What the developers have to say:

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)
- 13 vehicles (125cc bikes, 250cc bikes & ATVs, 450cc bikes & ATVs, 650cc bike & ATV + 50cc mini bike)
- 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
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.

I like it! I'm still learning the tracks and what the bike can do but it feels at least as good as reflex to me. I only have two real complaints, I can't find anywhere to turn rumble off on the controller or a way to turn in game chat off. The in game chat I can ignore, but with a wireless controller having rumble on kills batteries too quickly. It is different than reflex, being able to go fast on reflex doesn't automatically transfer to going fast on this one - which is a good thing. Once you get used to the way the controls work the new tracks are a blast!

My honest opinon? I wish I would have torrented it first. Probably would have deleted the torrent or rarely played it. I put in one race and it is utter ♥♥♥♥. Graphics suck, handling is horrendus, etc.. It is really sad the state motorcross and motorcycle racing games are in. The best MX game in my opinion has to be MXGP, which not only has better graphics, handling and I think is more fun, it is almost half the price. I will wait to see what this new content update brings. I understand that this is an early release but cmon devs', make this a good game.
EDIT: I'm not saying MXGP is perfect either, but if MX vs ATV could adopt the handling that MXGP has, it would become a very good game.

I'll keep this short and sweet, buy reflex instead. Its far superior to this game still. the only good thing I have to say is they did a good job on the tracks. Everything else about the game is junk. I hope they will fix it but I doubt it. not worth $20 even.

This is an update to my previous post below, I feel that i should also mention this, when i first purchased this game it was for ps3, i guess i had high expectations for this game, but i hated it!! I couldnt believe how the bike was turning, handling ect..i was ready to burn the damn disk! But thankfully im relentless when it comes to moto games and i new i was'nt seeing the full potential of this game. it took roughly two weeks or 20 hours or so of absolute frustration b4 it started to make sense to me, as well as upgrading the bike. Dont even try to come to any conclusions about this game until you have 1. upgraded the bike and 2. learn to control it. I searched the web and youtube for tips on how to go faster, watched hours of video, (p.s. the french are freakin fast, i.e. mxfp_cohas_800) and now i own this freakin game! not saying im the fastest, but check the leaderboards you'll see my name. So im going to do what nobody did for me and give some helpful tips, 1. use control config 5 and leave the bike in 5th gear, 2. the name of the game is corner speed, try to mostly steer with the left stick. 3. try to keep the bike's rpm's high by holding the right stick back and hitting the clutch a few times tell you hear that high rev sound, if you master these few tricks you to can fly!! So im gonna close now with this. this is still the baddest moto game ever!! i love it. look at the hours played by anyone leaving a negative or not recomended post, 1/2 hour, 1 hour, 3 hours.. that is not even close to the time it takes to see the potential of this game. Like i said below, patience is a virtue, and chances are all the skills you may have amast over the years on different moto games from the mxvatv series or other, probably dont apply to this game! God bless you all!



Hands down the best motocross/supercross game ever!! Physics are baddass! Controls are equally baddass, But!! Big but like the lady in the third row, patience is a virtue with this game, you must be patient and learn to ride and control the machine, (just like in Real Life! Imagine that..) i personally have destroyed several controllers out of frustration (not proud of that) until i finally figured it out, and its a blast now!! makes me laugh when i hear disgruntled players hating on the game. ITS THE BEST MOTO GAME OUT THERE! in my opinion of coarse, absolutely kills that gay ♥♥♥ MXGP game! or any other. So in closing, my only complaint is this....Hurry the hell up and release the other 13 tracks as well as my damn 450!!
(Please)....My hats off to nordic and all involved. Kick ♥♥♥ game

I have been waiting for this game for a very long time, so naturally when I saw this encore verison, I bought it. What a huge dissapointment! The physics are horrible, terrible, there are not enough words for how bad the physics are. Compared to previous mx vs atv and the newer MXGP (which is awesome), this is like playing a 99 cent side scroller on my phone.
I will be extremely hesitant in buying the full version now, probably wait until it's twenty bucks a year from release.

If you've played MX vs ATV Reflex or MX vs ATV Alive before, this game (at least this Early Access version only) is far from being a worth playing for more than half an hour. I say Alive or Reflex already had great gameplays. I hope the Encore can prove that its better.

This is crap. They basically made an ok game even worse. On top of that, the devs are even too lazy to convert all the tracks they already released for consoles.

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:

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

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.

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.

Before you bash on this game, it takes time to unlock items so play it intill you unlock your parts. it is a step up from the other games before this and i think its going in the right direction. Buy it to see the game grow or just wait up to you.

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 have to say I am very much enjoying this game. I only have 2 really big complaints and one minor complaint witch should be fixed during early access.
Major complaints
-Lack of graphics options
-Lack of content
Minor complaint
-Riding physics could use some tweaking
If they fix these thing this game will be my favorite in the series!!!!!

I REALLY like the MX... series. And I really liked Reflex.
I even bought this game on Xbox because I wanted to play it and it got delayed.
So.... I initially thought they need more time to release it in a playable version.
Soooooo what do you get when you buy the game now(8th of March 2015)?

It in fact is a version of the game that is ported from console using the same "program" that was used for Reflex. You have to start a exernal program to change the settings, if you can call it that. the only thing you can do in the graphics menu is change the resolution and toggle fullscreen, Thats it.
Ok could still be not that bad considering that Reflex was playable on PC after Nordic did the last patch.
WRONG! I really hate hating the game for this since it is still early-access but they really had enough time.


WHAT IS/COULD BE RIGHT WITH THIS GAME:

- It didn't stutter/lag, at least not in the breaks between game-crashes (i7 4790k, HD7970)
- It felt kinda like the console version

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS GAME:

-There is no career mode
-The bikes have different stats than in the console version
-You can only play the first 4 tracks because you have to play career to unlock more
-The graphics are WORSE than the console version
-I don't really know anything else because it crashed 2 times within 30min(don't ask me why Steam thinks I only played it 5min idk) and I really don't want to play it again before the next patch


Do I like this game?

MAYBE. I'll tick no first because right now it really is more or less unplayable. But it has a lot of potential.
