    It remind me of the good time I spend on the 2 previous games of the series on PC.
    I really hope there is multiplayer splitscreen : Console racing without split screen is a fatal fault for me. But I can not find any information about split screen anywhere…
    Not being able to play with peoples living with you or your friend coming at home is a massive letdown.

    I hope that we can see a new Midtown madness soon too.

      Midtown Madness would be wonderful with the multiplayer component from the Xbox original title!

    • ungeheier

      I think I was one of the first people to ‘game with fame’ on the Xbox with Midtown Madness. What a great game! <3

    • xPutNameHerex

      According to the “Overview” on the marketplace link, it has 2 player offline versus, and 2 player offline Co-op. Online Co-op is also 2 player, and Online Versus is 2-8 players.

    • Getsuga_Tensho

      The overview of the page for the game says it supports local multiplayer up to 2 players.

    • Z4M0

      Liked the demo, I’ll pick it as soon as I’ll rehab from terraria.

  • Thânia Santos

    this game need a patch!!!
    first time I played, the game hanged at a victory screen.
    I had to switch off my Xbox .
    and now, each time I try to run the game, it does not even start, and I am stuck with a lack screen!
    I have to switch off Xbox each time and I can not play it anymore!

    • Thânia Santos

      Delete and re-download the game fixed it.
      I wonder what happened (?!)

      • Nick Peck

        I was just going to say try and do what you did. That usually fixes problems like that. Who knows, maybe something messed up during your download or something :( It happens. Glad it’s working for you.

    The game is fun as hell, I love these sort games were you get to play as your avatar

  • Thânia Santos

    good to know that, thanks for the info.
    hope it goes up to 4 players.

  • Angry Consumer

    This game is really fun

    The game must be glitched, it simply does not start, it freezes on the black screen (when you start it). I tried redownloading it, signing out of Xbox LIVE, nothing helped. How could this pass certification?

    • DemolitionMan

      works fine for me, maybe you need to try more methods, like clearing your system cache, etc.?

      • Gábor Tóth

        I tried that and everything the developers have advised (yes I contacted them via email) and it’s still totally random if the game freezes or not. They are working on a fix. There’s also a thread about it on xbox.com.

        • http://twitter.com/IrisWow1 Iris Wow

          Yes, it freezes with black screen here also. The problem is this game uses custom resolution and tries to switch your monitor’s resolution on starting and very many computer monitors (HDMI), e.g., ViewSonic 1680×1050 models, do not “accept” the way this is handled, so the console freezes. You won’t be able to solve the issue unless either:
          1. You buy a new monitor for the Xbox; or
          2. Microsoft issues an update to avoid this switching and learn from the mistake so that it is not repeated in future titles.

    • ColinZeal

      Same for me, i´ve downloaded it twice for nothing. same problems for me. This on a Slim 250GB.

  • Whetzel

    Can you play it WITHOUT using those stupid avatars?

    • DemolitionMan

      nope, and why is it a bad thing?

      • Whetzel

        That really stinks.

        For one, I have always hated the idea of having avatars for my gamer profile, let alone having them invade my games (just a little bit too, childish, for the lack of a better word, for me). And secondly, being into motocross/supercross, I just want a real looking rider on the bike. The avatars look way too fake and just really don’t fit, IMO.

        I played the original Motocross Madness and I was really hoping for a ‘true to the original’ experience, with maybe some updated graphics. That’s all. Nothing more, nothing less.

        • DemolitionMan

          you make good points, i thought it was gonna be the complete opposite.

          but yeah, i know what you mean, the original game is INCREDIBLE!!

    fun game !!!

  • http://twitter.com/catbhoy catbhoy

    this demo crashes my system out, not an uncommon problem, poor effort.

  • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

    Game needs a patch black screens on loading then crashes and also 2achievements are glitched like on fire pro wrestling

  • GMAN73

    Another example of lazy devs releasing a bugged game, first Giani Sisters now this.

  • Socal71

    This is definitely a fun game, much better than I expected it to be. Lots of great features. Looking forward to more tracks to race on. My only real complaint is the default camera angle. Most of the time it’s not a problem, but there are times when it follows below and directly behind the bike. You can see anything in front of you and it typically causes a wreck. It would be nice to see that adjusted. Otherwise it’s def worth 800pts.

  • L4lefty

    Downloaded twice, just getting a blackscreen and having to restart xbox. Sorry, life’s too short. I’ll go spend my points on something that works (for everyone).

    • GMAN73

      Call CS and get a refund, you have bought a product that’s not fit for purpose.

      • L4lefty

        Thanks GMAN73, thankfully I downloaded the demo so I’m not out of pocket. Pretty shabby, glad I didn’t waste points on this badly coded mess. How did it get through testing? Total joke.
