Career mode

MotoGP 09/10 will feature 4 modes with the first of them being Career Mode. Players take control of their career on and off of the track competing in races and hiring engineers, team managers and press officers to help further their career as a pro and ultimately win the MotoGP World Championship. Demonstrating your riding skills on the track through overtaking, slipstreaming and showboating will be rewarded with Rider Reputation points. Pushing too hard can be detrimental as collisions and crashes will reduce the reputation bonus at the end of each race. The more rider reputation points you earn the more attractive you become to other manufactures, sponsors and employees. Your team will also research upgrades for your existing bike to increase its performance. As you start off at the 125cc you can upgrade your team into the Moto2 series and then ultimately into the MotoGP series. Career Mode has limitless number of years allowing you to continue career mode for as long as your heart contents.

Championship mode

Players can race in 125cc, 250cc and MotoGP championships from the 2009 and 2010 seasons as it unfolds. The realistic AI will emulate true racing pack with different riding styles and pace making this a challenging mode for all GP fans.

Arcade

Players must show off there skill to stay in the race as they complete to finish a whole season in 125, 250 or MotoGP class before running out of time. Each lap, clean section, overtake and top speed reached will reward players with more time but crashing off the track or getting overtaken will cause time to be deducted from your total and your chances of living the MotoGP dream will be over.

Online

Compete against other riders across the globe, in online multiplayer mode.

Demo

A demo was announced to be released on the Xbox Live Marketplace about 1 month before release which would give it a release of February. The demo will consists of a stripped down Championship Mode which is limited to the 125cc class and the Mugello Circuit. It also contains the 600cc Moto2 Arcade Mode and the 800cc MotoGP Time Trial mode[2]. The demo was released on March 4th 2010 on the Xbox 360 and PS3.[3]

Downloadable content

Capcom announced two free DLC packs to be released sometime after the game's release[4].

The first pack will contain the 800cc bike class with all of the bike, rider and team liveries, as well as the brand new tracks for the 2010 MotoGP season, the new Silverstone Arena Circuit and Balatonring in Hungary.

The second pack will include all of the bike, rider and team livery updates for the 600cc and 125cc bike class, giving players brand new MotoGP 2010 data far earlier than ever before.

Reception

GameZone's Michael Lafferty gave the game a 6.5 out of 10, saying "While the controls can seem a bit touchy at times, the actual racing animations feel stiff and not as fluid as they should be. Sure, these are big bikes and metal doesn’t bend that well, but there were times when it just felt as though the game was on a rail. That said, for those who like racing games and motorcycles, MotoGP 09/10 has a robust racing package that should sate appetites."[5]
