Excerpt: I think it is wrong to compare two games with each other, at least in a way that you pick an issue and say which one scores best. Each game has some unique characteristics and charm and that is the reason why I made a completely separate review for MX Unleashed, the second motor-cross game that I...
Excerpt: I've always found motocross games to be fun. Even though I have not real time experience with the sport (the extent of my knowledge stems from seeing the movie 'Motocrossed' on the Disney channel), the games usually offer a fun experience. At the top the heap has always been the MX series from THQ.

Conclusion: So, simply put: MXU is just about the most fun we’ve had on two wheels since Vice City. The clutch control and the handling, that strikes the perfect balance between arcade and sim, makes it easily accessible but difficult to master – and happily for once in an MX game, racing, skill and having fun...
Pros: The clutch., The handling and physics feel right., Tight, competitive racing., Well designed and challenging courses., Huge freestyle maps., Horrendous looking crashes!, Bonus vehicles including… a, !
Cons: Only 8 riders per race., Much like riding a real bike, you always seem to come off worse in collisions - OUCHY.
Conclusion: Ondanks dat MX Unleashed helaas geen online functie kent, zul je er regelmatig naar teruggrijpen om even lekker vrijuit te springen en te stunten. Hadden ze er wel een online functie ingestopt, dan was het cijfer waarschijnlijk nog een punt hoger uitgevallen.
Pros: Vijf zeer grote speelomgevingen, Maar liefst 46 parkoersen, Lekkere besturing
Cons: Clutch systeem werkt niet lekker, Geen online functie
