There are 5 different difficulty levels. In the beginning, you are limited to a small number of race tracks. Once you make it to Grand Prix mode, you can race the entire season on 10 of the 16 official race tracks. Your competition consists of about 30 experienced riders on various makes and models of 500cc motorcycles. Races take place all over the world including Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, and Australia and on famous tracks such as Donington and Suzuka. Playing through the Career mode will unlock more tracks for the Time Trials and Quick Race modes.

Customizations include the ability to assign the controls to your preference, color choices for your bike, helmet, leathers etc., importing your own custom soundtracks, and other upgrades which are unlocked with ability points you earn as you win. Graphical effects like weather changes, variable lighting, cheering fans and on-track competitor animations have been added for realism.
