Milestone delivers great bike simulation, but it doesn´t show much improvement from previous entries, even with a new graphic engine. Despite of the official licenses (pilots, teams, bikes and tracks) we still miss some details and new game modes.

The MotoGP series has long suffered from a lack of obvious progression from one release to the next. This time, Milestone has at least tried to do things differently and switch game engines, but right now that hasn't paid off. Last year's game was already supposed to be a transitional one, yet here we are with a game that is a regression for a series that was becoming a bit stale.

It's probably better to think of Milestone's latest release less in terms of a video game and more in terms of a product designed for MotoGP enthusiasts. It's stuffed to the brim with Moto Grand Prix-related details like racers, tracks, and commentary, and includes plenty of different options that riders can use to tweak their bikes and chase a podium finish. With that said, MotoGP 18 simply feels less thrilling than it should, mostly due to its underwhelming graphics, spartan presentation, and monotonous gameplay.

After some years in the shadows, the official MotoGP game is back in pole position.

One step forward, two steps back. The MotoGP license have been developed with the Unreal Engine 4 for the first time with few notable improvements, but with the absence of previous modalities for a fairly limited offer.

MotoGP 18 is a clear step forward from its predecessor with the previously used proprietary engine already looking dated.

It's an improvement on the previous iteration, even if only visually. Aside from that, it feels like the same game but ever so slightly improved. That's the real shame, the jump from Milestone's ageing engine to Unreal had a lot of potential. Considering everything, do I recommend MotoGP 18? If you want a motorbike racing game now, then go for it. If not, you may be better waiting for Ride 3.

MotoGP 18 is impressive, as all of Milestone's games are, but that doesn't always translate to fun for general audiences. This title is a must have for serious Grand Prix fans, but lay people like me it comes off as overwhelming with a tedious learning curve.

Yes, MotoGP 2018 is only an update with some editing of its previous edition. But the job is well done on the important points that matters ; driving sensations, adjustable realism at all levels, and comprehensive content regarding the real MotoGP and its virtual transposition. This is as much at the level of the circuits as of the machines and the pilots. We can regret the lack of competition that has probably confined a bit to Milestone laziness. There is still a lot of room for improvements. But if you like the MotoGP, you will not be disappointed by this game that does the job correctly.

Taking large strides forward in terms of accessibility, MotoGP 18 regrettably has a lot of issues and is undoubtedly a casualty of the annual format. Cinematic, customization and an enhanced career mode are all done to such a minimum that they barely make any impact. Fine tuning your bike has worthy detail with the tracks themselves being better recreated than ever before, yet this only goes so far. Extended loading times, washed out textures, and an unobtainable online infrastructure crucify what could have been a fresh start for the franchise. Worst of all, the personalities behind the sport have not transcended whatsoever – taking away one of its greatest assets. If released in 2014, MotoGP 18 may have held up (apart from the atrocious online) and even be considered innovative. Nonetheless, this is 2018 and with so many games on the market, one of this quality cannot be recommended.

This isn't for racing novices; the aids take away the challenge but turning them off makes things brutally realistic.

MotoGP 18 is the official game of the sport yet despite an extensive career mode and an overhauled engine, developer Milestone has only iterated rather than innovated.

Whilst MotoGP 18 represents a step in the right direction for Milestone and this series there's still work to be done for things to reach the next level.

MotoGP 18 is a great racing game, powered by Unreal Engine 4, with all the bikes, teams and tracks of the official Championship. Milestone delivers an incredible racing experience.

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.

Does MotoGP 18 worth a try? Absolutely not. Motor racing by default is not a really popular idea to make a video game out of however Milestone fails to do so. If you think we can't expect an AAA from an indie studio, just look at the number of games Milestone release every year.

MotoGP 18 is like an average player that plays in a football team without any substitute! He is sure that he plays every week so he doesn't try to improve himself or in this case, itself! Because of no competitor, MotoGP 18 has not seen big gameplay improvements and milestone just upgrades the visual every year. If you expect a huge upgrades on gameplay elements, MotoGP 18 will be a huge disappointment for you. but If you are a fan of this series or you just want to enjoy a fun racing game, the new installment of MotoGP, satisfy you for sure.

This is a good first step for the series which is in the dire need of a reboot, but it still manages to falter with its essential gameplay mechanics and lacks in a presentation that is easy to see if you have played a lot of racing games. Nonetheless, this is still a fun racing game that should satisfy the fans of the series, but it is hard not to express disappointment over the potential even when the shift to Unreal Engine is a big one.

With Ride 3 just around the bend most casual fans might be better off waiting. Anyone returning to the perennial racer may not be able to help but have a sense of déjà vu.

There are some good things Milestone has done with MotoGP18. The controls are fun and realistic and I really enjoyed the career. But in whole, it doesn't feel much different from previous iterations. Still, it's a good choice for fans of MotoGP
