Another cool feature is the track surface. It is fully deformable meaning that the dirt surface changes consistency when it gets wet. The physics dynamics of driving on a dry surface versus blasting and sliding through mud changes your approach to racing on a track.
I played all motocross games en ride motocross myself and i can tell you that this is by far the best motocross game ever. Bikes respond good , steering is to the point. The ability to build your own circuits is awesome and sharing them online even more. About a week ago this game came out and there are already more then 15.000 own build tracks to be shared...! Maximum replay value guaranteed !!
An improvement from Milestone on the MXGP series. It certainly can be gripping and it's more than challenging once you get the settings right. Racing through your own career is pretty fun to say the least. The only thing is that, like other Milestone titles, it has its issues that could do with working through.
Monster Energy Supercross demonstrates that Milestone can take even more advantage of the Unreal Engine 4 and that they are well on their way to realizing their potential. However, the studio continues to make historical mistakes presenting the same playable formula excessively supported in the Career mode without accompanying it with anything relevant.
Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Video Game is a well crafted and unique racing title that attempts to capture the unique elements of dirt bike racing. The game is fun and has a lot of detail in its gameplay elements as well as the riders, bikes, and tracks included. Unfortunately, loading lag times and other issues stain what would be otherwise a very solid racing experience.
If you are a huge fan of AMA Supercross, you will love this game with its real tracks and racers. But if you just want to do a fun racing game, you will not enjoy this game that is not very comfortable to play.
Monster Energy Supercross: The Game is a breath of fresh air for MotoX games at the moment, As the Mx Vs ATV series has gone downhill after Reflex and the MXGP titles have just been OK but not great. ME SX TE is a brilliant game and while it's not perfect it gets a lot of things right, so here's some good and bad points about this game.
- Needles to say graphically this game is AMAZING and borderline photo realistic at times. The motion blur filter that kicks in during the races makes for a sensational feeling of speed and keeps the adrenaline rolling throughout the races.
- The amount of content here is huge, All 17 tracks in the official FIM SX championship with both the 250 East and West championships and the 450 full season. Plus the track editor and the ability to do custom championships on yours and other peoples custom made tracks is enough to keep anyone entertained for months.
- The amount of Bike and Rider customisation is massive with all major Bike Manufacturers, Tonnes of contributing MX Brands with tonnes of products on offer that all look great and true to life.
- The racing itself is absolutely fantastic. Coupled with the motion blur filter as mentioned before, the aggressive A.I. and the balanced difficulty, the racing in this game can be nail biting at times. While the learning curve may be a bit steep at first.
- The handling and response in this game is the best of any motoX game yet and the weight and balance controls really work this time unlike the previous MXGP titles.
- As mentioned earlier the graphics are fantastic but for some reason the day time graphics during practice and qualifying sessions aren't nearly as good as the night time graphics in the races and the motion blur filter isn't present which makes a difference.
- The character models of the official riders are pretty ugly and the game also lacks a custom character creator, the custom rider only has a select number of pre-made character models to choose from and they are all pretty ugly except for two. Even to just be able to change the hair and skin colour on them would have made a huge difference.
- Lack of depth in the career mode! This seems to be the gripe with most of Milestone's work. The Career mode is fun but its stock standard. Select a rider, gear and bike to start off with, go race, earn credits to buy more stuff, progress from 250 up to 450... Thats it! The NBA 2K games have set a solid benchmark of what how immersive the career mode in a sports game can be. Milestone would do well to take note of that.
In conclusion; while MTX Mototrax is still the best MX game of all time, Monster Energy Supercross is the best MX game since 2011's MX Vs ATV Reflex. This coupled with the also recently released 'Gravel' is showing that Milestone are fast improving and they could very well have a masterpiece on their hands soon
