MXGP Pro Reviews
MXGP PRO is a fun Motocross racing sim with deep levels of customisation but is let down by some odd physics, a steep learning curve and it's similarity to the previous entry into the MXGP series: MXGP 3. If you are a diehard Motocross fan, this game is for you, but for the casual gamer, MXGP PRO probably won't be dynamic enough to hold your attention for long.
MXGP Pro looks nice and has better tutorials and handling than its predecessors, but its consistent glitches and slow load times keep it from being anything more than “alright”.
This is Milestone's best MXGP title to date, improving the graphics, improving the physics, the handling, and the realism, all whilst keeping the title accessible to players of all levels.
MXGP Pro with Unreal engine 4 improving its physics and graphics. But gameplay offers nothing new and it is boring.

The Italian studio Milestone should be proud of the game they've made. MXGP PRO is an enjoyable and well-made title for both beginners and veterans. Must play for motosport fans.

Having played Supercross, there was a major sense of deja vu with this game. To be honest, once I was racing it was impossible to tell which game I was playing. No doubt, zealots of these games would know instantly by location, driver, and bikes. For me, it was more of the same and so my initial excitement level was much lower when I started racing with MXGP Pro.
Forgettable, drab and middling to the extreme, MXGP Pro is an unfinished two wheel disaster.
All of Milestone's racers impress and disappoint in the same ways, and that hasn't changed here. MXGP succeeds in catering for both a casual audience and the hardcore fans, but neither will feel particularly satisfied with their serving. That's especially true in the case of MXGP Pro, because the 'Pro' subtitle was bound to raise expectation levels. While minor enhancements are always welcome, it's far too much of an incremental process across iterations here, making it difficult to recommend to anyone who bought MXGP3. The assumed time constraints and the developer's 'one size fits all' approach to generating improvements (where only additions that can be diffused across all its franchises seem to be encouraged) is now a significant source of frustration. While MXGP Pro is mostly an attractive, enjoyable experience, that represents the sport quite well, even avid fans should ponder long and hard over its longstanding flaws before indulging.
MXGP Pro is the best of Milestone's Motocross series of games, that much is certain. It doesn't differ too much from their previous Supercross title, which is a negative, but certainly offers their best outing on two wheels so far.
But that feeling only lasts until you're accelerating out of the final corner like you've done sixty times without issue in this event and your bike decides for no reason at all to rear up like freakin' Seabiscuit, throwing you to the ground an inch from the finishing line. At that point, the promising feeling drips away, and you start to think that given this is the 15th racing game Milestone has released on PS4 in four years, we could be in for a real treat when they slow down and actually finish one.
Milestone could have offered the best motorcycle racing game ever with the MXGP Pro, but despite the dramatic improvements in graphics and gameplay, the game's lack of balance in difficulty, few content make it lie in the middle as one of the games. The experience is good, but not the best. In my opinion, the studio needs a rest period to rearrange its papers and focus on one or two titles a year to give them a better experience, rather than offering more than one medium-level titles.

Saying that Milestone need to take a step back with its dirt bike games and rework everything is becoming as tired a statement as saying Telltale needs to use a new engine. But it remains true yet again with MXGP Pro. A very slight improvement over MXGP 3, but a noticeable step back from Monster Energy Supercross, MXGP Pro is largely a spectacular disaster. It gets a couple things right, and offers a new slate of tracks to race on, but you'll be too busy slamming your head into a wall to really notice.
MXGP Pro will provide plenty of content for those interested. The game modes and customisation unlocks will keep you playing for a good amount of time
The new Pro Physics and the Compound do not seem to justify a new outdated MXGP game.

MXGP Pro is an enjoyable dirt bike racing game that is a good step forward. It can serve as a solid stepping stone for the developer if they can keep the gameplay quality intact but focus on improving and adding new content that complements it.
MXGP does take some time to get used to and the poorly designed UI doesn't help, but once you get going, it is a really solid Motocross experience that might be worth checking out.
MXGP PRO is the best version of MXGP yet, but there’s still something dry about the overall experience. Perhaps there’s no avoiding this, but it could stand to have some personality injected into it. MXGP PRO is an incredibly competent and technical racing game that could do so much more, but doesn’t. Hopefully future entries will finally see some more energy and enthusiasm, but it’s not bad having a game that looks and plays as well as it does.
MXGP Pro is an all-around improvement of MXGP3, but lacks of mode and contents to be really different from its previous chapter. Physics is better and the Extreme Career mode is something brilliant, but the physics bugs in collision can make it impossible to sustain.

Maybe next year Milestone will revitalise its career mode just as much has it done the visuals and core game mechanics this year. But until then, simply having the best playing MXGP game will have to do.
This is by far and away the best MXGP game to date, and the result of developer Milestone finally getting to grips with the Unreal Engine — despite the recently disappointing MotoGP 18. MXGP Pro still lacks technical polish and misses the magical 'wow' moments that great racing games feature, but this is now a great platform that they can build upon for the future. The difficulty curve will not be for everyone, but MXGP Pro is all the better for it.
