Description

The third iteration of the MotoGP franchise updates the GP section of the game for the 2004 season with up to date tracks, bikes & riders. There are four skill levels, full varied weather effects, and all the real riders and bikes.

It also a new Extreme mode to the experience. There are 16 Extreme tracks, each based in or near the locations of the real Grands Prix, giving the game a total of 32 tracks. These are generally faster than the real circuits, but they add hazards such as tight alleyways and bumpy cobbled roads. New customisable street bikes (both 2- and 4-stroke) are featured in the game, specifically for racing on the new Extreme tracks. Earnings in this mode are spent on bike upgrades.

The on-line section of the game now utilises a seeding system to match riders with a similar ability together. Your seeding starts at 100, and reduces as you win races, depending on their difficulty. Turning the negative of releasing a 2004 season recreation well into 2005 into a positive, the X-Box version also includes some highlight footage of the real 2004 MotoGP season.

The game also boasts a new Commentator Mode and Spectator Mode which allow non racing players to watch and comment on a race while they wait for a new game to start.
