This is the most recent version of the popular MotoGP simulation franchise, but for some reason it never got released in the US market, despite proving popular in Europe. But don’t worry, hardcore MotoGP fans can get their hands on it thanks to suppliers importing English language copies from the UK.

It’s a couple of years old now, but still stands up pretty well and if you love MotoGP, this is the most faithful simulation you’ll find. As well as all the tracks, riders and manufacturers present in the 2015 season, the game also features a historic class which lets players access bikes from as far back as 1992. And you know what that means – 500cc two-stroke madness!

There are a number of motorcycle games for the Sony PS3 (PlayStation 3). The most well known video game that features motorcycles on this platform is Grand Theft Auto IV, and while it’s not specifically focused on bikes there are a wide variety of models that can be acquired in the game and ridden around the huge, detailed city environment.

There’s also an add-on pack for GTA IV called “The Lost and the Damned” which features a complete story line based around a biker gang, so there are obviously plenty of bikes to ride in that. Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete is a pack which includes both the full game and the Lost and Damned addon pack.

The gameplay in GTA IV revolves around missions which usually involve shooting and driving/riding vehicles around the city, and while it’s a lot of fun it might not be what you’re looking for if you want a game in which you can race motorcycles around a track.

Motorcycle racing games for PS3

SBK X – Superbike World Championship – released in 2010 this is the most recent of the motorcycle racing games on the PS3 platform. It allows players to participate in the World Superbike Championship and features all of the most famous riders, manufacturers and tracks. Although it’s a fairly recent game, it includes a “legends” pack which lets you play as some of SBK’s most famous riders of the past, including the legendary Carl Fogarty on his 1999 Ducati 996. The game offers an arcade mode for players who don’t want to take things too seriously, or a simulation mode for those who want a more realistic challenge, and career mode lets you work your way up through the ranks, starting in the Superstock class.

There are several great motorcycle games for PS3

If you’re more of a MotoGP fan, the most recent motorcycle racing game for PS3 featuring that series is MotoGP 10/11. The reviews for this game aren’t as good as SBK, but it is still rated as a perfectly playable game for fans of MotoGP. There are various game modes including full season, one off race, time trials and an multiplayer online mode which allows up to 20 players to race against each other.

Fans of dirt riding might want to take a look at MotorStorm which allows players to race across some of America’s best known desert scenery on off road bikes and cars too. Alternatively MX vs ATV Alive gives you the choice of racing motorcycles or ATVs around motorcross tracks – this is the fifth version of this popular franchise and has got pretty good reviews from players.
