Critic Reviews for Valentino Rossi The Game

As a non-racer guy, Valentino Rossi: The Game felt more like a curiosity, one that was rewarded in the ways I played and learned more about the man himself, Valentino Rossi. As a racing experience, though, this was generic. Obviously, mileage will most certainly vary depending on how big a fan one is of the world of MotoGP. At best, for fans of Rossi himself, this is at least a rental.

Valentino Rossi: The Game is the official MotoGP videogame for 2016, with tons of contents and features, and a good gameplay.

Valentino Rossi: The Game may be too much of an advert for the motorcycle legend himself, but it finally brings the MotoGP series back to the top of its game.

Overall, Valentino Rossi: The Game is a solid racing game that offers more content than any of the previous releases in the series. The single-player offering is vastly improved thanks to a much deeper, personal and varied career mode, and the introduction of the Valentino Rossi experience which gives players a genuine insight into one of the sport’s most iconic riders. It’s just a shame that the game’s engine can’t quite can’t quite keep up the pace with all of Milestone’s other improvements.

Valentino Rossi: The Game knows everything there is to know about the man behind the number 46. I just wish it knew a little bit more about crafting an exciting MotoGP game.

Valentino Rossi The Game needs more care for aesthetic, the driving system is not perfect and still suffers from some physical inaccuracies. However, the game has accomplished a big result: it is not a plain racing game, it's a game about passion for racing.

Valentino Rossi The Game marks a significant leap forward for Milestone s.r.l, it has created an excellent MotoGP experience, managing to capture the career of biking legend. This is a must buy for fans of The Doctor, and anyone that likes bikes!

Admittedly, there is plenty of single-player content for motor racing enthusiasts to get stuck into here. However, there's no doubt that anyone who plays driving games with four wheels will probably impose a higher measure of quality on this experience. Far too many of the core gameplay elements let Valentino Rossi: The Game down, which results in something that can be enjoyed to an extent, but should also be viewed as a disappointment by anyone who sees the big picture. It's certainly not terrible, it's just that Milestone can do so much better - and has done in the past. While it's a regularly-cited criticism that they seem to pump out plenty of racing games with low average standards, particularly with all the Moto GP experience they already have under their belt, there was no good reason why this couldn't have been their best yet. That is, except for the fact that Ride 2 was on its way within four or five months. Most racing developers would have seen that as a scheduling conflict.
