Honestly, the small group of people that kept MX vs ATV Unleashed (not untamed) have done a superb job compared to what THQ has been able to do in regards to physics. The mods they've released, skins for bikes and gear along with the new animations and physics, keeps this outdated game ahead of Mx vs ATV Untamed.

No matter what THQ does, I'm sure it has the 'on the moon' feeling regardless of what they do- they want to appeal to everyone, not just those who actually ride. They really, really need to add DLC for new tracks and gear/bikes.. that would keep the game fresh but I don't think they will ever do that.

If they release it for PC and keep it open so people can mod, then that'll help with the shelf life.
