    Provides one of the best places for the experience of racing in the dirt and having it online makes it even better. The racing tracks are fun to ride and with online stats there's a compelling reason to keep shaving seconds off your time. If only there were more tracks to race on.
  2. It is done well and loads of fun to play. The single player games and career mode give you a sense of having to do well to unlock new gear and tracks. Once you have mastered these, take your riding skills and go online or play via LAN against your buddies.
  3. Gives PC bike-racing fans a welcome and all-too-rare outlet for some mindless two-wheeled hijinks. [Feb 2005, p.74]

    Flawed, but still a good, fun dirt bike game.
  5. There’s a certain thrill in launching off a ramp and zooming through the air, flipping and spinning, especially when there’s no threat to you involved. On the other hand, there’s too much dilution of styles here, producing a weak mix of pure motorcycle action and free-roam exploration.
  6. Slightly grotty in parts, but entertaining. [Feb 2005, p.93]
  7. Surprisingly entertaining. [March 2005, p.88]

    I'd say it's a passable game, but it's hardly great. Biggest flaw would be the sound design. Not sure what it is about MX games but theyI'd say it's a passable game, but it's hardly great.

    Lame gameplay / weak physics. Should have stayed on the consoles. No joystick support (!) The music is tailored to kids and is really boring.

    Gameplay is a little lame. Sounds are very poor.
