While there are some inconsistencies in MESX 2, Milestone has made improvements in almost every area of the title. The gameplay outshines everything else here, and that is never a bad thing. Milestone is one of the most consistent developers in the industry, and the improvements made to MESX 2 do nothing but help solidify that belief in my mind. MESX 2 is a title that delivers both as a single and multiplayer experience, and is deep enough to warrant a long, long run in your rotation. Whether you are new to the series or a veteran of Milestone offerings, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not adding MESX 2 to your library.

Monster Energy Supercross 2 is a fast-paced dirt bike racing game that provides a tough yet enjoyable challenge. The controls take some getting used to, but after you get time in with the game, you'll be racing like a pro. The graphics and soundtrack keep the blood pumping and the eyes pleased.

Monster Energy Supercross 2 is yet another solid racing game developed by Milestone, that improves lots of features that didn't convince in the original game. The true issue with this game could be the lack of fans of the AMA Supercross championship outside the United States, but if you love this kind of sport you should definitely give it a try!

Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame 2 is pure spectacle, a rhythm game disguised as a racing videogame. The only flaw is a career really not that exciting with a poor sense of progression.

Is it a fun racing experience? Absolutely. Are there a bevvy of options to choose from? Yes! Maybe I set my expectations a bit too high or wished that there would be something new and exciting to set Monster Energy 2 apart. Nevertheless, it is still the definitive supercross racing experience on consoles. Anyone still helmets-deep into Monster Supercross 1 might feel content holding off on a day one purchase, everyone else should have no hesitations stepping into the arena.

“Go with the flow” could be the motto of Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 2, a superb simulation of the AMA Supercross Championships (250SX and 450SX). Great race physics and graphics, lots of official contents and customizations, but unpolished general presentation and hideous loading times, just like in the previous chapter.

Just like its predecessor, Monster Energy Supercross 2 is a powerful concentrate of adrenaline that will not fail to amuse all the fans of the supercross discipline. There's a lot of customization e some new addition, like the new Compound mode, but we also found some technichal imperfections and a disappointing Career mode.

Monster Energy Supercross 2 is quite possibly the best Supercross game that's out right now. The stellar, true to feel motorcycle racing, and hard charging soundtrack keeps the adrenaline high. Some problems existed with sound anomalies and seemingly inconsistent landing dynamics, but the solid game play and career mode will keep players coming back. Multiplayer modes are very simplistic, but custom games and creating your own track will add additional replay ability for major Supercross fans.

Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Video Game is in the middle of the pack of Milestone S.r.l games. It's not fun or amazing or even disappointing. It might actually be unique for players who aren't into this genre though technical issues, lack of variety and risk stops this from being an incredible game

In the end, Monster Energy Supercross 2 will intrigue veterans of the series with its deeper career mode, rhythm gameplay, and authentic AMA Motocross Championship presentation. Meanwhile, casual racing fans can hop in and have a lot of fun with the easy to learn controls and compound mode, however bugs and long load times will frustrate everyone.

Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 2 is a vast improvement in many ways upon the first game. The inclusion of a track editor, the reinstatement of online multiplayer and the sheer level of authenticity on offer will impress both longtime supercross fans and casuals looking to spray mud on two wheels. Visually, it's a noticeable step up and while it does occasionally chug, the frame rate holds fast most of the time. It's just a shame those monstrously long loading times and a needlessly grindy unlock system takes away some of its shine.

Monster Energy Supercross 2 is a good sequel. It greatly enhances the career mode and gives it a lot more dynamism. Driving sensations are also on a good path with better feelings and good technicality, despite an arcade side revealed by some collisions issues. Pretty, fun, and easy to access despite greater depth, Milestone's production has been able to capitalize positively on bases that had good potential. It still has to tweak his multiplayer mode to keep the distance. See you in 2020 for a must-have ?

Overall I think Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 2 is something that has been made for the enthusiasts and players who are already fans of the sport. Despite the smooth slick presentation, I’m not sure many new converts will be won over to the sport, as its not really a game you can just pick up and play.

As someone who got to go see an actual supercross race, the game just didn’t grab me like the real thing did, but this is a product that’s 100% not made for me. Honestly, you probably already knew whether or not you were going to love this game before you even read this review.

Monster Energy Supercross 2 is a mostly fluid and enjoyable two-wheeler experience, which hasn't been reinvented, but has been polished just enough to be a decent follow-up. The standard cynicism of incessant iterative cycles still applies here, because if Milestone gave themselves two years for this follow-up, it would be drastically better, rather than the usual half-step. However, at least the studio's commitment to the Unreal Engine 4, and their policy of providing an accessible driving experiences for all skill-levels, ensures Monster Energy Supercross 2 is still fun and engrossing for fans of Supercross, as well as those of the genre at large. Improvements to air-control reduces some occasional handling frustration, but doesn't erase it. Likewise, whilst throttle and front/rear brake application appears to me a little more tactile, the general handling and physics still leave a little to be desired. Good acrobatic fun, but with ample room for improvement.

If it were a game made 10 years ago, it would have been adequate, but it feels so antiquated compared to the racing games of today that it just doesn’t offer as much value.

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 2 gives you everything you would want from an official Motorcross game, whether you will get the most out of it though really depends if you are a mad fan of the sport. Along with the gameplay shortcomings mentioned earlier, the rawk soundtrack is terrible and gets way too repetitive way too soon. The visuals aren’t great either, but then I guess how pretty do you need muddy stadiums to be?

That it dares to be the price of a AAA title is insulting enough, but to be so brazen as to drag down an honest attempt at Supercross simulation means that this just isn't worth even a minute of your time.
