by Rainier on June 12, 2007 @ 2:04 p.m. PDT

Capcom secured the PlayStation format rights to publish official videogames based on the adrenaline fuelled motor sport, MotoGP. Developed by Milestone, MotoGP '07 will feature all the riders, bikes, teams and tracks from the 2007 season.

MotoGP is the world’s premier motorcycling championship consisting of 18 Grands Prix from around the globe and featuring the world’s top motorcycle manufacturers including Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati, Kawasaki, KTM and Aprilia plus the world’s best riders such as Nicky Hayden, Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa, Makoto Tamada and Casey Stoner.

As an officially licensed MotoGP title, MotoGP 07 for the PS2 will feature all the riders, bikes, teams and tracks from the 2007 season. Players can faithfully re-create the excitement and passion of the sport and experience the rivalries and competition synonymous with the world’s premier motorcycling championship, as they ride for glory. Compete in a full season, create your own customised season, or select a one-off race either on your own or against a friend.

Whether gamers are new to the racing genre, fans of four-wheeled racers looking for a new challenge or veterans of motorcycle games, the diverse handling models of MotoGP 07 will allow players of varied skill levels to access and enjoy the adrenaline fuelled world of MotoGP. Features such as riding aids will provide newcomers to the series with the confidence to push their bikes to the limit. Experienced players will have the option to independently control front and rear brakes as well as the rider’s position, making them feel at one with their bike as they enter and exit the tightest of hairpins inches from the tarmac, before stepping on the gas to reach speeds of well over 200mph/320kph. Plus players can also adjust the AI of their race opponents, modifying speed and ability to match their own riding level and create a more balanced race.

Featuring a comprehensive set of 100 trials, each available at three difficulty levels, MotoGP 07’s Challenge Mode will test and hone players’ skills. Events include slalom challenges where players handling abilities are put to the test as they navigate a series of gates placed the length of the circuit and time trials which challenge players to beat the lap record for each circuit.
