    The campaign could be a little longer and as said above more tracks is a must if they make a sequel, but for right now if you do buy this game you’ll walk away knowing that it’s been 800 points well spent.

    This game is a mix between PURE, Excitebike (for you old schoolers), and Trials. There is enough leveling up rewards to keep you wanting to play, and all the bikes have a different feel and look. You learn new tricks that are more difficult to pulloff and some are off-the-wall crazy air style like PURE where you tie them together and make your own combinations for bonus rewards. The game tracks your stats so that your friends who have it can see who is better where and try to beat your scores and times. There are multiple games styles from standard races to trick tracks,and I very much enjoy the adventure mode. This mode is not timed and is just a large open area where you have to try and collect all the skulls and coins that are either hidden, or extremely difficult to get to. I am looking forward to leveling my bikes all the way and taking them online to show off my skills against live players and my friends. If you like motocross games, or just racers at that, this game is a sure win! Only complaints are the visuals being a little basic, but it's an arcade title and its great for what it is, and the amount of area's to compete, but there is always the possiblility of downloadable content.

    Surprisingly excellent cartoony motocross action with a fully integrated online component. Not since Excitebike 64 have I played such a fun motorbike racing game! The avatar support really adds to this fun factor along with the visuals which are simple but pretty and the bike models are varied and solid. The handling is spot-on arcade style stuff with drifts, whips and all manner of crazy mid-air tricks to choose from. It may appear simple and it's easy to get into but there is a hardcore challenge underneath for those that crave it. Track design is top-notch with tons of shortcuts and ramps and although there are only three areas, each are huge and distinctive. Alongside Race, Rivals and Trick modes there is Exploration which stands out with tons of collectables and secret areas. The multiplayer is great and there is split-screen support which is always good for any racing game. Although quite short, the player progression, track design and constant rival challenges provide extra lifespan. Extra tracks via DLC would be ideal. Overall this game shines with quality and care-free gameplay. Full Review »

    Found this rather boring. Not really sure what else to say. Its riding dirt bikes around tracks with jumps, ramps and shortcuts and either racing or doing tricks. Good concept but nothing about it grabs me that much. Full Review »
