Monster Energy Supercross 2 The Official Video Game is the Supercross sequel by Milestone S.r.l. that faithfully recreates the Monster Energy Supercross series including official sponsors and tracks.
Monster Energy Supercross 2 The Official Video Game Graphics:
Sometimes graphics in a game just amaze you with their detail and overall beauty. However, sometimes that same beauty isn’t always easily defined. That’s how I feel about the graphics in the Monster Energy Supercross sequel. They are great, but I can’t pinpoint one specific area that stands out overall.

Monster Energy Supercross 2 The Official Video Game Gameplay:
Once again, Monster Energy Supercross The Official Video Game 2 gives you numerous options to race including Single Event, Time Attack, Career, and a new addition called “Compound”.

However, be careful as that may also attract new rivals to battle throughout the season. Speaking of racing seasons, you now have the option to set your weekly schedule leading up to each week’s event. Don’t need that additional off day? Then fill it with media or a promotional day. If those aren’t exciting enough, challenge a rival or train more instead of resting. Just make sure you are ready to go for the weekend event.
The “Compound” is a new open free roam area where you can practice your tricks and earn points to improve your rider’s skill. As you progress through the game, you can unlock more areas of the compound giving you new areas to explore and new race types to complete. The addition of this new area is probably my favorite new feature.
Creative types will appreciate that the Track Editor is back with even more options to create either realistic-styled tracks or tracks that are just plain fun to ride. Once you’ve completed your masterpiece make sure to upload it for others to see and race.
Multiplayer options have improved and seem to be more active than last year’s release. One criticism I had about multiplayer last year was the inability to mute the audio chat during a race. Apparently, I’m not the only one that felt that way as there are now options to have the mic always on, use a key for push-to-talk, or mute all.
Monster Energy Supercross 2 The Official Video Game Review Final Thoughts:
The first Monster Energy Supercross release was solid, but I really enjoy the new options such as customizing my weekly schedule and the new “Compound” area for improving my skills and tricks. Monster Energy Supercross 2 The Official Video Game standard edition retails for $59.99 and is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC and Nintendo Switch.
