    Supercross The Game Released 4.jpg
    Monster Energy Supercross - The Game releases today for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    Ok so technically it pushed out a little bit too early in some countries with a little faux pas causing some regions to get the game a little in advance, but the developers have reacted quickly to wipe clean the leaderboards so everyone starts afresh from todays official release...

    Benefitting from the official licence to recreate the Monster Energy Supercross season of 2017, and featuring all the official riders and teams from both the main 450 and supporting 250 SX categories, Supercross The Game is Milestone's attempt to fill the obvious gap in the off road bike racing marketplace as it recreates an increasingly popular form of racing both in Europe and America.

    Featuring accurate recreation of the stadium dirt circuits found during the 2017 season, impressively gamers will also have the opportunity to create their own tracks using the in game editor feature, designed to simply and conveniently allow the player to build their own stadium locations using a substantial set of assets and layout creators provided by the development team - all shareable online...

    On the customisation front it is not just the circuits that will be adjustable, the main game itself will allow players to create custom riders and apparel as well as adjust the bikes to their own liking.

    Supercross The Game is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    I wonder... what are those two users found funny in the post above ? :confused:
    They were probably drunk anyway. Agree, sometimes feel like it's the best condition to be in before coming here.

    Anyway...
    Standard quality Milestone game I would say, it's too early to give some deep insight, physic similar to MXGP3, new helmet cam, interesting track build feature. Not really expert in this Supercross field so I have to decide if I need both MXGP and this one. Stays on disc, for now. :p

    Think I'll wait for some reviews before I decide to buy. I'll give it a couple weeks for the haters to give up on their attention seeking and hopefully some reasoned reviews will see the light of day.

    Personally I rated MXGP3 quite highly but didn't really spend enough time on it to warrant the purchase.

    Still feels empty without Eli Tomac.

    But here's a race I went ahead and recorded on the KX250F.
    So far I love the game, despite it's criticism.

    I think this game is great, way better than mxgp3 and far better than any supercross game ever before.
    It's missing a few bits, there's track deformation but u can't then law it down into a rut.

    Enjoying it so far,visually it's really nice. Only gripe with the physics so far is the bike doesn't dig in enough for me.

    That looks awesome! Is the GoPro cam something you can race with or an after-the-fact replay option?

    Gamepad I assume?

    Is just an replay option.
    And as you may see it have such a huge FOV that will guarantee you some serious headache. Trust me. That, if you don't get some kind of epilepsy seizure. I don't know did they really try to watch it for more than ten seconds or what... :alien:
    You got actually TWO go-pro replay cams, one on the side of the helm and, like this one, on top.
    Sadly...
    Milestone guys never realize that someone may want to actually drive with this view (hey we don't need T-cams in F1 then also, right? just save them for a replay) so they can keep providing us with same cams over and over again.
    Ok, like I said earlier... there IS one new cam, driver view with helm visor on.
    To me personally they all have too big FOV but what can I do... maybe someone will be able to mod it. Not that they make it easy for modders files are like always packed.

    How good would it be on VR?

    I use a PS4 pad, and sadly the view is replay only. BUT, there is a pretty neat view from inside the helmet, which muffles the sound like the actual helmet and the view appears mostly how it would through the eyes of the rider. To me frankly, the GoPro view is way too shaky for consistent riding.

    It would be groundbreaking if this game had VR.

    Fantastic, if you have sampled MX Bikes in VR.
    Sadly Milestone have indicated in a forum response in the past that they're not interested in VR:(

    Got mildly interested in this thanks to one of the best ones: MTX: Mototrax (awesome feeling and lots of fun) where you could string tons of tricks together and hold them as long as you wanted, and you could "rock" the bike in air by leaning back and then forward in order to clear a jump if you were slightly short. It had a freeride place with jumps around a forest and a neighborhood of houses etc. It had motocross and supercross races. It had trick competitions. It had tons of stuff and the driving is actually good even to this day because you can get so good at it with practice.

    This new game looked great(!) but it felt super super arcade. No weight to the bike and i could land almost any way without falling. Like nose first into the ground was no problem. I got no feeling from it. Just felt super light and arcady.
