Ive read a few reviews and talked to even more online "friends". Gameplay is just amazing and still is more "sim" than "arcade" which I like, but they do allow you to turn crashes off for the less skilled/patient folks. The online feature has its glitches but most games do and they are eventually resolved.

I'll be buying a 360 soon and MGP3 is on the top of the list.

I said Sim and XBOX were kewl. Most of the rest of their stuff is either not kewl, or purchased. Of course, MotoGP 06 is not from MS (and it IS KEWL!).

I love the game. I finished the rookie grand prix season last week and just finished the extreme 600 rookie season today. I haven't played it online yet. I'll post my lap times later.

do they use real life tracks on that game?? I would love to buy a 360, but better graphics would be pointless if i dont have a better tv lol. Maybe i'll get a smaller plasma, but i need to fix bike first

Evil Twin? nah, nothing related to Erin could be evil...

Got it running on an 80" Mitsubishi (standard format). I'm gonna try it on the 42" plasma by the pool table sometime...

I'm not a gamer, but I got this from another forum. I can't believe how great these graphics are. This is from PlayStation a game called Tourist Trophy or TT.

wheelies are much better in this game than the others, you can hit the balance point and just hit the rear brake to keep it there. Alright here are my times on the grand prix tracks thus far, some are fast some are slow I'm still getting used to the new tracks.

Jerez- 1:24.33
Estoril- 1:18.90
Shanghai- 1:50.32
LeMans- 1:19.02
Mugello- 1:31.37
Catalunya- 1:31.62
Assen- 1:55.97
Laguna Seca- 1:13.82
Donington- 1:20.70
Sachsenring- 1:02.77
Brno- 1:39.88
Motegi- 1:37.95
Sepang- 1:57.02
Losail- 1:43.58
Phillip Island- 1:13.88
Istanbul- 1:38.10
Valencia- 1:17.13
