You’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’s no reason why a game with the pedigree of MX shouldn’t be the prime competition for Motorstorm’s dominant presence on the PS3. Instead, it looks barely dissimilar to the last-gen MX vs ATV; and while it’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’s premier racer.
