So, is MUD worth buying?

I know a few people on here have the full game already and I'm really on the fence as to whether to spend the money on the full game? So simply I was wondering if the people who already have it, would give their opinion?

I'd be interested in knowing this to, sadly they don't have a release date for the US yet but it would be nice to know if I'm wasting my time waiting for it....

Ehhhh i tried it on my pc a few nights ago. The qualifying practice and everything is okay, the AI are fast, but the tracks feel pretty one dimensional, i've only done 3 round but i havn't seen a real rythem section or anything yet, and maybe two berms. I'm waiting for my ps3 copy to arrive to try online and give it a good crack. I'm supporting it, why not, i supported the other shithole games THQ released.

So I ended up buying it, and I was pleasantly surprised. The official championship mode is very enjoyable, it feels good to have a proper career mode! The Al aren't easy to beat every time out, which again makes it more enjoyable.

IMO it's a lot better than Alive.......but not as good as Reflex, still worth buying though!

Just how good is the AI? I mean are they very tough on every single track?

One of my favourite things about the demo is how good the AI is, to be honest Iv'e yet to beat them on the hardest level. I'm hoping that standard is maintained in the full game, across all the circuits.

Can you disable the boost and scrub crap? No date set for the US yet, bummer.

The Al are very tough on every track, i'm halfway through the championship and only have a two point lead, despite being on the podium every moto. That's another good thing, the good riders always finish at the front, not like Alive where one race Stewart would get second, and the next twelfth. Which really keeps the championship interesting.

You can't fully disable them. But you can get rid of the words that come up on screen like 'prepare to scrub' 'press a' etc. To be honest, that really bugged me at first but without the writing come up you almost forget it's there, and it just becomes part of the game. I honestly think the boost doesn't make a difference at all, I used the boost up one of the really long hills and still got out dragged by one of the Al.

That's great news, thanks. A solid AI and good career mode should give the game a lot of replay value.

thats exactly what I'm thinking, the gameplay might not be as strong as Reflex, but the content and challenge is enough to see the game survive IMO

I can't seem to Save my progress in the championship. There's no save option but if I go to quit it says I'll lose all my shit.

On the official championship? I haven't had a problem, when I back out before a race it always puts me back in where I left off...

There is no such thing as bad conditions, just different types of good.

Your taking the piss right? You realize those words are what the YouTube uploader has overlaid onto the video? Or is my sarcasm sensor broken?

I bought it and I'm not that fussed on it. It's not shit but it's not great either. This my initial review after about 2 hours on it:

Unlike the THQ games, you can't seem to create different user profiles.

I went to the championship option and raced all the rounds and won (on the standard level which is beginner I think). When I finish the championship I get the trophy and then the credits start rolling. Is that it??? It doesn't automatically make you go the the more difficult level or anything...that's entirely up to the player? Or am I missing something???

It's hard not to touch the 'reflex' stick at first. Pulling back on the controller seems to help a little with rollers (they're not really stutters) and uphills. The starts are ridiculous. If you don't release your brake at the EXACT time the gate drops you will get a midpack start at best.

I'll play it some more and get back to you.....but it's sounding more and more like I need to get a new PC and join in the MXS and Reflex online fun....

No it won't....The US Xbox is Region 1 locked so any game that is played on it also has to be region 1...... It is possible to do that with the PS3 since it's region free....

You won't find it, no publishing partner for the US. Most likely it will never be released here.
