MXGP - The Official Motocross Videogame is a motocross racing simulation game developed by Milestone S.r.l. In MXGP you start your career as a wildcard and work your way through MX2 and MX1 championships until you can rise to the top of the leaderboard. As you get better and perform well through the season you'll get offers from better teams and you'll have a much wider selection than the handful of teams you can pick as a wildcard. As well as the career mode there's also Instant Race, Grand Prix, Championship, Time Trial and Multiplayer game modes.

+Great graphics
+Realistic physics
+Interesting control scheme (Gamepad) where one stick is used to steer the bike while the other is used to control how your rider is leaning
+You compete against 15 other riders across 14 real tracks
+The 60 riders and 60 bikes featured in the game are all real
+Winning/competing earns you EXP which levels you up, levelling up unlocks new rider portraits and helmets
+In career mode you can skip stages you don't want to play, for example you can go straight to qualifying if you don't want to do any practice laps
+Quite a few different teams, each with their own bike livery and outfit
+Your team sets you goals which you have to complete in order to stay with said team which adds extra challenge to the game

+/-The multiplayer is pretty dead, personally I don't care since I only play Singleplayer in racing games but I know this is a big deal for a lot of people

-The game does not take kindly to Alt+Tab, it will always freeze the game if not your whole PC
-Not a major issue but the mouse can't be used to navigate the menus
-The tutorials only feature Gamepad bindings so they're useless if you wish to play with KB&M
-The KB&M controls are absolutely awful but that's to be expected from a racing game
-The bike sounds aren't great, i.e. they don't sound realistic

Worth Purchasing (7.5/10)

MXGP is a good motocross racing sim with great graphics, realistic physics, an interesting control scheme and licensed bikes, riders and tracks. If you're a fan of motocross or you're interested in getting into it you can't go wrong with this game.

History & Overview
-Released in 2014
-Developed and published by Milestone and distributed by Bandai Namco Games
-Released on PC, PS3, PS4, PS VITA, and Xbox360
-Standard Racing Affair

In MXGP it's your typical standard racing affair but just with a lot more mud and dirt thrown in.

The game has a number of different standard modes to choose from, including an instant race mode which basically randomly selects a track and rider for you, and you simply race.

As well as a “Grand Prix” mode which let's you pick a rider or your own created one, a track, and race.
A “championship” mode which let's you pick a rider or your own, select tracks and make your customized season to race for and championship to win.

A time attack mode, which is pretty self explanatory that let's you race for the best time on any given track.
As well as online multiplayer, but as of this recording it's pretty much dead sadly, so this review will be based purely on the single player content of the game.

But the core aspect to the single player of the game itself is the “Career mode” which let's you use a customized character of your very own, select a team to race for and represent, and build your very own fan-base.

Each time you compete in a race your rewarded with experience that unlocks you new gear as well as “fans” that comment on how you did on a race via a weird mock twitter thing...

But is any of this any good?

The Good
-Standard racing game with solid mechanics
-Real world mechanics, brands, and riders
-Decent controls with a bit of a learning curve

Growing up personally I was pretty fond of games such as the “MX vs ATV” series, so when I was offered the chance to review MXGP I jumped on the idea naturally because of this.

MXGP is brought to us by the same cats behind the “MotoGP” franchise and where as games such as MX vs ATV go for more of an arcade approach to off-road racing, MXGP aims for a much more grounded and pure racing focused approach with solid mechanics backing it.

Controlling your bike definitely has a learning curve to it, you'll need to know how to approach each jump, and you use both analog sticks to shift your weight with the bike as you ride and it feels really responsive once you wrap your head around the controls themselves, the first few times I raced I fell plenty of times not knowing I actually had to shift my weight and use both analog sticks.

I personally played on the default settings of the game with the default assisted control settings as I'm pretty rusty when it comes to off-road style racing games, but the game does offer the option to completely disable all the control assists and adjust them as you wish for all the purists out there.

What MXGP does best is that it offers a more real world approach to Motocross racing and with real world mechanics, everything from the physics of the bike itself and shifting your weight with it, to how you land from jumps, turn corners, to the tracks being being based off real world locations with plenty of different tracks to choose from, to the teams utilizing real world brands, and racing against real world drivers.

But sadly it doesn't do much in the way of standing out or being interesting for very long... So let's discuss why with...

The Bad
-No tricks?
-No real in-depth customization
-Not much variety and tons of game padding

One of the reasons why I loved games such as the MX vs ATV series was doing all the fantastic tricks that you could pull off, sadly MXGP features none of that.

The most trick related thing you'll even be doing in MXGP is whipping or scrubbing your bike to aim for a better landing in between slopes, as I said previously MXGP aims for a more grounded and racing focused experience, which I guess is what the actual MXGP competition is, but none the less I was kinda disappointed by this.

Next up the game doesn't offer much in customization, when you're creating your character you basically pick a pre-created display picture for him who's probably just random developer, select a nationality, make a name, and pick a number...

That's really about it, but then again character customization in a racing game isn't a huge deal obviously, but this also extends to your bike as well, outside of adjusting the control assists or your bikes technical aspects, you have no real aesthetic customization to your bike itself which is also pretty disappointing.

But probably my biggest issue is the massive amounts of padding in the career mode itself, you basically go to your calender, select your next race, set up your settings, you can do a practice run to wrap your head around the track, then you can do qualifying race, all of this you can skip of course.

Then you finally race.... Then you race again... Maybe this is how it works in the actual MXGP but by the time you've done all this you've basically raced this same track a good 4 times and spent a good 15 to 20 minutes with it.
Then you come back to your garage-thing, read your email for potential teams or sponsors, and read your twitter thing.
Then you select your next race event and do it all over again.

