I went to get the original SBK, but this SBK X seemed much improved. The game play is exactly what i expected and wanted. A very realistic Motorcycle Racing Sim. It has Arcade which is the most FUN, Simulation mode, which is ultra realistic physics wise, and multiplayer. it's also the only bike game officially sponsored by sbk championship with real riders. I wish you could customize ur bike little more look wise, but that's not really what the sport is about. You can do a fair bit of tuning and changing things in your garage and that gives a real simulation feel.
in arcade mode your guy has a little more tug with steering, and also seems to slide more back tire if you try around turns. The game has value for the amount of options to race and play. it feels pretty real when racing in both cams. i love first person seeing the gauges and all. it really seems that you're gripping the track with the raw power of the bike. a good sense of speed and very challenging. I highly recommend this game as the current best moto sim. only wish the graphics were more photo real (tho my tv is only 720 so 1080 might look sweeter)
A great overall game, don't listen to EXTREMELY negative ratings, they are from people attached to other games. I tried moto gp 08 / 09 demos and wasn't impressed ever with the physicists.
SBK X is the one i bought. Very happy with it. Jump online and race!! bring it on Rossi ;)
yes: I recommend this product
