About MX vs. ATV Reflex
MX vs. ATV Reflex marks the highly anticipated return of the best-selling off-road racing franchise and features the all-new Rhythm Racing® 2.0 physics engine, Rider Reflex control system and real-time terrain deformation.

Unprecedented terrain deformation creates ever-changing courses as off-road vehicles carve lines and deep ruts that have a real-time impact on gameplay and remain persistent through the full length of each race. Grip tight and hang on, MX vs. ATV Reflex is scheduled to be in stores Holiday 2009. For more information on MX vs. ATV Reflex, please visit www.mxvsatv.com.
