Unless you leak petrol when cut or have a hunger for exhaust fumes, this motorbike racer won't spike your excitement levels. It's full of licensed bikes from Honda, Ducati and Yamaha and there's a superb sensation of speed but the realism-heavy racing - where leaving the track once can cost you the race - is as thrilling as climbing a staircase.
There are two options: build up a rookie biker in Career mode, earning experience and improving your abilities, or a race for silverware in Trophies mode. Riding Challenge has superb handling and you can shift your rider's weight around to improve control. It's not original - although it's done better than in Tourist Trophy - but it's simple and it works well. Even so, the emphasis on restrained racing makes this an unworkable and sterile ride.
