Top Critic Average
Developer Milestone S.r.l. has been making racing games for so long, it comes as no surprise how nicely Monster Energy Supercross turned out. From the detail in the dirt, to the details in the bikes, this is not only a great looking game, but a great racing game too.
It's safe to say that fans of supercross racing should have no hesitations buying Monster Energy Supercross. There was no corner cutting with licenses, characters or the amount of value included.
Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame is the focused and highly-energetic brother to MXGP, and is helped by the licensing of Monster Energy. The look and feel of the game is unmatched, and while the performance could use some tweaking, the game is just fun to dig grooves into the dirt. I’m not sure what could be done to improve what Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame brings to the table, but Milestone has their work cut out for them for such a strong first entry.
Monster Energy Supercross is a visually impressive and accurate reflection of what supercross racing is about. It caters for players looking for an arcade-ish game where they can just jump straight in and race, as well as for the supercross fan who is looking to indulge their inner supercross champion.
Monster Energy Supercross is a very deep experience to both those new to the genre and fans of Milestone's previous work. There is not only a lot of content but also the ability to create and share newly created content with the community which will help prolong the life of the title. It takes a while to get used to the controls if you have not played a similar game in the past (as it isn't your typical racer), but once you know what you're doing, it's such a blast to play solo and competitively online.
Now the patches have hit it is a solid little Supercross simulation game that many can play. There is scope for further improvements but you can definitely get your Supercross on with it.
In general, however, we can say that we are in front of an excellent title, full of content and really nice to play; the physics of the collisions, the pilots, the bikes and the details are treated to the maximum, the customization is always vast and even the editor of the circuits gives that extra touch to the game. In short, a gem that will certainly please lovers of cross-country cars!

A solid first entry in the series. If you're a Supercross fan then you'll easily get knee deep into the excellent track editor and have good fun hurtling around its muddy tracks.
Monster Energy Supercross is a good title, that can grant to all the supercross fans hours of fun. Threre are some technicals problems, and the carreer isn't brilliant, but the gameplay is truly solid.

Unnecessary padding in the career mode and a few presentation blemishes detract somewhat from what is otherwise a more than competent and content-rich supercross sim, which caters to fans of all skill levels.
Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Video Game is a well crafted and unique racing title that attempts to capture the unique elements of dirt bike racing. The game is fun and has a lot of detail in its gameplay elements as well as the riders, bikes, and tracks included. Unfortunately, loading lag times and other issues stain what would be otherwise a very solid racing experience.
Monster Energy Supercross is a solid driving experience and a good adaptation of Supercross in the videogame world. However, Milestone's work feels lazy and the game does not seem complete, so it makes the player want more.

Monster Energy Supercross is a step ahead in mastering Unreal Engine by Milestone. It is overall a fun, spectacular and intense motocross game. The sense of speed is great and the action, although more arcade than MXGP, is always tense and gripping. Unfortunately, its great potential is undermined by the lack of polish, AI balance and some poor design choices, which limit its sense of progression.

What there is to say about Monster Energy Supercross is that it is an improvement from Milestone on the MXGP series. It certainly can be gripping and it's more than challenging once you get the settings right. Racing through your own career is pretty fun to say the least. The only thing is that, like other Milestone titles, it has it's issues that could do with working through.
Milestone has a solid footing with Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame. If the team offers continual support that carries over to new titles, this series has the potential to be something special.
Monster Energy Supercross in one of very few solid Motor Racing games that has been developed in recent years, and I strongly suggest that you give it a try if you are a racing fan. Even with very inconsistent servers and poor audio design and music, the game still offers a lot in terms of gameplay and visuals, and with continued support from developers, it can become a great racing franchise.

Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame may not be quite as fulfilling as it was expected to be, but it is still a capable racer that has enough in the tank to provide at least a couple of hours enjoyment at a time.
Monster Energy Supercross demonstrates that Milestone can take even more advantage of the Unreal Engine 4 and that they are well on their way to realizing their potential. However, the studio continues to make historical mistakes presenting the same playable formula excessively supported in the Career mode without accompanying it of anything relevant.

