Monster Energy Supercross 5 feels like more of the same, but the racing elements are strong despite not being welcoming to new players.

Monster Energy Supercross 5 is what you would expect of another entry in the Monster Energy Supercross series. With a lot of the series mainstays as well as some newer features, players have a plethora of options to choose from. I just wish it was more welcoming for newer players.

Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame 5 has certainly made the game the most accessible in the series allowing newcomers to not feel too overwhelmed. But the game still feels very much like its predecessor with most of the modes only featuring subtle tweaks.

Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame 5 should please fans of the series. The additions make the game more accessible than ever and is more fleshed out thanks to the new content. The main drawback is the lack of haptic feedback in relation to the track surface.

Now five entries into the Monster Energy Supercross series, the latest is running on fumes. While the sim-like mechanics of its driving model are nice, the overall package is bland, repetitive, and shows barely any progression from past entries.

Monster Energy Supercross 5 takes all the main gameplay elements of the past edition, without making huge changes. For this reason, despite the work done by the Milestone team being overall quite good, those who expected a clear step forward compared to the earlier entries could be partially disappointed. Among the positive aspects, some tweaks to the physics and greater accessibility should be noted. Among the negative ones, the lack of significant new features stands out: more content would undoubtedly have improved a gaming experience which, however, remains more than enjoyable.

There was great curiosity for this fifth chapter dedicated to the world of American Supercross. Milestone has confirmed the good things it had already shown with the MXGP series, even if the overall result is not exceptional.

‎The Milestone team has developed a good game‎‎. Monster Energy Supercross 5 fulfills its function, entertaining and simulating the world of Supercross. We are facing a delivery difficult to master and that will take a while to know how to control it 100%, especially if you are new to the saga.‎

The bottom line here is that I had an absolute blast with Monster Energy Supercross 5, and it delivered an experience that was fun, satisfying, authentic, and addicting. Adding Monster Energy Supercross 5 to your rotation is a must, whether you're a newcomer, casual, hardcore fan, or just a fan of racing in general. If you have never played this series before, now is the time. If you're a veteran, your voice is being heard, and you can feel it everywhere in the newest edition of this long-running franchise.

Based on the current model of Monster Energy Supercross 5 that dates back to its inception, this may be the most complete version of the game despite its legacy issues.

The new motorcycles are similar to other games from Milestone - quite fun, but without innovations and in addition with outdated graphics.

There is no doubt that Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 5 is one of the best current titles in its segment, and even with some points for improvement, it offers an incredibly deep system of control and simulation of the sport. Correct in both content and visual style, it proves to be receptive to dedicated fans, but uninviting to new adepts.

Motocross games have come a long way since I played MX vs. ATV: Unleashed in 2005, and Monster Energy Supercross 5 proves it. Sure, the presentation is disappointing, but the developer’s attention to gameplay and controls overshadows any fault. While the developers could do more to help ease new players in, the game is still a must-play for Supercross enthusiasts.

If you’re a supercross fan, it’s very easy to recommend Monster Energy Supercross 5. As ever, if you own one of its recent predecessors, it doesn’t really offer much that’s genuinely new. But improvements across the board, from handling to career features, make this the pinnacle of the series; it’s a must-have for ardent fans of the sport, and great for those looking for a way-in.

‎Much of this was already applicable to the predecessors of this fifth part, so there are question marks about this annual update. If you don't necessarily need to have the latest team updates and racer names, you can also work with one of the earlier parts. This fifth part is therefore especially a ‎‎must ‎‎for the die hard fans.‎

Even if I consider this the next installment in the series and the title doesn't stand up as a sequel, since not much has changed, I rate it as a standalone work. The artificial intelligence of the riders is at a lousy level which is an unforgivable flaw. However, this is balanced by the possibilities that are in the game. In particular, I was most pleased with the track editor. Despite the shortcomings, this is still an excellent motocross game with much to offer. Unfortunately, it has to let go of the fact that it is fun after all.

If this were a preview of an upcoming game then I would be saying I’m excited to see what the team achieve with the final product, but Monster Energy Supercross 5 left me conflicted

Monster Energy Supercross 5 is a good driving title based on this sport, thanks to its multiple customization options and gameplay. Very complete both for single player and in its multiplayer facet.

While not introducing many new features compared to the fourth chapter, Monster Energy Supercross 5 reconfirms the good qualities seen in the past: a lot of fun and content that will satisfy the most hardened Supercross fans. Despite a visual component that could be improved, Milestone has worked more than satisfactorily on the physics section, setting a gameplay that is never trivial and accessible to everyone. In the future we wouldn't mind seeing a bit more, but until then the Supercross niche can still sleep easy and enjoy a title that meets their expectations.

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Game 5 has some great improvements over the past games Milestone has released, but they still have a long way to go to make a staple of a game for the Supercross/Motocross fans. Other than that, it’s a fun game to pick up if you’re a fan of the sport and want to do some easy drop-in drop-out online racing.
