    Easily the best offroad racing game out there. I play it on PC but the game is basically the same on all consoles minus the graphic tweaks. I cannot believe the low scores. The game is like MotorStorm: PR without all the vehicles and better graphics at least on PC. The jumps are insane in this game and remind of SSX of old times. Way off base here giving this 10 dollar title a 6. Go back to COD you tards. I got the DLC and game on Steam for 4 bucks and you can find sales on XBL and PSN as well. Full 10 because it's cheap and damn near a full game off road style. A lot of love was put into these tracks. The tournies have the usual Stunt, Clock, Race, etc. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this game. Insane air and tons of variety with the DLC. I thought they did the island theme about as good as it can possibly be done for DL title. Expand

    I played a bit of "Mad Riders" and I can't believe that someone pays for this game... Totally crap!
    And graphics... well, they are are good... if you were playing on DreamCast.

    It's quick, responsive, reasonably over-the-top and keeps you playing for longer than you might expect. [Issue#220, p.81]
  2. Think: a cheaper, slightly nastier version of 2008's Pure, and you're not too far off the track. [July 2012, p83]
  3. Mad Riders' set-up is as old as the ATV itself, a throwback to the classic over-the-top racing, but succeeds in giving it all a refreshing new coat of paint. And the best part is that can get all of this fun for the price of a single pizza. [July 2012, p.92]
