2. MX vs. ATV Supercross Encore

He's number 1 for a reason. 

Supercross Encore is the most recent release in the MX vs. ATV series and is currently in early access. The closest that Encore gets to offering a plotline is in its career mode where players suit up and take on all the big-wigs in motocross culture. Encore is the 6th release in the MX vs. ATV series, and it would seem that the development team is trying to create a solid, familiar experience rather than ramping up to a new innovation-plateau.

Encore comes packed with over 30 tracks, some of which will be familiar to those who have played MX vs. ATX Alive. There are 5 game modes to choose from, 60 officially licensed challengers, and more than 80 brands making their appearances. All of these features do a bang-up job of creating the vortex effect, where real-life melts away and the game lights up all your senses. It is best to share these immersive sensations with a group of friends; Encore has you covered and supports up to 12.

As the controller on the loading screen would suggest, the PC version has been ported over from consoles. This has been the culprit for many issues found within the game, yet the development team is working hard to iron out bugs and other issues that are common with migration. While a few people have written this game off, the fact that it is an early access title, and that the development team is applying frequent updates makes it clear that the team is going to care for their baby. It appears that this care will come in the form of the developers incorporating all the best MX vs. ATX features that have emerged over the lifespan of the franchise.
