Excellent game, super fun.

My 8 & 10 year old boys love this game. Some real life riding motions, super competitive, filled with good role models and some goal setting. Get your kids this game, better yet, get your kids a dirt bike! Nothing better than going riding with your family.

Is It Any Good?

While this dirt bike racing game has tight, forgiving controls and plenty of options, it also has some annoying issues that keep it from the winner's circle. Like real Supercross events, Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame has you driving a stripped-down all-terrain motorcycle on jump-filled dirt tracks in multi-lap events. Your objective? Get over the finish line first, of course. Good thing this game has intuitive, arcade-like controls, since your competition aren't inclined to go easy on you. It also has much of the depth of a more realistic sim, though it's all laid out in a way that's easy for non-Supercross fans to understand.

The thing is, as fun as this racing game may be, it's sometimes undermined by what would seem to be easily fixed problems. First, there are times when the physics are too unrealistic, such as when you make such an impossibly long jump that you go flying off the track. It also doesn't help that the sound your bike makes when you're in mid-air is a lot like the one a game console emits when it hits a game-breaking bug and seizes up. Which may be realistic, but it's also annoying and a little unnerving. But if you can deal with occasionally flying through the air like Superman, and that aggravating sound effect, you'll have a speedy good time with Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame.
