One of the most notable changes about Monster Energy Supercross over the previous Milestone bike racers is the shift in game engine. This time around the experience has been built in Unreal Engine 4, the popular engine known for its capacity to bring stunning visuals, and it doesn’t take long to see the move was a good decision. The visuals within the game are absolutely incredible, from the bikes to the riders, and the tracks to the settings – all of which are officially licensed of course – there is plenty of eye candy to ensure everything looks the part. The controls are pretty simple, as tends to be the case with most racers, with the only real noteworthy differences being the brakes, with ‘A’ controlling the rear brake and LT controlling the front.

A strong level of customisation options for both your rider and bikes. Very high quality visuals of the bikes, core elements of the track and the clothing of the riders.

You have the option of six when you create your rider. You will have to choose wisely as this will be you ride, until you can afford to expand your collection of bike. Like the choice of clothes, the bike can be completely customized. When in career mode the appearance is determined by who is sponsoring your during your career. Once you have everything set for your rider you can set of your career path.

What experts didn't like
Unfortunately, nothing is really all to in-depth when it comes to the career mode, with social media messages proving to be the basic stuff we’ve seen from games over the past few years with congratulations upon wins, and the odd predictable comment here and there.

The Framerate problems persist online.

There are a few issues that haven’t been fixed from the preview either. The first is just how floaty Monster Energy Supercross feels when you collide with another rider or the track barriers. Spawning after a collision or fall is equally broken, with you – and the AI – just plopping right into the middle of the track regardless of any traffic.

However, when it came to testing online I grabbed Bobby to join me who was playing via an Xbox One X. As the race started the game lost frames and froze for me (as host the AI riders also froze), but not Bobby, and he was away and down to the first corner before the game unfroze.

There are other nagging problems I come across as it's clear the game isn't exactly optimized. Besides the framerate, the controls can feel floaty when I land on another racer or one of the soft track markers that get knocked onto the course.

Sadly, the Supercross may look great graphically but is does have a few bugs and issues, the main one is frame drops causing major issues during a race. And the load times for some of the features in the game feel like they take a life time.

An Overview On Bike Games

If you’re craving a high-speed trail trip over hills and through the mud, but you don’t want to shell out thousands for a sportbike or ATV, you’re in luck. There are plenty of video games that will give you the same thrills, chills and spills from the comfort of your own couch. 

The best bike games run the gamut from motocross racing matchups (like “MXGP 2: The Official Motocross Game”) to wild ATV tricks (like “Pure”). Microsoft holds the trophy for top bike games; the Xbox One and Xbox 360 have a slew of fun titles. 

There’s some info you should know if you’re new to the fast-paced world of bike games. First off, you’re not pedaling furiously on a bicycle. These games focus on motorcycle races, off-road motocross matchups and All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) stunts. 

Standard motorcycle races take place on a pavement track or road. Riders race in the same direction on a circular course, much like NASCAR races. The track is tighter than other forms of bike racing; some tracks are as narrow as 14 feet across. 

Traditional motorcycle road racing took place on closed-off public roads. Most of those events have given way to stadium races on dedicated tracks.  There are still some public road circuits in Europe, and you can experience the freedom of outdoor racing on the Xbox One’s “TT Isle of Man: Ride On The Edge.” 

Motocross racing is the rough-and-tumble version of motorcycle racing. Riders only race outdoors on closed-circuit tracks with right and left turns, high jumps and steep declines. The terrain varies throughout the race. Competitors have to navigate between muddy puddles, grass, sand and whatever else the course throws at them. “MXGP 2: The Official Motocross Game” is a top choice for motocross racing games. 

These races are designed to test precision skills, with up to 40 riders competing around tight turns with mud flying across their field of vision. Don’t call a motocross race a motorcycle race; motocross riders take pride in their tough outdoor style. 

ATV races happen either off-road or on an indoor dirt track. They push a driver’s skill set and their All-Terrain Vehicle to the limit. The best ATV riders in the world take massive jumps and messy corners at top speed. They also have to deal with “roost,” the dirt and rocks that get kicked up from the back end of their competitions’ bike. 

The Xbox 360’s “Pure” is a realistic ATV simulator that doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to gameplay. If your friends want to put their motocross skills up against your ATV tricks, a game like “MS vs ATV Reflex” on Xbox 360 is a perfect match. 

You’ll have a few more considerations to make once you’ve figured out which kind of racing intrigues you (or excites a lucky giftee). Our Tips & Advice will help you choose a game you’ll love playing. 

DWYM Fun Fact

“The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy” is more than a racetrack in our top four bike game picks. It’s a real motorcycle race on an island between Great Britain and Ireland, and it’s over 100 years old. 

In the early 1900s, bikers set sail for tracks on the mountainous Isle of Man, but they couldn’t make it up the steep hills on regular bicycles. Luckily, driving sports started making waves in Europe by 1906, and riders were finally completing the course on motorcycles. 

Today’s Tourist Trophy is a must-visit destination for bike fanatics around the world, but this race is not for newbies. Bikers race through the 37.5 mile loop at an average speed of 130 mph.  More than 242 riders have died since the Tourist Trophy’s inception, and hundreds more leave the track with serious injuries. It’s considered the world’s most dangerous motorcycle race, but that doesn’t stop adrenaline-fueled bikers from taking on the track every year.

The Bike Game Buying Guide

  • Make sure the game you’ve selected runs on your console. Our top four picks run on either the Xbox 360 or the Xbox One. If you’re dying to play a 360 game like “MX vs ATV Reflex,” but you have an Xbox One, you can still play them on your system. Newer Xbox Ones have built-in backward compatibility, and you can use special adapters to pair up older One models.
  • Do you like to ride solo, or are you a multiplayer master? You can challenge up to eight other players in online mode in “TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge.” If you want more multiplayer action, “Pure” can accommodate up to 16 online players. 
  • Most of these graphics-heavy racing games don’t offer split-screen multiplayer. The environments in these bike games are so intricate and the races are so fast that a split-screen option would take massive console memory and major engineering manpower to create. Luckily, you can still race your friends while you sit in the same room — you just have to go online to do it. 
  • Determine which elements of the bike game are the most important to you. Are you looking for a hyper-realistic motorcycle race around a real-world course? Pick up “TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge.” On the hunt for an all-ages motocross game with incredible graphics and thoughtful controls? “MXGP 2: The Official Motocross Video Game” delivers on every front. 
  • Controllers, command keys and combos vary in each racing game, and each control system is vying to give you the full engine-revving experience. “Pure” is known for using simple commands on the Xbox 360 controller so you can start racing your ATV ASAP. Serious competitors will love the dual controls in “MX vs ATV Reflex.” The game uses both joysticks simultaneously, one to control the rider’s movements and the other to control the bike’s movements. It adds a greater level of realism but might be trickier for younger players to pick up. Do some research on how your bike game interacts with the controller to make sure you’ll get the experience you want. 
  • How much personality do you want to inject into your gameplay? Customization options, like picking different road surfaces or choosing wheel sizes for your motorcycle, make your game a little more personal. They also extend how long you’ll play them since you have plenty of chances to see how different combinations perform on the trail. “MXGP 2: The Official Motocross Video Game” lets you customize almost every aspect of your virtual motocross experience.
