THQ comes back into the motorbike racing simulation games with MotoGP 06. Available for PC and Xbox360, This series of games is well-known for finding a great balance between arcade racing games and the simulation game every racing sports fan loves. The speed sensation is matched by the adrenaline in the races, and even though it’s not fully a simulation game, it serves its purpose as the official game.

Sport games franchises usually have the issue of having little room for improvement due to the strict schedule of new titles. Especially since they need to release a new title every single year to keep up with the latest updates in the sports, such as new racers, the new tournaments, and even slight changes in their bikes and rules. But does MotoGP 06 have what it takes to live longer in our memories than any of its predecessors? Is it special? Well, let's talk about it.

About the game

This is the official game of the sport, and as such it has the license to use every circuit, every track, all the teams, and all the racers, perfectly and realistically inserted in the game. This means it also has all the tournaments and since it is updated yearly, it has all the real-life events planned on the game.

MotoGP 06 is pretty similar to the previous game, and after all, it was pretty hard to improve on what was already there. There are different game modes, in the single-player, there's the racing mode, and you can create your own team, even designing the uniforms and everything related.

There are challenges, races, tournaments, and two full seasons you can play. After you complete a GP season, the Extreme mode is unlocked. This game mode was already present in the previous game. This model has three divisions 600cc, 1000cc, and 1200cc. You start by the lowest category and go up by winning races and earning money for upgrades and enter the next category.

There’s also the online multiplayer and the quick race mode, these modes are perfect for the replay value. With these, you don’t have to just play the seasons or unlock the different categories, but also just have some fun.

The next step?

It was pretty hard to upgrade what we already had in the previous title, the visuals and the gameplay were incredible already. The game on the Xbox was one of the best-looking racing games of the moment, but thanks to the much more powerful hardware of the Xbox 360, the game looks even better. And this is even more incredible when you compare it to the classic motorbike games like Excitebike 64, there's a huge leap in the visuals and mechanics.

7.5

This title doesn't suggest a huge upgrade over the previous game. Aside from clearly looking much better and the online mode, the game is still at its core the same concept. The online mode and the multiplayer are really great, and the arcade element of the game is still excellent. If you're a motorbike fan, this is a must-have for you.

Pros:

  • Great visuals
  • Great controls
  • Fun game modes
  • A lot of content

Cons:

  • Not much new
  • Needs innovation
  • Controls could be better

Game Reviews

MotoGP 06 hits the 360 with very few upgrades over last year's Xbox version, and none involve evolving the core gameplay. Basically, you get a handful of new tracks and riders, as well as redone audio and visuals upgraded to the 360's delicious HD standards.

Bottom line:

Even the graphical upgrade isn't that impressive, though, considering how good MotoGP already looked.
