Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 3 out of 5 by from Boring 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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....:^)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than the reviews state! First let me say that this is my first MX game so I have nothing to compare it too. However I have over 15yrs of real riding experiance and can tell you this game seems pretty realistic. I've seen this game has been getting hammered by reviews, but I still chose this game over the others due to its realistic feel. I was undecided on which MX to purchase since so many people have different reviews on all the games. The free roam maps are a blast and remind me of really riding at the quarries or sand pits. The only downfalls of the game are lack of bikes, (no 250-500 two-strokes). There are a lot of tracks, you just have to gain experiance points to unlock them. Earning experiance points is super easy! Riding on the free roam sand dunes will build up your points fast. There are tons of rider mods (even change the name on back of your jersey) as well as bike mods. Again, you have to put in some playtime in order to enjoy all the bike mods and riding apparel. The racing is sweet! The other AI riders will actually crash at times in spectacular fashion. I often get a laugh as the #1 hits a barrier and I take first place. Racing in the first person view is pretty cool. Awesome view when launching off a jump. Then after your tired of racing and free roam you can find your favorite jump and perform tricks and try to smash records. I have played free roam online and it is pretty neat seeing other riders launching of a huge dune. I have yet to try online racing though. So, If you have real riding experiance or have not played any other MX games, I would advised getting this one. One Youtube review stated that this game plays differently then Reflex, so if you have played Reflex you have to clear your head and start fresh.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very good I did not enjoy this game very much. There is no traditional career mode just a level system. You pretty much get a handful of tracks and you have to level grind over and over to unlock a few more. The graphics were okay and I did like the customization and the level deformation but that wasnt enough to keep me interested.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing Of Value. the game just flat out stinks of problems like the ground graphics have dramaticly changed since relex. You can't even do a trick besides a wheelie, stopie, and when you turn your bike sideways in the air.The game is anone recomendation from me so save yourself some money. That is all I am going to say about the game because the game will show the rest of its problems if you try to play it and have fun.
