GP Bikes on Steam is a pure motorcycle simulation title that dares to create its own path of motorcycle racing perfection.
Something different in the form of GP Bikes on Steam has to have a spotlight shined upon it, motorcycle simulation at its very best is being developed and in early access. I will not shy away from the fact that I am a massive fan of motorcycle racing and owning such machines in the past has been a massive surge of adrenaline. The gaming industry as such has tried to captivate so many genres of motorsport within its titles, and year upon year, release after release, we wonder why we bother to spend the money just for another re skined game and our favorite racers telling us it’s the best yet.
Well, the wool can only be pulled over our eyes so far, unless you are the ultimate fan boy. This is where GP Bikes comes into its own, it is not another motorcycle racing game that lacks innovation. For those who visit our site here at Simrace247, you will know that Sim Racing is the main topic and many aspects that come with it. GP Bikes is that racing game that dares to be different, and yet, gets it so right.
In the about section “GP Bikes is a realistic motorcycle simulator, based on a scratch built physics engine that accurately simulates motorcycle dynamics and setup options”. Now many will tell you that racing title XY and Z have the best of this and the best to get you hooked in, only to be disappointed with a casual WTF is this Shh moment. GP Bikes straight off the bat nails it with its physics and motorcycle dynamics. Developer PIBoSO has created games in the past such as MX Bikes and kart Racing Pro with positive results and it looks like their latest creation will be the same.
You want chassis flex, you got it, you want a great tyre model, you got it, you want a skilled racing title on two wheels, look no further than GP Bikes. With other great motorcycle racing titles out there, GP Bikes is carving up its own path. It is well worth checking out, and a side note, it is still in early access.
