Sadly, the last supercross game I enjoyed was Supercross Circuit, which was released a LONG time ago on the original Playstation. If it captures the tight tracks of the real series, it could be a much belated treatement.

So from what I can tell, this is using the tracks from the 2017 season. I saw some gameplay a couple days ago. They had Minneapolis and Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. I recognized it as the 2017 layout because Sam Boyd had a super long straight entering the stadium that ended with a big jump heading into the corner, something that I was concerned about for the actual race back in May. I can say that the scaling on this game looks to be about 1:1, and that's awesome because often times in motorcross games the physics engine makes it difficult to ride on a narrow track.

So I'm super excited about this game. MX vs ATV had DLC for all the FIM Supercross tracks last season, but MX vs ATV hasn't been very good and didn't have nearly as much detail as this new Milestone game does.

What really surprises me about this is they've gotten the detail on the stadiums down really well. The seating arrangement, the advertisements hanging from the rafters, the advertisements on the sides of the track and walls of the floor, and the architecture of the building... All how they are in reality, nobody has done that in a Supercross game before.

Ahhh I really like Supercross. It starts the first weekend in January and it fills up my racing fix while all the other series are dormant. And this game comes out pretty early in the season. Going to be exciting.

Stop buying Milestone bugged crap... Please... It will be the same garbage over and over, every year, with slightly different interface/graphics and the same bugs.

I'll never buy another Milestone game after the huge disappointment Ride was. They simply don't give a crap about customers.

I dont know where they get their money from.
Am half inclined to think Sportstream, the people that own the rights to motocross, actually own Milestone, that might explain how naff these games are, as they are a hopeless promoter, in the UK you cant watch MXGP anywhere regularly and it is always delayed, despite it being one of the best attended outside motorsport in most countries!

Quite enjoyed the first game, but the rest have been patches a la F1, FIFA etc etc, buy one in the second hand bin try it, give it back.

And what about patching Ride, MXGP or VRTG? :O_o:
Milestones makes a lot of games, but none of them is done properly to the end.

Its such a shame, I have always been into "bikes" and indeed in my younger years used to race them.

AC AM iRacing R3E (PC2 ..eh its getting there slowly)...they all come close to the real thing and give you a thrill ... so why cant this happen with bikes ?

They'll have to add AA and harder difficulty for this one. MXGP3 was fun, but I'm not buying another game that's "almost there", at least not full price.

It's called MX Simulator. But without a FFB motorcycle body that leans over, it's pretty hard to simulate the controls of a bike vs a car.

Never heard of it, but just done a search and see that there is a demo version, so going to give it a try ..thanks
Don't be put off by the graphics, the community mods are in insane amounts, the entire MXGP, AMA MX and SX season track list is on there. I suggest going to tmfactory-racing.com if you do decide to get it.

The game is hard as hell, unless you switch on arcade mode (which is less fun).
