9. Valentino Rossi: The Game
Released in June 2016, Valentino Rossi: The Game is the official MotoGP 2016 game covering the season but with Rally and Motocross to keep the Motorsport fans engaged. That is a good thing, and while the new game has improved significantly over the previous titles such as MotoGP 15, there are still a few issues that need to be addressed especially physics, visuals and more importantly sound. Other than that, the game pays the perfect tribute to the legendary Valentino Rossi. The improvements are visible and the game has its fair share of entertainment enough to place it on our list of 2017 top racing games.
Platform: PS4, Xbox One, Windows
