Review: Monster Energy Supercross 6

The official videogame

Racing games attract a large audience. However, they are also a Marmite genre. Consequently, you either love or hate their adrenaline-fuelled ways. I love this genre. More specifically, I adore everything to do with motorbikes. Therefore, when Monster Energy Supercross- the official videogame 6 (Monster Energy Supercross 6) hit my desk, I began to salivate.

Now, I understand the normal complaints. People moan about familiar mechanics, a lack of evolution, and how sports games stagnate. However, I couldn’t care less. A new instalment brings fresh graphics, gameplay tweaks, and many hours of mindless action.

Developed and published by Milestone S.r.l, this is an ultra-realistic racing simulation title. What’s more, it has some amazing free ride areas, a plethora of custom options, and many great game modes. Accordingly, it offers exactly what I hoped for, and much more in between.

Jump the start and get ahead of the crowd.

Monster Energy Supercross 6 is massive!

Whenever I play a sports game, I need to have a deep and fulfilling career mode. Additionally, I expect a range of fun and interesting options as well as a competitive online mode. Luckily, Monster Energy Supercross 6 is massive! With a fully customisable career mode, rhythm racing, an academy to explore, and a free-play mode to enjoy, it doesn’t disappoint.

Alongside the offline mode, you’ll tackle a phenomenal but challenging online community. Here, you’ll encounter some of the best global races as you battle for glory across a range of engine classes. The vibrant community was welcoming and loud, but occasionally toxic. Thankfully, it is easy to escape unwanted attention or play with friends in private lobbies.

The best career mode yet. 

Monster Energy Supercross 6 shocked me with its level of detail and ride customisation. As such, this is the best career mode to date. Thanks to the difficulty settings, the action is accommodating to new and veteran gamers alike. Furthermore, the excellent tutorial sets you on your way.

With 3 career layers to master, you’ll climb the ranks however you wish. You can pick your rider’s skills, adjust every layer of the bike, and customise the livery to your liking. What’s more, you’ll have a rival to compete with, contract objectives to complete, cash to earn, and injuries to overcome. Additionally, you can make the action harder or easier depending on how you are feeling.

The ability to alter the gameplay on the fly and tailor your rider and your machine to your style was fantastic. This simple idea ensured that you were committed to your career path throughout your journey to becoming a champion.

More than just a career. 

Though I adore the depth of the career mode, occasionally I wanted a casual experience. This is where the rhythm attack mode and the Supercross Park come into their own. The latter allows you and your friends to arse around on your bikes as you explore unique locations. Moreover, each area is linked to the official tracks, so you can ride freely and practice in your favourite arenas.

Alternatively, the rhythm attack mode challenges you to race over a rough dirt track against one other competitor. Here, you test your balancing skills and bravery as you perfect each hump and race to the finish.

Monster Energy Supercross 6 blew my mind. 

This genre always looks phenomenal. Developers pour their blood, sweat, and tears into an ultra-realistic experience. As such, Monster Energy Supercross 6 blew my mind. The level of detail of every machine and item of clothing was jaw-droppingly good. Moreover, the splatter from the mud, the excellent physics mechanics, and the massive arenas were incredible. On top of this, the fantastic environments and the smooth frame rate enhance the experience.

With so much going on and crashes and carnage unfolding at every angle, I expected this to be messy. However, it was buttery smooth and exciting to play. The developers have delivered a monumental title that looks great and performs better.

Love it or hate it, the loud and obnoxious engines bring this to life. However, the blend of tones and unique sounds for each engine adds another layer of realism. Additionally, the sound of bones crunching and the thud of every crash will make you wince while making your blood pump faster.

Riding like a pro in no time. 

On the surface, there is plenty to learn and master. Yet, thanks to the excellent academy and straightforward tutorial, you’ll be up and running ASAP. Then consider the difficulty settings and you’ll ride like a pro in no time. Moreover, the excellent controller layout, responsive inputs, and user-friendly approach help to alleviate any concerns while flattening out the learning curve.

The career mode keeps you busy for hours. However, the excellent online mode adds a competitive edge. With a new ranking system and a leaderboard to climb, this gets the competitive juices flowing. Additionally, cross-play is enabled and therefore you can challenge your friends no matter the platform.

Monster Energy Supercross 6 is an adrenaline junkie’s best friend. 

If you love bikes or online shenanigans, then this is the game for you. Monster Energy Supercross 6 leaves its predecessors in the dirt thanks to its custom options and excellent, albeit occasionally toxic online action. Furthermore, the incredible visuals, loud audio, and amazing tutorials bring this to life and balance the field. Accordingly, I adored it and I recommend that you buy it here! Can you become the champion of the arena? Race hard, take no prisoners, and aim for the crown.


Monster Energy Supercross 6 is an incredible addition to the franchise. Thanks to its deep career mode and excellent online action, this will keep you busy. On top of this, the graphics are amazing and the audio is obnoxious but brilliant. Furthermore, the difficulty settings and academy make this perfect for veterans and newcomers alike.
