MX Unleashed
4 Star Review  GameZone - Mar 5, 2004

Rainbow Studios. You know and love 'em from their stellar racing series: Splashdown and ATV Offroad Fury. Near-perfect controls, excellent level design, good music, and pretty graphics are just a few of the wonderful things you can say about those games. When THQ acquired Rainbow Studios, it was time to say goodbye to Sony and the ATV Offroad series (for now at least). Just because one off-road series has ended, however, does not mean that the developer cannot create a sequel in spirit. And so they did with MX Unleashed. If you've played either of the mentioned games then you know what to expect from Rainbow Studios' latest offering.

4 Star Review  GameSpy - Feb 29, 2004

In the world of racing games, few companies have the resume of Rainbow Studios. Both the Splashdown and ATV Offroad Fury series are among my favorites. The company strives for ultimate realism, while still ensuring that the gamer has fun and can do the things he or she wants to with the vehicles and environments provided. Before either of those franchises, however, Rainbow developed the acclaimed Motocross Madness games for PC. In MX Unleashed, Rainbow returns to its roots while keeping up with the standards of today.

4.5 Star Review  about.com - Feb 29, 2004

If you like Rainbow Studios other games such as Splashdown, Motocross Madness, and ATV Offroad Fury, you'll love MX Unleashed. Everything just feels right, and the attention to detail in the handling and physics of the bikes is simiply amazing. There are a ton of race types and there are even other vehicles such as a monster truck, dune buggy, and an airplane. MX Unleashed is by far the best MX game out there, so I highly recommend checking it out.

4.5 Star Review  IGN.com - Feb 19, 2004

Back in late 2001, THQ announced that it had acquired Rainbow Studios, creators of some of the best extreme racing games this side of MXC's opening spurt. You may recognize such franchises as ATV Offroad Fury, Splashdown or Motocross Madness. While THQ was having decent success with its MX Supercross games, it was looking for a fresh start to its motocross lineup with Rainbow Studios.

Excellent Motocross game with added features
4 Star Review   By member sarma81 - Oct 17, 2006   

Strengths: Career racing mode and freestyle mode; realistic and responsive controls; Graphically pleasing; Great use of surround sound

Weakness: A bit difficult to master controls at first; Lack of online play

MX Unleashed is the third entry is the Motocross series by THQ. This game builds upon the success of its predecessors and even adds a few nice touches. The game includes two main gameplay modes. The first one is a career racing mode where you earn money to purchase upgrades and unlock tracks. The other is a freestyle mode which consists of multiple mini-objectives. The controls in the game are very responsive and therefore satisfying. While it may take a while to get used to the sensitivity of the controls, you will soon realize that this is a good thing. Instead of controlling the bike with one-button as in the previous games, you are actually shifting the rider's weight on the bike which will impact how the bike will go airborne. There are also three trick buttons which you can use in combination to accumulate combos. The visuals and sound are solid and very realistic. The only thing lacking is an online multiplayer mode. This would've put the game over the top. Nevertheless, it's a must have for fans of Motocross or racing games in general.

Fun Game
4 Star Review   By member thebob101 - Jun 15, 2006   

Strengths: Controls, game play

Weakness: Soundtrack

MX Unleashed is a blast to play. The controls take no time to learn and the ability to customize your character is awesome. The soundtrack gets repetitive, but that is probably the worst part of the game. Overall, I would definitely recommend this game to any motocross fan.

4 Star Review   By member warlion - May 29, 2006   

Strengths: great variety and vehicles

MX Unleashed is one of the many motocross games available for the X box. If you have played any of these motorcycle stunt games, then you'll be very familiar with this one, especially if you played MX Super fly. I like this game more than the previous ones I've played because it is more realistic and detailed and gives you more options. You have two choices in this game: Racing, where there is classic motocross competition where you run laps inboth indoor and outdoor tracks. There is a total of 46 tracks that you can race on and unlock. The other type of game is the Freestyle mode where you have to fulfill multiple objectives, like taking off and landing on certain areas where you are rewarded points for accuracy. There are also challenges and stunts that you have to perform within a certain time limit, similar to the Tony Hawk skateboards series. There's also a Machine race, where you compete and race against other non-motorcycle vehicles, such as monster trucks and dune buggies and even against flying machines like helicopters and biplanes. Once you beat them in the race, you're then able to unlock these vehicles and the use them for free ride mode.. This provides great variety to the game play because you're not just limited to utilizing only a dirt bike . Controls are excellent and responds extremely well to the button presses, where your rider can lean forward sideways or backwards in order to shift your weight and make the Bike perform certain tricks. This game also has excellent background music that plays fast and furious, just like the game play. I highly recommend buying this game.

5 Star Review   By member songsmith99 - Sep 28, 2004   

Strengths: Easy controls and no foul language. many fun things in freestyle not found in any other games I have played. Other vehicles than dirtbikes. Fun two-palyer. Very good graphics.

Weakness: The screen is a little hard to adjust. Only two-player (not four). minor problems with scenary and buildings.

Very fun game. Good for all ages. Would recommend to buy up to 35 dollars. Good gift to give and smart game to buy. if you are willing to play with only one friend don't hesitate to buy. if you're looking for a game that you can have a lot of people over and play all at once you might want to try something else. Really a 4.5 out of 5.0 because of minor problems with screen adjustment which are easily fixed but can get a little annoying after a while.

Strengths: Great graphics and deep gameplay.

This game has incredible graphics, especially on a nice TV with 1080i. The dirt bikes are a blast to ride around and there are all different kinds of competitions. Recommended.
