You%26rsquo;ll probably often hear MX compared to the PS3 launch game Motorstorm, with both offering a similarly comprehensive vehicle set and both flinging mud about the place like a pig in the poo pond. But where Motorstorm is among the most beautiful racers ever made, MX is as plain as a bowling shoe and - because of that, we fear - likely to get a bit of a thrashing sales-wise on store shelves.
There%26rsquo;s no reason why a game with the pedigree of MX shouldn%26rsquo;t be the 360%26rsquo;s answer to Motorstorm%26rsquo;s dominance of the PS3. Instead, it looks barely dissimilar to the last MX vs ATV on the original Xbox, and while it%26rsquo;s true the game is throwing around impressive physics and incidental effects, a straight screenshot makes it look like a hatchet-faced version of the PS3%26rsquo;s premier racer.
