| MotoGP 4 Review PlayStation 2 |
For anyone who doesn’t know about MotoGP, it is the number one motorbike series in the world. Forget world superbikes, MotoGP is where it is. If you have ever heard the name Valentino Rossi mentioned, he is the greatest man to ever race a motor bike that ever lived, and he is still at the top of his game, beating all the competition on what many people regard as the inferior bike the Yamaha.
Namco have released MotoGP games in the past, the last one being MotoGP 3 which took the physics of motorbikes to a new level. Weight could be shifted forward, backwards and to the left and right. This time around Namco have polished the game, improved graphics, physics and sound have all been improved.
Firstly the physics update has made the game even more playable and even more realistic and fans of the real world series will really appreciate the difference. The addition of 125 and 250 classes has also given the game a longer lasting appeal. This isn’t just because there are more bikes in the game, all of the game play changes when you race a 125, the name of the game is keeping up momentum, where as the MotoGP class is all about late breaking and getting on the gas as soon as possible without causing the bike to throw you over the handle bars.
