MX vs. ATV Reflex marks the highly anticipated return of the MX vs. ATV® franchise and features the Rhythm Racing 2.0 physics engine, Rider Reflex control system and real-time terrain deformation. The Rider Reflex control system separates machine steering from body positioning, allowing the independently controlled rider to shift his weight, perform death-defying stunts and avoid potentially devastating wrecks. MX vs. ATV Reflex’s unprecedented terrain deformation system ensures no two tracks are ever the same, allowing gamers to carve lines and deep ruts that have a real-time impact on gameplay and remain persistent through the full length of each race.
