    Monster Energy Supercross 4 clearly wasn’t made for me. I’ve never had a Monster Energy drink and I haven’t played a motocross game in over 15 years, but the game is a blast. The tutorial sucks and leaves out (or brushes over) absolutely crucial information, but the bike physics and racing action make a difficult to master game so exciting to play. I can’t speak to how much better this version is over last years, but I can say the current version is a ton of fun for newcomers if they don’t mind putting in the work.

    Monster Energy Supercross 4 is a racing game with deep sense of rhythm, fun and exhilarating. It might lack significant new features, but it’s damn entertaining and its qualities are undeniable.

    It's a small step further for the official Supercross game, but a step nonetheless.

    Supercross 4 is another solid entry in the popular racing genre. Its lackluster career and the fairly steep learning curve however is stopping the racing game from accelerating further.

    With such assured motion, incident-packed races and gorgeous stadium track visuals this should be an easy recommendation, especially since it’s a deluxe version of an already-polished series. But the harsh handling model and extreme sense of déjà vu suck out a lot of the fun. [Issue#187, p.85]

    Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 4 isn’t a bad game at all, rather it’s just an incredibly difficult one that leaves no room for novices to enter the dirt track arena. If you are a pro, then you’re going to find a lot to love about this game. The multiple modes work well, the track creation is solid, and the customization in the game is on point.

    Monster Energy Supercross 4 on PS5 is pretty much everything you think it is for better or worse. Though Milestone's practiced hand at crafting reliably enjoyable design frameworks and handling models from previous games make it to Sony's latest console intact, there's simply not enough done on the feature set and visual presentation side of things to make Monster Energy Supercross 4 feel like a true leap forward from its last-gen predecessors. Nonetheless, though longtime fans of the series will surely lap this up, newcomers should expect to be freshly punished by the game's unforgiving, though ultimately satisfying handling system.

    Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 4 could have been a racing game with some brilliant ideas and a quite fresh career concept, but the overall result is quite opaque. A quite ok motocross game for supercross fan, fun for expert riders while edgy for newcomers, quite improved compared to other entries in the series, but not enough to stand out as a great episode.

    Supercross 4 is a complex game to approach that doesn't do much to be appealing to the general public.

    This game is a battle against yourself. A race against your own patience, response time and decision making in every second, in every race. It's something very technical. Is it the attachment to realism that makes Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 4 a title that scares off the most novice or less patient of players? Probably. But Milestone bets on those who indulge in this level of technical simulation that, although far from perfect, does invite you to lose yourself in it.

    With all of the changes and improvements made, Monster Energy Supercross 4 should have been the best game in the series yet. And it still could be with a patch or two. But right now, the issues with the difficulty, AI and physics are notable setbacks. Series veterans who can give Realistic AI a run for their money will find plenty to be happy about, but those who aren’t so capable are likely to find themselves frustrated time and time again. It’s not so much that Monster Energy Supercross 4 is hard, it’s that sometimes it feels like it’s unfair – that the AI doesn’t play by the same rules as you. And that doesn’t lead to a fun racing experience.

    Monster Energy Supercross 4 is another typically robust take on the AMA Supercross Championship but, with fewer concessions for newcomers and casual players and the changes to career mode ultimately being a little rudimentary, this particular instalment feels as if it’s both steering away from courting new fans and not quite doing enough to compel existing players to upgrade.

    Milestone delivers on its slate of upgrades introduced in Monster Energy Supercross 4, but the racing remains frustrating and unapproachable for new players. The Career Mode is a welcome addition even though it may not match up to other franchises that are out there, while The Compound gives players a new location to free roam around in, but is ultimately the same thing outside of the location. The PlayStation 5 version allows for better visuals and the inclusion of the DualSense Controller, but the engine that everything is based on is old. Those that are hardcore fans of the series will enjoy these additions if they continue to overlook the legacy issues. The next-generation version is basically an improved version of the previous-gen version by default due to the hardware, and outside of the Career Mode, Monster Energy Supercross 4 is more of the same.
  14. Mar 8, 2021
    Monster Energy Supercross 4 is not easy to get the hang of, and even seasoned players will find frustration in the game's very grindy career mode. For fans of AMA Supercross, this is just another mandatory purchase to enjoy the current courses and rosters with little improvements from the last game - but for people who are looking for an exciting racing game, that experience won't be found here.

    Having played the first three entries on PS4, this was my first entry played on PS5. At first, I was greatly impressed by the graphicalHaving played the first three entries on PS4, this was my first entry played on PS5. At first, I was greatly impressed by the graphical improvement the game made. Nothing else was really any better, and the overall feel for the game had changed and is much harder, and I cannot win, even on very easy. The weight management and body shifting seems way more important now. When I played the first it took me a while to get used to the weight shifting and such but I got good enough to win most races on very easy, not here tho .The career thing with training will have its appeal to ea gamers but I did not care much for it. Training did not train me.. This is likely the last time I play a game in this series, it can keep it's hard core fan base, no thanks! Full Review »
