Motorcycle racing games come and go. There are quite a lot of them, and some are pretty good, some are downright awful. But PiBoSo seems to have programmed a great MotoGP racing game, called GP Bikes Open GP Bikes link in a new window, that looks and feels realistic. Obviously, the only people who can say that it's realistic are real MotoGP racers, but from the looks of it ... what can I say?

The racing "engine" software has been built from scratch, in order words, it's not from one of the existing software engines. The great part about the software is that it runs in mutliplayer mode via the internet, so you can challenge your forum friends from around the world. The disadvantage is that it only runs on a PC, not a Mac.

But the biggest advantage of this superb software is its price.... €22. You should download a trial copy before to test it. It'll work so that you can try it out, afterwards buy the license, enter it in the software, and start playing it for real.

Here is a video showing you in a split screen the motorcycle camera's view of the game and the real MotoGP bike's view. The circuit is Phillip Island in Australia.

Usually these kind of games are trivial compared to the real deal. But if you have a look at the video below of someone trying to play it, you'll notice that the first few starts do not go the way you think. It looks as hard to play as a real MotoGP bike is to ride. The player crashes the bike in the first few meters. Exactly what would happen if you or me would climb onto a real MotoGP bike.

Looks like a fun game, especially if you can race against others around the world. The game has a very active discussion forum sinc ethe software is being updated all the time with user's comments and suggestions.
