MXGP - The Official Motocross Videogame
Motorbikes come in many different shapes and sizes, not to mention all the different classes and engines they feature. Hence, whether it’s lightning-fast superbikes going around a MotoGP circuit, imposing choppers cruising the highways, or the sturdy touring motorcycles capable to deal with any kind of terrain, there is a bike for anyone, regardless of what you want to achieve with it.
Race in the mud and become a pro motocross champion
MXGP - The Official Motocross Videogame deal with motocross bikes, which is yet another family or motorcycles that’s designed to excel in harsh off-road conditions. However, rather than having to climb mountains or deal with country roads, these bikes are built to race, which means that they also have to run at decent speeds, while dealing with thick mud and slippery terrain.

Customize your bike and your rider
Speaking of which, although you have the option to choose between any of the official riders, it is also possible to create your own from scratch, in case you want to introduce yourself into the competition. Thus, you have the possibility to customize every aspect of your alter-ego, as well as personalize the bike to feature the desired color scheme and various other visual cues to make it your own.
Speaking of which, the visual quality is above average and you should really be able to immerse yourself in the atmosphere, thanks to the detailed bikes and the nicely animated riders. Not only that, but the environments are pretty nice as well, especially when you consider the fact that the mud responds to your bike and you can leave quite the deep tracks on it, depending on how many revs you happen to push.
