At first coming from reflex, I hated this game with a passion. But after having over 2k hours on refelx over the years, it was time to look for something else. 1st impression, no feel for the bike, couldn't turn, coudln't whip, could barely make any of the jumps. And why is the camera panning sideways in 3rd person? This of all things really screwed me over, this panning of the camera sideways in every turn, made it very easy to run off the track in every turn. I felt limited it what I could do.

Quit and played reflex some more, but the hours were wearing me down. Started playing Encore again when the KTM's were released. I love KTMs! This time I gave it an honest try with an open mind, and to at least beable get to a point where I could get some clean laps in and start pushing, cuz this is where racing games come alive, when you are on the gas!

The biggest difference for me between liking and hating this game, other than the nicely modeled KTM's, was forgetting about 3rd person and playing in 1st person. After I started getting some basic lines down it really felt like Encore was designed to be played in 1st person, not 3rd. The game just felt so much more fluid in this view, much closer to what I've come to expect from an MX vs ATV game. Looked way better and played better as you feel the bike more as you actually have a feel for the front of the bike. 3rd person by comparison feels very, VERY static.

The tracks themselves offer a nice variety of content, though I do wish nordic would release the 2016 AMA supercross tracks which are all out there....somewhere. Not as much a fan of some of the outdoor tracks but they do offer a completly different challenge with those flat turns. I do wish SX tracks would get rutted the same amount as outdoors though, Sounds are pretty well done, feels great when you open up the throttle, go though the whoops and rev the bike in the air.

At it's core this still is an MX vs ATV game. Lots of huge lines to be found, still feels great when you land the rythms clean. At this point, after hating encore for so long, I'm playing it a lot more.(but I still hate it's implemention of 3rd person which I think puts a lot of people off). Its not a perfect game, still could benifit from some elbow greese, but what game is perfect?

So if you're thinking of trying this game, ignore the sea of negativity. Stop by my page and check out some of my videos and start forming your own opinion. See you on the track racers!

I would have to say, though initially dissapointed with this game. I am starting to have fun with this one. Ive made some tweaks to my system (disabling crossfire and AMD Gaming App) and the game runs great. Its not a game that will have MX simulator physics, but I do think its fun to play if you want to go fast and jump big. The DLC tracks ans Stewart compound have a good flow and I did get the KTM bikes and those seem fun, too. I would say if you buy this game, don't expect MX simulator, It's different, not better or worse, just different. None the less I still like the game and Im starting to have fun with it.

I think this game has gotten more hate than it deserves.
It is too often compared to Reflex, which was a fantastic game. In terms of realism, I would agree that Reflex is the best game to this day. However, this game targets a slightly different audience. The objective here wasn't to have an ultra-realistic game that offers no forgiveness for messing up in a rhythm section. The goal was to have a supercross game that gave players the sensation of realistic racing, while still allowing newer players to make small mistakes without throwing their entire race away. There are more supercross tracks than Reflex, and the poor excuse for an upgrading system has been replaced. The "physics" that everyone complains about are actually pretty good too.

Bottom line: If you're looking for a new supercross game that takes a certain amount of skill and knowledge about sx, but doesn't have simulator-level difficulty, I think you'll enjoy this game.

Also, for anyone who says it's impossible to do a whip - it's possible; you just have to learn how.

"Oh no, the game isn't like Reflex! I won't recommend!"
Shut the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ up, nothing will be like it for a while.

Although I will say, Nordic did try to bounce this game back from Alive, which I will say, nobody can defend that game. It's just awful. Supercross, on the other hand, is alright. Yes, I wouldn't really describe this game as a simulator, but that's not the point. Supercross has a decent amount of content right off the bat. It fixed many problems Alive had: a Career Mode, starter tracks when you start up the game, and actually a bit more content.

I'm not saying this game is perfect, though. They removed the Rider Reflex thing where you crash, you have to flick the stick in the direction of the arrow to save yourself. Now, it's just automatic. This kinda blows, since it dullens your senses to not be on your toes when you are in a race. Also, I've noticed that scrubs and whips are harder to pull off in this game than Reflex. This is probably an issue with the Alive engine as well, but they arn't impossible. They are just tricker to pull off, and they don't feel fluid. The last issue I had with this game is that they reuse all of Alive's free content. Nordic didn't make any new Motocross stages, they just ripped them from Alive, as well as the 2 Free Ride stages. This is kinda lazy on their part. I don't want to be reminded of Alive, because that game is a ♥♥♥♥♥torm.

It's also worth mentioning that although this game is the Encore edition, which means that this version has all of the downloadable content, there's still DLC to buy. What? I know that DLC is easy to make money off of, but just add it to the base game and bump the price up a little bit. Good lord.

To finish it off, Supercross isn't good, nor bad. On the list of favorite games in the MVA series, this game is right in the middle, between Unleashed on the upper end, and Untamed on the lower end. I don't really thing this game is worth the $30, just get it off of {LINK REMOVED} or during the sales, like I did.

7/10, good come back from Nordic, but it can use some more polish.

A horrible horrible attempt at breathing life into a once great series.
The performance is awful. stutters, frame drops, the hole shabang.
The game looks awful which makes the awful performance all the more awful.
Everything as far as I can recollect is recycled from previous games which would have been cool if this game ran any better or looked any better than those games.

My fond memories of the mx vs atv series have just been nut punched out of me. There is zero reason for me, a fan of the series, to own this game. It in no way extends the series forward or improves upon previous entries. It's just a lamest hits version with the same craptastic selection of free roam maps and "the affordable DLC will complete the game" pricing model.

Let's pretend this never happened. and hope that a more talented and with the times studio buys the liscence from nordic and continues the series with a NEW entry, on a made within the last 10 years graphics and physics engine, and then patches any bugs or performance issues that game would have within you know....ever.

TLDR simple fix for performance issues - uninstall.

For all the players, this is a GOOD game. Not the best, but a good game. Unlike Reflex, MvASE has good graphics, the both games have the same performance (50-60 FPS). There is a better customization for the riders and all the bikes.

The physics isn't bad, it's different than Reflex, less realistic, more arcade (like the early MvA's games). The DLC are too much expensive, and too many. From my point of view, it's better to work more on a game than to release a lot of DLC to complete it, even if the game become more expensive.

So yeah, I like this game, it is different than Reflex or Alive, but it is a GOOD game, and Nordic will release their next game with all the quality of this one, and they will improve all the defects.

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.


Edit since release:
Game now runs at 35-60 fps inconistantly, resolution scaling is obviously locked below 1080. There might be new bikes but they are DLC. Some new gear. Devolper asked that I re-review, so here it is. Game is still a hot mess, graphics are re-hashed and look terrible, physics feel unnatural, there is little to no innovation. So there you go "♥♥♥♥ on me and call it rain" and then ask for an award after minimal effort, I stand behind my original review, a piece of ♥♥♥♥ at 60fps is still a piece of ♥♥♥♥.
