Overall, MotoGP 20 is a game for the player looking to be as close to racing on a crotch rocket at 300 mph without having to go jump on a bike themselves.
Never quite impressing on any level, MotoGP 20 offers up an enthusiastic licensed release, which will please fans of the sport and motorcycle lovers but may fail to inspire everyone else. A less sterile approach to simulating the sport with a more impressive feeling of speed would be enough to crown Milestone as kings and queens of MotoGP.
MotoGP 20 gets even better, with an even more responsive, solid and fun gameplay that pushes you to improve continuously, lap after lap. The career mode adds an interesting managerial layer while the AI is not yet completely convincing. An excellent racing game, the best motorcycle video game on the market.

MotoGP 20 will tick all the boxes for what a game based on the most exhilarating racing sport on the planet should offer, but it'll seldom exceed your expectations thanks to its sterile presentation and no-thrills approach on the track.
MotoGP 20 represents an iterative upgrade over last year's entry. Fans who skipped MotoGP 19 should definitely pick up this year's release. The challenge is there for those who want it and taking care of the business side of being a professional rider can be its own reward. Taking a no-handholding approach will no doubt turn off new fans of the sport, but difficulty sliders help to ensure all but the most incompetent leaners will see a podium finish. There may not be many choices when it comes to MotoGP simulations, but thankfully what is here is choice.
The MotoGP series has been a bit of a mixed bag over the years, but with MotoGP 20 Milestone is finally beginning to realise its vision for a full-bodied racing simulation. The considerable Career mode offers a deep management experience, while the introduction of Historic Mode adds a fun way to earn rewards for daily challenges. But it's the changes to on-track performance and the deeper bike mechanics that make this a truly realistic, if not particularly penetrable, experience.
MotoGP 20 evolves little, but evolves well compared to its previous version. It gains a better team management, both cosmetic and mechanical damage as well as improved management of the motorcycle during the race. It is therefore a little deeper and more interesting. For the next version, in addition to an essential update, we are asking for paddocks that really live and enough to satisfy the thirst for knowledge of motorcycle enthusiasts.

MotoGP 20 is a top notch recreation of one of the fastest series on two wheels. The career mode is entertaining, especially if you decide to take on being a new team. Visually stunning, audibly arresting and just downright fun to play when you get the hang of it, MotoGP 20 is a must for any serious fan of the sport.
A hit or miss racing sim. Great at what it needs to be, but takes a few hits in some areas. Deal breakers for some but not others.
MotoGP 20 offers exactly what it claims, and nothing else; a strong, detailed simulation for enthusiasts. For that audience, the game delivers in spades. For all others, your racing fix, motorcycles included, is better served elsewhere.
