    I was a huge fan of the 1st Moto GP game as the controls were fluid, and the bike responded in a similar manner to a real bike. The second game was very similar to the first, but better. Moto GP 3 sucks harsh. Its more arcade style then PGR series, and it looks worse than the 2nd version. The engine sound effects are horribly off again, but rather than getting higher pitched with every I was a huge fan of the 1st Moto GP game as the controls were fluid, and the bike responded in a similar manner to a real bike. The second game was very similar to the first, but better. Moto GP 3 sucks harsh. Its more arcade style then PGR series, and it looks worse than the 2nd version. The engine sound effects are horribly off again, but rather than getting higher pitched with every gear, the pitch drops. How come THQ / Climax do not realize that the sound an engine makes has nothing to do with the bike's speed, but rather with RPM? And whats with the "clutch" not being engaged until 7000 RPM? this should only happen from a standing start, but not from a roll on. Cornering is lame in this game as well.....I should not be able to slam the breaks on in mid corner. In real life, the bike would stand right up, and go straight. Or it would low-side. I can say so much more about the short-comings of this game, but it is truly a waste of time. Im trading this in before I even log on an hour. My 05 R1 is waiting for me in the garage... Expand

    A classy, challenging and engrossing game, providing worthy competition for the best racers that Xbox has to offer.
  2. THQ's flagship motorcycle racer is back, with even more ultra-realistic racing action, challenging AI and extremely fast tracks.
  3. It ceases to become an essential annual purchase.
