Moto GP is tough to learn at first (picture motorcycles at full lean and 160+ mph careening into the grass/dirt and wiping out). Frankly, I wasn't a big racing game fan (I prefer FPS). However, after you learn the ins-and-outs of breaking, accelerating, downshifting, and leaning, the game is great fun. Add to that the competition of playing on Xbox Live against 15 others who are learning the game at the same time as you, and you have a formula that will keep you from getting a full nights sleep for months. For example, I've reached an 800 ranking out of about 10,000 players and I have a (very) full time job. Great game. In a word "addicting".

I played a demo version of this game in a store on XBOX and thought it was great. At the time I didn't have an XBOX so I picked up Moto GP 2 for PS2 thinking it would be the same just better graphics on XBOX....Boy was I wrong. This game is excellent. The PS2 version doesn't even come close. I've only had it for a week and I've already logged more hours on it than I have with the PS2 version and I've had it for over 3 months. BUY IT! You'll love it! If you don't believe me and you're lucky enough to have a PS2 and an XBOX, rent it for each system and judge them yourself.

This game surprised me.It's excellent.Just plain fun to play and the graphics are sweet.Alot of people whined about the controls but,these people more than likely never rode a bike.You don't steer a bike,you lean it.Accurate simulation,superb graphics and a blast if you like racing games.I rented it first and then headed up to the store shortly there after and snagged a copy. Good game!

It's about time that someone made a pretty good motorcycle GP game. i hope that sony and nintendo model there next moto GP game after the one made for the xbox.
first i had had Extreme GIII for the gamecube, then i bought moto GP2 for PS2, what mistakes i made. i think that a bike racing game has a lot to offer the gaming world. when moto GP first came out for xbox i was a little skeptical. i am glad that i decided to make the right choice and buy THQ's version for this system.
i said if this failed, then i would never ever buy another moto game again. i am a HUGE fan of racing games, and the bike racers were starting to disappoint me.
I SUGGEST...that you should buy this game. i really like it. i don't think anybody who buys this will be disappointed.
overall rating: 9.0/10.0 only because the turns are pretty wicked.

Wow, I'm really impressed with this game, MotoGP on the Xbox. Don't confuse this game with games having the same title but built for other platforms, the similarity ends at the subject matter. Top notch excitement that will take a long time to tire of. Like any video game it has many differences from the real thing but the designers made the similarities all the right ones. You really need to learn each track to hope to get around it at a decent speed, even then the intensity is intoxicating. Don't ride too fast if you don't know what you're doing or you'll be running wide right off the circuit. A keen sense of timing and cool head are required to run with the fast guys. Sit up high and catch the wind as you grab a fingerfull of front brake to slow down just in time to lean her over hard into that tight corner at the end of the straight and start to feed in the power through the exit. Now this is motorcycle racing! I'm particularly impressed with the computer controlled bikes and the realistic nuances they demonstrate.

I highly recommend this game for anyone interested in motorcycle racing games. Unlike several other games moto gp is very challenging and most likely you won't be able to pick it up and win right away and if you do there are three levels that will surely challenge you. It is very life like, for instance it has a front brake, a rear brake and a very real throttle. Most importantly the competitors actions are so real when you make just a small mistake they go racing bye, this game doesn't allow you to crash and still win the race on its most difficult level, of course unless you have mastered it. Good luck it is a great game!

If you've ever watched Moto GP on TV, then played this game, it's hard to tell the difference. The game is THAT realistic, but this can be a mixed blessing. If you're more into the arcade racing games than this might not be the game for you, but if you love intense motorcycle racing and simulation games, then you'll love this game.
I'm not a hardcore racing simulation fan, so that's why I gave the game four stars instead of five, but other than that, this game hasn't skipped a single detail in the Moto GP racing world. Worth a good look at!

Moto GP is an outstanding game. Even if you are not a huge motorcycle racing fan, which I am not, this game will be fun for you if you like racing sims.
The most realistic physics engine ever used for a Gran Prix motorcylce game (confirmed by a friend who has driven them). The training mode helps you move up the learning curve and build up your own character. You also unlock riders and other extras through winning races in two different modes: arcade and the GP circuit. You can even do tricks, which will actually help you in arcade mode.
Top-notch graphics. Could they be better? Sure, but for this experience they really don't need to be. Excellent detail and shading on the courses and the bikes themselves.
The only reason this is not a 9, or even a 10, is that I feel there could be more courses. Ten courses is not too shabby, though. The action in both single player and multiplayer is enough to bring you back for more... and more...
