It probably is as far as graphics.

But you can’t beat the MotoGP series for Xbox when it comes to gameplay.

The graphics for MotoGP 07 is pretty nice…….I’d be surprised if there was a motorcycle racing game that could rival it in any aspect.

But it’s for Xbox 360 only…….so MotoGP3 is about the next best thing. TT was ok….. didn’t like the gameplay…….I think they tried to make it a little to real. Didn’t work out for the best I’m afraid.

Same here. Although I don't play Halo that much anymore........

I don't have a whole bunch of time for games like I used to.....so GP 07 is about the only one that I show some love to these days.

If you got '07.....look me up on Xbox live. BloodstripeCPL

I use to run the real lappers when they where having them.......but now I get on occasionaly after work when I have time.

There were a lot of problems with the servers that supported the game, but they ended up fixing it. But yea there was problems with joining races, I was .

No problems now......but another group is going to make the next GP game for xbox, so we'll have to see how that turns out.

The WSBK game for 360 looks good......can't wait!

I hate the way the bikes handle with the xbox controllers. I've had motogp3 for the first gen xbox, then motogp 06 and 07 for the 360. I still can't get the hang of it and it kills my thumbs! BUT at least I beat Dingo last year!!

Getting back to OP, bug +1 for the Keith Code TOTW books, I also found Nick Ienastac (sp??) Sport Riding Techniques a good read as well. I recommend too.

You have to play around with the bike set-ups to make them easier to control.

Make sure that your right trigger is gas and your left is the front brake so you can modulate both at the same time.

Try different powerslide sensitivity levels.

Thank you all very much for the replies! It's greatly appreciated.

I'm pulling the trigger! Off to buy MotoGP '07 for XBox 360.

I'm hoping to pick up an SV650 this weekend or next so I have something I can put on the track. Any of you that ride the tracks will soon be very familiar with the -end of the SV. Me, MotoGP, and my 650.

Hopefully, the deal won't go through and I'll get it from him.
