Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great and unique way for you to get your hands on an early version of our game and help us make it even better. Be the first to see new content and features during the fine-tuning and tweaking phase of the game. We look forward to your constructive and valuable feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are targeting the full release in Summer 2015.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Early Access will have gameplay features and tracks come online as the game is being worked on. We plan to deliver new content updates every month. The full version will contain the career mode where you can unlock additional game modes, vehicles and parts. Furthermore, the full version will include more than 30 tracks, whereas the Early Access version will have less.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial Early Access build of the game includes:
- Career mode, Single race and multiplayer mode
- 17 tracks with high-res textures (we plan to add new tracks monthly)

- Upgrade parts for all vehicles
- More than 60 official riders”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We are going to scale the price with the amount of content available. So as more content is added, we will add to the cost incrementally. We hope that players will feel they paid the appropriate price at any given stage of the development.”

Early Access Review
Don't buy yet, will change review when updates and full release comes out, but for now..

- Just feels wrong, not like youre riding a bike.
- Camera feels wrong as well, camera gos to the side of bike when turning corners or jumping.
- Jumping just feels terrible, no auto correction to straigten out bike, if you turn in the air you will land sideways
- Somehow you cant crash even with the most awkward of landings.
- Terrain deform is almost non existant, THIS IS NEXT GEN ERA !! Let me do 100 laps and make deep ♥♥♥ ruts !!!!!
- Stop trying to make the 'Casual everyone can play game', you will lose most of your fan base.

- New Game Mx Vs Atv Game.
- 50cc are back again.
Thats all.

Just wait for full release and see what reviews are at that point, but judging from console versions this is going to be a huge miss.

Updated May 14 2015

Okay so first things first, this game is most definitely not finished, it really isn't, and the lack of some very glaring things reflects that.

But before I even cover it let's look at what this game is most definitely not: It is not MVA Unleashed, Untamed, Reflex or Alive. (Although to be fair, I never played Alive all that much on account of having stopped buying PS3 and XBox Games by 2011, not that it had a lot to offer in the first place). I have however played many hours of both Unleashed and Reflex, at least enough to master the Reflex system pretty well.

Let's also further establish that the nuances required to play this game literally require a controller, if you are trying to use anything else other than a bike prop controller from an arcade, you're honestly crazy. You cannot play this with a mouse and keyboard, (although to date the game does lack support for direct input controllers, probably because XInput is taking over and is easy to code as well as being supported on most newer controllers). You have no Rider reflex on keyboard.

Okay now that that's been established... the actual gameplay.

Well it's clearly a beta, a couple features such as whips (which you can still do they just don't register as a stunt) are missing, and the graphics settings cannot currently be changed (with the exception of a full screen toggle and a resolution control). The number of different events, tracks are few, (although apparently coming in the full version), and there is no free true roam mode.

That said, what is there is all the core functionality, albeit with a few changes, some you may welcome, others.... not so much.

The Reflex system IS in this game, but if the last game you played was Reflex, well it handles a little differently, so be prepared. The rider control influences the bike a lot more in turns, you can easily accidentally 180 degree turn your bike if you aren't careful, (yes I did that first corner I did, haven't done it again so far). Other than that, the responsiveness is a lot better and feels a lot more like your rider has weight. It does make the physics system a little wonky if you ignore the rider control though, as the bike feels a lot more like a brick, Rainbow has done a wonderful job of weighting these systems together and the rider and bike feel separate and together at the same time (unlike Reflex where they often felt more separate than anything else).

All the vehicle customization is still there, Rider customization also exists, although chest protectors don't exist but skin tone is now a thing. Changing off stock parts does change the performance of the bike so far, although the fine tune from Reflex is not there, (at least that I've noticed).

The AI is no longer crashing into you, it actually drives like it isn't trying to commit a murder suicide constantly. Other than that, it's no more easy or difficult, you just won't be forcibly wiped out by the AI every 10 secs if you get stuck in the group.

