  1. will the mx vs ATV alive have the same rider reflex controls because if they make a game with those controls one time and get people used to it they should keep them or have a setting because if it doesn’t i will think twice before buying the game because hundreds of us are used to the controls and would be disappointed in the changes……… reflex will probably be the most dominant mx game still after the release of alive and these games have been released way too soon and have never came to full expectations like mx unleashed it was a very complete mx game and still play it to this day because its very complete

  2. Wow Good job THQ, you absolutely ruined the best game ever. Completely ridiculous, you let every mx’er down with this b.s.. Game sux, don’t waste your money.

    • I know right!? You’d think companies like that would want to make each game an improvement from the last. I loved MX vs ATV Reflex. Alive fucking sucks.

  3. Very Disapointed in Alive, you still have to correct yourself if someone hits ya, there is no supercross and there is no brake gyro! WTF did you do THQ, you ripped everyone off, you said there was not gonna be anything held back even though the game was only 40 bucks,BS ITS LIKE AN ARCADE GAME Its terrible and boring as hell! Who wants to work that hard in a supposedly fun game just to earn skill points and new gear. Get back to basics, make the game fun again this is not fun its stupid. I actually gave the game away it was that bad! Im back to reflex again. I really hope you guys make up for this fuck up!
