-Inclusion of Moto3 and Moto2 gives this game a much easier learning curve
-AI are actually good at avoiding you, unlike some sims
-Lowsiding, highsiding, skidding all feels appropiate and can be hard to recover from
-Difficulty levels actually make sense. Easy is easy and Realistic is just that. Realistic AI laptimes are actually faster than real life to match a player's ability to do so.
-Sound feels a little dated
-Limited helmet choices and they are all very similiar.
-It's too easy to run on the grass or clip a sand trap without falling, doesn't feel harsh enough
-The game has a thing for rain in Career mode races. More variety and sun would've been appreciated
-Not that its a problem unique to this sim but the AI still fail to take high speed corners effectively and so tracks with multiple high speed corners are too easy.
-If you use braking lines, this one is alittle off. I prefer to use the real white markers, which are perfectly placed and easily visible
Overall its an above average sim for me, and its actually fun to play. Setting the AI to max and going to one of your favorite tracks actually leads to exciting battles and the motorcycles are very forgiving in what racing line you take, allowing you to have even tighter battles than you would have with cars.
Note: There is a huge glitch in this game that should be forwarned before buying. If you use Steam Cloud and have more than one computer, using this game on a second computer will stop your career mode from saving -ever- again on either computer. The fix is simple enough, you just don't use Steam Cloud for this game.
