While this professional motorcycle racing game has a great deal of realism and depth, that same attention to detail can make this a rough ride for more casual bikers. In MotoGP 18, you engage in a series of professional motorcycle race events. In its engaging career mode, you create a driver, and then help your driver move up in the standings by winning real race events against some of the best bike riders in the world. All of the race events come with realistic physics, authentic handling, and the ability to modify multiple aspects of your bike, the race, and the game.

But while all of this probably sounds great to serious motorcycle racing game fans, the game's realism and authenticity can be a hindrance if you don't follow the sport closely or you aren't a hardcore motorcycle racing game fan. Sure, this does have the same kind of assists that you find in such auto racing games as Forza Motorsport 6, but while those games can feel almost arcade-like in their physics and handling, this bike game always feels like a realistic simulation. It also doesn't help that the game's music is cheesy, or that the type in the menus can be small to read if you sit at a reasonable distance from your TV. Still, if you're a big fan of professional motorcycle racing, or professional motorcycle racing games, you'll find that MotoGP 18 will satisfy your need for speed.
