Wondering whether to pick this up for my Xbox One. Was watching some of the championship round in France this morning and looked so much fun. Hadn't watched any of this type of racing for many a year tbh. Only issue for me is the controller. I use a wheel for my racing but would have to use the pad for this and I am not so great on that lol.

I'm not sure are you even safe eith that controller too... like I said earlier... my BOTH controllers aren't recognized ?!? Maybe I'm the most unluckiest person on Planet but ...somehow I doubt.
As for the game... I've played it with my keyboard ! Dammit I thought I would never have to say this, since I have FOUR different controllers AND a wheel! (G27, which I didn't even try with the damn game cuz it would make me feel really silly to drive motorcycle with it and maybe even he wouldn't work too:alien:)
So... game isn't bad at all. For sure better than MXGP2, gameplay, collisions (with other drivers. although landings do feel a bit too soft, generic ..somehow), menus (you can set graphic inside the game, I swear, can you believe it?), even sounds, graphic (much better, some shots I take look like real life photos, I swear!) but just that damn controller(s) non-recognition... :(

Sucks that they changed to UE4, their old engine allowed people to unlock DLCs months before release.

Is there any further comment on the AI? I watched the VVV video earlier this morning and he was racing the medium AI and it seemed very easy for him but he did say he had played it a lot. HOw many AI levels are there?

Still thinking of picking this up... I keep wondering about picking up a motor bike racing game but the controller issue always puts me off.

I got this on Steam this past weekend. It's been a long time since I played any game without a steering wheel involved. Very impressed with this game! I raced MX for many years (40) and this is the closest thing to reality I've experienced. All the fun with no broken bones.

Reviews seem thin on the ground, No doubt because of the staggered release.

Here's mine, Keen to hear from others.

The best damn MX game ever made. If you have an interest in dirt bike games then buying this should be a no brainer.

Now, I'm sure plenty of people can find plenty to dislike about it,People are like that. But I can't think of a better game in this genre, stretching back to MCM1 .

Personally I think the audio is not great, The graphics could be better, But the game play is solid, The bike reacts in a reasonable,consistent and logical manner and this allows for banging bars all around the track.Sure you can float jumps a little but you get rewarded for keeping her low and getting the back wheel hooked up in the dirt as soon as possible so there is more technique involved then just jump as far as you can and find a sweet spot to land.

Personally I prefer the big natural terrain tracks so the content for me is right on the money, Glen Helen is epic. First-person view is stunning, and the feel of opening her up and screaming down a straight with bikes inches away on either side as we all race to steal a single line through a corner is exhilarating.

Very annoying this if you walk with only the fifth gear of the bike even so it wins the race easy :(.
Is there any way to improve the AI of the game?

Would it be possible to improve the AI of the game?
Disappointed too much :(
Could also have done with the 2017 season :(
Otherwise the game is quite nice

Will the guy that created ama 2016 for mxgp 2 be able to do it for this game aswell? 2017 season :D Also i would like to see A.I. improvments of couse if people would like to sit around and search for the solutions :) And who knows if we go into extreme levels we may also be able to modify the physics like in the motogp series... I don't know though, just bought the game and it's now installing!
I unpack all the game, can`t load in unreal editor, it ask for pay plug-ins, so, i`m stuck, but! there is other way i`m still trying, this way, like Street Fighter V, no success still :(
That`s for graphics, for control files like AI i think we can edit they anyway.


BTW there is DLC ready around the net ;)

I bought the game, uninstall MXGP2 and fun is about to start. :inlove:
At least I thought...
Damn game won't recognize my Logitech 3D which I use for games like these.
Ok, I'll plug generic playstation type controller (although I hate to play with it, I used to use ordinary joystick for motorcycles) that will solve it, right ? But no. Again... no recognition. :poop:
So I was left to play with keyboard. Which I eventually did. But that sucks. And I can't give any game review based on ...that.
So for me, unless I solve it (somehow?) only way out would be to refunding.
Such a shame. And shame that I'll have to re-install MXGP2 once again.
And it's not like I'm the only one.. internet is full with people who have problems with their controllers in Milestone games.
One good thing about the game is that they move (finally!) graphic settings to within the damn game. Better late then never, it's only 2017. :rolleyes:

I used to play that game too.
This game don't remind me of that one. At all.
Where you can "freeroaming" in this one ?
DID YOU SOLVE CONTROLLER PROBLEM?
I had same problem using other controllers. MXGP3 supports xbox360 and xbox one controllers only unfortunately. So I used x360ce to get my other controllers (non-xbox) working. Use the 64-bit version for MXGP3
