MotoGP has been a must watch event on the racing calendar and for some time gamers wanted the chance to have the same experience for themselves. Last year’s MotoGP 18 was great but did not deliver on the long run, will MotoGP 19 build on this success?

Milestone SRL has been building on the MotoGP series for a few years and since last year and this year’s release looks to be promising. Before the latest patch, the game had a very high difficulty level in terms of control and getting somewhere in practice. After the patch it seems that more balance has been put into place. With this said, you need to remember that MotoGP is intended to be a simulation racing game and not an arcade racer.

The gameplay can be tricky to master, corners can creep up on you and if your timing is off you will be in trouble. Being in the wrong gear can also throw you off your bike and cost you dearly. Selecting soft tyres seems a little pointless as they do not last long on any track condition.

The AI in the game is intended to give a more realistic feel to a real race but at seems still a bit weak. All the AI follow lead and seems at times invincible. Pit stops have a great presentation and adds a little extra to the race.

You will be challenged on free practice, warm ups, qualifying and races but luckily with your pit mechanic on hand you can try to fix these challenges as you progress.

MotoGP 19 is definitely a step in the right direction, the graphics look great, gameplay is challenging but good and the campaign is something you can invest a lot of time in. Time will tell if this release will have some longevity in it. A must on the radar for racing fans, especially fans of MotoGP.
