I rented this game on PS2 for my kids, who love racing games. The game is pretty good, but also pretty unspectacular. It doesn't have the glorious crashes some of the other games have, which was a disapointment seeing as how the riders on on both ATVs and Motorcycles. Some confusing controls, too. However, no bad things to say, just an average racing game that leaves a lot to be desired.
I have been cussing at this game since I got it 5 days ago but at the same time I keep coming back to it because there is something there in the way of a mx game you will not see anywhere else... not that we have a lot of choices.
but you have to work at it, a steep learning curve that at times you wonder what the heck am I doing playing this. But you really have to work at making the jumps without casing them... the tracks are as cool at all get out... I am using a PS3 with a 50inch Plasma... I have heard people say it does not look as good as Motorstorm... well I don't want to play motorstorm I want to ride a bike and this is where I can. The maps or tracks are biggg. I mean big. You ride all over the place. Some tracks are easier than others... The hard ones are worth the challenge of working on them... It pay... Sure there are a lot of problems... On line and getting a game is like pulling teeth... I have only had one game when there were 8 people... the rest of time is is 2 to 3 or 4 people at the most... usually 2. Seems like everyone knocks me down or you get knocked down then he or she is ten seconds and you never catch them... unless they have some class and wait for you and then you can race again... The yo yos that knock you down just to get a win ought to have there game taken from them... it is so hard to get a game it is only you and the other person you waited forever to get in a game and now you want to knock me down and race all by yourself up front. wow you are just to cool.
I have seen a lot of people say this game sucks... I have screamed at the game and the kids while playing it but I keep coming back.
unlike Unreal 3 that I waited forever to come out and have not picked it up but a few times when I got it.
If you want a easy to use game that goes where you point it DO NOT get this game. If you want something like a real mx bike and are willing to pay a price . your sanity then get the game or rent it I am going to buy i
