set at different times in varying weather conditions...
GP Ultimate Racing Technology 3 is
possibly the most impressive bike racing game on the market
at present. The graphics are fantastic and the gameplay is
spot on. In fact the only element that lets this game down
is the rather bland music. It's not that it's totally dire,
it's just that there's nothing that exciting about it.
are so many different race types to choose from including
some pretty impressive street racing. The Shires course actually
made me really believe that I was racing through the English
countryside. But probably the best place to start (you'll
need to unlock elements and earn money before you can progress
any further) is the Grand Prix level.
you start a new season, assuming that you don't just fancy
a one off race, you can practice racing around the track,
then move up to qualify, or you can just start the race at
the back of the pack.
worth going through the tutorial stages (even if on one of
the levels the vocals and text give
conflicting information on how to perform a move) before your
start racing. When you first start racing, your bike handles
like a brick and you'll be all over the track as you over
compensate for each bend. The trick is to follow some of the
other riders in the qualifying laps and see how they handle
each corner - you'll be surprised at how slow you can go and
still beat them. In fact a good trick is to keep you finger
on the accelerator and then at the last minute slam on both
the rear and front brakes to take you down to a crawl as you
enter the sharper corners.
are problems though. Take for example the fact that you invariably
come off the worse in any collision and the added frustration
that you get dethroned a little too often by other bikers
who ram into you. There's also the fact that your bike can
be a little slow to respond when cornering (although to be
fair this is a problem that can be fixed as you earn points
and transfer them into tweaking you bike).
those very minor negative points, and you have one hell of
a great bike game.
