I have looked at this game and from what I am seeing reflex is better. All the pictures look funny. I will just have to wait and see.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Thornton527 Very good overall game
I've had this game for a little over 3 years now. I just bought the new MX vs ATV Supercross game and I think this game is actually a lot better. I know I'm kinda straying from this review but if you're looking for something similar to Alive, MX vs ATV Supercross isn't the game for you. Like I said this game is great even though it's been out for 5 years now. The graphics in the game are very nice. The sound is also decent and the gameplay compared to every other MX game I've played is the best. I gave the lasting appeal a 10 though because it is still my favorite video game, I just can't stop playing it. I didn't give it a total 10/10 though because of the things. 1: There's not enough tracks, eventually you get bored of playing them and have to resort to buying the DLC tracks. 2: There's no career mode, which kinda disappointed me also. But overall, it's a great long term game and people still play it online to his this day.

Rated 8 out of 10 by KP17 MX vs ATV Alive
I've had a PS3 for a while and have many games on it. One day I felt like playing ATV Offroad Fury 4 for PS2 and I also watched the X Games. This inspired me to get this game. PROS: The graphics and gameplay are awesome. The sound is very good as well. The stunt modifier and the right stick work so well together and you can tweak out your whips just like the pros. (Not even trying to sound cheesy). CONS: Trophies in this game are extremely easy to get. I mean seriously, I have 40% completion with trophies and I've had the game for 7 DAYS! But it kind of is a good thing at times yet sad. Also, there is no career mode, which I would've expected with the last game in the series. What made me a bit angry is that Travis Pastrana isn't an included character. Lastly, it can get boring after maybe 3 to 4 to 5 hours of gameplay. THE VERDICT: Since this game is $20 and the last game in the series, consider buying it because it is plainly AWESOME!!!!!!

I was really exited for this game to come out, because I really like reflex and was hoping the game play would be very similar. Well not so much, I feel THQ went one step forward with reflex and two steps backwards for alive. The warm up track that would appear while loading in untamed and reflex is gone as well as every other vehicle other than dirtbikes and atv's. The bikes in the game feel similar to how they felt in untamed instead of reflex and there is only three different types of riding in this one, Nationals, Short Track (Short National Track), and Free Ride. There also is no career, what the game does is have you race to get XP points which help you unlock more tracks and vehicles. Overall, I am not impressed with this game and would probably tell you to save your money and buy reflex instead if you already haven't because I can honestly say I don't consider this game that fun.
Rated 1 out of 10 by rushfreak Worst game EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I saw the TV commercial for this game it looked really cool. But when I bought and played this game it stunk. When you start you only have 2 outdoor tracks. You can customize your dirt bike or ATV the bad thing is that you only have a choice of changing the color of the handle bars. What I was really looking forward to was playing as a professional rider (Chad Reed) but you can't on ALIVE like you can on Unleashed. Also there is no supercross what the heck is up with that and the free play has no jumps. If you are a fan of Reflex or Unleashed I highly recommend that you do not get this game and keep playing Reflex and Unleashed. What a waste of $40. If you think i am wrong about this game get the pre-owned game so you do not make the same mistake I did.

This actually looks pretty good I might rent it. I've always loved the ATV Offroad Fury games but I think after 4 they fell in popularity so I haven't had a atv game since ATV OF4 on PS2. This game MIGHT change that if it isn't too arcade like. My problem with 99% of new offroad games is there is no challenge you can turn without drifting or braking at all it takes 0 skill. Pure is a good example of a game that's way too easy which was a big disappointment because I was looking for a realistic atv game with upgradeable parts and pure was it till I saw the goofy physics. I want realism, leave the cartoon physics to the grade schoolers with their boost meters and stunt gauges.

I bought MX Alive thinking it was going to be a big improvment over Reflex (the last MX vs ATV game). It was but it wasn't. The graphics were brighter and more relistic and the bike sounds were lightyears ahead of Reflex's, but the gameplay was a little stale, it doesn't feel like you're going as fast and in a lot of the corners, it seemed like you had to come to almost a dead stop to safey go through them without flying off the track. All the bikes are fake, unless you buy the real ones online which they're two bucks a piece, no thanks, I'd rather play Mud FIM Motocross world championship and ride them for free. The Leveling system in the game (similar to COD's) does not work it at all, it takes FOREVER to level up and finally unlock new tracks. You have to ride the same four over and over to level up and unlock new ones, the nationals are okay but the shorttracks to be honest are really stupid. Also... THERES NO SUPERCROSS!!! I really don't understand what's so taboo about supercross in this game, they came out with two supercross tracks as DLC but they're tiny and aren't much fun, and you can't play them online. This game kinda fools you, It looks and sounds beautiful but things to do in it are very miniscule and the things you can do get redundant quickly. The only way to have some real fun and keep it interesting is to play it online. I only recommend it to other MX racers in real life.

This game gets extremly boring after the first 15 minutes, graphics and gameplay are amazing. No supercross and you can only race 3 tracks until you level up. No career mode. However there will be an update to get real bikes, more tracks and supercross as soon as the PS store is available. I only know this because I used to race with one of the pro atva racers in the game, and he has a copy of the game with everything unlocked in it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by midnightclubmadman this is a true review
I chose this game because i have the other mx games and they are a blast... This is just like the real game i have 12 years of riding quads dirt bikes and go carts under my belt and i feel this is as close as it can get... The freeride maps are really fun and so are the races and it doesnt get any more realistic than this but i would recomend dirt 3 or midnight club los angelas complete edition over this any day.... all and all great game though....:^)
