The bottom line of Motocross Mania 3 is that there is little reason to check this title out. Yes, it has an extremely low budget price, but this is the ultimate, “You get what you pay for” scenario. The title has features sub-par racing, horrendous graphics, lackluster audio, and focuses far too much on the weapons gimmick. In the end, the “extreme” genre has many more titles out there that live up the normal set of gaming standards. Motocross Mania 3 feels like a rushed job, looks like a rushed job, and ultimately, in the end, isn’t worth the time of a rental.
The developers tried to incorporate some of the flaws into the gameplay while sweeping the others under the coded rug as though no one would notice. If Motocross Mania 3 has only one redeeming quality it's that it could be the impetus for there never being a Motocross Mania 4.
Motocross Mania 3 aurait pu être une bonne surprise si seulement il avait su combler ses fondements avant de se laisser emporter sur la pente d'un mauvais goût certain (la vision furtive d'un jeune russe s'appellant Oleg Trotsky et qui déclame : "Chiens d'impérialiste" demeure assez gênante) et d'une course à l'amusement mal ciblé. En effet, ce ne sont ni l'effet "ragdoll", ni même la présence de jeunes femmes à forte poitrine qui définissent la valeur d'un jeu, mais bien ses idées et sa profondeur ludique. MM 3 n'a visiblement pas compris cela, et passe d'amusant à lassant en moins d'une heure.
Even if Motocross Mania 3 were to fix some of its glaring design flaws, there are still plenty of excellent games on the market in the same genre. Just last month we reviewed MX World Tour: Featuring Jamie Little. This game received a 5.0, but it qualifies as a far better rental experience than the mess that is Motocross Mania 3.
For what it's worth, MM3 features one of the largest manuals we've ever seen for a budget title, especially a budget title of this type of nominal quality. If a bit more of the development budget had gone into the game's features instead of the manual that describes them, perhaps we could at least recommend this one. As it stands, Motocross Mania 3 is an extremely poor execution of a concept that might have been fun in different hands. Even at a $15 price tag, this game should be avoided.
