I'm going over tonight to get a Sony Playstation. I was just wondering what everyones favorite MX Game is for it so I don't wast my money on something cheesy. You know I put DRN'rs opinions above everyone elses, especially in this category. So what's best, RC's Supercross, Mcgraths SX, etc..? Your help would be much appreciated. Thanks. :)

The ugly truth first... MX games on playstation2 are not very good compared to Motocross Madness 2 on the PC, it's hands-down superior. That being said, RC's game isn't bad.

Thanks Okie. MotoX Madness 1 runs great on my PII 350 with 128MB of memory. Problem is, which I am sure most feel this way, I don't like to go home and sit in front of the PC after being on one all day. Much rather be in front of the TV. I figure Playstation will at least allow me to do that interactivly and I can get a thumb workout.

Most video rental stores also have games you can rent. I'd suggesed you do that, then you can find what game you like best. I've played McGrath's, RC's, and Supercross Circuit from 989 it wins hands down. I also have MM2 and while it is cool I still think Supercross Circuit is better, might be because of the controlers and the screen size (19" monitor vs. 27" TV) plus being able to lounge on the couch don't hurt either.

Patman, does Supercross Circuit have pretty ergonomic controls? Like in Motocross madness, I can't stay on the MX track to save my life? The only enjoyable thing is the dunes.

I also have that problem with MM2 but on S-C it's VERY intutive and much more realistic (not completly mind you) than any of the others I have played.

Its funny...

You know, its funny, I had the beta of Motocross Madness 1 and it was the closest thing to real in any game as far as physics and controls(MCM2 definitely looks the best) it had a manual transmission, separate front and rear brakes, and both gas and brake gyros were there. Don't know why it was taken out when the game was released, but it sure was fun, I think the taking out the manual/auto transimission option was the big downer for me, I liked the added ability to switch gears.... :think

RC MX2002

I have played last years PS1's games and by far super cross circuit was the best....This year is different though. I received a new sony PS2 this xmas, and waited till july for RC MX2002... I have spent the past 6 months playing Motocross Madness 2 on my buddys NT system of gaming, and it is great...But MX2002, in my opinion just seems a tad more realistic and the actual controls are great, clutching - L1, brake slides R1, decompress suspension before jumps L2 R2, and brake and gas, rumble, really cool. the instant replays are great and for the most part, the rest is very good and there are some awesome freestyle events to try, the bus jump is pretty cool too.... the only other game for PS2 will be Mcgrath racing and EA sports supercross in november. the past EA supercross games for PS1 blew...I guess time will tell.

MCM2 has gas and brake gyros but no manual shifter. The other advantage it has over most of the others is the ability to play online against real people. And you can always find games to join.

Motorcycle racing is always better if you can talk smack after you win and make excuses when you lose...:p

I agree Supercross Circuit!!

VERY realistic and detailed, tracks are pretty neat, and easy to control riders on the track. I LOVE that game! (I haven't played MM2, though)

On Playstation 1 the best MX game I've played was Supercross Circuit, but on Playstation 2 the best IMO is MX 2002 with Ricky Carmiceal, which is better than SX circuit. That game is awesome. I may buy a PS2 just for that game. I'd shy away from most of the Mcgrath games, the ones I've palyed haven't been very good.

RCMX2002 is okay. Good physics model but not enough tracks and too much FMX. I wish someone would make a MX version of GT3(which is the best PS2 game imho).
