Summary: I love to ride motocross, watch it and play it in games. I have played many if not all MX console games. This game has the most realistic physics, which to me, is the basis for any good MX/racing game. To me, the game captures the feel of riding, with smooth turning and acceleration.
Pretty good compared to most Console driven MX Games

Summary: First off...whoever wrote that this game has no big name riders is crazy. What about Mike Brown, Grant Langston, Jaime Dobb, Joel Smets, Frederic Bolley, and a lot more. Obviously you must not follow MX in depth. To the game! First impression was whoa, cool graphics.
Summary: Hey, how many races a year do Joel Smets, Jaime Dobb or even Mike Brown win? Exactly, they aren't big name riders. Brown might win a couple in 125 but that's it. A lot of people out there don't follow this great sport as in depth as others, so therefore most of them only know the big-named 250...
Summary: I don't play many games, but I do love to ride MX. My friend told me to buy MX 2002, so I went to the store to get it, but when I got there they had a demo of MX Rider playing so I decide to try it out first.
Summary: You don't have to be an MX fan like me to get into this game. For starters, this was made by the same people who did Spy Hunter and a bunch of other cool games, which is a good sign. The racing mode is really fast and fluid with good looking tracks and mud flying everywhere.
Summary: This game is only so-so. It reminds me too much of Motocross Mania on PS1. Unlike MX 2002 with RC, in this game you sort of just hold the throttle on and steer around the track. Although the framerate never slows down, and is much faster than MX 2002, it doesn't makethe game is any more fun.
Summary: I only like racing type games, and this one looks really great. The conrols are very smooth and the graphics are great(not the best I seen on playstation 2,but still very good).Anyone who likes any type of racing games should really check this out!!
