This game is pretty much like MX vs. ATV untamed only different levels and a different campaign mode. They added things like freestyle mode which is where you try to gain as many points as possible in two minutes on a dirtbike freestyle course. Also they took out the Monster Truck which was my favorite part in the Untamed. So rent it, beat it, return it. Simple.
Oh and the multiplayer online is the same as well. Not worth buying it.

Mx vs ATV Reflex isnt that bad in my opinion. I have played all of the mx vs atv serries and the originals. Yes there are a few things that need to be fixed i the physics engine, but you get use to it and the game becomes really fun. i havent tried out the online feature yet but i have been entertained with the carrear. If anyone wants this game i say go ahead and try it out first, then buy it.
Lots of hitching, in both gameplay and cut aways.
Gameplay for both Arena and mountainscape venues suffers in ill attempts to sustain not so breathtaking background detail that cause tremendous Nintendo like hitching and confuses the heck out of LCD TV attempts to control brightness....but overall the graphics were still pretty sick.
WAY too many dudes go straight through a 90 degree hairpin at full throttle. Don't get me wrong, I was able to advance a bit easier, but looks really funny.
Game's a lot of fun, especially in MX class on closed tracks. The freestyle mode is a bit bland. The lack of equipment licensing shows some budget issues and lack of support for the franchise as does the limited size and narrow genre playlist of double bass pedal metal...
It takes a while to get used to the physics, watching the track get "beat in" is cool, but random 90 degree endos in a rut are a bit much.
