MotoGP 07 Hands on

IGN got some hands-on time with MotoGP '07 and came back with some intriguing details. First off, all of the licensed GP tracks you know and love will be making a triumphant return this September. The face lift to the graphics are also worthing noting, as well as adding tweaks to the handling to make the game a little more accessible, while still maintaining its simulation roots. The Extreme mode is also back, and apparently at least some of the tracks from last year will be playable again. Customization will be more in depth, to help make your bike yours. But, it won't necessarily be yours forever, as you can take a page out of Juiced 2's book and race for pink slips on your crotch rocket. More details available by clicking the "Read" link. With the swarm of MotoGP news, can September come soon enough? Or should we wake you when it's over?

1. To be honest I thought '06 sucked. I'm assuming this will too.

5. No, it looks MORE like a skating rink. With only two wheels for vertical stabilition he'd better be careful before he's horizontal.

6. THQ, please fix the sluggish frame rate.

Thou shall impart a sense of speed.

7. most useless option (FPS view) needs to be changed where the Camera's axis points shift off the vertical bike's axis to between the waist & chest where it moves left or right of bike axis according to the turn of the bike.

I mean, who in the world rides stiff like that? the 3d models on the bikes don't in the game, why does the camera? I like the game but have always found the FPS view a waste.

another problem with sports games is the fact that they should think bout lowering prices if it's an annual title or give us paid DL updates the following year & make the title releases every other year.
