With six different styles of gameplay, MotoRacer 3
is probably the most definitive version of Motocross to date. You start out with one track for each mode. As you start placing in races or earning high marks, you collect points which allow you unlock tracks that are more difficult by ''purchasing'' them from the shop. Street mode is just the basic ''race against the best.'' Personally, this one is not too special, and the challenge gets tiring. However, you do get to race in the top Motorbike tracks in the world. Motocross and Supercross builds on the race concept, but it adds the extra rush of dirt and an unleveled plain. Trial involves obstacle courses that you must complete in specific amounts of time. Each Trial track has five sub-courses that work on a different aspect of your bikes precision and carefulness. The Freestyle mode is obviously MotoRacer
's answer to stunt gaming. Utilizing various keystrokes, you control your biker as he attempts and performs jump stunts that if attempted in real life would probably cause a man severe back pain for years. The last mode, and my personal favorite, is Traffic. This mode pits you against one other biker as you weave through the streets of Paris dodging buses, cars, and roadwork. It is definitely an adrenaline rush waiting to happen.
You also have the option to customize your vehicle in most modes. You can change the tire size, shock capacity, transmission, and power until you have a vehicle completely your own.
Modes also come ready in Friendly and Practice modes, which when played, do not add to your shopping points. A multiplayer-online option is also available.
In almost all the tracks and modes, I found the believability of a real motorbike race truly stunning throughout. This game does not feel like a miniaturized car racer. It is motorbike to its fullest.