Your Bike is also more sturdy now, or at least it feels more sturdy, and wiping out isn't quite as easy unless you throw the bike and rider hard in one direction or ram your front wheel into the ground when landing. The actual Reflex (QTE to stay on the bike from Reflex game) is gone making some landings that seem like they should throw you off strange when they would have thrown the QTE to recover in your face before, you now have to recover (or break your riders neck) with your own decisions, the bike will not auto-recover via magically Analog stick flick anymore.

And finally we also see the return of the 50cc class. That's random but it's so fun.

Overall Score:

- The Reflex system, after a minor adjustment period, feels a lot better
- The core gameplay is still there, it's more nuanced though now
- Bike customization affects performance to a degree
- Your placement is still determined more by the lines you picked and your ability to control the bike than your ability to out run the AI with blind speed. In fact, blind speed will lose the race a lot of the time, even on rookie.

- The Gameplay is a bit more nuanced and weighted towards the rider than before. As such it feels very clunky if you ignore the rider controls. I had no problems with feeling it out, but apparently I'm in the minority here (hence why it's a pro and a con technically)
-* Full Free Roam is missing
-* Fine tuning is gone
-* Real-Time Terrain Deformation is missing

* - Thing I suspect are missing due to Early Access more than anything else. I've been taking them out of the list as they are added.

Overall 7/10 It's good, but nothing special yet. I have hopes for this game, but I wouldn't recommend this as a place to start in the franchise.

I wanted to like this game to be completely honest, it was a very disappointing buy.Bought this game very skeptically since all the reviews were mixed, plus it was on sale. All I can say is that the developers need to make this game free to play because it is not worth $24.99. I would not recommend this game to anyone with any PC build below high end ($1000+) I have a $900 PC, 0.9 hours was about all i could take of this to be honest. So should you decide to buy this game, just know this:

- Keyboard and mouse controls are impossible, you WILL need a controller.
- OK Graphics and effects, they try to hide a lot of the texture and effect flaws with motion blur.
- Crappy animations.
- VERY bad optimization.
- Chase camera is very weird at times.
- A few noticeable bugs here and there.
- Most graphics are locked so good luck with that.
- Physics are buggy.
- Scale on most objects are off, or so it seems to me.

Overall, this is a step back from Reflex; and yes, before you go and comment that, "Its only early access!!" I understand that, but its been two months since its own release and it's still one of the buggiest and laziest executed Early Access games that I've ever seen. If you're planning on buying this, I would hold off until the developers fix everything and it starts getting more positive reviews.

You can see that the graphics are not that good but that probably because it's just an early acces version of the game. I think this game really got some potential to be honest. The physics could be less stiff even after the big update and the wheel sliding thing in the corner has to be removed as well but I'm actually pretty happy with this game.

Here's a video of the pc version:

Bought this game to support the franchise, been playing mx vs atv since I was a kid. But WOW...this game is bad. The graphics are fine, the customization is great, but the core of a motocross game is the physics, and the physics this game has are extremely bad. Wish they wouldve just stuck with thr reflex engine, would have been a decent game... oh well.

It is in early access, however it is still a strong game with lots of promise. I started the game up and I instantly was taken back to the memories of playing MX Vs. ATV Unleashed on the PC when I was younger. The physics (especially traction) as well as the animations are rough around the edges, however Nordic seems to be eager for some feedback to make this game into something that can relaunch this franchise. I would recommend this game in this state to anyone who appreciates Nordic's effort to resurrect the game, or a die hard member of the community. I uploaded a video of a race onto my YouTube channel 522MotoFilms for people to see for themselves. (I use a keyboard as of right now)
Important***** Wait unil you unlock the upgrades to the bike to write a review! The performance and physics felt greatly enhanced by these upgrades and gave a more accurate picture of what the game is really like.

My setup:
ASRock Z97 Extreme4
GTX 770 4GB
4690k i5 (Corsair H100i)
8GB Crucial RAM

Early Access Review
So i've played reflex for years despite all the crap that was wrong with it. Despite all the issues and shortcommings of reflex it had one of the most fluid control systems. Supercross is a fun addition, but really not what I was expecting.

