If you're a fan of Moto GP or motorcycles in general, I'd say you'll get some decent enjoyment out of this. It's a shame it's really the only game in town. Let me say up front that I really do like this game. That said I do have my fair share of gripes with it. It seems to perform better than 2013, but for a "last gen" game, there really is no excuse for the occasional frame drops I get.
Also, the AI is very weak, seems like a step back from last year, which wasn't great. The AI is so linear with no personality whatsoever and are basically on rails. Come to think of it, I am almost a season in and have not seen a single crash (that didn't involve me).
Also the difficulty is basically useless. I want to win, but I like a challenge so, like last year, I turn it down a little until I get in the groove and then crank it back up. However, even on medium difficulty I have issues, but it's more the inconsistency of the AI. I can go out blind folded on Free Practice, Qualifying, and Warm Up and set the pole by 2 seconds, but on race day, certain tracks, the AI will then go out and out lap you by 3-4 seconds! Also, I have noticed if the AI is in front of you, they are very difficult, but if and when you manage to get past them, magically they suck horribly and will fall far behind you, whereas if you do not get the position back quickly, they will continue to pull from you and there is little to be done about it.
The AI also appears to be bound by a different, more lenient set of physics laws as well, as they are able to hold corner speed that you cannot dream of in general. Hold tight lines and accelerating faster at full lean, while you're picking the bike up and cannot keep up. On that same note though some tracks with open fast corners, they always are extremely slow which allows you to blow by them.
Anyways, even though this review must sound highly negative, I do enjoy the game, and it offers plenty of fun to be had, and I will continue to keep playing and getting better.
Side note: does anyone play this online as I can never seem to find any active lobbies?
