Nothing new? Apart from physics redone from scratch, more bikes, more riders....I mean what "new" things would you want to justify paying full price? (genuinely curious)

You know you can always wait for a sale and get it cheaper in about 6 months after release?!!
Exactly, it reads like a DLC package. Apart from the physics, that should've and could've easily been added to the first release as a update.

Willing to hear how you think it's justifiable to release another game and make one of the key points is new and improved physics (apparently)?

If it was just the new bikes and riders (and tracks?) I'd sort of agree, but not the physics overhaul. If it's as good as they promise (and I hope) then that's a large undertaking of effort by the devs. It's not like they've "tweaked" the tyre model a bit, they are fundamentally changing the physics engine to actually be based around 2 wheels and not 4 (like the previous game). That will make it a whole new game for me personally. I'll still wait for reviews/trusted opinions from around the web before I buy.

No-one is making you buy it full price, like I say if it's on Steam then it WILL be on sale at some point and be at a price point equivalent to DLC.

So yes for me the "fundamentally" changed physics (if it turns out to be true) justifies full price for me. They arn't just "improving" what is there from the first game, all the physics from the first game are hopefully in the bin.

Been playing the 1st one since it's free on xbox live and it's not half bad. Nice enough graphics and the bikes handle well enough.
TT super bikes in 2005 was entirely on the isle of man for Ps2 : ) it was amazing ! I cannot wait I hope it will have vr support !

Wow, that's one hell of a revelation right there. So your saying they made probably biggest mistake you could possibly do for a bike-sim and used a flawed physics engine to begin with. Anyone with the slightest bit of knowledge in this area knows you can't properly adapt car physics to a bike sim/mod. It's been attempted many times in the past and i'm yet to see it successfully pulled off. No wonder many punters felt ripped off with the first title.

Your right. I don't need to purchase it. I'll happily sit back and see how this title unfolds upon release. Cheers for the heads up, Damage.

yup, the bikes handle like cars when over the edge of grip, lock the front, the bikes slide the front end and you stay upright, rear end grip loss was woefull as well. I'm certain I saw someone post hacked physics files that referred to 4 wheels in places.

I still loved the first game though.....that why I'm cautiously optimistic for the 2nd, because if the physics can convey at least something of controlling a bike then I do believe it will be awesome. :) fingers crossed!

To those that purchased the first game, I tend to believe there should a option where this is available to those punters as a DLC at half price. As there nothing new jumping out at us, even using the same game engine if i'm not mistaken?
I agree, frankly I'm surprised they have the cheek to try & rip people off for a second time.
I own all of "Milestones" bike games & really thought the first game was going to be epic, it broke my heart to find it was actually a steaming pile of dirge seemingly developed by people that have absolutely no clue what it's like to ride a motorcycle.
They should at the very least release a serious demo of the game pre-release, say Douglas to Ramsey just to show all of us that got stung before that they listened & have fixed what sucked.

I honestly believe that Kylloton should be closely followed. They have been inspiring to see how they've been improving theire craft on all fronts to now. Good to know they have rally future on they re hands.

Maybe now that Codemasters owns the SMS engine they can start to present us with some finally needed decent and natural physics.
