    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.

    So much content has been wrung out of this game that there's even a reward for the number of miles you bail out of jumps. That's right: you get rewarded for not being very good. Basically, if you don't enjoy this game you're probably dead from the waist down.

    Motocross Madness doesn't score many points on the audio-visual presentation. The game does, however, in the gameplay. And in that case it scores big. Many different game modes with maps that provide you with countless sidetracks and an expansive reward system, are only a few features Motocross Madness has to offer. This game will set you back ten bucks, and we promise you those bucks will be damn well spent.
  4. 75
    You'll ace every event in a handful of hours without much difficulty, and only the truly obsessive will pocket every collectible. But just ten bucks buys at least a few afternoons of enjoyable airborne antics.

    If you’re looking for a motocross games with lots of solo content, this isn’t for you, but if all you want is some simple and dirty mud racing online, Motocross Madness has what you need.

    A cute little avatar-based racing game that provides easy and appealing gameplay. The multiplayer modes are definitely the best aspect of the game, and will provide many more hours of fun than the single player alone. Although the game lacks some polish, Motocross Madness is a fast-paced motocross title that offers a great challenge for casual gamers and replay value for the price.

    Unless you’re actively looking for a new generic arcade racer to play, there’s no outstanding reason to give Motorcross Madness a spin.

    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.

    Excellent mini time waster for now and then fun, especially if you have another person to play with. Campaign is short enough not to get you bored before you unlock everything important and gives you enough practice to became pro at multiplayer sessions. Great deal for great price. Collapse

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    Recently available for free with the Xbox Live Motocross Madness is a perfectly passable motocross game with plenty of modes, both single player and multiplayer, and a decent selection of tracks. The handling model isn't all that tight however, and it doesn't really do anything that hasn't been seen plenty of times before, meaning my experience with it was pretty short lived. Expand

    The main problem I have with this game is the fact that they turned a semi-realistic motocross game and one of my all time favorite franchise, into a cartoon style kart racer. I just don't see the point. Where is my realistic Motocross sim Microsoft? They had everything going in the right direction with MCM2 in 2001. What happened? Turn 10 would have been a great studio to bring the realistic and authentic life of Motocross, Supercross, Freestyle, and Baja to the Xbox. Expand
