MotoGP 06 £4.23 @ Amazon [Xbox 360 Game]

Motorbike enthusiasts rev your engines, as Amazon is offering MotoGP 06 for just £4.23, an excellent price for fans, or for customers seeking to fill their basket!

Spun around a price-comparison, Amazon’s offer for MotoGP lapped the competition as the cheapest around, with a two-pound saving! MotoGP 06 was among the first of the next-generation vehicle racers, and it impressed critics enough to earn an 80/100 on MetaCritic, with 1UP praising it as “great to look at and fun to play”.

In MotoGP 06, budding bikers compete in Grand Prix motorcycle racing events, with the 2006 roster of riders, bikes and tracks, along with the previous years. A new season mode has been implemented, where you compete in a variety of challenges, earning points, rep and currency to upgrade and purchase new equipment and bikes. The developers updated the engine to next-generation standards, especially the lighting, so the sun-baked asphalt and gleaming metal appear as realistic as possible.

In the previous MotoGP games, up to 16 racers could compete online. Now, however, 20 bikers with frothing engines and revving gears can race around the track, zipping in between rivals, skidding around abrupt corners and bends, and gunning it towards the finish line.

It's MotoGP not Motocross...although it's cheap I think it's worth a couple of quid more to get a more recent motorbike game, this feels like a deal for the sake of it. MotoGP 06 was a pretty nasty looking game at the time thanks to noticeable tearing and obvious corner cutting in the models, the chain/sprockets aren't even animated and riders can ride a corner with the bike flat to the ground while standing straight up on the bike(!)

While the many of the riders in the game are still going now, most of them have changed colour/team entirely - Rossi is still in bright yellow in this game. As would be expected online racing is dead for an old game, when released that was one of the stronger elements as with the previous games.
