Another video game conjured me up. Now it’s for a motorcycle racing game titled Tourist Trophy. The first time I saw this game, it’s about the slogan –The real riding simulator-. Sounds familiar right? Yeah it was similar as Gran Turismo slogan –the real driving simulator- just difference in word ‘riding and driving’. It makes me assured about this game. I expect this game same as the famous Gran Turismo series. And the important is this is a motorcycle racing game, haha :D you know what? I prefer riding than driving. Ok, now I’ll bring you to the review or first impression when I play this game.
Tourist Trophy is a motorcycle racing game designed by Polyphony Digital, the same team that makes the famous Gran Turismo series (no wonder the slogans is very similar hehe). This game released on 2006 (Yes, I’m late to know this game :D).
This game has offered a broad range of modern motorcycle, including scooters, enduro, Motard, sportbikes and naked bikes, as well as modified versions. Featuring more than 35 courses and more than 100 motorcycle from famous manufacturer including Yamaha, Honda, BMW, Ducati, and Suzuki. Nice huh? Unfortunately, some of bikes looks old-fashioned (maybe in a row with the year of released).
The gameplay absolutely follow the Gran Turismo rule. This game has offered perfect handling and rider perspective. There are two modes, Arcade mode and TT mode. For Arcade mode it’s like a free riding, you can choose the bike and course freely. And for TT mode just like a career mode.
The courses, bikes, rider, crashes, it’s all good enough. I feel a real riding simulator in my console :D. Maybe just the dashboard views that need improvement.

Hopefully, they’ll make the sequel with new bikes, new courses and better graphics for the dashboard. :D
