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 360’s answer to Motorstorm’s dominance of the PS3. Instead, it looks barely dissimilar to the last MX vs ATV on the original Xbox, 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.
