Unlike the more popular disciplines such as NASCAR, Formula 1 and the countless arcade and simulation titles, when it comes to motorbike racers, it hits a niche to be frank. More often than not, a game of such a style will appeal to people with a genuine interest in the motorsport, and due to its uniqueness, will deter casual gamers. MotoGP 08 however was set to change that, Capcom stating that its multi-tiered riding models would appeal, suit and attract both casual and serious racers alike. But was this enough to bring the game to the masses and revolutionize the genre?"
