Premier class motorcycle racing game
MotoGP™20, the newest title in the popular racing franchise MotoGP™. This game brings back the high-speed, thrilling races with even more realistic graphics, improved gameplay, and a complete managerial career mode. Not only that, but it will also take you to a new, ice-covered track in Finland. Like its predecessors, MotoGP™20 offers a rewarding and genuinely playable experience. However, bike novices will struggle in this very realistic racing simulator.
A mix of good and bad
At its core, the structure of MotoGP™20 remains familiar and very much true-to-life. Players will have a single-player career mode that will allow them to play through the package to become the MotoGP World Champion. In the new career mode, you will have a complete entourage ready to support you on your path to becoming the best racer. You will have the option to join a 2020 season team and race with the official riders. Or you can become a member of a brand new team and make a name for yourself. The game also comes with dedicated servers that let you challenge your friends online. With this, you can race with them in different modes. You can create a customizable lobby or use one of the pre-provided ones. More, you can also create a private lobby just for you and your pals.
The MotoGP™20 also boasts impeccable graphics. Even the 3D models of the riders and the face scans of the team managers are very realistic that you will feel more immersed in the MotoGP™ world. As noted, the game utilizes a deep Forza Horizon 4-style customization suite of five different graphics editor that lets you customize your rider and bike. You can combine sponsors, colors, and materials for your bike so you can ride in style.
However, while the game seemed promising, some drawbacks require your consideration. As noted, beginners will have a hard time winning races right away. More than the lack of training, the braking feels like a death sentence. AI competitors are also incredibly aggressive and reckless. Luckily, the game has a Forza-esque rewind feature, which reverts you to a point far back. With this, you can dig yourself out of the pinch. Furthermore, the excellent graphics will have to take a step back if you wish to play at a higher frame rate. The visuals will take a hit and starts to look rough when the frame rate priority is on.
The finish line
MotoGP™20 is far from perfect. The game has an uneven career, seemingly suicidal AI, and lacks tutorial. More, its multiplayer mode does not have matchmaking or a larger league structure. However, while it has some rough edges, it does a lot of things very well. It plays well and will provide you with hours of enjoyment. All in all, despite its issues, the game has captured the daunting difficulty of bike racing and translated it to the virtual world admirably.
