    Oh, great. Locked preorder content. And that bike will cost you £5 since Game will be that much more expensive than everywhere else.

    Yeah seems that way. Just been googling and it's appeared on the Microsoft store so maybe not as exclusive as GAME would have us believe...

    Out tomorrow then?
    Slim chance of a Eurogamer review I suppose.
    I want to BELEEVE, but, despite an £40 digital pre-order price on PSN, I donít think I can bite until Iíve read some impressions.

    These guys seem pretty positive about it and they're normally pretty good.

    I'll be picking up my pre order sometime in the morning. Hopefully I'll like it.

    Iím close, havenít bought a full priced game at launch for about six months and feel the itch.
    Going to be a sensible twat though I think.

    7/10 Eurogamer Spain- brilliant detailed TT track but not enough meat on the bone elsewhere in terms of bikes, track, career etc.

    "alarming lack of content" doesn't sound great.

    I *think* I could lap the IoM track forever, in a similar vein to Nordschelife, everything about the feel would have to be super satisfying though. Meh, wait for a couple of solid reviews I guess.

    Man, love that cockpit view, great vid. It's mind blowing people do that in real life with circuit crash barriers replaced with jagged stone walls and Mrs Jenkins azaleas lining the track.

    Yeah it looks great. I always really struggle with cockpit view on bike games though.

    Well it's difficult. Semi pro setup and I've crashed more than I wanted so far. Sound wise it's good and the sense of speed is there but I can't customize the control setup as I'd like. I would like the throttle control on the right stick but instead of back break I'd like front break on the right stick with rear break on the R2 trigger.

    It's the same settings I've used in just about every bike game so having to retrain the brain a bit here.
    Handlebar view seems accessible certainly more than Ride 2 for example but again need practice.

    Career mode is nothing special. Management email stuff with ££ for wins and bike repairs.

    Day 1 patch around 500mb on the PS4

    Does it run ok on PS4? Any slowdown?

    From what I've played so far no it seems to play well enough on the base PS4. I've got a handlebars view video recorded so I'll probably share that on here at some point.

    The fictional tracks I've played so have been good to.

    That is for the thoughts Nitrous.

    Scant coverage out there but have found one more review and itís very much in line with the other- brilliant track, graphics etc buy very sparse everywhere else. It feels like itís very much a hot lapping game alone, which, given the location is still a decent draw. Definitely getting it but I think Iíll wait until itís cheaper.

    It's Dirt Rally but with Bikes to me... Almost.
    It's frustrating at times and I've only just managed to tackle jumps. Roll out of the throttle and then thread it back in again. That gets the weight transferred to the back and the front lifts up. Looks great on replays rather than crashing all the time.

    It doesn't have the vast amount of bikes due to none of the real life race teams taking a road going Yamaha R1, Suzuki GSXR1000 or a Ducati Panigale to the TT. I suppose the only way they could do it would be a legends DLC pack. That would get the bike count up.

    Tracks, yeah could do with a few more and it's a shame they couldn't or wouldn't include the north west 200 or ulster grand prix tracks.

    Overall I'm enjoying it.

    Edit: Just seen via Gtplanet and a tweet that Sidecars will be added to the game for free in May.

    Thatís cool, hopefully a nice contrast with slidey car like handling, which makes me think- Higgins/Subaru DLC next please 😄

    Nice video, not seen it before but I have seen the same car in GTsport after a recent update.

    Just done my 1st full lap race round the TT and there is indeed some frame rate issues especially near the start of the lap. For the most part it runs very smoothly so hopefully this gets sorted in a patch.

    When it clicks though it's very enjoyable!

    That may be the final push I need. I've been trying to decide between this or project cars 2.

    The EG review is fucking awful and shouldn't be used as a benchmark for anything.

    This is a middling bike game, wrapped up in a pretty awful package
    Doesn't exactly scream BUY THIS NOW.

    It doesn't scream buy now, no.
    But, if you're a TT nut and the chance to learn the course is there with reasonable handling- and it only sounds passable from that review- then it's pretty compelling. More general motorsport fans I think have a tougher decision to make.

    ACG reckons its a rent or get it on sale, not nearly enough content for a full priced game and some annoyances like having no sensitivity setting. Good review and worth a watch if you have time.

    It's right up above ;)
    I really do want to fully twat the Isle Of Man, but it's probably a £30 twat, not a £40'er.
