Get ready for world-class dirt-bike racing action with Motocross Madness 2 for the PC. Developed by Phoenix, Arizona-based Rainbow Studios and published by Microsoft, the sequel to 1998's award winning Motocross Madness has built on the original game and added many new features and depth of gameplay.
Motocross Madness 2 features an upgraded physics engine that allows independent rider and biker motion, variable surface friction (slick ice, gravel, mud) and a range of bike handling and performance options. With over 40 detailed 3D racing environments and tracks (as well as the ability to build your own), as well as ambient vehicles, characters, locations and objects, the developers have designed the game to be an immersive experience.
Six racing events are also offered:
Super Cross. With the roar of the crowd behind you, you are free to grind your way through dozens of technical stadium tracks. You can power your way through Whoopdy-Whoops and a wide variety of stunts, such as the Big Kahuna, Barney, Cliff Hanger, Double Can-Can, Tail Grab and many more on you way to victory.
Nationals. Similar to Super Cross, except the Nationals are outdoor races run on extreme tracks. Windy twisting courses, tabletop jumps and radical elevation changes are all part of these challenging events.
Baja. Travel to remote outdoor environments and race your way through a series of way-points. You have complete control of where and how you navigate to victory.
Stunt Quarry. In this event you can grab some air in scalable open pits. Kick off body twisting stunts like the Cordoba, Superman Seat Grab and many more.
Tag. You're it! In this multi-player event you and your opponents fights to possess a ball for the longest time before being brought down. Bump off your opponents and become the rabbit!
Enduro. In this all new event you race in vast outdoor motocross environments such as an Arizona trailer park, Costa Rican jungle, Open Pit Mine a Farm and others. Each of these areas are populated with over 50,000 3D objects, ambient vehicles and sounds, hidden Easter Eggs and 'living' locations such as highways, airports and more to add to the experience and fun.
In the game's single-player Pro Circuit Career mode, you will vie for prize money and sponsorship dollars to enter future races and pay for bike repairs. You start out as a Rookie rider and work your way up through the ranks to the ultimate motocross challenge, the professional Supercross circuit. Motocross Madness 2 offers you dozens of tricked out motorcross bikes to choose from, including officially licensed bikes and gear from Yamaha, KTM, Honda, Fox and Answer.
Multi-player and community features allow for online gameplay on the MSN Gaming Zone. Form leagues, ladders, team and battle in tournaments in real-life competition for fame and fortune. An online scoring system allows your career to be tracked and scored as you battle to place in the prestigious Top 100 — gaining this rank allows access to a downloadable numberplate indicating your ranking in every online race!
An improved 3D track and terrain editor gives you the opportunity to build your own twisted tracks and courses for both single and multi-player events. As with the original game, these can be posted on the official website to be downloaded or played by others in the community. Bike and racer skins are also customizable to give the game a look and feel of your own choosing. ~ Tara Hernandez, All Game Guide
