“No previous major motocross game has ever let you really feel the weight of the bike like this, and trajectory management has never been so important for achieving a good time, or even for overtaking an opponent without ending up face-down in the dirt.”

Great game. It offers a great sense of realism and really challenges your abilities while still being great for any beginner. Not that I need to mention it, but the graphics are quite amazing as well. Sounds are okay. They aren't the best in the world, but they will do. The career mode is fairly in depth and you can tweak just about every setting on your bike which is very nice.

The only issue I am experiencing right now is the sound cutting off about 30 minutes in causing me to restart the game (onboard Realtek 7.1). I experienced the same bug in the demo. I still definitely recommend the game for any enthusiastic racer.

UPDATE1: There is one thing that absolutely BUGS me about this game and it totally kills the realism for me. Devs, if you are reading this, please for the love of God FIX THE START GATE! This whole "ready, steady, start" crap is so annoying. You guys just need to make it where you get the 30 second warning board turned sideways and just drop the gate randomly (2-10 seconds) and if you go too soon you get stuck at the gate. This is not a game killer for me, but for a game that is striving for realism, I can't believe you guys could mess this up.

Also, a possible workaround for the sound bug for me seems to be changing the "voices number" to 32 instead of 64. So far it is working, I'll update this review if I discover that it didn't fix it.

UPDATE2: Changing the "voices number" did not fix the problem.

Coming from an ex amateur Motocross racer and a huge fan of all moto games alike, I have to say this is the game I have been waiting for. It can be a mild arcade racer for those of you that just want a fun moto game, while the vets and fans of real riding will love the Sim aspect of the game once you put the difficulty and assists to realistic. The game is pretty much MX Sim with better graphics than alive and the dual stick controls we love from reflex. The career is very realistic and has timed practice as well as qualifying with every race on the career, then like real Motocross you will do a moto 1 and moto 2 to see who gets the points for the weekend. The AI will keep you on the edge until the checkered flag, you never know when someone is going to ♥♥♥♥♥ past you or show a wheel in a turn. Real racers, real tracks, real sponsors, real everything. Best moto game in years and a must buy to any fan of the sport. 9/10

Coming from a pretty seasoned MX Sim & MX VS ATV player & experienced MX rider I thought I'd give my 2 cents.

PRO's:

Real sponsors & bikes.
Real tracks.
Real riders.
Track deformation.
Cornering feels great. Sliding it into a tight turn and powering out feels better than any other mx game out there.
Throttle control. Again, using throttle control to kick the back end out is wonderful.
First person actually looks & feels good.
Actually needing to brake.
The game looks nice...just about. Bike models look amazing, well done.
Pretty in depth career mode, & 1st one for a long time.
Customisation of the bike settings before a race is great.
Practice/Qualifying formats.
And finally well done Milestone for a simultaneous PC release!

CON's

Physics in the air feel awful & clunky.
Ready Steady Go start format? Is this Mario Kart? Should just drop the gate & the clutch...(see next point).
Theres no clutch!!??? Massive negative here.....
Why can't I control the whip/♥♥♥♥♥? Don't animate such an important feature!! Doesn't feel fluid or natural.
Track deformation doesn't make a difference to handling.
Ruts and berms don't feel supportive & I feel like cross rutting isn't an issue, even late in a race.
Spin outs and wheelies can feel random at times.
No rev sound on the start gate & in the air?? Get that stuff recorded and implement it!! Basic stuff there...
Rear brake & panic rev doesn't do much in the air.
Why make 250F's unable to clear most jumps? They're pretty much as fast as a 450F irl, sometimes out qualifying them.

Summary.

To be fair, on the ground at least MXGP feels great. Cornering is good, feedback feels great, the rider positioning and animations are spot on and you can make this engine look good once you have got it down. But the clunky whip/♥♥♥♥♥ feature and the lack of rev sounds brings you literally crashing back down to earth with a bang.

The career mode is deep and rewarding, although I get the impression a few things could have been pushed a little more. I guess not being able to choose which clothing brand I wear is due to clothing being tied to some teams & manufacturers with it being official sponsors and all. But it just feels like some design choices could have been implemented a little better.

I love mx games, and will buy them regardless to support the industry. We need developers to keep making these games so it pushes them further. If Milestone release an MXGP 2, or MXGP 2015 or whatever its called, I think it will be great, but this one just falls short of a great title.

5.5/10 imho.

Another great motorsports title from Milestone. You can expect the same game modes and user interface as previous titles. But if it aint broke, dont fix it, right? The feel of racing the dirt bikes is excellent and will surely please any racing game fan out there.

A quick tutorial gets you flinging dirt in no time.

FYI - I'm not really into motocross or supercross, but this game is a lot of fun regardless of any of that.

PS - Kimi Raikkonens MX1 team is in here "ICE ONE"

While more of a simcade than anything, MXGP is a must own for any MX fans out there. While far from perfect, MXGP tries to aim for a slightly more realistic approach to MX racing via realistic cornering and braking physics, but falls short with poor jumping physics and poor bike sounds. A CONTROLLER IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Pros:

+ 14 Real world tracks to choose from

+ Realistic cornering and braking

+ Authentic racing experience (Real tracks, bikes, teams and riders)

+ Good graphics

+ Bike tuning (though somewhat limited in terms of options) actually affects the way bikes behave

+ Decent AI (15 AI riders supported in offline play)

+ Intense multiplayer races see players banging bars as they fight for the perfect lines (12 players supported)

+ Mo-capped rider animations look awesome

+ Realistic helmet cam view (if that's your kind of thing)

Cons:

- Horrible bike sounds (what is this, Excitebike?)

- Poor jumping physics (lack of mid-air control/no gas gyro effects)

- ♥♥♥♥♥bing seems rather mechanical and automated (players are only required to push both sticks in the same direction near the lip/takeoff of a jump which requires no real skill and uses the same animation over and over)

- Track deformation is mostly cosmetic (players cannot physically ride in ruts formed on the track)
[*edit* after 5+ laps, corners are harder to take due to braking ruts/bumps forming, however bikes ride 'on top' of the dirt as opposed to 'in it' thus resulting in mounds forming in corners as opposed to ruts which players can ride in for better traction.]

- Relatively steep price (although not gameplay related)


Still highly recommend picking this game up as it breathes fresh air into the MX racing genre, providing countless hours of fun on tracks which are easy to learn but hard to master (and pays off if you do). The game has good AI for those who wish to play offline, but online play is where this game truly shines. Despite the games efforts of providing an authentic MXGP experience, a track editor would have been a nice touch.

TL;DR
Great MX game which is a step in the right direction, with room for improvement. If/when improved, could easily be one of the best MX racing games out there. 8/10
