MX vs ATV Alive homemade videos

MX vs ATV Alive may not be the most highly-anticipated title coming out in May, but since we got a copy of the game with THQ, we gave it a try. Not everything is perfect, far from it, and there are clearly flaws in the way it is designed (no careeer mode, no single player championship, few tracks - especially when you start the game and have to wait a few hours to unlock new ones). However, the gameplay turns out to be pretty interesting and the graphics are more than ok for a $40 title. Add to that the local and online multiplayer features, and you have a pretty decent title in the end. It is even probably the best choice in the genre, mainly because it is a lot more realistic than the likes of Pure and Nail'd. We have prepared a big bunch of videos so you can see what to expect, so enjoy!

Looks improved from the last title. They kept the nice reflex controls and deformable terrain (Reflex has the best deformable terrain of any game I've played), and it looks like they ditched the sprite based foliage and added more post processing and weather effects.
I wonder if the weather dynamically affects the track.

They really needed to work on the player to player collision, as it would be way to easy to get knocked off when you're on a bike or quad in the last game.
Oh, and the wacky performance on the PC version...

I might pick this up; it's a good price :)

edit
too bad about the SP campaign :( That's another drawback from the past titles that, it looks like, they don't much care about.

I've always managed to have fun with the games though, so no biggie.

I don't see a lot a of improvement. I played the first on 360 and it was fun(I got 1000 GS on that game), but had a lot of problems.
They haven't fixed the stiff animations and the collision system. Yes you don't fall in mid-air like last time but you still have that annoying sudden change of direction when you hit something while turning. The gameplay is still buggy as hell. Check out the dev playing a race and see the collisions in mid-air.

Also, the graphics have little improvement. That dune video in freeride looks pretty cool, but the motocross tracks look like the old game.

    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (0 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (2 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)
