Motocross Madness from Microsoft can be purchased on the Xbox Live Arcade for around $10. Is it worth it? Well, maybe. This is not the old school Motocross Madness from Rainbow Studios, but a completely different game. This is an avatar Xbox game which means you can play the game using your pre-existing avatars that have been created on your Xbox. Avatars are fun because with the famestar feature you can collect points and make your avatar a superstar.
You can choose a variety of bikes from the garage, but you have to earn enough credits to get the cooler motorcycles. You can also equip your avatar with your choice of riding gear, which is fun. They make it a little goofy. For instance, you can choose a football helmet or a cowboy hat instead of a traditional dirt bike helmet. My favorite has to be the hazmat mask instead of a helmet!
Because of the general goofiness, this game will appeal to the masses, but probably is not going to be a hit amongst the motocross community because it is far from a realistic simulation of motocross racing. In addition to the unrealistic attire, the jumps and boosts you can achieve are physically impossible. On the other hand, that makes it fun as more of a fantasy type game which will make it a great one for many people.
