Moto GP 09/10 wallpaper Gameplay: MotoGP 09/10 takes the series in an exciting new casual direction rewarding players for their racing style and skill on the track.

This free update means gamers will be able to play the most up to date MotoGP season content earlier than ever before, compete in a full championship season across all three MotoGP bike classes (125cc, 250cc and MotoGP bike classes) and pit their skills against players around the globe.

Play Modes: In addition to familiar play options such as Championship Mode in which players live out the unfolding events of the 09/10 MotoGP season and Online Mode where they can race as they choose against players from around the world, MotoGP 09/10 offers a variety of new play options. In an all new Arcade Mode players must complete different race challenges before the time runs out. Time bonuses will be awarded for those who take risks on the track, but losing concentration will mean you face time being deducted making this an exciting gameplay addition for racing game fans. Run out of time and your chances of living the MotoGP dream will be over. Complementing Arcade Mode is the introduction of a fully realized Career Mode which provides an expansion to the MotoGP experience. In this players take control of their MotoGP championship both on and off the track competing in the races and managing their team as they try to build their career as a racing pro.

    Conclusion: Aside from the focus on its MotoGP license for fans, there’s not much to stand out in MotoGP 09/10. It’s fairly challenging, but the lack of variety and poor presentation with blurry textures ultimately make for an average, monotonous-sounding experience. Not an accurate-controlling bikes simulation, but instead an accessible arcade racer that’s fun for a few hours.
