JetMoto is a good PC conversion of a futuristic Playstation bike racing game of the same name, developed by now-defunct SingleTrac for Sony Interactive. Despite the futuristic setting, the game boasts a "true physics model", which quickly becomes apparent. The jetmotos handle much like bikes in the real world, and it will take you a while to get used to the inertia and friction effects. The tracks are all well-designed though very difficult – especially since you cannot stop at all without crashing. Even on the easiest mode, computer drivers are very hard to beat. This makes JetMoto ideal for racing experts, but frustrating for beginners.

There are many nice details that give JetMoto a lot of character. For example, each jetmoto is sponsored by a major company, and if you perform poorly you will have a hard time keeping your sponsor deal. The techno/rock music tracks are also much better than in most games of this type: they are loud, but not offensive. If you enjoy futuristic racing games in the same vein as the light cycles in Tron, you will have a lot of fun with JetMoto. If you have a Playstation, though, you should probably play the Playstation version instead for smoother gameplay and slightly better graphics. Highly recommended!
