The year 2023 is already here and with that a lot of new video games have come too, and even more are supposed to come out, let’s see what we have to look forward to. Now is a great time to start looking at which games you should watch out for when they finally release or the ones that already have released. We decided to help you with this daunting task and make a list of the best motorcycle games for 2023. Let’s take a look at this list.
1. TT Isle of Man 2
TT Isle of Man first released 2 years ago, in 2018, and it was a game focused on bike racing. The player could choose from a wide variety of motorcycles and race against other players, both offline and online, with up to 8 players being in one match. TT Isle of Man 2 is the sequel we’ve all been waiting for, you can expect everything the first installment brought to the table and much more.
Not that many people might be familiar with the name, but Isle of Man is an infamous racing track that has been used for racing and it’s known for causing a lot of accidents and deaths, so it definitely isn’t a place for beginners. We are still waiting to hear more about TT Isle of Man 2, but what we’re certain about is that the developers from Kylotonn are going to give us much better visuals and making the gameplay even better than before.
2. Ride 3
If you’re someone who likes variety and fun, Ride 3 is the perfect game for you. You actually have over 270 bikes to choose from and you can get them onto 30 different racing tracks all over the world. You can also choose from different Supermoto and GP tracks, to interesting city and countryside roads, so you not only get to race on tracks but you can also take a relaxing ride in the countryside. Now the most interesting part about this game is that you can actually customize your bikes, so you can build your own garage and make the suit your tastes.
There several different game modes, the best is probably being the career mode, this is where you race against AI racers and by beating them you earn points and unlock more motorcycles and tracks. You also never feel like you’re doing the same thing twice, there is a lot of variety, mixing up the types of bikes, race tracks and race types.
3. MotoGP 20
Do you consider yourself a big MotoGP fan? Well then this game was specifically designed for you, in this installment you can find every single rider, track and motorcycle you saw in the 2023 MotoGP Championship, and of course you can also find riders of old, the legends that used to rule over the tracks and from past games like MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3 and the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, this game will definitely scratch that GP itch.
The best and most interesting game mode is probably the career mode which enables you to compete in the Moto3, Moto2, Red Bull Rookies’ Cup and MotoGP. You create your own personal racer and off you go, onto the tracks. We recommend you start off with the Rookies’ Cup, since you will find it much easier and use that opportunity to make your racer better and upgrade his skills. But not only that you also need to upgrade your bike, as you progress and win you get points which you use to upgrade your motorcycle.
4. Valentino Rossi: The Game
This one is a bit older and strays away from the usual MotoGP formula by focusing on this man, the legend, Valentino Rossi. This game focuses on the story and how Valentino Rossi overcame everything in his life to become the best bike racer out there, which also makes this game much different from the usual MotoGP installment. You get to live through all the ups and downs of Rossi’s career, from past to present.
Even though this game sounds like it’s one-dimensional since it focuses solely on Rossi, it actually has a lot of variety to it, for instance you could be racing in Brno and in the next you will be at the Monza Rally in a rally car, now true that isn’t a bike, but it’s all part of a great package. There’s also a career mode where you get to join the VR46 Riders Academy, and you get to race on a MotoRanch track on a dirt bike, which you would think you would never see in a MotoGP video game.
5. Trials Evolution
This one isn’t your usual racing game, well actually I don’t know if you can even call it a racing game but it definitely is a motorcycle game. Trials Evolution has an insane amount of hard obstacle courses that are going to give you a hard but fun time. There is usually a time you need to beat, so beating the track as fast as you can without making any mistakes is paramount.
As is usual with obstacles games, as you progress in the game each obstacles track gets harder and harder, on some tracks you will see yourself doing hundreds upon hundreds of attempts just to get off this perfect jump to get that perfect time. All this can be very annoying and frustrating but when you do manage to do that difficult jump it makes it all the more worth it and it feels amazing when you do it.
The background of this game is very different from the usual racing game too, it’s very much fictional and interesting to look at, ranging from all kinds of environments and interesting courses. This game is for people who don’t like giving up and are persistent at what they do.
