MotoGP 2018 is something only avid fans of the genre should check out. Although there are some improvements to presentation, problems with the murky colour tone palette persist, on top of irritating texture resolution issues with the racing scenery. If sticking to time attack, hardcore bike fans looking for realism may be able to scratch their itch here. However, put other drivers on the track and the illusion quickly shatters. The AI just isn't dynamic or reactive enough. For those taking things less seriously, this will be less of an issue but, either way, it's not very much fun being in their company. It is nice being able run your own 2018 season in tandem with the real thing, but the Career Mode is nothing special. Even if the online mode and the eSport Championship function well enough, the lacklustre collision detection will hinder that side of the experience, too. This is flawed and rushed.

Unfortunately, the promised "unique racing experience" will not take place this year either. MotoGP 18 is a good but not perfect racing game which lags behind in terms of presentation and online support.

Bike games always seem to get the short end of the stick and MotoGP 18 isn't going to help that cause. It might be a build up towards a better tomorrow, but for now you'll have to deal with a finish out of the points.

We must say that this year, MotoGP 18 loved it. It's true, maybe we are not in front of a perfect title, maybe something is still missing to reach that goal, yet it has all the credentials to be considered satisfactory. The driving model has definitely improved, works well, respects the laws of physics and gives us fantastic gameplay. The contents are really good, wide and varied and personalization is at the top. Of course, you can still do a lot, you can improve an AI that turns out to be little care, you can refine the facial models, expressions and similarities and you can still dare to the level of graphics. But in general we are there, a title that you can not miss if you are a fan of the World Championship!

MotoGP 18 captures the look and feel of the sport, but does little to give it any sort of personality or excitement that makes it feel alive. Though, if you were gone from the series for a while, there’s a lot you missed and can see what’s been improved. Even those who played MotoGP 17 will see major changes for the better. What’s here in MotoGP 18 is a deep and involved career mode that is the star of the show, it’s just a shame that none of the other modes were given as much attention to shine as bright.

This racing simulator is good but not great. It’s a definite improvement over last years MotoGP17, but it isn’t all that it could be.

MotoGP 18 is a competent sequel that improved both graphics and physics. It's just a bit of a shame it lacks content. If you've played the previous entries, feel free to ignore this one and wait for MotoGP 19. If this would be your first motorsport video game, you won't choose wrong,

"Driving is natural, but multiplayer modes are completely missing."

MotoGP 2018 is merely an update of last year's game, rather than the groundbreaking renewal of the franchise Milestone claims it is. While the job is well done on the important points of the game, it's not enough to really feel like a different game, but fans will not be disappointed.

MotoGP 18 offers huge content through singleplayer and multiplayer with a new engine, better graphics, bikes and tracks that looks the most colorful, yet the style of gameplay can not combine realism and excitement at the same time and any player will have to make countless mistakes in each race before he can improve his skills slightly
