many technical issues.

    The adrenaline and speed of MotoGP return this year with this Milestone production. Marc Márquez and other drivers get a good helmet, but they have some injuries.

    MotoGP 13 is a fast and light racer that’ll please plenty of purists with its solid take on the sport. Newcomers on the other hand, might be left out in last place once the race has finished.

    Milestone brings back the real MotoGP experience, unfortunately with many technical issues (graphics engine limps and suffers in the most hectic situations). Once again, it's a starting point to create, someday, the perfect hybrid between MotoGP 08 and GP500, but it's not the game that many fans have been waiting from Milestone.

    Crappy graphics, but surprisingly enough it's a hardcore simulator game of the world fastest motorbikes. This title will definitely please those steering handlebars fans. The rest of gaming population will most likely get frightened by the game's requirements. [Issue#232]

    It could be said that MotoGP 13 feels like a cheap downloadable game wrapped in the glittery shell of licensing to sell as AAA, which is all too often the case in gaming, and in some ways this is accurate. However the extreme attention to detail and the strangely paced yet enjoyable career mode up this game above some of the more pedestrian licensed games in the world. It is a game clearly made for motorcycle enthusiasts and for these people it just about does the job.

    The on-track action can be exhilarating, but the career is too functional to impress. MotoGP 13 goes just as far as it has to, but never becomes truly essential.

    ages ago there was a game called tourist trophy ( I think ) which I believe captured the riding experience very well. unfortunately there wasages ago there was a game called tourist trophy ( I think ) which I believe captured the riding experience very well. unfortunately there was no continuation of this game. frustrated for years looking for something as good, I have tried some previous motogp games but they were lacking.....

    this one has some glitches with graphics, and in tight corners where there are lots of AI riders can be a little stunted with the picture, but....

    spend time doing the full weekend in career mode, and use the practice and engineer to fine tune your machine. wow, feels awesome! can really zone in and loose yourself in the ride.

    not perfect but feels goooood!
