Summary: the game just flat out stinks of problems like the ground graphics have dramaticly changed since relex. You can't even do a trick besides a wheelie, stopie, and when you turn your bike sideways in the air.The game is anone recomendation from me so save yourself some money. That is all I am going to say about the game because the game will show the rest of its problems if you try to play it and have fun.
Worst game EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: When I saw the TV commercial for this game it looked really cool. But when I bought and played this game it stunk. When you start you only have 2 outdoor tracks. You can customize your dirt bike or ATV the bad thing is that you only have a choice of changing the color of the handle bars. What I was really looking forward to was playing as a professional rider (Chad Reed) but you can't on ALIVE like you can on Unleashed.
Summary: This is my first review of anything on amazon. Mainly b/c THQ is such a drag. They never got Reflex quite right (so that online game play worked). You would think the time it took to develop this game they would have learned something. Instead, the physics are all messed up, rubber tires stop 220#, 50hp, state-of-the-art motocross bikes (apparently the developers have never ridden a bike before), and you end up "goon riding" all over the place.
Summary: I bought this game when i returned another game at Gamestop because i thought it would be pretty cool. When i got home and started to play it i was wrong. Everything about this game is bad. The sound, the graphics, and the gameplay as well. Why couldn't THQ make this game like reflex or Mx vs Atv unleashed!?!?
Summary: This game "SUCKS"! I hope that THQ gets the hint about this nonsense... This game has gone backwards as far as graphics, levels of the old games like untamed and unleashed. Now trying to get the codes for the JS compound to work is ridiculous!
Summary: FAILURE As an addicted REFLEX gamer I was highly anticipating the hyped up sequel ALIVE. I was disappointed to say the least. Here's the short and sweet. Most reviews I've read so far on this game glamour and rage about the graphics being far superior over Reflex. FALSE, I own a brand new $25,000 dollar entertainment system with a 82 inch 3D TV and this game could not keep up. The graphics were slow, glitchy, pixilated and flat out terrible.
Summary: Also the Free Stewart Compound Code Doesnt work. Save your recpit and the card with the code because you will have to send THQ a copy or photo of both for them for THQ to give you a code that works.
Summary: Alive sucks. Its a waste of your money. You get maybe 15 tracks, no Supercross or Freestyle. THQ put to much time into getting big riders names in the game that they forgot to make the game worth playing. Save your money and buy Reflex if you dont have it, because Alive seems like a PS2 game compared to the older Reflex.