By the end of it all after racing every event, the game then just simply tells you to do it all over again but with a different class of bikes and slightly improved AI, the exact same tracks, in the exact same order.
To which I just simply responded “No” after having already sunk 8 hours or so into this game.

But now let's discuss,

The Ugly
-Looks bland, nothing really impressive
-Muddy tracks being torn up as you race is kinda cool
-Locked at 30fps
-Clipping issues, bugs, and crashes
-No licensed music or soundtrack while racing
-Over all presentation is somewhat bland

Where we discuss the graphics, technical aspects, soundtrack, and general presentation of the game.

Over all MXGP is fairly bland looking considering this is a 2014 release and doesn't offer much in the way of visuals nor will it be any bit taxing on your system by any means, the tracks themselves are based on real world locations and look decent enough and the track itself having the dirt torn up by bikes as you race is pretty neat to see.

However what's not so neat to see was my frame rate counter being locked at 30, I don't see any valid reason for a racing game of all things to be locked at 30fps, especially on PC.

The game also suffers from some clipping issues as you fall from your bike the odd time, as well as some other bugs and the odd rare crash I had happen once or twice during my 8 or so hours with it.

As for the soundtrack side of things, the game is completely devoid of any licensed music or soundtrack outside of the main menu music which is generic guitar stuff, so as your racing you'll basically just hear the wonderful sounds of dirt-bike engines.

And all over the presentation for MXGP is just extremely bland, everything from the lifeless career mode and fake twitter social media thing, to the lack of music as you race, the only thing that even stood out to me was the massive amounts of in-game Monster Energy advertisements.

Final Thoughts

Over all MXGP certainly feels like a budget title and doesn't do much to convince you otherwise.
It's a competent racing game with nice mechanics going for it but it doesn't do much in the way to stand out from the rest and I still ONLY recommend if it if you're big into MX racing or off-road racing games in general.

Although this game has a few flaws it's still the best motorcross game I've ever played. MXGP is not a game where you pull off insane tricks or jump off giant cliffs. MXGP is a recreation of real MX racing and it does this fairly well.


+ There are multiple game types - Instant race, Grand Prix, Championship season, Career Mode and Time attack. It has recreated tracks from real tracks on the MX tour. The tracks also have track deformation of the dirt and mud. There seams to be a lot of tracks as well. I'm not real far into it but the season I'm in has at least a dozen to complete.

+ Multiple difficulties that can be tweaked to make MXGP as easy/arcade or Hard/Simulation as you prefer.

+ The physics and handling of the motorcycles are done very well. No other MX game has gotten this close to the feeling of riding a real MX bike. (yes I have ridden on real MX bikes and street bikes as well)

+The replays look good and have multiple options like slow motion, pause and a free cam. You can get some nice screenshots.

+ Graphics are solid. The riders and the bikes look good and gather dirt and mud on them during the race. The tracks are pretty good too but could have been done better. I use SweetFX on this game and it makes it look better.

+You can remap the controls on the controller. I recommend you use a controller. I don't know of any racing game that work well with mouse and keyboard. At least not for me. I recommend that you change the lean forward and backwards to the same stick as steering left and right. It feels much more natural this way.

+You level up, unlock pictures, gear, bikes ect and you get more fans the better you do in each race. Also there is a simulated email and twitter type media in the game that makes tyou feel you are being watched by teams, fans and your manager. It's a nice touch to give a sense of progression and connection in the game.


- The presentation is pretty bad. In between races I've had my bike disappear in the pits. The pit crew guy is working on an imaginary, invisible bike. Also before a race, during the intro scene, my rider was shaking around like he was have convultions. The pit crew and girl who holds the starting card all look and act like zombies. Why even put these in the game ? Also, Some of the ground during races has pop in and loads textures too. The game needs a patch to fix these things.

- The sound is not very good either. The bikes just sound weak, why can't developers get this right ? Even if it's not realistic they need to alter the engine sounds to make them more rich and intense. Also, There is no option to play music during races, it would be nice to have. I noticed there is barely any sounds of the stadium surroundings happening. It would be great to have the crowd react to what is happening. Cheer when you overtake or respond to a big wreck. Make the game and the race feel exciting Milestone ! Enough with the barebones, boring presentation already !

Also a track announcer being heard over the PA system would add some immersion. Having your pit crew tell you your doing great or you have 1 lap to go would really add some interaction to the game. These things could have be easily added into the game and would make the game better. On my PC the sound cuts in and out during start videos but no real problem in game so far. I've seen that many people have had problems in game though. Patch these things into the game Milestone.

Overall the game just feels kind of bland. This happed in other games by Milestone. I loved the racing and handling in MotoGP 08 but it has the same barebones presentaion and sound as well. Milestone get the racing right, and that is what is most important, but they need to add some flavor and style into these games. As for now I will enjoy MXGP for what it is but there is definately room for improvement.

MXGP, the official motocross videogame. This is a good simulation of the real motocross event and how the bike handles. You can play as the official riders and race on the real world motocross tracks. Also, you get bikes like KTM, Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Tm (I don't remember the last manufacturer). In Career mode, you start as a wildcard rider and if you are good enough, you'll move up to the MX1 class. The riding physics are good, and it is somewhat newbie-friendly. It will take a while to get used to the handling of the bike, and the AI (on easy they can be a challenge if you are new to the game).

One drawback is you can't turn off the controller vibration. This is pretty annoying, especially for someone who doesn't like to play with vibration (like me). The multiplayer? There's almost no one playing there, but it doesn't bother me.

If you are planning to get this game, I suggest that you get a controller first. You'll have a hard time playing using the keyboard. If you like racing or sports games, I would recommend this game. It's a pretty fun game overall.
