Description official description

This game follows the 98 Championship of the World of GP motorbike racing with 500cc bikes raced by the likes of Michael Doohan, Max Biaggi, Alex Creville.

GP500 gives you a choice of the 14 circuits raced in 1998, the real riders and 6 different bikes (the V2s and V4s, and the Modenas KR3 V3).

Kenny Roberts Jr. tested the bikes' physics models, so they are very accurate to drive, making GP 500 an accurate simulation not suitable for beginners.

A pure motorcycle simulation

The Good
You must learn how to ride a motorcycle to play this game. The AI bikes fight you tooth and nail in every corner. The best motorcycle racing simulation bar none. I would recommend this game to anyone who thinks they can handle the rush. The graphics are great, the AI is tough and the replayability is infinfite. If you can find it get it NOW!!!

The Bad
Nothing about the game itself. But alot of the sites that used to support this awesome game seem to be vanishing. One place to still get downloads is Blackhole Motorsports.

The Bottom Line
Pure adrenaline, no let down whatsoever. It grabs you by the balls and doesn't let go until the checkered flag. Bike mods keep this game updated with MotoGP skins and bikesets. You can race a full field of bikes even on older computers.
