You can get it here, no waiting (or rather, there a couple of servers not full yet). At 3DGamers, I had 45 minute wait to download.

Never played the Xbox or PS2 versions, but it got fairly good reviews.

Motocross Madness was one of my favorite games, I used to just like riding around on the upper rim of the stunt levels and enjoyed making my guy fling off his bike.

I really liked Motocross Madness 1 & 2 and this game is pretty much like 1 & 2. It also looks about the same. So, the graphics are a little disappointing but the demo is still fun.

Its about damn time! I've got to try this out.


Update: The game plays so so...but I think the Madness games had a better feel. The graphics do suck pretty bad, and the sound cuts in and out a lot for me. Overall, I'm underwhelmed, but YMMV.

Yea the graphics are pretty sucky, I thought that Motocross Madness 1 and 2 were pretty amazing for their time, it sucks to see basically no progress :(

As a real MX rider myself I can tell you that MTX Mototrax sucks and the only worth playing MX games where always produced by Rainbow Studios. What makes MX vs ATV Unleashed so special over the rest? It's PHYSICS! Anyway, don't bother with the demo, it sucks. As a oldtime hardcore fan of the MCM series and playing their first two ATV games on the PS2, the PC demo just about turned me off on buying the full game - it's that bad. The demo doesn't have the pro physics of the full game or a technical track to show off the physics and give you a good feel of how the full game plays and handles.

Now the graphics in the full game aren't that bad (see my screenshots below), certainly not cutting edge for the PC like F.E.A.R. or Halflife2 or what you would be used to with a Rainbow Studios PC release, but good enough. The reason for this is that the game's developers decided to stop making PC games after MCM2 and this is a direct port of the console game with a newly added track editor so that's why that graphics aren't cutting edge (but not too bad either!)

Once you get on the full game and using the pro physics, pan the camera around to the side and go start hitting some bumps or whoops and watch how detailed the rider and bike work and react over the terrain! The rider and vehicle/suspension physics is polished to the max!

Anyways, if you guys want to see a possible full PC comeback from these guys with the possibility of the cutting edge graphics of their time like it was when MCM1&2 where released, you better go out and buy this game now and support it!

If you guys remember the MCM Central site, they've started up a new one where user tracks and stuff will be uploaded and of course the forum. http://www.mxvsatvcentral.com/

And now... some screenshots I took from the full game...

I am gonna pick it up. I was a HUGE MCM2 fan, and yes I remember the MCM site, I used to visit there daily.

I am in 100% support of future MCM2 games, so I will pick this up. The graphics are a little dissapointing, but it was still good fun.

I'd have to agree with you - I bought MX vs ATV and personally I think it sucks. I LOVE MTX Mototrax though.

Your screenshots look good but when racing the PC those guys are all over the place. The physics maybe good but I wasn't impressed with the AI at all.
Might as well be racing myself lol.

I dunno, I tried the MTX Mototrax demo and I didn't like it too much... very little physics, and no ragdolls when you crash :(

i just picked it up today, nuttn special as far as I'm concerned, graphics are crap compared to MTX. Also using a gamepad is pretty tough as the bikes turn WAY too fast, lol

Put in the cheat code "TOOLAZY" to unlock everything including the pro physics and then put the difficulty to 125% along with selecting pro physics and go race some supercross and tell us how you fair against the AI. :)

Heh, I just got back from getting this game. Just tried one race so far but I like it. I really liked MCM 1 & 2 and this is right in line with that.
