MotoGP (Nokia N-Gage review)

Developer: THQ Wireless
Publisher: Nokia
Released: 2003

MotoGP is a motorcycle racing game and the only Nokia N-Gage title developed by THQ Wireless.

+ You can create and save your own tracks, and the editor is very intuitive / easy-to-use.

- Frame-rate is atrocious, and when it dips to low single digits as soon as each race starts you know you're in for a rough time. 

- The dreadful frames-per-second also affects the controls, as severe under/over-steer plagues the entire game.

- While you can race from several perspectives, the first-person camera is vomit inducing due to the afformentioned performance issues.

- Even at full throttle, there's little sense of speed and it feels like everything is crawling along at all times.

- The graphics are a pixelated mess and many of the drab track-side environments have barely any texture details.

- SFX when cornering is akin to grinding metal and the music does nothing to enhance or compliment the action.
