MotoGP has always been a beloved series of mine, being a mixture of a motorcycle fanboy and a gamer. MotoGP 19 does an incredible job at replicating intense motorcycle racing and really makes you feel like you are live in the action. However, I couldn’t shake the feeling that something was missing.
Milestone has once again come through and improved on their incredible motorcycle racers, and perfectly replicated what it feels like to be an actual MotoGP racer. The constant improvement in their physics engine, and the insane amount of detail they add, really shows on the track. The addition of the Neural AI system, where the AI reads your actions and reacts the same that you do, is absolutely masterful to watch. Not only will it match your aggressive riding style, but it will actively perform actions that it knows are your weaknesses. For example, I have a big blind spot for chopping corners too much, as well as going wide. The Neural AI was able to take advantage of this, and I saw riders actively brake as I took a corner, only to blow past me when I moved wide. It really was incredible, and not only increases the challenge, but you get lost in concentration thanks to the enhanced intensity.

Though, the machines should not be forgotten, as the 500cc 2-stroke crotch-rockets of old were just euphoric. Again, Milestone has paid so much detail to these bikes, that a friend who actually owned a Suzuki RGV-R 500 recognised the sound almost instantly over the microphone
MotoGP 19 once again delivered a phenomenal racing experience, but off track is where I have my biggest gripes. MotoGP 19 promises the introduction of a Race Director Mode, but it is available exclusively online, but I feel that this was a mistake
MotoGP 19 remains the greatest motorcycle Grand Prix simulator out there
Loves games with deep character development and a rich storyline. Also, shooty-shooties. Loathes microtransactions. Likes to use sarcasm and metaphors.
