Epic game with enough fun to keep you revving for hours.
At first I was a little skeptical about playing this because I didn’t particularly enjoy the Developers other racing simulators, i.e Valentino Rossi: The Game and MXGP. I did, however, enjoy the Ride Series and spent hours busting my behind to develop my Ride career.
OVERALL FIRST EXPERIENCE
So I jumped right in and was immediately impressed by the level of detail put into the game. Starting with a quick Single 450 player to gauge the game from a newbie perspective. It was hard as hell, but I didn’t even care because I was having blast. The games mechanics are amazing, every touch of the analog and you see the result on the screen. After the first few laps I actually started to get the hang of it. May I add that, choosing a rider from 3D scanned riders, allows you to choose your favourite rider without feeling like your choosing some monster with the same name as your favourite rider. Milestone has done a great job in creating a customizable race experience in the single player mode.
CHAMPIONS WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS
Diving into championships was an experience! I started of playing the set championships, which was an absolute “jol”. The one thing I was super impressed with was the ability to make a custom championship, I played with this more than the standard championship mode. You can choose, again, the tier at which you want to ride, i.e 450 or the 250s, then you get to set out your own calendar with tracks. The best part, you can put custom tracks into your calendar, MINDBLOWN!
DEVELOP THAT CAREER, BOY!
The best part about games such as this is the career mode. Career is always the draw factor for such titles and let me tell you something, this career mode is EPIC! The developers have done an outstanding job in creating the perfect balance: The Detailed Career/Not So Over Detailed Career that you get confused and bored and delete the game never to return again…. balance. From creating your own character to building up the ranks, starting at 250 and ending up champion of the world. The career swallows you into its crazy adrenaline world. The character customization is awesome, you get slots that you can save and use when you want rather than jumping back and changing your outfit. You can also do the same in bike customization; you can change bike skins and builds, this was a HUGE win for me.
The game is an overall blast and you will be left with the feeling of wanting more. The physics are absolutely outstanding and create a real feel to the game that I struggled to find in other race simulators. If you’re a fan of easy racing, this is for you. If you’re a fan of hardcore control simulation, then this is for you. This game is so customizable to suit the player that I would recommend everyone plays this, whether or not you enjoy Supercross or not.
P.S – This is the most epic multiplayer game for race fans, hours and hours of laughing at your mate wiping out corner after corner.
