I hope they're dipping their toes in the water to prepare the market for a proper Motocross Madness. Or Monster Truck Madness. Hell, Midtown Madness. Just get more madness out there.

Not like this... not like this. If it plays well, i'm in though. LOVED the original.

Can I drive off the boundary of the track and get launched 100 miles into the air? If not then this fails miserably.

I loved Motocross Madness back in the day - hopefully it plays more akin to that than just an avatar party game.

99% of my play time in Motocross Madness was spent doing just that. Didn't that game also have weird proto-ragdoll physics?

Hell yes to driving on the scaffolding around the pyramid. I'll keep an eye on this and be cautiously optimistic. No reason why it HAS to be easy-mode just because it uses avatars.

If they keep the same controls, this should be a great laugh. I don't mind the avatar stuff, since it was the bike handling that made it fun. Hopefully they have loads of MP stuff too.

I thought this was a game about the movie...

Or better yet... a game about the show =D.

Or a game about the second show!

Too many Avatars!

Hope this is by the same guys who just put out JoyRide Turbo on XBLA, that game is awesome.

Loved Motorcross Madness, even tho is just ride and ride till I got to the edge of world steep cliffs and try to get up them.

The MX Madness games were amazing. Truly one of my favourite '90s PC games. I spent hours and hours just messing around on the stunt quarries, seeing what I could come up with and seeing what was possible. The freedom and potential to create your own lines, gaps and transfers was wonderful.

I really hope Microsoft realize this and don't stray too far from the originals.

Have you tried MX vs ATV Alive?

Back in the day i was part of the Motocross Madness 1/2 track making and rider skins community. Truly one of my favorite games of all time, and is the reason i bought a new PC. lol Its so sad to see it come to this. I just hope its still a physics based, free movement motocross game, and not a 2D racer like Trials and Joe danger. To early to tell from just two screens.

"I wonder if this will be different enough from Trials to warrant a purchase.

I love Motorcross games."


If it's a true "Motocross Madness" game, it won't be anything even remotely like Trials. At all. Like it won't be a 2.5D sidescrolling affair. Completely different.
