The PS2 may be considered "last gen," but don't put it away just yet-there's still great gaming life left in it and with Capcom's MotoGP '07, gamers have another great reason to plug in their controllers. MotoGP '07 is an officially licensed title so it showcases the riders, their bikes, teams and tracks from the '07 racing season. This is a full-on racing experience and gamers of all skill levels will be able to take part in the action. For those who are new to racing or aren't used to racing motorcycles, it makes sense to take advantage of the riding aids provided, like adjusting the skill levels of other AI riders competing in the race. This way gamers can be assured of getting a fair race and won't come away disappointed or bored from being constantly beaten by perfect AI drivers. For gamers with sweet skills, try to up the challenge by controlling the rider's position on the bike, and the front and rear brakes for the ultimate control around tight turns and for slick maneuvers.
MotoGP '07 is a nice, deep racing game with over 100 trials to take part in, and each challenge is available at the three different skill levels offered. Game modes offer more than just the standard racing mode with Championship, Time Attack, Challenges, Multiplayer and Quick Race options to keep the game fresh and fun. For that added bit of realism, different weather conditions also challenge racers, plus bikes can go over 200 mph which is always a great adrenaline rush as other racers get passed-or gamers crash, whichever comes first. Get out the PS2 and make room for MotoGP 07, a nice solid racer that is worth the time to check out.
