Thanks to the power of today's consoles, this game looks very sharp for a title that is heavily based in reality. Even while screaming down the track at speeds well over 100mph, the game looks fantastic. The sound on the other hand is very bare bones, with music only noticeable during menus and not during race time – that's reserved purely for the sounds of speed. Also fun is that you can customize your racer and gear.

The game's biggest downfall is the complex controls. Things like cornering and driving straight takes patience and talent -- you have to learn to judge how much you can move the bike. Even braking takes great judgment to get the correct decrease in momentum. This game can be frustrating even for seasoned gamers.
