Tourist Trophy review! - April 5, 2006, 09:14 PM

Quick write up so people can at least get a feel for it......

This game is amazing if you loved Gran Turismo and love bikes this will be the game for you to buy and have a long long time until they come out with something like it for PS3 or 360. Despite not being on 360 the graphics are still available in 1080i just like GT4 so it looks amazing with an HD like feel. The thing that stands out most for me in this game besides the graphics is the attention to detail! The physics are JUST like riding in real life and even the wrecks simulate what would happen depending on how you crash or land. The rider will respond according to how you have him ride be it leaning the bike over versus leaning off or riding with his head lowered or with his head nuetral and waist twisted. You can choose the type of gear you wear, the color, the helmet, etc. You can choose from a ton of bikes from classics in the 80's and current bikes as well not to mention numerous race bikes, You can choose the factory colors for each as well. They really did their work on licensing in this game too, You have Aria, Sidi, Teknic and numerous other motorcycle companies in it. I really don't know what else to say but to buy it ASAP if you love bikes. All in all it's better then the MOTO GP series hands down and I can't really give it a rating since I have'nt played it enough yet to do that. Ask me specifics and I'll be sure to answer.

I recorded some short clips on my Treo if anyone wants them just give me yoru email.

I got my copy today too. Already won 3 bikes and I picked up the street version of the 05 GSXR 600. I'm 9 steps away from having the Super License. The 1080i feature looks really good. I like how they did the dynamics of the game play. It really makes you be smooth unlike the Moto GP series.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to pick it up when I get back...from what I saw at the DC motorcycle show it looked pretty good.

I saw that MotoGP 4 has an actual motorcycle style controller so I hope it will be capable of integrating with this game!

Do you know if this game offers multiplayer or network enabled gaming?

I have been waiting for a review for this game, from our forums. I wasnt a big fan of the GT series, but cycles are a whole different world. I will be picking this up this afternoon. TO bad it doesnt support online play.

Can somebody compare the handling physics to those in Riding Spirits and Superbike TT? This will be the deciding factor in whether I buy it.

I just went ahead a bought it figuring I'd sell it if I don't like it. It looks like I'll be keeping it. It will at least be fun to compare lap times to GT4.

The handling physics are much better than Riding Spirits and the wheelie and stoppie action is really good except the fucked up view it gives you when doing a wheelie and you can't see a damn thing. You can't make the rear spin up and slide. I have yet to be able to lowside by riding the brakes hard in to a turn while leaned over.

The handling is not as good as Superbike TT. The bikes get all floaty like a hovercraft or something. That's the most annoying thing so far. When you should crash you don't, when you shouldn't you do. Should-be lowsides toss the rider off the highside. It takes
seemingly forever for the GSXR1000 racebike to go 0-60mph.

The VFR actually sounds like a VFR, albeit one with a stock exhaust.

I tried out the GSXR1000 racebike on the Nurburgring. I did one lap- 9:17.224
I have a lot of work to do.


One more gripe: Since when does a DRZ400SM sound like a GSXR1000.

I got it to lowside and highside tonight. You can force the bike to get sideways and it will throw you off.

Here's a picture I got from playing around tonite.

Very nice brooks. I think I might sneak out this weekend and grab a copy. I haven't had my PS2 hooked up for over a year. Time to dust it off

This game rocks. Travis, don't feel bad about your Nurburgring time. I rode it on a gixxer 750 and only managed a 9 minute flat, and I rode that thing in real life countless times. I must say, I thought the N-ring in GT4 was good, but somehow they've improved it for this game. Every inch of the track is dead on.

I was able to get the tire spinning on the 750. Way too much throttle while cranked over in a corner. The bike spins up to the limiter and the tire throws a bunch of smoke, but they don't make it step out on you which sucks. I love the wheelies on this thing though.

The only thing that is keeping me from buying it is there is no full-grid racing. 4 bikes at most at a time.

They say these bikes have more polygons in them than any car in GT4.
