Excerpt: Roaring engines, screaming fans, huge air, and suicidal tricks. These are all the ingredients necessary for a successful dirt-bike competition. In THQ's new MX Superfly , Pacific Coast Power & Light attempts to capture the rush and excitement of dirt-biking and comes darn close to nailing it perfectly. Dirt-bike competitions can only hold your attention for so long, however, and unless you're a hardcore fan, MX Superfly will start to lose momentum pretty quickly.
Excerpt: Last year, THQ debuted its motocross series on the PS2 with MX 2002 featuring Ricky Carmichael. A pretty well-rounded game overall, MX 2002 was no miracle-worker, but it sure was an above-average racer that was enjoyed among its fans. This year's entry takes everything good from 2002 and refines it. The trick system has more dept; visually, the game one-ups itself; and an array of modes make the game well worth your time.
Excerpt: MX Superfly is the follow-up to last year's PlayStation 2 and Xbox motocross game, MX 2002 Featuring Ricky Carmichael. This year's game sticks pretty closely to last year's script, though many of the rough and clunky portions of MX 2002 are smoothed out here, making it an easier game to grasp for first-time players. It also adds an array of minigames that, for the most part, just get in the way of what the game does best.
Excerpt: THQ's has decent success with their MotorCross titles that ever since the original have been featuring Ricky Carmichael. The series began on the Playstation, and was well received by most critics. Though some may argue that the games were dull, overall THQ's MX titles were well polished. But for THQ it wasn't enough, they've conquered the 32-bit field, and now want to dominate the inexistent competition that is in the 128-bit world.
