While this motorcycle racing series' realism has always made it tough, improvements to this year's model have made it -- for better or worse -- even more difficult, yet enjoyable, for racing fans. In MotoGP 19, you once again engage in a series of motorcycle races, be it on your own in one of the two career modes (regular and pro) or in one-off race events, or against other people online. The game, as always, comes with the realistic handling, controls, and physics you'd expect from a racing simulation, and that's even when you turn on the optional assists for braking and steering. It also has tons of options when it comes to customizing your bike, the races, and the way your career progresses.

As for what this new edition adds, well, the artificial intelligence of your computer-controlled competition has been improved, making races even tougher. Not by a lot, mind you, but enough so that you'll notice how rival racers don't bump into each other as much as they did last year. It also adds electric bikes that, of course, feel as different here as they do in real life. But while there's a lot to this game, navigating it can be frustrating. For starters, the game can take a noticeably long time to load, and there are so many options when it comes to the races and bike customization that just getting to a race, even in the "Quick Modes," is needlessly complicated. But if you're looking for something that will make you feel like you're really riding a motorcycle in a real race, MotoGP 19 will more than satisfy your need for speed.
