MXGP 2020 is a fun ride, a linear evolution for a series that still lacks of "wow effect". This new chapter gives a slightly better experience wheel on the ground, but overall it fail a little bit to involve the player with lackluster game modes.

MXGP 2020 feels like it was made for those who already enjoy the series. Whilst the gameplay is solid enough, it is often unforgiving, and with little in the way of new modes, you'll likely grow tired quickly.

MXGP 2020 is not a particular show of effort, and the consequence of this are noticeable on platforms that are not the PlayStation 5. On the new Sony flagship, however, a (rather primitive, admittedly) use of the DualSense is more than enough, and does a lot of work when it comes to feeling the bike in your hands. As for the rest, there are noticeable, but also not particularly impressive improvements on the (already good) MXGP 2019 experience. But let's be honest, what we're waiting for from Milestone is a true next gen game.

While recurring problems persist, MXGP 2020 is the new highpoint for Milestone's licensed racing series. Hugely reduced load times and more immersive gameplay than ever before help push this year's entry that extra little bit ahead, though it continues to be let down by its environments and lack of content. The addition of Race Director Mode - a transplant from the Monster Energy Supercross titles - at a later date will definitely help, but a more substantial update in 2021 would be even better.

Not quite the next-gen (currently gen, I guess) debut that motocross fans would have hoped for, MXGP 2020 nonetheless does a relatively commendable job of filling a distinctly motocross shaped hole in the PlayStation 5 library. It's just a shame that more hasn't been done to make use of the cutting edge technology that has brought MXGP 2020 to life - doubly so given the resoundingly solid core racing experience that developer Milestone has wrought and refined here.

Without many changes compared to the previous version and with some improvable details, MXGP 2020 will meet the expectations of the fans. Those who have enjoyed the 2019 installment will undoubtedly welcome this 2020 and for those just starting out in the franchise, this gateway may make them stay. However, those who expected a significant improvement with this generational jump would do well not to hope or stay in the previous installment, since they will not find something innovative here.

MXGP 2020 The Official Motocross Videogame is not a next-gen experience on the PlayStation 5 but more a port but if you're a fan of motocross, then you've come to the right place. Sure, it does need a bit more of a shine here and there but it does create the illusion of riding an off road motorbike, particularly with its streamlined controls and clever use of hapctics.

Unsurprisingly, it's the visuals that separate the next-generation version of MXGP 2020 from the previous-generation version.

For every time MXGP 2020 races forward, it seems to slip backwards somewhere else. Depending on what you want out of a motocross game, this could either be a cautious recommendation or a hard pass, neither of which are likely to impress you.
