Today we are taking a little look at MotoGP 15 which is a very interesting game in the series. The reason I say this is that it was the last game to be released for the PS3 and 360, before they would just focus on the PS4 and Xbox One. I have to say that if you do not like MotoGP the sport in general, you have come to the wrong place. Those that do like this kind of racing action will find this to be a pretty solid sim.
Starting From The Bottom
The best thing that MotoGP 15 offered me was the ability to create my own racing team from scratch. Granted, other games have done this, but this was a first for this franchise. You need to make your way through the various classes, earning new sponsors as you go so you can move up to the next level and prove your team is worthy of being on the grand stage. I loved the progression this mode had and it is the mode I would recommend that you jump into at first.
That Real Authenticity
The game features a very respectable 18 different tracks as well as a ton of different riders and bikes. The game is based on the 2014 – 2015 seasons and from what I can tell it is very authentic with its riders and teams. I am sure those that are heavily into this sport will get a real kick out of the attention to detail here.
Keeping You On The Tarmac
As well as the mode I already mentioned, MotoGP 15 does offer you a really cool mode where you get to relive some of the big events from the 2014 season. If you follow the sport, this mode is sure to get you pretty pumped up. You also have your basic races, time trials, and so on too. There was also an online mode where you could compete to see who could get the fastest laps, but as far as I am aware, that is no longer available.
Changing The Channel
As MotoGP 15 is taking a sim approach to the sport, they have done a great job in giving us some TV-style presentation. The game is not going to blow you away with the way that it looks or anything like that, but I do feel they have done a good job in making things seem as real as possible. There as you would expect is a bit of a leap from the PS3 to the PS4 version of the game, but both I think look decent enough. The game also has some great sound effects that feel just like the real thing and it has a pretty decent soundtrack too.
I have to say that MotoGP 15 is a bit of a niche product. For those that are into this sport, this game will probably offer all you would want in a MotoGP game. Those who are not into this or just have a passing interest may find that the realistic sim approach may not be something they find all that fun.
- I thought the mode where you create your own team was fun
- You can recreate some of the big moments from the 2014 season
- The game is fully licensed
- The AI puts up one hell of a challenge
- This is not for the casual fan
- I do feel that later MotoGP games are better
