  1. Picked this up on steam. 
    Graphics on default were were very unimpressive but once I jacked them up to 4k and ultra the game looked real good. Frame rate was smooth as well. 
    As as far as the controls didn’t feel much different than 17 but in all fairness I haven’t played 17 for a while so I might have forgotten how it controls.
    did my first full weekend in career and it was pretty fun and there’ is some cool presentation elements. 
    All in all my early impression is it’s a real good game and the best MotoGP to date but I’m not sure how much clout it holds because the bar wasn’t that high and 18 isn’t reinventing the wheel it’s just a real polished version of previous iterations and tthats not a bad thing. 
    If if I had to score it I’d give it a 8/10 . Glad I bought it.
    Although not a groundbreaking game this is the biggest step in the franchise for a long while. 
    The visuals, particularly the bikes, are impressive, even more so with a 4K/HDR TV. 
    The bikes have a lot more weight to them than in previous iterations & handle more consistently.
    Presentation is better with some nice little touches such as displaying the names of the track sections while racing & new podium sequences.
    I haven’t had any time with Career/Online Modes but I’ve seen enough to feel this is definitely worth a look for racing fans.
    I also like the track corner names and podium additions.
    Biggest thing for me is the physics.....Seems like I can use the throttle to help turn the bike...very cool.
    I'm early into the career mode....still in red bull class.....seems good so far.
