Downloaded the demo earlier tonight and it's complete garbage. I don't know even where to start, lol. I mainly only play racing games and sims at that so my opinion might be biased. I've been playing the motogp games on playstation ever since MotoGP 2. I have MotoGP 2,3,4 and 07 for ps2 and of course 08 for ps3. This one is shaping up to be the worst yet.
The only good thing would be the graphics I guess. They are not that bad, but on the bike view you have no hands or arms on the bike. They went through all the trouble with the speed effect and left off hands on the handlebars. The speed effect is pretty cool, but a little over done.
The bad list is a lot longer lol! The game is very arcade like with the music and guy calling stuff out. I hate all of the points and time increase/decrease bullsh*t. Makes it so need for speed/grid like. I could deal with that though if the physics were good. I race in advanced and sim mode in 08 so I put it in the "insane" mode (lol) for the demo. I literally had to try to crash and it took like 3 corners to do so! You can go full lean in the grass dragging elbow and just stand it back up and go back on track. You cannot spin the rear wheel on corner exit or even hard acceleration either. You can spin it a little taking off from a stop. To be the hardest riding mode and the rear doesn't even spin is absolutely ridiculous. The brakes are way to good. If you smash both brakes you stop in like 10 feet. Having to push another button to tuck is dumb also. It should be the left stick your using to control the rider if they are gonna have it at all. That leads me to the controls. I hate that they are not customizable. I use manual trans so shifting is way harder then it should be. I use x for accelerate and they are only 2 settings to use x for accel, and they both are setup badly. They way they have made it with the tuck just makes it to many buttons to press. I'm sure I could go on with some more stuff.
To say the least I won't be buying this game. I've had it pre ordered for a few months now, but I'm gonna see if I can just switch that money it to another game. All the guys I race 08 online with said all the same things and none of them are getting it either. I guess we should play 08 online as much as possible before the new one comes out and they take the servers down. SBK X looks to be pretty good and it should be coming out soon as well, but just not in the US. Gonna have to pick it up on ebay, but I'm sure it will be better than MotoGP 9/10.
