MotoGP 2 for Windows 8 recreates the excitement of high-speed MotoGP racing on some of the world's top racing circuits while competing against the world's top riders and other online racers. MotoGP racing is possibly the world's most exciting type of racing that exists. That said, most people never will have the chance to swing a leg over a high-performance MotoGP bike. The next best thing is the MotoGP 2 software programs for Windows 8 users. It recreates the feel and excitement of battling it out on the world's MotoGP race courses without the inherent danger and high cost.

Windows 8 users can download free software trials of MotoGP 2and compete against the clock, the computer and other live racers as well as the world's top 20 ranked MotoGP racers. Valentino Rossi, Colin Edwards, Jorge Lorenzo, Ben Spies, Marc Marquez, Nicky Hayden and other top riders have computer-controlled likenesses that recreate each rider's racing style and bike. Users can race against their favorite riders, create racing teams and run their computer-generated bikes at real-time speeds exceeding 200 mph.

The new MotoGP 2 provides stunning new graphics that greatly improve upon the original version and help riders to feel the excitement of real MotoGP racing on some of their favorite tracks from around the world. The new version enables riders to better control the amount of front and rear braking while racing, which makes for a more authentic recreation of the real event while adding another texture to help separate the good racers from the great racers. That also enables greater stunt riding, such as stoppies, to make the game more fun.

Up to 16 users can race against each other and the computer through online racing. That makes it much easier to create racing leagues and battle against each other for the title of MotoGP world champion while also competing against the world's top riders. Many genuine MotoGP race tracks painstakingly are recreated for an authentic feel and experience. Racers can modify their bikes and adjust settings to improve riding performance, and riders also compete for pole positions before each race. The authentic feel makes for a great gaming experience with only few drawbacks.

Users generally find the controls difficult to figure out at first, but most master them with a couple hours of practice. Once competent with the controls, racers can compete on their favorite MotoGP courses against the world's top riders and other online users. The game does a great job of recreating the physical changes that impact riders and their bikes while traversing the top race courses. Failure to adjust lean angles, braking points and speeds will send riders careening off the tracks. Overall, the new MotoGP 2 is a terrific game for Windows 8 users.
