Motocross games are either a hit or a miss, and with the newly released MXGP 2019 – The Official Motocross Videogame, we’re happy to say you won’t be wasting your time or money. This one is spot on!
If you’re familiar to the MXGP series of games, it’s the franchise that aims to recreate the realism of Motocross into your finger tips. Comparing the evolution from the first release to this one, huge changes and improvements have been made including awesome new features and an interface that is user friendly.
The game menus and navigation have been restyled with a youthful tagged theme coupled with a pretty epic sound track. Kick things off by customising your rider, name and numbers, and your bike. Then get to choose a privateer sponsor or to join a team.
Once you get all that out the way, you get thrown into your first race for career mode. The gameplay feels a lot faster and smoother. In a realistic fashion the track breaks away during the race creating new lines throughout the laps and makes the race a lot more interesting. If you know your way around the controls already, it’s easy to get back into it and start winning those races. If not, it will take a while to perfect those dual stick cornering, clutching, drifting around corners to get those lap times down.
It’s time to drop the gate and live the thrill of the MXGP 2019 season.For the first time in the series you can take part in the current MXGP season, where you can step into the world of a professional rider and race as an official championship rider, on the official bikes and teams of MXGP and MX2.
Compete in the official 2019 roster and on the current tracks racing events from around the world. Dynamic weather changing modes during a race add to the realism. It could be overcast at the start of a race and by the end it could be raining, effecting the track and possibly your end result.
The Track Editor is back, and to our relief, it’s user friendly. Easy to use and manage while editing and you can now quickly edit your Motocross track from scratch, test it, and upload it online to share with the world. Players can select from four different environments to set track, all with different features; Jungle, Beach, Forest and Desert. Online, you can race your friend’s edited tracks or the best voted tracks, or challenge users to race on your track, which makes for hours of fun while racing some of the dopest tracks out there.
The Playground. Here you get to ride around freely in a huge open map filled with jumps, mini tracks and outrides. Added to The Playground are marked out mini events that you can use to earn extra rewards, as well as improve your riding abilities. You can also create your own waypoint races in the Waypoint Mode and then race your friends, or have the option to download paths uploaded by other users.
The only small gripe we had is that the game can have long loading times when getting into the events, other than that we guarantee you won’t be disappointed in this one!
It’s new, fresh and youthful. Easy to get into and worth hours of Dirt Bike action and fun!
