The worst performing PC game i have played in years.

Just bought the game and wish i hadn't.
Honestly what the hell is going on with this game?. Its hardly a looker in the first place but i'm getting as little as single digits in some of the outside tracks, The indoor tracks run anywhere from 40-80fps.
It almost seems like the engine is broken and won't use more than 50% of your gpu and cpu because Afterburner shows that my gpu never goes about 50% and my cpu cores are in the 40-55% range at all times.

My Specs -
Q9650 Quad @ 4.0ghz
8GB Ram
Overclocked GTX970

Oh and before someone says "thats an old cpu, maybe its bottlenecking your gpu", i can get 99% gpu usage on almost every game i play, including maxing out games like Witcher 3 (minus hairworks) at 60fps, Battlefront max at 60fps etc.

In fact i have not played a game, since i got my 970, that i couldn't max or close to max at 60fps. Not this game though lol.

It made me think that maybe my game didn't update because i read about performence updates that had been released, but Steam is set to 'always keep this game up to date', so god knows how the game used to run before these updates!!!.

I'd get an refund if i could but i bought the game off Bundle Stars and i'm not sure if you can refund with them sigh.

Honestly devs, i know its not an easy job but f""k me, this game is a joke.

MX vs. ATV Supercross Encore ...
... is a nice game, that reminds me on the old classic MX-vs-ATV-Games. The biggest Problem of the Game is the Content. Selling a Bike-Modell for like 3€ is way to much!! They probably ruined the Game by selling half its content via DLCs and not giving the Fans a big enoth Game to enjoy. I hope There will be released a Complete-Edition and set to Sale soon. Cause if this does not happen its sadly to say, that it will die faster than you might think. The Game itself isnt worth 30€... but I did buy it 75% off for 7,5€, and for that price you cant go wrong in buying it.

At first coming from reflex, I hated this game with a passion. But after having over 2k hours on reflex 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 I heard KTM's were released as DLC. This time I gave it an honest try with an open mind, not allowing the sea of negativity to influence my opinion before I gave the game an real try. I would play to get to a point where I could get some clean laps in and start pushing, because 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 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 stiff and static.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd36ENnEcHE&feature=youtu.be

I came to realize that my initial opinion of the game was compounded by friends saying "don't play this game it sucks." It was also influenced by the fact that the supercorss was different from Reflex, which is what I was used to. When I first started reflex I hated it, why? because it didn't play like unleashed. And reflex turned out to be one of my most played games of all time. Also bear in mind that reviews from early access are not seperated. It was a totally different game back then, and a lot of gripes have been addressed.

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 that require a completly different approach to how you attack the track. 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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9u6jA6iKY0&feature=youtu.be

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 and you put down a fast lap - Physics are pretty much on par with what you would expect with an Mx vs ATV game, not ultra realistic but not over the top arcadey. Feels like there is much more traction than reflex and the clutch will actually give you a decent boost. Unlike reflex, you actually have to use the clutch and brakes in encore, as you can very easily blow the turns. I do wish, however, that manual shifting was a little more refined so that there would be a real benifit to manually working your way though the gears instead of staying in 5th and using the clutch. That said automatic transmission works just as well and is what you would expect from an mx vs atv game without manual shifting. In the end I feel both are on par with eachother.

Preloading can seem over the top in 3rd person as it seem like the bike gets popped up and launched forward, but I find it much more mellow playing in 1st person. In my videos above, I do preload quite a few jumps but you don't see that huge pop up and forward that you see in 3rd person.

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, it still has it quirks and 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 see for yourself how much fun this game can be. 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.

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 ♥♥♥♥.

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.

Posted: August 30, 2015
It's not my intention to insult anyone, i'm just being honest and critical. This game's physics feel like they've been dumbed down for children the ages of 3-5. Any connection to real-world physics is lost here, unfortunately. This is a problem in previous titles but here it's gone into turbo mode. I dare say that this game isn't as fun as the original ExciteBike stand-up arcade game. At least there you had control and things made sense. Then there's the speed of this game. It's mind-numbingly slow movements combined with the way the physics make no sense leaves me feeling a bit sick after just a few minutes of playing.

The graphics options...there are none. I mean NONE. Not even a screen size resolution option. Not even a Full Screen option. It starts (and stays) in 'windowed mode' at what looks like 1280x720. The only way to get Full Screen is to Maximize the game window in the Task Manager. The quality of the graphics is absolutely unacceptable in this day and age. It's probably one of the worst looking and worst playing motocross game i've ever played.

Worth $24.00? Absolutely not! Real wotrh (using other Steam games and prices as a guide) - $4.

Unless they're considering a full replacement of everything in this game, don't buy it.

There is one thing positive, though... The power the clutch has at low speeds is just right. If Reflex had that i'd be happy with that game.

That is definitely NOT true! Steam should pull this game from its website at least until the time Nordic either remove the lie from their website, or until they actually comply with the above claim. This is not acceptable!

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:

This game can be fun (in a barebones "encore" way) but has serious technical issues that make it a pass for now.

Regardless of selected resolution, you're getting an upscaled 720 image so everything is blurry. There are also serious rendering issues with the terrain giving an offset transparent "3D-ish" look that can be seen in many screenshots.

And for performance, even on a decent i7 w/ 2GB 760 GTX and 8GB RAM it runs terribly. Any of the outdoor maps with AI racers framerate is mostly in the 20's, sometimes dipping into the teens. Other races in the Supercross stadiums tend to perform better (mostly in the 40's), but that's still much worse than this game should be running.

On the upside, the game seems to control pretty well and might be fun once these technical issues are resolved.

I would definitely wait to see if they fix these issues or just abandon the game, though. They are already closing forum threads for people complaining about these issues.

The latest patch(es) fixed the low resolution, the game now renders at the chosen resolution. However the performance is still bad.

The latest patch I think removed some FPS drops, making it feel a bit smoother but at around 19 FPS on outdoor tracks they are still unplayable. Supercross seems to run decent tho, but not at a rate that my gaming rig should be capable of.

As stated in my previous review; This game is NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT, it should still be in early access (public beta).

The game looks nothing like the quality of the images on the store page. Very blurry on a high end PC that I own. After being a huge fan of REFLEX, I was looking forward to this game. early access was pretty poor but that was then, Loaded the game up as of recent as I been playing REFLEX again, this game is still as poor as it was in early access.

If you enjoyed REFLEX, you wouldnt like this title, even ALIVE I would say is a better play than this.
