STAFF REVIEW of MX 2002 Featuring Ricky Carmichael (Xbox)

MX 2002 Featuring Ricky Carmichael Box art My overall appeal of the game was that it was a pretty good game, but, to my disappointment, it's only a rental, my fellow XBoxAddict buddies. Unless you are an absolute die-hard (and I truly mean die hard) motorcross fan, then this game is not worth your hard earned 50 bones...just rent it.

If you really enjoyed Excitebike 64 on the N64, you will be very disappointed about MX, unfortunately.


The Gameplay was pretty easy to master. I probably did every trick in the book after one hour of playing. This is a very negative thing considering that I prefer games that take a long time to Master. A few things I didn't like is how your rider is able to land sideways, backwards, or even after you are coming off a huge !&%$@#* jump and all of the sudden, you slam into a wall but are able to stay on your bike but at a complete stand still. The realism is not quite there.

Also, when your rider is on the normal racing tracks, he seems to float and you don't get the realism of what riding on racing tracks feels like. I think they could have polished both of these up much much more.

Also, there was a minimal power ban...the developers really messed this one up...it's only good for launching off jumps right before you fly through the air...it needs to be used more often, that is, if you could during racing and catching up if you are behind.


Visually, the graphics are great! I actually was very impressed with the graphics, especially the backgrounds and tracks. This was done quite tastefully. However, my only quom on this is that I really wished they touched up the bikes a little better...they never got scuffed and didn't really appear to be drawn very well. I give the background and racing track graphics a 4.5 and the bikes and 2.5, therefore, a 3.5 average overall.


Great soundtrack and it keeps you interested in racing like the crazy rider you are. The bikes' engines could have sounded a little better...a little muffled for my taste. They could have polished this up much more.


Suggestions:
Touch up everything. Realism is what people are looking for with XBox games. I believe all of the information above that I mentioned should provide a great starting point.


Overall: 7.0 / 10
Gameplay: 5.0 / 10
Visuals: 7.0 / 10
Sound: 6.0 / 10
