Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 6 is ready for you on PlayStation 5. Are you ready? Then check our Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 6 review!
Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 6 is ready for you on PlayStation 5. Are you ready? This one is brought to Sony’s console by Milestone, with the collaboration of Feld Motor Sports and Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship. I need to be honest before getting started: this is a new experience for me, as I am not really big on motorsports. Sure, give me a dartboard or a Snooker cue, and I am happy as a bunny, but motorsports are not something that has managed to catch my eye. Will Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 6 change that? Let’s find out!
First and foremost, let’s start with the Supercross Park. This is basically a free-roam mode where you can ride around and explore, practice your jumps, general motorbike skills, etc. You can play alone or with your friends in co-op mode or in online multiplayer. The multiplayer portion lets you play with up to twelve players. There are lots of different areas with huge massive jump platforms. You get to explore completely different areas with fun segments to play through.
Then you have a mission-based mode aimed at the more experienced players of motorsports. This mode will keep you busy for a while, but the meat of the game is the Career Mode, which you can play with your friends or alone with AI bots. The tracks look authentic, which is made even more authentic thanks to the haptics of the DualSense. I have to say, the implementation is incredible. You can feel the tension in the triggers when you perform certain moves. Career Mode features tons of tracks, some in tougher conditions than others. Based on your performance, you’ll be rewarded with points, with winning races giving you the biggest boost. These will allow you to level up your character, giving you skill points that you can use to develop your character via the skill tree.
Any money you earn in-game you can spend on upgrading your motorbike. The game has plenty of stuff to unlock, including new motorbikes and new customizations. This is another plus of the game since you can customize your character to your liking, from body build to hair style and color. Not only that, but you can also tweak the game settings to your liking. If you aren’t a huge racing fan, you can turn on the automatic settings for cornering, jumping, and so on. The only thing you can control is the throttle, acceleration, speed, and braking. Thanks to these special features, more people will be able to jump into this game.
Since this is a full retail release, there’s a full trophy list for you to work on. It’s a long list with 42 Bronze trophies, 5 Silver trophies, and 3 Gold trophies. The many objectives to complete include earning a ton of SX credits, purchasing ten components for rider customization, completing the different chapters in Career Mode, reaching the podium in 100 main events in any mode, completing a race on every track of the Supercross Park, complete the entire Skill Tree, riding 100 miles in the Supercross Park in offline free-roaming, to name some examples.
Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 6 packs a punch with a variety of modes, lots of customization options, and many brands of motorbikes that you can upgrade with credits you earn from winning races either online or offline. On top of that, there’s also a track editor where you create and upload tracks for others to race on. You also can download and play tracks created by other players from around the world, so there’s lots of replay value for this one. Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 6 is out on PlayStation at a $59.99 price. Since it’s a Cross-Buy title, your $59.99 purchase will give you access to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
