MotoGP™15 is a one of the many motorcycle racing game and, as it has also proven in 2015 edition, it is almost certainly the best game there is of this genre. If you're interested in racing games, be sure to have a look.
If this review is too long for you, I suggest you to only read the first paragraph about the game's content and the final verdict at the end.

What is happening in the game:
As you probably know, the point of this game is to race and, if you're good enough, win the race. With diverse customisation, you are able to modify your vehicle just the way you want. There are a lot of tracks to drive on and also games modes, including instant race and championship. Well, it's exactly what you would expect from a racing game.

  • I can't go past the graphics in my review. You might think that the screenshots are much better than the actual gameplay (as publishers usually make screenshots look astonishingly good), but in this case, the truth is not far behind. On several graphic options, from low to high, the game looked good.
  • The driving feels nice. I had some issues with controlling the vehicle (will be described in the Cons section), but when I fixed all the issues, my driving experience was excellent.
  • There are 18 tracks in this game and, as I understood, all of them are also a part of the real 2015 championship.
  • In case you need one, there is a pretty decent tutorial when you first start the game with the announcer guiding you through the game mechanics.
  • Some AAA companies these days are obsessed with DRM, but that doesn't seem to be the case in this game. You can freely play in offline mode any time you want.
  • Both your motorcycle and your outfit can be customisable with different colours, numbers and texts.
  • There are also different weather conditions.

  • The controller is a driving device by default and the game wants it to stay this way. When I make the keyboard the default playing device, this setting is reset every time I turn on the game.
  • If you have a QWERTZ keyboard instead of QWERTY, as I do, you should know that this game detects Y, when you press Z. I had quite some problems with that, as the default braking key is Z and I couldn't even brake before I figured this out.
  • As I've heard, there is not much difference from this game and its ancestor (MotoGP 14).
  • Sometimes, bots fall of their bikes very quickly on contact. No biggie.
  • No MacOS and Linux support? Come on, we're not in the 19th century!

The final verdict:
This game is awesome and, truth be told, I didn't expect anything else from an AAA game. Graphics are great, the feeling is great, the maps are great and controlling is great (after a few tweaks, if you have a keyboard). I had a lot of fun playing this and I don't consider myself the biggest fan of racing games. This game makes you excited when you play it even if you're not among the first on finish every time.
Buy it if you can. You won't be disappointed.

You heard correctly. This is exactly the same as MotoGP 14, even the intros before a race are the same. They only updated the teams and thats it.

Could have been a 5,- € DLC for MotoGP 14.
