This week's Critical Reception column, casting a glance across the overall online reaction to major recent releases, takes a look at the world of 2-wheeled motor racing with the recent release of Climax-developed, THQ-published MotoGP '06
for the Xbox 360.
The article notes: "GamesRadar's Andy Mahood raves about the game's audio and sound, particularly commenting: "The lush new HD visuals are postcard perfect and the dizzying sensation of speed you get as your Yamaha rockets up Laguna Seca's backstraight is enough to give your eyeballs windburn."
"The audio is just as sweet. Brit developer Climax Studios made sure that each bike emits its own signature engine note so you can now pick out that Honda or Ducati behind you without a backward glance.""
