  1. The graphics are the game’s strong point, with fluid character development and crisp backgrounds.
  2. The great thing about MX 2002 is that it combines both of these kinds of gameplay--competitive racing and freestyle tricks--and does them both well.
  3. Very solid overall and the bottom line is that it is extremely fun to play.
  4. Takes a little longer to get used to than your average motocross game, but the result is a deeper game that still has all the fun of a more arcadelike offering.
  5. Invisible barriers also pepper the apparently open areas which grace certain courses – call us new-fashioned, but PLAY doesn't expect to be dismounted for no other reason than touching a piece of earth that the coders have deemed "out of bounds". Put a tangible obstacle there or let us the hell through!
  6. On the up side we have an excellent create-a-biker mode, some wonderful tutorials, and some surprisingly good control. [Aug 2001, p.109]

    Kinda accessible, sorta deep, and relatively enjoyable, MX2002 may find its true niche with big motocross fans, but casual gamers will likely be left in the dust.