This is a step back in so many ways. I'm a KB racer. And there are many issues I've run into using the keyboard.
- All the reflex controls are not available on the KB - why can't I lean left and right?
- All the menus are designed for a controller, as the UI is all for xbox controls.
- I don't know if this is a KB issue...but the clutch...WTF? Half the time you use the clutch it blocks input until you start mashing keys.
- The camera view is really terrible in 1st person when using the KB. Unplayable.
Really enough with the awful console ports it's so frustrating!!!!!

The UI is nice, but ultimatley is designed for contollers and is also very buggy. I consistantly lose my cursor after about 3-4 races....not being able to click on things you lose your ability to use a lot of the functions in the UI

On to the actual game.
- Graphics are all locked, can't really customized.
- The scaling is terrible. Nail a triple it looks like you're jumping over a 10 story building. I thought we were past these days!
- Lots of bugs - lots of games that fail to launch, lots of spawning without a bike, glitched starts.....stuff that I thought was left in reflex.
- Preload system is a step back compared to reflex. Whips and scrubs are't fluid at all.
- Game just feels really stiff, not realy as fluid as it should feel.
- Game is too lax with full on casing jumps and running into tuffblocks.

But there is some good.
+ The game does sound awesome.
+ The clutch actually has a purpose
+ The option for manual shitfing is a nice addition
+ There are lots of gear and graphics to choose from which is nice.

In short:
This seems like another crappy console port to me right off the bat. Has some nice features, but is ultimately a step backwards and there are a lot of bugs that need to be fixed.

This game is bad, and Nordic should feel bad for releasing it like this even in early access. It feels dated, the controls are bad, the physics are so far off it feels sluggish and sloppy. Before its release, I watched a video where the devs stated the track width was widened to make it easier on new players to the franchise, this is a lie. It was widened because the controls are so sloppy, wonky that pro riders probably couldnt negotiate a tighter track. There are NO features in play for PC, no graphics settings, aside from resolution, and the optimization is worse than ♥♥♥♥ poor, its non existant. This whole game was phoned in, much of the gear is re-hashed straight from earlier titles. The devs on this game didnt fail, in order to fail you have to try. This game shows no improvements over past Mx Vs ATV titles. I feel bad for spending money on this title, I feel bad for getting my hopes up. THIS GAME IS PATHETIC, ITS A BAD JOKE. If there is to be any redemption there is so much work to be done, this title should actually release around 2017.

Major complaints

It pains me to see how poorly this game is doing. There are several things that were done poorly or not at all. The thing that bugs me THE MOST about this game is the turning tf man, Tires do not glide across the air. The tracks are not well sized at all compared to the amount (or lack of) power the bikes have, even the best players of this game I am sure find themselves casing it on a regular basis. One thing I could live with but am still upset about is the fact there is no free riding map (yes you can be the only one on a track) but it is not good enough. The lack of tricks and how hard they are to do them is very frustrating, Wheeling is so hard to get up and so easy to stay up, whips are near impossible on anything smaller than a 250. Lets not even talk about fps if you have a mediocre pc forget about playing this. Moral of the story is I cannot believe they were okay with releacing this half finished game, Reflex is still better and I would highly not recommend spending your money on this.

It is worth $20 but they still have a lot of work to do. The new physics start off feeling pretty bad but as you get used to it and unlock upgrades it does get better. If you're after realism go for MX vs ATV Reflex or better yet MX Sim, if you don't care about realism this game is worth adding to the MX game library.

I've been a player of all Mx vs Atv games and this one is so disappointing. There has been no progrees between Mx vs Atv Alive and this one. The content is very limited and racing only in supercross is getting boring quickly. There not even a possibility to enjoy freeride. The sounds are still nothing like real dirtbikes. Sad I wasted money on this.
Go for Mx vs Atv : Reflex it is older but the game is much more fun.

I thought this game was gonna be better then alive for sure,,, But i think they went the wrong way with this one. The only things that i like about this game is that you can throw some good whips an all the supercross tracks other than that not a big fan of this game... This is for the younger crowd... MXGP is where its at for a good mx simulator
