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.

Wow...I'm impressed. I raced motocross and did my fair share of freestyle and enduro for close to 12 years so I know a thing or 2 about motocross. That being said it's been a good decade since my glory days with my 2003 CR250R and video games is about as close as I can get to my favorite past time without winning the lottery so finding this game was a real treat, and very nice alternative to the super fun, but dated mx reflex. Anyway, the game handles and looks great IMO, im not a fan of the GP circuit but since this is the most authentic motocross game I'll take what I can get, and while I don't think a freestyle(tricks) mode is needed in a sim racer like this, i do wish it had a free ride mode(big jumps and whips). Like say a big open playground in Glamis Sand Dunes. That would have been the icing on the cake. They decided to go the racing only route and thats cool and all because they really focused on that one thing and really spit shined it. After playing this game im really hoping for a next gen sequel with a bit more content like free ride, enduro, and freestyle because I have really come to like the more weighted feel of the bike handling. Maybe im looking through rose shaded glasses but it really does feel quite authentic when it comes to the handling. I highly recommend this to any actual motocross racers/riders and/or fans in the room. Thumbs up!

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.

This is the best motocross game you're going to find. The graphics are fine if you don't pay any attention to the the generic looking "race fans" and other scenery. The controls(xbox controller) and physics are great, and it's fun to play right from the start.
The listed minimum requirements are pretty low, and I wonder if they would even push 30 FPS. I'm guessing the minimum should be more like "Core 2 Duo 3Ghz/GTX260 or equivalent". At 1080p the recommended specs probably get about 60-100 FPS, and more current hardware gets 100-200 FPS.

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.
