The Rider Reflex control system provides unparalleled precision and fluidity by separating machine steering from body positioning, which allows the independently controlled rider to shift his weight, perform death-defying stunts and avoid potentially devastating wrecks. Unprecedented terrain deformation creates ever-changing courses as off-road vehicles carve lines and deep ruts that have a real-time impact on gameplay and remain persistent through the full length of each race.

    It’s finally here. Big-time motocross and off-road racing with REAL dirt and separate bike and rider control... Rainbow Studios deliver a pot of pure gold.
  2. Minor gripes aside, though, Reflex is the most fun you'll have being caked in mud.
  3. If you’re looking for a game to curb that racing fix you so desperately crave, or just looking for something new to give you a break from the endless array of shooters on shelves, MX vs. ATV Reflex will more than answer the call.

    A terrific off-road experience in some areas. Shame it feels weak in others. [Apr 2010, p.101]

    While the game has its fair share of annoying problems and suffers from being a bit too straightforward, it offers a solid off-road experience; motocross fans will be hard pressed to find a title better than this one.
  6. The increased rider control really makes it feel like you are an MX pro, skidding round the tracks like you know what you're doing. However, the improved physics can make bikes and, especially, ATVs feel like you're riding a squirrel with a sugar high as opposed to a finely tuned vehicle – a lot of fun but ultimately out of control.
  7. It feels like Rainbow Studios has been making the same games for a decade now, and still haven't managed to find the right formula. MX vs ATV Reflex is not a bad game, but feels really low budget and is just mediocre.

    I think that the new Reflex game is great! I have only downloaded the demo and I am already in love. The only thing that I really have to I think that the new Reflex game is great! I have only downloaded the demo and I am already in love. The only thing that I really have to complain about is how sensitive the controls are for the reflex control. I found myself dramaticly whipping the bike or accedently sliding the bike out just from tapping the right joystick. Aside from that, I think that the game is very realistic and fun to play. Expand

    MX vs. ATV Reflex is a pretty good game for what it tries to be. The way the vehicles control can be frustrating sometimes.

    I was expecting this game to be ALOT better than I anticipated it to be. The gameplay isn't even remotely better than the older version, I was expecting this game to be ALOT better than I anticipated it to be. The gameplay isn't even remotely better than the older version, I don't like the fact that you have to get yourself out of a 'Pickle' so to speak, if you fall, you fall get over it. Sorry but a 4 from me Expand
