Video Review


'MotoGP 15' is downright gorgeous for the most part. Landscapes pop with excellent colors. Crashes are handled with grace and realism. Close-ups of racing gear and machines border on the photo realistic. Character models, however, possess an unhealthy dose of the uncanny valley. Dead eyes, ahoy! Furthermore, Blu-ray esque quality real world footage introduces every locale. As if you’re watching a touristic video guide.

Audio Review


The game's most disappointing aspect (well, apart from the amount of "no fun" to be had). Nothing remarkable about the sound design. Sure, it sounds exactly like a real motorcycle race on TV, but it all comes down to 'vroom' in the end. Just listen to some quality tunes on your sound system while playing this game. I know I did.

Final Thoughts

Compared to the plug and play nature of the still awesome 'Excitebike', 'MotoGP 15' presents itself as one of those extremely detailed simulation titles that successfully attempts to suck the fun out of the genre. Don't get me wrong: 'MotoGP 2015' is mightily impressive, a virtual tour de force and a marvel to, well, marvel at. It's just so realistic and so real, that it ends up becoming soulless, mechanically, technologic and boring. After all, if you want this kind of realism, why don't you just pick up real-life motorcycle racing yourself?
