  1. Anyone who reveled in the joy of the NES "Excitebike" and the original "Motocross Maniacs" will undoubtedly love this update. [April 2002, p.71]
  2. Fast, fun, and impossible to put down. [Summer 2003, p.33]
  3. Maniacs will keep you happy and occupied on the go, even if some of the characters and modes are hokey. [Apr 2002, p.89]
  4. The racing style is fresh for newbies to the series like me, but the experience begins to deteriorate after a while. The learning curve is slow.
  5. Its light-hearted approach is suitable to that type of play and I imagine Motocross will find a good niche there because of its Saturday morning cartoon treatment of motorcycle racing.
  6. Excellent fun. [Apr 2002, p.152]
  7. Sadly, the AI is very predictable, so after you've gotten the hang of the game, you'll have no trouble winning almost every race.
  8. 60
    A cluttered mess of a racer that bares very little resemblance to the game it follows...and definitely doesn't offer nearly as much fun.
  9. Fun for about an hour, and after that I doubt you'll ever pick it up again. [Apr 2002, p.146]
  10. The core gameplay is spoiled by a rare complaint for a racing game: it's just too darn fast.
