    SBK 22 does its job without excelling in anything and it feels like MotoGP 22 with just the SBK bikes a bit more than it should.

    Without infamy, without praise, Milestone's return to the world of Superbike. We expected something more, it is useless to deny it: the Milanese team has limited itself to doing what is strictly necessary. SBK 22 is an overall interesting simulation, limited in content (the other categories are trivially lacking) and sold at a budget price. In any case, we recommend the game to fans of Bautista and Rea.

    If you find MotoGP 21 tough, you ain’t seen nothing yet. To tie things up, SBK 2022 is a tougher and less content-rich game than MotoGP 22. Unless you are a die-hard fan of super bike racing, MotoGP 22 is the better choice for casual players.

    A timid recovery of this official license, which will only benefit from the bases of motorcycle games on asphalt offered by the Italian studio of Milestone.

    SBK 22 has a solid core for fans of the sport who want to sink time and master their bike, but it’s not a game you’re going to want to go into blindly.

    Thoughts-
    SBK 22 is an interesting return for a franchise that’s been gone for so many years, as it seems to combine the gameplay from Milestone’s other motorcycle racing games with the simulation focus and structure of other racers on the market, specifically the F1 series. Unfortunately, this all puts SBK 22 in an odd, underbaked place. Its lack of content outside of the so-so career mode means that there isn’t much content to see. Its gameplay is highly rewarding at very specific moments of success, but the time to get there can be frustratingly long and slow. It’s a beautiful game and one that gets that much more fun when you’re that much better, but for anyone who isn’t a superfan of the sport, there are other games on the market that might cater better to your tastes without the same learning curve and tedium. It’s not a bad game by any stretch, but its lack of deep content and steep learning curve make it difficult to recommend to the casual racing fan.
