TAKE IT ALL IN: There is no challenge quite like MotoGP

'(NINE) Season 2009' sounds like a bit of a clunky title, but its content will be sure to thrill. Players can re-live the awesome season of racing with a real docu-film narrated by Mark Neale that includes more than 50 minutes of original footage from that season.

There is more than that though, as players will be thrown into challenges to re-live the most iconic moments. You'll don the helmet of Rossi, Pedrosa, Stoner, and Lorenzo to try and replicate history!

What else is new?

There is also a revised tutorial system to help new players, and a MotoGP Academy to bring players up to speed in smoother way.

New players will also benefit from a new Adaptive Difficulty System that will help players find the right settings and pop-up to suggest changes.