When I first previewed Monster Energy Supercross many months ago, I thought it was a fun racing game with a lot of potential. I still think it's fun, but this first run at the license from Milestone doesn't come anywhere close to meeting its real potential.
A solid and dedicated start right out of the gate, Monster Energy Supercross struggles to maintain its momentum across the entire race as technical issues and a bland road to Supercross glory hamper its progress.
The game will be a special thing for lovers of motorcycle games and a great compensation for the absence of games and disappearing this category but will not satisfy everyone who is looking for a new experience will be not the best thing for them.

A serviceable motocross game, albeit if you only like racing alone. It's disappointing how much was cut from the Switch version, but despite all that was removed, this is in fact the only version you can take to an actual Supercross event.
Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame wants you in for the ride but forgets that getting basic fundamentals wrong can be the cause of frustration. The series has turned the bikes in the right direction, it now just needs to fix a few flat tyres to get it up to speed.
Monster Energy Supercross 2 is yet another poor release by Milestone that simply has nothing good to offer other than realistic motorcycle handling. As a motorcycles fan, you might enjoy this game, but as a gamer, there is not much here to enjoy.
Monster Energy AMA Supercross 2 FIM World Championship - The Official Videogame, to give it the full name on the box, is a step forward from the previous incarnation. It takes elements from other Milestone games such as the improved visuals and track deformation, adds a few unique features of its own and provides a perfectly acceptable dirt racing game experience. But, in a world where acceptable isn't quite good enough, I wish more developers dipped their toes into the bike racing arena to really push Milestone to another level. MEAS2FWCTOVG is solid but uninspiring.
Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame is a competent dirt bike game that will properly give you all the thrills of the real deal, in a fashion you can customize to your own liking. However, considering this game is priced as a full AAA experience, we can't but think that all the content from the remaining versions that got cut from the Switch retail release is not enough to justify this version's portable aspect. So buyers beware: you're picking up a brand new dirt bike with several key components missing, which is a somewhat troublesome trend on third-party Switch releases.
Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame is actually a surprisingly competent for what it sets out to do, and fairly accommodating next to something like NASCAR Heat 2, which generally just didn't care if you were hoping to get into the genre.
Overall, Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame is an enjoyable racing game packed within a fairly lacklustre wrapper, one that doesn't try hard enough to please anyone but the hardcore supercross fanbase.
What is Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame? Well, the answer is that this is a solid, challenging, and authentic example of the Supercross racing genre that fans will definitely enjoy on their PlayStation 4 systems. However, in saying that, at the same time it also feels like Milestone has sort of left this release in a rather unfulfilled form.
If word of mouth gets around and the online presence can build I think a few more people will be hopping on their bikes and trying to become the next Ryan Dungey (he is a good racer, Google told me so).
While possibly catering to fans of the sport in terms of content, the overly aggressive AI and unnaturally twitchy handling mean that Monster Energy Supercross just isn't that fun to play.
A lot of Monster Energy Supercross' issues on their own really aren't too bad, but when taken all at once, the game is disappointing. Many of the problems – like load times – are more quality of life issues than game problems, so if Milestone could tidy this stuff up then it'd go a long distance. But it's the inconsistent physics that are the real kicker, and detract from the generally acceptable presentation and decent selection of modes. It's better than nothing, and North American supercross fans will surely appreciate the fact that the title exists at all, but it could be so much better.
We are not facing a bad game, but the frustration is great when thinking about the potential of the title. Some bugs ruins the experience and the feelings are uneven. Monster Energy Supercross is not advisable for someone who wants to discover the discipline or get into motorcycle games. On the other hand, those who are fans have nothing else in alternative anyway, and could be satisfied.

Monster Energy Supercross is a buggy and not particularly fun game. Outside of its stadium design and functional controls, the game is a glitchy mess that feels somewhat unfinished.
Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 2 doesn't even have local multiplayer unless you have two systems and two copies of the game, which is one of the most ridiculous things I've seen of late! The polish, quality, and most of all fun, simply isn't here. At a whopping $59.99, this is an easy pass.
