Moto GP 3 is the third in Namco's series of track-based bike racers, and it's easily the pick of the bunch. Although the game originated in the arcades, this PS2 version is primarily a realistic biking simulation. Outside of the game's Arcade Mode, it's important to learn how best to shift your rider's weight, and it's vital that you discern when to use front brakes and when to pull the back brakes. You can lose control even on a straight section of track--it's that realistic. The great thing is, though, that Moto GP 3 can with sufficient practice be mastered by players of any skill level. And when it is mastered, it's an absolute scream to play.
Graphically, too, it's quite sublime. Real world tracks such as Estoril, Suzuka and Paul Ricard are depicted smoothly, with such attention to detail that you could squint and easily fool yourself into thinking you were watching TV coverage. Even engine noises have been honed to near-perfection. Each bike sounds distinct--exactly like its real-life counterpart.
Sequels often aren't worth bothering with if you have an earlier version of the game in question, but Moto GP 3 is a sequel that improves upon its predecessors in every way. And what's more, it brings all-new features into the equation--such as a gripping four-player split-screen mode and a front/back braking system on all of the game's many new bikes. Biking fans will be in heaven; others will be transformed into biking fans by Moto GP 3's high-speed thrills
