    The latest in the MotoGP series of games is probably the greatest too. MotoGP 21 looks great, sounds right, and when the gameplay and tactics click and you finally start to make progress through the ranks, it’s a great feeling.

    When all is said and done, Nier Replicant ver.1.22474487139… brings a cult classic to a new generation of gamers. If you love deep emotional, character-driven stories that will make you both laugh and cry, even if some of the gameplay suffers a bit, this game is a must-play.

    After its success with MotoGP 20, many have a lot of expectations about the new game of this championship. MotoGP 21 receives most of the game modes and options of the last game, but the physics makes this game much better and realistic. The racing experience feels renewed, and it could be the most important aspect of this game. We could say this because the graphics don't improve as much as could be expected for next-gen hardware. We can see some work in textures or global illumination, but most things are the same. It could be enough, thanks to the racing experience, but not for a stand-alone next-gen version. Maybe for MotoGP 22 if Milestone wants to work.

    MotoGP 21 brings obvious improvements to the gameplay and the driving feel, with a realization especially appreciable on the new generation of consoles. Unfortunately, however, it suffers the annualized production, matching the great realism and the excellent driving feeling with several flaws and too strong similarities with the previous episode in the series.

    With realism being the focus of MotoGP 21, the enjoyment here comes from the mastery of racing at high speeds. Although unless you’re a returning player to the series or a natural on the virtual bike, you won’t be treated kindly by the game’s difficulty. New players could comfortably get away with trying MotoGP 20 instead as a way of easing themselves into the series with a smaller entry fee. Returning players, conversely, will no doubt feel at home with an updated game featuring stunningly detailed environments and racing options. As for me? The plethora of crashes I experienced in-game may now put me off real-world motorbikes altogether.

    Disappointing ! Milestone was off to a good start with its pretty MotoGP 20, full of promise with finally a career mode worthy of the name. But instead of polishing it, the Italian studio has put the diamond in the next-gen's garage this season. MotoGP 21 is stagnating in the gameplay, the fault of the sets and animations still unchanged and quite dull, an AI that falls back into its faults causing too many accidents and the absence of a split screen mode. Worse, the title regresses in content, puts the historical mode to oblivion and brings no notable novelty to the career. Even the shimmering visual identity of MGP20 has given way to a dreary ersatz menu, enough to assure us of one thing: the next installment in the series will be expected around the corner.
