Compete against some of the top names in motorcross in
a variety of locations, or race against other vehicles including
a monster truck, dune buggy or helicopter. Perform stunts
and ride around huge terrains as you listen to some thumping
tunes... and that's just for starters!...
not only a fantastic game for racing fans, it also caters
to those who would usually run a mile from this style of game.
Racing around and around indoor arenas or outdoor terrain
is not everyone's cup of tea. So, it is great to see that
Rainbow Studios have crammed in plenty of alternatives to
those who want that little bit extra.
game not only features a robust racing mode, but also an expansive
Freeworld mode that allows gamers to explore vast environments
where they can race against and ultimately drive machines
including a helicopter, monster truck, dune buggy, biplane,
and trophy truck.
mode also lets players explore hits, jumps and runs in a variety
of mini-games; perform stunts like jumping off moving trucks
or through hot air balloons; and catch big air off of the
your average car racing games, there is more of a challenge
here. You have to balance your clutch control, weight distribution
and steering if you are to get anywhere, and mastering your
bike is a real art form
where this game really comes into its own is the two player
mode. Racing against your friends is so much more fun than
playing against the computer opponents. There is something
perversely pleasurable about watching as your friend's bike
crashes, leaving him to eat dirt while you perform a back
flip and ride off into the distance. And the hit mode mini-game
is bound to get your adrenaline pumping as you attempt to
take off from a number of designated jump areas and touchdown
within a targeted landing area. Racing against your friends,
or the computer opponents, to complete all jumps successfully
is extremely challenging.

a monster truck, biplane or helicopter. And, if you win the
race, you get to drive the vehicle you raced against. Or...
if you can't be bothered to keep racing, perform tricks to
earn points in order to buy vehicles, and unlock extra areas.

happy for months. It's also one of those games that you will
return to time and time again.
is also an extremely helpful collection of instructional videos
included. Theses teach you how to master the basics of riding
your bike as well as how to perform simple tricks.
only slight complaint I had was that the computer opponents
have a nasty habit of crashing into your bike, and knocking
you for six, every time you are in the lead. In one race I
was sent flying on three separate occasions in just one lap
- which was a little annoying.
a market saturated with racing games it's great to see that
there are still companies out there that are trying to offer
that little extra.
