MX vs. ATV Reflex is the third installment in the MX vs. ATV series of the off-road racing games.


The player can compete in a motocross race. There are several types of vehicles available, from the mountain motorcycles to all-terrain quadricycles and buggies. The game features multiple modes and "events", including Omnicross, Champion Sports Track, Free Ride, Freestyle, and Supercross. There's also the Motorcareer mode that takes the player through most of the events mentioned above. The roster of tracks includes environments like forests, hills, and deserts, with terrains like mud, sand, or snow.

Differences from the previous games

MX vs. ATV Reflex introduced a new control system designed specifically to improve jumps and stunt tricks. The game uses dual stick wielding, where one stick controls the vehicle itself and the other controls the driver. Driving the bike requires to perfectly balance the rider's weight to avoid the fall.

Another new feature of the third game is its destructible terrain. While passing on a track, the vehicles will spill the ground and leave deep ruts. This makes every track's relief dynamic and unpredictable. New bumps and holes can appear at every lap.


The game has many multiplayer options. Those include split-screen, local, and online modes, the latter allows up to 12 players to participate. The results of online races are recorded to keep track of each player’s experience and allow the players to level up.

Best MX game on the market although it is very old:D! The best thing is to download custom maps

Good little game of motorcycle, a catch in hand a little special at the beginning but it is done very quickly. In multi, the mini-games are pretty good and original. But like all racing games, it's still very fast repetitious

The Game is a lot of Fun, a Purchase is definitely worth it. But I recommend you play the Game with a Controller. The Control with Keyboard is also Quite fine, but this is one of the Games that should be played with Controllers.

Personally, I like the AI very much. The Opponents make just as stupid and silly mistakes as you do in such Games and that is worth a * Laugh * from time to time, above all it is fair. For Players who hate a rubber band AI and also want to hour up with a Quad, this Game is highly recommended for small Money.

even in 2017, best game in MX/SX, very reactive, very varied, maneuverability of the bike pleasant, very realistic, very technical fast the next, an innovation would be able to create its personal circuits (already existing on another game of MX but the PR oblem was the I. A. who could not adapt to the personal path good continuation to THQ who well mastered this category of MX a real MX/SX enthusiast

After initial Scattering Difficulties, the Game is now making fun powerful. The with the Tricks in the Air I still net pretty out aba I hope yet. Especially isses nice that you can only drive with Motorcycles, but also with ATV or even Buggies and so Ne Art Raid Vehicles. (Only after they have been unlocked, of course). What I haven't found out yet is how to configure a Controller or my Gamepad never works. I can definitely recommend the Game, especially for Motorcycle or Off-road Fans fans.

The Game itself is quite good, gets right Buck! However, there are massive performance issues! Think it's because the Game doesn't make do with Multi-core CPUs! Going Well alone, = > 60FPS, but it's in career mode or online with several Leuten/opponents, the Frame rate is at a constant 15-18 Frames! ....... Very bad.... What a pity.... Empholene CPU: Athlon 64 3800 + 2.4Ghz ... My CPU 1090t ... Maybe things are going better with a core Shutdown, but that's too much Effort for me! There are also Mods or FPS fixes on The net, but they have no Effect via Steam, as that Game no longer starts, or crashes, and team automatically replaces the "missing" Data!
