This dirt bike racer isn't made for casual fans, but it has tons of modes and options for serious competitors and players willing to dedicate themselves to the tracks. In MXGP Pro, you enter a series of professional events designed to challenge your skills as a racer of dirt bikes on closed, lumpy tracks in multi-lap events. The game has an incredible amount of detail and lets you micromanage all of the major parts of your bike to tune it to suit your racing style. This ability to customize your bike also means you have to be mindful of your racer's position on the bike and the bike's position in the air, because the game's physics are realistic as well. If you lean too far forward or backward during a jump, you'll tumble and crash off the bike as soon as you land.

Unfortunately, crashes aren't kept to the racetrack. Not only does MXGP Pro take a while for events to load, it occasionally crashes while you're waiting for a race to start. At other times during review, the game's physics went so awry that slamming into a pole sent riders flying like Superman. It's also annoying that the menu text is too small to read if you sit at a reasonable distance from your TV. But the most frustrating aspect -- for casual fans, anyway -- is that, despite the game offering difficulty and gameplay customization options, it's too difficult for all but the most serious fans of motocross and motocross video games. Still, if you're looking for a realistic dirt bike racing game with realistic physics and tons of details, MXGP Pro more than lives up to its name.
