  1. This game will teach you how to lay off the throttle to effectively negotiate challenging courses.
  2. In a word, this game is ugly.
  3. There’s as much to do in this game as there is in any other full-priced motocross game – and Motocross Mania is really no better or worse than most of those.
  4. This is probably the worst racing game (motocross or otherwise) that I have ever played. It plays bad, looks bad, and I'm sure if I sniffed it, it would probably smell bad, too.
  5. "Do not bite on this puppy." Hey, for ten bucks, go buy yourself some lunch. It’ll certainly be a lot easier to swallow!
  6. The graphics are horrible. Bad visuals and a bad frame-rate repulse the eyes.

    Nik is right. As a longtime rider, I can say that the physics in this game are very close to reality. The people who are complaining about Nik is right. As a longtime rider, I can say that the physics in this game are very close to reality. The people who are complaining about how tough it is to pilot a bike around a course probably haven't done it in real life. The graphics are not astounding, but they are not butt-ugly either. The audio is fine and the difficulty is good. I dunno about the rest of you, but the EA Sports Supercross titles were too easy, the second Jeremy McGrath (sp?) title was too cartoony. So far Motocross Mania is just plain solid. Not phenomenal, but good. And worth more than a $10.00 lunch. Full Review »

    Steering is too sensitive so that you pop a wheelie and crash while trying to turn several times a lap.
