With tight controls and numerous options, this is yet another dirt bike racing game that will appeal to fans of the sport and racing games alike. Like previous installments, Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Video Game 3 has you doing multi-lap races on dirt tracks full of jumps, bumps, and hairpin turns. It also boasts a ton of options when it comes to how your bike works, how the races are set up, and even your viewpoint. Same for the races, which include multiple single- and multiplayer events like a large career mode, multi-event championships, and one-off races. It also packs in numerous professional riders, 17 real tracks, and multiple real-life race events. And for those who like to play in the dirt, there's a deep course editor where you can design your own tracks and share them with fellow riders.
For the first time in this series, you can chose to play as a woman or a man, and can join a professional team, with many of the perks that entails. This also adds three new online modes as well as dedicated serves for multiplayer matches to make sure they all work well. It's just too bad the races take forever to load, that the music is terrible (though it can be turned off), and that even on the easiest settings, the competition is still unforgiving. But even with these issues, the tight controls, twisty tracks, and numerous options make Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Video Game 3 an engaging racing game for people who like to get down and dirty.
