In a genre monopolised by the Trials series, MX Nitro can’t quite compete on the same level, but it gets points for trying something a little different.
MX Nitro needed something striking to get noticed, and it just doesn’t have that special spark. It remains a good motocross game, but one that consistently sits in the middle of the mud-sprayed pack.
Getting on the bike and trying again and again can be fun for a while, but eventually you may find it's best to put it back in the garage and find something that doesn't break your spirit as much as your avatar's body.
Nitro is a challenging and fun motorcycle game that doesn’t really do much wrong, the difficulty curve and lack of bike customisation being the main standouts. It’s a really solid title that is well worth considering.
MX Nitro is an interesting game because despite how difficult I found the campaign, I kept retrying, sometimes spending an hour on a single level. The action just kept flowing with near-instant restarts and fun trick combos. Two things will turn a lot of players off, however: lack of true multiplayer and price.
It’s fast, fun, can be enjoyed by yourself or with friends online, and has enough customisation and track variation to keep me entertained for hours to come. It could have been improved by real bikes and a greater variation in music, but this is a minor chink in the armour of this wonderful game.
MX Nitro is the next level Trials clone. It not only throws us into the race agains the clock, but often also the other riders. If you loved trials you'll feel at home when it comes to the gameplay of MX Nitro.

It's a decent bike racing game that's held back by pushing a linear focus while also having ridiculous AI to drive against making it a not so enjoyable time.
