I got the new MotoGP '13 game for my Xbox through the post the other day. I started playing it and I'm really impressed. The game is much better than the last versions that (dis)graced the shelves. The last decent version was MotoGP08 which featured double WSBK champion James Toseland on the cover, which reminds me, I really must review that.
The game starts you off nice and slowly, with wild card rides in Moto 3 at certain rounds of the championship. From there you start to build your career through the ranks right up to a possible factory ride in MotoGP. If Cal can do, so can I, albeit only digitally and even then, I'm not sure I'd pick the big red monster as my ride. You can make the game as easy or as hard as you like and the racing is good. You don't get a machine straight away that is good enough to win from the off as in previous games, so there is a real sense of accomplishment as you go. Despite being able to set it to much shorter races, I'm going through the game in full season mode. So far I really like this game and it even has the English voice of MotoGP guru Gavin Emmett, who is the happiest man in commentary.
