The first thing I noticed about the game was the high quality of the graphics; this combined with the fact that the real riders, bikes and sponsors were included meant that it all felt realistic. I found the easy mode too simple so quickly increased the difficulty. I also turned off the rider assist so that I was in complete control of the brakes, acceleration and rider – you can do your own gear changes too. As your rider races round the track, the track surface changes and you can feel the difference in traction which is cool. I played the career mode, where you race for a team – you start as a rookie and work your way up to a professional. There are unlockable elements throughout the game including different helmets and images of riders. There’s a mock social media element too meaning that you have to attract fans for extra challenges which adds interest. I would have liked a commentator similar to other sports games to add another level to the game but overall it was good fun. The game is single player only on offline mode but you can have multiple players online. The game, developed by Milestone Italian studios, is available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360 as well as Microsoft and Windows PC systems.
