A strong first outing on the PS4 that's pretty great as is and worth considering for anyone at all interested in motocross. Next year's version should be quite interesting.

Overall MXGP provides a wonderful racing experience. The unpredictable physics, terrain deformation and challenging opposition (whether it be online players or AI set to hard) combine to make a gritty racing game, which you can have plenty of fun with thanks to the sheer about of content. Truthfully, MXGP is at its best in the online season mode which is ultimately dependent on how busy the servers are.

Overall, MXGP 19 has ended up being a great game. I didn't think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did, to be honest. It still leaves some things to be desired, such as a ropey physics model and a lack of controller options, but there's some fantastic fun to be had here.. Some of the tracks are just incredibly tricky and technical, adding a layer of depth which just isn't found in more straightforward racers. The downside being, the same as any other racing game apart from the very few, replayability. Hopefully the multiplayer aspect does well and lots of people buy the game and should be quite fun.

If you appreciate arcade or racing simulations that aren't just about speed or horsepower but rather the balance, control, and rhythm it takes to manipulate them, MXGP would make for a most reliable partner at the starting line.

After the success of MotoGP 14, MXGP: The Official Motocross Videogame left me cold. While the racing mechanics are fine, the boring progression is made worse by a number of questionable design decisions. Worse yet, none of the real world tracks stand out and the graphics aren't very good for a PlayStation 4 game. MXGP is a big disappointment.

MXGP is a solid stab at recreating the muddy thrills of motocross that excels on the simulation side of things. One for the fans.

A title like this can be easily overlooked with a discounted price, featuring a sport perhaps many do not know much about and no real marketing push but MXGP is actually a pretty thorough exhibition of the sport of MXGP. It's decidedly more realistic take on the sport of MXGP may not endear fans looking for a more over the top MX vs ATV like experience but fans of the sport of motocross should enjoy this.

An involving racer that struggles to offer a solid challenge.

MXGP is a mixed blessing of a game and those dying for a current-gen motocross game might be tempted by it. The solid controls and reasonably-exciting gameplay make it fun for a while, but the modes are far too similar with only surface-level changes beyond the overall length of the events to set them apart.

For as much fun as I had with MXGP, Milestone fail to tread any new ground, presenting a functional and exciting racer that doesn't offer anything more than its solid core mechanics.

If you're into motocross, there is definitely some fun to be had with MXGP. It's just a shame it keeps getting in the way of itself, and at this pricepoint, it is hard to recommend it to anyone but fans of the sport.

Though superior to 2013's MUD, MXGP fails to reach the standards of Milestone's top racing franchise, MotoGP.

MXGP: The Official Motocross Game hasn't found itself unseated on the PS4, but this isn't enough of an improvement to warrant a second buy. The title's scrubbed up just fine on Sony's next-gen system, but it still bears the telltale signs of a PS3 game. A straightforward campaign and surprisingly solid online mode make this an enjoyable enough ride for newcomers, but those that are a little pickier about what they play may want to wait and see what improvements next year's edition brings.

MXGP has a solid, interesting control scheme that is rewarding when you figure out its quirks. The lack of meaningful content, however, in addition to its graphical presentation, severely limits any impetus to continue playing it.
