They nailed all the details in this game. It looks, sounds And performs like the real bike. LOVE THIS GAME!
The only thing I read about that I thought I wouldn't like was that there isn't much you can do as far as upgrades or customization, is that true?
Also how do the bikes/cars handle? Is it super Arcade-ey? The graphics and details on the bikes are insane from the video's i've watched.
Yeah, there are no upgrades or customizing, besides the paint layouts/color, though quite honestly that doesn't bother me at all, and I'm all about that stuff. I think the entire game is so good, with insane attention to detail that you don't really need all the customization options. Take for instance: full control of the weather/time, tracks and roads across the planet, cars and bikes from All over, from Europe to Japan and USA (something that wasn't true when it first dropped), every view you could want, including dash and inside cockpit (or helmet with the bikes- it's INTENSE), full replays where you control everything, a photo mode available any time, easy navigation of the user interface, full controls mapping (though for people that like to shift manually (in cars) with the right stick Up or Down, that is not an option unfortunately. Though I've gotten used to the Square/Triangle shift pattern rather easily), a top notch Multiplayer system, and great music too (mostly electronic, though they could expand the library some). With all that said, the graphics and sound couldn't be better in my opinion. It's honestly the best car game I've played, and I've had almost all of them, barring Forza, since no Xbox One.
To answer your question about the handling: I think it's perfect. It's much more simulation than arcade, adding enough of a learning curve to feel like you're really there, figuring out each vehicle as you drive it. The bikes too, though it's not on par with Moto GP, which is a good thing in my opinion, because I remmeber the learning curve being so steep in that game that I didn't even really enjoy it. The Twins feel very different from the In Lines as expected, and of course sound much different. I was amazed at how well they nailed little details, like the RPM power curve in the 10R, sort of laggy until spiking pretty hard around 6-7k, amongst many other things I noticed.
Anyway, it's definitely worth checking out man. It should still be around $15-20 (i would HIGHLY recommend, if that's the case, that you buy the $20 version though. Tons of extra maps and cars right off the bat).
Anyway, if you do, let me know how you like it!
