Once again it's time to take the road less paved in the newest installment of this realistic motocross racing series. Like the other racing games in this franchise, MXGP 2019: The Official Motocross Video Game once again casts players as your choice of a real pro motocross rider who engages in a series of multi-lap races on dirt tracks full of bumps and jumps. This year's game boosts the usual compliment of options, from the deep customization of your bike and rider, to the numerous adjustments you can make to the races. It also has a variety of ways to play, including a deep single-player "Season" mode, three quickie solo options ("Grand Prix," "Time Attack," and "Championship"), and online multiplayer. All of which come complete with authentic physics and handling, regardless of which weight class of bike you chose to use. The only downside here is that the difficulty is so high that racers will face a significant challenge every time they start their engines. Even with every single assist turned on in the settings, this is still an extremely hard game that will test your racing abilities.

MXGP 2019 not only has the real riders, tracks, and events for the 2019 season, but this installment also adds weather as an option, which can seriously impact how your bike handles, adding yet another layer of challenge and variety. Further boosting the track action around the world is a newly added track editor that's deep and fun to use. It's surprisingly easy to create your own courses that you can then share online. More importantly, the long load times that made last year's edition far less fun have all been fixed. That's why, if you want a realistic dirt bike racing experience, MXGP 2019: The Official Motocross Video Game is a fun afternoon drive.
