I'm not familiar at all with the MotoGP championship. I once saw a race, but didn't watch it to the end because I didn't find it appealing, at least not for me. And to be honest, I don't really like motorcycles because they're like death insurance, you make a wrong move and you end up dead. But let's get to the main subject here: GP 500. At first, I thought that this might be another Formula 1
simulation game, but nope, it's not that. Actually, it's a simulation of the MotoGP championship, I think. I have only played the demo version of the game and it gave enough reasons to enjoy. The controls, while they're basic, they're okay, but be careful because this is a simulation game, not an arcade game, like Motocross Madness
. The track are nicely done and it's quite fun racing on POV mode. However, the HUD is kinda disappointing, because you're not given the information you need, like position and number of laps. But maybe that was just in the demo version. The sounds of the engine are extremely well done and really make you feel that you're riding at over 300 kmph. Overall, GP 500 is a decent motorcycle racing game and is even worth your time.
