    Agreed. Milestone are playing to the gallery though. Mass market appeal. The MotoGP licence is their cash cow and I think they will continue to milk it. The trend with their games is a downward difficulty curve.

    Only time will tell. In the meantime we've got this amazing TT game, which came out of the blue as as far I'm concerned, and which will keep me occupied for a very long time indeed.

    My experience of the event has been limited to highlight DVDs so I was curious about your statement. A quick internet search led me to these disturbing stats on Wikipedia(the graph shows the number of rider deaths for each year). I've always assumed there was a certain risk of bodily harm (and to ones mortality), but if these numbers are correct they're quite depressing. I can understand not wanting to return."Air of menace" might just be an understatement. Looming specter of death seems more apropos.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those people who want to see road racing censored. It is pure motorsport where the riders dance the line between glory and mortality. Nobody forces them to do it and they don't do it for our entertainment, they do it for themselves.

    If you haven't seen it, may I suggest the film "Road". It's about road racing in general but in particular it follows the Dunlop family. NW200 2008 250cc. I will say no more.

    Thank you for the recommendation, fortunately the film is currently streaming on Netflix. I am familiar with the Dunlop family history, but to hear from those involved is particularly quite powerful. Overall the documentary is exceptionally well made and provides an unbiased, unflinching look at both sides of the road racing coin, capturing both the euphoria and tragedies.

    So it seems the patch has now been released for Xbox... I haven't tried it yet but I spotted it as I was about to close down my console last night. It downloaded in a flash though so must have been very small. I hope to give it a try out later tonight after work.

    Sadly I deleted the game , after the new patch for ps4 pro the game had a kind of two modus if I may it call it that way .
    One as it is most of the time in the game where the feeling of the bike is heavy and always a bit late when I want to turn left or right , each bump in the road can provoke the bike the fall , and going off throttle when turning could let you fall to, the second one without changing anything in the game setup ( that pops up for no reason ) I call it the arcade modus where you could matter of speaking close your eyes and be seconds faster with each sector that comes on your pad that it even became ridiculous when I come at almost the end of sector seven and be 12 seconds faster what I normally don't do in heavy modus .
    In this way there is no fun to complete the IOM lap .
    Up to the next game adventure have fun .

    I've been looking for this on Netflix tonight but can't find it anywhere. A search for road brings up everything but :/

    I was able to add it to my watch list via the i-pad app. Try searching with "isle of man".

    But free sidecars dlc is coming next month.

    With regard to the latest patch; curiosity got the better of me so I unpatched the game to see the difference and didn't really notice anything substantial. It pretty much feels and plays the same as far as I can tell.

    With regard to falls provoked by bumps in off-throttle situations: there is an onboard video of Horst with commentary as he does the lap and at one point he says that he has to keep the throttle open over the bumps because it stabilises the bike. It makes sense because shutting the throttle off shifts the weight slightly towards the front so if you hit a bump that can very easily make you lose the rear.

    Anyway, I'm still massively enjoying the game and finding it incredibly challenging and rewarding. The only other games that provide me with a comparable challenge are Dirt Rally and AC.

    Cheers buddy. Unfortunately for whatever reason that does not come up on Netflix for me. I have tried searching for 'Road' and 'Isle of Man' and neither brings the desired result. I'll keep trying though or else i'll grab it via some other medium.

    If memory serves me the opening credits indicate that the film is a BBC production. Perhaps they have a streaming or on demand service.

    Road is available on YouTube; it costs £2.49.

    I prefer the game post patch. I know what Sven meant about the "heavier" handling and I prefer it. It seems more consistent and I'm no longer suffering random crashes. When I bin it now I know and understand my mistake.

    I'm playing the supersports TT now as opposed to time attack. I can do two laps no problem but keeping the concentration for 4 clean fast laps has so far evaded me. Plenty of game left then.

    Superbikes for six laps for the Senior TT? I'm a long way off that yet.
